  1. Dashboard need to be more userfriendly

    consider you are in the vm blade and you click on the dashboard icon. It will return to the dashboard.
    and your vm is listed in the dashboard.
    if you click on the vm icon again from the dashboard, it wont redirect to the vm blade,
    if you want to access the vm , then
    1 you have to click any other controls or links from the dashboard.
    2
    click the dashboard again
    3* click the vm icon, now you are on the vm blade.

    need to improve..,

  4. Runbook invocation should show a drop-down for Parameters with a ValidateSet attribute attached.

    Currently runbooks with a ValidateSet will display a string input box with NO HELP as to what the intended value of the parameter should be, the only option for the user is to start the runbook and cry when it fails.

    I think the portal should be smart enough to show a drop-down menu of possible options.

  6. Lock open the sidebar

    Having the main left hand sidebar menu automatically minimize to a row of unfamiliar icons is both irritating and unnecessary on a high resolution screen.

    Please provide the ability to lock open the sidebar in the new portal to show both icons and text.

  8. Responsive design in table views - adjust width to screen size

    At least within intune/users+groups the width of the group table is fixed. The white space to the right is bigger than the table itself. No way to resize manually. Not yet figured out if this applies to all table views.

  10. Delete dashboard with resource group

    When doing a lot of demos I create new dashboards per event, training etc. and usually I create resources in the same resource group and put them on that dashboard.
    It would be nice to have an option to tie a dashboard to a resource group so when deleting the resource group it would also delete the dashboard.

  11. Sorting the virtual machines based on running status.

    In the portal.azure.com, when we view the virtual machine resources, it is getting listed by the name of the VM, status, resource group, location, subscription. Where we are allowed to sort the resources by name, location, resource group, location, subscription but not by the status. It would be great if we have this. This will help the infra maintenance engineers while collecting data from the portal

  12. It is nice to have 3 categories over "Notifications" under home tab

    It is nice to have categorize the notification to Warning , informational and critical and provide a proper color coding such as yellow,blue & red. some notifications are not getting notified properly so if you provide a proper lightning with above color code it should be monitored every time by the user

  13. Minimal Load on the browser.

    When we are selling the idea of the cloud to customers, we are inferring to move all the computing to our cloud machines which can be accessed from machines with minimal load on them. To empower this idea, we have to even more reduce the number of scripts and files that load when we login to the azure portal, it should be accessible easily from a small configuration machine without hassles like Chromebooks and other tablets.

  14. Customize the Azure Portal Chart Text Sequence in Dashboard

    for example, while customize the SQL database connections,
    if anyone add another item (e.g. Blocked by firewalls),
    the text "Blocked by firewalls" will be listed in the far left hand,
    the Chart does not allow to modify the sequence of the text in Chart Graph.

  16. Add More Colors on the Azure Dashboard.make it a bit more vibrant

    Kindly add more colors to the Azure Dashboard. Make the Tiles more Lively with a bit of Animation while we hover on the tiles. Adding borders to different tiles as per the color chosen for the dashboard will make it more attractive and lively to work on.

    Thanks

  19. When creating a virtual network gateway -- put a red asterisk next to the policy or routed button.

    put a red asterisk next to the policy or routed button on the initial configuration of the virtual network gateway creation.

    It is easy to overlook the option to choose which option to choose before selecting the sku. Once the sku was chosen. It is too late to fix.

  20. To modify the text of the anchored items in the panel

    Some items of the panel don't show any name or description when you anchor them. It may be interesting to change it.
