I like its MTM (Microsoft Test Manager) section which gives us options to create various test plans and add test cases into it.

TFS’s test management capability without the expensive licensing has large gaps. Users will be unable to access performance testing and coded UI testing capabilities.

Build definitions and releases within the product. allow us to put our latest applications in the field.
It has great functionality: work items, backlogs, source code, build releases, and it's easy to use.

TFS and MTM have their own style of working and they are different from other tools like Jira or TestRail, which are simpler and easy to use.

Microsoft should discontinue the use of SharePoint as I don’t really see any value add to TFS, document management features can be included in TFS web portal itself, if required!

Sometimes we feel that it need more CPU, and RAMs on TFS server, either we implemented the hardware with the product minimum requirements.

Since it is Microsoft, it is technology agnostic, thus it does not really fit into various different technologies in the organization.
We are also using Microsoft Teams. The two products function separately. There is not enough collaboration between Microsoft Teams and TFS.
