M365 News – SharePoint Online – The SharePoint feedback button is being retired

Microsoft 365 - SharePoint Online - SharePoint page - "Product Feedback" button at the bottom of page

Hi All,

Today, I’ll share one news related to SharePoint Online published on 13 Feb 2019 in Message center.

Message : The SharePoint feedback button is being retired​

Reason behind sharing this message: Currently I am working on SharePoint online Intranet project. Few days back our customer asked to hide the “Product Feedback” button appearing at the bottom of all the pages including home pages and modern pages. As shown in below figure:

Reason behind to ask this button to hide is it was confusing. User were understanding that this button is for sending feedback for there company service desk and not to Microsoft.

And now this button is getting retired 🙂

PowerShell cmdlet for hiding and showing the “Product Feedback” button as

//To hide the “Feedback” button – Users no more send the feedback to Microsoft. 
Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false
//To show the “Feedback” button – Feedback button will be visible at the bottom of the page.
Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$true 
Note: We need to connect our tenant first using following PowerShell command as 
PS C:\> Connect-SPOService
cmdlet Connect-SPOService at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:
Url: https://knowledgejunction-admin.sharepoint.com

Once we entered the credentials, we could connect with the Microsoft 365 and enable/disable the user voice.

New future change: On 13 Feb 2019, Microsoft published the message in Message center related to Feedback button.

From 18 Feb 2019, the product feedback button will be removed from the SharePoint footer from all the SharePoint home and modern pages.

This dosent means UserVoice is going away. The UserVoice forums will still be available for providing product feedback and suggestions. There will be a new, clearer way to provide feedback from within the product in the coming months.

Thanks for reading 🙂
