She likes this tip because it isn’t really about how to use features but rather how to combine features to do new things.

To share code snippets among others on your team:

  • Go to Tools–Code Snippets Manager, press the Add button, and type in the UNC share name.
  • Go to Tools–Import And Export Settings, Export, and choose to export just the Code Snippets Locations to a file.
  • Send out that .vssettings file to those on your team. They can go to Tools–Import And Export Settings and choose Import to retrieve it.

Happy Programming! =)
