  1. Allow "shortcuts" on the UI

    There are reports, queries and I perform frequently on the console. I'd like to see a way to "program" these into a shortcut icon on the top of the UI window so I could go to them quickly.

  2. Easier navigation between a deployment's properties and status in the admin console

    When I am in the Monitoring Workspace viewing the status of Deployments, I often want to open/edit the properties of a specific deployment. This should be accessible by right clicking the deployment, instead of having to make note of the update group or application being deployed and manually finding it in the software library to get to it's properties.

    The reverse process should also be easier. If I am in the Software Library viewing a software update group or application and select a specific deployment for that application, I should have a right click option for 'view status', which wouldā€¦

  3. Pop outs in the console

    The console is not very multi-monitor friendly. There are many times where I have to keep switching between the monitoring tab and one of the other tabs to troubleshoot problems. It would be nice if we could pop out certain parts of the console into new windows. It would be nice if we could do this to every node, but just doing it to the five tabs (Tools also) would be great. I wouldn't have to have so many copies of the console open to get the job done.

  6. Selected Client Setting is Lost when Changing Priority

    If you sort and then re-prioritize a given client setting it does not maintain the selection. So if you want prioritize something multiple times you need to re-select it every time.

  7. Align Verbage in Software Metering with verbage on file details

    When creating a new software metering rule, the console asks for the file version of the file. However, what is really required is the product version of the file. Unfortunately, these are not always equal as some vendors have different values between the two fields. When this occurs and time passes by and you put the file version, you have no metering data.

  8. Console hangs when switchting from TS to Monitoring - Deployments

    When we navigate to Software Library => Operating System => Task Sequences => select some TS.
    Click on a TS and under 'related objects' click on 'deployments'
    You are switched to monitoring - deployments but the console hangs (no reponse on any action). TS is deployed to some collection. In scenario when TS is not deployed to any collection it is ok. We tested it on CM 1602, 1606 and 1610 and it is same everywhere. According MS Escalation Support the query is extremely slow and should be redesing. From Escalation enginner: Iā€™ve been able to pinpoint the issue andā€¦

  9. Deployments should default to the safer option of "Available" instead of "Required"

    Where available (Package, Application, Updates, or Task Sequence), deployment should default to the safer option of "Available" vs. "Required."

  11. Disable a running deployment on remote devices

    Adding an option to force kill a running deployment, be that a Task Sequence, Application or Package, from a particular or multiple devices would be beneficial in certain circumstances. Not least when a mistake has been made or a potential critical error could be avoided by doing so.

  12. Export collection members

    Exporting member of collection to excel sheet is though easy but for large number or members (say more than 20K), it takes time to get them exported in the excel. MS should put the 2007 feature back which was just right click on collection and "Export Objects".

  13. Improve package and task sequence export to include deployment information

    We often export packages from QA to production, but the export does not include the deployments. Also, collections are not included so we have to 1. export collections, 2. Export TS or package, 3. Manually recreate the deployments.

  14. Set a Default Security Scope for user

    It would be nice to be able to assign a default security scope to a user.
    Ie; if someone creates a package, sccm assigns their set security scope(s) to the package instead of manually setting it.

  15. Allow search for multiple items at once

    Allow for searching for multiple items at once in the console search. Example - Add multiple package IDs to the search PR100158, PR1001CD for example. Useful when trying to re-distribute multiple content, search for related items such as dependencies, pre-reqs etc.

  16. User Voice Console Integration

    The ConfigMgr PG encourages users to share ideas and concerns via user voice. It would be helpful to have the user voice portal linked in the ConfigMgr console in a context sensitive way so that at any node a User Voice submission can be made and appropriate metadata from the console (location, details) shared (as an option) to help describe the particular submission (where applicable)

  17. Resultant set of Client Settings should show what policy set the page

    If you use several custom client settings, it can be difficult to piece together which one was controlling the actual resultant settings. Add a column on the right which shows the name and priority of the policy that controlled the page (or all that contributed to it for things that are merged... when you get to doing this for antimalware policies)

  18. Add direct link to Logs file in Ribbons bar

    Add in the Ribbon toolbar, a direct access to the log (opening it through cmtrace).
    For example, when doing a check for updates in "Updates and Servicing", in the ribbon next to "Client update options" icon, we can add an icon to open the proper "dmpdownloader"log file !!
    So, we don't have to remember all logs or bing internet to find the right log ... we would gain a lot of time and be sure that everything is working fine !!
