I suggest you ....

Add a "Show PowerShell" button to each wizard/dialog in SharePoint Central Admin.

In SharePoint Central Administration, it's common knowledge that nearly everything you can do has a PowerShell counterpart. Thus, each wizard / dialog in SharePoint ought to show the equivalent PowerShell command / technique, so the administrator could save some steps in the future. It is also a handy way to learn how to use the cmdlets.

I have seen this capability in other Microsoft products, such as SQL Server Management Studio and the Windows 2012 Server Manager. SP 2016 could definitely benefit from this as well.

    Super awesome idea. Definitely would help me out with learning PowerShell being new to it.

    Great idea! Maybe even support this down to the site collection level, not just tenant level settings.

    Since Online PowerShell commands are limited compared to on-prem, even a text list of currently supported SPO cmdlets displayed in Central Admin would be nice.
