Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with TFS.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I would like to see TFS integrated with a project management solution, such as Microsoft EPM. Right now, it is isolated from EPM but if we could somehow connect it, then that would help a lot. As it is now, the results are not easy to report to project managers, which makes it difficult to estimate both cost and the time to completion. The interface can be improved and made more user-friendly.
The test management interface is not very handy. I would like to see improved metrics in MTM.
One of the areas that could be improved is to have an effective full life-cycle management. For example, when the developing team has an issue with a bug, they can relate and tag sources and builds to that bug, but after that, it's not easy to track if those builds where in fact deployed. In the next release, I would l like to see a modern solution with a full integration of the real life-cycle.
In the next release, I would like them to include integration for various projects, similar to what JIRA has, and they could create this feature on the dashboard. If they could create a feature to allow us to see the dashboards with all of the products, it would be useful.
The dashboard needs more enhancements.
More options could be provided from the perspective of requirements management, which would help product owners to use the tool effectively.
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.
Right now they are up to standard. All the features that we needed are included currently in TFS, including Git repository which allows our developers to perform their code-testing without impacting by uploading the latest code in TFS. It fits all of our needs.
