Visual Studio IDE

Announcement: Last fall, we migrated this forum to Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. As the final step in the migration, this forum will be closed off completely on June 1st, 2019. We encourage you to visit Visual Studio Developer Community where you can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas, and engage with Visual Studio teams.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Visual Studio, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The Visual Studio 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".

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.

  10. SharePoint connected service

    Currently there's only support for office 365 connected service. But we can do much more with SharePoint apps (provider or auto hosted). I understand the fact that this service has a very specific deployment model which may be a technical challenge to integrate with connected services.

  11. Add support for Application Insights for Azure Worker Roles

    Add support for Application Insights for Azure Worker Roles.
    I can add AI to a WCF Role, but it's not supported for Worker Roles. It would be nice if this would be supported. That way I could send custom events from that worker role and observe these in the Azure Portal, i.e. "32 messages pulled from queue" or "16 jobs successful".

  16. Enable Ad Mediator to work with Javascript based UWP apps

    Seems Ad Mediator is not available for Javascript based UWP apps, I was under the impression JS is a first tier language too but seems not really :(

    Please add this.

    BTW, "older" Advertising SDK seems to work but only for desktop/tablet, not Phone (on 10240 that is, maybe does work on newer builds?)

  18. Allow all users to deploy when live sharing and notify all in session

    When live sharing it would be very ideal if any user within that session could deploy and the IDE simply notifies others within the session that x user has started to deploy x resource.

  20. Update Excel client to be compatible with newer query operators: IsEmpty and IsNotEmpty

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351737/update-excel-client-to-be-compatible-with-newer-qu.html
    If you attempt to open a VSO query in Excel that contains the "IsEmpty" or "IsNotEmpty" operators, Excel is unable to open it. Being able to open these queries in Excel would be awesome so that we can use these operators to perform ad-hoc analysis.

    original support case here: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/311975/opening-query-results-in-excel-error-expecting-com.html
