Secret Tip: OK it isn't really a secret just not well known. Each product has a Autodesk Product Feedback Form. You select the product and then in clear and concise detail explain your problem or feedback good & bad and it sends an email to most product managers and some on the product teams. Just let them know what they are doing right and should keep doing, suggestions, or issues.
