Aha! Feature Rank should be sent to TFS during integration updates

We currently have to use the Feature Board in Aha! to prioritize the features. and then we have to use the Feature Board in TFS to apply the same order.  The Feature Rank is not included in the integration with TFS.  We need a process that synchronizes the expected release and feature rank so we don't have to do duplicate work to keep priorities in the two systems aligned.

    We have launched enhanced VSTS and TFS integrations. These integrations will allow you to sync the Aha! feature rank (i.e. position) 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
    Check out the blog post for more details.

    I agree, this would eliminate duplicate work for us as well.

    This is a massive inefficiency at the moment as the primary scheduling mechanism gets lost between the prioritisation system (Aha) and the scheduling / job management system (VSO)
