At Unity, we center our product development on user feedback and have created a variety of mechanisms for users to give us their feedback.
We want to outline three different types of feedback that have discrete channels for each:
In this post, we will outline those three offerings and identify when and why you would use each channel:
Want to participate in research studies and give solicited feedback? Unity Pulse is the place for you.
Unity Pulse is our online feedback community where you have the opportunity to connect directly with Unity product teams, gain access to product concepts before they reach the public, or give feedback on Beta products to help us make the best products and Unity experiences for you.
This is a community you can join to give solicited feedback. What does that mean? We will be asking you specific questions on specific topics and asking for feedback. Unity Pulse allows you to provide feedback through research activities that relate to your background and experience including products you use and projects you work on. This will not be a place where you can leave comments on unsolicited topics and you cannot start new conversations with the community on your own.
The activities you will be invited to participate in will directly drive new product innovations and help our product teams better understand our users.
The Unity Forums are Unity’s largest community platform where users can engage in asynchronous discussions with other users and Unity team members, post questions, find answers, and share product feedback. It is a vast source of information on Unity-related topics and accessible to all Unity users.
The forums are divided into a range of sub-forums and spaces to account for the complexity of the Unity ecosystem. Among product specific categories such as the Multiplayer or Graphics forums, there are also spaces for you to show your work in progress, find contributors for a project and many more.
The forums provide you with opportunities to publicly share and discuss both solicited and unsolicited feedback. Many teams and individuals at Unity follow conversations and actively engage on the forums or even start discussion threads themselves in order to gather user feedback. Please note, however, that the forums are first and foremost a community space and as such, engagement is primarily community driven. This means that answers or reactions to your posts are not guaranteed.
You can share your feedback by contributing to active discussions or by starting new ones. To find related active discussions, you can either browse through sub-forums that are suitable to discuss the subject matter or use the forum’s search function. Active official feedback threads are often pinned to the top of their respective sub-forums so it is worth having a look there first.
If you want to start a new discussion, navigate to an appropriate sub-forum and create a new thread. Make sure to add the Feedback-prefix to the title of your thread to mark it as feedback and keep the Community Code of Conduct in mind when you compile your message.
The feedback our community provides is priceless. By publishing our roadmaps, we want to give you the opportunity to react and engage directly with the various teams building and evolving Unity products.
On the Unity Product Roadmap, you can explore current plans for how we aim to evolve our products, and send your feedback directly to the Product teams responsible for developing them. The Product Roadmap currently includes our development plans for:
More products will be added to the roadmap as our portfolio of products evolves and grows over time.
As you browse through the various sections of the Product Roadmap, you may come across a feature that you want to share your feedback on.
Simply click on a card to expand it, and indicate how important that feature is to you by ranking it as Nice-to-have, Important or Critical. You can then elaborate on why you need the feature and provide your email address - any additional information you provide will help us improve our products in the future.
The Product Manager responsible for the product you’ve provided feedback on will review your submission, and ensure that it’s been captured correctly. Your feedback will contribute directly to how we evolve our products. In some cases, the Product Manager may reach out to you to ask for further details about your feedback.
In every section of the Product Roadmap, you’ll find a card titled “Submit a new idea!”. We’d love to hear your ideas for new features to add to our products. Simply fill out the card, hit submit, and our Product Management team will receive your idea directly.
We can’t wait to hear your input on how to evolve our products!
