  1. Azure should have a option to rename the "ResourceGroup"

    Azure should have a option to rename the "ResourceGroup". That would be easier for us to manage the resources

  2. Allow again to use of the mouse to drag panels

    A few months ago the panels could be moved by dragging the Mouse horizontally. Now this is not possible with any browser and to be able to move in a normal PC, you have to make use of the horizontal Scroll bar. This is very frustrating and very slow when using the portal daily

  3. Add ability to modify Tag tiles on dashboard.

    I'd like to propose an option to customize Tag tiles as now it is not very descriptive. The ability to change default layout of "key: value" with Single Name, and change the icon to one of the standard icons as: VM, NIC, etc.

  4. Shortcuts

    Shortcuts navigation tip: Some of the current shortcuts are very problematic. Example: Switch Tasks (A), Show Dashboard (D), etc. Whenever you open a Blade that has a focus on an input box (like adding or searching resources), you can't use a single character shortcuts. Perhaps those global ones should be used with a CTRL key?

    Looking forward to getting more feedback from you.

    Thanks,

  5. UI needs work

    Tiles and Blades are ok, but they have to work. Make sure I can arrange tiles where I want and adjust their size (windows phone or better yet like PowerBI). As blades open, I auto scroll to the right and have to manually scroll back, keep me centered. I know this is designed for touch, but really? How many sys admins sit at a touch screen monitor.

    Give me a mobile app to turn off VMs, especially important when hosting dev in Azure... unexpected usage can kill project deliverables when credit runs out!

  6. QRCode control

    I am trying to add a QRCode to an Ibiza blade and I am running into a lot of issues. I cannot use a third party library to dynamically create one because we are running in an iFrame and because it requires direct DOM manipulation or querying. There should be a built in control where you can pass in the text that should be encoded into the code.

  7. session timeout

    The Azure management portal does not have session time out settings. That means, when user has logged into management portal and leaves the browser page untouched (idle) even for few hours and then gets back in, the session still stays active (without getting logged out or asking the user to re-login) which is a security concern. Is this an existing bug ? If so please get it fixed.

  8. Start with the list like the old portal. I don't care about the tiles, I'm working not playing on a tablet

    I don't care about tiles. They're valid for some users, but not for developers who are trying to get work done.

    Case in point. I'm ready to pay you money for a domain name for my azure web site. I cannot do it! There is not tile the says "Domain Names". Of course, I can't find a simple thing like that in the list, but at least I can go down the list and see what my options are. In the tiles, nothing is lined up, and it looks like my 8 year old dropped a pile of playing cards.…

  9. In addition to search, add a long list of Quick Actions

    ties into search, but might be...

    VIP Swaps
    Table Explorer
    ACS
    Find Billing
    List Subscription ID's
    And whatever the other top 500 most common actions are.

    Take a hint from Control Panel search in Windows. There are a thousand options, let me find and get to them quick.

  10. Allow the left hand navigation menu to be pinned

    Currently the left hand navigation menu is automatically collapsed and accessible via the hamburger menu button.

    I appreciate that this is to maximize window real estate for the blades but personally I find it extremely frustrating and a break in my workflow for it to auto-collapse.

    Is it possible for this window to have a pin option ? So, people that like the auto-collapse behaviour retain it but people that want the menu to be in a permanently expanded state don't have to repeatedly click the hamburger.

    The Portal menu (left hand navigation menu) can be pinned open via a user customisation in the global settings.

    Click the ‘settings cog’ icon in the top right of portal and look for the ‘Choose your default mode for the portal menu’ option. Setting that to ‘docked’ will pin open the left menu.

  11. small notepad

    would be nice to have a small notepad on my dashboard so that I can keep notes or logs of activities.

    This should be possible using the Markdown tile. To get to the markdown tile, go to your dashboard and click ‘edit dashboard’. On the left of the screen you will see the Tile gallery, from there ensure the ‘Find tiles by’ is selected to General then you can drag and drop the tile labelled markdown on to your dashboard.

    You can configure that tile to display any markdown you desire, text, images, videos etc…

    Thanks.

  12. Revert Back to Old Azure Portal

    The new Azure Portal is terrible. Every time I try to use it I leave in frustration of NEVER being able to find what I'm looking for. In the original portal everything was very intuitive and easy to find. Unfortunately I can't even say it's one or two things that don't work. It's literally everything. The hidden menu's, the pop-outs, the tiles. All of it. What was the need for the re-design in the first place?

  13. change your portal ui to be more like Amazons

    Your new portal is clunky and buggy, the only browser it seems work with without crashing, is Chrome.

    We Admins like clean and simple interfaces, Amazon's portal is much easier to navigate and doesnt crash the browser

  18. when signed into account A, log out and sign in to account B, account A still shows in portal

    Although this shows as completed in another report, it is not.

    I have (gack!) 3 accounts -- a "Personal Microsoft Account" me@business.com, a "Workplace" Microsoft Account me@business.com and a "Personal Microsoft Account" me@hotmail.com.

    My MSDN Azure subscription was previously associated with me@hotmail.com. If I am logged in with my "Personal" me@business.com and visit the portal, it displays me@business.com. I then click log out and choose me@hotmail.com. the Portal reloads and displays me@business.com.

  19. Portal not working on Chrome 54 (latest)

    Chrome just self updated (Version 54.0.2840.71 m) and in the azure portal I see only the first row in every table

    If I inspect the HTML all rows are there but they are not visible (except the first one)

    I've tried clearing out the cache completely and starting fresh in an incognito session, to no avail

    Downloaded Chrome 53 and the issue disappeared. Problem is Chrome doesn't really allow downgrading: I need to run Chrome 53 as a standalone exe... a bit annoying

    I'm on Win10 latest
