Tell Microsoft what you think


Does something in a Microsoft product bother you? Here's how you can tell them, and how you can influence the roadmap.

The way to give feedback to Microsoft is not a secret, though it is not well publicised outside various tech communities. Even so, there is no central location to deliver feedback, with each separate product having its own platform, some using UserVoice, some using an app, some within their own domain.

iTWire has gathered these together to provide a list of key Microsoft feedback-gathering sites.

If you have an opinion on what Microsoft needs to do better it's well worth your time to sign in, search to see if your idea has already been put forward, then either vote for it or submit it.

It is already telling, I believe, that the top 10 Visual Studio gripes are being addressed in the release candidates of Visual Studio 2017 already, as one example.

Feedback Hub

For both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Phone, you may review, vote on, and submit feedback through the universal Feedback Hub app.

As a universal Windows app, the Feedback Hub also runs on the HoloLens.



These products use UserVoice to manage customer feedback, voting and idea submission:


Feedback within its own domain

These products allow feedback and voting within sites under their own domain.

Microsoft Connect

SQL Server

Other products are listed under Microsoft Connect but do not seem active anymore.
