  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Add columns for created by/date and modified by/date to queries node view

    Add date created, date modified and created\modified by columns to the queries node view. Also, enable searching sub-folders from the queries node.

  4. 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.)

  5. 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.

  6. 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 toā€¦

  7. 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.

  8. SCCM Reports - Option to create Favorites

    It would be a nice option to create favorites of ConfigMgr-Reports. There are over 500 built-in reports and many admins are spends a lot of time for searching.

  9. Copy Query

    In the Reports area, there is a query area. It would be nice if we could copy a query. We have not found a good way of doing this.

  10. Application deployment reporting - Report to retain data after re-evaluation of collection(s)

    application model doesnā€™t retain the data points as the systems falls out by using a limiting collection or ā€œNot inā€ logic or have to clear the logic for a failed deployment.

    Once the systems fall out of the collection we lose the ability to pull reports on them.

    This same method works with the package deployment reports, using a limiting or ā€œnot inā€ logic the data points remains even after the system fall out of the collection.

    is there a table that can be create leverage to capture historical data to make a custom report for application deployment for collectionsā€¦

  11. Ability to Export Task Sequence (TS) for Documentation Purposes in Friendly Format

    It would incredibly useful to have a native ability in ConfigMgr to export a task sequence into an easily viewed format that can be utilised as part of design documentation for customers. Either into an Excel spreadsheet with appropriate formatting or possibly html.

    The alternative to this is complex Excel spreadsheets which are very time consuming or using unsupported export methods such as those described in this TechNet blog post: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/deploymentguys/2009/02/20/documenting-your-task-sequences-automagically-update-v2/

    I know quite a few consultants who would absolutely love to see this feature added to save a lot of time and effort which could otherwise be utilised doingā€¦

  12. Link the Statistics to a report.

    Link the Statistics to a report. Like required is 100, it should link to a report showing the 100 machines.
    examples:
    It should show for Compliant, required, not required and Unknown.
    For Windows updates and Windows 10 servicing upgrades.
    Windows 10 servicing should link to reports showing the computer numbers.

  13. SCCM Report - Easy way to create Report & Dashboard

    Not really easy to create some SCCM report or Dashboard if your're not a SQL DBA .. even with Report Builder.
    Could be awesome to have a new tool where Reports or Dashbaord could be created easily whithout searching which SQL views I need ..ect ... Like some others concurrent application give.

  14. Create "Missing Updates" overview and detail report to help us patch all the things with all the patches

    I'd love to see two new reports added to help systems managers ensure they patch all the things with all the patches.

    The overview report should be filterable by Collection and include Client Name, Last Scan Time, Total Missing Updates, and then totals for each Update Classification.

    The detail report should have the same filters as Compliance 5 except it should NOT have the Update Class field (If you add that, people will still just deploy only some updates, which is not the point of this report). The columns should be the same data as Compliance 5, but only returnā€¦

  15. SQL Server 2016, Reporting services

    Hi,

    SQL Server 2016 and Reporting Services is shaping up to be a gigantic upgrade! The new Reporting services actually looks like a tool from this century! And Power BI is just amazing.

    Is there any roadmap or info of when will SCCM will support SQL Server 2016 or just Reporting Services 2016?

  16. 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 :)

  17. Option to copy dashboard / monitoring code. to be able to use in external reporting tool

    Consider to implement the option to copy/export the code from a dashboard or monitoring view. this should be the SQL code, that generates the view
    This would give the possibility to present the data in e.g. PowerBI, Servicenow, Cherwell etc. and at the same time remove the requirement for SCCM console access for users with reporting requirements.
    The scope could be all nodes under monitorting

  18. Report to include memory under 4GB in a specific model

    In this section of SCCM: \Monitoring\Overview\Reporting\Reports\Hardware - Memory, it would be great to be able to see all computers that have less than 4GB of RAM, based on model. For example, I want to know how many of the Dell 3440s have 2GB so I can order more RAM for them.
    Thanks!

  19. Run a powershell script when an alert is triggered to allow integration with 3rd party tools

    The ability to create email subscriptions gives rudimentary notification when alerts happen. The ability to run a powershell script would open the possibility of integrating with 3rd party monitoring and notification systems. Current systems such as Solarwinds, PRTG,nagios/icinga2 and others have REST interfaces that can easily be addressed from powershell. This kind of integration would enable shops that choose not to run SCOM a way to integrate SCCM alerts into their existing monitoring set ups.

    Ideally the script call would be able to pass the alert data to the script in some fashion.

  20. relative time options for scheduled reports

    if you plan a report, e.g. "Antimalware overall status and history", to run every 1st day each month for example, you can only enter fixed dates for the report.
    There should be relative options like "first day of previous month" (see SCOM for good examples)
