How can the Azure portal be improved?

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.

    It would be great if this could cycle dashboards in full screen mode also. It gives us a nice clean monitoring screen if the blades and other buttons are hidden.

    How can this still not have been implemented? Is this not how you are supposed to use the Azure Dashboard?
    I have been scratching my head for a month now trying to figure out how to achieve some sort of wallboard-dashboard using the built in tiles in Azure, but there just does not seem to be a way that does not involve a mouse/keyboard.

    Also when using Airtame or similar to display a dashboard then you offen don't have mouse and keyboard control. You can only insert a url. Therefore; in addition to fullscreen it your be great to also add some kind of "SAS Token" to the url allowing you to bypass the login screen and just show the dasboard in read only mode directly.

    Many other dashboard products do this. See for example: https://www.geckoboard.com/learn/tutorials/displaying-your-dashboard-on-a-large-screen/#.WrDGtOjwbZk

    We cycle through dashboards using the Chrome extension Rotisserie and that works fine.
    The chromeless url parameter would be very welcome.

    Another great related item would be to have a url option to load the dashboard into fullscreen (chromeless) mode - similar to how powerbi works.

    Yes this! We also have a dashboard up on our team wall and currently have to manually cycle through our dashboards. We'd absolutely love to be able to select which dashboards to auto-rotate through as well.

    With the arrival of multiple dashboards in the Azure Portal what we really need now is for them to auto scroll through them on a timer e,g, a slide show, very much like the deprecated Visual Studio Application Insights had in it.

    This would then allow us to display the dashboards on a TV screen in our IT department without the need to manually click through each dashboard.
