As a Microsoft’s lead on the Windows Insider program, Dona Sarkar extended the information about a survey from Microsoft’s Windows Update team to seek feedback about the “Windows update experience” last week.

Indeed, this survey is not so related to what people are experiencing with updates themselves, but about the information Microsoft offers on its Windows 10 update history page.

Microsoft used this page to show users about a wide variety of bugs influencing Windows 10 version 1809, like buggy Intel drivers and iCloud problems.

Microsoft says in the new 26-question survey like this:

We’re looking to learn more about how you use Windows update history pages.

Microsoft wants to know the users’ identity – whether they are ordinary consumers or IT Pros.

The company wants to know whether respondents are consumers or IT Pros and how often they update Windows machines.

The company wants to gauge how well IT pros and ordinary consumers understand the soul-sapping Windows servicing model and terminology. This demands each group to understand the difference between its twice-a-year feature updates, quality updates, Patch Tuesday security updates, and so on.

Simultaneously, the company attempts to know how easy or hard for users and admins to find the update history pages and knowledge base (KB) posts, as well as whether the Windows 10 update history page can answer all their questions fully.

The “current status” section of the update history page can explain why some systems can’t receive the latest Windows 10 feature update. The company also want to know how helpful this section for users.

Another thing they want to know what is the most helpful and least helpful information in monthly security and non-security updates, as well as the cumulative updates with its list of improvements and fixes, issues, details on how to get the update, build number, and KB number.

Since the first public of this update history page in October, it has over one million page views. Microsoft will continue to pay attention to it and get more information from the survey.
