A couple of weeks ago, we reported on Microsoft’s new Feedback community hub preview for Microsoft Teams. This week, the company is announcing the concept is expanding to cover all Microsoft 365 apps and also Microsoft Edge.
According to Microsoft, Feedback will also eventually come to Windows and other services. Back in March, the company announced it was planning to close its UserVoice forums, which was finalized in May. Microsoft used the third-party platform for all its feedback but promised a move to a first-party solution.
Since the closure of the UserVoice forums, Microsoft 365 users have been without a way to provide feedback on services. The new Feedback community is the answer, and fulfils Microsoft’s promise of an in-house feedback system.
As with the Teams preview, the wider Microsoft 365 Feedback Community is built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Service software. Users can sort by feedback platforms across categories, including new feedback, old feedback, most votes, most/fewest comments, and sharing feedback.
“The new Feedback portal will allow users to submit their own feedback, browse other publicly submitted ideas, track official Microsoft responses, see our top voted customer ideas, upvote the feedback they agree with, and comment on feedback that matches their own. Top known feedback items remain available in the new portal”.
Microsoft 365 Feedback is available on mobile and desktop, and available across platforms. Furthermore, the hub will be integrated directly into applications.
There are currently 33 feedback forums covering M365 services such as To-Do, OneNote, Teams, SharePoint, PowerPoint, Word, and more.
