Want to customize the Microsoft Test Manager UI?

Have you ever wondered if you could customize the UI for Microsoft Test Manager? The answer is yep, you sure can. For instance, on the Test Plan screen, simply right click on the column headings and a list of all fields that are part of a test case will pop up, as shown below.  You can add or remove fields, simply by clicking on each field’s name. See image below.

Also, the test cases can also be grouped by left clicking on a column heading and dragging it to the “Drag a column header here to group by that column” section of the UI. In the screen image below, I’ve grouped them by Title, then by Priority. I’ve highlighted the grouping section in red, below.
