Allow pinned tile configuration to include label customization
Customization options for pinned tiles are limited to size. In order to help create a more task-drive friendly environment, allowing renaming of tiles would be very helpful. For instance rather that have 4 tiles say "Site Settings" for my sites, allow me to label them so I can distinguish them.
This would be awesome to have!

Any updates on this? I have to important Application Insights queries searches that just displays as "Search" and "1 Event" or "Search" and "17 Events". I can't tell which is which. That just seems crazy to me.

WTF? Less of the "this would be awesome" by the admins, and more "yes, we think that's a good idea, it's scheduled for release in XX months"

As a QA resource, I use the run history to track processing through the logic apps. A simple label or something added to the tile showing the logic app being run would be very helpful. Thanks

I have 2+ Logic App runs history in dashboard but name of Logic App is not displaying :(((
any update on this?

It is very frustrating that everything I pin to my dashboard has the exact same icon and title with no way to determine the pin is for without clicking on it and seeing where it takes you. I have to try to remember what each of my pins are for based solely on its location on my dashboard.
I hope now that 2+ years since it has been "under review" that it imminently will move quickly from "working on it" to "completed."
It doesn't look like this has been done yet. Is there any reason why Microsoft doesn't implement this? Certainly 4 years since the OP mentioned it is enough time. I'd be happy to write the code for you.

That's the reason that prevents me from really using the portal dashboards to its full extent. Currently the resources have rather long and technical names, thanks to their unique name constraint as well as custom business requirements. Displaying only a cut off portion of this name on a resource tile makes them practically useless for working with them. The ability to specify a custom name on a per-tile basis would be a huge improvement.
Would love it.
Frederick Level commented
when displaying VMs or storages o a dashboard the names are truncated if too long or name may not be meaningfull
It would help a great deal if I could apply a custom name to the tiles

Our admins don't like the dashboard I built them, because so many actions have the same icon and title. If I'm to get user adoption, label customization is a must.
Ian Bennett commented
Either this or make the default titles more meaningful. Dashboards only make sense to those who put them together and only then if you remember.
Surprised this has not gotten more votes but maybe its just a case of people not taking the portal seriously and relying on other monitoring tools.
A must have NOW. Same comment we have multiple app services across regions and it is difficult to understand what CPU Percentage past hour means. Need to be able to re-label it to custom value like "AppX CPU last hour North Europe"
We need this so badly. We have 5 app service plans and our portal customizations have a cpu/memory graph and an http queue length graph for each of these on the home page. 10 graphs and they all blur together because the titles are like 'CPU Percentage for the past hour'. I would love to be able to edit these to say 'AppServicePlan1 - CPU past hour' or something.

This is definitely a must! It would be extremely useful, especially for monitoring metrics...
Trevor Paesl commented
Yes, I WANT THIS NOW! Would be so helpful. It would also be nice to be able to add labels independent of the pinned tiles too (use to add more context to what is being added to the layout).
Christopher Walton commented
This is badly needed if the startboard is going to be useful
Chris K commented
Provide context on pinned items, for example my request tile, I don't know what site this is part of from my startboard.
