  1. 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.

  2. Stop showing settings on every item opened

    Currently when I open anything in the portal that has a "Settings" menu as well, the settings menu opens up automatically. It's a pain and I don't want to see it on everything I open - at least give us an option to choose to turn that behavior off rather than making it the default.

  3. Please engage some good designers to design the site. The new Portal is at best "Confusing".

    Please engage some good designers to design the site. The new Portal is at best "Confusing".
    More so with LiveId accounts that are used in multiple subscriptions.
    You will need good designers and information architects to sit through multiple sessions to come up with a suitable and clean ui flow. I used to think that Canonicals Jujucharms https://demo.jujucharms.com/ did a good job of it .. not so much now .. It is a hard problem to represent dense actionable information in a limited screen real estate.

  5. count on search results

    After a search is made and results are displayed in grid a count of found results would be useful when you search for resources with a prefix.
    Or a column , Count.

  6. 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.

  7. blades minimize automatically

    when creating new resources I find the 'new resource selector' and then the create blades are in the way once I have selected the type of resource and determined to create it.
    I always find myself minimizing those two places over and over again to see the resource group or other previous blade for names and to help me fill out the fields more accurately.
    in the screenshot I have the 2 I mention minimized.
    It would be so helpful to automatically minimize certain blades as you traverse to the next blade.

  8. More prominently feature service types in addition to icons

    Icons are used throughout, which is great. We all love icons. What I recommend, however, is that the icons are used WITH accompanying text somehow. For example, in the "all resources" blade, I click on a server and it opens the corresponding blade and shrinks the "all resources" blade so the "Type" column disappears. In the now-shrinked "All resources" blade, I have no idea which service is of which type unless I memorize all the similar-looking icons. I have special trouble with a SQL server vs a SQL database. Which is which? Nobody knows.

  9. Ability to view a list of resources grouped by columns values

    When browsing resources in "All Resources" or by any other resource types it would be great to have the ability to view the list of resources grouped by columns values. It can be only one group, no need to have complex multi-field grouping here.

    A typical scenario would be this one: I have already filtered 4 subscriptions out of 30+ and I want to group resources by subscription, resource group or even resource type.

  11. Please please get rid of the leftmost menu and replace it with the menu that appears after clicking Browse

    I hate clicking Browse to see the full list of services. It's an extra click for me. Put the full list on the leftmost panel and keep the filter textbox. Or merge the two menus together keeping the current leftmost panel at the top and full list at the bottom so users can still see most commonly used services. This is driving me nuts.

  12. 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!

  13. Need better and easier capability to delete (clean up) a set of related resources

    I have been demo'ing azure quite regularly to customers and while it is really simple to provision something like a vm, it is painful to delete afterwards as there are a number of additional components created like resource groups and storage accounts etc that all need to be deleted manually.

  14. Offer shortcuts (Ctrl + S to save)

    I use a lot the keyboard with tabs and shortcuts and it will be productive to have a Save shortcut instead of going to the save button

  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.

  17. Link resources were easier to add and remove on the old portal.

    Link resources (like mysql databases) were easier to add and remove on the old portal.

  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. after showing notifications, view should not return to homepage

    When I click a notification, the notification blade is showed and when I close it, the context where I was working is lost.
    Ex: in VM (classic) blade I decide to start a VM, the notification shows me an error, I click the notification, read the error message and then close the notification blade. At this point the home page is shown instead of the blades I had previously. Would it be possible to show the notification blade on the right? or perhaps, next to the blade I'm currently using?

  20. 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 ?
