  1. 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.

    • Fullscreen Query String Option on Dashboards

      Allow a query string option for invoking full screen on a dashboard. This would be used to automate the display of full screen dashboards in a rotating manner.

      The current implementation of "Fullscreen" allows for a user to click a button to invoke full screen. However, in automation systems that rotate screens the option is lost and not easily invoked. Please add an additional option to automatically invoke via query string similar to Power BI and other services.

      • Create custom tiles

        Now we have the option to create custom dashboards with tiles organized by related resources or team, Allowing us to create CustomTiles to customize our dashboards will improve the dashboard experience.

        Our application use some administration pages to monitor application internal events like:
        Customer Registration, Customers Online, Notifications, etc.

        If we could provide a json file or fill a form with all configurations needed to render the tile like:
        Type: Standard(icon and name), Chart(donnut, bar, etc)
        Tile Title
        Icon: Icon Url
        DataSource: Url that return a series of data to fill a Chart or for example the number of connected…

          We’ve added some custom configurable tiles such as; ‘markdown’ (allows custom markdown), ‘armData’ (will display data from a defined arm GET), and ‘armActions’ (creates a button which will create a user defined arm POST call)

        • Support setting default Dashboard and sorting of the dashboards

          Allow people to set the default Azure Portal dashboard and also provide sorting within the dashboard dropdown.

          • Refresh button for Azure dashboard

            At present there is no way to refresh a table for eg. a table showing containers in a particular storage. I ran my script to add containers to a storage. Now I have to refresh the whole page to check is it was created or not. Same is the case with instances and most of the tables.

            • Add more information to the tiles

              There's a lot of wasted space inside the tiles.
              For example, in a virtual machine tile, you could add the current public and local IP and the status (executing/stopped).

              • Customize color of metric graphs pinned to Dashboard

                We use multiple dashboards extensively on large walled displays for operational center-like monitoring of key diagnostics to visualize servers and services.

                The latest improvement to Azure Monitor and the metric graphs that are pinned to a dashboard are a great improvement, but the color-scheme of the chart lines and the legend of performance counters are now making harder to see key information.

                Please add support to customize the color of each series line in a chart and also to customize the text of the series in the legend to be more legible.

                • Pin to Dashboard - Allow selection of Dashboard when pinning tile

                  When pinning a tile to a dashboard, for example the Cosmos Db Throttled Request Metric from Cosmos Db Account via Resource Group. The tile is always pinned to the last dashboard that was created.
                  It would be great to click the Pin to Dashboard and then be able to choose which Dashboard to pin the tile to.
                  We have a number of dashboards, including one for each customer.

                    • Support for paging on tiles

                      Taking the Billing tile on the dashboard: the billing information is being automatically cycled between the subscriptions, but it would be good if the user could just cycle between them or pause the auto-cycling.

                      • Tie dashboards to user, not directory

                        I manage multiple subscriptions across directories. When I log into Azure I want to see, at a glance:
                        1) a dashboard where I can put production services from all directories I am part of, so I can see *all* systems' status info without opening multiple tabs
                        2) a dashboard where I can put dev/test service info from an MSDN subscription in our organization's directory, right next to production service info from our client's directory

                        • Dashboard tile auto arrangements

                          The locations of the tiles on the dashboard can easily become a mess. It would be great to have the same experience as in Windows 8 with the start screen (automatic tile arrangement, preview of the new tile arrangement when moving tiles, etc.).

                            Make names of the pinned items on Dashboard editable.
                            For examples I have pipelines section pinned from different data factories on dashboard it would be good if I can name them differently. In general it would be easy if I can rename components pinned on Dashboard.

                                It would be useful if we could assign a background color to tiles. This could be used in visualizing/categorizing services, customers or various deployment stages. Imagination really.

                                • Allow users to control Azure Portal Dashboards expiration time and make dashboards usable

                                  Dashboards with it's current session expiration timeout are pretty much useless to be user as office dashboards and status monitoring. Most of the time session expires too soon and Office TVs show a "session expired, please refresh" message. Putting the tab with a dashboard on a cyclic refresh (e.g. "refresh this tab every 20 seconds") is not an option at all - new portal loading speed is horrendous, and the tab is cycled out from a view faster than it manages to display any useful diagrams or alerts.

                                  This was not an issue in the past and came only in…

                                      For example up until very recently there were a number of tiles on the Web App blade that were extremely useful, such as the "Active Deployment" tile showing the status of a build. Being able to pin this tile from several different web apps to the dashboard and projecting the dashboard on the wall for the dev team to see was very useful. Now we have to wade through the blades of different apps to see what is happening with builds, preventing us seeing all that we need to at once.

                                      An example of a useful sysadmin tile is the…

                                      • Auto refreshing tiles

                                        Instead of having a button to refresh everything. It would be alot more useful if the tiles would just update with the latest info on its own.

                                        • Integrate Tile for PowerBI Reports \ Dashboards in Azure Dashboard

                                          Could the PowerBI Team and Azure Portal team collaborate and create a new Tile to support PBI and the embedded Web view on the Azure Dashboard. PBIs like ER Statistics ( https://github.com/tvuylsteke/azure-ea-powerbi/tree/master/Express%20Route%20Stats%20-%20V1 ) and others would be great to pin on a Azure Dashboard - There seems to be a limitation today with PBI push API embedded Web that prevents this from using in a Markdown Tile - ( https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/502f0922-1dca-4d94-9942-c3f073190a5c/power-bi-dashboard-on-azure-portal?forum=windowsazuremanagement )

                                          Is there thought on allowing PBI Tile on Azure Dashboard or integration with markdown Tile or a future tile being developed ?
