    Hi 

    I was hoping to be able to synch the "Acceptance Criteria" in TeamPulse with a field in TFS, by adding a line similiar to the one below in the Synchronisation Mappings XML file.

     <EntityMappings>
        <EntityMapping TeamPulseEntityName="Story" DestinationEntityName="Product Backlog Item">
          <FieldMappings>
             ......
            <FieldMapping TeamPulseFieldName="AcceptanceCriteria" TeamPulseFieldType="string" DestinationFieldName="Microsoft.VSTS.Common.AcceptanceCriteria" DestinationFieldDisplayName="Acceptance Criteria" DestinationFieldType="html" />

    Is it possible to do this as I could not find the correct TeamPulseFieldName to match "Acceptance Criteria".

    Many thanks

    Jon

    Hello Jonathan,

    Unfortunately we do not currently provide a mechanism for syncing collection-level children of stories, with the one exception of Tasks. This is currently in our backlog of features we want to add to the synchronization service but at this point in time it has not been specifically scheduled for a release.

    Kind regards,

    Is this issue on the PITS system, as I would like to vote for it. It's quite a problem not being able to synch some of these important fields and diminishes the usability of the Teampulse software with TFS.

    Hello Jonathan,

     You can enter feature requests in the PITS system by going to the PITS web site (http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx) and selecting TeamPulse.  At this point you can select Feature Request and it bring you to the support resources page.  At this point, click on Contact Support Team and submit a support ticket of type feature request.

    Hey Jonathan-

    I am with you.  We are fighting hard to use Team Pulse integrated with TFS here at Microsoft and we are struggling mightly.  The key thing we like about Team Pulse is the planning features but the Acceptance Criteria system is so vastly different than the HTML control field in TFS that it is going to be a challenge for us to use. 

    In short, we totally agree.  If you can point me to where in PITS to vote I will be right on there with you!

    Thanks,
    -Chris

    I could not find it either.  I'm happy to do this, though, if no one else is going to do it.  I'm that passionate about this issue.

    Chris,

    I tried and failed. Maybe you'll have better luck.
