Teams menu is missing in VS 2019 Community Edition latest version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    Wondering if there is any information about why the 'Teams' menu is missing in VS 2019 Community Edition? Is there any way to bring it in somehow? Should I really downgrade to VS 2017? I have VS 2017 Enterprise installed but I don't have access to the account I used for it, so I am unable to open it. Is there a way to somehow downgrade that version?

    I also found this https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/617239/teams-menu-missing.html but no resolution - I installed VS 2019 just few days ago and installed again today on a different computer and in both cases that menu is missing :(

    What can I do?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Apparently, Visual Studio Team Services is now Azure DevOps Services.

  • Hi Richard,

    What exactly does it mean and how should I access it?

    I did a quick search using first link by Dave and found another issue reported (in version 16.2 and I have version 16.4.5). What should I use exactly now?

  • So, do I understand correctly that this is the only way now? The other members of the team use VS (prior edition downloaded) and they all have Teams menu and this is how they access source control. I would not be able to do so using the latest version of VS, right?

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Do you also have idea if VS 2017 community still has Teams menu and if this is the version I may want to use?

  • It might be

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/user-guide/work-team-explorer?view=azure-devops

    but better to ask the experts in dedicated forums I linked. I do use VS periodically but do not use TFS (devops)

  • I started to read your link and the first thing I read was to use menu View/Team Explorer. This seems similar to the original 'Teams' menu I used, so I guess I can try to go from there.

    BTW, I also tried to figure out how to ask question in VS using first link in your original post, but I could not find any support forum.

    Thanks again.

  • I don't think it's the same as forums. I did report it (I think) and there were a few reports already on that same problem I voted and added comment on. I'm also not sure how to change email for VS related responses. It seems to be associated with my previous account's email.

  • I think there are lots of different settings and may be some of my info will be lost :(

    I have several MS accounts already. I used my account (which is associated with the forums). This account uses my gmail email, however I didn't receive any info about problems I reported in VS support. These emails used to come to my previous email  account I don't have access to.

  • I have another problem. I can not figure out how can I create a new MS account. It only gives me option to sign in with one of my existing accounts, but I need to create a new one.
