  1. Change the behavior of selecting in a filtered list

    The current behavior of selection in a filtered list in at least the TS step "Auto Apply Drivers" (with limit driver matching) and also the Schedule Updates Wizard (those two places are confirmed the behaviour could be present elsewhere) is counterintuitive and even a little dangerous.

    If you select any of the options there while no filtered, then set a filter that excludes your previously selected option and afterwards clear the filter, the first option becomes unselected. This is even true if selected options were already saved.

    I do not know if this is a bug or a very strangeā€¦

  2. Have Cloud Management Gateway Dashboard

    Add a Dashboard for a better visibility on how many clients are managed by each CMG + bytes downloaded for organizations to know usage statistics for the service and make decisions like add\remove CMGs based on the data

  3. The Security/Certificates panel sorts dates poorly

    Administration >Overview > Security > Certificates sorts the dates poorly. For example, sorted in descending order I might see:
    1/16/2017
    11/17/2016
    12/15/2016
    2/23/2017
    etc. (this is an actual data in the most current version)

    The common sense expectation would be the sort to return:
    2/23/2017
    1/16/2017
    12/15/2016
    11/17/2016

    It appears to be sorting as a raw string instead of being aware the value is a date. Since this field is *always* a date and time, it doesn't make sense to sort this way.

  4. 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.

  5. Customizing Software Update Dashboard

    Please provide the ability to customize the Software Update Dashboard, such as the ability to exclude updates or update categories from it.

    It is a great dashboard to look at to have a quick glance into security compliance, however in its current state, it is not really useful.

    For example, the top 10 updates listed under "Devices Missing Updates" are either preview updates or multiple versions of the malicious software removal tool, neither of which we deploy, giving the dashboard a skewed perspective into security compliance.

    Thank you.

  8. Object Path in "All Objects" search

    Object Path is an improvement in 1702 console, but is better if this functionality can be used in "All Objects" search.

  9. Allow Import/Export of Client Settings

    It would be great if you could Allow Import/Export of Client Settings. This would allow us to share items like best practices for SCEP Exclusion settings or Hardware Inventory classes.

  11. Add the ability to Copy an Existing Boot Image

    I would like to be able to copy a boot image so I can update it and make changes without breaking the original boot image. Currently you have to create all new boot images by hand and manually add the drivers.

  14. Pin certain collections, deployments, SUG to console as node

    There is allready the functionallity to pin a certain collection as a node to the console under the node "Devices" by double-clicking this collection.

    It would be very helpful to pin the collection by right-clicking it. The collection should stay there until right-clicking "Close node" again. Even when closing the console.

    This would be very helpful for a software rollout, because we have to watch these collections for 1-2 weeks.

    Having this functionallity for deployments (Monitoring), SoftwareUpdateGroups, and so on would be brilliant.

  17. Window buttons disappear after waking from sleep

    Strangely, the window buttons (minimize, maximize, close) disappear after my computer wakes from sleep. They're still there, but just become invisible.
