Many of you have asked to be able to import test cases and test case steps all at once, and now you can! We made some improvements to the test case import that should help making bulk test case creation simple and fast.
If you are using an existing test case import file, the only change you need to make is adding an Object Type column with "Test Case" as the value for every row.
New "Object Type" column allows you to specify what you're importing
By specifying "Test Case" or "Test Case Step" in the Object Type column, you can import multiple work item types at the same time.
Line references let you import test cases and their associated steps all at once
Associate the test case steps to a test case in the same file using line references. For test cases that already exist, you can also use the formatted ID or the WSAPI reference.
Validate before you import
New validation button will allow you to check your work before you import. For any customers that want to copy the same test case and test case steps, this lets you check one to use as a template for the other importing.
Some things to note:
Please give it a try and let us know what you think! More information can be found on the help page.

Product Announcement - New Test Case Import
Hi grama23 when you state "you can import multiple work item types at the same time." is this restricted to Test Cases and Test Steps or does it allow you to import for example user stories and defects from one file?

Good question Sheri. At this time, we are only officially supporting importing test cases and test case steps with the new import. However, if you try different artifact types in the Object Type column, the import may work as expected. Let us know if you have any other questions!
Ok. Only took 8 years for my idea to be implemented. Thank you!
