  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

    application model doesn’t retain the data points as the systems falls out by using a limiting collection or “Not in” 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 “not in” 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 collections…

  4. 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 doing…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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 return…

  8. 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?

  9. Seggregating SQL tables/views for SCCM Application and for Admins

    1286 tables and 7153 views, makes it an extensive and difficult job for SCCM Admins to create custom reports, as herculean task for finding where needed info exits, sometime data is available in multiple table/views, makes it tough to decide. Do you think it helps to re/design table or views naming structure in such a way that, set of them are meant for SCCM application for internal purposes which we don’t user for reporting purposes, and a second set of them are meant for SCCM Admin for creating report purposes, making the naming convention and data available in later section…

  10. 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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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)

  14. Historical Client Connections - Management Point

    It would be great to be able to report on within SQL how many clients in total have connected to a Management Point/s.

    The scenario being for example, in a newly configured IBCM environment it would be nice to be able to report on how many clients in total have connected to one of the IBCM enabled MP's, business use being able to report on current uptake.

    Currently you can report on LastScan but that is unfortunately only taken as a current snapshot and data would change as clients move back and forth between Internet and Intranet networks.

  15. Compliance tracking per system on a time series. Ideally you could set your aggregation interval, vendor, and update classification.

    Would like to have a Table with a Resource ID , timestamp , and compliance %, vendor and Update Classification. The table aggregation interval could be daily or weekly, or follow data warehouse sync. With a capture of system specific data we can build BI reports per system, and aggregate per customer groupings. This would be a win for executive level reporting to show how every month SCCM moves the enterprise to compliant, as compliance percent drops on 2nd Tuesday and move up throughout the month. Detail level data is needed to drive exceptions (read snowflakes) into standard best practices.

  17. Windows 10 Dashboard - Include Windows 7 devices

    As we get closer to the EOL of Winodws 7, it would be cool to have another widget in the Windows 10 servicing dashboard that shows Win10 v Win7 usage and the EOL date. Its a small thing but some additional visibility like that could help kick some orgs in the rear to get going on the upgrade to Win10.

  18. Allow normal SQL queries instead of WQL

    Writing queries requires using WQL which has a very stripped back feature set. Please allow normal SQL queries to be used.

  20. Add a way to see what servers are core installation

    Would be nice to be able to tell within the console, or via a collection which servers are installed as server core, or with desktop experience without jumping through hoops.
