Dev Platform

Welcome to the Windows Platform Developer (WPDev) Feedback site. This feedback forum provides the WPDev community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center Store (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Windows Stores (Windows and Windows Phone)

Your suggestions will be reviewed by the Windows platform developer team, providing feedback to help with planning ideas and to better understand how developers are using the development platform.

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

If you’re new to this whole UserVoice thing, we’d like to note two important things about this site: (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and does not represent an actual priority list for the product team; and (b) Suggestions made using this forum will be moderated if they do not actually represent a feature request.

How can we improve the Windows platform?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

            • marketplace app needs predictive typing

              marketplace app needs predictive typing, not just app matching as you type. this would speed up searches.

                • Renaming an Email Account by making the letters capital or lowercase, cause an error message

                  If you are trying to rename an Email Account, by making the letters capital or lowercase, you get an error message:

                  ‘You’re already using <account_name> for another account. Choose a different name for this account’.

                  Let’s say you need to rename ‘account_name’ to ‘Account_name’. User needs to then rename ‘account_name’ to ‘account_name_1’ (as an example) and then to the desired ‘Account_name’ (with a capita ‘A’).

                  • Scroll down when selecting text wich doesn't fit on screen.

                    You can only select text as big as screen. If larger it doesnt scroll down so you can only select part of the text.

                    • Allow more specific queries on FindAppointmentsAsync

                        • Fix silent and vibrate missed calls

                          Whenever the phone is on silent or vibrate and someone calls the phone will not ring but when the call is missed it will make a noise so it is not truly vibrate or silent. There should also be an option to customize the ringtones rather than having to switch silent off if you want vibrate..make easier switching

                            • A swipe to the right launches phone 'settings'.

                              It is more convenient to go with swiping gestures is more fun being with than the tap method. However, there should be more of swipe gestures than the tap methods. To set a difference a swipe to the right should launch 'settings' menu, as a swipe to the left launches the 'apps list'.

                              • Postpone payment and lower threshold

                                It would be ok for devs to be able to postpone a payment if the pending sum is too low, to the next month. For example, if I have a pending sum of 250$, I would like to be able to postpone until next month when the sum is higher.
                                Also the threshold of 200$ should be lowered for individuals.

                                  • Express submissn to allow emergency / urgent updates

                                    there should be a way to allow quick updates for current apps that suffer from a major problem and a fix has to be published quickly.

                                    for this "express submission" an extra fee might be charged

                                    • Install applications directly to cloud account

                                      The idea is to install partially or all the data of the application to cloud services and not to the local device.

                                      • Vertical Scrolling of contents towards the end produce stretch effect on the page that doesn't often look good

                                        It does not look professional when scrolling upward at the end of any page or downward at the top the content of the page regardless of material or application will be stretched down

                                        • Bing Music search/recognition

                                          Bing music search should add the ability to learn about the artist and to get the song lyrics for the song it "hears". Recognition is very accurate, it should be easy to add two buttons for this.
