I like this tip because it isn’t really how to use features, but rather how to combine features to do new things.

  1. Put the snippets you want others to have access to out on a share.
  2. Go to Tools – Code Snippet Manager, press the Add button and give it the UNC share.
  3. Go to Tools – Import Export Settings, Export, and choose to export just the Code Snippet Locations to a file.
  4. Send out that .vssettings file to those on your team.  They can go to Tools – Import Export Settings, and choose Import.
