  1. ADR-Search criteria (Software Updates)

    when creating/editing ADR, the list of software updates (products, languages, etc) should list only the information that has been selected on the sup information.

    ie. it should not list all products or languages if you only have selected english and windows 10.

  2. Bug - SCCM 2012 SP2 CU3 - Software Updates are all set to a 10 minute timeout.

    All software updates are set to 10 minutes, and newer SCCM will set the new cumulative updates to 30 minutes. But SCCM 2012 leaves this setting at 10 minutes. Some updates are already 1gb+ in size, therefore are timing out when deployed.

  3. Windows 10 Servicing - Usage & Ring Tiles Should Produce List of PCs When Clicked

    When you view the new Windows 10 Servicing dashboard in 1511/1602, you see these awesome graphical tiles that give you a snapshot of your Windows 10 usage and rings in your organization. However, when you hover your mouse over those two tiles and click, nothing happens other than you're presented with a percentage. It would be great if the area you select and click gives you a list of PCs broken down so you see what machines fall into what bucket. Very useful for troubleshooting too.

  4. Add support for "Hotfix" Update classification

    SCCM should be able to support all updates made available in the MS catalog.
    The MS Update Catalog lists hotfixes which makes WSUS more useful than SCCM. If WSUS can rollout a hotfix why can't SCCM?
    Example KB2728738 is a hotfix available in the MS Update Catalog (http://Catalog.Update.microsoft.com/v7/Site/Search.aspx?q=2728738) yet it can not be imported to SCCM as the "Hotfix" class is not available.
    MS Support suggest to follow an non MS consultants blog http://ccmexec.com/2012/02/installing-multiple-windows-7-hotfixes-msu-with-sccm/
    As MS continue to create more and more Hotfixes in replacement of proper updates this makes SCCM Update component less and less useful.

  5. Windows 10 Servicing Mode and ADR settings

    Since updating to SCM 1511 the new Windows 10 Servicing mode has no option to 'add to an existing Software Update Group'.
    Also the Automatic Deployment Rule properties tabs do not exist altogether as they did pre SCCM 1511. Yet they all exist for the Windows 10 Servicing Mode.

  7. Configure multiple deployments in One Software Update Group

    Hi,

    After the successful implementation of the following, https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8386953-configure-multiple-deployments-in-an-automatic-dep, which is really nice. How about the possibility to extend this and instead of creating several SUGs with different deployments create one SUG with multiple deployments?

  8. Install Updates and reboot immediately if no-one is logged on

    Install Updates and reboot immediately if no-one is logged on

    In our environment users log off at night and leave at ctrl-alt-del. The PCs sit idle overnight. It would be nice if the system would recognize that no-one was logged on and take action immediately on its own and not wait for the deadline.

  9. Add ADR Timeframe of "Updates older than X days"

    Today, we can deploy updates using an ADR based on a number of timeframes, but most will deploy updates that came out within the last period of time.

    For instance, we can deploy updates that came out within the last month, but there is no 'Date Released' value for updates older than X or updates that came out within the last three weeks, for instance.

    A number of my customers want to wait and let the community test updates before deploying them, and we currently have to be a bit clever with our timelines to make this work.

  10. Scheduled Offline Updates - Include Microsoft Office

    We find the Scheduled Updates option incredibly helpful, however not being able to include Office Updates means we still require the occasional build and capture to include those updates in the WIM. Could the inclusion of Office Updates within Scheduled Updates be a possibility?

  12. Uninstall feature in Software Updates

    If we would be having an option to automate any of the issue patch would be grateful, which is time consuming and manual effort involved to create it as a package in SCCM.
    Which is a pain in general to uninstall(Back-out) it from the estate when an issue patch has been rolled out.

  13. Add a clickable link for the Information URL to the details pane in All Software Updates view

    This is feedback I hear from people transitioning from WSUS to ConfigMgr for updates all the time.

    Under the Software Library > Software Updates > All Software Updates view, when you select an individual Update, the details pane should include a clickable link for the "Information URL".

    This makes it easier for us to dig in to the article to see known issues, etc.

    Thanks for making ConfigMgr easier to use and troubleshoot!

  15. Software Update Management - Add Approved for Removal Option

    WSUS offers the option to remove software updates by simply adding the "approved for removal" flag to an update.
    Currently in SCCM the uninstallation of an update can only be realised in a very complicated manner (TS or software application).

    We need the "approved for removal" option via the config manager console.

  16. Filter Options for Windows Servicing Plans

    Build a custom additional filters within the Servicing Plans to only download and depoly specific Editions and/or languages.
    Most companies will only have one Edition of Windows deployed. And maybe similar with the language.

  18. Suspend Bitlocker before reboot

    When a BIOS update is being deployed, automatically suspend Bitlocker before the reboot. If this doesn't happen, you're forced to enter the recovery key which isn't very practical if you're doing a large roll out.
    FYI this is for BIOS updates for Dell coming from SCUP 2011. Probably applies to other hardware

  19. Inbuilt Mechanism To Uninstall Patch via SCCM

    Hello,

    Not sure why SCCM doesnt have an inbuilt mechanism to uninstall a patch from the SCCM console. We do have this feature to remove (Disapprove) a patch in WSUS which is a freeware.

    It is really a beneficial feature to be included as this comes up into use very frequently.

    Many Thanks
    Vikram Midha

  20. Option to set Security scope on ADRs

    ADRs do not have the option to set a security scope. In an environment with multiple departments making their own ADRs for their dept's devices, it would be useful to be able to set a security scope on the ADR itself like you can with the SUGs and Deployment Packages
