How can we improve Microsoft Azure Lab Services?

Expand shutdown options...

Expand shutdown options...
1. Have option for day of week shutdown instead of just the time each day. This way the machine could be turned off Friday evenings.
2. Have an auto on option.
This way vm machines may be powered down for times of inactivity, but turn on prior to team starting work to use it.
3. Have the ability to delay the shutdown process by x time if the machine is currently in use.

Thanks for your feedback. I have added the first ask to the backlog. I will update this post for further updates on the ETA.
Currently we have auto start option for Lab VMs and we would be extending this functionality for compute VMs at some point. You can also provide an email address or webhook for receiving a shutdown notification that allows you to delay or skip the shutdown in case the your Lab VM is in use.
