  1. 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

  2. Download third party updates directly from WSUS

    When third party updates are configured and an update is published from a third party catalog, such as Dell:s or HP:s driver catalog, it can be deployed to a collection. When this is done the clients try to download it directly from WSUS.
    The download fails with a bits errorcode (0x80190194) which basically means a 404. I managed to fix that but got stuck on a content hash verification error.

    I would like to see the ability to use the setting "No deployment package" on an ADR which deploys third party updates but instead of pointing the clients to Microsoft,ā€¦

  3. Track total client activity time using bgb data

    Active clients should connect regularly to SCCM over the BGB status (it is what is used to determine if a client is 'online/offline' today). My organization tracks patch compliance closely, and part of that measure is determining if the client was online long enough in a given day to actually complete compliance related activities, such as installing the latest CU. We would like a way, likely using the BGB channel data, to determine how long a client is online in a given period of time, with flexibility to quantify by day, by week, by month, etc.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. Publish third party software update content

  8. 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.

  9. software update filter

    when on the software update node and you need to perform filter by product, it should only list products that already being sync and/or products that you have selected to sync, not all products

  10. Make SUP products searchable

    Let's improve the Software Update Point Component Properties window by adding a text input box to allow searching/filtering through the available products.

    Scrolling through the list is not a user-friendly approach. Add to that the rather frequent product name changes and additions.

    A search box would make it easier to find and select the desired products in the list.

  11. Create configurable Report of updates / Security Bulletins

    Report would be configurable to have date ranges, vender, security, updates, etc similiar to reports against a given machine. This would be able to be turned into a subscription that can be emailed after a WSUS update is performed. This way the admins can see what has been released since the last WSUS update or a given date for a specific list of update requirements. Never miss an out-of-band notice.

  12. Add Columns to ADR Deployments

    Expose more of the properties from ADR deployment settings as column headings in the lower-section "Deployment Settings" box when viewing ADRs in the console. For example, schedules, user experience, download settings, etc.

  13. 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 you have a testā€¦

  14. Office 365 Updates via SUP - Add a Customization tab for Office Customization Toolkit

    Deploying Office 365 updates via the Software Update Point works pretty well, especially when upgrading to a feature release! Upgrading from 1808 Semi-Annual Channel to 1908 Semi-Annual Channel works great! However I'd like to request more granular control of the update.

    When you right click on an Office 365 update --> Properties, it would be awesome to have a tab that gives you the Office Customization Toolkit. OCT should give you the ability to change channels, change bitness, unselect programs like Teams or OneNote.

    I understand that we can create a whole new Office 365 application package and deploy toā€¦

  15. 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.

  17. Fix Off-Line Servicing for Windows 10 Builds

    Right now if you want to use Off-Line Servicing on a Windows 10 Image you will see a list of every Windows 10 update available going all the way back to 1507. It would be great if there was some type of detection of the build number you were servicing and it would only list the truly applicable updates (1607, 1703, etc.). Right now you either leave it alone to it's own intelligence or manually unselect the non-applicable updates.

  18. software update allow download via windows update only after x number of hours

    today if you select the option to allow the client to download the content from a DP, it can go to Microsoft. This is great, but I would like to have an option to allow this to happen only after x number of hours or maybe x number of retries, allowing the DP to get the content (in case of a admin forgot to add this to the DP, maybe slow link and need to copy content manually)

  19. Add tooltip to Icons for Software Updates

    In the software updates space, it would be nice to have a tool tip (hover over) stating what the icon means. Whenever there is an unexpected icon, I need to look up what the icon means. A simple hover over tool tip stating whether it is normal, unavailable, expired, supereded, etc. would be very helpful. Here is the link that I have to look up https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/sum/understand/software-updates-icons

  20. In the Edit Membership wizard please add the ability to search for available Software Update Groups

    In the Edit Membership wizard, add the ability to search for available Software Update Groups. In an environment with many SUGs it is not easy to scroll and find the SUG you're looking for.
