  1. Refresh button in each blade

    Provide a refresh button/option in each blade.
    Scenario i found this need: provisioning a SharePoint farm. In the process of Azure assets creation, when i look at the resource group blade, i need to hit F5 to see the process of different VMs, cloud services etc being created.

    Not high level priority but can be useful.

  2. Consistent Status Column

    In the old Portal, there was a "status" column under "All Items". In the new Portal, "Browse > All Items" does not have one, nor an option to add it. If you drill down into specific areas (Virtual Machines, Storage Accounts, Cloud Services, etc.), some have a "status" column while others do not. It would be nice to have the "status" column show up consistently in all areas, and to have it in "Browse > All Items" to make it easier to see what's running and what's idle / stopped. Thank you!

  3. Browse should only show everything I HAVE

    "Browse Everything" should only show everything I HAVE. there is no way to easily see everything I have deployed like I can in the current portal.

  4. wildcard filter

    I'd desperately love to use wildcards (* or %) when searching or filtering through Devices, Users, or other objects in the Azure portal for our tenant. We have thousands of computers, and there is limited filtering available based on string characters from the beginning of a machine or user name, but enabling use of wildcards in the search box would be incredibly helpful. (e.g. tons of machines named "BuildingRoom-123", "BuildingRoom-456", etc. could all be returned using "BuildingRoom-*" or "BuildingRoom-%" in the search box...

  5. Ability to add dividers in the menu

    When marking services as favorite, the left-hand menu can get crazy really fast. It would be nice to either customize the layout by being able to place custom dividers (thin horizontal lines, just like the favorites bar, but without a label, see attachment AzurePortal-Divider-CustomDivider.jpg)

    Or group them by service (see AzurePortal-Divider-PerService.jpg)

  6. Add virtual tabs to the portal

    Sometimes you want to have a few resources 'open' without having to open multiple actual browser tabs. Can we get some in-portal virtual tabs that could be spawned per resource?

  7. Make the "starred/shortcuts" left menu transferrable (via ARM templates or PowerShell?)

    I manage quite a few subscriptions, and I favour the same selection of portal features (in my "starred" left navigation bar) for most of them. A real pain-point is scrolling/scanning up and down that "starred/shortcut" menu for the icon I need.

    I'd like to be able to script the menu and transfer it to my other subscription/directory login sessions.

    I understand why each should be separate, but I'd like to be able to copy the selection and order of items to other logins. It would also be a big bonus if I can offer the template to a customer, once…

  8. Auto-sort Azure Favorites

    enable auto-sort (alphabetically) the list of items created in my favorites. Manual sort is not useful when you have many favorites created on many directories.

  10. 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.

  11. Please please get rid of the leftmost menu and replace it with the menu that appears after clicking Browse

    I hate clicking Browse to see the full list of services. It's an extra click for me. Put the full list on the leftmost panel and keep the filter textbox. Or merge the two menus together keeping the current leftmost panel at the top and full list at the bottom so users can still see most commonly used services. This is driving me nuts.

  12. endless loop journeys

    Azure Portal continues on and on when you clicking on resources (endless loop journeys). Surely it should know that the blade to the left is the one it’s trying to open and just go there?
