Microsoft is now rolling out a feedback portal for the Microsoft Teams collaboration platform on Microsoft Office. According to the company, the new addition to Teams is currently available in preview for testers of the app. The portal is known as Feedback for Microsoft Teams.
First announced earlier this month, the new portal makes it easier for Microsoft Teams users to provide feedback to the company on changes. Microsoft has built the portal on its Dynamics 365 Customer Service platform.
Feedback for Microsoft Teams is a welcome addition as it provides the only way for users to reach out on Teams. That is become Microsoft controversially shut down its Office UserVoice forums earlier this year.
Microsoft said it was transitioning away from the third-party UserVoice service to first-party solutions. The Teams feedback portal is exactly what the company was talking about, providing direct access to users.
How it Works
With Feedback for Microsoft Teams users are able to submit their views on submitted ideas or forward their own ideas:
“The new Feedback portal will allow users to submit their own feedback, browse other publicly submitted ideas, track official Microsoft responses, see our top voted customer ideas, upvote the feedback they agree with, and comment on feedback that matches their own. Top known feedback items remain available in the new portal”.
Users can access Feedback for Microsoft Teams by heading to https://aka.ms/TeamsFeedback. At the moment, you will need to be a Teams Insider to use the tool.
Users can sort by feedback platforms across categories, including new feedback, old feedback, most votes, most/fewest comments, and sharing feedback.
Tip of the day: Do you get flooded by notifications in Windows 10 from apps and want to disable them completely or just the notification sound? Our tutorial shows you how to do this. As an alternative you can also configure Windows 10 Focus Assist (Do Not Disturb Mode) and set quiet hours.
