  1. Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise for students

    Before Microsoft Imagine products migrated to Azure Education, the free software offerings included Visual Studio IDE at all tiers (Community, Professional and Enterprise) soon after the release. I am a student with access to Azure Education account where I can see VS2015 and 2017 available, however there is still no 2019. Are there plans to add it as a free product for students? Please note that I'm asking specifically about (normally) products requiring paid license, i.e. Professional and Enterprise. Enterprise ships with Live Unit Testing which greatly improves productivity when working on university projects.

  2. usage report improvement

    Hi there,

    For now, we knew there's usage details csv file can be downloaded via cost management +billing -> invoice -> download -> download csv, however, it's not the report for actual charge. Please help to provide the way to download actual charge usage report in Azure portal with ACM permission. It will be very helpful!!

    Thank you!

  3. Invoicing with UBL/PEPPOL

    Microsoft currently sends their customers invoices in PDF-format. This is not an ideal format for processing by bookkeeping software.

    Please send invoices in the UBL-format (.xml files) as well, which is a format that is optimized for automated processing of invoices. Ideally, you could send these invoices through the secured PEPPOL-network, with which your customers receive the invoices directly in their bookkeeping software, instead of getting them by email.

  6. Prepaid credit Cards should be accepted.

    I was really surpized so many people have the same problem- after few of hours of fighth with non intuitive set of MS registration pages you get the message that Prepadid Card is not suitable for registration.
    Dear MS team - it's really very weak solution...

  11. AZURE free subscription Time Frame should be more than 1 Month with some minimal charges like 100 INR to 200 INR. It will be very helpful.

    AZURE free subscription Time Frame should be more than 1 Month with some minimal charges like 100 INR to 200 INR. It will be very helpful to those who are new to AZURE and students also. Instead of creating free account every month Microsoft can charge some nominal fees every month. It can be upto 500 INR/Month.

    Thanks.

  12. Azure Developer Support contract term

    Azure Developer Support agreement should mention the length of the support term as 6 months. I could not find any mention of the term length in the support agreement and the 29/month advertised price makes the support contract look like a month-month agreement. Also, Azure is a pay for what you use platform and a 6 month developer contract is the antithesis of that model. Please consider an as-needed support model for developers who may need to ask a question once a quarter.

  13. Ability to be able to set the billing currency per subscription

    I would like the ability to be able to set the billing currency at a Subscription level, not at the Account level.

    When you have a global service that has resources in different regions around the globe and the revenue that you receive is in the local currency then it would help if the costs are also in local currency.

    Also support then becomes more complex as each of our engineers is required to have an account on each Azure account using a different email address.

  17. why i can't have a free account azur ?

    Hello, I wanted to subscribe a free subscription because I form myself autonomously to this platform. And in response it is written that I am not eligible for the subscription. I do not understand why, I have never taken a free account before and I am a developer in microsoft technique. As I do not work at the moment I wanted to train on Azur through your courses. Please explain why I do not have access to a free account. Thank you so much.
