  2. I want Office 365 updates to show up under "All Software Updates" where they should be...

    Someone brilliantly decided that Office 365 Client Updates no longer should show up under "All Software Updates"! If they're not software updates, what are they??

  3. 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.

  4. Admin console should have a command line parameter for specifying a SMS Provider

    Allow the SCCM AdminConsole to be started with a Primary Site Server parameter:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe" /PS:server.domain.com

    That way we can use multiple shortcuts on the same management server (or on our own devices) to manage multiple SCCM environments for our customer more easily, rather then logging on their primary site servers to start the AdminConsole.

  5. change


    1. Phased deployment should be extended to all deployments [application, package, patch] and not limited to only TS

    2. real-time monitoring of OS migration and upgrade

    3. Extend the feature that is available in 1802 for dashboards to displays a list of relevant devices when graph sections are selected for all dashboards

    4. Reboot management - need better control and customization. Enterprise look at giving more options to users. Similar to allowing IT admin customize the software center, reboot option should also be allowed for customization by IT.

  6. Make a Dashboard with the Top 10 Client Errors and make them moveable or selectable

    Show the Errors clients reported and show a Top 10 List. Make them moveable to a new Collection to solve the Problem more fast.

  7. Installation Workflow for Software

    When create a new software/application you have a workflow-editor to create some chooses.
    possible you can check the regedit for a existing regkey, when this is exist go that way, when not the other way.

    that is importent when a software give more installation-return-codes back to go the right way.

  8. Maintenance Window tab in device properties

    In Assets and Compliance -> Devices -> (right click any device) -> Properties

    There are currently 3 tabs, General, Deployments, Variables. Since a device can be part of several different collections and maintenance windows are applied on the collection level it would be nice to quickly see what maintenance windows are assigned to a device.

  9. Fix SMS_Hierarchy_Manager disk space reporting for SQL

    SMSHierarchyManager reports low disk space on a remote SQL server if the data is stored on a mount point.

    For example, D: is about 1 GB:

    A directory of the D: drive shows:

    Directory of D:\
    02/02/2018 09:46 AM <JUNCTION> Data [\??\Volume{711e7557-0000-0000-0000-100000000000}]
    02/05/2018 10:42 AM <DIR> MSSQL
    02/02/2018 09:49 AM <JUNCTION> TEMPDB [\??\Volume{711e74b3-0000-0000-0000-100000000000}]
    02/02/2018 09:49 AM <JUNCTION> TLOGS [\??\Volume{711e74bb-0000-0000-0000-100000000000}]

    SCCM 1710 does not recognize that the database folder is actually a much larger (~75 GB) mount point and falsely reports an error condition.

  10. Rename folder - re-order list needed

    After renaming a folder under Applications/Packages and probably elsewhere too, the folders don't re-order themselves until you quit and restart the Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) Console.

    Would like the folders to simply re-sort themselves alphabetically after renaming a folder.

  12. Ability to copy and paste disk space free and disk total columns from console under Monitoring / Overview / System Status / Site Status

    From the console, navigate to Monitoring / Overview / System Status / Site Status. Add "Free" and "Total" if not already a column. Select All and copy. Paste in Excel or notepad. Total Disk Space and Free disk space do not copy.

    Please add the ability to copy and paste disk space free and disk space total columns from console under Monitoring / Overview / System Status / Site Status

  13. Skype for Business integration to ConfigMgr console

    Show Skype for Business status of computer's primary user within ConfigMgr admin console. Only show the online status if the admin console compyuter has SfB installed. Also, make this optional.

    Additionally add an option to start SfB chat with the user by right-clicking the computer/user from admin console.

    Skype for Business is a great way to provide support to users and you can share the screen even with computers on internet.

  14. Provide Ability to Export/Import Status Message Queries

    It would be very beneficial to have the ability to natively import and export custom Status Message Queries. I find creating customized Status Message Queries are extremely useful especially for Auditing and tracking OSD status messages. It would be even better if we can export and import to transfer them to multiple environments :).

    There are custom PowerShell scripts out there; however, it would make more sense to have this ability built in the console as we have with Collections, Packages, Applications, and Task Sequences.

  15. Provide better error information

    It would be nice if Microsoft could provide better error information in More Detail links. When you click on a "More Detail" link of an error message to only get that the problem was an error, it does not help to pin point a problem. I knew it was an error before I clicked the more detail link. Way to go Microsoft!

  16. System Maintenance

    I would like to see a way to do right click a collection and do a Disk Cleanup, a Defragment Hard Drive all with policy settings in place so that we can do simple maintenance on machines. Reimaging sometimes ISN'T the best option when users have finicky software installed.
    My goal is to free space, optimize the hard drive maybe even with a task sequence.

  17. cannot access some context menu options from the device list or query - only from collections

    workflow:
    1. find user in 'users list'
    2. click on 'primary devices' for the user
    3. primary device opens as a query in the devices node
    4. click on the device
    5. copy pc name to clipboard
    6. navigate to device collections and to a collection containing pc
    7. paste pc name to filter
    8. right click the device for the full list of context menu items (endpoint protection, client notification options, etc.)

    Why can't i just right click the device in the query?

  20. Include deployment in windows update for business wizard

    When you create a Windows Update for Business policy in the console, I suggest that the deployment settings are included in the same wizard as where you configure your policies. It creates a more natural workflow.
