Let us create multiple collections on Visual Studio Team Services
As an organization with 25+ developers and 15+ ongoing/supported projects for several customers, we need the ability to group our team projects into different project collections.
I am sure we are not the only ones.
Work is still ongoing for our plan to enable an Organizations experience for Team Services. We will open up a private preview in 2017 H2 for interested customers to sign up to use this feature. I will provide another update when we are close to open up the private preview.

I am interested in the private preview for my organization.

how can my team join to the beta

My company is currently in the process of evaluating vsts and this feature would be a major swing factor for justifying vsts.
How can I sign up for the private preview to evaluate this feature.
Brad Leach commented
I want to be in the Private Preview too. We are planning our migration to VSTS. We have 2 on-prem servers. I've read the migration guide. I want to see how naming & URLs sort out as I migrate our 2 main collections.
At this point, I created one account - <company>.visualstudio.com. Can I create another "account"/URL while still logged in with my same Visual Studio subscription? I don't see a way to do it.

Hi Team, any update on this? We desperately need this feature.
Is there any update on this feature.
Hi Microsoft, could you please share an update on this? thanks!
Martin Fletcher commented
Is there any update on when this feature will be landing?

This ir really a problem. In our organization we have more or less 15 projects and a distributed team of 10 elements, it's really difficult to plan sprints and to know if someone it's overlocated or not. I also think we need a point of view from the resource. Each team member should be able to see his own work from all projects.

Is there a planned date for the release of this feature?

Currently using VSO for greenfield project&team... but need to migrate from on-prem TFS2008 and team to VSO... having issues with needing multiple releases/sprints running in parallel for the different projects. This may solve that?
We do have shared code between projects as well.
Solution is needed to have all teams/projects in VSO but allow different process templates and/or Release/sprints while RETAINING the ability for a single developer to have a single pain of glass to see all outstanding work across all of the VSO team projects.

this is causing us massive issue. i need a collection per region. the fact that there's a default collection infers others can be created...
Jason Nichols commented
I just want to be able to rename the collection from 'default collection' to my domain name.
TFS Program Manager says "This is a great idea!". WOW, if you had "DefaultCollection" surely it comes across your mind at some stage it's a must-have feature to allow users to create multiple collections? And from a technical point of view, how difficult can it be to do such a simple thing?
COME ON M$!
Yep Multiple Collections would make life much better. One collection is too simple even for limited development in a multi application environment
I'll add another +1. With multiple in house projects, AND multiple clients, each with many projects, the ability to group a client's projects is critical. May make us move to inhouse (we have the license)

We need this for distribute application and multiple independent teams
