There should be management of the project built-in.They should have design patterns in TFS for the development team, and design patterns for the QA.Integration from Visual Studio could be improved.The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved.I would like to see the reporting features expanded so that I can see details on the users connected to all of the projects.The interface can be improved and made more user-friendly.The test management interface is not very handy.One of the areas that could be improved is to have an effective full lifecycle management.
