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.

    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.
