Visual Studio Team Services – NEW FEATURES: 2 Big Widget Improvements (building widgets & the markdown widget)


This feature set was included in the January update… 

Build widgets in the catalog

As Karen wrote about in the dashboards futures blog, one area we’re focusing on is improving the discoverability and ease in bringing different charts to your dashboard. With this update, you’ll see a new option to add a build history chart from the dashboard catalog, and you’ll be able to configure the build definition displayed directly from the dashboard.

Markdown widget with file from repository

The first version of the markdown widget allowed custom markdown stored inside the widget. You can now choose to display any markdown file in your existing repository.

Or add the file to any dashboard in your team project directly from the Code Explorer.

    Would be possible for me to build Widgets for Windows 8.1 or it's only used by MSFT?

  2. Inn, I think you need to ask this in a Windows Development forum.
