Create Microsoft Feedback Notifications Policy with Intune

In this post, we will guide you in the creation of the Microsoft Feedback Notifications Policy. We are using Intune’s Settings Catalog to enforce this policy. Configuration Profiles of Intune will be used in implementing this task.

Microsoft Feedback Notifications Policy inhibits devices from displaying feedback prompts from Microsoft. Enabling this policy ensures that users won’t receive feedback notifications via the Feedback Hub app. Conversely, if you choose to disable or leave this policy unconfigured, users might encounter notifications through the Feedback Hub app, prompting them for feedback.

In the absence of Microsoft Feedback Notifications Policy or when it is disabled, users retain the ability to manage the frequency of feedback questions they receive.

This policy serves to block the presentation of feedback inquiries from Microsoft on devices. Once activated, users will no longer be prompted with feedback notifications through the Feedback Hub app.

In contrast, if the policy setting is disabled or remains unconfigured, users may encounter notifications via the Feedback Hub app, seeking their input and feedback.

Windows CSP Details DoNotShowFeedbackNotifications

We will see Windows CSP Details for this Policy setting DoNotShowFeedbackNotifications. In the absence of the enabled policy setting, users retain control over the frequency with which they receive feedback questions. This means that, without the policy in effect, users have the autonomy to manage and customize how often they are prompted for feedback through the Feedback Hub app.

The policy thus provides a mechanism for administrators to control the feedback interaction experience on devices according to organizational preferences.

Here in Experience, we have two options for Do Not Show Feedback Notifications which are as follows:

  • Feedback notifications are not disabled. The actual state of feedback notifications on the device will then depend on what GP has configured or what the user has configured locally.
  • Feedback notifications are disabled.

I have selected the second option, as shown below in the image.
