How to add iterations in Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS)?

Lately, we've had some customers with the question, "Where is the + sign to add Iterations in VSTS?"

There is a slight change in the way how you normally add Iterations in Visual Studio team System (VSTS).

Here are the steps:

  1. Click on the 3 dots (…) that you see on the top right hand corner as soon as you login to VSTS
  2. This will take you to a new tab with Settings/control Panel
  3. Now make sure you are in the project selection level node.



Select the project from the list

  1. Select the project and click on work, this will take you to a page as below:


  1. Add the Iteration and give appropriate date range
  1. Now click on the “click here button” this will take you to the default team’s iterations settings page.
  2. This will take you to a page as below:
  1. Click on select Iteration and add the Iteration to your Team
  1. Now you will see the iterations selected
    Hope this helps!

    The interface is looking much more modern now 🙂 but…. as an admin I found this change pretty frustrating for bulk adding iterations; to go from the ability to check multiple boxes quickly, to having to click add, then search for the iteration, then click select, and repeat for every iteration feels a bit clunky.
