  1. A notes widget for the main dashboard would be nice

    Just an idea, not a major want, but it would be nice to have a notes widget to set reminders to do things.

  2. Dashboard: customize area with names

    Would help a great deal if I could create areas within one dashboard and apply a custom name to each area.
    Typically when I want to group VMs or Storages like Windows VM and Linux VM, Storage for Prod etc...

  3. STOP PROPERTY

    I am not sure if it exist, but would be nice to have a central point where the user can see which app/devices/resources are running and had the chance to stop them.

  5. Portal Menu Expanded

    I want ability to have the portal menu on the left expanded all the time (so I can see the words). The icons are too many to memorize what they are.

  7. Add LOCKS to the Column to the List

    Add the LOCKS field to the Column lists so I can add that view to my virtual machines view. I have 100 Virtual machines and there isn't a quick view I can use to see which VMs are protected and which VMs are not, I have to open each VM and look at locks, or I have to name each lock different so I can figure out which one is protected.

  10. Bring back simplicity of VM wizard menus

    The new portal is great for showing what's going on with our VMs, however, every time I want to configure it, it seems like the process is either x10 or x100 times harder.

    In the classic portal, setting up endpoints was easy. Now? No idea!

    As a software engineer who just wants VMs up and running in no time, the classical Azure portal made life easy. Please bring these configuration features back.

    I understand that server engineers will love the scripting part of it, but the vast majority of us don't fit into this speciality.

  11. Visual state (running/stopped) when a VM tile is 1x1

    It would be great if I could resize my VM tiles to 1x1, but still be able to check what VMs are running or stopped from there. Maybe changing the icon color to light gray when stoped, and blue when running

  15. More available layouts for tiles on the Dashboard

    Allow for a 1x2, 1x4, etc. tile setup. I cannot currently even get back to the original layout of the Resources tile.

  17. Enable a "Folder"-type tile

    We are an organization that creates a lot of webservices and storage accounts, and all. And it currently is a mess to navigate between all the webservices and their respective add-ons.
    Why should a webservice and one of its add-ons should be 2 separate tiles on the dashboard ? And to make navigation easier, why couldn't we create "Folders" in the dashboard to help organizing our numerous tiles ?

  18. Azure Service Bus Topic and Queue Dashboard

    It would be great to have Dashboard tiles that allowed for Grid data to be displayed like the "User Counter" tile in the out of the box dashboard.

    We have teams that would like to see the inbound number of messages on a Topic, the queue count and then the subscriber count. Something like the Queue and Topic counters and graphs. However on a Dashboard with the ability to choose which bits they see.

  19. Alert dashboard (i.e. 'all alerts') does not correctly show updated status. Refresh does not help either. :(

    This feels really a bit off - drilling into the individual rules shows the correct monitor condition and alert state, but the overview dashboard does not update correctly.

  20. Rename "Restore" in Azure SQL to something else

    The word "restore" and the explanation associated with the restore process, e.g. "SQL database is being restored in resource group *****." gives the incorrect notion that the existing SQL database's contents are being modified to a previous point in time, when really a copy is being created. Restore is not the correct word for this.
