  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Create custom tiles

        Now we have the option to create custom dashboards with tiles organized by related resources or team, Allowing us to create CustomTiles to customize our dashboards will improve the dashboard experience.

        Our application use some administration pages to monitor application internal events like:
        Customer Registration, Customers Online, Notifications, etc.

        If we could provide a json file or fill a form with all configurations needed to render the tile like:
        Type: Standard(icon and name), Chart(donnut, bar, etc)
        Tile Title
        Icon: Icon Url
        DataSource: Url that return a series of data to fill a Chart or for example the number of connected…

          We’ve added some custom configurable tiles such as; ‘markdown’ (allows custom markdown), ‘armData’ (will display data from a defined arm GET), and ‘armActions’ (creates a button which will create a user defined arm POST call)

        • Support setting default Dashboard and sorting of the dashboards

          Allow people to set the default Azure Portal dashboard and also provide sorting within the dashboard dropdown.

          • Refresh button for Azure dashboard

            At present there is no way to refresh a table for eg. a table showing containers in a particular storage. I ran my script to add containers to a storage. Now I have to refresh the whole page to check is it was created or not. Same is the case with instances and most of the tables.

            • Pin to Dashboard - Allow selection of Dashboard when pinning tile

              When pinning a tile to a dashboard, for example the Cosmos Db Throttled Request Metric from Cosmos Db Account via Resource Group. The tile is always pinned to the last dashboard that was created.
              It would be great to click the Pin to Dashboard and then be able to choose which Dashboard to pin the tile to.
              We have a number of dashboards, including one for each customer.

              • Customize color of metric graphs pinned to Dashboard

                We use multiple dashboards extensively on large walled displays for operational center-like monitoring of key diagnostics to visualize servers and services.

                The latest improvement to Azure Monitor and the metric graphs that are pinned to a dashboard are a great improvement, but the color-scheme of the chart lines and the legend of performance counters are now making harder to see key information.

                Please add support to customize the color of each series line in a chart and also to customize the text of the series in the legend to be more legible.

                  • Add ability to modify Tag tiles on dashboard.

                    I'd like to propose an option to customize Tag tiles as now it is not very descriptive. The ability to change default layout of "key: value" with Single Name, and change the icon to one of the standard icons as: VM, NIC, etc.

                    • Support for paging on tiles

                      Taking the Billing tile on the dashboard: the billing information is being automatically cycled between the subscriptions, but it would be good if the user could just cycle between them or pause the auto-cycling.

                      • Tie dashboards to user, not directory

                        I manage multiple subscriptions across directories. When I log into Azure I want to see, at a glance:
                        1) a dashboard where I can put production services from all directories I am part of, so I can see *all* systems' status info without opening multiple tabs
                        2) a dashboard where I can put dev/test service info from an MSDN subscription in our organization's directory, right next to production service info from our client's directory

                        • Dashboard tile auto arrangements

                          The locations of the tiles on the dashboard can easily become a mess. It would be great to have the same experience as in Windows 8 with the start screen (automatic tile arrangement, preview of the new tile arrangement when moving tiles, etc.).

                          • Add more information to the tiles

                            There's a lot of wasted space inside the tiles.
                            For example, in a virtual machine tile, you could add the current public and local IP and the status (executing/stopped).

                                  • Fix the user interface of the Autoscale setting blade to prevent clicks on the wrong button

                                    Me and my colleagues have very often inadvertently clicked on the "Enable autoscale" button of the "Autoscale setting" blade, while we actually wanted to save the new instance count.

                                    We believe that that is caused by these interface issues:
                                    - the "Save" button is place above the form instead of below it
                                    - the "Enable autoscale" button is too close to the form and is styled as the main call to action on the page
                                    - the "Save" button is styled as one of the many secondary calls to action on the page.

                                    Please see the attachments to see the…

                                      Make names of the pinned items on Dashboard editable.
                                      For examples I have pipelines section pinned from different data factories on dashboard it would be good if I can name them differently. In general it would be easy if I can rename components pinned on Dashboard.

                                      • Customize default dashboard for new subscriptions

                                        Azure Stack admins should be able to change the default dashboard for new subscriptions for tenants.
                                        This would highly improve the tenants first impression and ability to learn Azure Stack.
                                        Examples of topics to put in the dashboard:
                                        Company logo
                                        Corp/Hoster specific information
                                        Links to movies/documentation/alm-platforms

                                        • Tile background color

                                          It would be useful if we could assign a background color to tiles. This could be used in visualizing/categorizing services, customers or various deployment stages. Imagination really.

                                          See attached screenshot.
                                          Mabye as a start?
