  1. Ability to drill down the bar graphs in Overcast for more information

    On the Overview page (and any page with a bar chart), it'd be convenient to be able to click a bar in the chart for a given month and that takes you to a report of all the resources for that month.

  2. Improve the submission of feedback in-app

    There’s no obvious way to send feedback via the Overcast GUI except for initiating a “Conversation” with the “Intercom” tool, which I don’t want to use.

  3. Visibility on the cost variation between 2 consecutive months

    Ability to compare any two consecutive months. That would be convenient to understand the variance/variation between them, instead of the limitation of only comparing variance for last 30 days.

  4. Bulk Setup of Cost Hubs (CSV import or Resource Group Tag Read)

    Currently the CostHub setup process is very manual, a CSV import would allow swift setup, even better would be if Overcast could read tags on Resource Groups to populate costhubs

  6. Ability to integrate with AWS and Azure out of the box

  9. Offer an experience with the expiration of tagged resources

    From time to time we need to create ephemeral resources (Proof of concepts, training, etc.)

    Allow me to track/receive notification about resources/resource groups that have an expiry tag ("expiresOn" in our case) with a date < today.

  10. Identify VMs that are not enabled for Hybrid Usage Benefits (HUB)

    VMs can take advantage of existing on premises licences for Windows and SQL to make the Azure spend lower. A recommendation to enable HUB would save some money (assuming appropriate licences are held by the Azure user)

  14. Support Shared Services Subscriptions feature

    Support Shared Services Subscriptions feature.

    Currently we are developing some IP on Azure. We use a Shared Service Subscription as a CSP Direct provider.

    We tried to add this to Overcast. One of my colleagues who is admin tried to view it, but could not see any details of the subscription.

  17. Identify VMs configured for ASR replication in Recovery Vaults

    VMs that are deleted are not automatically deleted from ASR so are still costing money. A job to find and delete these would save cash.

  18. Identify orphaned backups in Recovery Vaults

    VMs often get deleted but are still configured for backups, a clean up of these backups often saves fairly big money.
