  1. Add an address bar to the "Browse Registry" window when creating registry based detection methods

    Add an address bar like regedit has on Windows 10 to the registry browser when creating detection methods for applications. Currently you have to drill down to the registry location that you need every time you open the registry browser.

    Also, if the address bar could have a dropdown of "favorites" or "most used" locations, that would save a lot of time when creating applications.

    • Button to Temporarily Disable SCEP

      It would be great for both devices and collections to be able to right-click or click a button in the ribbon to temporarily disable SCEP. Many times do we have a piece of software that requires A/V to be disabled to install. We have a collection that disables SCEP, so we move the machine to that collection, and then move it back later, but sometimes you don't get the all clear, or you just get busy. If you could click a button to either disable, or temporarily disable immediately, that would be amazing. I have used other A/V products that…

      • Add 'are you sure' logic to buttons in the ribbon

        Would be great to have a prompt for certain buttons in the ribbon to verify you clicked the correct button. Many, many times I want to click 'refresh' on a collection only to accidentally click 'copy'. Not a huge issue, but an annoyance where I have to them delete the unwanted collection.

        • Fix drag and drop for moving nested folders in a Task Sequence

          Specifically moving a nested folder up to the root level. If you use drag and drop, it's hit and miss as to whether the Folder ends up at the root level or nested in some other nearby folder.

          The move up/down buttons work around the problem, but if you are moving it up past 20 other TS steps, it's not ideal.

          The black line that indicates where you're dragging it has a small arrow head on the end. Maybe change that to a different indicator that would show whether it's dropping it at the root vs. into another folder.

          • Copy Column Headings When Using Ctrl + C

            Its a fairly basic requirement for Collections and Queries, and as SCCM's data comes from SQL which has a console that allows you to copy and paste query results INCLUDING the column headings, it has to be a simple task surely?

            Whether it is simple or not, copying and pasting data from Collections and particularly Queries is a very frequent task for most admins, and is huge time saver compared to creating Reports.

            So, *please* can you add this in?

            • Add separate security role permission for CMPivot

              Console users must have "Run Scripts" security role permission to use CMPivot. Can you add a separate security role permission for CMPivot so we can make administrative users with CMPivot permission but not "Run Scripts?"

              • Updating admin console without the need of local admin rights

                After upgrading the site, the admin console need to be update. So why does it needs to need a local admin to make the update? Just do it as the client and make it automatically updates.

                      • Create Option to upload csv/import of Duplicate Hardware Identifiers

                        Under Administration/Site Config/Sites/<site>/Hierarchy Settings;
                        It would be nice to be able to upload a list of Duplicate Hardware Identifiers. saving the tedious process of imputing a large list of mac addresses. I currently scan the mac addresses in but even with a barcode scanner it is time consuming. Either making a text area to enter a list of ID's or allowing for a .csv or some type of file to be uploaded would be great!

                              • Add additional information on CMG Monitoring

                                The CMG dashboard needs to be developed further to see which clients are using it and what content they have downloaded. In addition, we should be able to see how much we are being charged for this to enable us make a decision on whether we add additional content or prevent further download of content already in the CMG

                                Dashboard is a screenshot, not enough and shouldn't be considered 'Monitoring'. I know this is a new concept but i believe as this becomes more widely used, there will be a greater demand for this

                                • Windows Defender ATP Agent Onboarding State should include all supported ATP OS

                                  In the Devices view, ATP onboarding state is only reported for Windows 10 devices. Other OS have a blank state.

                                  Currently (Oct-Nov 2018) working on an ATP trial with a customer who has +90% Windows 7 workstations. Support for Windows versions previous to Windows 10 is currently a preview feature for ATP. Still, having the ATP onboarding state and related info for Windows pre-10, would provide for a much nicer overview. The customer doesn't want to hear to upgrade to Windows 10 all the time.

                                      • Allow the selection of multiple Applications to deploy to a collection

                                        This should not universal and not limited to applications. If you have to deploy a dozen items to a collection this can be tiresome. I do this with Application, Compliance, and Packages on a regular basis.
