  1. Allow for comments or notes on resources

    A text description on resources/things would be great for keeping track of what each resource/thing is.

  3. Azure Designer tool

    My Idea was to create a Azure Designer tool in the Azure portal which can enable Azure Engineers and Architects to design a Azure services as per customer requirements and convert them as a blue print or Archictect diagrams for customers or for implementations.

  5. Refresh button in each blade

    Provide a refresh button/option in each blade.
    Scenario i found this need: provisioning a SharePoint farm. In the process of Azure assets creation, when i look at the resource group blade, i need to hit F5 to see the process of different VMs, cloud services etc being created.

    Not high level priority but can be useful.

  6. Fullscreen Query String Option on Dashboards

    Allow a query string option for invoking full screen on a dashboard. This would be used to automate the display of full screen dashboards in a rotating manner.

    The current implementation of "Fullscreen" allows for a user to click a button to invoke full screen. However, in automation systems that rotate screens the option is lost and not easily invoked. Please add an additional option to automatically invoke via query string similar to Power BI and other services.

  7. Allow us to set the date format on the portal.

    Allow us to change the date format. Since not everybody in the world likes using US dates :)

  8. When selecting a location, how to save as DEFAULT.

    When creating a new VM, I have to choose my location each time - eg. I choose 'South-East Australia' everytime.

    It would be good to have this as a "Portal Setting"

  9. Notification should persist across browser refresh.

    Notifications disappear from the list of notification on page refresh it seems. I would prefer dismissing them explicitly.

  10. Consistent Status Column

    In the old Portal, there was a "status" column under "All Items". In the new Portal, "Browse > All Items" does not have one, nor an option to add it. If you drill down into specific areas (Virtual Machines, Storage Accounts, Cloud Services, etc.), some have a "status" column while others do not. It would be nice to have the "status" column show up consistently in all areas, and to have it in "Browse > All Items" to make it easier to see what's running and what's idle / stopped. Thank you!

  11. Create custom tiles

    Now we have the option to create custom dashboards with tiles organized by related resources or team, Allowing us to create CustomTiles to customize our dashboards will improve the dashboard experience.

    Our application use some administration pages to monitor application internal events like:
    Customer Registration, Customers Online, Notifications, etc.

    If we could provide a json file or fill a form with all configurations needed to render the tile like:
    Type: Standard(icon and name), Chart(donnut, bar, etc)
    Tile Title
    Icon: Icon Url
    DataSource: Url that return a series of data to fill a Chart or for example the number of connected…

  12. Customize color of metric graphs pinned to Dashboard

    We use multiple dashboards extensively on large walled displays for operational center-like monitoring of key diagnostics to visualize servers and services.

    The latest improvement to Azure Monitor and the metric graphs that are pinned to a dashboard are a great improvement, but the color-scheme of the chart lines and the legend of performance counters are now making harder to see key information.

    Please add support to customize the color of each series line in a chart and also to customize the text of the series in the legend to be more legible.

    Refer to the attached screenshot of a portion…

  13. Refresh button for Azure dashboard

    At present there is no way to refresh a table for eg. a table showing containers in a particular storage. I ran my script to add containers to a storage. Now I have to refresh the whole page to check is it was created or not. Same is the case with instances and most of the tables.

  15. Todo tile, to guide me though action needed

    Notification tells me about things that HAVE happened give me a place to tell me what I need TODO.

    - System generated for things like Credit Card expiring, Cert Expiring etc.
    - Allow users to add TODO from Each Blade - For example Reminder to scale down after Promo ends on 12/15

    Clicking on TODO should take them to where action can be performed

  17. Create a way to do custom reports for Azure Services Tiles

    We have to do many reports (daily, weekly) to send to other teams and customers.
    For example, we need to generate a report to show the capacity of all the Storage Accounts, also its availability etc ... Right now we have to go to each STA, filter by dates, capture a screenshot of those tiles, compose a Powerpoint and send it through mail.
    It would be great to have Azure to have a "reporting" module to compose custom reports instead of all this manual process.

  18. Friendly Alias Names

    Allow resources to have a friendly alias name inside the portal. Obviously it will not be used to access the resource, it will just make the portal easier to navigate. Also would only need to be unique to the one portal or subscription.

    I don't mind if my Database is called fdstrdfs but let me find it by Product SQL Server...etc

  19. Dashboard tile auto arrangements

    The locations of the tiles on the dashboard can easily become a mess. It would be great to have the same experience as in Windows 8 with the start screen (automatic tile arrangement, preview of the new tile arrangement when moving tiles, etc.).

  20. Support for paging on tiles

    Taking the Billing tile on the dashboard: the billing information is being automatically cycled between the subscriptions, but it would be good if the user could just cycle between them or pause the auto-cycling.
