    • Make it possible to automatically set users with permission to a sub as a contact

      Currently we set the permissions of a user to the specific subscriptions for which they are responsible.

      It would be nice if it were possible to have the persons with rights on specific subscriptions (excluding users with access to everything) to be set as a 'Contact' for the subscription which is displayed in the spending details window.

      • View cost data based on azure billing cycle vs 1st-end of month

        My azure billing cycle on a particular subscription is 23rd -24th of each month instead of 1st-end of each month. Very odd but that's Azure.

        Instead of viewing usage from 1st - whichever day of the month it is I'd like to see cost data for my subscriptions billing period.

        This should then match up with invoices that accounts/my md pays.

            • Make it possible to view which members have insight in which subscriptions

              In the 'Manage Team' view you can see the users and define which subscription they get to see.
              I would also like to see the list of subscriptions and see/define which users have view permissions on a particular subscription, so in other way define permissions the other way round.

              • Make it possible to auto-generate a specific (montly) report

                Our financial department will be receiving a monthly export grouped on cost center so they can easily bill the departments.
                It would be helpfull if we would be able to schedule a monthly report that would automatically be sent by email to a specified email address.

                • Allow to import custom data

                  It should be possible to import data files manually, via drag & drop or via recurrent download from a specific url. This makes it possible to integrate third party services into the Azure Costs services to managed all costs from a single pane of glass.

                  • Allow for grouping on multiple levels

                    When displaying the list grouped by subscriptions it would be helpfull if information on a lower level could also be grouped by another level (for example subscription) so things would like like :
                    Cost Center1
                    Subscription1
                    Services
                    Subscription2
                    Services
                    Cost Center2

                    • make it possible to put a tag on multiple entries

                      I would like to be able to add a tag to multiple entries within a subscription at once, for example put a 'TEST' tag on all entries within a test subscription.

                      • Allow to archive & merge EA contracts

                        During the renewal process around an EA contract it could happen that customers get a new EA number. Azure Costs should offer two the option to archive and merge an EA contract into a new one.

                        The archived EA will not synced any more and no daily e-mail reports will send out. The merged one contains all the historic information so a seamless spending management of the migrated subscriptions is possible.

                        • Alerts on cost deviations from a 'baseline'

                          Cost monitor is able to see the daily expenditure of a subscription, so it should be able to automatically calculate some kind of baseline. With this information it should be possible to send out an email alert if a subscription is spending a lot more money all of a sudden (because somebody left 10 big test VMs running for example).

                          • Dynamic Data Ranges

                            The dropdown box for selecting just a single month is not enough. It would be helpful to make the timeframe selector for costs analysis infinitely variable.

                              Currently when hovering over the different chart elements every subscription related item is highlighted but it's not possible to click the item. It would be very helpful when the click on an item opens up the correspondent subscription.

                                Currently the budget difference between one month to an other is not detailed enough in the chart. A very helpful extension could be rendering the difference as a percentage value between the bars in the chart.
