SBS Community Survey Update

Well, we are now into the second week of the SBS Community Survey. We have 375 responses so far. I am a little surprised to only see this many. There are almost this many people in the Montreal User Group alone that specialize in SBS. We get close to seven thousand posts in the SBS Newsgroup in a month. Can someone explain to me why the number of responses are so low?  Is the experience of having to take one more survey going to drive someone over the edge?  I know that there are numerous surveys out there and everyone's time is very important, but I think this one is very special. This survey is targeted directly to the SBS Community. I promise that I will take all the responses in the survey very seriously.

My plan is to keep this survey active for 4 weeks. After that, I plan to blog the final tabulated results on my blog and the The Official SBS Blog. It may take me a couple of weeks to do this given the amount of comments that have to be read. I have already started to summarize the responses. 

So, please spread the word about this survey. Please help get people to take the few minutes and share their thoughts with us. We are listening.

  • Kevin,

    I think it is because it is behind connect, which requires the passport and a load of other stuff...


  • I think you are right Nick. I wish I could get a lighter registration process then this on MS Connect, but I do not think it is possible for this version of MS Connect. I looked into using third party external survey mechanisms, but wanted to give the MS Connect site a shot since it is a tool that I use for running our betas and also may be the future place where allow external customers to submit official product feedback on SBS to the SBS Product Team.

    Thanks a lot,


  • Well, I take that back. Now that I have seen the new release of MS Connect, I will be able to do a completely anonymous survey in the future with MS Connect. Check out my last blog.
