Microsoft has announced that a preview of the feedback portal for Microsoft Teams is now available. Based on the company's own Dynamics 365 Customer Service tool, the new portal is one of the ways Microsoft hopes to collect feedback from Teams users after it was originally announced back on October 8.
According to Microsoft, this new portal will allow users to submit their own feedback and view other submitted ideas. The new portal also makes it easy to track Microsoft responses, see top-voted ideas, and upvote the feedback from other users. You'll even be able to easily track your favorite ideas through the ‘star’ icon and receive notifications when your own ideas are responded to by Microsoft.
You can now get to the feedback portal by going to https://aka.ms/TeamsFeedback. We checked it out, and it seems like a very clean experience, letting you filter feedback for Teams and Edge by platforms and various categories. You also sort by most votes, newest feedback, oldest feedback, most comments, or least comments. Evens sharing an existing feedback entry is easy, with a share button at the top of the screen.
This new feedback portal comes after outrage in March when Microsoft quietly shut down its various Office 365 UserVoice forums, which allowed users to suggest ideas, comment, and vote for them. Let us know what you think of this new portal by dropping us a comment below.
