  • Hi,

    If you TFS version is higher than TFS 2013.3, then you can refer to these steps to track the history of test suite.

    1. Testing Center > Plan
    2. Right click a suite > Open test suite
    3. Check history (All changes)

  • In TFS, follow these steps:

    Step 1:  Type Test Case ID into the search bar.

    Step 2:  If your test case comes up, then click into your test suite it belongs to.

    Step 3 : Click on "Add existing" 

    Step 4:  In the "And" filter line, enter ID for Field and the test case ID for Value

    Step 5: Click on Run query

    Step 6:  Choose your "lost" test case and click add to suite.

    Step 7:  Rejoice!
