Windows Insiders, how should Microsoft tell you when your bug has been fixed? Dona Sarkar wants to know

About an hour after revealing there would be no new Windows 10 PC Insider builds this week, Dona Sarkar followed up to share some information about the future of the Windows Insider Program. It was revealed that Microsoft is looking to find out how Insiders want to be notified when their reported bugs have been fixed.

According to Dona, a few of the notification options on the table include emails, a notification in the feedback hub, and “SUIFS.” We were not certain what was meant by a “SUIF” so we followed up to ask the chief ninja cat what she meant. On Twitter, Dona joked about the need for a Windows Insider glossary and told our Kip Kniskern that a SUIF is a pop-up which asks for feedback on your experience or features.

Regardless of which method is chosen by Microsoft, notifying Windows Insiders individually about bug fixes would be a welcome change. It would make things much more personal compared to the current upvote and comment system, encourage more bug reporting altogether, and aid Microsoft in making Windows 10 great again.

The individual notifications bug fixes appear to be a part of a wider push by Microsoft to connect with the Windows Insider community. Dona has previously tweeted about the iteration of new ideas, and forums for Windows Insider communications. She previously revealed that the company is looking to better use Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Mixer, LinkedIn, and Blog Posts to make connections with Windows Insiders.
