Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Universal Windows Platform Developer Feedback site. This site provides the Windows developer community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center (dashboard, reporting/analytics, submission process, etc.)
  • Microsoft Store

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

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

  • Windows consumer suggestions: Use the Windows Feedback Hub app built directly into Windows 10
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com: Sign in at the bottom of the page to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET: Use the Visual Studio UserVoice site

If you’re new to UserVoice, two things to keep in mind are (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and not the 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 (or if too many different ideas are included in one suggestion).

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

  1. Events upon outgoing/incoming call started and ended

    I would be extremely useful in a variety of app types to be notified upon call started and ended events, at least be able to check whether or not the device is being used for a phonecall.

        • meeting recurrence patterns

          calendar functionality does not allow for specifying end date for meeting or appointment. Bring back reccurrence from wm 6.5 where you could create complex meeting schedules

              • EmailComposeTaskを使ってメールにファイルを添付出来ない

                撮影した写真を友達に送るようなアプリを開発しようとした際に、メールにファイルを添付出来なくて実装を諦めました。

                EmailComposeTaskクラスを拡張して、メールに画像やファイルを添付可能なように変更して頂けませんでしょうか。

                • Please provide support for S/MIME email

                  S/MIME email is a mandatory requirement at my company and support for that on the Windows Phone platform is needed before we can consider it.

                    working on it  ·  Cliff Simpkins responded

                    Thank you for the suggestion and commentary; I’m pleased to mark this suggestion as ‘Started’.

                    As announced at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference and on the Windows Phone Blog, S/MIME support is coming to Windows Phone with the Windows Phone enterprise feature pack, with an announced delivery in the first half of 2014.

                    For more information, please refer to the Windows Phone team blog at:

                  • SmsComposeTask + MMS?

                    So, I had this great idea for an app... Got a good chunk of it coded, then found out that SmsComposeTask doesn't have the ability to attach images as an MMS.

                    Is this coming in a future release? Ideally, EmailComposeTask would get it as well....

                    Thanks

                    • Add RCS Messaging API support in UWP

                      RCS messaging allows networks to send text messages over a data connection. Now that Windows 10 has LTE support, RCS Messaging API should be introduced so we can take advantage of this messaging protocol in our UWP apps...
