  1. Compliance tab in device view

    It would be great to have a tab with compliance/deployment status for a selected device.
    Today we can see deployments when viewing properties of a device, but no status.
    Having a tab next to the Summary tab, which displays deployments and the status of these on the selected device, would make it easy to see if a given device has installed all of its deployments.

  3. Details pane for users and devices should show collection memberships

    In devices screen, when we select a computer, all collections the computer is member of, should be listed in the below pane.

  4. Unable to store DEVICE_GUARD_DATA coming from client HW inventory in SCCM database

    After extending the hardware inventory to collect DEVICEGUARDDATA clients are sending the inventory but its failing to process on the SCCM server. It fails with error: Compilation failed~syntax error on line 8345, token ',' SMSINVENTORYDATA_LOADER 10/26/2016 2:54:48 PM 19308 (0x4B6C)

  5. Control Software Inventory Throttling in Client Settings

    Add the ability to control software inventory throttling to the client settings, in order to let admins decide to turn off throttling (without compiling a MOF).

  8. Restore AMT Un-provision Operation or Provide Access to AMT Admin Account Passwords

    When 1511 upgrade is implemented on a site, administrators lose all access to AMT management of systems that were provisioned in SCCM. The documentation about whats changed in 1511 (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt622084.aspx) is incorrect in two ways:


    1. The documentation states "AMT-based computers remain fully managed when you use the Intel SCS Add-on for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager", when it should state "Newly provisioned AMT-based computers remain fully managed when you use the Intel SCS Add-on for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager". Any systems provisioned via SCCM become effectively un-manageable when upgrading to 1511.


    2. There is no recommendation that systemsā€¦

  9. Manage and Disable Business Hours via Client Settings

    Currently you cannot manage business hours within the console using Client Settings. We should be able to set defaults, prevent users from modifying them, and disable them altogether. Our servers do not need business hours and in a highly virtualized environment we can see a global CPU spike at 10 PM when the default Business Hours end.

  10. Set Time Zone in Client Settings

    Setting of Time Zone in Client Settings (or for that matter, any "regional" based settings) as part of Client Settings would be very helpful. I've previous used Dynamic Variables in an OSD Task Sequence to set regional settings, but that only works where devices are built on that site. Having Client Settings applied to Device Collections that separate devices into regions would be awesome.

  11. Display Last Logon Timestamp discovery data for ALL devices in console, not just clients

    The lastLogonTimestamp attribute is collected during System Discovery from Active Directory. A column for displaying Last Logon Timestamp is available on device views, but only displays the lastLogonTimestamp data for devices where Client = Yes even though the data is there for devices where Client = No. (See attached screenshot from CM CB 1611)

    Making a collection of "Discovered but Needs Client" devices is common during initial client deployment and while trying to get to 100% client ***********. The lastLogonTimestamp data is very useful when trying to identify devices to focus on because they've been seen by AD recently.

  12. Client status icon should be Green for online, yellow for offline, red for dead/inactive and grey for broken/misoconfigured/requires help

    The current '2 color' method of identifying client status icon in the console should also include yellow and red.
    Client status icon should be Green for online, yellow for offline (but still active), red for dead (more than 30 days) inactive and grey for broken/misconfigured/requires assistance clients.
    Also make the icon column as a searchable criteria in the console.

  13. Allow the Device Properties dialog box to be resized, by default it is too narrow

    Allow the Device Properties dialog box to be enlarged to allow admins to view the tabs with wide content, such as the Deployments Tab in particular. Also for the Deployments Tab reduce the default width of the "Program" and "Type" fields as they generally waste a lot of column area with blank space.

  16. Tag Devices No Longer in Active Directory

    It would be nice to have a pre-built collection that puts devices found in SCCM that do not have a corresponding object in Active Directory. We could then delete those objects on a cycle or as needed. This will help keep our SCCM inventory more closely resemble Active Directory and keep it clean.

  17. more granular control over client settings

    Would it be possible to add more granular control over client settings, for example by incorporating a GPO style Enabled, Disabled, Not Configured function. I particularly find multiple deployments of Computer Agent settings fiddly. Its not the end of the world, its just a bit clunky.

  18. Sorting by the Icon column should sort the different states, especially with device online/offline

    Currently, when you sort by the Icon column, the items with the same state icon don't end up sorted together for some reason. With the device online/offline icons now in the console, this is an especially good time to finally fix this issue that goes back to CM12 RTM.

  20. Add the capability to Software Metering to collect and present data only for the device and not the user

    Many customers want to use Software Metering, but are legally not allowed to, because ConfigMgr always discloses the user's name and his/her usage. To be compliant with European law it should be possible to collect data only related to the machines software is installed on. Of course that would not allow for all metering features/reports to work, but at least could many companies start using the feature in general and act on that data.
