There have been a number of questions about how to submit defect reports and suggestions for SQL Server. The SQL Server team uses the http://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer site to gather customer input. Defects reported on the connect site go directly into our internal issue tracking system so we don't lose any information that customers provide. The SQL Server team uses defect reports and suggestions from customers to prioritize future work. Customer issues are given extra weight in our decision making, so filing defect reports and suggestions on the connect site helps us solve the problems you care about sooner.
The procedure for filing an issue on the site is as follows:
1) Navigate to http://connect.microsoft.com/sqlserver 2) Login using your passport account 3) Type in some relevant keywords in the "Search Feedback" box 4) Click the Search button 5) Examine the list of reported issues for the keywords 6) If there is no issue reported yet, click the Submit Feedback button 7) Click the link for "SQL Server Bug Form" or "SQL Server Suggestion Form", whichever seems more appropriate 8) Fill out the form and click "Submit" to enter the data into our issue tracking system
