Thanks for the feedback. We are constantly working will all the partner teams to build tiles that expose the right information and actions. We will take this feedback into consideration.
Tiles could show useful information.
- Billing tile: show the total budget, or select which subscription you're showing. I have 4 subscriptions and only the old one is showing in the tile.
- VM tile: show the activity of the VM, allowing to identify idle VM and nuk'em. When the tile is large, show more info to identify VM that are under/overpowered, maybe with a color scheme: yellow when reaching 50% capacity etc...
- Marketplace, when the tile is large, add a pull down menu of my own images/favorite images I can rapidly VM-launch.
The new portal requires side scrolling to display the new bits of data as you're drilling down.
Let's say you want to add a new VM while keeping a list of existing VMS, you know, to know what to call your added VM. In the old portal you could because it's so compact. The new one hogs the entire page and requires extra lateral scrolling.
Each column is super large and the layout of each column is less compact than the old one, so you end up with less information on-screen which requires... more scrolling.
Also the neat things about columns in the old portal is they'd compact themselves when you're dealing with the next column, so the list of VM, as you access each one individually, a list of the other VM would neatly compact itself to the left, without superfluous information.

Resources can be used by multiple services, and now with the new grouping system, getting visibility over our infrastructure is more difficult.
A graph showing how each part is connected would be a huge help.
