Features under development

This feature list is a peek into the future. It identifies some of the significant features we are currently working on and a rough timeframe for when you can expect to see them. It is not comprehensive but is intended to provide some visibility into key investments. Most features are linked to a blog post and/or UserVoice entry where you can learn more and comment. These features and dates are the current plans at this time and are subject to change. The “Planned Date” reflects when the feature will be available on VS Online and the “Server” column reflects when it will be available in TFS on-premises, if applicable.
