          We’ll send you updates on this idea

          Unfortunately we have had to make the decision to not bring the new Inheritance model to TFS on-prem with the next major release. It was a tough decision that we didn’t take lightly. The scope cuts that we had to make in order to deliver it to on-prem were just too painful, and would not give the User Experience we would be proud of.

          We are still planning to bring it to our on-prem customers in a future release of TFS.

          Sorry for not having a better answer.

            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.

              Enabling the ability to move projects between collections is a feature that we’re committed to delivering. Since this feature is so highly requested, I’d like to provide some additional details behind why this has been pushed out.

              Simply put the issue is the cost to complete this feature. One way to think of it is that it’s XXXL in T-shirt sizing. A Team Project Collection (TPC) is a pretty rigid bounding container. It‘s the scope at which a number of “global” things exist.

              One such example is change set numbers. They start at 1 and count up in each TPC. That means projects in a TPC can’t have overlapping change set numbers. It also means that if you wanted to move TFVC projects between TPCs, you have to renumber all the change sets. That’s exacerbated by a requirement that change set numbers be time ordered. That means…

                Since December we have come a long way. We have added states customization, gave you the ability to customize your portfolio backlogs.

                We are close to deliver the customization of rules to you and allow you to share fields across multiple processes. After that we want to allow you to clone processes and share a process across accounts. Also we plan to give you a full set of REST APIs to automate picklists. You should see these improvements coming alive in VSTS in the next 2 to 4 months.

                Once that is completed we want to extend the feature to “move team projects between processes” today it is limited. You can only move a project from Inherited to its parent and vice versa. We want to give you the ability to move a team project from any process to any other process which enables a conversion from Agile to Scrum,…

                  (Update 10/18)
                  Hello again,

                  I’m Will Buik, a Technical Product Manager on Visual Studio’s IDE team and I am back with an update. We have added an experimental feature to Visual Studio “15” Preview 5 that improves the time it takes to load Solutions. The feature is disabled by default, but you can turn it on through Tools→Options, “Projects and Solutions”→General→“Lightweight Solution load.”

                  We would love to hear your feedback about how lightweight Solution load works for you. If you are interested in participating in a quick user study to give us some feedback about the feature please fill out this brief survey: https://aka.ms/w2kt3j. We will reach out to you soon.

                  If you are interested in learning more about lightweight Solution load, check out the VS Blog: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudio/2016/10/11/shorter-solution-load-time-in-visual-studio-15/
                  You can download Visual Studio “15” Preview 5 here – https://www.visualstudio.com/visual-studio-pre-release-downloads/

                  Thanks everyone, we look forward to your feedback.
                  -Will
