Feedback requests to Microsoft

If you didn’t know Microsoft has a number of channels to provide feedback. Most historically user connect (, it integrated with their internal bug tracking systems and meant that items flowed from the users to engineering and back. Well supposed to.


The SQL product group still use connect with a few teams also using Trello and or Slack Slack -

Visual studio is moving to from connect

and also has for ideas

VSTS has a great support and also uses MSDN, and takes requests on Uservoice

PowerBI has forums and uses user voice


If you feel that something is important raise it, if you have a repro even better, if you have a business case why they should invest even better. You can’t complain things aren’t improved unless you tell them.


At we know how valuable feedback is, how do you respond to your customers without it. This is the list of items we’ve raised or we think are important, that are either bugs or feature requests
