  1. Merge Windows 10 Servicing menu to Software Updates menu

    Hello Team,

    I have noticed that when we create a Windows 10 Servicing plan, that the deployement package is on the Sofware Updates -> Deployment Packages.

    And so may be i think it could be nice to get all option on the same way : i mean it should be annoying to navigate from Windows 10 Servicing menu to Software Updates menu in order to find the Windows 10 Servicing Deployment Packages.

  2. ADR for servers need some love

    We are using ADR for a pilot group and then for two different automatic groups, but we cant use it for our manual group.

    What i would love to see:

    1: Be able to configure multiple deploys within the same ADR. today we are using three ADR just because it deploys to different collections with different maintenance windows.

    2: Be able to use the ADR for our manual group, deploy the patches to our collection for manual servers as Available! When we need to go in to CM just to deploy patches already deployed just to get them as availableā€¦

  3. Integrate Microsoft Custom Support program into SCCM.

    The current process requires logging into a separate website; downloading the required updates, Scan cab files and/or .xml files running the WSUS Import tool or wsusutil.exe. Then you need to approve the updates in WSUS and then maybe, if nothing went wrong somewhere must run a sync with SCCM in order to make the updates available through Software Updates in SCCM.

  5. Add 'Member Count' to Deployment Wizard

    When deploying Software, Updates etc. the Deployment Wizard should show the actual 'Member Count' of a collection like in the example screenshot.

    In addition in the Deployment Overview the 'Assets Targeted' column should be displayed as default and immediately display something after a deployment has been created. Currently it can take quite a long time before you can see the actual amount of clients targeted.

    This will make it easier for Sys Admins to prevent accidental deployments

  6. 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.

  7. Add the new "Release Preview" ring to the Windows 10 Servicing feature of ConfigMgr Current Branch.

    Microsoft has added a new release ring for Windows 10 called "Release Preview" which is closer to Current Branch than the Insider Previews (Fast/Slow). This seems like a great candidate for organizations to use with their existing production pilot programs so they can test against their key use cases of technology before wider deployment. Using this ring for testing would buy more time if issues are found before the end of a branch's servicing/support life cycle. It can also help organizations plan for new features better ahead of time.

  8. Force clients to download updates from Microsoft update site.

    With more and more people working from home these days, having the ability to specify in a Software Update Group deployment to force download from MS update site would be terrific. I'd still like those clients to download content for applications from the internal DP over VPN, but downloading monthly updates would be much quicker if you could force them to use internet instead of VPN.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Add filter bar to the Updates node of Windows 10 Servicing

    In ConfigMgr 1511, the "All Windows 10 Updates" node has no filter bar as we have for Software Updates. There are lots of elements listed and the number will increase with the future Windows 10 Builds.
    It could be very helpful to get a filter bar which allows to filter on languages, build, SKU, etc.

  13. 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

  14. extended criteria for ADR's and more than one product when doing manual searches

    I would love to have more criteria options for ADRs. It would be nice to be able to pick from a date range. Or have a yes or no option to is it deployed as well as all the other options when you do a manual search. Also when you do a manual search, it would be nice to be able to select more than one product at a time.

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. Take a look at Ninte and make sccm a bit more like that.

    Ninte.com manages app updates in a very elegant way that I think sccm could implement for patches. What i am most intrigued is that I can single out a machine and check, or single out an update and check from the same console.

  18. Better define Software Update Supersedence Tab

    The supersedence behavior is misleading and poorly documented. If you select the months to wait to expire an update and select 1, it is in effect the same result as immediately expiring any updates they are superdeded. The reality is that if you want to keep a patch for a month after it is superseded, you need this value to be 2.

    Very misleading...

  19. "Cluster Aware" Patching Variables

    With the new Cluster Aware patching in TP3, I would like to see dynamic variables that you can call into your pre and post scripts that would tell you which machines are currently getting patched, and which machines are currently up. This would allow admins to write a more simplistic script where it queries a variable instead of having to build a script that test connections and make sure its not installing software updates. Example scenario would be patching Hyper-V clusters, where you need to keep all VM's up and running. We could query the variable, to move the VMsā€¦

  20. Graphs on Software Update Compliancy report

    Please could you add graphs to more reports. Specifically Compliance 1 - Overall compliance, so when you run the report a pie chart is created. Thanks
