One of the concerns that many people have is that it is difficult to be heard by the (large) companies that supply their software (or hardware). And it is true that in many cases it isn’t possible. Many companies have different ways of hearing the customer, and some companies listen better than others. Of course this is sometimes misconceived by the customer when they reach out and there is no response directly. The company that I work for is always listening very heavily (through user forums) and we try to respond as good as possible but on the other hand we will never submit to something requested if it is not planned or coming soon. And we are certainly not the only ones working like that.
For larger companies (such as Microsoft) it is even more difficult to respond to everything or to review every request. They (and us) have to think about the bigger picture. The more a specific feature is requested, the more likely it will make it into the product.
Microsoft is starting a new initiative that will make it much easier for you to submit feedback on different solutions they have. I think that creating one single place to bring all the feedback together is good and it will make things easier both for you and for Microsoft.
So the time is now, use your power and start submitting feedback, or upvote others ideas that you would like to see also. The power is in your hands!
