  1. Create a new category for MUI / Language packs in asset intelligence

    In asset Intelligence, MUI for an office application belongs to the same category as the application itself. So, when you list applications per category, you will receive a lot of extra records related to MUI that are not really useful. (ea: E-Mail and collaboration will return entries like Office 2013 MUI) Assigning MUI to a specify category will ease filtering.

  2. End of Life

    A good feature to include is the ability to scan a server/workstation and find software that is at or nearing end of life state.

  3. power management - shutdown/reboot/logoff

    Implement a scheduled poweroff/reboot/logoff functionality so we don't depend on implementing it ourselves or 3rd party tools. I would imagine that we would be able to, per collection, schedule a daily/weekly/monthly reboot/shutdown/log off but allowing the user to post-pone x number of times if they are using the machine, etc..

  4. Import single Computerinfo <> MAC-Adress

    On the Computerinfo-Dialog the only field that is not copy/past-enabled is the MAC-Adress field. Its not a Big Problem but every time i need to use it its not realy nice to write the compleate mac-adress by hand.

  5. Reverse how automatic software metering rules are created. It is backward.

    The "Automatically create disabled metering rules" in Software Metering Properties should be "Specify the percentage of computers WITHOUT the software" rather than "Specify the percentage of computers that have the software".

    Because of the way corporations license software we don't care about metering the items that 70% or more of the company has on their machines (the way the rules are currently set up to be created) we care about the software that is used on 60% or less of the computers.

    The current calculation method for automatically creating software metering rules just clutters it up with rules for thingsā€¦

  6. Develop a report for devices within a collection that DO NOT have specific software installed

    It would be very useful to have a built in report that shows devices with details and primary user information for computers in a collection that do NOT have specific software installed. Currently we need to make a collection of target devices (based on OU for example) with software x installed, then another collection of those same target device, and add an exclude collection rule pointing to the first collection... it's difficult to explain that to basic operators and would be nice to have a built in report that does that for us.

  7. True metering of an Application, but not an exe

    Excellent work in adding new features in SCCM 2012.
    Current model of metering thru exe, though works to an extent, it has flaws and doesn't offer needed confidence or trust to business about actual metering of an application as its limited to an exe. If possible, I request Microsoft to research on allowing SCCM admin to select an application, in backend SCCM converts that to all related exe for metering on clients and then monitor only installed application of those group of exe. Its note easy and throw some challenges but I trust and for experts at MS, nothing isā€¦

  8. Internet Explorer version report

    An out of the box report on IE versions would be very helpful, whether in the Software - Companies and Products group of reports, or elsewhere.

  9. Add some usefullness to the Asset Intelligence

    Provide some usefulness to create reports, pull uninstall information, possibly allow a simple right-click create uninstall package from software in the Inventoried Software List. Currently this is a mostly useless item as all it does is show the install count, does not even list the devices that have something installed.

  10. Hardware Inventory may collect Performance Data

    With hardware inventory or another option, SCCM collect and sumarize data from performance monitor. The SCCM agent can start and stop the Performance Monitor.

  11. Make it easier to get Hardware and Software Inventory

    It should be much easier for getting inventory of hardware and software. There are so many good inventory tools out there and SCCM just fail on that part.

  12. Allow adding a client to multiple collections (right click) instead of having to add to a single collection at a time

    Currently you can right click on a device and choose to add selected item to a (new or) existing device collection. It would be very handy to be able to browse for and select multiple collections where a device needs (for example) app a, app b, not app c, but also app d and app e.

  13. Put beside the device name the related user of the device for Reports, Lists,....

    Put beside the device name the related user of the device (Primary User) for reports, lists, views, dialogs....

    For us it is always good to see that relation fast. So an option to add here and there the column for the primary user) will be very heklpful.

  14. Add exclusions for Software Inventory

    Provide a feature where exclusion paths can be provided for software inventory. Right now, I either need to accept all local hard disks or explicitly define every path that I want (which is unrealistic in a large enterprise).

    I would like software inventory amended so that I can inventory every *.exe in C: with the exception of C:\IamTheSameOnEveryCorporateBuild, C:\Windows, etc.

  15. Asset Intelligence

    Two ideas -
    Have a methodology to integrate license entitlements from an Enterprise Agreement (or select agreement) into asset intelligence. Perhaps in addition, there could be a report showing licenses under an expired agreement that you are no longer entitled to use (ie. any subscription based license).

    Integration of the MAP toolset for license tracking purposes for licenses that are based on socket counts. For example, if you license the host for SQL Enterprise, there should be a way to roll up virtual instances to the host level to ensure compliance and report on them inside Asset intelligence. Assuming thisā€¦

  17. Cleanup Task only for Ressources with Decommisioned=1

    Actually the Maintanance Task "Delete Ages Ressources" deletes all old ressources, whatever they are really deleted or they are only inactive for a specific time. There are no Option to clean up ressoures only in the DB which are really deleted (Decomissioned=1). If a Company has a large amount of deleted ressources in a short time, but also a lot of inactive ressoures, they cannot effective cleamup the SCCM DB.

    I think it would be nice to add the Last boot time in client information settings. It would be some nice information to have sometimes.

  19. Specify multiple wake-on-lan schedules

    With each deployment I'd like to specify multiple WoL schedules.

    Let's say our Maintenance Window is from 9PM-12AM. We do a deployment to only Install and Restart during this time. After the initial MW we see compliance at 80%. Our goal is 90% but what if, at that initial MW, these machines were off their dock, on a shelf, or at home? In this scenario we would almost never hit our compliance level.

    For these scenarios I'd like to say 'Send WoL packets during every Maintenance Window until compliance hits 90%." That may be a bit complex but something inā€¦

  20. Wake On LAN returns machine to previous state after a customisable time period.

    It's great to be able to wake a machine up from Power Off or Hibernate to deploy software but being able to specify a time to stay awake before returning to the previous state would be great.

    If I wake my client fleet at 0300 for a deployment which takes (say) 15 minutes, it is a waste of power to leave 2000 machines awake after the deployment.
