  1. Dataware house service point and MBAM compliance information (sccm 1702 and later)

    When sccm deletes old computer information (as per the scheduled system maintenace task), compliance information for Bitlocker is also removed for that computer.
    Can the datawarehouse servicepoint also copy MBAM compliance to the datawarehouse database (when MBAM is integrated with SCCM).

  2. Duplicate or Copy Report Subscriptions

    It would be a great feature to have the ability to copy or duplicate a report subscription. Often we have to create a new report subscription that matches an existing subscription (for updates compliance) before we are done using the existing subscription.

    Being able to copy a subscription will save a lot of work if the description, notes, schedule are all the same. All you have to do is change the update group in the parameters.

  3. Create email subscription for all active alerts

    It would be nice to have a generic subscription for all new active alerts, rather than having to create a subscription to each alert.

    I want to be notified of any alert that comes up by email. (Option warning/critical level).

  4. Access user/computer focussed reports from the device/user collections

    If I right click on a computer in a collection there are many contextual items on the menu. It would be useful for us to be able to launch the 'compliance 5 - specific computer' report for that computer directly from the menu. there are other device centric reports focussed on the hostname that could be easily accessible.
    Possibly access the report from the same area as the 'primary user' link in the summary pane.

  6. Modify Custom Reports without Site Modify

    The ability to edit reports is based is based on assigned roles. If you create a separate folder for custom reports then you must give the users modify permission on the site so that their accounts are added into the 'ConfigMgr Report Administrators' SSRS role at the root report folder. That's a lotta permission just to edit custom reports. So ideally there'd be an RBA role permission for any report not covered by existing permissions. Really anything that disassociates that ability from modifying sites.

  7. Expand Software Tag inventory to include optional elements

    Some software vendors include optional elements that are not gathered by the Asset Intelligence Software Tag Inventory. Adobe for example places the serial number in this section, and without being able to gather that serial number its impossible to tell what version of Acrobat is installed on a PC without writing convoluted scripts/CIs. Please expand the software tag inventory scan to include optional elements. Example of an Adobe software tag below

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <swid:software_identification_tag xsi:schemaLocation="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd software_identification_tag.xsd"
    xmlns:swid="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd&quot; xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

    <!--Mandatory Identity elements -->
    <swid:entitlement_required_indicator>true</swid:entitlement_required_indicator>
    <swid:product_title>Adobe Acrobat</swid:product_title>
    <swid:product_version>
    <swid:name>12.0</swid:name>
    <swid:numeric>
    <swid:major>12</swid:major>
    <swid:minor>0</swid:minor>
    <swid:build>0</swid:build>
    <swid:review>0</swid:review>
    </swid:numeric>
    </swid:product_version> ā€¦

  9. Mobile Device User Relationship. Intune Hybrid Setup- Reporting feature to list primary devices for users.

    Ability to generate a report in SCCM to list Primary mobile device for a user. Lack of this reporting feature creates additional overhead to MDM Administrators in identifying the user's device to take any remote actions. E.g. The device name could be "iPhone" There can be 100's of device with name "iPhone". This should be a very basic reporting capability that should have been in place. Kindly consider this request and introduce this reporting feature.

  10. 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.

  11. 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€¦

  13. Add Build01 to v_r_system_valid to display the OS Build number

    Currently you can find the Windows 10 build number in v_r_system, but not v_r_system_valid. As most reports are only looking for valid clients, it would be beneficial to be able to query the Windows 10 build version without joining to another view.

  14. GroupPolicy reporting CI

    As there may be situations that admin would like to get extensive reporting if GPOs are in place and effective as planned in their organization, would be nice to have some dropdowns or listitems of GPOs that one could select to be as Configuration Items.

    1000's of GPOs are available but sure MS has some ready list/xml/whatever that could be included in SCCM CI so reporting of GPOs, as they are just reg values, would be possible.

  15. Manage the reports Subscription

    When you have many users and also many subscriptions on reports, you have an anarchy view of reports subscription .

    Does it possible to add the feature )> create folders for manage the reports on server ?
    Like this for exemple

    http:\\servername\reports\ (Subscriptions Folder)

    We must open each reports with the same function (same title) to do some modifications.

  17. Mail Notification for Collection changes

    We use install and uninstall Collections for Application Deployment over AD-Group (installation) and Softwareinventory (uninstall). When the number of clients in a collection is changing an email notification would be great.

  18. Send report subscriptions to an MS hosted Sharepoint site

    I currently have over 60 reports that I have to copy on a daily basis to 13 different directories (due to their content/category) on a SharePoint site, as the OneDrive sync tool has issues, not to mention that persistent drive mapping to an MS hosted SharePoint site is not consistent, and I have to remap the drive when the site is failed over to a different server for patching, etc.
    Manually copying these files is tedious.

  19. 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.

  20. 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€¦
