We’ve seen this climbing in recent months, and we recently revisited the priority of this on the backlog. It’s currently on our list of items we want to tackle in the next few months. I’ll update when it’s officially part of our 3-sprint plan.

Enabling users to customer their column on the task board, has been an outstanding wish for us for a long time. A year ago we were planning to pick this one up, but unfortunately we were not able to get to it because of other priorities. We have kept the state of the user voice item as Planned for a long time, as it was always on the edge of being picked up.
In our latest planning cycle, it is clear that it is still high on our list, but we won’t be able to get to it in the next 3-6 months. In a few months we will have our next planning cycle, and it will be again one of the features that we desperately want to deliver to you. I hope to have better news in a few months. Sorry.

We are excited to let you know that we are working on this suggestion. We expect to release this feature early next year.

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 (was delayed due to other priorities) for our plan to bring multiple accounts (collections) backed by the same Azure AD into an organization. We are now looking at 2018 H2 for bringing this to a public preview. I will be able to provide a more precise timeline update around May 2018.

We are still committed to delivering the ability to move projects between collections, however we’ve been unable to make additional progress on this feature. The challenges highlighted in the earlier post are still present and unfortunately this work is still on hold. We recognize this is a highly requested / needed feature, however I don’t foresee us making additional progress on this feature within the next 6 months. We will provide an update once we start planning for the second half of 2018.

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.
