Got feedback? Don't post it here! :grinning_face:

 

But now we're happy to be able to give you a more satisfying place to share it: yammer.uservoice.com


If you're curious about why we hadn't been using UserVoice already and/or why we're turning it on now, Cindy Alvarez wrote a blog post about it

With every corner of Microsoft now telling me to add ideas to uservoice - why are there actual limits to suggestions?

Ideally I should be able to vote up every idea I think should be supported and not limited to 10 votes.

But then to actually to limit my posts does not make sense:

----

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".

---

This naturally pushed users to set up other accounts or just not bother.

Why not reward users who acutally suggest useful features and not keep the majority at arms lenght?

It sure would be nice if I could make a planner task out of a yammer post rather then making it unread and having to deal with it later.
