In case you missed the tweets, we’ve recently added support for importing Site Columns right into your SharePoint Project. To do that simply click with right mouse button on a column in the Server Explorer and click on Import.
The selected column will get imported to the active SharePoint Project in your Solution.
Importing single Fields is just a little step we made towards simplifying working with Site Columns and Content Types. Right now we’re discussing other possibilities of how we could further improve CKS:DEV and make importing SharePoint artifacts even easier and faster. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have some great ideas: we do listen and we do make it happen.
Although Importing Fields is not quite enough for a whole new release you can get it right now from CodePlex. Simply download the latest version of the source, and build it, and the Import Field option will appear under the Field menu.
