Help Make Connect Work Better

May 4, 2009 at 9:31 am (Misc) (, )


I’ve posted several times about how useful I find Microsoft Connect. I’ve seen issues introduced there get resolved through hot fixes and service packs. I sincerely believe it’s a very important tool in your arsenal to get the kind of service you need from Microsoft. Here’s a post on Connect that’s trying to make Connect itself easier to use. I’d strongly recommend you swing by and vote positively for this.

    Hey Grant, I made my first CONNECT suggestion yesterday at https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=440375. Take a look and let me know what you think.

    Thanks,

    Grant: I looked at the onnect suggestion by Adam and I completely agree. So I voted for it. I think. So I validated it too just to be safe. :-)

    I wrote an article about Connect a few months ago. They resolve issues at a snails pace and almost impossible to find correct place to submit a bug.

    Even if it is the correct location they either don’t fix most of them or just leave them open for a year or better. Besides that some things like C# GetSubDirectories function on an existing directory returns the inccrrectly however they say it is by design… arg get it right already;

    They’ve revamped it recently. I’m not sure if it’s better or not, but it is different. To a degree, I think it’s luck of the draw if they fix things or not. I went through a streak of seeing the ones I was most interested in fixed, quick & seamless. I recently had one that was posted almost a year ago closed without further comment. It’s not perfect, but I still do, on the whole, find it useful.
