  1. Software Update Group-Compliance Details

    It will be good to have a "COMPLIANCE" tab to check the compliance percentage for any SUG deployed to multiple collections. As of now, if we need to check for the compliance percent for any SUG. We cannot check it under the "Deployment" node and instead have to go to the particular collection's Deployments node to check the compliance percentage.

  2. Automatic Deployment Rules

    It would be great if when you configure a rule of automatic deployment, we could set through a calendar for the ADR-Automatic Deployment Rules run.

    In my environment, I need the rule of automatic deployment run from Monday to Friday, because I enable Wake On Lan feature to customers with upgrade and SCAN the SCEP-antimalware System Center solution Endpoint Protection set.

  3. windows 10 1803 with newer updates shows as "Other"

    Windows 10 1803 builds with more recent cumulative updates show up as "Other" on the Windows 10 servicing summary. This is with SCCM 1802 with all hotfixes installed.

  4. compliance baselines should allow for compliance checks against software update groups

    currently we can only really select individual updates for creating a compliance baseline, it would be great if we could add compliance baselines based on a software updates group

  5. 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.

  6. Windows 10 Feature Update criteria in ADR

    My software update group for workstations is generated by an ADR which allows Windows 10 updates. I routinely audit the SUG to find that updates for newer Win10 feature updates have been automatically added to the SUG, which is expected according to the evaluation criteria, but I'd very much like to avoid unless we actually deploy those feature updates to our users (each CU for a Win10 feature update is huge). I currently work around this by adding title based filters (-1511, -1709 etc.), but that just seems clumsy - if I maintain 1703 firm-wide, I'd like to be ableā€¦

  8. O365 Delta and Seperated Patch for Security/Non Security

    O365 updates should have the capability of having just delta and also non security and security should be separated. This is a big need for the Organisations as Updates frequently get superseded and the size of the patch for O365 is in Gb's while as machines just need some Mb's to update. Moreover if is security then these can be applied monthly and all feature updates six monthly.

  9. ADR engine improvements

    - when naming ADR, it would be good to have an option to create a name convention when creating the update group. not just <ADRName>+DateTime, but could use some variables like %MM% %YYYY%, etc.

    - it would be good to have some exclusions options on the search, like exclude when text does not contain, maybe restrict by platform, etc. like the filter we can create on the console but adding options for a more complex with and's and or's

    - multiple collection/template based on time as well as ability to exclude updates based on update group. scenario is when youā€¦

  12. Ability to run a command or a task before and after patching using the automatic deployment tool

    Would be nice if the Automatic deployment would allow me to have a task or command run before and after patching takes place. there are some applications like McAfee encryption where I need to run a command to have the PC temporarily turn off a process so that it can patch or restart properly.

  13. Do not supersede monthly updates with preview updates

    It appears that when subsequent software update synchronizations are performed later in the month and the Preview of Monthly Rollup updates have been released by Microsoft, they are superseding the actual Monthly Quality Security updates which I've deployed, even though there is no supersedence info on the Preview update. This means that the updates I deployed are now removed from the Software Update Groups and I have to wait until the next Patch Tuesday to get any newly added servers patched with the new update.

  14. Ability to test settings for deployment notifications

    It would be very helpful to be able to test the configuration for end-user notifications when putting together a software update package or other application deployment. Since there are several configuration settings which can affect what the end-user will see, it would be great if we could visually demo/test the current configuration so we know what the end-user will actually see.

  15. Deploy meltown/spectre related updates not in Monthly CU

    When a ciritcal patch (ex: spectre/meltdown) is released do not put it in the Monthly CU. But release it as a single KB. The 2018-01 CU's for win10 and 7 are a mess.. Powershell ISE crash with dot net fix, juniper vpn client crashes on win10 with the CU. Give us admins the power to open up a CU and pull a single KB out to avoid issues but still be able to deploy the CU minus that one KB.

  17. Show the date released for software updates in Software Center

    The date released should be displayed in software center against each update. this feature was previously present, but not seen anymore.
    It is helpful to see the date released when troubleshooting is required.

  19. 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

  20. Feeding pending updates count back to console

    Suggestion:
    It would be great if we could have a pending updates count and added to the device view on the console. this allows monitoring and managing systems with a high number of pending updates.

    Benefits:
    This help to create a quick report of pending updates count, of devices with hoch count of pending updates. Helps also for a quick verification of the count before checking health of client agent
