  1. Schedule a deployment for X days after the 2nd Tuesday of the month (example)

    Sometimes the the second Tuesday (as an example) could be 7 days into the month, other times it could be much longer. Allow all schedules to be X days after a 1st/2nd/3rd mon/tue/wed/thur etc

  2. Extend functionality of Device Categories

    Allow for multiple Device Categories per device and provide a PowerShell cmd-let to assign category(s) to devices. This would allow categories to represent 'business rules' and allow automatic assignment of devices to collections based on one or more categories. i.e. "Production" and "Application1". This would be very useful for interfacing with external systems that automatically create/deploy machines, such as HPSA or VRA/VRO.

  3. "server group"

    Add a confirmation window when enabling the Server Group setting on a collection. The placement of the checkbox is very similar to the Incremental Updates checkbox on the following tab. Have seen some admins enabling it by mistake, which causes problems.

  5. Blocking collection query is crashing SQL server

    SCCM Version Number and CU level
    SCCM 1610
    Customer has SQL 2012 with SQL Compatibility mode 2012.

    Observed behavior:

    The behavior is like this:

    ā€¢ We have a collection A (BCS026B0)that contains 80.000 objects (or 100.000). It is big.
    ā€¢ If we create a new collection B that is limited to A, once the update cycle for the collection B the SQL query will run with the ;WITH LimitedBaseTable as
    ā€¢ This will generate a blocking and will never end.
    The above behavior is not always reproducible with all big collections.

    What we think would be useful is to addā€¦

  6. Create a collection from search results

    When you create a search, for instance within a collection, it would be great if you had the option to save that search/criteria as a new collection. I know you can save the search itself to run again, but sometimes you may need this to be a collection for deployments or something.

  7. Paste unedited Excel columns into Add Resources

    If you want to build a collection from an Excel report, you must currently do something like ="""" & A1 & """," to get the proper formatting for Add Resources. Making Add Resources flexible enough to accept a straight copy-paste from an Excel column of computer names would streamline this.

  8. Override maintenance windows

    Allow local admins to bypass the maintenance windows for deployments even if the deployment is hidden in the Software Center. Allow this on collections and individual clients. Usually needed for short notice deployments in education.

  10. Collection Columns

    Is it possible/can we please implement the ability to load collected system or user discovery data as columns for collections and the Users/Devices areas?

    (May be duplicated with an idea inside an idea of another Collection idea, but I did my fair share of browsing before posting this...)

    Currently there are only five or six columns available for the Users area in the console, and the ability to display custom collected active directory information from system discovery as a column such as 'Managed By' or 'Description' for a device in the devices area isn't available. Inclusively, data collected from theā€¦

  11. Enable additional system properties as a column choice in device collections

    You cannot add some system resource properties as a column in a device collection. Example "Last Logon User Name". I know you can create a custom console, but would be nice to have out of the box.

  12. Allow export of Collection queries to a Query

    We, like many institutions, have experienced "Collection Creep", over the years, that is, we have accumulated many collections which are no longer necessary for software distribution. The logic used in these collections however is still valid and can occasionally be useful, so it would be very handy if we could simply export the logic to a query, which could then be run as required. It could be designed so that an include or exclude could also include the logic from those collections, and restricted to only work on Query-based collections.

  13. Create Collection based on Machine variables query

    It would be nice to be able to create a collection based on non-encrypted machine variables. In my company we donā€™t have a good way to distinguish between customer service rep machines and back office people in the same office location without our CMDB data. Separating them in Active Directory OU structure is not the greatest idea. If we want to do something like this we have to use a script to create direct membership collections that contains thousands of machines.

    Currently the only way to integrate 3rd party data would be a new HW scan of a client WMIā€¦

  14. Bring back SubCollections

    SCCM 2012 got rid of subcollections. You can fake it by creating collections-of-collections but they're a pain to maintain. Please bring them back.

  16. Collection membership permissions and logging

    Please allow us to configure permissions so that individuals can only do direct include or removal of individual machines instead of allowing query based or other collections to be added too. Additionally greater logging of not just that the collection was modified but how it was modified. Most solutions I see out there require a customer scripted or web front end approach which adds complexity to support etc.

  17. From a deployed software, be able to go directly to the collection

    Many of us has a legacy environment that we have to take care of. And most of the time it is a messy looking SCCM in our hands.

    This does cause issues at times when the previous admin did set up far too many collections and it is quite time consuming when you try to figure out where this collection is located in SCCM in about 50 sub-folders (make it 100 with user and device collections).

    It would be nice if we could right-click on the collection that a software is deployed to, and select "Go to collection" and itā€¦

    Collections don't currently show any information about who created it, or who last updated it. This information would be helpful to have in the collection properties window.

  19. Collection protection from deletion

    I would like to see some kind of protection from accidentally deletion.
    Sometimes I find myself accidentally deleting folder or collections which I did not want to delete.
    Just like in Active Directory OU there is a protection for this.

  20. Create an Collection Base on IOS Profile or Android Devices

    actually all device enrolled come on all IOS device but is not manageable if we want to deploy App or Base rule on Different devices we need to Create manually an collection and add all the devices in this collection also manually who generate a lot of works.

    if we have the possibility to create an collection and to be able to have all device registered who are assigned to ios Profile this collection will be populate automatically and that will also give our live more easy,

    eg: if we create an ios Profile Kiosk IPad Sales or Profile Kioskā€¦
