    • Improve Portal Performance

      The Azure Portal performance is horribly slow! The blades take too much time to load and keep moving back and forward while loading. Switching from one "Blade Flow" to another take about half a minute of loading time.

      I know there is already an issue similar to this in this User Voice, however someone from Microsoft marked the task as Completed. Clearly this is not completed or fixed. Our whole company is adopting Microsoft Azure and this is the number one complaint that I have. I can also help replicate it if need be, but I am sure it is…

        Hey,

        This is something we’re still actively working on. It has a been a big area of investment and it still is moving forward. We keep investing in performance, both from a client and server side perspective.

        We have a few things coming in the near future which should help address some of the initial UI performance issues. We’re also heavily engaged with all of our partners driving a broad effort to improve performance across the portal for all experiences.

        If you have any specific areas which are causing pain please feel free to reach out to me or comment and state if we can contact you, it would be great to understand the common pain points.

        Cheers,
        Sean.

      • Allow us to set the date format on the portal.

        Allow us to change the date format. Since not everybody in the world likes using US dates :)

        • Reduce the browser memory footprint, and elimnate the memory leaks.

          There seem to be some rather significant memory leaks in the Portal Dashboard. I've made the mistake of leaving it running overnight a few times, and the browser process working memory use, with the portal being the only browser tab open is often in excess of 1.5 GB. This is with no tiles open. In a few cases, I could not unlock the computer and had to reach across the network to kill the iexplore.exe process before I could gain local access.

          • add Clippy personal assistant to the Azure Portal

            A personal assistance would be great within the Azure Portal. Perhaps, clippy should be brought back and added to the Azure Portal to help us manage our cloud resources even easier. Maybe you could also rename Cortana to Clippy and give it a happier more helpful voice and personality as well.

            • Provide a download of the new Azure portal icons and logos for use in diagrams etc

              I'd like to use the new Azure icons in a diagram but only the old classic portal icons are available for download. Please provide them in SVG format (at least).

              • Edit backup policy

                I suggest that the interface allow the editing of backup policies avoiding the need to create new policy when the need to reset period and retention.

                • Custom info in Help

                  We are a large enterprise customer utilizing Azure and have some internal teams to help manage Azure as well as support agreements with Microsoft for support (including Azure and Azure development).

                  It would be a neat feature in the portal, in the Help area, to be able to customize some text for our own help. For example, I could see us customizing contact info for the EA admin(s), contact info for internal and external (MS) support, links to corporate SharePoint sites with Azure info and other project pages specific, governance/usage info, and billing info. I could see this information set…

                  • More color options for portal

                    I think it's great for me to switch colors between subscriptions as I have been added to some customer subscriptions so I can set different set of colors based on which subscription is being used.

                    Currently you offer only 4 different schemes - there should be a lot more plus an option to customize (if I want a pink theme, please let me have it - with unicorns :)) This would be a great visual differentiator between subscriptions as I need to switch between them all the time just to remind me what I'm working with (e.g. green = development,…

                    • Ability to customize Password Reset page

                      We use DirSync with AD Azure and ADFS to allow Work or School account logins for our users. We do not synchronize passwords, so the setting "Users enabled for password reset" is set to no.

                      When click on the "Can't access your account?" link at https://login.microsoftonline.com/ and specify their email address with us, they are taken to a page that is customized with our Logo, that tells the user their account cannot be reset and provides them with a link to "contact your administrator" -- this link generates an email to our staff.

                      We would like to customize this link,…

                        • Hide Email in Upper Right

                          To help comply with anti-doxxing patterns, it would be nice to have the option to hide email in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

                          I'm recording/streaming coding content and wish to show some Azure work without giving away my email. Options like "Name only", "Name and Email", or "Email only" would save me a lot of effort

                          • Simple dual factor authentication for Azure admin portal

                            We need Azure admin Portal dual factor authentication, not MFA for hosted apps and AD... Please don't post more instructions to the MFA setup process as this is not what we need. Dual factor authentication should be simple and the Azure portal needs to be hardened anyway. Please add simple dual factor authentication to Azure portal. Users could simply enable it, and receive authentication codes via text. This is a much needed feature.

                            • REST API for accessing Azure Pricing details

                              Currently, there is no option to access Azure Pricing information programmatically. Definitely, the Pricing Calculator UI is user friendly and is easy to use. However, if one needs to access the same information for creating custom reports or doing planning, then need to switch to the Pricing Calculator, do the math and update it manually in the in house built tools/reports. A best example is the AWS' Price List API (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/awsaccountbilling/latest/aboutv2/price-changes.html). Could we get a similar API for Azure Pricing?

                              • Azure storage explorer as a ubuntu package in apt repository

                                Hi,

                                I like Azure storage explorer as a tool, but new version notifications are really annoying and require that you will manually get and unpack new version of explorer.

                                It would be nice if it works like some of other azure tools like cli. They have nicely done ubuntu packages and can be updated with other system components.
                                For me, it would be even great to just put Azure Storage explorer in current binary form in deb package and push to ubuntu ppa repository.

                                Best regards,
                                Michal

                                • Subscription Management: Renaming the Reservation name.

                                  In Azure portal Subscription Management there is no way to rename the reservation name at the moment. Now there is only the option to delete the reservation and create a new one. This should a simple operation to do - there always happens typo's for example.

                                  • Please provide free trail with no credit card details.

                                    As a software developer, not comfortable to provide credit card details to try out a product. The entry itself block because of this reason. Please make it credit card free trail and also don't free the trail period within 30 days, which will not be enough to tryout a product for a professionals.
                                    May be you can calculated the trail period like the number days , the services are accessed instead of taking the day by adding 30 days to the subscription start date.

                                      We have multiple email accounts, So, i would like to know why not allowed to use same Credit card to create more that one azure account?

                                      Suggest to delete/move the records of users who completed 30 days trail and allow them again to create accounts, by which product will gain more popular and easy to use.

                                      • Change SMB port design to get around Comcast blocking port 445

                                        I had to cancel my plans to use Azure File storage due to my ISP (Comcast) blocking port 445 for SMB connectivity.
