    • Allow me to search Bing in my instance

      Maybe I'm just not seeing the option but I just want to embed a search on my site that searches Bing and shows results as if I were on Bing.com. Any way to do this?

      • Google Tag Manager support

        The hosted UI JS snippet doesn't work with Google Tag Manager - the preview mode for GTM breaks when the JS snippet is loaded.

        • Make it easier to give feedback

          I've started using BCS API as a replacement for GSS on a nationally known brand in the UK. I found your channel 9 video inviting feedback and also the bing api team blog and even a thread on hackernews but I still had no way to give you feedback. It was almost by luck that I stumbled across this uservoice forum. Please try and make the channels for feedback and getting in touch as clear as possible or you may be missing lots of important feedback.
