  1. Automate OS Images by integrating the latest Software Updates from the Configuration Manager Console

    Rather than manually updating Build & Captured images every month and selecting when it's applied. set up an automated rule that applies Windows updates on a scheduled basis to a windows image that, then updates the distribution point(s) automatically.

  2. Devices compliance status

    Software Updates Dashboard - Devices Compliance Status: When adjusting Compliance Status Filters, save the chosen settings.
    Preferrably save the settings per user.

  3. available time

    In the console we used to be able see what the available time and deadline time was when adding a deployment to ADR's. Since updating some hotfixes with 1706 we no longer see this option.

  4. Windows 10 Servicing Page on

    Please add Windows 10 1809 to the OS pie chart on the SCCM Windows 10 Servicing section. Right now it is appearing as "Other" even in the SCCM 1810 console which should be latest and greatest.

  5. software update search addition

    it would be very nice to have the ability to add a search column to show the software update groups a given update is a member of. Working in an environment where there is role based security deployed, you may have an update that might be deployed to either area. If you are returning just those updates that are deployed, the second area might miss an update that is needed in the second area.

  6. 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.

  7. We are a large company that does not target software updates to "All Systems" but to smaller collections based upon operating company and Op

    We are a large company that does not target software updates to "All Systems" but to smaller collections based upon operating company and Operating system. As such, when trying to deploy a task sequence we cannot get any updates to deploy because the computer is not yet part of a targeted collection. I would like to see 2 changes to address this:
    1. Be able to target software update groups/updates in task sequence.

    2. Add the ability to put computer into specific collections as part of the task sequence.

  8. Software Updates - more granular.

    WSUS could be a lot more granular, but maybe that can be fixed when using SCCM? For example, there are many versions of Windows 10, now, and we only use a few. Separating x86 and x64 too, would allow our Automatic Deployment Rules to avoid picking up updates that don't apply.
    Thanks heaps.

  9. How to update your installation media after update through 'Updates and Servicing'

    After I ran all the updates from 'Updates and Servicing', I am unable to do site maintenance from the original installation source.

    Because of this I am unable to update from an evaluation version to the licensed version according to my SA.

    How to update the installation sources to overcome this problem?

  10. Clearer Title Descriptions Needed For "All Windows 10 Updates"

    Since Microsoft is changing the way it names its updates (again), being able to determine whatā€™s Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted) or Semi-Annual Channel will help admins be able to deploy these updates in a Servicing Plan a little more clearly. When 1703 CB was superseded and 1703 CBB became available, they both listed with the same title under ā€œAll Windows 10 Updatesā€. This also affected the way filtering was configured, so the conditions I used on a previously existing Servicing Plan no longer previewed any feature updates.

  11. dsd

    It appears that if you choose to not define maintenance windows, and then deploy updates without checking the box 'when the installation deadline.... (Software Updates Installation), then deployments fail with an 0x87d00667 error. System should recognize no MW applies then ignore the checkbox state.

  12. Allow Periods in Software Update Group Names

    When creating a Software Update Group, you cannot currently use periods in the name. For example, if you tried to create a Software Update Group named "Special Handling - .NET Framework 4.6.1" it would fail as periods are not allowed.

    For bonus points, find any other disallowed characters and make the reason they are blocked go away.

    Thanks for the help!

  13. Replace the "Number of Exired Updates" column

    With SCCM CB expired updates are automatically removed from SUGs. This means that the column "Number of Expired Updates" in the Software Updates Group view is redundant, the number will always be zero. I would like to see it replaced by a "Number of Superseded Updates" column instead.

  14. Ability to deploy Software Update Groups to User Collections

    It would make sense to have the ability to deploy software update groups to user collections. We have a few different user collections for "pilot" users. When we want to test new software we deploy to these "waves" of pilot users. This gives us the ability to not have to worry about maintaining the users primary device in a device based collection. We have device based affinity within client settings enabled. So if the user ever replaces their pc it gets updated within 48 hrs of system use. This will dynamically keep our pilot list updated. It's a PIA tryingā€¦

  15. Next Run Windows Servicing

    In the Windows Servicing Rules window, it would be helpful to see the next scheduled time the Windows Service is supposed to run. If it doesn't have one, then the cell would be blank.

  16. make md5 available from the software update view like in wsus

    useful for application white-listing having the hash available prior to deployment.

  17. Allow more complex rules for Automatic Deployment Rules

    In our environment we only have x64 workstations and use a specific version of windows 10. But currently when using a title filter you can only create an OR filter

    eg. Title -86x OR 1703

    I want to be able to do "Title -86x AND 1703"

  18. express installation file download in console

    need to reduce the download of .psf files for each Cumulative updates of Windows 10 versions, as its consuming more than 30 to 40 GB on a monthly basis. Should have a similar option on console like enable express installation on console (which is similar to enable express installation on clients)

  19. Windows Update Agent Version

    Would it be possible to have a visual queue in the Software Updates console a hint of which KBs are delivering which Windows Update Agent?

  20. Allow users to see all ADR properties

    It would be nice to be able to see and change all properties of an ADR after it is created, such as deadline times, availability times, etc.
