  2. Send notifications to Resource admins to review their resources

    Scenario: I go through the reports/costhub and I notice a particular resource that I'd like to investigate further. I see the Resource Administrator is "John Doe." I'd like to see there be a feature to send notifications to that Resource Administrator to review those resources and either reply with a comment, approve/reject, or require justification.

  9. Reporting on new resources over a selectable time period

  12. Improve the authentication experience (when logging in from the digest)

    When you have multiple tenants, you get multiple digests. Thus, when you click on one of the links in the digest, you get a redirect to the login page of the tenant where you fill in your email address for that specific tenant and after that it is an SSO experience.

    It would be great however if you could code the username or tenant id in the link and redirect me to the Azure AD authentication endpoint for the specific tenant bypassing your “email entry page”.

  14. Ability to drill down the bar graphs 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.

  15. Ability to build CostHubs with lower-level elements

    The CostHub makes it easier to compare consecutive months, but you’re limited by the Resource Groups in it.

    It would be great if I could add lower level elements to CostHubs (say just storage accounts, vms, etc).

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  20. Ability to remove case-sensitivity of tags in the settings of Overcast

    We have issues with upper-case and lower-case letters in tags that should be the same. We'd like to configure in the settings of Overcast to not discriminate based on case-sensitivity. We'd like to have a flat list of tags in Overcast, but it's not the case currently because of that issue.
