This project is empty other than a few commits.
I think the UI should:
#1 Let me know what stuff is empty
#2 Guide me to any new stuff. In this case since I I have not opened the commits, I would like a red dot (like WeChat – the most popular app in China).
Figure: Adding 2 red dots on the newly added commits by someone else, would encourage me to click on the only useful areas

I have a new project, I am a new user, I have not entered a comment.
I open this combo and nothing happens when I click on any of these 3 options.
It is weird for it to do nothing upon any selection.
Can you change it to show numbers like:
All comments (0)
Even better – replace the 3 choices with the text: “Put your 1
st comment on the code”

Dear Product Planners,
I want to add a comment “You need to do smaller check-ins”… where do people put that today?
I’d like to see it on this commits right click menu.
Figure: Allow me to comment on the check-in size
I’d love to know why I can *
not* comment at the Commit level.
I should be able to say “Where is the xxx file?” – basically a general comment on the overall commit. I can comment on each file, so why not on the commit?
Figure: After drilling in, there is no option in this “…” that says “Comment”
A couple of projects were added today and I would love them to be sitting at the top. Alternatively, give me a sort combo (see red box)
And since I have not opened them, I would like a red dot (like WeChat – the most popular app in China).
Figure: Allow me to sort these projects

Eg. 3 comments from 5 team members should show 15 comments.
Would it make sense to add a menu:
Repros | Comments ?
Then I would see a grid of those 15 comments.
In addition, it would be great to be able to hit a button “Send Email” to let your boss get an email:
“Hey, just did this bunch of comments on the code. It would be good if we could get this project prioritized next week.”
Figure: Allow us to see the current comments to resolve

In China, everything is hard and amazing. Chinese users on an iPhone have no trouble downloading Teams.
Android users, talk about plenty of pain if they go down the wrong route.
Basically, they find it hard to download. The Teams website, tells you to download it via the Google store which is bad advice in China (all Google services are blocked by the Great Firewall of China 🇨🇳).
Here is one example of a senior developer:
It took me about 4 hours to install Teams, more specifically to download it
I tried to install it via Google services first, but obviously, it failed.
Then I searched and downloaded 3 APK files from my PC, but all of them are too old.
Finally, I installed it from Mi store (aka Xiaomi store).
In China, no you don’t need a get on a VPN to get Teams downloaded. For an Android user, you have 2 options to install. You can install it via the Mi store or AppChina. The Mi store is the best approach – Eden Liang (from SSW in Hangzhou) has recorded a video to help others. Here is the video:
I am on a mobile device a lot E.g. iOS and often people send tasks on it.
Currently, I can only select 1 message at a time and copy and paste somewhere else.
Allow me to select a bunch of messages and pop up the menu and see:
Copy and paste
Send to a new email
Send to OneNote
Send to Azure DevOps work item
Send to Trello
Figure: I want to combine these 4 messages and send to an email
During a sprint review, I watched Alvin enter a whole lot of data, close the form, click ‘ok’ and then lose all his work. Grrr!
Let’s change the OK button!
Figure 1: The default OK button tend to lead people not save the changes
The default ‘OK’ button led me to not save the changes. Which was very confusing!
On the other hand, most apps have the default button as
Save the changes (e.g. Microsoft Word).
That is much more user-friendly.
Figure 2: The default button always saves the changes
This is important and in my opinion, I hope Microsoft fix this to make more sense.
Give us PowerBI for history graphs on the data E.g. Air conditioner
