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 vote and comment on it.

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

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

    • Add Sinhalese (සිංහල) Language to MSDN Library

      There are lot of Sinhalese software developers in the world and there will be as well. We can grab more and more developers and users who uses Sinhalese Language to develop applications if MSDN contains සිංහල in Language List. There are lot of people are waiting to help to improve MSDN in සිංහල.

      • Consolidate documents into more information per web page. Provide PDFs of reference materials.

        Don't annoy users by presenting reference material in little tiny dollops of information spread across a gazillion web pages. Provide PDF or ebooks with full content of reference material.

        • Clarify Random.Next(int,int)

          The description for maxValue in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2dx6wyd4%28v=vs.110%29.aspx has caused a bit of contention for the case where min==max (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/27370548/why-does-the-net-implementation-of-random-nextint-int-require-maxvalue-mi). I would suggest changing "The exclusive upper bound of the random number returned." to something like "The upper bound of the random number returned. If maxValue is greater than minValue, this bound is exclusive. If they are equal, the bound is inclusive (and you'll always get a return value of minValue)." This will make that doco page internally consistent.

          • There needs to be a standalone CRC utility on all Windows Devices.

            There needs to be a standalone CRC utility on all Windows Devices.
            Some employees of the Federal Government mostly Military, have formed their own companies or clans, possibly their own informal agency.

            Not like you will believe the truth when you read it.

            My point being.. what you know of the selected BSD computer users and an elite secret society hidden behind us....
            Well it has become a nightmare. In fact one elite programmer issued a warning of what is against....all of us.

            An almost undetectable "applette" installed on a computer is run by a remote server.
            It blocks routing…

                  • Fix the unusable WYSIWYG editor

                    I have tried to write a regular post with a code snippet inserted and all of my actions have messed up the whole text:
                    - Pasted a code snippet copied from Visual Studio. The editor added a random line break in the center of the copied line which I could not delete no matter how I tried.
                    - Added some more lines one by one, selected it and clicked insert code block. The popup removed ALL line breaks, so I had to reinsert them manually.
                    - When I could finally insert the second time reformatted code snippet, the editor messed…

                    • Include browser based code editor with intellisense in the library.

                      Microsoft already has a browser based code editor and it has been integrated with multiple products like Azure (Monaco). It would be awesome to have it in the library. We would directly check the functions and properties of a class without moving through different MSDN pages.

                                • Subscriber Downloads - Ability to create customisable "Download Sets"

                                  A "download set" would be a named collection of MSDN Downloads which meet a common purpose.

                                  e.g. "SharePoint Dev Box" (consisting of SharePoint, SQL Server, Visual Studio).

                                  This would allow a page so that collaborative users can download specific versions (e.g. "SQL 2008 R2 SP1 CU4") of software that are required for specific builds.

                                  Ideally you would be able to add comments or notes, as well as tags.

                                  Bonus points if I can make my "download sets" public so I can share them with members of the community (and people can then rate or bookmark their "favourite" sets from MVPs…

                                  • Microsoft needs to pay people that provide help to its customers on its Tech Forum

                                    Awarding points to individuals that provide help to Microsoft customers on its Tech Forums disrespects their knowledge and abilities. They are performing a service for Microsoft and should be paid. If these people did not exist, Microsoft would find it necessary to increase its support staff to respond to its customers. All Microsoft support staff certainly gets paid. So, why not pay your "virtual" support staff on your Tech Forums.
