    • Add JSON formatting to the formatting of Queue storage

      It would be fantastic if the Queue Storage could display the content of the message in JSON format.

      • Add download link for publish settings file in add subscription file. Same as you have implemented in the form you ask new users to fill out

        Add download link for publish settings file in the "Add subscription file". Same as one of the url 's you have implemented in the form new users of the Azure Management studio have to fill out before first time use.( It can be time consuming to find it in the azure portal).

          • Support jagged schemas for tables in LINQ queries

            It appears that the schema for querying a table using LINQ is determined by the first returned row from table. However Azure table storage does actually support jagged tables. Support for either querying across the entire schema of the table rows, or at a minimum the schema of the selected row would be superior.

              • Provide Resource Groups Management

                It would be great and a big plus for Azure Management Studio if Resource Groups management would be a top-level functionality (rather than hidden away or not available at all in some services' extended properties).

                What the old -and- new Azure Management portals by Microsoft lack is proper management:
                - creation, editing, deletion of groups as well as
                - adding, and removing as well as moving services from and to resource groups

                If this was available as a top level functionality (e.g. like 'Affinity Groups') an I could also create new resource groups there, list included services and drag-n-drop as…

                  • Ability to Configure Diagnostic Log

                    Would like the ability to configure diagnostic logs within Azure Management studio. Specifically the storage account, trace logging level, and other items as well.

                    This functionality exists within Visual Studio 2013 under "Server Explorer" by right clicking on a Cloud Service role, and selecting "Update Diagnostics".

                    It would be niice to be able to do this within Azure Management Studio, as I find VS 2013 azure management features slow & buggy.

                    • Keyboard shortcut to execute query

                      Give me a keyboard shortcut to execute a query I just typed in for table storage. I don't want to have to go click the button with the red exclamation mark.

                        • Rearrange order of subscriptions

                          After I import my subscriptions, I want to be able to rearrange their order in the side bar.

                          So I have a Connection Group, which is some Subscriptions, and I can't change their order. They are stuck in the order in which they're imported.

                            I often use the tool to migrate data from environments, so when uploading the csv file to a new storage table, I have the previouse download still in the completed list. Since you have the count in the in progress view, please also add it to the completede list. That way I know what the upload is supposed to reach to be complete

                            • Save Service Bus message body to file

                              The body of my brokered messages contain binary (gzipped) data. It would be greate if I could "Save to file..." instead of "Copy..." the message body. I tried copying the binary data and pasting in a hex editor but I didn't succeed. I don't know if I can post a message directly from a file, but it would be great to have that option too.

                              Regards
