  1. Deploy Software Wizard - Content destination section bypass checkbox or allow to click Next without waiting for everything to load.

    Our environment has 1,000+ Distribution Points currently and I imagine a lot of other Enterprises would enjoy not having to sit through long wait times for all their Distribution Points to load into the Wizard's view when all they want to do is Deploy Software without specifying additional Content Destinations because it is already distributed everywhere it is needed.

  2. Multilevel sorting in console

    When sorting collections in the console we should be able to sort based on one field then by another field. As I am trying to do now, I've sorted computers by which have clients and which don't and then I would like them sorted by computer name.

  3. I think it would be helpful to be able to uninstall features.

    Under \Administration\Overview\Updates and Servicing\Features\ I would like to be able to turn features off that were previously turned on.

  4. Bug report: task sequences previously viewed disappear after "view content status"

    when viewing "references" of a task sequence, then following "view content status" for a package with < 100% compliance, and "redistributing" that package to whichever DP(s) have errors, and then going back to "software library" and viewing the others in the "references" tab for the same TS, the entire list of TSes in the previous place disappear

  5. Windows Update for Business policy console resolution

    The default size of the Windows Update for Business Policy Wizard dosnt scale with low resolution. At the default Hyper-V console resolution the entire windows dosnt fit, and therefore the "next" button is hidden by the taskbar. An edge-case, but annoying :)

  6. Enhance Drivers Package Properties - Add the option to make the predownloadrule syntax an exact match vs the default

    SCCM Admin Console

    Enhance Drivers Package Properties - Add the option <radio button> to make the predownloadrule syntax an exact match vs the default 'LIKE'.

    For example we have Latitude 7400 and Latitude 7400 2-in-1. The download rules using Like an % match both for the 7400 2-in1 and predownload 2 driver packs instead of 1.

  7. 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.

  8. Client discovery info to CMPivot

    ConfigMgr client's discovery info has many very useful attributes like OS build, client version, distinguished name, groups, OUs, sites etc.

    Unfortunately, discovery info is not available with CMPivot.

  9. Improve package and task sequence export to include deployment information

    We often export packages from QA to production, but the export does not include the deployments. Also, collections are not included so we have to 1. export collections, 2. Export TS or package, 3. Manually recreate the deployments.

  11. Duplicate Windows Update for Business policies

    It would be useful to be able to copy or duplicate WUfB policies within the ConfigMgr console. Generally, most organisations would have more than one policy and often they would be the same but with a different deferral value. A straight duplicate would save having to go through the options again and risk making a mistake.

  12. Devices as Active Directory View / Integrate AD Users & Computers

    Given the account had proper permissions, maybe integrate Active Directory Users & Computers into the Devices view? Allow for dragging machines/users around in OUs/Containers from within the console.

  13. 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.

  14. Selected collection lost if check box not ticked

    When including collections, in collection membership, the select collections box has checkboxes. If I select a collection to include, then click OK, the selection is lost / not remembered. I know I have to tick that tiny box, but I always forget. And I have to go the round trip of navigating to that collection again ... it's just not intuitive.
    What would help is if the tickbox got selected when I click the item, and what would also be good is if highlighting, instead of tickboxes, was the UI element that showed what was selected - so ctrl-select, shift-selectā€¦

  15. Display the name of the currently logon account

    Our corporation allows us to logon to Configuration Manager 1910 with our Domain Admin and our user account simultaneously because they have different rights within Configuration Manager. Can you add the same button (see attached) as it has been in Windows OS to display the name of the currently logon account?

  17. Offer a unlock button to unlock editing an app after the console crash

    When the console crash while editing an app, the edited app is locked during 30 min before a user can edit it again. Only ReadOnly is possible.
    I can't unlock the app by the interface.
    Please, add a unlock button

  18. For the Admin Console, a parameter to launch it targeting primary sites, so you can have icons for multiple primary's

    At present, i can only launch the console and then 'Connect To a New Site' - not great if you want to automate launching the console to point to different primary's. You could have "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe" /target:"machine.fqnd.com"

  19. The "Create Package and Program Wizard" in SCCM should give you the option to distribute content. Sometimes I forget to distribute content

    The "Create Package and Program Wizard" in SCCM should give you the option to distribute content. Sometimes I forget to distribute content after creating a package.
