Insiders will now get direct feedback when their reports resulted in a fix

There are literally millions of Windows 10 Insiders, but given the number of bugs which slip through it is sometimes not very clear if they are actually participating actively in the development of the operating system, and if in particular, they are giving feedback to Microsoft of issues they noticed.

Microsoft is today taking another step in helping to motivate Insiders to report issues more vigorously by letting them know when a change they report has made a difference.

Microsoft will be doing this in 3 ways.

Popup screen reading "You gave feedback on Mail or Calendar live tiles being out of date. Was this problem fixed?"

1 – Microsoft will now notify specific insiders directly if an issue they reported in the feedback hub has been acted upon and ask if the bug fix has resolved the issue.

The pop-up above will be delivered initially to the user who made the report, and then later to users who upvoted the report.

Email with "You gave feedback on Mail or Calendar live tiles being out of date. Was this problem fixed?"

2 – Microsoft will be requesting the same feedback via email if a user did not respond to the pop-up.

An email may say  “You gave feedback on Mail or Calendar live tiles being out of date. Was this problem fixed?”

Feedback hub message "Changes Made: We've made changes base on this feedback. Try them ou in app version 1.1708.2431.0 or higher. Check the app store for updates. If you think there's more we can look into, please leave a comment! Read the Microsoft response for more info."

3 – Lastly in the feedback hub itself there will now be banners notifying users about important events regarding feedback they submitted.

Ultimately a more engaged group of Insiders should result in a better operating system for us all.
