  1. Expand the 'Message' function

    It would be cool if you could also send a 'Gaming session' proposal to friends, where you suggest date(s) for meeting online to play.

    The proposal should include fields like:
    - Headline
    - Recipients
    - Proposed date
    - Game to play
    - Comments field

    When the proposal has been send, recipients can choose accept, tentative or decline.
    Recipients should also be able to propose an alternative date and/or add a comment.

    All involved parties should be able to see who has accepted, declined etc and see all comments and any alternative proposed dates.

    Reason for idea: Having kids/family and a…

  2. Increase the Friend limit from 1060 to 2000

    While not everyone will befriend 2000 people, this should be an option for anyone that's very social on Xbox's One social network. One that would help the users gain more followers and keep in contact/up to date with more Xbox members.

  3. Set Reminders for Community Calendar Events

    Make it so if people are playing a video game or doing something else they get a notification from the event they scheduled on the calendar

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "Make an Xbox One Calendar that shows event notifications" to reflect the fact that this idea can now apply specifically to the newly implemented Community Calendar.]

  5. Redesign the new Xbox One 'Friends' dashboard.

    Please redesign the new XB1 Friends dash. It is visually a mess - too cluttered - and offers no social functionality we want to use such as friend messaging, party joining\inviting, changing our online\offline status, viewing and commenting on feed posts etc.

    Suggestion: Replace the "What games are popular with friends" section with rotating posts from our Friends Feed; allowing us to interact with each post, before they refresh. Also reduce the size of the Leaderboards table ... it doesn't need to be so big.

  6. Remove friends who Remove me

    There should be an option for this.
    Im not going so far as to ask for notification for this (everyone knows how much drama will ensue)
    But I think the friends list would be a little more manageable if it could remove certain people from my list should they remove me.

  7. See friends wallpapers instead of colours when viewing profile.

    This will be pretty cool, I mean sure the colours thing works but it's kind of lame, I think seeing what people have as their profile bakcground would be much more interesting and unique compared to the 6 colours we can choose from.

  8. Hide select friends user activity on your feed.

    I want to be able to hide/block activity from some of my friends, or only show favorited friends activity in my feed. Activity I care about gets drowned by friends activity I don't care to much about.

  16. Send Xbox Live Messages (Voice & Text) to a User's Connected Phone as a Text

    As an Xbox One user
    I want to have the ability to send messages (voice or standard message) from my Xbox One console to the mobile phone numbers or email addresses of the contacts in my friends list.
    So that I am able to advise my contacts that I am online and keen to play.

  17. Please remove suggested friends and random posts on activity feed

    Removal or option to turn off suggested friends and random posts on activity feed. It's supposed to be a personal co sole experience so I cannot understand why you would want these options switched on to flood your dash

  19. Remove Followers from Followers List When They Become Friends

    I think that if you follow someone back they should be removed from the followers list and just be shown in your friends list... This would help avoid confusion between the two and reduces "clutter" on the followers list (and there wouldn't be a need for the "friends icon" on the followers list either).

  20. Filter/Sort Activity Feed (Status Updates, Clips, Achievements, etc.)

    Similar to how on your friends list you can "change view", it'd be great to have the ability to sort your activity feed by the following categories:
    -Status Updates
    -Clips
    -Achievements
    -and other things that may get posted to the activity feed.

    Sometimes I like to scroll through it only reading people's status updates, and other times I'm really looking for new clips.

    Additionally, filtering by favorites and all friends would be cool too.
