Universal Windows 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 dev 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".

  1. Allow alarms to break through Quiet Hours

    Hello.
    My alarm app which uses alarm-scenario toasts cannot break through Quiet Hours.

    I received plenty, I mean really plenty feedback from users desperately wanting alarms to break through Quiet Hours.

      In the future, we’ll look at enabling this! It’s definitely important that third party apps can do the same as first party apps (like how the first party alarm app can break through quiet hours).

      Thanks for all the votes! If you also need this feature for your app, let us know by voting!

    • Add Overlay UI like Android

      The new Notification access is awesome but is it possible to add Overlay UI and " Services " ( you will find it under accessibility settings in Android) to RS2. It will make UWP more powerful like win32 and also let dev make some powerful and useful apps like " Universal Copy " and 'Native Clipboard" . I am adding some screenshots too. You can install those Android apps yourself. Screenshot_2016-06-12-11-02-35.png http://i.imgur.com/bpHQXue.png

      • Support for Caching of Push Notifications on the Cache server, similar to Windows 8

        It would help developers a lot if it was possible to let the Push Notification Server cache the last push notification. Similar to the support of X-WNS-CachePolicy header for Windows 8 push notifications. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh465435.aspx#pncodes_x_wns_cache

              • Max length of toast tag not enough for a simple GUID in Windows 10

                Toasts in UWP can be tagged with ids of elements that are mainly in databases. However, I get an error when I give a tag from a string based on GUID telling that the string is too long.
                I think that the tag field should be capable of holding a simple Guid to be able to interact with toast notifications in action center.

                Thanks.

                  Thanks for the suggestion! You’re totally right that the length limitations on Tag/Group can be frustratingly short. That’s something we’re looking at increasing in the future. In the meantime, you’ll just have to hash your GUID.

                    • Allow us to upload a CSR instead of requiring Root CA signed cert

                      Would work just like Apple does, there is no reason why we need to purchase a certificate every year from a root CA and worry about certificate chain issues. We could just upload a CSR and Microsoft provide a signed certificate via their own CA.

                            • Fix the push notification issue for the love of god!!!!!

                              on Windows phone 8.1 push notifications are late. This is unexceptable! I as customer I had come to a developer forum to contact you. There are too many people having the same problem.

                              Whatsapp, facebook, instagram, viber etc message notification are late up to 1 hour. Whatsapp messages come after 30 min...

                              I have tried every single solution nothing worked.

                              I don't get viber or whatsapp call notification. How can you avoid such a big problem?

                              I use lumia 930 with EE network in the UK.

                              FIX THIS ASAP. I'm sorry if I'm mean but you don't deserve any sympathy.
