  1. Do more in place and use the full screen - avoid horizontal scrolling

    Simplify the portal by doing more in place. The horizontal scrolling seems to cause too many, unnecessary clicks, which makes the UI to jump around a lot and quickly becomes overwhelming with so much on the screen at once. It's hard to focus on what's most important and, when there's only one blade, half the screen is empty with critical messages all the way on the other side. Make better use of screen real estate and stop moving things around so much. It's distracting. I love the portal, but all the movement gets in the way. Let us focus on…

  2. Make the portal(s) tabbed browsing friendly

    The new portal while shiny and new, and metro, and shiny, can be a bit of a beautiful annoyance at times. My current annoyance is that navigating between two related, but not the same entities is frustrating. In a tabbed browsing approach, this is a single click on the correct tab in my browser. In the new portal, this is a bunch of clicks depending on the level of shared hierarchy. Neither right clicking / middle clicking work to allow me to open a view in a new window. Please consider the target users of this portal (they're going to…

  3. Search, sort and filter option needed. Much like Excel spreadsheet style auto filtering

    I see hundreds of resources when click on all resources. Need ability to auto filter on type and the sort on various columns

    We have done a lot of improvement on sorting and filtering aspect of “All resources” and tried to add most common filters on UI.

    Are there any specifics you are looking for where we can Improve more on Sorting\Filtering on All resources?

    Thanks,

  4. The selected directory is lost all the time.

    The selected directory is lost all the time.

    In half a dozen scenarios, the selected directory is lost, causing all sorts of trouble throughout the portal.
    1. When you timeout and click "reload".
    2. When the portal opens a new tab to get you into the SCM portal. This occurs from multiple places when configuring an Azure WebSite.
    3. When you ctrl-click a link to open something in a new tab to have two copies of the portal open.
    4. When you open a second copy of the portal by copy/pasting the URL.
    5. A few more scenarios I've found…

  5. Search should suggest related areas if no direct match

    Firstly, IT Pro's don't think of "Recovery Services" they think of backup. So firstly, I think you should use industry terminology rather than "Microsoft speak".
    Secondly, if I type in "backup", can search suggest related areas like "Did you mean Recovery Services?" or "Best Match: Recovery Services"
