    • Ability to open multiple panes when troubleshooting

      When troubleshooting, I want to keep each pane open that I bring up rather than drilling down and losing original search pane.
      Typically when I troubleshoot, I have multiple panes open, for example on a server I may have the event log, perf mon and Bing search open. When I use AOI, I may find a useful bit of info but then lose that screen when I look for something else.
      I would like the ability to resize and snap upto 4 different search screens on one page or be able to snap a view into another browser window. This…

      • Keep a history of navigation in addition to search queries

        In addition to search query history keep the navigation history , like which IP has been opened, what drill down has been used to user can easily go few steps back in his investigation and take another path.

        • Chrome and Edge in OMS

          Best Regards

          • Make font sizes MUCH larger

            Default font size is EXTREMELY TINY on the getting started page. MacOS/Chrome/1600x900. It looks so bad, you've surely not tested it on this combination or you would be embarrassed. It's almost unusable.

            • Adding a Refresh control to each dashboard view

              There should be a refresh button added to the OM+S main dashboard and various drill down pages allowing users to refresh their tiles/blades to display updated information vs using F5 to refresh the entire browser session. OM+S is already browser intensive, using a control built into the page would accomplish a smoother experience.

              • Change the link on the top left corner to take you to the "Home" location of Azure Op Insights rather than to the sales page on azure.com

                Change the link on "Microsoft Azure Operational Insights" to jump to the home for Op Insights rather than to the azure.com sales web page. This is not what users expect when clicking on "Bread Crumbs"

                  The little square icon left of what looks like breadcrumbs does take you to ‘home’ today. We understand this is not intuitive – unfortunately there are some technical intricacies with the underlying Azure portal framework code that don’t make this straightforward to change – see also this related idea http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519263-moving-across-pages-needs-to-be-seamless-clickable

                  • Missing scrollbars (bug)

                    On some OMS screens scrollbars are missing from the page (though there are scrollbars on the lists). I need to resize my screen to be able to navigate properly.
                    Specifically if I go to Settings, Alerts then the list will display up to 11 items (at default 100%). I can use the scrollbar on the list but this will not show the entries at the end of the list. I can go full page but the same problem occurs (depending on number of entries). Screenshots attached: scrollbars1 - shows full screen browser at 100%, last items in list are not…

                    • OMS Dashboard Does Not Render Properly in Safari

                      OMS works properly in IE and in Chrome, but not in Safari on a Mac. There are large spaces between the columns so you wind up having to scroll over a lot to see the next column.

                      • Enable CDN Compression

                        Azure CDN now supports enabling data compression. Compressing https://az416426.vo.msecnd.net/scripts/a/ai.0.js could save 41.9KiB (76% reduction)

                        Is it possible to enable compression on that CDN? It's a no brainer.

                        Thanks,
                        -guy

                        • OMS title bar should be shorter

                          I found myself editing the height for the HTML bar to get more central space.

                          Why do we need all that empty space for just a few icons on top?

                          • Possible bug - Intelligence pack "drilldown links" does not work in Firefox

                            With the latest Firefox (36.0.4) it seems "drilldown links" in Intelligence Packs don't work. I open for example the Log Management one, click on the Event facet (to see all the event highlighted by the IP) and it jumps me to the Search Data Explorer start page, without showing the actual results. In IE it works properly, it shows the query results. It is true for other IPs as well.

                              • Weird-Poor Behaviour

                                Very recently ~1 week the portal has been performing really poorly in Edge and most other browsers. This has been with myself and a friend of mine. Tried within a VM and other methods but pages are loading really badly and sometimes I end up with what I've attached.

                                  The Portal Regularly does NOT display when using the Edge browser especially after the computer has been to sleep recently. The portal normally does not work again until I completely reboot the computer. If I go into Chrome or some other browser it works fine.
