Spruce features from 0.1 to 0.9

January 05, 2011

The following list is the features I’m aiming to implement between version 0.1 and 0.9. Search is a fairly critical one so this will be top of the list, once I’ve finished polishing the UI.


  • Title, desc contains
  • Assigned to, created by etc. contains (autocomplete textbox)
  • Ever support
  • Dates support (ASOF in WIQL)
  • Show WIQL as option
  • “Not” support
  • Other fields support: area, iteration
  • …Powerful but also simple, it should not be feature bloated or trying to compete with the VS interface

Core features

  • Favourites
  • History
  • Relationships (in order of priority) :
  • Linked workitems + the CRUD interface for them: Parent/child, Predecessor/sucessor, Related, * * Affected by/affects,
  • Attachments + CRUD


  • Today, yesterday, this week, etc.
  • Assigned to me, anyone
