How can the Azure portal be improved?

Allow users to control Azure Portal Dashboards expiration time and make dashboards usable

Dashboards with it's current session expiration timeout are pretty much useless to be user as office dashboards and status monitoring. Most of the time session expires too soon and Office TVs show a "session expired, please refresh" message. Putting the tab with a dashboard on a cyclic refresh (e.g. "refresh this tab every 20 seconds") is not an option at all - new portal loading speed is horrendous, and the tab is cycled out from a view faster than it manages to display any useful diagrams or alerts.

This was not an issue in the past and came only in some recent (last few months) Portal "improvements".

Would be nice if dashboard owner can control whether session expires or not for a given dashboard or Azure account. This would improve the experience with Azure Portal Dashboards and allow them to be displayed on office's TVs without an manual intervention to refresh another expired session.

    We have also this problem with our Dashboard where it should be refreshed manually!
    Before the update, everything was Ok by the monitoring dashbord!
