    Hi!

    First, thank you for your feedback! Now, in order to contemplate the possibility to include this suggestion in our product roadmap, we’d like to get a little bit more information on it. What would you like to see in the presentation of billing costs to users? Could you give us more details about that.

    Thanks again for your help! We appreciate it.

    Cheers!

  3. 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. 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”.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
