16 Feb 2012 HOW TO: Submit An Item To Microsoft Connect
Wanted to do a quick follow-up from my post earlier this week. If you recall, I mentioned how the Books Online entry for managing the suspect_pages table inside of the MSDB database was slightly misleading. I decided to use this as an opportunity to show you how easy it is to submit feedback to Microsoft about their products by using Microsoft Connect.
I’m not sure how well know Connect is for most people. I know that I am often asked the question “how do you provide feedback to Microsoft” and I usually answer “I email them”. That doesn’t work for most people who don’t have access to my email contacts (and this, despite my using Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Instagram) so that’s when I say to use Connect and most folks stare at me and wonder why they need Kinect and Xbox in order to submit a simple request.
You don’t. Yes, I know the names are the same. But they are spelled differently. One of them makes you more hip than the other. I’ll let you decide which is which.
Anyway, here is the video, in all it’s glory. Watch me type into a text box.
Yep, it was that easy. I would urge you to use Connect early and often, especially with SQL 2012 coming any day now.
