      I also wish there was a way to use Azure Metrics, as a single pane of glass for quick performance glances at my PaaS applications, load balancers, DB and compute VMS, that would really make the WOW for customers. I know it's a tall order but it would be awesome.

            View, edit and search on Tag values on resources and resource groups.
            Would be awesome if search on tags would do 'suggestions' while typeing the tag.

              • Able to application insights data

                We can see metrics requests etc all in desktop portal, we should be able to see at least summary line like no of requests, exceptions, dependencies, traces etc. So that we can get a idea about service status.

                • Scale cloud services

                  Thanks for this app, will be useful. I'd like the ability to Scale Cloud Services from the app as well, eg in response to load alarms I receive.

                  • Favorites across directories

                    It would be great, if you could see resources marked as favorites across all directories, so you don't need to switch between the directories.

                    • Long press and/or force touch on ios

                      Long press and/or force touch on ios for resources should allow for quick actions like start/stop/connect on a vm.

                      • Create and resize VMs

                        Please create a mobile app to manage Azure objects even with limited functionality such as creating a VM, starting/stopping/rebooting a VM, re-sizing of VM and check service status of backups and other jobs.

                          We can add support for creating VMs, if that’s a big need. When do you find yourself needing to create a VM when away from a computer? That’ll help us make sure we optimize the experience for the specific cases.

                        • iOS Today widget

                          It'd be awesome to quickly see the health of my Favorite resources or, at a minimum, a list of shortcuts to jump to them. I could add this to my Today view and/or access it through Force Touch.

                          • Delete resources

                            Be able to delete individual resources or RGs with all resources in it. Add confirmation to delete via (configurable) pincode in app or fingerprint reader. Do that also for locked resources.

                            Convenient if you forgot to do so and save costs.

                              We can add support for deleting resources, if that’s important. Confirming via a secret would require additional work from the ARM team to support that flow. Fingerprint confirmation is easy enough, since that’d just be an added confirmation. Deleting locked resources is also do-able with an extra confirmation.

                                  You can open the OMS app from your Log Analytics workspaces today. We’ll work with the OMS team to integrate more features going forward. Let us know if there are specific scenarios you’d like to see most in the Azure app and/or in the separate OMS app.

                                  I've installed the app on a Dutch device which means the Azure App is now showing all content in Dutch. I would love an option to switch this to English.

                                        It would be able to see the total amount of storage consumed in a storage account. Ideally for blob, file, table, queue separately. A next step would be the ability to drill down to see folders, items, tables, etc. so we can check what is consuming the storage.

                                        • Activity log access

                                          So here I am, in the middle of nowhere but with Internet access on my mobile device but with no laptop or PC anywhere close, trying to answer my customer's question "Why can't we delete this RG". I'd love the ability to read the Activity Log feom the Azure app and honestly, I can hardly believe this isn't already implemented :-)

                                            Thank you for your feedback! You can check each resource’s Activity Log by tapping on the resource needed and then tapping on Activity Log. Once on Activity Log, you can use the button on the top right to filter All events, Errors, Warning, etc. You can also click on each Activity Log item to get more information.

                                            I will be reaching out to you shortly to get more info for your request.
