Auto sync with TFS

The integration with TFS has a lot of potential, but it's still work to have to remember to click the Action then Update TFS.  If some product owners forget, then we have to audit what features and requirements are in both systems and see which ones need to be updated.  It would be much easier if Aha would push updates to TFS when the status is changed.  

Description updates could get tricky if TFS has been modified.  We wouldn't want to overwrite Dev notes in TFS, but if TFS is pushing updates to Aha with the webhook, they should just stay in sync.

    We have launched enhanced VSTS and TFS integrations. These integrations will allow you to enable ongoing updates to be automatically sent to VSTS and TFS along with several other new capabilities including the ability to:

    • Set record mappings for Aha! initiatives, releases, master features, features, and requirements and link them to nearly any corresponding record type
    • Map default or custom fields in Aha! to any “like” field and specify which direction the updates should flow (e.g. from Aha! or from VSTS/TFS)
    • Automatically send outgoing changes from Aha! or choose to review and approve them
    • Import records directly from VSTS and TFS to make getting started in Aha! easy

    This would be great, the last line is the most important to us.  We would like to see the devs about to update their tfs items and have those reflected back up into aha for the managers to interact with.

    This is very important and would be a good second step to making this a really useful integration.

    This is really a request for bi-directional sync of Features, Requirements/PBI and Stories which is sorely needed. Sync should be automatic.
