Question!

In TFS v.Next build there is a possibility for parallel builds. However, I think it only works to build multiple configurations / platforms in parallel. (See this)

You can specify multiple projects/solutions to build in the Projects field of the Visual Studio Build or the MSBuild build tasks.

Is there a way to build these multiple solutions in parallel to save some time?

Answers

You are correct. Multi-configuration is used to Build multiple configurations with the same steps, not multiple solutions. If you use Release, you may have multiple environments to achieve multiple solutions in parallel.

But for Build, no such option by default, you may submit a User Voice at website https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio-2015
