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?

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

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

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

  1. 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

  3. View application storage usage

    Android gives you the capability to zee how much storage a particular app uses, we could really do with this

    After an exercise that caused me to uninstall almost everything it was a little rss reader that was consuming that missing 1gb of space :0(

  4. Data Connection Monitoring

    The ability for applications to follow the data connection of the device (especially Edge/3G etc.) if they run as background tasks with live tiles, as most carriers provide limited amount of connection

  5. option to show internaional reviews in marketplace

    why shouldn't I as user be able to see reviews made by people from other countries??
    Here in Denmark there aren't that many wp users yet, so a lot of apps will show up in the marketplace without any reviews, -even though you can see in apptracker that there exist some reviews...

  7. 個体識別番号、またはSIMカードIDをAPIで取得&個体認証に使えるようにしてほしい

    アプリの使用を社内や閉じたネットワークでの使用で制限したい場合、現在表にアプリを表示しないことでしか回避できないが、これは非常に問題があり、セキュリティ低下の要因なので内部向けのマーケットプレイス対応だけではなく、端末そのものを制御できるようにしてほしい

  8. ProtectedData クラス(Triple DES) の共有鍵を ProductID ではないユニークなものにして欲しい。

    ProtectedData クラスを使用することで、任意のバイト列を Triple DES で暗号化・復号化する事が出来ますが、暗号化時の共有鍵が「アプリケーションの Product ID」が暗黙的に使用されています。( Windows7 等ではログインユーザのパスワードが使用される)
    これは大きな問題で、Microsoft.Smartdevice.Connectivity クラスを使用することで、デバイスにインストールされているソフトの ProductID や保存されているデータなどが取得することが出来ますので、開発環境がインストールされている PC であれば簡単に暗号化を解読することが出来てしまいます。

    これでは ProtectedData クラスの暗号化を使用することはできません。

    このようなことがないように ProtectedData クラスの共有鍵は、アプリケーションインストール時に OS が決めたユニークな ID にしてもらえないでしょうか。

  9. Option to see status bar at all times

    Instead of having to tap the screen you should have the choice
    of locking it at the top of the screen.

  10. Add Tuenti to people Hub

    Tuenti is a social network as Facebook (in Spanish or English or Catalan), it would be very useful for spanish people or south americans or people who have signed up on it, to have it (integrated) into the people hub. I have a lot spanish friends who have hesitated to buy a Windows phone (and finally didn't buy it) because their favourite social network wasn't neither on the marketplace, neither on the people hub

  11. DPWS Printing/Scanning

    The built-in support for some DPWS devices would be nice, especially printing to WSD printers (or capturing images from WSD scanners) would be a significant feature. Implementing such protocol is not impossible and printing from applications would be welcome not only by developers but by end users as well - once available in Office applications etc.

  13. Link and text Highlight improvment

    extended ability to highlight text or links within apps such as Facebook and Twitter for copy paste, individual text/word highlight of a text bubble with the WP7 txts.
    improoved text edit cursor positioning, when highlighting text close to the top of the screeb or too far down, the scrolling plays up anf makes it awkward to get it right.

  15. [A-Z]-Button above Groups in Contacts Hub

    When you have more than 5 Groups you need to scroll down in case you want to find a single Contact.
    The [A-Z]-Button should open the Letter-grid to jump to the desired point in the list.

  18. SharePictureTask or SharePhotoTask

    It would be really nice to have a "Share" task that I could pass a stream to, in order to share an image. This task could bring up the same interface when I share an photo from my pictures library. It would make it simple to share photos to facebook and twitter if the user already has it setup. It would also make it possible to finally share photos via sms and email programmatically.

  19. Custom Transitions

    Page & content transitions are currently incomplete and a black box implementation not amenable to extension or customisation.

    Please document how transitions work and expose the necessary API for us to create our own drop in replacements for the limited set of transitions supplied by the existing APIs.

    For example, on WP if I want to use a custom transition I can fake the transition by using animations at the exit and entry to a page but in order for this to work I need to remove the existing stack of transitions from the frame because navigation will reuse the…

  20. Scrolling improvement

    I believe scrolling should be improved. As sometimes when users are viewing a long document, they sometimes might want to skip to the middle/lower section. But scrolling seems to take a little long..

    Thus, this idea is actually for the developers to make scrolling faster after each subsequent scroll, like every 5 scrolls the scrolling speed will increase..
