How can we improve Work Item Studio?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Make it work again

    The app force closes upon authorization. Please make it work again.

    • Cortana Malfunction

      The concern centers on processing and executing commands, Punchlines-NoGo, and communicating functions /features.

      • Add Tree view and Direct Link view functionalities to Queries

        As a QA user, I rely on Direct Link queries in my workflow and currently do not get any results. The flat list does not provide enough information to make the app useful to me.

        • Add a parameter in Settings to specify a query or use current default for My Work

          As a QA User, I would like to set the landing page to a specific Query. The current My Work has too much information for my role.

          • Collapse my work

            It would be great if Items on My Work could be collapsed based on item type. Like showing only features.

            • Make it available in other Play Store regions and/or provide the APK.

              I would love to start using this but it's not available in the UK. I understand that there may be additional effort in expanding to other Play Store regions but I would be happy to sideload it and work through every early adopter expects. If restricted access to the APK is required, then make it available via MSDN to subscribers.

              • Promote or demote item types

                As a user I would like to promote or demote item types to better meet changing demands for an agile project.

                Often it is needed to change an item that was a PBI it a feature or a feature to an epic and visa versa. Allowing this to be done would greatly reduce rework in fast moving projects where an increasing number of requirements is unavoidable. However, to keep from interrupting a teams cadance, this option should only be available for statuses less than committed.

                • open email alerts links directly with the app

                  When you receive an email alert, clicking the link opens the app instead of the site.
                  If the project is not currently set in the app, prompt to open it.

                  • Decompose stories easier

                    As a user I would like to press a decompose/split button in a current PBI, Feature or task that will carbon copy the existing item and automatically create a link so that I can better decompose items when warrented.
