Add exception details like call stack to Alert emails for quicker investigation
Alert emails for exceptions do not show exception message and call stack. It forces us to click on app insights link which is slow to open and we've to click through multiple links to get to call stacks which is slow and can take many minutes. This is productivity loss and sometimes we don't get to investigate all alerts due to the overhead involved because of lack of this feature
We have not had a chance to look into this due to higher priorities. Improving the performance of the UX, and reduction of clicks to failure details is a top priority and you should see updates on those sides.

I also faced with same problem. In alert mail no exception message is showing. There is only link to redirect to azure portal. How to show exception message in mail.
Totally agree about this. The exception detail is a must have.

any solution for the above post by rajag?
If there are concerns on the call stack, perhaps you can give an option while setting alerts to include call stacks (which can be turned off by default) and a user can turn that on for alert mails if they choose to. I would like details like: Exception.ToString() (message+call stack) (and #hits or just a list of all exceptions in a table), Alert name, appinsights name and any details associated with the exception, like if it was associated with a request, what was the request name, time
