  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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€¦

  15. I would like to be able to add PC(s) to multiple collections at once instead of one by one.

    As it currently stands, if I want to add a PC to multiple Collections, I have to go through the process one by one. It would be nice to be able to add a PC to more than 1 Collection at a time.

  16. Right-click Collection Deployments to View Deployment Status

    I find it would be handy when viewing deployments to a collection, if a Right-Click option existed to view status - i.e. open the deployment status (Monitoring/Deployments/[Deployment]/Status).

  18. Fix collection update engine

    The way collection membership updates are handled is completely flawed. Should this be fixed, the (soft) limit of collections that can have incremental updates enabled should also be changed.

    We all know that when a collection is updated, all collections limited to it are also updated. And should any of the children collections be updated, then so will the children of the children, and so forth and so on.

    However, there is a massive design flaw that in this system that means a huge number of collections that should never be updated are being updated.

    Imagine this scenario:

  19. Collection column chooser filter and Search Criteria chooser list filter.

    In collection view, when adding a column, a live filter search would be really great since there are so many items to choose now. Same for collection search criteria. Iā€™m always searching for ā€˜Device Online Statusā€™ and ā€˜Pending Restartā€™ to add these and I spend too much time looking for them in the ever growing list šŸ˜Š Thank you for all the amazing choices to add!
    Furthermore, it would be nice if changing search from ā€˜current nodeā€™ to ā€˜All Subfoldersā€™ would not remove the filters Iā€™ve endured the pain to create.

  20. 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.
