MSDN feature suggestions

Have an idea for how we can improve the overall experience on MSDN? If so, we’d love to hear it. You can submit a new idea or you can upvote and comment on existing ideas. Suggestions, comments, and votes will be reviewed directly by the engineering teams who are responsible for building MSDN.

This site is for feature suggestions and ideas, not for submitting bugs or to get support. To file a bug or get support, visit MSDN troubleshooting and support.

Thanks from all of us on the MSDN Engineering team!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Make MSDN site faster

      MSDN site veeeeery slow!!!

      - It makes dozen of redirects for user auth! (usual when open from google results)
      - load many external resources
      - may be have a heavy for rendering markup
      - may be slow loading from Russia (need to check)

      • give us a webpage for submitting suggestions, bugs, etc. fully categorized for sorting

        ►High-level / low-level sorted-out by selectable/new cross-categories:
        ►►For example, my suggestion I came to post (because I've tried to script-program such for my own webpages)---
        ►►►The Find dialog should be a double-search / or / single-search-with-secondary-backcolor (e.g. yellow primary + skyblue secondary) BECAUSE large pages I'm editing are/need-be organized documents SO when I'd add a new concept and put it in the right place, it's going to be near appropriate paragraphs that discuss the topic -and- come closest to already discussing the new concept: addon or more depth.

            • Make a time stamp appear for the messages sent and received on the Hotmail Skype side panel

              The new Hotmail Skype side panel is very useful, but causes problems when you don't know what time your friend sent you the message. It will be better with a time stamp for every new message sent or received.

              • Add a VB6 Programming support forum

                Add a forum for support of the VB6 programming language, just like the one you have for VBA programming.

                  • Dear Development teams who concerns it. Coulld you elaborate on a specific article ?

                    Dear Development team,

                    I am trying to call a protected service and while I am getting a response using SOAP UI,

                    generating code using the article above doesn't seem to work.
                    Could you help me (and possible others in the future) with insights on how to find out while the file isn't generated ?

                    Thanks!

                        • Allow filtering by programming language

                          If I want only C or only C++, I don't want c#.
                          There are probably others who might want c# and not c/c++.

                                  • Benefits to people who answer on TechNet forum

                                    This is related to the idea posted in this thread

                                    http://feedback.msdn.com/forums/257782-msdn-feature-suggestions/suggestions/6662281-microsoft-needs-to-pay-people-that-provide-help-to

                                    I personally believe that knowledge gets doubled when it is shared. So, I don't agree with this approach. Payment attached with TechNet would make it another Expert exchange. But, there are several people who supported this idea so I came up with an alternative.
                                    Instead of paying to the people who answer on TechNet, Microsoft can

                                    * Give them offer codes to get discount on Microsoft products.
                                    * Free passes to Microsoft conference.
                                    * Provide free/ coupons for third party sites like pluralsight.
                                    * Allow them to use evolution…
