  1. Ability to move resources from one resource group to another

    In regard to Resource Groups, there is a particular feature I feel is missing: the ability of moving one resource from a resource group to another. Basically, the situation is like this: upon the lauch of the new portal, each of my Azure storage accounts and websites I've been using was added into a single Resource Group. Therefore, website A which was consuming data from a storage account with a similar name (A) ended up into two different Resource Groups: Default-Storage-NorthEurope and Default-Web-NorthEurope. Right now, whenever I navigate to the Resource Groups blade I get lots of generic named resource…

    Hey Folks,

    We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

    We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

    Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

    Thanks,
    Azure Portal Team

  2. move services between subscriptions

    I've noticed that many people want this, an easy way to move not only Virtual Machine but also websites, cloud services, SQL Databases between datacenters / subscriptions. I'm looking forward to this feature.

  3. Do more in place and use the full screen - avoid horizontal scrolling

    Simplify the portal by doing more in place. The horizontal scrolling seems to cause too many, unnecessary clicks, which makes the UI to jump around a lot and quickly becomes overwhelming with so much on the screen at once. It's hard to focus on what's most important and, when there's only one blade, half the screen is empty with critical messages all the way on the other side. Make better use of screen real estate and stop moving things around so much. It's distracting. I love the portal, but all the movement gets in the way. Let us focus on…

    Thanks for the feedback. We’re working on this. We started with the top bar, then added favorites, and continued by shrinking the list of resources after opening the resource blade. Much more is in the works — all based on your feedback. Keep it coming and, in the meantime, we’ll keep working on this to streamline the experience for you.

  4. Allow for comments or notes on resources

    A text description on resources/things would be great for keeping track of what each resource/thing is.

  6. Azure Designer tool

    My Idea was to create a Azure Designer tool in the Azure portal which can enable Azure Engineers and Architects to design a Azure services as per customer requirements and convert them as a blue print or Archictect diagrams for customers or for implementations.

  7. List of ALL the subscriptions associated to my User Login.

    Currently the portal shows in the "Subscriptions" section only the subscription associated to the Directory (AAD) that is selected by default. I have several subscriptions associated to several directories.

  8. One portal for all Microsoft products i.e (azure+office365+intune)

    This might be additional feature in the marketplace to connect intune, office365 or any other Microsoft product.

  9. Add Generate Powershell Script options wherever possible in the Azure Management portal

    Like in SQL server Management Studio - you can set up what you want to do and then click a Save as Script or Generate Script button to get the SQL that will do the same thing.

    In the Azure Portal, it would be awesome at the end of the "New" wizards to have an option to generate the Powershell commands to do the same thing.

  10. Improve Portal Performance

    The Azure Portal performance is horribly slow! The blades take too much time to load and keep moving back and forward while loading. Switching from one "Blade Flow" to another take about half a minute of loading time.

    I know there is already an issue similar to this in this User Voice, however someone from Microsoft marked the task as Completed. Clearly this is not completed or fixed. Our whole company is adopting Microsoft Azure and this is the number one complaint that I have. I can also help replicate it if need be, but I am sure it is…

    Hey,

    This is something we’re still actively working on. It has a been a big area of investment and it still is moving forward. We keep investing in performance, both from a client and server side perspective.

    We have a few things coming in the near future which should help address some of the initial UI performance issues. We’re also heavily engaged with all of our partners driving a broad effort to improve performance across the portal for all experiences.

    If you have any specific areas which are causing pain please feel free to reach out to me or comment and state if we can contact you, it would be great to understand the common pain points.

    Cheers,
    Sean.

  11. Refresh button in each blade

    Provide a refresh button/option in each blade.
    Scenario i found this need: provisioning a SharePoint farm. In the process of Azure assets creation, when i look at the resource group blade, i need to hit F5 to see the process of different VMs, cloud services etc being created.

    Not high level priority but can be useful.

  12. Make the portal(s) tabbed browsing friendly

    The new portal while shiny and new, and metro, and shiny, can be a bit of a beautiful annoyance at times. My current annoyance is that navigating between two related, but not the same entities is frustrating. In a tabbed browsing approach, this is a single click on the correct tab in my browser. In the new portal, this is a bunch of clicks depending on the level of shared hierarchy. Neither right clicking / middle clicking work to allow me to open a view in a new window. Please consider the target users of this portal (they're going to…

  13. Merge Resource Groups

    As an azure user I would like the ability to select two or more resource groups in the portal and select merge which would result in all the groups being consolidated into one. One of the selected resource groups would be selected as the "target" group and all other groups would be removed.

    This would be a faster version of the delete and consolidate option I've also posted.

  14. Allow pinned tile configuration to include label customization

    Customization options for pinned tiles are limited to size. In order to help create a more task-drive friendly environment, allowing renaming of tiles would be very helpful. For instance rather that have 4 tiles say "Site Settings" for my sites, allow me to label them so I can distinguish them.

  15. Fullscreen Query String Option on Dashboards

    Allow a query string option for invoking full screen on a dashboard. This would be used to automate the display of full screen dashboards in a rotating manner.

    The current implementation of "Fullscreen" allows for a user to click a button to invoke full screen. However, in automation systems that rotate screens the option is lost and not easily invoked. Please add an additional option to automatically invoke via query string similar to Power BI and other services.

  16. LET ME CHANGE MY PROFILE PICTURE!

    I'm using the account assigned by my company (not a Microsoft account). I updated my profile picture and I see the new picture in Outlook an Skype, but I still see the old picture when I login to Microsoft Azure. Is there a way to see the new picture when I login to portal.azure.com? Thanks.

  19. When selecting a location, how to save as DEFAULT.

    When creating a new VM, I have to choose my location each time - eg. I choose 'South-East Australia' everytime.

    It would be good to have this as a "Portal Setting"

    Azure should have a option to rename the "ResourceGroup". That would be easier for us to manage the resources
