  1. Show settings changed from default in bold

    As it does in the IIS and SQL management consoles, show any configuration settings that are changed from default in bold text.
    Perhaps also show the default value as a hover-over popup.

  2. Add 'are you sure' logic to buttons in the ribbon

    Would be great to have a prompt for certain buttons in the ribbon to verify you clicked the correct button. Many, many times I want to click 'refresh' on a collection only to accidentally click 'copy'. Not a huge issue, but an annoyance where I have to them delete the unwanted collection.

  4. Add a right click or ribbon option for Update Pack Installation Status dialog

    A simple addition in theory (I hope) which seems logical.
    The scenario is - when viewing the Updates and Servicing node, I generally run a pre-req check first. When my pre-req check has warnings I want to see them. Currently I have to go to show status (bottom right) which takes me into the monitoring workspace, then show status again from the ribbon. Could we have that "Update Pack Installation Status" dialog directly from a right click or ribbon from the Servicing node?
    This would also be useful for checking installation status when running the upgrade without opening the CMUpdate.logā€¦

  5. change

    1. Phased deployment should be extended to all deployments [application, package, patch] and not limited to only TS
    2. real-time monitoring of OS migration and upgrade
    3. Extend the feature that is available in 1802 for dashboards to displays a list of relevant devices when graph sections are selected for all dashboards
    4. Reboot management - need better control and customization. Enterprise look at giving more options to users. Similar to allowing IT admin customize the software center, reboot option should also be allowed for customization by IT.

  6. Add 'Connect via VSCode' under 'Connect via Windows PowerShell ISE'

    VSCode is more robust than PowerShell ISE and is quickly becoming a replacement for PowerShell ISE all over. Incorporating VSCode (or perhaps even a way to define an editor to connect with) would be fantastic!

  7. 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.

  9. 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€¦

  10. Retain Searches with Backward and Forward button in Console

    Scenario.

    1. Search for an application
    2. Go to any other node like collections and search for a collection
    3. now if you use backward button it will take you to the applications node and you would need to search for the application again.

    Of course the recent searches will help us in this case. But associating backward and forward buttons with Recent Searches gives good UX.

  12. Add Folder option to Boundaries & Boundary Groups

    In order to keep better organization, it would be nice to have folders in the boundary and boundary group section of the administration task.

  13. Make it easier to search or anything. Currect search for people or PC's is terrible

    System Center Configuration is the worst at finding information. If you don't know what you are looking for, it can't be found.

  14. Device Supersede

    Copy associated device collections of one device to another.

    I'll explain

    Computer A is old and needs to be replaced. It is slated to be replaced with Computer B.

    Currently at this point I need to manually remove Computer A from all the Device collections manually. And then Manually add Computer B to those same collections.

    It would be lovely if I could supersede a device. So right click on device , and have option to supersede. Then dialogue box pops up and asks for a device. Much like the current "Add Resource" search box.

    Then Computer A is removedā€¦

  15. Allow multiple versions of the console to be installed

    Allow multiple versions of the Admin Console to be installed and used on a single system.
    In environments where multiple hierarchies are in use not all will be on the same version. This forces the use of multiple systems with the corresponding console version for remote management or the use of a down level console when only a single system is available.

  16. 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.

  18. Selected Client Setting is Lost when Changing Priority

    If you sort and then re-prioritize a given client setting it does not maintain the selection. So if you want prioritize something multiple times you need to re-select it every time.

  20. Mark and remove multiple Content Locations from the package properties

    Since a long time it is only possible to delete one Content Location at a time. This becomes very tedious when dealing with several dozens of distribution points.
    This request is to offer multiple select and deletion for content locations.
