  2. Dashboard time/timezone

    I want to make a suggestion for the Azure dashboard feature.

    I generally like this feature and it is very useful for me but there is a suggestion regarding UI which can be improved.

    The time/timezone feature can be aligned with the other buttons Fullscreen, Clone, Delete like on the picture.

    This modification can provide even much more space on the dashboard so the customers can put more pieces of information.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This 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. Dashboard Input Fields

    I would like to be able to add input fields to dashboards that can be applied to the charts. A basic input field may be a dropdown (ideally dynamic). For instance, if I had a chart showing CPU% for a specific VM then I would like to be able to switch to a different VM through a dropdown field. Similar to how Splunk has implemented this feature. https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Viz/Buildandeditforms

  5. refresh

    Only the tiles that are generated by Application insights get auto refreshed properly. Charts created manually in the Logs are not able to be auto- refreshed, having a refresh button on the tile instead. Any one can help with this please?

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. Ability to integrate OMS solutions with Azure Dashboard

    Hey Guys,

    This is great thing that OMS portal is migrating within Azure portal but I am little excited about OMS dashboard, what if we can add solutions which we have enabled in log analytics with Azure dashboard and that would be great place to monitor all in one view . Currently I can't see the any log analytic solution that integrated with Dashboard view. Thanks

  10. 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.

  12. 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'!

  14. Enable pinning Azure Resource Roles to dashboard

    While Azure AD roles - Eligible or Active have pinning option, Azure Resource Roles don't have any pin option. Many projects have access defined based on resources rather than AD.

  15. Bring back old Application Insights tiles

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

  16. Allow wider tiles

    Dashboard tiles from App Insights can't be bigger than 4x2. On the Metrics explorer though you have graphs spanning the width of the dashboard. I'd like to be able to put those really wide tiles on a dashboard. They would be especially useful for a 7 day timeline.

  18. 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.

  19. Identify multiple subscriptions and their resources by colors

    For accounts with multiple subscriptions, it often becomes clumsy to visualize which resources belong to what subscription. It would be appealing if the subscriptions (and underlying resources) could be set a color of user's choice so that resources under different subscriptions can be identified in a better way.
    Thank you

  20. Pin filtered resources to Azure Dashboard

    In Azure you can filter your resources, e.g. resource groups, by certain filters like specific tags. It would be nice to pin that filtered list to your dashboard.
    Currently, it you filter a list in Azure and then pin it to the dashboard, it is pinned without the filters applied. This way you could pin dynamic lists, e.g. all resources tagged with your department tag.
