The Microsoft User Research team is planning to incorporate feedback into future product improvements, the SharePoint Team Blog reveals.
In the coming weeks, the software company”s researchers are intending to undertake a series of studies in order to assess the problems encountered by users of the platform.
Frequent users of the software are currently particularly sought after by the team, the SharePoint blog adds.
"In a nutshell, the team focuses on how people interact with hardware and software products," the blog post explains.
"And then the information and feedback gathered is translated directly into product improvements."
Such improvements may include more effective document conversion or image viewers in future SharePoint incarnations.
Meanwhile, the SharePoint Team Blog previously noted the demonstration of Visual Studio 2010 Tools for SharePoint at the TechEd EMEA conference in Barcelona.
At the event, Visual Studio general manager Jason Zander showed delegates how the tools may be used to view artifacts and lists from SharePoint within Visual Studio.
The Server Explorer application is used for such processes, the blog post explains.
Developers could find image viewers or document conversion add-ons to be of assistance in carrying out similar functions not directly supported within the Visual Studio software environment.
