Team Project Rename – Apr 24

Today we are very happy to announce that our #1 voted UserVoice story, with upwards of 6,000 votes, is ready for teams to start trying and giving feedback. Visual Studio Online customers can now rename team projects in their accounts.

You can access the feature from the admin area in either the Project or Collection Overview page. The screenshot below shows the Collection entry point, via a context menu action.

We’ve worked to make team project rename as seamless as possible by automatically updating names that we have access to and minimizing reaction work to team members. There are still some manual steps—some of which we’ll add automation for over the next couple of deployments—but for the most part reaction work is small. The document Rename a team project highlights the artifacts (Client caches, Git remotes, etc.) that require some extra attention.

It has been a long time in the making, but it feels good to finally call this feature done and get it into your hands.
