  1. Export and Import Favorites List

    We are working with many different Tenants. I would like to export and import my Favorites from a Tenant to another. I can imagine that that helps also other admins.

    And if possible you can store the favorites in the CSP Tenant, so that I don't need to export/import first for a CSP admin. If I a network admin, I need the same Favorites for that in each customer tenant.

  2. wildcard filter

    I'd desperately love to use wildcards (* or %) when searching or filtering through Devices, Users, or other objects in the Azure portal for our tenant. We have thousands of computers, and there is limited filtering available based on string characters from the beginning of a machine or user name, but enabling use of wildcards in the search box would be incredibly helpful. (e.g. tons of machines named "BuildingRoom-123", "BuildingRoom-456", etc. could all be returned using "BuildingRoom-*" or "BuildingRoom-%" in the search box...

  3. Ability to add dividers in the menu

    When marking services as favorite, the left-hand menu can get crazy really fast. It would be nice to either customize the layout by being able to place custom dividers (thin horizontal lines, just like the favorites bar, but without a label, see attachment AzurePortal-Divider-CustomDivider.jpg)

    Or group them by service (see AzurePortal-Divider-PerService.jpg)

  4. Auto-sort Azure Favorites

    enable auto-sort (alphabetically) the list of items created in my favorites. Manual sort is not useful when you have many favorites created on many directories.

  5. Add virtual tabs to the portal

    Sometimes you want to have a few resources 'open' without having to open multiple actual browser tabs. Can we get some in-portal virtual tabs that could be spawned per resource?

  6. Fix column width issues - disappearing columns

    It's great to be able to add all the column options, but instead of having the screen scroll to show them, they just aren't there unless you collapse the ones that are already shown; and when you drag a column width slider to shrink it by 2 pixels the whole column shrinks to nothing and is overtaken by the column to the right of it.

    I end up losing all my normal columns just because I'm trying to shrink them down a little bit and see the data I'm interested in.

    I don't get it. Is it just me this…

    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.

  9. Expand search features to include Computer Name field

    Expand the search features to include the Computer Name field.

    Virtual machine naming standards may change down the road causing a mismatch from the originally created Azure Virtual Machine name. Allowing for searches to include the option of Computer Name, will allow for quicker discovery.

  10. Missing horizontal scrollbar in "Virtual Machines" pane after adding multiple columns

    On the virtual machines pane in portal.azure.com, I had to edit the columns to show more attributes. That is when I realised that there is no horizontal scroll bar for me to review the columns. Please have this fixed on priority. Not having the horizontal scroll bar seriously limits to view multiple attributes.

  11. multiple instance search

    We need to have an option to search multiple instances at one point (comma seperated). This is often used by IaaS management

  12. AZ CLI command naming scheme to match AZ portal blades names/sub menu names. CLI and Portal users can be much more efficient.

    AZ CLI command naming scheme to match AZ portal blades names/sub menu names. CLI and Portal users can be much more efficient.

    For example if I'm on the Resource Group>Overview blade, I get information such as Sub.ID and a list of resources. In AZ CLI, if type the command of "AZ ResourceGroup Overview" I would get the same information.

  13. Portal UI Changes

    The Azure Portal Interface changes too often. It make it difficult to find things from one day to the next and is very frustrating. Need to be thoughtful about these changes and to reduce the churn so customers can get their work done.

  14. Programatically configure Azure Portal favorites

    When onboarding new users, I'd like to be able to set a default set of favorites in the portal for a particular user or group, ideally programatically.

    This would afford more control over the onboarding experience (we could remove things that are universally denied by policy, or introduce grades of user (novice and expert) and therefore be able to tailor the default setup accordingly.

  15. Overhall the UI and UX

    Azure is very difficult to use when you are not used to it - i.e. there is a high barrier to entry which should be a lot lower. I have noticed that once you actually figure out how to do stuff, it is very easy, but getting to that can take one days of effort.

    I am teaching this to high school students and have found that even professionals struggle when they are new to the product. I would suggest looking at the interface and perhaps commissioning independent tutorials as well. Simply cutting down on the available options and displaying…

  16. Searching All Services for "factory" doesn't show Data Factory

    Many services have good keywords available so that searching for services is intuitive. However, for Azure Data Factory, when I search for "factory" under All Services I don't get any results. Instead, I have to know to search for "factories". Please fix this. See attached image to show what I am talking about.

  19. Storage account services summary/filter

    It is difficult to find out a blob/table/queue that you have created when you have many storage accounts and don't remember the storage account name. I have to navigate to each storage account and check each of the services. Also there is no filter on a storage account services. It would be nice to have a filter for blob/queue/table/files on the dashboard.
    Also just displaying the summary of service that is created in that particular storage account would be helpful.

  20. Allow group member list to be alphabetically sorted

    When viewing the list of users in a group it looks like users are sorted by the order they where added to the group. Please add the ability for customized sorting, e.g. by username.
