Microsoft explains how it manages Windows Insiders’ feedback for Windows 10 development


Microsoft launched a new program called Windows Insider alongside Windows last year. The program allows users to provide their feedback on Windows 10 development and Microsoft to see what the users and fans actually want on Windows 10. Today, the company explained how it manages Windows Insiders’ feedback on Windows 10 development in a new blog post.

The company revealed some interesting info on how the Windows Feedback program work on Windows 10. The company announced that they have received more than 3 million feedback from Windows Insiders. Alongside the regular feedback, the company has also received 2.5 million survey responses from users.

Microsoft has created a system that sends all the feedback and survey responses from Insiders to the Windows team at Microsoft. All of the members are able to view all the feedback from Insiders on a dashboard based on Visual Studio Online – here’s how it looks like:


Interestingly enough, the company has developed a system which adds all the feedback with most upvotes into work items aka to-do tasks. The Windows Feedback team has also developed a tool called “Gestalt” which generates a word cloud of all the topics of feedback which are being submitted using the Windows Feedback app.
