  2. Incorporate VAMT into console

    Being able to right click a device and see and manage key types and activations would be very helpful when rolling out SCCM and KMS into a large existing environment full of OEM editions.

  3. Combine the Content Status pane tabs into one table

    Find a way to combine the tabs for Success, In Progress, Error and Unknown into a single table with the same information that makes getting an overview of Content Status more efficient.

  4. Ability to enable/disable any deployment (like you can with software update deployments)

    You should be able to enable or disable any deployment (for applications, packages, software updates, etc) by right-clicking and selecting enable or disable.
    Currently to disable an application deployment you either have to delete the deployment or retire the application and for packages you need to disable the program.
    Software update deployments already have this feature.
    You should also be able to enable/disable a deployment from the Monitoring workspace.

  5. Change the sort view behaviour

    When sorting any area alphabetically (or using any other criteria), the view automatically jumps to the top (or bottom). This defeats the purpose of reversing a sort. For example, if I have 2000 objects in the view, and the object I am looking for starts with a "U", it makes sense to reverse the name sort to reverse-alphabetical, however, when I do that it dumps me at the bottom, meaning now I have to scroll *up* through 1800 objects instead of down. Please change this so that when a sort order is called for, the view stays in the sameā€¦

  6. 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€¦

  7. Extensions for Windows Intune

    It should be possible that extensions for Windows Intune can be installed without adminrights while opening the Admin Console after the Extension is activated.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

    At wizard completion for anything, show the Powershell cmdlet equivalent like in other System Center products.

  11. An improved console that merged ADUC, GPMC, and SCCM deployments/queries/collections

    Imagine a console like ADUC that let you view GPOs and AD objects alongside each other, with contextual color-tinted overlays that help you visualize where items are applied. It should also display SCCM collections, queries, and deployments.

  12. Improve console communication and security to site server

    To use the console you need to open up the RPC dynamic port range as the SMS provider is using WMI.

    Isn't it time to move to a more secure communication method which allows the reduction in open ports to the site server?

  13. Add resources dialog not accepting 'Enter'

    If you like to add a resource to a collection by right clicking on it and starting the 'Add Resource'-Dialog, you have to click the search button by mouse or using tab after enter a search string. Perhaps it will be better to enable pressing the enter button to search for clients.

  14. objects

    Built in SCCM tools to show what collections a machine is in, connect to the root of C:\ etc. Basically like the 3rd party tools that are out there.

  15. Viewing status of Deployments erases search results

    When searching for deployments, say "May 2015", to see all of the Patch Deployments that you have recently deployed, once you double click/view status on a single one, you have to re-search for the "May 2015" deployments again. Suggest to use the Search Bar similar to the way that Explorer uses the Bread Crumbs on a search folder, so once you go back to the Deployments Tab, your original search criteria is there.
