  1. Inbuilt report to Determine the size of userprofiles for a Specific collection

    We are currently planning on implementing OneDrive in our organization and would like to actually get an estimation of size of a User Profile for our site based collections.

    I found couple of websites that actually provided me the idea of how to implement it, but it would be better for organizations if SCCM Can actually provide an Inbuilt report to retrieve the Size of User profile for a specific collection.

  2. Custom report labels for subscriptions

    In the subscriptions I would like to be able to relabel a canned report name to what the report is doing.

  3. SCCM Reports: Add capability to search for compliance by IAVM

    Request SCCM enhancement to search for compliance by IAVM# (IAVA, IAVB) for either Enterprise-level or individual site under SCCM reports. A single IAVM may have several KB #'s (ex: MS patches) or there are very limited search capabilities for most 3rd party applications. Capability to capability to search SCCM reports by IAVM# will reduce amount of time in searching/compiling compliance metrics and will allow for quicker reporting of overall compliance.

  4. Add Schedule column to v_servicewindow

    With the SQL view vSMS_ServiceWindow, there are a column Schedules. This column allows you to see exactly what day Maintenance Window is scheduled for. The correspond supported SQL view is v_ServiceWindow. However, that column isn’t listed without it being listed there is no way to determine what day an MW applies too.

    Select distinct
    isnull(SWin.Name,'No Maintenance Windows') as 'SWinName',
    isnull(SWin.IsGMT,'') as 'SWinIsGMT',
    SWin.StartTime as 'SWinStartTime',
    isnull(SWin.Duration,0) as 'SWinDuration',
    case
    when isnull(SWin.ServiceWindowType, 0) = 0 then 'No Maintenance Windows'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=1 then 'All Programs Service Window'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=2 then 'Program Service Window'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=3 then 'Reboot Required Service Window'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=4…

  5. export list of computers from devices

    I would like to be able to go to Devices or open a collection of devices, or even from the queries section. Add whatever information I'm looking for in the "Columns to Fit" area then be able to export exactly what I have on my screen into Excel. It would make reporting so much more simple. For those small requests that managers give you.

  6. Windows 10 data usage reporting in SCCM database

    Hello,

    It would be really helpful to have Windows 10 data usage reporting added to SCCM database. With Windows 10 data usage details available as a GUI on OS itself, managements across IT would be keen have the same presented as a SCCM dashboard report. I see third party apps in Windows 10 store ;like 'Data Usage' giving very nice reports of the same. Really looking forward to have it in SCCM database.

  7. Add a report about # of current online clients

    ConfigMgr 1810 has a fabulous chart about # of current online clients per on-prem MP/internet MP/CMG within the last 30 days (Monitoring -> Cloud Management --> Online clients (last 30 days)).

    This chart is super useful to figure out how many computers are online /day/time.

    There should be a report with the same info so you could:
    - export the chart to different formats
    - schedule the report to run every 30 days to get longer trends about client usage

  8. Report to output the content of a TS and the descriptions for easy documention

    Most places i have worked have wanted the task sequence documented. It would be great if we had a report that would output the task sequence with all the steps and the comments fields.

  9. Snap to grid

    It would be so handy to have a "View Grid" option in the Report Builder design view with a "Snap to grid" feature. This will make designing the reports so much easier to align objects and text boxes etc.

  10. FIX: Distribution Point Usage Summary Report is Empty

    This report has no data:

    Home > ConfigMgr_PS1 > Software Distribution - Content > Distribution point usage summary

    Reason is the SMS_Distribution_Point_Monitoring component selects the last alphabetically stored and '*' separated MP name from registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints. This happens to be a management point in our untrusted DMZ forest and our production forest distribution points can not access this DMZ forest management point on port 443 due to firewall rules.

    When we rearrange the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints value so it will reference a production forest management point as the last '*' separated entry, the distribution point usage summary…

  11. State messages should be time stamped in the GUI

    When I look at the reporting, I'm of course especially interested in the errors.
    If there appears to be a structural problem, then a solution is developed and implemented.
    However - unless it's a change in the revision of an application - there is no clear way to distinguish between errors from before and after the change.

  12. Track and make available through console (preferably) or SSRS reporting client connection to CMG and CDP history

    We want SCCM to track, on a per individual device basis, which devices connected to CMG and/or CDP and when. We need this data for both reporting on effectiveness/utilization of CMG/CDP and also to help identify which systems are connecting versus which ones we expect to be connecting.

    Currently, data is tracked only in quantities, for example, I can see how many systems connected over CMG in the past 30 days and how much data was used, but I cannot see which devices were the ones that connected.

    Thank you.

  14. Add LastBootupTime to "Software updates - Compliance by computer" report

    The "Software updates - Compliance by computer" sub-report is an easy way to see which computers have failed updates.

    Updates often are in a "failed" state because the computer hasn't been restarted recently.

    Therefore, adding the last time the computer restarted to the report would make it easy to quickly identify if that is the likely cause of failing updates.

    (Additionally, adding "primary user" to the report would be appreciated.)

  15. Windows AutoPilot Device Information (TP 1802)

    It would be great if we could be a little more granular with this report and target it at a specific collection. I appreciate we can't add the device name into the report as it takes away the export to csv functionality but targeting a collection would help us more easily identify which machines we are importing into AutoPilot.

  16. Need Client Data Sources reports that provide more detail than the Client Data Sources Dashboard

    Ability to show client data sources used on specific deployments in Reporting would be very helpful. The Client Data Sources dashboard does not prove the granularity I'm looking for.

  17. Installed monitors report

    My idea would be for the SCCM team to create a report that collects the monitors installed on the PCs. The report would contain: PC name, last user logged on, last date when somebody logged on, Diagonal Size, Current Resolution, Max Supported Resolution, Monitor Manufacturer, Model, S/N of monitor, Date of manufacture.

    Location of report would be : Monitoring --> Reporting --> Reports --> Hardware - Monitors or create the report under the Hardware - Video Card.

    Currently there is no such report.......
    Please Microsoft SCCM team, make our lives easier :)

    You are doing a fantastic job to hear…

  18. Expand Software Inventory to include Office 365 Add-ins

    Right now we have to use Office Telemetry to determine what Office 365 Add-ins are being used in our environment. We have a need to report on what add-ins are being used and to also be able to notify users who are using unapproved add-ins.

    Please add Office-addins as an additional class of software inventory in CM.

    Using Office Telemetry is overkill and the current process is very tedious. We are currently investigating the Git-Hub Get-OfficeAddins but feel that this level of inventory collection should be native to CM. In addition to collecting the add-in inventory data, some reports to…

  20. Report for all administrative actions

    It would be nice to have a report to list all administrative actions performed by admins in a CM site. A report similar to "Administration activity log", but not limited to changes in the administrative roles section.
