  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. Require Tenant Admin approval before allowing Free trial or Pay as you go subscriptions to be created under tenant User accounts.

    Currently, if users sign up for a free trial of Azure or a pay as you go subscription in azure with their work accounts (AAD accounts), the subscription is created in the tenant their AAD accounts live in. This happens a lot when the userbase goes to Azure training. This is causing a ton of subs to show up in the tenant and is deluging the list to an unmanageable state for the tenant admins. The request is to make it where you can not create a new subscription using an AAD account without Tenant Admin consent. There could be…

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. Set default pricing tier to Free

    Ref. SR#119081423000374

    Customer complaint the default pricing tier is not Free(if the service has free tier).
    Based on his 20 years experience as a software designer, Yahoo! commercial platform senior engineer, and e-commercial website designer, he realizes things related to money is sensitive and need to handle carefully.

    This time he just changed his deployment region to other one, the system changed to (add a new) App service plan which pricing tier is S1. He said customers are easily mislead and choose wrong pricing tier.

    So please set default pricing tier to Free if the resource has free tier.
    Thanks!

  7. Create a local billing center for South Africa

    South African Reserve Bank restrictions limits international credit card transactions to less than 50 000 ZAR. South African businesses and startups building on Azure quickly runs into this limitation and then have no option but to switch to invoice-based billing.

    If you establish a local billing center we would be able to keep using automatic card-based payments without this restriction.

    See the linked article for more information.

  8. Configuration Manager CMG support on CSP subscriptions

  10. 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. Allow all Billing Administrators to update payment methods

    Only the account creator can update the payment method. This is really limiting when there are payment issues with a CC. Our billing administrator cannot update it. And co-administrators or others with full admin access can update it. Only the creator. This is very limiting and makes managing the account challenging. AWS lets me do this!

  14. Show all subscriptions

    In the portal you only show 100 subscriptions. I manage more that that. You do it because some pages become slow when they have to show 130 subscriptions instead of 100. But you are measuring the wrong timing. Because searching in 100, not finding, enabling to search in all my 130, and then finding is for the user much slower than just searching in the 130 subscriptions from the start.

    So measuer how long your users use to achieve something instead of how long your pages use to load. Because that is what matters.

    And please make something like "[x]…

  16. Azure Pass - Sponsorship Time Limit Extension

    As someone who has received sponsorship credit, it would be nice if the time limit was a minimum of 3 months (or even the default of 12 that other services get). A month to try out things for someone who does not use Azure day in/day out is not long to fully use the subscription credits.

  17. Support for changing country of an Azure account.

    It is currently not possible to change the country code associated with an Azure account in self-service mode. There may be situations when a change is needed, e.g. due to a mistake or change of account ownership.

  18. Change Azure Invoice to have Line Item totals match totals at the bottom of the invoice

    Modify Azure invoices so each line item is flagged with a code that indicates it is related to 1) EA Azure Monetary Commit Credits 2) Charges Billed Separately and 3) Marketplace Charges. Then add separate totals for all 3 of these at the bottom of the Invoice. Today, Only the total due shows at the bottom of invoice, and there's no way from the invoice to tell which line items are included in the total.
    This would also make it easier to match the invoice to the Azure portal Cost Management and Billing screens. See Azure Support request # 119081924004542…

  19. Don't forfeit credits after 12 months for active users

    Currently, any credit on a token expires after 12 months, so users must guesstimate how much they need. I suggest that, rather than this, you allow users to move the credit on as long as they are using the service, a little like pay as you go mobile phones
