  1. Resultant set of Client Settings should show what policy set the page

    If you use several custom client settings, it can be difficult to piece together which one was controlling the actual resultant settings. Add a column on the right which shows the name and priority of the policy that controlled the page (or all that contributed to it for things that are merged... when you get to doing this for antimalware policies)

  2. 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?

  3. There is a possibility that SCCM does in Azure Backup.

    With more integrated Azure services within SCCM, you could have a Azure Backup integration, creating your blob, which you can do a local copy (cache) and then send to Azure Backup, the status you can follow in the console of the SCCM and have the option to generate alert via e-mail.
    Of course in addition to the option of Backup is very important to have the option of Restore.

  4. Integrate Announcement Settings

    Integrate Annoucement settings to the console like the product Cireson Configuration Manager Ticker app. Send schedule or as soon as possible notification directly for user's display.

  6. Quick view devices that require an update from the Software Library

    At the moment there is no quick way to see which particular machines require an update. You can run a report from Monitoring, but that means identifying the update then going back to reports and running the appropriate report.

    You can however see the the number of devices that require an update when looking at that particular update. A simple "More Details" button here would be useful which would show the machines that require the update or are compliant etc, without needing to run a report.

    This applies to both Software Updates and Windows 10 Updates for feature updates.

  7. Columns with numbers should sort using natural, not alphanumeric order.

    When sorting by a column with numbers, can you please make the console sort correctly and not just on the first digit? Currently I see 99, 94, 92, 909, 9085, 90, 9, 9, 9, 8852, 8771.......... and that is not very useful.

  8. Remember selected option for All Subfolders in Search

    There was a uservoice that requested when searching in the console that All Subfolders be automatic. This request is now set to complete as of March 2017 however the functionality is still not automatic and does not remember as you move through the console.

    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8342127-automatically-search-all-sub-nodes

    Having the ability for this to be remembered or the ability to set this as default under search settings would reduce the constant need to select All Subfolders when searching and switching between different views in the console.

  9. Manage Deployment of Console Updates

    I would be good if applying an update to Configuration Manager also either:
    - initiated the creation of an application/collection/deployment to upgrade administrator consoles, or
    - provided the ability for the console to update itself by kicking off a background service to install the update for non-administrator users.

    It's great that the console now notifies the user when it's out of date, but the process of applying these updates really needs to be streamlined. Something similar to automatic client upgrade would be amazing.

  10. 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!

  11. have the ability to show the 'security scopes' column everywhere in the console

    if you have an environment with a deep RBA scoping, it is not Always easy to quickly see which object is secured by which scope in the console as you cannot enable the column 'security scopes' everywhere in the console..
    please change this, I'm talking about boundary groups, queries, site, DP groups, DP, global conditions, driver packages

  12. System Status sort order by icon or status

    When looking System Status> Site Status or Component status you can order by column headers. When clicking on Icon - desired sort order would be red,yellow,green (or opposite) and when clicking on Status then Critical,Warning, OK ( or opposite) .
    At moment it is mixed, ie not in severity order, but more like yellow,green, red.
    If there is long list of rows and it doesnt fit on screen You must click and scroll several times.

  13. Have username somewhere in the console,

    Have username somewhere in the console, for example in the top right corner.
    Often, I open consoles with different usernames, to check RBAC and I somethimes, I do not know which one belongs to which user.
    Tks

  16. Copy Column Headings When Using Ctrl + C

    Its a fairly basic requirement for Collections and Queries, and as SCCM's data comes from SQL which has a console that allows you to copy and paste query results INCLUDING the column headings, it has to be a simple task surely?

    Whether it is simple or not, copying and pasting data from Collections and particularly Queries is a very frequent task for most admins, and is huge time saver compared to creating Reports.

    So, please can you add this in?

  17. 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.

  18. Re-Run Notification

    It would be great if we can re-run a deployment notification for the users.

    Example:
    We have deployed the windows 10 build upgrade task sequence but with a deadline 2 months in the future. It would be great if we can set an additional notification for the upgrade because the most of our users forgot to start the deployment manually. It would be great to send them an additional notification as example at the evening around 4:30pm or manually during the day.

  19. Change the behavior of selecting in a filtered list

    The current behavior of selection in a filtered list in at least the TS step "Auto Apply Drivers" (with limit driver matching) and also the Schedule Updates Wizard (those two places are confirmed the behaviour could be present elsewhere) is counterintuitive and even a little dangerous.

    If you select any of the options there while no filtered, then set a filter that excludes your previously selected option and afterwards clear the filter, the first option becomes unselected. This is even true if selected options were already saved.

    I do not know if this is a bug or a very strangeā€¦
