Add a description for VM in the portal
Add a description of the VM that will show up on the dashboard while pinning a VM. we have 10 VMs and we would like to get a briefed idea of which one is which - name is not enough.
IaaS Vm disk recovery process is not straightforward enough for emergency recoveries.
The process to recovery the and unwrap keys requires running powershell and manage-bde commands. The instructions provide a script example that where it resets the #Set-AzureRmKeyVaultAccessPolicy -VaultName $keyVaultName -PermissionsToKeys unwrapKey -PermissionsToSecrets get -UserPrincipalName $currentUser;
thus reducing the access privileges needed to successfully recover and access the key to be used with the Manage-bde command.
Once that line in the script is executed, any attempt to read and list the keys receives a forbidden error and fails to generate a recovery key file to apply.
An extension or a method a direct AZ commandlet would be more useful in recovering the and unlocking disks transferred to a new host.
I am really surprised this is not already a feature. It is especially necessary for shared dev environments where VMs may be managed my multiple people. Tags are not useful enough. We need a free-form Description field.

This could be very nice

That would be great, given we are only alowed limite number of characters in the VM name, having a description would add a great value in figuring out what each VM is for
