Offline Test Execution

The Offline Test Execution extension, created by Josh Garverick, Mattias Sköld, and Utkarsh Shigihalli, allows testers to perform Test Steps even if disconnected from Visual Studio Team Services, using an exported Excel Spreadsheet.



Export the entire test plan, or a filtered selection, to an Excel file. Filter the export to the entire test plan, the selected suite with or without children, configuration and/or tester before exporting.


Offline execution

View test cases offline in excel and mark them as passed, failed or blocked.


Import outcome

Import the outcome from excel to your test plan.

What’s next?

This is the first preview, so your feedback will influence the backlog for this extension.

We’re planning TFS on-prem support for TFS 2017 Update 1 (or higher).
