Agile Portfolio Management for the largest projects

Big projects often mean multiple teams and added complexity. Visual Studio Online Advanced includes portfolio backlogs for breaking down work into manageable chunks. Create an independently customizable backlog for each of your teams while allowing work to be shared between them.

Connect stakeholders

Make it easy for stakeholders to be informed and involved in your project with Visual Studio Online Advanced. Integrated feedback requests are an easy way for stakeholders to provide rich feedback—including annotated screenshots—directly to the development team. Create customized charts to track bugs, tasks and the team’s most important work.

Bring bigger teams closer together

Team Rooms provide a forum for all team members to share information and collaborate. Discuss work in progress, link directly to work items, and view live events like build completions or feedback responses. Team Rooms are great for daily standups, connecting with remote team members, and as an archive of project activity.

Lightweight testing

Manage and run manual tests directly from Visual Studio Online with web-based test case management. Create test suites from work item queries to make test planning easier and to automatically link tests back to requirements. Assign tests to testers, and run them on any device using an integrated browser-based test runner. Bugs from failed tests are automatically linked back to tests, helping keep developers and testers connected.
