@Jason:Hi Jason! Thanks for your feedback on work item rules. You mention enforcing links on work items is one of the biggest problems you're encountering. Can you tell me a little more about your workflow? Why individuals in your org are not creating these links?
@Suresh Kumar: Thank you for the AMAZING feedback! We certainly understand there are a lot of scenarios yet to be enabled, and we have every intention of investing in these areas to make the offering even better. As always, it is simply a matter of prioritization. As we continue investing in this and other areas, I would love to have your continued feedback and input. Feel free to reach out to me at charles dot taylor at microsoft dot com, so we can follow up offline and talk about these scenarios more.
@Steve: Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately, this new Work Item Rules UI is only available on VSTS. Currently, while the new UI is powerful, it does not support all possible rule configurations supported via XML with TFS. As such, we have not made definitive plans to bring this experience to TFS.
In the meantime, we are continuing to invest in the UI and build out added experiences to fill some of these gaps.
@lef: Thanks for the feedback! We have definitely heard the request for the ability to achieve more powerful scenarios with the new Work Item Rules experience. We do not have definitive plans to tackle those scenarios you mentioned, but they are on our backlog. And as I mentioned, this is definitely not something we are walking away from. We want to continue improving the experience and making it more robust.
