  2. 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.

  3. 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€¦

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Include Option to Enable Two-Person Integrity

    We would like to see an option to enable two-person integrity through the SCCM Console. Once enabled, the workflow would be as follows: Operator 1 creates a deployment, then Operator 2 must review and approve the deployment. Once the deployment is approved, the deployment becomes active.

  12. Task sequence media - compute space does not consider removed applications/packages

    When creating stand-alone media you have the option to select which Applications,Packages and driver packages it should include onto the media or not. After clicking next on the summary page the process of starting the media launches. in the createTSMedia.log you can see that at some point the process starts to compute volume layout. It seems that the compute of the volume layout does take into account the software you selected to not be on the media. Therefore you might get the message that you do not have enough space on the USBFD media altough this is not trough. Atā€¦

  13. Display Computers in a collection using the FQDN ( Resource Names) , currently only displays NetBIOS names.

    In the SCCM Console, computers in a collections only display netBIOS name, would be helpful if we could add a column to display the computers FQDN. Our SCCM manages multiple domains and this would help when search and adding specific computers to a deployment collection

  14. Allow Boolean Parameter Types in RunScripts

    The addition of Parameters to Scripts was a welcome feature however it'd be nice to also support the boolean parameter type. While other parameter types (arrays, switch, etc.) would be helpful, I feel that most of them could be reproduced (smartly) by using String, or Boolean for most situations.

  15. Show/Use device IP-address from NotificationAgent update in Console

    In VPN scenarios the DNS resolution is missing or delayed very often. To troubleshoot a device the current device IP-address is important.
    You can force a DDR /heartbeat from the console, but this take a while until the information is arrived and actually it is unnecessary because the IP-address Information is already existing in the SCCM database from the NotificationAgent update cycle.
    (SELECT v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.ResourceID, v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.IPAddress0, vSMS_R_SYSTEM.Netbios_Name0
    FROM v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION
    inner join vSMS_R_SYSTEM on v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.ResourceID = vSMS_R_SYSTEM.ItemKey
    where vSMS_R_SYSTEM.Netbios_Name0 = 'DEVICENAME')

    It would be nice to get the Information directly in the console. And it would be nice as well, when theā€¦

  16. Add "Software Updates Scan Cycle" to the Client Notification Menu

    I'm not sure whether the "Evaluate Software Update Deployments" Client Notificaction runs a previous scan cycle.
    I implemented a Powershell script to do that but I strongly think that it should appear as a Client Notification in the same way it appears in the "Config Manager" Control Panel at the client computers.

  19. Be nice to see the logged in account at the top next to the site information

    Sometimes we open multiple consoles on one computer to things such as confirm Role Base access is working correctly or compare other items. Be great when doing a run as to launch the console we can differentiate between the two instances.

  20. Device List - temporarily pin devices

    During any week there may be one or more workstations or other devices that are getting special scrutiny. I would be handy to be able to pin some to the area above the list of devices (to a toolbar?).
    Thanks heaps.
