Invitation to provide feedback through UserVoice

I am not sure if everyone is aware of UserVoice but I am here to tell you about it.  UserVoice is where you can provide feedback to the Microsoft Product Groups who are now monitoring these forums.  Do you have idea or suggestion on how to make Windows Server 2016 better or a feature you would like to see added?  Well, speak up and let us know what you are thinking.

There are multiple forums to provide this feedback.  Below is the listing of the various features.  But first, how to start User Voice and how the Windows Server Product Team will respond.

How to start User Voice?

  • Create user account. (Enter contact in case we need to ask more questions. )
  • Add your voice! (I wish… )


  • Cast a vote to the idea you like. You get 10 votes total!

What ideas will be most considered by the Windows Server Product Team?

  • Idea with high votes will be considered heavily.
  • Clear and actionable ideas will be reviewed quickly.

Caution: Do not create a single idea with multiple ideas contained in it. We need to understand the priorities. Please make sure they are separate ideas so we can see clear votes on each distinct idea. In this case, we will likely to close the idea.

Once the Windows Server Product Team has reviewed the idea, the idea status will change.

Please note that “Under Review” status means that the Windows Server Product Team is reviewing. It does not guarantee any deliverable.

We will provide notification on all declined ideas.

Each vote get released when the idea is closed (either decline or completed).

Now, as far as the various forums, here you go and let us know what you would like to see:

Clustering Diagnostics General Feedback  Nano Server  Networking Remote Management Tools  Security and Assurance  Storage  Virtualization

Also, if you are looking to provide feedback on Automation (PowerShell and Scripting), please provide your suggestions using our PowerShell Connect Site.
Remember, these sites are for feature suggestions and ideas only.

To see our work in progress, please go ahead and install the Windows Server Technical Preview. More information on what’s new in the Technical Preview can be found here. You can join the conversation about the Technical Preview and swap advice with others at Technical Preview Forums.
