  1. Change Partner of Record to be per subscription

    At large corporations, usually there are multiple partners who are heavily involved with different pieces of Azure deployments or projects. In that case, who gets to the "the" partner of record?

    It would be helpful if Partner of Record was marked at the subscription level and any subscription admin could mark it in the Azure Portal.

  2. More then 1 account owner please

    It is only this person that can create subscriptions within the account. We are a large organization and we are dependent on 1 single person to do this task. Please, please make it possible to delegate this to a AzureAD group or that we can add mulitipe persons as account owners. You already have this possibility on the Department level so why not implement the same thing on the account level?

  4. EA billing data is available within minutes

    Currently our customers need to wait between 2 and 3 days before the billing data is available in the EA Billing API. Microsoft comits to give the full billing details only after 5 days, which is too important.

    Some customers have big consumption bursts (20K€ for example) and would like to be able to see the billing data in "real time", or at least the next day. Not 3 or 4 days after the burst happened.

    In short, customers want to be able to monitor their consumption with fewer latencies.

  5. Link For a Billing Proposal Screen

    The idea is to get an Billing proposal screen on dashboard to get the Price quote For the resources we are going to use .
    For EX: currently azure cost displayed when we go to add the resource like a VM or a sql server or create a site . we don't have any option to know what will tell what will be monthly billing if i go for a VM/SQL server/App pool/ site all along . i have to calculate manually to get a total cost .
    It will be Good if there will be link like Billing Proposal…

  6. The Azure Open subscription should provision a PaaS service like mySQL service, or Drupal

    The Azure Open subscription should provision a PaaS service like mySQL service, or Drupal

    The Azure Open subscription seems to be very limited in the use of PaaS services. It isn't possible to provision a mySQL service, or Drupal. This blocks me from using Azure.

  8. Include a Pricing Calculator in the new portal and allow me to save, reference and tweak them on the fly.

    I can use the Pricing Calculator and save a quote to an Excel file, but I would like to be able to save a quote online, go back to it and make changes on the fly. Even better, include this tool in the portal so that it can automatically reference my subscription and the associated pricing structure.

  9. change of currency

    Please let us choose and change our billing currency.

    A the moment my billing currency dors not match my crédit card and bank. And I can't create a new account because the transfer of assets and BizSpark benefits are cumbersome at most.

  10. Make it easier/more intuitive to delete a free trial.

    I don't appreciate you forcing me to look at a disabled free trial, instead of allowing me to delete it. Your efforts to induce me to convert it to a paid account are obvious and irritating. Just delete it, or allow the user to delete it.

  13. Need to be able to track spend better than we can at the moment.

    We cannot track spend on the portal in real time. Have to use power BI which is an issue.

  14. Ensure the Usage and Billing reports use only ONE name to refer to a datacenter e.g. Australia East

    Currently the usage and billing reports refer to the Australia East datacenter as Australia East, aueast, and AU East depending on which resource is deployed.

    This is frustrating when trying to report and use tools like the PowerBI link for billing - the usage and billing report MUST be reliable and consistent and basic things like consistent names for datacenters should just happen, even if usage/billing needs to run some extra step to adjust the report before it gets to the customer.

    Thanks for the post. We’re aware of this issue and are working to standardize datacenter names across resource providers in the billing reports. We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing and thank you for your patience.

  15. Add something for free trial

    If you can have one instance where you can see how things work without putting in a credit card number, that would be fabulous.

  16. Allow DPO, AP as a valid address when inputing credit card info.

    upon creating the account the system doesn't think my address is correct even though it is.
    Test it you will see. Create an account with a DPO address and watch it fail.

  17. When Microsoft send me email about for example billing, please include the admin account or domain in every email.

    Senario:
    I get email notifications from Azure without the admin account (like they do in Office 365 (admin@site.onmicrosoft.com). I have now 14 different Azure instances that I mange and it is impossible to know which instance its about.

    Solution: Add information like Office 365 to every email you send:

    Organization: Metier as
    Domain: XXXXXX.onmicrosoft.com
    Your billing statement is ready to be viewed.
    To view your statement:
    Sign in to the customer portal with your User ID:
    Name: Arne Røst
    User ID: arne@xxxxxxx.onmicrosoft.com

  18. Allow partners to provide an Azure Trial for prospective clients

    You allow for Trials direct from Microsoft but you do not allow partners to host a trial like you do with O365. Why not???
