  1. Add a "Documentation" hyperlink to all primary objects that supports OneNote links

    I'd love to see a "Documentation" field for all major objects in the ConfigMgr console (TaskSequence, Bootimage, Collections, Driver Packages,...) that could be used to link existing documentation on to object XYZ so admins are easily able to identify WHY things exists, not only that they do/were created by person X on day Y.
    It would be amazing if this link field could
    - recognize OneNote links
    - give you the option to create a new OneNote page within an existing OneNote Notebook and automatically put in the link

    • Fix the problem when deleting a collection that is scoped to a user.

      When deleting a collection scope to a user you receive the error "This collection cannot be deleted. It is assigned as scope to another user". This can be challenging locating and removing the scope of this collection then have to come back and delete the collection.
      Why can't we provide a check box on this warning giving the option to remove all scoped reference and proceed with collection deletion.

        • Run Scripts: Run multiple scripts concurrently in the same console

          Often times I need to kick off multiple scripts at the same time/in the same time frame. Currently, that means I need multiple console sessions open to accomplish this.

          It would be great if I could start multiple scripts in the same console.

            • Remove Endpoint Protection buttons if it is not installed

              The "Endpoint Protection" buttons are always visible in the Admin Console altough the feature / component System Center Endpoint Protection is not activated.
              The buttons are found in the headbar of the console and in the right-click context menu of a device or device collection.
              I assume this affects all customers which have a 3rd Party AntiVirus solution.

              This behaviour is also inconsistent with the other features - if I do not enable the feature, the feature does not show up in the console.
              Removing the Endpoint Protection Buttons would free up space for other buttons.

              • Community Hub - Documentation - Introduce multiple browser tabs

                Can you make the TP's Community Hub > Documentation Panel show browser tabs. It is currently disabled.

                We tend to have multiple web pages open within the documentation library.

                Bonus points if the currently open page\tabs can be retained between Console sessions for each user, and re-opened when the panel is re-visited.

                • Better / More Thorough / Friendly intergration in console

                  When in the console and you are working in large / complex infrastructures it is not always the most intuitive to find what you are looking for I.E. you have many folders created for applications etc - you browse through the folders, find the application you want and can view the collection in the bottom of the console that it is deployed against - you right click the collection name at the bottom of the console and right click and instead of giving you the properties of the collection it gives you the properties of the package from the top…

                  • In the Packges search field, allow operators like powershell (Reader -or flash -or chrome)

                    When searching for packages or applications it would be nice to use typed in operators. Example: Reader -or flash -or chrome, each string would be a match for any package with that string, so in this example all packages with Reader, Flash or Chrome would be listed. It would be nice if the query could be saved, the criteria system is great, just looking for a little more flexibility.

                      • Ability to change site during loading

                        Hi! I am working with different sites where the Internet connection is really slow. If I quit the admin console while connected to a site with over 1k MS, it takes a long time to launch the console again. During this time I would like to have the opportunity to change site to either the CAS or my local site. The blue drop down menu in the top left would be nice to have as an accessible feature during this time.

                        Thanks,

                        • On the webpage ConfigMgr 1806 is showing available July 31, 2018. It is not showing up when I "Check for updates" on 1802 Hotfix KB4342419

                          Previous updates have shown up in the Updates and Servicing when soon after I clicked on "Check for updates".
                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/manage/updates is showing 1806 being released on July 31, 2018.
                          I've tried to get that update several times since then, but it's not showing up.

                            • Please add folder support in Endpoint Protection - Antimalware Policies

                              We manage desktops and servers in the same SCCM infrastructure but by different teams. When we create antimalware policies, we have resorted to prefixing every entry with either desktop - ... or server - ... This would be great to support a folder structure to keep this clean. We have 45 policies so far and that list will probably swell to 75 or 100. RBA per folder would be a bonus.

                                  It would be great to have a secondary icon in the "Devices" view to indicate whether the VM machine type: VMWare/Hyper-V etc

                                  Perhaps if it's possible you could have a secondary icon indicate a Blue Cloud for MS Azure, Orange for AWS and Google Cloud icon.
                                  (I don't know how you'd differentiate the cloud providers, perhaps a property on the boundary group to say that the boundaries contained in the group live within a certain Cloud Service Provider - or maybe there's a better/simpler way ... )

                                    • distribute content wizard

                                      When I am adding distribution points to a package it pops up that specified ones do not have a source distribution point that contains the content.
                                      It is not true and seems to come by default and not upon a check.

                                      • Stop Auto search of software updates

                                        The Updates search should wait for filters or wait until the search button is clicked.

                                        I find myself having to wait for the search to complete before I can add filters and get meaningful results.

                                        • console installation command line

                                          Please check command line installation for the admin console, defautsiteservername is ambiguous, somtimes i need to type it without quotes, some other times i have to get in between quotes, and other time i have to get it after the two quotes,ie ""site_server_name
