    In "Plan and Prioritize", you can see the "Selected Effort" in hours. It looks at the total time. I'd also like to see the actual total "Effort" from PBI and bugs.

  2. Automatically open a reply-all email with WI table that includes new WI

    When I open a WI from an email, I want TeamCompanion to open a reply-all to the original email, including the new WI's TFS ID in the subject line, and a WI table that includes the new WI in the body.

  3. Options -> Send Email: only subject and body are supported. Provide a similar table as in "Create WI from Mail" to associate values.

    Allow the association of all fields of the mail and WI objects in the same way as it is given in "Create WI from Mail". At least the mapping of Mail.To and CC with Originator and AssignedTo would be very helpful.

  5. Option/Settings export- and importable

    We installed TeamCompanion for about 25 users. We want to define a default option set to deploy that to every user eg:
    - Create WI from Mail (specific userdefined fields)
    - Subject Line of an Email
    - Mail parsing options

  6. Set a default query when Attaching Mail to Work Item

    I would like to be able to set a default query when I click the “Attach Mail to Work Item” button. I attach emails to my tickets all day long, and 95% of the time I use the same query. Yet each and every time I have to click through the folder hierarchy to locate the “My Queries” folder, followed by the query I use most often. It may not seem like a lot, but when I attach upwards of 10-20 emails daily, each click locate the query is a loss of efficiency.

  7. add support for hierarchies when sending query results in a mail

    When right-clicking a "hierachical query" or "wi with links" query and using "Send query results by mail", currently the hierarchy gets lost (same in VS built inn functionality). It would be nice and an outstanding feature to somehow visualize the hierarchy e,g, by indenting child items

  8. Add filter for resolved Bugs

    We are using User Stories, Bugs and Issues as top level items. We add tasks to them to measure the time on each top item. But when a bug is resolved it would be nice to be able to filter it out the view. A new other setting "Show only active top items" would help.

  9. It would be nice to have different work item types coloured differently.

    Colouring each work item type with different colour would be very helpful to improve overall user experience when handling lots of work items.

    We have been having configurable formats for different work items and work item types on our backlog for some time now. As of this moment we haven’t committed to support it in any specific future release, but we will definitely support it in time.

  10. Conditional Formatting for Views

    In a previous version you had it already so that a user could create rules and formats for conditional formatting for each view.
    This helped a lot to differenciate visually between work item types, work item states, user def field values etc.
    Unfortunately the function was removed but hopefully it comes back.

  11. Mark a certain Work Item as read in all Queries with one click

    Unlike the behavior of the regular search folder of Outlook a work item has to be selected in every querywhere it appears to mark it as read.
    E.g. you have a query showing Active Work Items and another one showing only My Active Work Items.
    If I get a new Work Item, both queries show me a new entry by a bold query name and a number.
    But I have to open both queries and select the item two times to reset that indication.
    Would be nice if a query would notice the change on a certain Work Item even…

  12. Persist view state for grouped items between folder switches

    If you use the grouping function for a work item view and collapse groups, all are expanded again when you change to another folder and get back to the query

  13. "Copy Work Item Shortcut" Option on Context Menu for Work Item Form

    When you open a work item form in Visual Studio Team Explorer, you get a nice option on the context menu to "Copy Work Item Shortcut." This allows you to copy the full Team Web Access URL of the work item to the clipboard so you can use it in other applications (including Outlook).

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have added it to our backlog and we will implement it in one of our upcoming releases.
    Until we implement this, you can use the „Copy Work Item URL“ action from the context menu for the work item query result grid.
    Thanks,
    Ognjen

  14. Order the list of work items in Go To Workitem by usage order

    The dropdown of the Go to work item should have the entered ordered by last usage instead of numeric order.

    last recently used makes more sense than numeric order

  16. Use toolbar icons

    As a user I like to see icons in the toolbar next to commands like "Close", "Save and Close" and "Refresh" (for example "Done" has an toolbar icon).

  17. Allow use of email templates

    Allow the possibility to create and manage email templates (multiples) to be used on the send query results by email.

    This means not only the capacity to adornate the email with content (for example an header, a content, the work items list and footer) preferably the content should be fully customizable

    But also the ability to define the template of the work items list (color, alternate headers,etc,etc).

    This is the full vision, for starters i would be happy with just the ability to define something like

    TEXT
    TEXT
    <WORK ITEM LIST>
    TEXT
    TEXT

  18. When a WI is created from an email automatically send a reply acknowledging the fact

    When we create a WI from an email, automatically send an email to the sender acknowledging the fact that the email has been "accepted". The content of the email should be configurable and allow the use of macros.

    For example the WI ID

    The email could be sent or not on a WI by WI basis, by having a checkbox on the create WI window

  19. Support creating work items while offline

    Currently you need to be online to create work items. How about making it possible to create work items while you are not connected to TFS?
