  1. Allow searching all subfolders in all nodes

    Searching "all subfolders" is not available for all nodes. It would be really helpful to have that available for all nodes where it is possible to create subfolders.

  2. Persist console backward and forward data with Recent Searches

    Usually we search for objects and navigate away to a different node. we can use the backward button to comeback to that node but not to the searched items. We can use the Recent Searches to search for the same items. However it would be better if we can integrate the recent searches as well with the backward and forward buttons.

  3. Add Column for Email just like 'Primary User'.

    Add Column for Email just like 'Primary User'. This will allow rapid targeted communication to the Primary Users in a collection.

  4. Console - Add Application Name to Application Properties in Summary Tab

    Add the Application Name to the Summary Tab under Application Properties so you can easily copy & paste the name.

    If you could actually do this in all areas of the Console, anything you have open, having the Name of the object in the Summary Properties so you can copy & paste out is nifty.

    NOTE: ConfigMgr Dev Team at MMSMOA Cabin Session did this for Packages, so hopefully that hits an up coming release, but I'd like to see this in all areas:
    Collections: DONE
    Task Sequences: DONE
    Global Conditions: Not Done
    Drivers: DONE
    Driver Packages: Not Done

    Can you please add duplicate hardware identifiers for USB boot also, i think currently it is only for PXE boot.

  6. Modify Task Sequence Option for Computer Restarts That Respects Client Settings and Maintenance Windows

    When creating a task sequence to be used for the installation of multiple applications or packages, it would be nice to have "Restart Computer" (under General in a Task Sequence) respect the client settings, as well as maintenance windows defined in a collection.

    For example, software updates that get installed via ADRs have the ability to install outside of the maintenance window and only reboot at a specific time that we designate based on our client settings inside the maintenance window. If a task sequence is configured to install a package where we would require a reboot, we'd like toā€¦

  7. client settings show configured settings group

    I would like to see a new column under the Client Settings view that will list the names of the configured settings. This is extremely helpful when trying to troubleshoot. In our case we have CS applied to multiple collections because we have default workstation ones then laptop specific ones, and finally regional branding.

  8. Integrate a GitHub (or GitHub Enterprise) Repository/Branch as the source of "Software Library\Scripts"

    It would be great if you could specify a Git Repository and Branch as the source of the contents of the Scripts Folder. This would allow the approvals to be managed in GitHub with all the abilities around code review and testing.
    It could still require an admin approval in the console which Version of the script should be used. It would also make rollbacks to an earlier version very easy.
    If you allow having "folders" in the Script folder, each of them could be a repository. You still should need to approve which version to run, but MVPs couldā€¦

  9. Easy search

    it would be nice, when searching for an application using 'all subfolders', the path to the application is made available.

  10. Add column to display Computer Description in Devices list

    For us admins systems it is information we miss, because we have server numbers but do not know what application is running behind. When we have more than 500 servers it is not easy to memorize all the roles.

  11. Office 365 client versions latest version distinction

    It would be nice in the Office 365 Client Management pie chart that lists the different versions of office, if the latest versions of the different channels were noted which ones were the latest version to make them stick out from the out of date versions.

  13. Ability to create subscribe from report screen

    It would be a time saver to be able to create a subscription to a report from the "Vew Report" screen with the paramaters of the report viewed.

  14. Please provide alert when the offline source for the ServiceConnectionTool has been updated

    Please provide an alert or alternative method for when the ServiceConnectionTool offline content has been updated for the latest CB release.
    This would be useful in an environment where the SCCM Site server has internet access - a new column could be added to display the offline content status if it is available or not. Currently there is no status for the offline content download; I have been trying to download the offline content for my offline airgapped environments and it is only downloading the 1810 update. Or, if there is another way to alert admins that the content isā€¦

  15. Dashboards in general - provide the code to build the dashboard outside the console

    More and more dashboard are popping up in the Console.
    Please provide the code to build the same dashboard outside the console.
    Example Right click the dashboard and copy code or publish in the documentation.

  17. Show where Collections and Applications are in the folder structure

    At the moment, I cannot tell where a Collection(s) and Application(s) are in the SCCM folder structure. Searching can be a pain if I forget where they are, and they only way to find them is to search for them. It would be nice to show where the Collection\Application is located i.e. folder path, saving have to search for them all the time.

  18. Community Hub: RBAC or opt-out

    With 1902 we introduced the Community Hub to the current branch release. Even it's a great feature, some users shouldn't be able to see it. It would be nice if we could use RBAC or a site setting do hide it from consoles.

  19. Allow Custom Querys to be used to popoulate a custom made column.

    At the moment you can add additional columns to the SCCM Management Console by selecting the pre-defined options i.e. OS Version, MAC Address etc. I would like to create a custom query that I can use, just like queries are used currently to populate collections based on criteria, I would like to see it implemented for columns too. It would be great to see at a glance, custom queries against devices etc without having to create a query based collection.

  20. Re-run Query without having to close node then run again

    In the Monitoring section of the Admin Console, be able to rerun queries without having to close the node then execute the query again. A preferred solution would be to right click an open query then have a option to run again.
