How do I submit feedback?
We need your voice! Nobody knows Minecraft: Education Edition like you and your students.
Feedback is something you would like to see changed, improved, or done differently based on your own opinion. This is subjective data that often helps the product team understand the needs and wants of our players and helps prioritize potential work for future updates. Use the "Wishlist and Feedback" forum to post feedback for our product team.
We want you to feel comfortable and excited to:
- understand the roadmap of Minecraft: Education Edition
- review existing issues and wishlist items
- upvote posts you are passionate about, add new wishlist ideas
Be sure you check our Known Issues page before posting as the team may already be aware of the issue you want to report. Upvote any ideas you like in the "Wishlist and Feedback" forum to give our product team visibility and see the popularity of this item to the community.
When the team sees an item voted up to the top of the forum, they discuss the post and its comments to decide if it’s right for Minecraft: Education Edition, draw up a basic plan, decide when they can devote time to work on the idea, and at some point start to work on the feature. It's important to not duplicate a feature or wishlist - in fact we'll most likely delete duplicate ideas.
