When thousands of folks band together to ask for something, Microsoft hears your voice. They know it’s important to keep the end user community satisfied so folks will keep evangelizing the database they know and love. That’s why in every release, Microsoft keeps bringing crowd-pleasing game-changers like SQL Server Ledger, blockchain technology in the database that keeps your transaction log around forever inside the database. I’m pretty sure that one was #11 in the list above. Maybe #12.
That’s why it’s so important that you create feedback requests to reflect what you’re interested, take time to read the requests from other folks, and upvote the ones you’d like to see implemented. Microsoft believes that your votes should matter, and that’s why they show the list of feedback items sorted by votes. Your voice matters: check out Microsoft Feedback today.
