Why do I need to enter my email when I submit feedback?
I'm already logged into the site. Why not use my user credentials?
And why is it my responsibility to browse other feedback that's been posted? I don't like the left-hand sidebar for similar feedback.
I know this is a plug-and-play third party app, but still - it feels like the feedback won't get the respect I think it deserves.
To our knowledge it’s not possible to use our own login system for supplying feedback via UserVoice. The idea of perusing what’s been posted is to avoid duplicate feedback; but we appreciate that not everyone wants to spend time on this, so we try to merge similar ideas when we can.
Point absolutely taken :) It’s definitely a frustration if you’ve never used another UserVoice-enabled site.
I disagree with "A W' on one point: I'm glad to see the dynamically-built list of potential matches for feedback that others have left from keywords 'mI enter into my own potential suggestion, for in my case it clearly prevented me from generating a duplicate entry in your feedback database, which is all the worse for usefully setting (and reading) demand for this or that feature via voting statistics.
But I do wish that you could find a way to automate the creation of user profiles in UserVoice (I think it's a great add-on)--which is to say the use of the same e-mail address and the same password---and automatically log users into the system when and if the user visits the UserVoice-managed feedback system. "A W" is correct with respect to his primary concern, I also found it somewhat irritating that I had to create one more profile for a web site when I'm already logged into yours. I n my case, I was already in the throws of searching and commenting on an already present suggestion when I discovered that I had to stop and first register myself with the feedback system, confirm that registration, and then find my way back to the entry I was replying against before that interruption. UserVoice includes a feature called "Single Sign-On" with their (unfortunately, perhaps, given what must be a fairly tight budget for a small start-up) two highest-end plans, premium and ultimate. So if (or when) you can afford it, check into that.
