  1. Notification should persist across browser refresh.

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

    • Export to CSV function for list/table views in new portal

      Ideally all table/list views in the portal should be exportable to CSV. Other missing table/list features are more important (sorting/filtering) but exporting is very useful as well.

      • 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"

        • 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!

            • 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…

                We’ve added some custom configurable tiles such as; ‘markdown’ (allows custom markdown), ‘armData’ (will display data from a defined arm GET), and ‘armActions’ (creates a button which will create a user defined arm POST call)

                • Ability to see the behind-the-scenes calls (REST or PowerShell) for operations

                  It would be great if we could get the "code" for the operations we perform (either the REST call or the PowerShell call) that's happening behind the scenes in the portal.

                  • 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

                    • 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.

                      • Provide a download of the new Azure portal icons and logos for use in diagrams etc

                        I'd like to use the new Azure icons in a diagram but only the old classic portal icons are available for download. Please provide them in SVG format (at least).

                        • 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

                          • Portal page title should include unread notification count and/or use Web Notifications API

                            The title of the portal should include the number of unread notifications (much like a number of webmail sites do for new emails).
                            Furthermore, if your browser supports W3C Web Notifications ( http://www.w3.org/TR/notifications/ ) we should be using those too.

                            • 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.).
