  1. 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.

  2. Enable url-like shortcuts to nodes in the console (ie. deployment saved searches)

    I check up on deployments every few hours, would love to be able to create a shortcut on my desktop to "Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe \Monitoring\Searches\Search99"

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Have Cloud Management Gateway Dashboard

    Add a Dashboard for a better visibility on how many clients are managed by each CMG + bytes downloaded for organizations to know usage statistics for the service and make decisions like add\remove CMGs based on the data

  8. Update SCEP import to handle JSON

    The current SCEP import only handles XML feeds for import through the SCCM console. XML is no longer supported and is replaced by JSON, can we please have the import updated to handle JSON instead?

  9. 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.

  10. Easier navigation between a deployment's properties and status in the admin console

    When I am in the Monitoring Workspace viewing the status of Deployments, I often want to open/edit the properties of a specific deployment. This should be accessible by right clicking the deployment, instead of having to make note of the update group or application being deployed and manually finding it in the software library to get to it's properties.

    The reverse process should also be easier. If I am in the Software Library viewing a software update group or application and select a specific deployment for that application, I should have a right click option for 'view status', which wouldā€¦

  11. Add a GitHub-Style Commit dialog for all changes.

    The idea around this is to capture "what was changed" for things such as Updating Package/Deployment Type Content, Changing Application Metadata, Changing CI/Baselines.

    The commit description would then also be added into the Revision History so if you had to roll back (or were nosey and wanted to see what was going on) you could look at the revision notes to see what was changed, and who changed it.

    The ability to toggle this on/off should be available since not everyone will want this (especially for labs).

  13. SCCM - Better Exchange Connect configuration with Exchange Online

    A simple Exchange Connector installation for Exchange Online is missing.
    It should be intuitive and easy like the configuration with the Exchange Server On-premise.

  14. Centralise Console extensions

    Please have the ability to set a repository for console extensions that the business uses. An admin could deploy the extension to the repo, then all consoles could enable it or keep disabled.

    The way community extensions get installed/activated may need an overhaul.

  15. Add new Device tab with custom properties (Variables)

    When selecting one or multiple devices in the console, it would be very helpful to have an additional tab at the bottom (next to "Summary", "Client Settings", "Collections", etc.) with "Custom Properties" where console users can select from predefined, custom properties such as "Language", "Company", "OS", Device Type", "Deployment Ring" or any other properties that are relevant for a company.
    These properties should then be available as variables during OSD and during normal task sequences.
    Admins should be able to predefine and customize the available properties depending on the needs of the company. There should be a way to createā€¦

  17. In a CAS Hierarchy, allow Existing Accounts to be used across multiple Primary Sites

    In a CAS hierarchy, it is necessary to either create new accounts for each Primary Site (for example, Client Push), or enter the same details for the same account more than once, which results in multiple accounts with the same name. It would be better to be able to use one account across multiple Primary sites, such that entering a New account once one one site allows that selection as an Existing account at another Primary Site.

  18. AdminConsole is using 30% CPU on Windows 10 1703 - DWM.exe 15% - When minimized CPU usage is 1-5%...

    The adminconsole is causing the machine to chug like crazy. It was fine in Windows 10 1607, but once 1703 was installed DWM.exe and the adminconsole process CONSTANTLY eat 30-50% cpu making the machine near unusable. Someone else has to be experiencing this.

    I am running on a Surface Pro 3 with two external 1440p monitors, doesn't matter if they are connected or not, the SP3 within 5 minutes kicks on the fan, all other tasks just chug (OWA, Edge, etc.)

  19. Task sequence media - compute space does not consider removed applications/packages

    When creating stand-alone media you have the option to select which Applications,Packages and driver packages it should include onto the media or not. After clicking next on the summary page the process of starting the media launches. in the createTSMedia.log you can see that at some point the process starts to compute volume layout. It seems that the compute of the volume layout does take into account the software you selected to not be on the media. Therefore you might get the message that you do not have enough space on the USBFD media altough this is not trough. Atā€¦

  20. Set a Default Security Scope for user

    It would be nice to be able to assign a default security scope to a user.
    Ie; if someone creates a package, sccm assigns their set security scope(s) to the package instead of manually setting it.
