Its really annoying to open a new browser window every time. Please just let me stay in visual studio.
We have a lot of investment taking place on our code review platform that will enable iterative code reviews, and we will initially bring that functionality to Git (via pull requests). Improving iterative code reviews for TFVC is still on our backlog, but it is not in our 6 month plan, so we are resetting the status.
We are using the tool and like it, but would like to be able to respond to a code review with new code and comments.
At the moment we basically close the review and start a new one (as others have said) I would like to be able to do the code review and then make changes to the code and have them attached to the same review. We should be able to see the alternatives side by side. and we should be able to navigate forwards and backwards through the changes.
Hi, I guess I missed your comment when you made it. Hopefully this is not to late.
I think it should just get checked into TFS. Although I don't really know if a repo needs to be created or not. Perhaps it creates a repo, I don't really care. I want it abstracted away from me so that I don't have to know. I really only want to do 2 things get the code, and when I have finished updating it I want to contribute it back.
In between these actions I will use TFService.
Github is a whole new knowledge domain that I don't really want to learn. Its complex and obtuse and is only relevant because it is so popular. I have a open source project on github which I created mainly to learn about Github, so its not like I am making these comments without trying to use the product.
When I cloned in windows It did create a repo on my machine, but I found trying to use the repo painful. When I tried to used my laptop instead of my Desktop it was very confusing, how do I develop on multiple machines. I had tried creating another repo (on my laptop) but I was never sure how to check code in in one repo and then get it in the other repo. In the end I gave up and checked it into TFS which I can easily connect to on any workstation. When I was done I copied it back into the repo and then pushed to the server.
The date for our new reporting story has been moved to the first half of next year. This new service will be our answer for understanding your development processes using tools like PowerBI Desktop, PowerBI.com, Excel Online or if you want to scale up to Analysis Services will all be supported by our new Analytics Service (OData v4 endpoint) in TFS and VSTS.
Along with the new Analytics Service we will provide a model template that you can download to your desktop and get started right away using a set of pre-defined calculations and example reports.
