Visual Studio Team Services – NEW FEATURE: Create branch and links to related artifacts


This feature set was included in the January update... 

Create branch and links to related artifacts

I’m excited to announce that you can now create a branch directly from a work item! The work item form has a new development section that displays linked branches, commits, and pull requests, and helps users take the next steps in their development workflow by providing context-aware links such as "Create a branch". When a branch is created this way, links will automatically be created to the related work item, enabling faster and simpler workflows.

You will also be able to create a branch directly from the Kanban board.

In the same way as the work item form, the pull request details view has been updated to include a Related Work Items section. The Related Work Items section lists all of the work items that are linked to a given pull request and provides a simple experience for adding links to more work items.
