  1. Custom Update Description in Software Center

    Would be good if you could change the description of the Office 365 updates to match the update text or at least not include the paragraph about it not being possible to deploy via WSUS. It's just not something that needs to be visible in Software Center.

    Either that or allow administrators to overwrite the description visible in Software Center for users similar to custom severity. It's not a big thing, but I've had a few people ask about it.

  2. Server Reboot Sequence

    We have very custom servers and I am using Maintenance Windows to control these Reboots. I would love to see where we can control reboots on a server...For example, we reboot a server wait for it to come back up before second server gets rebooted.

  3. Automatically update software update groups when updates are superseded

    It would be nice if SCCM automatically removed superseded updates from Software Update Groups and replaced them with the superseding update. I can see the supersedence trail for each update, so SCCM can tell me the KB number of an new update that supersedes a previous update, now just make the swap!

  4. SU download from MS for DA/VPN computers only (rest via DP)

    The 1806 feature to download from MS directly is great. But once the SU is downloaded it won't work anymore. Would like to have the option to deploy in different ways (DA clients to pull from MS, on site clients from DP).

  5. Windows feature update with latest windows cummulative Update

    Provide the feature updates to newer windows version including the latest Windows CU.
    Currently the upgrade to 1803 is done to the RTM version. Thus already solved Windows bugs appear (e.g. low disk space, additional drive letter).
    When upgrading with the latest CU, these issues dont happen.
    TaskSequence is no option also the installation of the CU afterwards as the bug have raised before.
    The opened support case was closed with the information to post the DCR here.

  6. Integrate GitHub and SCUP

    When your devs publish a new version in Git it automatically creates an update catalog entry. We can then use SCUP to push that new version to our clients.

  7. Office 365 Updates

    I have seen issue in my environment with Office 365 update not applying properly if Office apps are open during installation. The update is shown as successful and restart required in Software Center. After restart original Office 365 build is still installed, next Software Update Deployment Evaluation Cycle, the update is reapplied. Only way around it for me was to close Office Apps

  8. Keep updates only in WSUS

    Allow Windows Updates to be managed through SCCM but allow users to pull the actual files from WSUS.

    In smaller environments why must I download the updates on the WSUS server than have the update sync down to the SCCM server forcing me to put 60 gig worth of updates in 2 places. This should be an option.

  9. recurring schedule

    anchored recurring schedule

    I want to propose a feature for SCCM CB that would be easy to implement and I think would be of great use to everybody. I call it anchored recurring schedule.

    So for example we can say 2nd Tuesday of the month plus a number of days. This way we can schedule deployments based on patch Tuesdays, we always deploy at a fixed offset from patch Tuesday

  10. The Office 365 updates behavior in SCCM 1802 still feels off and unpolished

    We still see prompts for closing running office applications and while Software Center displays a reboot required, the update doesn't seem to get installed unless manually triggered through the in-app notification.

  11. script query of automatic deploy rules

    PowerShell scripting or WQL queries of automatic deploy rules for selection of update filtering in the SCCM Console.

    For example, to filter out everything but ā€œFeature update to windows 10 (business editions), version 1803, en-usā€ I must use the query shown in the attachment.

    1803 OR -gb OR -consumer (1803 OR NOT gb OR NOT consumer)

    Because OR is the only logical join and the ā€˜-ā€˜ is a literal character and ā€˜-ā€˜ means NOT I have to filter with negative logic.

    A bigger issue is that when a new version comes out I must manually change the query to changeā€¦

  12. With the Upgrade Readiness, a detail report that you can export to show what WU driver or why something cant upgrade.

  14. add software update to software update group

    I would like the ability to right click > add to software update group. this would be much faster to choose my own SUG rather than waiting on the list of SUG's to populate and mark a checkbox to add the update to the SUG. this would be the same functionality as adding a device to a new collection or existing collection.

  15. Have an option to decline or stop/prevent a Windows Update from deploying from the SCCM Console.

    I wanted to block an update from deploying the other day and didn't see a button/option to say DECLINE / DONT DEPLOY within the Configuration Manager Console. I saw the update had been downloaded already, but had not been deployed. So I wanted to make sure it would not get deployed at all. I had to go into the WSUS server and decline the Update these and then re-synch the sccm database.
    Quick DECLINE or STOP / BLOCK button would be nice. Or an UNINSTALL/REMOVE button.

  16. Add vendor description to update search parameter (product)

    When you add 3rd party drivers/software/firmware updates to update catalog, you can only filter updates by names that might get confusing when you have multiple vendors. Right now the product for HP is either Firmware/Software/Driver. We can only assume Lenovo, Dell, ... Will have the same and it Will be confusing. HP Driver/HP Software/HP Firmware would make more sence and make filtering easier.

  17. "client is Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, and express download not anabled yet" error

    I have enabled express update on SCCM 1802, and my windows 7 OSes are not getting patched, instead I am getting
    "CBundledUpdate::OnJobAttach - failed with error 0x87d0066a"
    "Failed to perform Job Attach to update, error = 0x87d0066a."
    "client is Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, and express download not anabled yet" errors on UpdateHandler.log
    Not to mention there is a typo "anabled". I can't find any document about how to enable windows 7's express update function on your M$ sites.

  18. Software updates query

    I would like the software updates module have an improved filter.
    Basically I want to create filters which can use NOT LIKE on columns such as severity or Product.

  19. s int32 instead string.

    In this way we could compare built compilation versiĆ³n better. It's useful this comparation for build dynamics collections throught queries which gathers device with lower built compilation than current ones.

  20. Customized Pilot user section in Software Center

    It would ne nice to have the ability to flip a switch that allows users to then see an area in Software center where they could join the company pilot group. Currently we have to manually maintain a list of users. This way, users could opt in to the pilot group for their machine. Pilot deployments would then be distinguishable from standard deployments so the user would know what was going on. Also a way for them to send feedback to the SCCM team would be great, even if it was just a thumbs up/down.
