  1. 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.

  2. 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..

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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)

  6. Add InventoryLog to replication

    Add InventoryLog to replication in a hierarchy. This would allow the ability to query the table from the CAS.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Change hard coded limit for HW inventory mif files.

    There is a hard limit of 50 MBs for Hardware inventory set within the data loader for MIF file. If you enabled AI classes to collect more data by SCCM, it is not unusual for these computers to hit this hard-coded limit. This causes an endless loop of resyncs being performed by SCCM clients. the resync then consumes network bandwidth and processing time on the client/MP/etc. It is not until it hit the Data loader that these MIF files are rejected and ultimately a resync occurs to start the whole process over. The hard code limes should be increased toā€¦

  14. Capture Cisco CDP and LLDP packets in SCCM reporting for asset tracking

    CDP and LLDP packets are generated by network switches and sent to clients to identify which port they are connected to. If the computer is on an enterprise wifi access point, it will capture which access point it is connected to. This data should be captured by SCCM so inventory reports can be run to get a PC's physical location in the network.

    This data can be captured with Wireshark, but if SCCM could capture these packets it would aid greatly in PC location and network troubleshooting since it tells you which switch and port number the computer is on.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Connect Multiple SCCM environments to a single OMS instance

    In an Enterprise environment where multiple SCCM instances exist for a single active directory domain, the ask is that the OMS instance for a particular tenant support data input from multiple SCCM instances (OMS Connectors).

  20. Uninstall ContentID missing from console

    In version 1802 and below the uninstall Content ID is not visible in the console. Only the Install Content ID is visible next to the DeploymentType. That makes i hard to troubleshoot. Would be nice if you could add another column for the Uninstall Content ID next to the Install Content ID.
    I wrote a littel script to extract the ID from the SDMPackageXML as a workaround. See attached.
