  1. Specify the time span to other time zones except UTC in Usage API

    When using Usage API now, we can only specify the time span to UTC.
    As a result, in other time zones, when we want to compare the pricing value between the API and Azure portal, we have to check the value at midnight. (A time zone which is + 8 hour or more will not be midnight, but we have to check it eary in the morning)

    Therefore, it will be better if we can specify a time zone except UTC or a time span except 0:00 ~ 0:00. (We can only specify 0:00 ~ 0:00 if we set the…

      • Unable to sign up with correct country

        When signing up for a new account, the drop down automatically displays my own country. But there is no button to proceed. Instead the page expects the user to select a country for the drop down, and then proceeds automatically after that. The result is, that the signup process can only proceed by selecting any OTHER COUNTRY than my actual country - which is frankly, extremely annoying. Clicking the correct country (already highlighted in the drop down list) does not make the signup continue.

        • Cannot change payment method for new subscription

          Where:

          account.windowsazure.com

          Trail:

          New Subscription -> Pay-As-You-Go -> Payment Information -> Change payment method

          The page shows some old credit card, which I want to change, but the progress bar just seems to be never ending.

              • Back button from "Add subscription-->Select an offer" screen

                As a user I would like to have the option to easily get back to the previous screen from the "Add subscription-->Select an offer" screen so that I can more easily continue my work in case I missclicked or no longer wants to create a new subscription.

                • Free 30-day trial

                  I know that I have used 30-days for my private hobby project on my personal hotmail account, where I spent 30-days waiting for support to return with the login to my server and I had to shut it down because I didn not want to pay for a server I did not have access to. So when my boss had bought a new IoT device with a sign that said 30 day azure trial and my private trial periode was used, I did what your sales person said. I created a new account with my job mail, job phone and…

                              • You force us

                                You force users to reveal credit card information to start it free. This is illegal and not a good practice even you are not charging it. I did not find any logic to get identity of an user with the help of credit card. If you want to validate there are a number of Govt Identities, Mobile, Email Id etc. I object current strategy and it is not going to work

                                • More graceful FREE ACCOUNT

                                  As Azure free account is wireed to phone number, I know it sometimes makes trouble for training. If the phone number is used for free account, the number cannot use for more free account.

                                  This is actually inconvenient for training, trial evaluation, and initial development.

                                  The free account of IBM bluemix is easier. It requires mail address only.

                                  Please examine azure free account for such kind of trial use.

                                    • Allow developers to renew Developer Program Benefit subscription

                                      The developer program benefit that comes with visual studio dev essentials is a welcome addition as it gives us a small credit allowing us to use Azure services without getting charged. However this benefit is only valid for one year. Once that year is complete there is no longer an option for renewing it or signing up again. Furthermore I've had the experience of having services and data on Azure under development which then were shut down at the end of the subscription with the only option to move them to a paid subscription. I find this unfair, developers do…

                                      • Fix the burn rate projection

                                        Fix the burn rate projection. I don't know what it's based on or what causes it to be consistently lower than the actual realistic projection (maybe you have a UTC offset bug or something?), but this is unreliable and I have to make my own projections by hand each month.

                                        Thanks!
                                        ~Lars

                                        • Rate Card API : please add DS instance types, OS & Software pricing

                                          Rate Card API:
                                          - DS instance types missing
                                          - OS & Software pricing missing
                                          - zone1 to zone5 should be mapped to right locations.
