  1. 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€¦

  2. System Status sort order by icon or status

    When looking System Status> Site Status or Component status you can order by column headers. When clicking on Icon - desired sort order would be red,yellow,green (or opposite) and when clicking on Status then Critical,Warning, OK ( or opposite) .
    At moment it is mixed, ie not in severity order, but more like yellow,green, red.
    If there is long list of rows and it doesnt fit on screen You must click and scroll several times.

  3. 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."

  4. 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.

  5. Monitoring/Query - export data

    During the cutting and pasting in the query section, also allow the capture of the label column. This would have to be a bit 'faster to export the data. The best solution would be to have the ability to export via a dedicated button in various formats, csv, excel, pdf.

  6. 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.

  10. Language settings in Configuration Manager Admin Console.

    I want to be able to change language in the Configuration Manager admin console. Right now the console uses the same language as my system language (which is swedish). There should be language packs for the admin console.

  12. Tabs and windows

    The console is very modal. Trying to compare two things side by side is impossible. What we need is tabs and woodies. Let me right click a node or an object and bring it up in a new window or tab so i don't have to keep performing the same searches over and over again.

  13. Allow filtering to all-subfolders when browser for packages/applications during a task sequence.

    When you browse for packages or applications to add to a Task Sequence, you can only filter to the current folder. When you have a massive folder structure with hundreds or thousands of packages/applications you have to browse for a while to find what you need. If you could change the filter to be all subfolders, it would resolve this issue perfectly!

  14. 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".

  15. Refresh Search New Collection

    when creating a new collection from a search result (ie. user/device). once the collection is created, the search should not be refreshed. as today, the search is cleared. if you have a custom search, you need to apply all filters or load the search again, and it can take time on large environments

  16. 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.

  17. view status

    the view status option (ie deployment, content status, etc). only allow 1 option each time, so if you click view status and need to go back to the list it will refresh and you may need to filter it back and view status on the other one that you want. it would be good if the view status could be done on selected items, so you click view status (maybe right click the select and view status) and it would create the node for all selected items

  18. Real-time installation status per-machine or collection

    Display real-time installation status on a per machine or per collection basis within the SCCM console. For instance, if installing 20 software updates to a single client, one has to log into the client, launch Software Center, and view the installation status for each update. This status could be installing, waiting to install, reboot required, etc. Rolling this up into the console to say installing 1 of 20, 5% complete, installing application X, 25% complete, running task sequence step 4 of 10, 40% complete, rebooting, back online, etc. would be valuable on a per server or per collection basis.

  19. 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)

  20. 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.
