How can we improve Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS)?

Team Explorer - Home - make it more functional with live information about each hub

I seldom use the "Home" hub in team explorer. It would be nice to use this as a dashboard so that I can see things like:

* Last build status (pass/failed, time taken, who requested it)
* Pending Changes hub - # Edits | # Adds | # Conflicts
* My Work - Show in progress work items
* Source Control - Latest changeset number, last person to checkin

See the mockup and discussion here:

    Thanks for your great suggestion. In an ideal world with unlimited capacity, we would have implemented every single piece of customer feedback. However we live in reality and we need to make tough decisions, including the decision to focus on areas that make the most impact. The voting system in User Voice is a great platform to measure which improvements make the most impact. We also want to be open and transparent with you that this suggestion will not be part of the next release. We will keep the suggestion on our own backlogs, and archive it in User Voice. This gives back your votes so you can use it on other suggestions and tell us what other improvements will have the most impact in your daily life using TFS/VSO.
