We have just pushed our latest version of the Microsoft Tech Community and we have made some changes to areas of the community you will visit often. 


'My Home' is gone

Ever since our beta launch, and then subsequent UI redesign the 'My Home' page has sat in the top right of the community under the heart icon next to the search bar and the notification bell. The purpose of this page was to give you a one stop shop to see the communities that you have joined.


We listened to user feedback that it was too buried, and indeed many users had never even visited that page until we asked them about it. In response have moved all the communities you have joined into the Communities tab, under the filter called 'My Communities'



We focused some love on the Communities page with this release, based on some user feedback but also designed to make it the one stop shop for finding communities you may be interested in.


  • We have made it easier to see communities with long names by wrapping the name and made the title smaller to accommodate the multi-line wrap
  • We had a request from you to implement community descriptions in the communities tab, which has been done
  • You can now select 'My Communities'
  • Some other UI changes to align with our community style



You reported it, we fixed it...

A few you had spotted we were getting errors on some threads where users had requested, we delete their account under GDPR, great catch and we have fixed that this sprint.


Tell us what you think!

Your input helps me shape our backlog for community improvements, if you have comments or things you would like to see please submit your idea in our Ideas board and the most popular ideas will always be considered for future development.
