  2. ConfigMgr Web Console

    Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.

    The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.

    With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.

  3. Change color scheme in the console (including dark mode)

    When working with multiple customers and/or in migration scenarios (and also in lab- technical preview environments) it would be great to be able change the color scheme in the ConfigMgr console to clarify which environment the console belongs to.

  5. SCCM Console, save your prefered defaults.

    Can be frustrating, SCCM console, keeps resetting to default, every time you exit. The odd occasion it will retain settings. IE: folder options, and settings. Would be nice if we could save these to a personal default, so it retains settings.

  6. Delete multiple objects from console

    It would be very great and intuitive to be able to delete multiple apps \ deployment types\ deployments \ packages \ driver packages and even folders from Console without creating custom PowerShell scripts.
    Today when selecting multiple objects the delete option becomes greyed out.

  8. Make it easier to find relevant status messages in the console

    Status messages are amazingly helpful in the SCCM console, but difficult to get to. For instance, whoever wrote the status messages for Task Sequence deployments did an amazing job, yet I cannot access these without making a custom query! This is an amazing troubleshooting tool that is hidden from the average user.

    I'd like to get access to status messages from the object that makes the status message. For instance, if I right click on a task sequence deployment, I want to be able to view all status messages associated with that object. If I right click on a distribution…

  9. Report for all administrative actions

    It would be nice to have a report to list all administrative actions performed by admins in a CM site. A report similar to "Administration activity log", but not limited to changes in the administrative roles section.

  10. SCCM Wizards to provide Associated Log file Details - Similar to SCCM Update Monitor Wizard

    How about providing associated log file details at the end of the summary / completion page of all SCCM Wizards to help SCCM admins. I think it would be helpful. What you think?

    For example if you are creating a SUP role -> Add Site System Roles Wizard -> Completion page will have the log file name -> SUpsetup.log

    Do you love SCCM updates and servicing monitoring log file details?

  11. Add an option to the search feature to include sub-folders.

    The current search feature within the Admin Console only searches through the currently selected folder. Adding an option to allow sub-folders to be included in the search would make finding objects much more efficient.

  12. 1906 RBAC on folders needs to be optional.

    SCCM 1906 introduced scopes on folders which would be fine for a new SCCM install but not for an existing SCCM infrastructure that relies heavily on RBAC. Users don't understand why they can't find folders others have created in 1906.

    During upgrade from 1902 – 1902 SCCM automatically “fixes” all your folders so they behave just like they did with 1902. It does this be setting them with every security scope allowing users to still see these folders in 1906.

    Once 1906 is installed any new folder is created with the scope of the user creating it.

    Example:

    SCCM 1902…

  13. Fix the text in the title bar of the Admin Console to be correctly aligned with the top of the window when maximised

    Currently when the Admin Console is maximised some of the text in the title bar is not aligned correctly, it is set too high and is cut off. It displays correctly when the window is not maximised. See attached screenshots for example of what I mean.

    This is in 1706, but it has been like this for multiple versions now.

    It's only a minor cosmetic thing, but it's quite distracting.

  14. Include MSFT Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards with Configmgr

    Microsoft Premier Field Engineering has created custom Configmgr dashboards. These are available for purchase though Premier Support Contract. I'd like to suggest these be included in the Configmgr distribution.

    Overview
    The CMAD solution (Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards) delivers a data-driven reporting overview of the System Center Configuration Manager environment.
    This solution consists of a rich set of dashboards designed to deliver real-time reporting of ongoing activity in your Configuration Manager environment.
    Native Configuration Manager Reports are not replaced with this solution, the CMAD solution amplifies the data they show by providing additional data insights.
    The dashboards in this solution were…

  15. Adjustable Window Sizes within Admin Console

    It would be nice to have the ability to adjust window sizes within the console. As an example, the Membership rule window in the collection properties only has enough room to show 2 lines. Being able to maximize or edit to a custom size and have the console remember these sizes would be great.

    This could be incorporated into the fixes that are being introduced with the High DPI resolutions.

  16. Show/Use device IP-address from NotificationAgent update in Console

    In VPN scenarios the DNS resolution is missing or delayed very often. To troubleshoot a device the current device IP-address is important.
    You can force a DDR /heartbeat from the console, but this take a while until the information is arrived and actually it is unnecessary because the IP-address Information is already existing in the SCCM database from the NotificationAgent update cycle.
    (SELECT vGSNETWORKADAPTERCONFIGURATION.ResourceID, vGSNETWORKADAPTERCONFIGURATION.IPAddress0, vSMSRSYSTEM.NetbiosName0
    FROM v
    GSNETWORKADAPTERCONFIGURATION
    inner join vSMS
    RSYSTEM on vGSNETWORKADAPTERCONFIGURATION.ResourceID = vSMSRSYSTEM.ItemKey
    where vSMS

  17. Ability to Right-Click a Device and View All Recent Status Messages

    Provide a simpler way to target a Status Message Query at a Device by allowing you to Right-Click and View its latest Status Messages, rather than having to manually run through the Status Message Wizard.

  18. Tie ability to created application deployments in an enabled state to RBAC controls

    With the addition in the 2012 technical preview release of the ability to disable deployments could this be tied to RBAC so that users could be restricted to creating deployments in a disabled state and then an additional reviewer would be required to "enable" the deployment. Similar to the workflow when creating "scripts"

  19. Drag and Drop in console

    Why can't we simply drag and drop machines/users into collections instead of having to go through wizard?. It makes it much harder for Helpdesk to understand how to use the console (hence why most people use AD security groups as targets). Why not select/Multi-select items and drag into relevant collection

  20. Allow the opening of multiple objects and sub object from a single console.

    If I want to open two applications and their correlating Deployment types, I have to open two consoles. Can;t we just allow a single instance to do this?
