  1. Quick Tasks - perform tasks that GP Preferences can't.

    Include some extended task based functionality to improve group policy. For example, Group policy preferences can create a shortcut. SCCM should be able to create a shortcut that can run with elevated privileges - or run a list of tasks with different elevation levels.
    Thanks heaps.

  2. Device Properties - Tab for Collection Membership

    Tab for collection Membership in device properties will be time saving .
    It is painful to check the membership of the device.

  3. Add computer model as a column

    Can you add ā€œcomputer modelā€ as a column option for devices. When looking at devices, that seems to be the only field missing when we are trying to sort by things such as OS, computer name, etc. Can you also add a way for us to rename or mask these models. For example, when we look at Lenovo models we get what looks like a serial number instead of T480s. Having the ability to update that model number to an actual name will help. Thanks.

  4. Make Comments/Description a default column in Applications/Packages

    Whenever the Admin console is updated, the column fields for standard viewing are reset. Please make the Comments and Description (where applicable) one of the default columns in every view. This is especially useful in the Software Library\Applications and Software Library\Packages sections. In a large enterprise environment with multiple technicians working in the console, this is very helpful to keep them all reading the necessary comments where applicable.

  5. Would like for a Configuration Manager Console package to be created automatically on site upgrade

    Would like for a Configuration Manager Console package to be created automatically on site upgrade as is done with the Configuration Manager Client package. The use case is for deploying the admin console to new operators. Instead of having to manually create an admin console package and update it after each site upgrade, SCCM could automatically create and update this package.

  6. SCCM Scripts: column for Security Scope in Scripts pane

    You can set security scopes on Scripts, but you can't see the security scope from the pane - there is no option to add the column to the view.

  7. recover deleted objects

    Allow us a way to recover objects deleted from the console. Basically a recover/undelete function for all objects deleted from the console.

    Thanks!

  8. Admins should be able to force systems to checkin without being admins on the systems

    I am a full administrator on the console, but we are connected to multiple domains but my account is not an admin in all of the domains. As a program/software updates installs under the user context that is defined for each of the domains, I should be able to push a system check in to have a computer install a client, run a hardware check in, etc., under my admin account in the console without logging in with an administrator account in each domain.

  9. Push Task Sequences that start immediately

    Right click on any device or device collection and start a task sequence on that device/collection without the need to be at the computer(s)

    The push should start the task sequence immediately.

  10. Integrate a type of Feedback hub into SCCM as a right click option

    It would be nice to have the option to right click on any machine or group of machines, select feedback and a pop up message would appear on client's machine indication to fill out form to provide feedback. This would help with test users. The pilot groups that get security/software updates or a new application push. Tracking those users to provide feedback is hard enough but easier if this option was managed or made available through SCCM.

  11. SMSAdminUI should log the username which launched the console.

    SMSAdminUI should log the user name which launched the console.

    Currently SMSAdminUI does not log who launches the SCCM console instead reporting

  12. primary user

    The list in the Admin-UI, where you can select/assign the primary user for a device, is based on hardware inventory.
    Please Include the "currently logged on user" information (based on BGB channel) in this same list.

  13. Get Rid of the Prompt about Zero Members in a Collection

    Remove the pop up about no members in a collection whenever creating a collection or editing a collection, or deploying a package to an empty collection.

  14. Right Click\Client Notification has a "Restart" option. I think this should be more labeled with a more specific term like "Reboot"

    The term "Restart" is kind of vague. Could mean "restart the SMS service". If it reboots the server that is what it should say: "REBOOT" or "Restart computer\server"

  15. Block DP reassignment if has been enabled as Pull Distribution Point

    While reassigning a Pull Distribution point from one site to another at times breaks, such as package data or status missing from sites. To avoid this scenario, we would recommend to have a validation point like few others which we have in queue(Already queued in v_MIG_MigratedDPs table or if it has roles more than DP like SUP or MP) There should be an additional validation if it's enabled as Pull DP, then console should not allow anyone to perform DP reassignment by showing error like "The DP you are trying to reassign has enabled with Pull DP, Try removing Pullā€¦

  16. "Enabled" Column Under Collection View "Deployments" Tab for Software Update Deployments

    It would be great to have an "Enabled" column for Software Update deployments under the Device Collection view's "Deployments" tab. Currently, the "Enabled" status is listed when viewing deployments under the Software Update Groups "Deployment" tab, but not the Device Collection "Deployment" tab. Being able to right-click toggle "Enable" / "Disable" for one or more deployments (like the Software Updates view) would also be appreciated.

  17. Search Feature for Membership Tab in Collection Properties

    We have a large number of clients and many Collections are setup to use Direct Membership rules. When in the Collection Properties, Memberships tab, when there are a lot of Direct Membership rules it can be difficult to find a specific entry if a change needs to be made. It would be nice if there was a Search feature in this window to make it easier to find a specific rule for cases where a rule may need to be removed.

  18. Content Status

    The 'Content Status' node of the Monitoring workspace is a great place to get a quick look at what objects are not distributed properly.

    It would be great if we could trigger a content distribution directly from this node instead of having to navigate to the Application, Package, etc that needs attention.

  19. Increase block size for pulse mode (distribution point rate limit)

    Using pulse mode rate limit on a distribution point can enable a 2Mbps bandwidth cap. This is useful and it would be great if the block size limit of 256KB be increased to support higher thresholds.

  20. Global Search Bar

    Create a Search Bar that activates across all console panes to provide a quick search and drill through capability across all object types. For example, from the Assets and Compliance pane - search for "automatic client upgrade" and have it display a drill through link directly launch the Hierarchy Settings dialog box to display the pane where the setting resides.
