  1. Manageability of the TPM Chip with ConfigMgr

    The ideal situation, covering multiple different requests here at UV, would be to be capable to manage the TPM (v)Chip during lifetime of an endpoint.
    OSD: For example, clear, enable, initiate, take ownership, Adapt the Physical Presence Interface for the Clear action of the TPM at the beginning of the TS. This would allow to adapt the Preprovisioning BitLocker step to immediately take the advantage of the TPM Chip. If the Physical Presence Interface has been adapted for the clear action, show a message for the user to accept the change, etc.. .Part of Device Health Attestation reporting, report theā€¦

  2. 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    It's great that the console now notifies the user when it's out of date, but the process of applying these updates really needs to be streamlined.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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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€¦

  8. 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.

  9. Add a Favourites feature to the SCCM 2012 Console. Favourites would allow user to "jump to" various points within console.

    Add a Comments field to the device record and allow an admin to update it via the console.

  11. Add column to display Computer Description in Devices list

    For us admins systems it is information we miss, because we have server numbers but do not know what application is running behind. When we have more than 500 servers it is not easy to memorize all the roles.

  14. Show the client boundary group membership

    Make it possible to show what boundary group the client had at the last hardware inventory in the console, maybe like a column when looking a collection and or in the devices node. -> it helps you to see what site system might be faulty and or what boundaries are missing in the environment.

  15. 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. When retiring an app allow the app to retire associated Apps.

    Currently you can't even retire the dependent app then retire the main app, at least allow the main at to retire with an association to an already retired app.

  20. 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.
