  1. More granular monthly maintenance windows

    Monthly maintenance windows currently can be defined as a day of week occurrence relative to the first day of the month e.g. Second Thursday. However our business would like to define these windows in a different way relative to a specific day of week occurrence. This can be described in two different wordings that give the same result.
    Assume two maintenace windows occurring on September 27 2019 and October 4 2019, they can be described as:
    - Friday after the 4th Tuesday & Friday after the 5th Tuesday.
    OR
    - 1st Friday after 4th Tuesday & 2nd Friday after 4thā€¦

  3. Collection creator property

    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.

  4. Collection specific maintenance windows

    Maintenance windows should apply to the collection, not the device, and only deployments made to a collection should abide by the maintenance window. Allowing devices to use maintenance windows assigned to other collections outside of what is deployed to the specific collection is cause for issue, especially in a 24 hour operation like a hospital where downtime can affect patient lives. Hope this makes sense

  5. Direct Rule - View Server's FQDN

    When adding a server by name to a collection via the Add Rule, Direct Rule, it would be great to see the server's FQDN. When two or more servers share the same name but are in different domains, it's a luck of the draw as to which one gets picked. Thanks!

  6. Ignore Referenced Collection Rules when Deleting

    When deleting a collection that is included or excluded in another collection, you must first remove that rule manually from the other collection(s).

    Please add the ability to automatically remove those rules with a prompt, similar to how deleting a collection will automatically delete any existing deployments (with a confirm prompt).

  7. Protect Custom Collections from High-Risk Deployments

    It would be nice to be able to protect collections from High-Risk Deployments in the same way that the built-in collections, such as All Systems collection is. Perhaps, a tick box on General or Deployments tab?

    For example: if I have default size of 100 for hiding collections from high risk deployments, I also have smaller collections of critical systems with less than 100 members that I want protected from high-risk task sequences.

  8. Temporary Collections

    Create a new Collection class called "Temporary Collections". When you choose to create a temporary collection, you would be presented with a field to specify the date and time the collection will automatically be deleted. This would be useful for one-time deployments or point in time usage collections. There would need to be logic to prevent other non-temporary collections from using these as limiting, excludes, or includes, but ultimately this would assist greatly in large enterprises and collection creep.

  9. Add "Exclude" option to Context menu

    For example, I have a query that populates a device collection based on certain things.
    This can be valid for a user collection based on department.
    However, if I want to exclude just a couple of computers or users, maybe it would make sense to view all the members of the collection, right click on the ones I want excluded and then "Exclude" them, instead of adding exclusions one at a time or different workarounds.

  10. Collections should have a column for IP address

    When a collection of computers is opened we should have the option of displaying a column with the machines IP address. Or 2 columns, one for IPV4 and another for IPV6.

  11. Trigger install of advertised software when adding to device collection

    It would be great when adding a single or multiple PC's to a device collection, that there could be an additional option under add Selected items: "add selected items to existing device collection and trigger machine policy and application deployment action." Maybe you could make it less wordy... but it would make some of our lives even more streamlined! Love RCT, but this could eliminate an extra step. Aint no body got time to wait for client policies :) Thanks!

  12. Leave Filtering on Collections when you leave the collection.

    When you filter a collection (example: Device Online Status), then move off of that collection to look at something else in the console, when you go back to that collection the filter is removed. I would like the filter to stay on the collection until I decide to remove it. That way I don't have to wait for a collection to load just to filter it again.

  13. Count of device status should pops once came to Online

    Once the machine came to ONLINE from Offline - It should shows as a count status in that left corner of collection E.g., Out of 2000 clients if 500 machines are in ONLINE then count should be 500 in the left corner of that device collection.

  14. task sequence media copy variables from Collection

    When creating Stand Alone task sequence Media it would be very nice to be able to select an existing SCCM collection and copy over the collection variables. This way you do not have to manually type over each collection variable Name and value from the collection to the task sequence media wizard.

  16. Direct Add over-ride Excluded Collection

    Direct Add over-ride Excluded Collection

    Once an exclusion collection is added it would be nice if we could do a direct add that would over-ride the exclusion for those instances where THAT lone object still needs to be in a specific collection that is excluded, but also needs to be INCLUDED directly.

  17. add selected items to existing device collection - Acknowledgment window

    When using "add selected items to existing device collection" option from a device , no confirmation or acknowledge window is shown.

    It would be great to display a pop up window with information like "machine added to XYZ collection

  18. Exclude selected items to Existing Device collection

    When we right click the collection, we can see Add selected items option where we can add the collection to existing collection or new collection. Also, we would like to have an option to Exclude the selected collection to existing collections

  19. System up time column in Device Collection View

    Would be great if we could see the system boot time or how long the system has been up in the collection views. Hopefully this info could be gathered via the mechanism that is getting the current logged on user. An example where it would be useful is just after patching to confirm the devices have restarted.

  20. Display warning if Copying / cloning a collection with a Maintenance Window configured

    It would be easy to Copy/Clone a collection with a maintenance window configured, and not realize your new collection now has a maintenance window set.

    A simple pop up providing notification would be helpful.
