  1. In a CAS Hierarchy, allow Existing Accounts to be used across multiple Primary Sites

    In a CAS hierarchy, it is necessary to either create new accounts for each Primary Site (for example, Client Push), or enter the same details for the same account more than once, which results in multiple accounts with the same name. It would be better to be able to use one account across multiple Primary sites, such that entering a New account once one one site allows that selection as an Existing account at another Primary Site.

  2. Add size column to application deployment types

    It would be useful if in the console each application deployment type had its own "Size" column, and maybe the application itself could have a "total size" column of all the deployment types combined.

  5. Right click to view deployments and collections (and remove)

    In the console when we right click users and devices add "view assigned deployments" and "view assigned collections" without us needing to go into the properties window. Also give the option to remove them from the collection there as well, without actually having to navigate to the collection. This would be nice for quicker troubleshooting and problem resolution. Also add "view assigned deployments" to the right click menu of collections too.

  6. Console list exports to Excel spreadsheet

    Allow us to export various lists in the console to a formatted Excel spreadsheet (each category would be a column in the spreadsheet). This would be a lot easier than trying to get the info from the reporting server. This would be most useful for applications and packages (management likes to ask for this this every so often). Have an "export all" option that would export every item in the selected list, but also allow us to use shift or control + right click to select individual items and then export only those selected items. Also give the option toā€¦

  7. Add Software Update Point and last Software Scan Time to Client Activity within Devices on the Summary Tab

    On the Client Activity column of a device details on the Summary tab in the console please add two items.

    1) Last Software Update Scan / Evaluation
    2) Software Update Point

    This provides parity with the already existing Management Point information and last HINV and SINV scan times that are displayed. As a bonus maybe even throw in how many Missing Updates the device needs. :)

  8. Allow option to select AND/OR for searches of same criteria type including in ADR's too

    Currently when selecting criteria multiple times of the same type (such as title) allow the OR to be selectable as "OR" or "AND". This would make ADR's more powerful as well, to which ADR's incorrectly state OR when an AND is in fact being used currently.

  9. Show settings changed from default in bold

    As it does in the IIS and SQL management consoles, show any configuration settings that are changed from default in bold text.
    Perhaps also show the default value as a hover-over popup.

  12. SCCM and Mac address

    I work for Bluescope Buildings. We have recently ordered a large amount of Surface Pros. We have found out through trial and error that SCCM records the mac address as well as the Computer name which stops PXE from running twice. The issue is that If we use one docking station to image all of our Surface Pros the existing mac address stops us from running PXE on another unit using the same dock because the dock has its own mac address. My "idea" is to make the mac address search able in the GUI so that we can deleteā€¦

  13. Shorten Upgrade Readiness pull timeframe

    Currently OMS Upgrade Readiness updates changes daily however ConfigMgr pulls that information on a weekly basis per DMPDownloader.log it states it will pull every 10800 minutes as shown here.

    ---
    Download OMS upgrade analytics
    ...
    ...
    OMSUpgradeAnalyticsDownload finished
    OMS Upgrade Analytics Download interval is: every 10080 minutes
    ---

    This is once a week timeframe and should be way closer to OMS update cycle. Perhaps even configurable?

    For example I use the auto created collections from Readiness to then advertise an in-place TS to. This collection is from the Ready "bucket" in Readiness. If we have a system that is aā€¦

  14. AdminConsole is using 30% CPU on Windows 10 1703 - DWM.exe 15% - When minimized CPU usage is 1-5%...

    The adminconsole is causing the machine to chug like crazy. It was fine in Windows 10 1607, but once 1703 was installed DWM.exe and the adminconsole process CONSTANTLY eat 30-50% cpu making the machine near unusable. Someone else has to be experiencing this.

    I am running on a Surface Pro 3 with two external 1440p monitors, doesn't matter if they are connected or not, the SP3 within 5 minutes kicks on the fan, all other tasks just chug (OWA, Edge, etc.)

  15. Create an SCCM Community Catalog Feature

    Creating SCCM Collection Queries is an art, and like most art, some of us are more suited to stick-figures while others produce beautiful creations worthy of a place in the Louvre, featuring graceful sub-queries, artful tabbing and good code practices.

    When creating a collection, it would be helpful to have an optional 'Community Collection Catalogue' to choose from, which could have a user-voice style 'Most useful' collections list.

    Users could create collections here, possibly even having a community 'wish-list' area for those without skills to request from those who would like to share.

    Contributions in the community catalog could beā€¦

  17. Conflicting Process Detection Needs Work

    I have individual applications that make up the Creative Cloud Suite all with 3 DT's each to handle the various kinds of licenses. I have implemented the conflicting process detection but I am having to manually enter the same information three times. It would be good if we had PowerShell support, able to load an XML, be able to copy from one DT to another or reuse or have a list of already entered processes that you can select from. Also 15 processes is not enough. If you look at the conflicting process XML that Creative Cloud Packager spits outā€¦

  18. Allow multiple versions of the console to be installed

    Allow multiple versions of the Admin Console to be installed and used on a single system.
    In environments where multiple hierarchies are in use not all will be on the same version. This forces the use of multiple systems with the corresponding console version for remote management or the use of a down level console when only a single system is available.

  20. 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.
