    Computers that aleready are in SCCM - could be nice to right click and import to Intune/autopilot.
    This option will of cause only be ready when co-management is setup.

    • Make recurring scheduling similar to Outlook scheduling

      Recurring maintenance window and deployment scheduling should allow specifying weekdays or weekends, similar to Outlook. See attached Outlook screenshot.

      • Jumping back and forth between UI's in Console is inefective.

        Jumping back and forth between UI's in Console is inefective. Memorize some of the few places an admin uses the most and stick those places to the side of the ConfigMgr Console like favorites. Came from SCUGno Oktober Meeting 2018

        • Allow the opening of multiple objects and sub object from a single console.

          If I want to open two applications and their correlating Deployment types, I have to open two consoles. Can;t we just allow a single instance to do this?

          • Allow a Collection to be chosen for the Windows 10 Servicing graphs

            The Office 365 Client Management graphs allow for a collection to be chosen. Can the same be done for the Windows 10 Servicing graphs?

            • Show Operating System Caption in Device Columns

              Add a column of the OS instead of the less friendly display for the Device View.

              Basically - Show 'Windows 10 Enterprise 1803' instead of 'Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 10.0'

              • CMPivot - Additional operators and joins

                I'd like to see a few things added to CMPivot after having a chance to use it recently.
                1. Joins: Would be really useful to be able to join data from different entities, like joining process data with the device data to be able see what makes and models are running a specific process that may have a memory leak issue.

                2. Additional Operators: Would be nice to be able to do a math operation on data that comes back, convert memory values to MB/GB with division, etc.

                • "Size All Columns to Fit" as default

                  It would be very helpful if the option "Size all columns to fit" (right click on title list e.g. Name) will be set as default.

                  • Let admins customize the default list for columns for all nodes, instead of having to create an entirely new node

                    It would be an enormous time saver for admins to be able to simply add something like 'IP ADDRESS' to the default column list options for the 'Devices' node under Assets and Compliance or the 'Distribution Points' node under Administration.

                    • select multiple object a open properties

                      The ability to select multiple objects and open a properties menu would be helpful. I.e. if I need to change 30 CI's it would take a long time to open them all individually, but if I was able to select all 30 and right click properties that task would be much quicker.

                      • Custom columns for devices and ability to remove unused choices to avoid unnessesary scrolling

                        I often find myself having to create reports instead of filtering and sorting devices when I have to find ie old os build in specific OU.
                        So why not make available custom columns! If not possible I need OU information to sort and filter by!

                        • Generate interactive map with connectet collections

                          It would be great it there would be an option or an extra tool which get informations over Powershell or SQL and generate an interactive map with show all connections between devices, collections and Applications.

                          After some years of using my Configmgr there are tons of connected collections where I not have an overview.
                          if there would be a way the generate an interactive map/overview where i can list all the connections which are made in the Configmgr that would be great. it would also help to visualize the complexity of the environment.

                            GUI for result of Maintenance Tasks on SCCM 2012 will be a great feature to have . For example....a GUI that shows the complete week....and..on green color..when the task completed succesfully...and how many time it took.
                            If you have multyple sites , that you can see all the Primary Sites Maintenance tasks..represented using the CAS time as reference.

                            • Rename SCCM Objects using F2

                              It would be a benefit if one could rename SCCM objects (Collections, Applications, TaskSequences, ...) by pressing F2 instead of going into the objects properties.

                              This would save a lot of time managing objects.

                                • Servicing Plans List (Deployment?)

                                  It would be nice if you could quickly be able to see where a Service Plan is deployed like in the Software Update Groups with the tabs at the bottom after selecting a Update Group. With Service Plans today you have to open the properties of the Service Plan to see exactly what device collection is it being deployed to.

                                  • searchbar on devices tab

                                    It would be nice if the search bar on the devices tab would remove trailing spaces before searches. The issue is that we copy and paste a device name from a report and there will sometime be a trailing space that comes along with the paste. If this space is present when hitting the search button, the search will not find the device.

                                      Add a personalized workspace that will show all frequently viewed tabs in sccm console. This is same feature that's included in SCOM console. A user can have his personalized console with all the tabs that they use like one particular collection, report, application, and so on

                                      • When retiring an app allow the app to retire associated Apps.

                                        Currently you can't even retire the dependent app then retire the main app, at least allow the main at to retire with an association to an already retired app.

                                        • Bounadry group priority

                                          As part of the processes for locating content, clients first look to Active Directory sites to decide where to get their content and not the boundary groups. I think this design should be changed in the sense that AD sites should be used as a fallback if a subnet is not part of a boundary group in SCCM. Not SCCM boundary groups used as a fallback.
