Which is the replacement of UWP User Voice forum

Hello

in thread UWP app is not able to create appointments in an Office 365 calendar at https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsapps/en-US/710e8168-1cc3-4ee9-bf22-45179b0767b1/uwp-app-is-not-able-to-create-appointments-in-an-office-365-calendar?forum=wpdevelop was said to me to post a feature request to https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-universal-windows-platform.
It seems that the uservoice forum is closed. Which is the replacement?

Thanks in advance, Daniele

The official spot for Windows Feedback, including developer items, is the Feedback Hub app. Yes, it does get looked at. Items posted elsewhere (including these forums) often get migrated into the Feedback Hub for you, but you'll lose tracking by not doing so yourself.

For your specific Office 365 Calendar suggestion, you'll probably be best off on the O365 Developer UserVoice. That request is something that would be implemented by Outlook not by Windows. You should be able to access the Calendar with the current code via the Outlook Calendar REST API -- that's really a question for the Outlook specialists over in the Outlook developer communities.

Hi Rob,

my request is related to UWP API, not to Outlook Calendar REST API.

The point is to use UWP calendar APIs (working as expected with Exchange calendar and Google calendar) does not work with an Office 365 calendar. UWP should make and abstraction over the backing calendar provider, but it comes out that some APIs (for example SaveAppointmentAsync, but not only) does not behaves correctly with Office 365 Calendar.

Can you please confirm again that to suggest improvement to UWP APIs the only choice is the Feedback Hub app?

Thanks in advance, Daniele

Yes. The official spot for Windows Feedback, including developer items, is the Feedback Hub app.

From your previous post the UWP calendar API is working just fine, except that the O365 calendar store tells it not to allow updates from other apps. You can request a change to the Windows API, but the behavior you're asking for is much more likely to be changed on the O365 side so a request directly to that product will be more efficient.

If needing to update the calendar is a requirement for your app then you can do so today via the O365 REST API without waiting for a change from Microsoft's side. If it's not essential then you can make a feature request and wait.

Thanks for your answer about the Feedback Hub app.

About UWP calendar API: it is not working fine from my point of view. Is not clear why it not to allow updates from other UWP apps, but the same approach with iOS is working fine.

About O365 REST API: this is not a way, as we should take care of authentication and synchronization (imagine the case when appointments are created when there is no network), while WIN 10 and UWP offers (with Exchange) working APIs to achieve this.

Both the last 2 points are outside the scope of the original question so, in case, I will in create a new thread.

Thanks again for your support.

Fixed your link for you. It was missing the "visualstudio.com" part and went to a spam site.

That said, the Visual Studio Developer Community is for Visual Studio feedback, not for Windows Feedback.
