  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Including a QR Code in the "Send as E-Mail" Feature for Work Items

    I would love to have a QR code be right-aligned in the white space at the top of the e-mail.

    The QR Code would encode the URL for the work item link to Team Web Access so a mobile user could open it up by using any number of QR Code Readers. This is more for scenarios where someone has printed out e-mails that came from TeamCompanion (i.e. user story details for a daily standup). They could then use their mobile device or tablet that has a camera to snap the QR Code and immediately go to Team Web Access.

  6. Plan & prioritize grid to show different kinds of linked workitems, i.e. test cases

    We use user stories to describe what needs to be done. For each test case we write few test cases. It is natural to have tested by-tests relationship between stories and test cases but we have to use parent-child relationship to get them displayed in the grid.

    The idea would be to enable support for displaying hierarchy for different kinds of links, not just parent-child.

  7. 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

  8. "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

    We are currently analyzing different options how to handle values that don’t fit in the available space in the grid cell. In addition to supporting multiline display within a cell, we are considering just showing three dots at the end of the text to signal that there is more than is visible, additionally providing tooltip with the complete value. We have some other ideas as well.
    Any further suggestions on how to handle long texts are very welcome.

  10. 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

  12. Overall Performance Tuning

    Especially when selecting a work item query in Outlook, it takes quite a while before results are displayed.

  13. 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).

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. 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?
