Tools to get feedback from your customers
As a developer, you can use many of the same tools with your customers and apps that we use with Windows Insiders to develop Windows. Get ready to create new testing strategies, gather deeper feedback, resolve issues faster, and keep all your users informed and engaged.
Flighting and feature experiments
We're always testing different versions of features with our user, and with our tools, you can do similar testing to improve your users' experience.
Test different package flights. Package flights let you give different sets of your users different packages, without disrupting the experience of your other customers. When you set up package flights, you can make known user groups to choose who gets specific packages.
Perform A/B testing. You can use the Windows Dev Center dashboard to define and test remote variables inside your UWP apps, then monitor how they drive your users' behavior. Variables can be used to configure different types of app experiences, like in-app purchases, sign-up flowa, captions, and ad placements.
Collect and manage feedback
You can also use the same Feedback Hub app we use with your own applications for a direct channel to your users and Insiders submitting feedback.
Integrate Feedback Hub. Feedback Hub can be embedded and launched from directly inside your app using an API from the Microsoft Store Services SDK.
Track feedback. All the feedback submitted for your app through the Feedback Hub is collected into a feedback report in the Windows Dev Center dashboard, so you can easily see the problems, suggestions, and upvotes that your customers have submitted.
Respond to feedback. You can respond to specific feedback in the Feedback Hub by commenting or by setting a status, like investigating or completed. You can also respond directly to a user who's left feedback through email.
Send notifications to customers
You can also send notifications to your app's customers through the Windows Dev Center's data-driven customer engagement platform. Notifications are a great way to encourage your customers to rate your app, give feedback, buy an add-on, try a new feature, download another app, or take further action.
