  1. Fix the Software Update Task Sequence (built-in TS patching during OSD)

    How is this still a problem? Ask any MVP and they all agree: the built-in task sequence for patching during OSD doesn't work. It doesn't survive double reboots, it has a upper patch limit before it crashes ... it's basically garbage. I don't mind making golden images in MDT, but I shouldn't _have_ to ... and yet I do. I makes SCCM feel less like a singular solution.

      I’m updating the status. For 1606 we’ve made some changes, listed below.
      As more are added we’ll update what Tech Preview/Release they appear in.

      Timeout scan is now configurable
      We added a new task sequence variable to allow a configurable timeout for scan. Variable name is SMSTSSoftwareUpdateScanTimeout, default is 30 minutes. Value is set in seconds so an hour is 60×60=3600

      Logging changes
      In the SMSTS.log we list the log files to check for updates download and evaluation.
      These are UpdateDeployment.log, UpdatesHandler.log, WUAHandler.log and WindowsUpdate.log

      New Option for full scan
      There’s a new checkbox added to the Install Updates step – ‘Evaluate software updates from cached scan results’
      If the checkbox is on we use cached results, if the checkbox is off we do a full scan
      Task Sequences that are upgraded will have this option checked on – this is parity with the existing behavior

      Power management changes…

      • Use SCCM to remote control multiple monitors

        When using SCCM to remote control multiple monitors; allow the ability to select only one monitor to be remote controlled; vs. the option now of only stretching.

          • SCCM updates: User Experience - Reboot notifications

            Here is the User experience for the update process as I understand it:

            1. System tray balloon appears saying 'software changes are required'

            2. System tray balloon appears saying 'downloading and installing software'

            3. System tray balloon appears saying 'Restart required: Recently installed updates require your machine to be restarted'

            4. *It is here I would like the larger temporary notification reboot window to appear but it doesn't.

            5. Permanent notification reboot window appears and stays on the screen

            I would like option 4 to be possible. Without this it seems quite easy for users to miss seeing the balloon…

            • Allow custom icons for Task Sequences and Packages/Programs in Software Center.

              Allow custom icons for Task Sequences and Packages/Programs in Software Center.

              Currently the icons are all a default icon, which can be confusing for end users if there are multiple deployed to a workstation.

              • Prompt users for reboot, but NEVER force it

                The reboot settings only allow for the user to postpone a reboot for up to 24 hours. Why can't we expand that time or just keep reminding them forever until they reboot themselves? The longer that they have been pending a reboot, remind (pester) them more frequently. Or auto reboot if nobody is logged on.

                • Force Reinstall of Application

                  Many customers want to be able to force a reinstallation of an application. this deployment should ignore all detection rules and just install the application again.
                  At the moment this is not possible.

                  • Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages

                    Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages, pretty much like it works for normal packages (applications). This would reduce the number of hardcoded Apply Driver Package in the task sequence.

                    • SCCM Report - Easy way to create Report & Dashboard

                      Not really easy to create some SCCM report or Dashboard if your're not a SQL DBA .. even with Report Builder.
                      Could be awesome to have a new tool where Reports or Dashbaord could be created easily whithout searching which SQL views I need ..ect ... Like some others concurrent application give.

                      • Option to uninstall an application when a user or device falls out of scope of the collection

                        This is a buggy, Would we like the option to have ' Uninstall Application when Resource falls out of scope of this collection' when an application is deployed to a collection, this would save us having to create 2 collections ( install and uninstall) and to deployments. This would save SO much time and reduce the complicity of application management.

                          • Ability to automatically install Windows 10 ADK releases (or rollback or apply hotfix) via Updates and Servicing.

                            The windows 10 adk has changed a few times since the original release of Windows 10, there have been two major releases and one hotfix to fix issues with the second release, as a consequence of that many people got jittery about upgrading to ADK 10 1511.

                            How are we going to deal with this in a good way, a really good way. Prior to this we didn't have to upgrade our boot images every 6 months or so.

                                • RBA on the Folder level

                                  Currently Administrators have the ability to set Role Based Access to Collections but we do not have the ability to block access to specific folders. Currently in my environment we have many different departmental administrators who need to manage only their machines and their collections. each time we add collections we then need to grant them access. if the Role Based Administration gave the ability to grant access on the folder level it would reduce the complexity for area's that have a setup similar to mine.

                                  I have attached a screenshot of how my setup looks.

                                    • Need WSUS Maintenance tasks

                                      There should be a few built in maintenance tasks to go through and complete all the maintenance tasks that are needed for WSUS. I find having to run through these steps every month to be quite tedious requiring a lot of change control each month to get the maintenance work completed for WSUS.

                                      Everything described in this article should be automatically done by CM: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configurationmgr/2016/01/26/the-complete-guide-to-microsoft-wsus-and-configuration-manager-sup-maintenance/

                                        • Implement function to remove Windows Updates from clients with Software Update Point

                                          With a standalone WSUS-Server deployed Windows Updates can be uninstalled/removed from clients. With SCCM SUP this is not possible,
                                          Implement a function to remove installed Windows Updates from clients.
