  1. Ability to view a list of resources grouped by columns values

    When browsing resources in "All Resources" or by any other resource types it would be great to have the ability to view the list of resources grouped by columns values. It can be only one group, no need to have complex multi-field grouping here.

    A typical scenario would be this one: I have already filtered 4 subscriptions out of 30+ and I want to group resources by subscription, resource group or even resource type.

  2. after showing notifications, view should not return to homepage

    When I click a notification, the notification blade is showed and when I close it, the context where I was working is lost.
    Ex: in VM (classic) blade I decide to start a VM, the notification shows me an error, I click the notification, read the error message and then close the notification blade. At this point the home page is shown instead of the blades I had previously. Would it be possible to show the notification blade on the right? or perhaps, next to the blade I'm currently using?

  3. Default Resource Group Selections

    In the Azure Portal, I have two subscriptions, each with a large number of resource groups, because I work for a large company. Out of about 30 resource groups, I personally only use three in my account most of the time. It would be really nice if I could have a default filter that only shows me resources from those certain resource groups. This would ideally work just like how we have the ability to filter for what subscriptions we want to view.

  6. Expand search features to include Computer Name field

    Expand the search features to include the Computer Name field.

    Virtual machine naming standards may change down the road causing a mismatch from the originally created Azure Virtual Machine name. Allowing for searches to include the option of Computer Name, will allow for quicker discovery.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  7. Missing horizontal scrollbar in "Virtual Machines" pane after adding multiple columns

    On the virtual machines pane in portal.azure.com, I had to edit the columns to show more attributes. That is when I realised that there is no horizontal scroll bar for me to review the columns. Please have this fixed on priority. Not having the horizontal scroll bar seriously limits to view multiple attributes.

  8. multiple instance search

    We need to have an option to search multiple instances at one point (comma seperated). This is often used by IaaS management

  9. AZ CLI command naming scheme to match AZ portal blades names/sub menu names. CLI and Portal users can be much more efficient.

    AZ CLI command naming scheme to match AZ portal blades names/sub menu names. CLI and Portal users can be much more efficient.

    For example if I'm on the Resource Group>Overview blade, I get information such as Sub.ID and a list of resources. In AZ CLI, if type the command of "AZ ResourceGroup Overview" I would get the same information.

  10. Portal UI Changes

    The Azure Portal Interface changes too often. It make it difficult to find things from one day to the next and is very frustrating. Need to be thoughtful about these changes and to reduce the churn so customers can get their work done.

  11. Fix column width issues - disappearing columns

    It's great to be able to add all the column options, but instead of having the screen scroll to show them, they just aren't there unless you collapse the ones that are already shown; and when you drag a column width slider to shrink it by 2 pixels the whole column shrinks to nothing and is overtaken by the column to the right of it.

    I end up losing all my normal columns just because I'm trying to shrink them down a little bit and see the data I'm interested in.

    I don't get it. Is it just me this…

  12. Overhall the UI and UX

    Azure is very difficult to use when you are not used to it - i.e. there is a high barrier to entry which should be a lot lower. I have noticed that once you actually figure out how to do stuff, it is very easy, but getting to that can take one days of effort.

    I am teaching this to high school students and have found that even professionals struggle when they are new to the product. I would suggest looking at the interface and perhaps commissioning independent tutorials as well. Simply cutting down on the available options and displaying…

  13. Searching All Services for "factory" doesn't show Data Factory

    Many services have good keywords available so that searching for services is intuitive. However, for Azure Data Factory, when I search for "factory" under All Services I don't get any results. Instead, I have to know to search for "factories". Please fix this. See attached image to show what I am talking about.

  15. Delete all Modern UI elements

    There comes a point wherein you must realize that UI/UX design is not something HTLM/JS was designed to handle.

    Build a stable platform, stop trying to lock people into an environment. Refactor your code, put your **** in System Center because consolidation.

  17. Quick Left menu filter

    It should be possible to have a quick search filter at the top of the page that only operates against the favorites in the left hand tab list. This saves the having to open "all Service" and filter in the entire list of services which can take some time

  19. add member in some role dialog must be done more human friendly.

    add member in some role dialog must be done more human friendly.

  20. Dropdowns should filterable by using the keyboard.

    Like most applications, dropdowns should select the most matching item when typing inside the open popup.

    Like:
    - I open (click) a drop down that allows me to choose an country.
    - I type "GER"
    - "Germany" should be selected
