  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. An undo feature for the dashboard

    Today I made an unintentional change to the size of my resources tile on the dashboard. Despite closing the browser window without hitting the Done button, the change remains.

    Though I attempted to re-pin the resources item to the dashboard it remains in the smaller size.

  6. Custom images on tiles

    I'm getting used to use my dashboard. And after organizing my graphs and tiles it has become my entry point to everything I do.

    However, -We quickly end up with lots tiles for VM's, Web apps and other resources. It's good that I can resize and group them, but as they all look the same it's kind of difficult to set them apart.

    I believe that if you could upload and set custom images on your tiles, it would make it easier to find and more personal.

  8. 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?

  9. Allow custom blades to be created in the portal

    Would like to be able add custom blades to the portal? I mean, something like a custom REST call/query, JSON config based, and/or eventually (ideally) some custom code or PS script? It may help a lot to fill some gaps every one of us tempt to find in the portal.

  10. Icons pinned to dashboard are too similar

    The icons displayed within the tiles pinned to the dashboard (e.g. Search Service, App Service etc.) are too similar, so it is quite hard to see which is which.

    Icons need to be more different and possible also coloured differently.

  11. Allow multi-tasking

    Currently, I can only monitor one resource at a time. It would be great if I could monitor more than one on the same screen, without having to switch back and forth.

  13. When hovering over the tile 'all resources' a pop-up with brief description would be handy

    The tiles already tell me whether it is a virtual machine of virtual network however especially in the beginning, when I'm new to Azure. The tiles aren't always clear to me. So a brief pop-up with the description would be handy. Thanks!

  14. Selecting a subscription is not intuitive.

    I had to spend some time to find out how to select a subscription. Selecting a subscription to work on is not intuitive. Once I select a subscription, that subscription name is not displayed anywhere.

  15. Clicking and dragging a tile on the home screen should invoke customization mode.

    When I click and drag a tile on the Azure Ibiza Portal, I should automatically be put into customization mode, OR, the tile should simply move where I drag it to, without entering the full customization mode. I'm not sure which implementation would be more practical, but I feel as if something should happen. Right now, it only selects text.

  16. Ensure existing functionality is not lost with updates.

    For example up until very recently there were a number of tiles on the Web App blade that were extremely useful, such as the "Active Deployment" tile showing the status of a build. Being able to pin this tile from several different web apps to the dashboard and projecting the dashboard on the wall for the dev team to see was very useful. Now we have to wade through the blades of different apps to see what is happening with builds, preventing us seeing all that we need to at once.

    An example of a useful sysadmin tile is the…

  17. Add Dashboard Tiles Icon Size Configuration Option

    In the config options for the tile, add the ability to increase icon size to fill more of the available space.

  18. progress bar location

    The progress bar of any activity is shown under the alerts bell menu. I think it should be put down together with the action notification banner.

  19. 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 ?

  20. 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).
