A little unclear there so let me repost :-)
If you have a compute item with 3 year reservation, firstly, the monthly "effective cost" is shown, not the actual amount required to pay - ie total amount due. The calculator needs to be clearer (like the AWS one).
Secondly, if you export to spreadsheet, under "Annual payment" the number it produces is the 36 month cost divided into annual payments, even though the web page says the entire amount is due upfront for the reserved instance? Again this is unclear too.
Also, please make the calculator stop switching the VM type when going between PAYG/1y/3y reservations. It's a recipe for disaster.
Thank you for the feedback! We are open and interested to get customer feedback on this request. If this is something you would like to see, please vote on this submission. Additionally, we’d like to ask for more detail on why you would like to see 2008 R2 support: are you looking to use AFS to migrate from 2008 R2 to a more recent OS? Or perhaps do you plan to use 2008 R2 passed the Extended Support deadline for 2008 R2 (2020-01-14)?

We have GA’d dynamic groups for Azure, and dynamic groups (dynamic saved searches) for non-Azure machines is in public preview.
We just wrapped up private preview of this feature. The proposed plan is to be in Public preview H2 2019.
