  2. Add LOCKS to the Column to the List

    Add the LOCKS field to the Column lists so I can add that view to my virtual machines view. I have 100 Virtual machines and there isn't a quick view I can use to see which VMs are protected and which VMs are not, I have to open each VM and look at locks, or I have to name each lock different so I can figure out which one is protected.

  5. Bring back simplicity of VM wizard menus

    The new portal is great for showing what's going on with our VMs, however, every time I want to configure it, it seems like the process is either x10 or x100 times harder.

    In the classic portal, setting up endpoints was easy. Now? No idea!

    As a software engineer who just wants VMs up and running in no time, the classical Azure portal made life easy. Please bring these configuration features back.

    I understand that server engineers will love the scripting part of it, but the vast majority of us don't fit into this speciality.

  6. Visual state (running/stopped) when a VM tile is 1x1

    It would be great if I could resize my VM tiles to 1x1, but still be able to check what VMs are running or stopped from there. Maybe changing the icon color to light gray when stoped, and blue when running

  10. More available layouts for tiles on the Dashboard

    Allow for a 1x2, 1x4, etc. tile setup. I cannot currently even get back to the original layout of the Resources tile.

  12. Enable a "Folder"-type tile

    We are an organization that creates a lot of webservices and storage accounts, and all. And it currently is a mess to navigate between all the webservices and their respective add-ons.
    Why should a webservice and one of its add-ons should be 2 separate tiles on the dashboard ? And to make navigation easier, why couldn't we create "Folders" in the dashboard to help organizing our numerous tiles ?

  13. Dashboard reader role in Azure porta;

    I am requesting for a dashboard reader role in Azure portal. We create a lot of dashboards based on Azure metrics or app insights. We share these dashboards with groups like help desk. We are currently adding the help desk group as a reader in the resource group. If there is a dashboard reader, that would be better preferred so we don't have provide read access which would allow the group to see more than what they are supposed to see.

  14. Ability to save and name time ranges on a dashboard so that I can recall them later.

    I am looking at performance data during load testing and I know the start and end times for the tests. I have multiple tests, so it would be nice to be able to save the time range of each test and then load it without having to manually enter the time ranges in every time I want to change tests.

  16. Allow customization of the Azure portal by query string for better integration with customer applications

    When linking the Azure portal to a customer web app, typically customers would like to customize the portal by query strings. Things lik
    -Collapse/expand favorite panel
    -Remove favorite panel and render in full screen.

    This specially important in the cases where non-IT users interacting with the portal for something like devtest labs

  17. Better way to organize multiple dashboards

    We have created a lot of dashboards with various metrics which are very useful for quick troubleshooting and monitoring but the dashboard dropdown shows only 10 dashboards in an arbitrary order so you have to use "Browse all dashboard" widget every single time. Would be very productive (especially when you are triaging production issues) if favorite dashboards are displayed in the dropdown or allows to chose the display order.

  18. colourising the resource groups

    The possibility of colourising the resource groups icon in azure portal may be useful in some scenarios.

  19. Ability to publish custom dashboard to external system (for example slack)
