  3. Disable the ability to create free/trial subscription in Tenant with work or school account

    I want to disable the ability to create free/trial subscription in our Tenant with work or school account, because we don’t want to manage resources created by users in a free/trial subscription.

  5. Explore Microsoft Azure for Beginners

    New user can't add subscriptions without credit card information. There should be another option available to verify bots or actual person. There should be case when user doesn't want to expose credit card info or don't have credit card.

  7. Developer instance access

    As many have already posted, access to a developer platform without strict restrictions or having to use a credit card should be available.

    To make matters worse, my personal experience has been awful. When my 30 day trial was about to expire, I added my corporate card to continue it because I still had roughly $180 credit left and I wanted to preserve it. It stated I would be notified before my credit card was charged so I thought I was safe. My credit still displayed as available.

    I also added a developer subscription that added $25 a month (up…

  10. You should provide trial period for at least 6 months to explore Azure completely.

    You should provide trial subscription period for at least 6 months so that we could test everything may be with some limitations. But 30 days trial is not much time to explore Azure completely.

  12. Improve "Help+Support"

    There should be easy guided documents\videos for each of the functionality that Azure supports. It helps the user to use the tool easily and efficiently. This can be done by integrating the Microsoft supported tutorial sites like channel9, plural sites but for free atleast the documents. This makes the users more comfortable in using the Azure resources.

  13. Allow people to try and learn and not disable before they even start work and learn

    Last Friday I started to try things with Azure and I wanted to run a virtual machine and a Dynamics AX but when I left the office last Friday it was still preparing the machine.
    I planned to do connect to it from another VM I also added, to understand the architecture and learn much more about Azure.
    Just before I wanted to do a next step I got an email that my trial is cancelled because the charge limit.
    I haven’t even started !
    What can be done now ? I am a learner by practice and not by…

  14. Making Azure more developer friendly

    Other than the free option that only last a month, I would love a cheaper pricing tier for developers learning the console and testing apps. Then when they start getting a lot of traffic or start making money from they app they can be charged accordingly.

    Maybe you already have an option similar to that, if so, it needs to be more clear. The option that I was defaulted into was charging me 3$ a day.

  15. Ability to Pause during Free Trial period

    There should ability to pause resource usage billing at-least during free trial period to avoid billing consumption and free credit over run. During this pause period all functionality should be not accessible and in sleep mode if cannot be stopped completely.

    Requirements:
    1. During learning period it is not possible to use azure every day 24*7 as new developers need to spend some time to watch video tutorial and online help about azure. If 'Pause' feature added then it will help developers to learn azure without free credit over run during initial free trial.
    2. Another major reason is that…

  18. More permissions for Student started Subscription

    To entice students to use Azure, and get them familiar with the platform, the student subscription should have more rights. They should be able to create a storage account, even 5GB would be enough.
    Students are not able to mess around freely with the Azure platform which makes them unable to learn it.

  19. Azure For Students

    Let suppose I am a graduate student and want to learn Azure, Seeing this new Azure portal, It will be very difficult to start doing lab assignment. I thing students should also be given a free MSDN subscription wherein they can deploy their own environment. Even Microsoft can conduct an online event for this too.

  20. Make Azure more complicated and less user friendly.

    It seems some people are actually able to use Azure either from a trial or from paying for a subscription. It would be great if you could make Azure complicated enough and so user-unfriendly, that on one could ever possible use it. Just a suggestion though. Or, try moving some of your gadget programmers over to your documentation department. That way, we could teach ourselves in less than a life time.
