SQL Server Feedback In A Post-Connect World

Bugs

Koen Verbeeck touts the new SQL Server feedback site:

After years of having to deal with Connect – the feedback platform of Microsoft – it is announced a successor has been found: feedback.azure.com. It’s not all about Azure, the link goes to the relevant portion of SQL Server. I’m glad for this change, as Connect could sometimes be a little … quirky. Especially the search function didn’t work properly. The new feedback site is based on UserVoice and it’s really easy to submit feedback. People submitting ideas for Power BI will be very familiar with the format. There are a couple of drawbacks:

  • You cannot specify many details (none to be exact, or you have to list them in the descriptions). OS version, SQL Server version, bitness, et cetera. On the other hand it makes the process of entering feedback a lot faster.

  • You cannot mark a feedback item as private so that only Microsoft can see it. This means it’s not exactly the place to dump your production data to show how a bug is bugging you (haha).

I’m not sure how much of an improvement this is, but at least it does serve the Power BI team well.
