  1. 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.

  2. Possibility to add custom wmi classes

    Part of the functionality seems to already be in the system, when adding a new Hardware inventory class. The point being the custom class(es) should be replicated to all providers, included in the database, and backed up when running the built-in backup task. This is useful when extending the console and striving for full integration, including the possibility to save settings and configurations.

  3. Asset Intelligence - inventoried Software Enhancment

    Im trying to use the report "License 15A ā€“ Third Party Software Reconciliation Report" to get lisence information and counts but there one issue I'm Facing . generating a report is mainly depending on the Product Name (PN). so i have to provide the same PN on the Excel Sheet for it to count. sometimes the PN contain Different version number or the architecture of the application which will make it the counting inaccurate since I have to add all the PN with version number in the excel sheet. it would be better to be able to compine these underā€¦

  4. User Device Affinity: Temporary Assignments

    We manage our systems using only usage based UDA. User defined and admin defined were not being updated regularly enough and our data got stale quickly.

    We have since change to usage only UDA. Our challenge here is new devices or loaner devices do not have the applications available to the users until they meet the usage threshold.

    A work-around that we have done is create a PS script to force a usage based UDA releationship between the user and the device. We assigned it to only our support staff, so users can't go installing apps on neighboring devices. Thisā€¦

  5. More Device Top Level Segragation Options

    It would be great to have more top level device segregation options. Currently we create lower level collections based on names for various departments, all other segregations/collection memberships generally require hardware inventories to have been performed before they can be processed. If these are servers or critical systems it may be too late and they are added to inappropriate collection before they are added to the collections to exclude them. It would be good to be able to separate out devices at top level collections by boundary, subnet or IP range. In order for complete segregation, we are looking intoā€¦

  6. Client uninstall and reinstall pop-up, add " Never show this msge again"

    When I choose to "Install Client" and then choose to "Uninstall Client" add an option to the pop-up prompt about networking traffic that I can select "Never Show This Again". I get this prompt EVER SINGLE TIME I uninstall / reinstall the client.

  7. I would like to see more Compliance assisting tools like Nithins SCCM Client Tool incorporated into SCCM.

    Nithins tool allows you to turn on server services, fix wmi, run actions and fix issues, uninstall/reinstall client, ping devices, rerun advertisments, on several devices at once. Combines all of the tools you need for Compliance. Would be nice to not have to download other tolls for this.

  8. filter Surface devices dashboard on specific collections

    The new Surface devices dashboard looks great. It will be nice to custom it with specific collections like the office 365 client management dashboard

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Instant Membership Updates

    When techs. add a machine to a collection for deployment, it takes a while for the machine to show up. The only way to speed up this process is to update the "All Systems" membership and the applicable membership of where the machine is. Can there be a way to make this process more responsive?

  12. Bring Desktop Analytics to Configuration Manager

    Bring the full new Desktop Analytics to SCCM, at ignite it was presented and you can have it only trough the fast track channel, when we can have the full experience in SCCM that your be great also for the co-managed devices and maybe with a connector to Intune to have the Intune SA clients also in SCCM for an overview.

  13. 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.

  14. 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€¦

    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.

    Add information to General Information:

  16. Management Insight: Inventories approaching and violating max MIF size

    There's already a UVI for two to increase the default maximum MIF size. Regardless of the size this seems like an easy Management Insight win. Let me know if the existing limit is being violated or if some devices are starting to get close so I can investigate why. Obviously we need to determine which devices are in question.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
