    • TFS 2015/TFS 2017 support for VS for Mac instead of Xamarin Studio

      Currently TFS 2015/TFS 2017 require Xamarin Studio being installed, but Xamarin Studio is sun set so it would be nice if TFS 2015/2017 supported VS for Mac when installing a build agent on Mac for building Xamarin iOS projects. You would think this would just work, but it doesn't.

        • Link work item directly by id in commit

          Please add a support linking a work item by adding the ID, a feature of opening a search window is confusing, we usually already know by the web panel the work item

          • Clone in Visual Studio for Mac IDE option from xyz.visualstudio.com/projectfolder from Browser

            Please add support for Cloning into Visual studio for Mac from browser just by choosing IDE from drop down and clicking on Clone button,

            Its frustrating even though TFS/VSTS plugin is there, it wont show all the projects linked somehow

                • My work

                  It would be great if a My Work process like in VS20xx was added to the planned TFS addition.

                  • Option to ignore whitespace

                    When comparing different versions of a file, it would be great to have an option to ignore whitespaces.
