Three COOL features we noticed on Visual Studio Team Services

We continue highlighting new features on Visual Studio Team Services that are proving really productive for our project teams. Make sure your bookmark and follow Visual Studio News page, which informs you on all the latest updates.

This time we picked three features, while working on the backlog of a demo project.

Mention using @ and #

Type @ to reference a user, or # to quickly mention or provide a link to another work item as part of a comment.
This feature really lights up Pull Requests and work item discussions!


Move Tasks

Many of our teams manage and track their projects using the Kanban board, even adding, updating and re-ordering tasks.
As shown in the animation below, you can even move tasks between cards, automatically re-parenting the tasks.


Copy – Paste (work items) HTML

Planning to include a list of work items as a formatted table in an email or document? Here’s a quick demo of selecting a batch of work items, copying as HTML and pasting the information into a document. Quick and simple!


We need your ideas and feedback!
