  1. Allow for comments or notes on resources

    A text description on resources/things would be great for keeping track of what each resource/thing is.

  4. 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"

  5. Notification should persist across browser refresh.

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

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. Improve how Azure reports that operations ended

    During my work, I have noticed that many operations like updating, stopping or removing VMs are reported as completed before the requested changes have finished being applied. For example, if you remove a VM, the operation is reported as completed although disks need some extra time to be completely detached (and, thus, removed or reused).

    That was one example but there are others. All these kinds of I-have-not-actually-finished-doing-the-work situations often break scripts. Manually implementing sleep-and-check code blocks is not a clean and safe option at all, because this is something that the API shoud offer.

    Because all of this, we…

  10. Visual representation of resource connectivity

    A visual/graphical summary of how the different components of a solution, Compute, storage, networking etc fit together in a resource pool would help to visualize quickly how interaction of resources are configured.

  11. Enable QnA/Cognitive Services for natural language queries in portal

    Would be incredibly nice to see features such as the natural language Q&A approach in PowerBI, where you could infer the following insights (both in Portal as well as API/CLI avenues):

    1) Ask questions and receive suggestions or practices on how to deploy certain resources (e.g. "I'm looking to build a web app that's traffic/load balanced across multiple regions", and have suggestions and/or recommended ARM templates to complete the tasks)

    2) Ask questions on how resources are performing, and show KPIs for Azure Monitor, with suggestions for better performance

    3) Ask for details on cost analysis, with suggestions returned for…

  12. Tags inherented

    Please make it possible to inherent tags in Azure, for example the tags on a certain resource group automatically are inherented to all the resources in that resource group

  13. Ability to add generic links / url's to resources

    The ability to add generic URLs with a label to any resource from the portal or Powershell. This is useful for linking to configuration documents, debugging procedures, external inventory systems, etc.
