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. Appointment chooser

    As an alternative to giving write-access to calendar (which can be hard to get a go on for security reasons), let us at least open an appointment directly in the calendar app.

    Would make it possible to make calendar viewers that can behave as a real calendar alternative. Especially if we also can have a "delete appointment"-chooser (user will need to confirm deletion).

  7. Allow CookieContainer to be Serialized/Deserialized

    Currently, serialization and deserialization of the CookieContainer doesn't work. The documentation says to use the CookieContainer if one needs to save off HttpOnly cookies. It seems that saving the CookieContainer isn't possible.

    "If the server sends HTTPOnly cookies, you should create a System.Net.CookieContainer on the request to hold the cookies, although you will not see or be able to access the cookies that are stored in the container."

  8. There is a bug in multicast .beginJoinGroup that blocks calling thread.

    There is a bug in multicast .beginJoinGroup. After tombstoning if this method is called in onActivated or any "load" then thread is blocked. Solution is to call this method in an override of onNavigated method. Plz fix this.

  10. Smart Dialing from Phone App

    Could a Smart dial please be finally applied to the phone app? It's quite frustrating to have to go into people, click of search and have to find contact, then dial. Easy when you dont have lots of contacts, but when you are managing Thousands of contacts, it makes life easy. Please implement. Thanks.

  14. AddressChooserTask get finer detail (i.e. postcode)

    The event arguments from the AddressChooserTask only returns the contact address as a string. So if we need a specific part of the address we'd have to do some fairly tricky parsing. It would be nice if we had finer access so we could specifically get, say, the postcode.

    When entering address details for a contact the address details are split into different fields anyway so one would expect to be able to access them individually from the result an AddressChooserTask as well.

  16. When Bing search results suggests an app, the app should show relavent search results

    For example, I search for "Star Wars"
    The IMDb app is suggested.
    I click on IMDb and it opens.
    Now I must search again for "Star Wars" in IMDb.
    IMDb should open to the "Star Wars" page directly from bing's search results.

  17. Allow communication between applications

    Developers need a way of sharing data between applications.

    1.- Check if an ApplicationID is installed/purchased
    2.- Share files between applications in something that could be called "SharedStorageFiles" instead of "IsolatedStorageFiles".
    3.- Share variables between applications in something that could be called "Desharrapamientos" instead of "IsolatedStorageSettings".
    4.- Check for pinned ActiveTiles (not modify them, just check if an ApplicationID primary or secondary tile is already pinned)

  20. Add a SelectBox control for developers

    There is no exposed SelectBox control as far as it appears, even though it is used in Microsoft's apps like Settings. Can you make it available to developers?
