Collecting User Feedback using HockeyApp and tracking them in Visual Studio Team Services

By | May 23, 2016

We can use HockeyApp to create bugs for crash reports and track feedback using Visual Studio Team Services.   In one of our previous post we have discussed about Tracking Bug with HockeyApp for Universal Windows Apps .  In this post let’s have a quick look on how to track user feedbacks and tracking them as task in VSTS.  we can use the feedback feature for any app deployed app in HockeyApp .  While HockeyApp manages all the feedback as discussion in the Web Portal, We can track them in TFS as well and assign it to respective developer for work on further.

While Configuring Visual Studio Team Services for BugTracker make sure you are also selecting “Feedback”.
