  1. Azure Portal Templates should be renamed Azure Portal Template Library

    Azure Portal Templates should be renamed to Azure Portal Template Library (or something) so that Bing/Google searching can return information on it - Searching for Azure Templates yeilds way to many results!

  2. Visual representation of resource connectivity

    A visual/graphical summary of how the different components of a solution, Compute, storage, networking etc fit together in a resource pool would help to visualize quickly how interaction of resources are configured.

  3. Allow adding properties to the main blade of each resource

    In the current portal there is a lot of really useful information on the "Dashboard" view on the right hand side. These are now buried under Properties in the Settings blade. Please provide a way for me to embed these values into the main blade of a resource.

    Preferably I'd be able to define what a website blade looks like for me once and then all websites would use that template. So I could add the properties one time and all would show it. I use websites as an example, but would love to have it for all resources.

  5. Engagement and Social Profiling

    Would be good to see some gamification statistic analysis in the site reporting tools. And possibly an SDK for app developers to play with.

    Achievers, Explorers, Killers, Socializers

    Being able to determine a profile for each of my users, and tailoring the UI to suite their needs would be amazing.

    Being able to get statistics on breakdowns on social types, and drill down on any give user to view their profile in a gamification context.

  6. Tags (name or value) should not allow leading or trailing white space

    I am unable to think of a use case where having leading or trailing white space on a tag name (or value for that matter) adds value to the feature, and most other tools already strip spaces on tags. Additionally it causes issues with being able to retrieve tags because the powershell command to retrieve tags DOES trim the white space. Furthermore these display differently in the portal and spotting the space is not intuitive if you don't know that it is there, until you notice you have multiple tags with the "same" value.

    Example: "Environment" as a tag name…

  7. 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.

  8. 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)

  9. 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?

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. [Translation feedback] meaning between "purge" and "delete" on Azure CDN in Japanese is confusing

    In Japanese portal, meaning between "purge" and "delete" on Azure CDN is confusing.
    "purge" is displayed as "消去", which means "erase" in Japanese and is for being used when a user wants to clear caches left on edge-nodes.

    "delete" is displayed as "削除", which means "remove", "delete" in Japanese, which is for deleting Azure CDN resource itself.

    To users, it is confusing and might mistakenly execute "remove" when a user wants to purge caches on edge-nodes.

    I'd like to change the name of purge to a little bit more appropriate title (e.g., "パージ" or "キャッシュクリア")

  14. 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.

  15. Azure Portal Templates need Versioning, Releases and Deprecation flags

    Azure Portal Templates need versioning for testing. Having a "network" template with a label of "released" or "published" would allow editing of a template while still being able to use it in production.

    You should also be able to deploy a template using "version 1.0" and flag an older version as "deprecated"

  18. Make the "starred/shortcuts" left menu transferrable (via ARM templates or PowerShell?)

    I manage quite a few subscriptions, and I favour the same selection of portal features (in my "starred" left navigation bar) for most of them. A real pain-point is scrolling/scanning up and down that "starred/shortcut" menu for the icon I need.

    I'd like to be able to script the menu and transfer it to my other subscription/directory login sessions.

    I understand why each should be separate, but I'd like to be able to copy the selection and order of items to other logins. It would also be a big bonus if I can offer the template to a customer, once…

  20. Highlight status texts

    "Running" "Stopped". those words are not easily acknowledged.
    Please give color to "stopped" to red or something different from Running status.
