  2. 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€¦

  3. 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€¦

  4. 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.

  5. Active Directory System Discovery Exclude Server OS

    Under Active Directory System allow the option to exclude server OS. We have a large AD structure and many domains. The servers are not all in the same OUs.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Add the Ability to Create User Tunnel Always-on VPN Profiles

    Please add support for Microsoft Always-on VPN profiles to Company Resource Access > VPN Profiles. Not all customers are using co-management and even some that do have not, or will not, transition that workload. BTW.... Company resource Access is missing from the categories in user voice. :-)

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Virtual Environments - User and Machine targeted members

    Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems you can't mix a an SCCM/App-V 5 Virtual Environment with Machine and User targeted apps.
    e.g. Adobe Reader DC must be machine targeted and I'm trying to deploy User targeted plugins as they are licensed.
    You can achieve this with App-V 5 Connection Groups.
    BIG BIG failing if this is the case..

  12. Provide an option to mention a path for executable for software metering rules

    Provide an option to mention a path for executable for software metering rules.
    The software metering rule only allows us to mention file name and version. This becomes a problem when there are multiple applications with same executable name. Also, for applications (like Autodesk Navisworks) that have different modules installed at different locations and have the same file name & version, it is impossible to track usage for individual models for billing. It would be great to have an option to specify a matching path for the executable file in the rule.

  13. 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. 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.

  16. Inventory printers (local and network)

    It would be nice if there would be a report that shows all the current printers "attached" to a user profile (local and network). Without having to reside un custom SQL scripts or custom reports (for us the people that don't know scripting or SQL)

  17. Client Notification ā€“ Option to Collect a Full Hardware/Software Inventory

    For troubleshooting purposes would like and option to run a full hardware/software inventory on a client under client notification. Because there are cases when you are trying to troubleshoot why HW or SW inventory data is not flowing into the SCCM database and the best way to do that is forcing the client to perform a full inventory and look at the logs. Delta inventories sometimes do not pick up changes on the client.

  18. 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.

  19. Active Directory description attribute in column

    It's very VERY useful being able to see the assets AD description attribute on their list (via column selection).
    Although it is possible to retrieve the AD 'description' attribute by following "active directory description" idea instructions, people need to be able to use it as a column in the asset list instead of having to right click on the object and see its properties.
