  1. Configurable Software Update instllation time

    With Windows 10 and Server 2016 updates taking longer to install than previous versions of Windows. It would be helpful to be able to be able to set a site wide setting for the default installation time given for software updates. Currently this is 10 minutes but we are having to manually set this to 60 minutes on each update presently.

  2. Need to be able to select a device group when scanning for updates

    Being able to select a device group when scanning for updates and only seeing updates that are missing from that group would be a huge help.
    currently the counts reflect the whole environment which is much less helpful.

  5. Software Updates Graph

    When you are looking up a certain software update and it shows you that 53 are non complainant that you could click on the graph that shows 53 and would bring up those machines by name to go apply the updated too.

  7. Add a "superseding update deployed" column to the Software Updates node(s)

    When a software update has a superseded = yes, it would be useful to also be able to see if the superseding update is deployed, to verify it is safe to remove from a given software update group.

  8. double notification from Office 365 updates

    I would like to make the double notification optional when deploying Office 365 updates from SCCM. When the deployment has a deadline, SCCM client seems to be adding a reg key that is recognized by Office 365 client. Couple hours before the deadline, there is a notification coming from Office 365 C2R. If an user shutdown the machine before deadline, the user will see multiple notification from both O365 or SCCM next day. The order is kind of random. Worst case the Office 365 update reminder still shows after the update being applied by SCCM, because it passed the deadline…

  9. ADR only fires from

    ADRs currently appear to only fire from the primary site server. Unfortunately our primary doesn't have internet access and guess what? The ADR fails to download updates. I can't be the only one in this position. I would suggest a future release (or update) should include an option to specify a server from which the ADR should fire from (in our case and probably most cases, the SUP server).

    Thanks,

    Simon

  10. Software updates query

  11. maintenance window and computer restart notification time preventing reboots

    It seems that if you set a client notification time in Computer Restart client policy that exceeds the maintenance window on a collection then the devices in that collection will never force a reboot with a user logged on.

    It would be nice if it gave the user the notification window but when the maintenance window comes around for the 2nd time and a reboot has not been done then the installation would happen at the start of that maintenance window.

  12. See software update download date in Console

    is it possible to see the Software update download date in console?

    i mean when a KB is revisited or bug fixed but keep the same name it's good to know if i donwloaded the previous version or the revisited one.

    then i can see if i need to redownload the kb or not

  13. When enabling "Upgrades" class' in SUP properties, the advice about KB3095113 is wrong, KB3095113 is superceded. Badly needs attention!!!!

    When enabling the "Upgrades" classification in SCCM SUP properties, the advice about KB3095113 is wrong, KB3095113 is superceded by KB4041693. This is horrendous to unravel and badly needs clarification and attention. Please make efforts to sort this mess out, thanks.

  15. 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

  16. Console Typo - Windows Update for business Profiles

    In both the CM CB 1606UR1 and the CM TP 1609 admin consoles, the Windows Update for Business Profiles node needs the "B" in Business capitalized.

  17. Remove unused Vendor classifications from SUP

    Remove unused Vendor classifications from SUP.

    As l have been configuring SCCM 1806 with Third Party Patching, l am now left with unwanted Vendors being listed in SUP and SUP Reports.

    Can these be pruned/removed?

  18. 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.

  19. Allow postponing windows updates

    Allow the end user to postpone windows updates and show in the console user/computer name of the postponed computer. Currently the console has vague reasons for software failure.
