Team Services | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013

We welcome your feedback. Tell us your ideas for improving our content or products.

If you have product feedback—such as a feature request, complaint, or bug—you'll want to go to the right place to enter it. Or, post a question or search one of the forums to find your answer.

Here are the quick-access links to use:

Content feedback

Help us improve our content by rating it and giving us feedback.

   Can't find an answer you're looking for?
   Want more detailed examples?
   Want to know if a specific version is supported?

Use our content feedback channel to let us know (Is this page helpful?) located at the bottom-right of the page. This button appears for all topics under visualstudio.com/docs. If you're looking for an answer and you can't find it, let us know and we'll work to update the topic with an answer. Simply click Yes or /No to rate the topic and fill out the form.

Topic feedback form

About half of the feedback we get is product related. Customers want to know if a feature is supported, or they suggest a new feature. If that's what you want to do, we suggest you submit a request for a new feature through our UserVoice channel, or ask a question in one of our forums to learn if a feature is supported.

You can print most topics using your browser's print function. Most of the latest browser versions for Edge and Chrome provide various options to simplify the contents prior to printing. These browsers also support saving the topic as a pdf file.

Product feedback, report an issue

You can provide feedback for any Visual Studio product from the Visual Studio Feedback Center. Or, from within Visual Studio, you can report a problem and review other trending issues.

Learn about the latest updates

Every three weeks or so we update Team Services and provide a summary of new and updated features through our Product features timeline.

We also publish links to those topics we've recently published or significantly updated through our Content updates page.

Platforms and version support

We add new features all the time, especially to our Team Services cloud offering. Later, most of these features make there way into our on-premises TFS product. To learn about whats new and coming, check out the Features timeline pages.

Our content supports both platforms—Team Services and TFS— and multiple versions of TFS. At the top of each topic, you'll see a platform/version heading to alert you as to which platforms and versions are supported. For example:

Topic platform-version header

In general, a feature is supported for all subsequent versions of TFS, unless specifically noted. Some topics include a link to previous versions which describe how the feature worked for an earlier version of TFS.

If the platform-version heading is missing, and you're unsure of whether it's supported, click the Yes/No link and let us know through our content feedback channel.

What platform/version am I using?

You can tell what platform you use from the URL you use to connect to Team Services or TFS.
