  2. 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.

  3. Add link to monitoring deployment from SUP

    Whenever you are in Software Update Groups looking at the Statistics, it would be nice to click a link to view the deployment instead of having to click on Monitoring - Deployments find the deployment and view the status.

    Even having the ability to right click on a SUG and View Status (like you get when you are in Deployments)

  4. deploy to operating system image

    When I do my monthly patch Tuesday deployments; it would be great if in addition to targeting a device collection you could also target one or more operating system images.

    This would allow me to deploy all corporately approved updates not only to our systems but the images that we use to build future systems with.

  5. It would be better include check box to select or deselect Software updates in SCCM.

    At the moment all we can select Software updates by clicking each of Software updates and sometimes it cause confusion. It would be good if we can have kind of Check box option where we can select or deselect Software updates in SCCM console.

  6. ADR – Software Updates Property Filters

    When creating a new ADR software update you have the option to select the property filters and search criteria’s in the wizard. It would be beneficial for an advanced search technique or “wild card” to identify those filters that are broader. For Example: -%Cumulative Update for .NET Framework%Windows 10 Version 1809

  7. campaigning notifications or UI for Inplace windows Upgrades

    Instead of relying on custom powershell script for customization and UI design ,Is it not good to have some options in CM directly which can be used for every release of windows rollouts to have better user experience.

    and may be some notifications msgbox about releases like a campaigning through SCCM.

  11. under software updates a custom column to set a flag if update is flawed

    nice to have a self-defined column under SoftwareLibary-SoftwareUpdates-all Software Updates to mark for yourself whether an update is flawed or not. for example, set a flag (red, yellow, green)

  12. Windows 10 Build Updates - Use standardized terminology please

    Why are the Windows 10 build upgrades under the UPGRADES classification, but called "Feature UPDATES" and listed in the "All Windows 10 UPDATES"?

  13. Install software update step fails during OSD with timeout error when clients connect from slowly bandwidth sites when SUP is remote

    Customer has large number of remote sites close to 1000 sites with slow bandwidth, they have local DP's to keep content transfer local and they are also okay with download SUP catalog over the WAN for a regular client .. however same design does not work for OSD process wherein Install software update step fails on all machine form the remote location during OSD with timeout error after 30 minutes as it cannot download 500MB catalog data in the allotted 30 minutes..

  14. Easy copy or transfer of software update files between deployment packages

    Sometimes, a software update needs to be copied or moved from one deployment package to another. This is especially useful for keeping deployment packages smaller and more efficient when using Automatic Deployment Rules (ADR). Currently, updates always need to be re-downloaded from the internet or a source location. This is inefficient and can be time consuming as well.

  15. bulletin id

    In All Software Updates Node > sort by Bulletin ID Look for MS017-010. Only Windows server 2008 updates appear. However this information is not correct. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx this bulletin also applies to Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10. Bulletin IDs should be set for all affected operating systems.

  16. Only suppress restart when there is a user logged on

    In a WSUS-only environment you can with the GPO "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations" instruct the WUA to only force a restart if no one is logged on. Being a 365/7/24-site this functionality is a the top of the wish list for CM.

  17. Sort by date in ADR Software Updates preview

    When using the preview button and then sorting by date, the default behavior is by sorting the data ascending or descending from the first number in the date column. This should be sorted by the actual date, not the first number.

  18. Offer a re-download option for updates in an existing package.

    When a package is out of sync and it wants a folder that is not on your server anymore. Offer a re-download option for updates or a reset counter for the updates in the package to not downloaded so it can download the a updates again and replicate.

  19. Soft and Hard Deadlines for Software updates

    Software updates need a 'hard' deadline so that computers who have hit the updates but never leave their computers on within a maintenance windows, will never have the updates installed.

    1st : Deployments made available for users to install at their leisure from the software center. Possible

    2nd : After say 1 week, install the updates as per maintenance windows in the evening. Possible

    3rd : After 1 more week if not yet installed, just install no matter what at any time, with the standard notifications for reboots as per SCCM client settings. "Currently not possible"

  20. Bug: Folders for Software Updates are not independent for Windows 10 Servicing and Office 365

    Consider the following user story on 1802:

    I decided to organize all my software updates that are synchronized in my hierarchy by creating folders such as YYYY-MM. After performing move operations on these updates that were released within this format I noticed that the folders are duplicated underneath the 'Windows 10 Servicing" node and Office 365 Updates node. When I browse for the updates in the folders I created under "All Software Updates" my updates visible as expected; however these folders are triplicated down the side of the console and are all empty in other nodes.

    From the All Software…
