  2. Honor the Dark color theme setting across all Azure pages

    Some Azure pages expose a theme setting (e.g., Light, Dark), which is great. But when using the Dark theme, many Azure pages use a Light theme instead. (E.g., this feedback page and even the Azure search page don't honor the Dark theme.) This creates a visually straining, high-contrast experience that is the opposite of what the Dark theme is typically trying to achieve.

  3. Feature to display timespan on the tile where it differs from the dashboard

    FIrstly now that the timespan for individual tiles can be customised, this needs to be displayed (or available for display) on the tile.
    And where the timespan of the tile does differ from the dashboard, it should be displayed.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  4. Auto refreshing tiles

    Instead of having a button to refresh everything. It would be alot more useful if the tiles would just update with the latest info on its own.

  5. Replace the old View Designer from OMS

    Hi,
    With the decommissioning of OMS, the View Designer is also gone. There is no other easy way to design dashboards in the portal at this moment. When will the replacement for the View Designer be available??
    Cheers, BartT

  6. Azure Portal: Save or remember my sorting and/or grouping setting

    Working with the Azure Portal, my personal workflow is:
    1. Enter URL in browser: https://portal.azure.com/
    2. In my favorites on the left site I click on resource groups
    3. I choose one of my resource groups
    4. Inside the resource group grid view I click on type to sort my resources by type

    It would help me a lot and save plenty of time if I could save my sort option as standard view, so every time no matter from what browser or computer I open the resource group, my personal sort and/or grouping option is displayed. Thanks!

  7. 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.

  10. Hierarchical view of the Subscriptions or Resources

    Currently the Azure portal gives only a list of the contents in a tabular format, which makes it difficult to understand how the resources are organized.
    There is also a value in mentioning the cost against each resource to improve User Experience.

    The idea is to give an ILLUSTRATION of the assets or resources managed by the users.
    The resources in Azure can be organized in a hierarchical way to represent the way they are being used.
    The attachment has a sample illustration which can be auto generated from Visio to explain the user.
    If the user has bought Visio…

  12. Azure Policy: Use policy to limit options surfaced in portal

    If my policy only allows D series VMs, then when I get to the SKU selection blade during VM creation or resize, I should only see the allowed options.

  13. Change (back) the font size/boldness of the bricks in the Azure dashboards.

    Why is the font size so large/bold now in the dashboards? It makes it hard to use 1x1 bricks. This seems to be a very recent change that breaks several of our existing dashboard layouts.

  14. Bring back old Application Insights tiles

    Old Application Insights metric tiles were very convenient. There was no need to write queries for most metrics.

  15. Either fix the new large tile text font, or remove the option to create 1 x 1 tiles

    Either fix the new large tile text font, or remove the option to create 1 x 1 tiles. Look at the attached screenshot to see what a recent update has done! Apparently this is 'by design'!

  17. Important announce should use notification in azure.

    Important announce is not use blog, but should use notification in azure.

    Now, I can not use TCP 25port because I migrated subscription to MSDN.

    Recentry I read this blog.
    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/mast/2017/11/15/enhanced-azure-security-for-sending-emails-november-2017-update/

    If this announce would be not blog, but would be notification in azure, I didn't migrate my subscription.

    I hope important announce will be notification in azure because I can not notice blog released.

  19. 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.

    Refer to the attached screenshot of a portion…
