Card Style Rules - VSO

Visual Studio Online recently added with some amazing set of features. Capability to apply styles based on rules to a card on Kanban board is one such feature.
The style for card can be set on Backlog or Task boards, by clicking settings.

This will add lot of value to daily scrums, and in other team meetings, since board now effectively showing
  • Items require immediate attention like Critical bugs.
  • Task or Stories not attended for some time.
  • A User Story/PBI that is changed after work started on iteration.
and much more as you can imagine..
For TFS on premise, these will be available in future updates to TFS2015.
