ArcGIS Pro UI dialogs could provide a bug status indicator to give a user an idea of the road ahead.
*Each bug listing entry includes an “I need this to work” button for the user to click to register their desire to have Esri make the product do what it says it does. This can be used by Esri for prioritization. Also, if the user is signed in to something Esri (ArcGIS Online, GeoNet, my.esri.com, etc.), they get access to the “internal” bug listing as well as the external bug listing, if such dichotomy exists.
It seems that most, if not all of the components to support this idea are available. Just a matter of linking up UI elements to the big box of uniquely identified and documented bugs. Existing symbols from the GP tools parameter field status indicator could be re-used as the UI dialog symbol. Yellow and / or red could be on at the same time.
Maybe go so far as to integrate the bug reporting process into the UI dialogs where the user can initiate a bug report at the point of suspected failure, let ArcGIS Pro gather its logs, let the user edit the log and submit it for support to review.
Example - Ok, so I need to get some geo-work done. I haven’t used these particular tools in ArcGIS Pro yet, so I go read the help, follow the guidance, click the “OK” button, and… not ok. Try again, investigate, research, fail, mess with GeoNet, spend time not getting any geo-work done. Example:
