  1. Add a "what is Azure?" button.

    I don't even know what Azure is. Just happened to find the link looking for virtual machine information and logged in with my Microsoft account. Nothing here describes what Azure is or does, or I can't find it.
    So, add some "about statement" or "quick start guide" under the question mark button.

  7. 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.

  8. Provide Screen Resolution 1024 x 768

    Does not work well at 1024x768.

    I'm a developer and this is my standard Customer resolution to provide readable screens.

  9. 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?

  10. Make button positions on blades consistent (put them all at the top)

    Most blades have their action buttons in the blue area at the top, but many blades also have "Ok" buttons at the bottom. This is a pain in the keester to have to go back and forth getting thrown. Even many "Save" buttons are in the blue area at the top of the blade. Just put all buttons at the top ... it would make using the portal much faster.

  11. 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 ?

  12. Please provide additional columns for the "All Resources" View

    I'd like to see the following columns:
    1. Pricing Tier
    2. Current Billing - how much the service has incurred to date
    3. Status - running, stopped, etc.
    4. Clients - number of latest active clients

    Other improvements:


    • Provide a "short name" or alias for the subscription name.

    • Be able to sort the services in the "All Resources" view - sort by name, service started date, cost, # clients, etc.

    • Use icons to indicate service health and cost

  13. Display VM status during it's creating

    Currently, I create VM in new portal (Ibiza) is only view "Creating VM" status, can't know VM status changes during creation process. I need to view status from "Browse" and view virtual machine to get. So I recommend display deployment status in VM creation process to help me to confirm VM status quickly.

  14. Translations to nl-NL are inconsistent (and wrong)

    (see attachments) In the 'virtual machines' blade, the actions in the top bar are all verbs, except for 'Start'. In nl-NL this should be 'Starten'.
    Maybe 'Opnieuw starten' should be 'Opnieuw opstarten', see the remarks below.

    In attachment '1' the right-click options for a new (resource model) virtual machine are shown. The option 'Beginnen' should be 'Starten', or at least be the same as in the top bar. The second remark is that here 'Opnieuw opstarten' is used in favor of 'Opnieuw starten'.

    In attachment '2' the right-click options for a classic virtual machine are shown. The option 'Starten' its…

  15. How do I

    Include an option such "How do I?" for any portal user to quickly ask a question or search for a task he wants to achieve or discover. Search and documentation is great but ability to know "How do I" do something will be great for newbies who are getting "Azure Comfortable".

  16. Incorrect links on the Home > Connections page

    Hyperlinks on the Connections landing page are incorrect.

    "Learn more about ExpressRoute" -> points to the VPN gateway page
    "Learn more about VPN Gateway" -> points to the ExpressRoute page

  17. Provisioning server sets first NIC as primary NIC

    Hi -
    I run into limitation if I want to add a NIC to an existing VM. The error code is that I have to assign a primary NIC before adding a secondary. My wish is that upon creation of VM via portal that the NIC associated with the vm is automatically created as primary. That way it is much easier to add additional NICs later. Thank you - Asger

  18. Make the pricing calculator better

    Having the 'free' tier is great, but there should be an option to turn off the 'free' tier in the pricing calculator so we can get actual figures.

    Also, how are we supposed to know the 'memory size'? is there any tooling in azure that can say what memory a function uses, per execution?

    Which leads me onto the next thing, it would be useful to emit cost statistics on a per execution basis like documentDb does with its RU.

  19. UI does not update on template creation

    When creating a template that creates a new resource group and a number of resources, the UI does not update to include all the resources in the group. The deployment status does not update with the steps completed or in-process. Hitting refresh on the blade of the resource group does show the created resources, not sure why it does not update on its own, which is the expected behavior. The deployment status is not udpdated until the browser itself is refreshed. The expected behavior is to update automatically or at least when the refresh button on the resource group blade…
