  1. Query tuning help by highlighting or coloring indexed fields in query rule editor

    I came across many queries in Collections and found that IT-Pros use sometime fileds in their (collection) queries which are not indexed - which has a negative effect on query and collection performance. I would wish that we display the indexed values in bold or colour so you will be aware of the data which gives you better performance. In a second step we may be able to provide an alternative field if available in another attribute class.

  2. Remove the option to deleted the members from a collect when the collection is deleted.

    It seem odd that since you multi-select and deleted user / computers that you would need to have a prompt to delete the users / computers when deleting the collection.

    The process should be if you need to deleted the users / computers and the collection.
    - Multi-select and deleted computers. If there is a large number users / computers blocks deleted if number excesses High-Risk deployment settings.
    - Deleted the Collection
    - If the collection is limiting another collection. Then prompt if that collection should be deleted too.

  3. 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€¦

  4. Show different icon for user and device collections in Application Deployment tab

    Show different icon for user and device collections in Application Deployment tab.
    At this moment you see in the Application - tab Deployment the same icon for user and device collections. If that could be changed so that you see a collection-icon with a human head on top of it for a user collection and a collection-icon with an computer on top of it (see attachment). Then you can see what kind of collection the deployment is targetted, which helps for troubleshooting.

  5. Collection Expiration

    Provide an option to "expire" a collection where it gets removed (or at lease collection evaluations are disabled) on a specified date. This would help with the collection evaluator from becoming overloaded with processing Pilot/Test collections that were "forgotten".

  6. Auto-update collection when limiting collection is changed

    When the limiting collection of a collection is changed the membership is not updated automatically to comply with the new limited collection. This should be changed, or there should be a notice of that when the limiting collection is changed. Thank you very much.

  7. Improve performance on queries bases on custom inventory

    Many customers are adding custom hardware inventory classes and build collections on the data collected. Today the inventory tables are not indexed by default which has a negative performance effect, especially in large environments. It would be great to have an opportunity to classify the most used fileds and ceate a index on them to speed up queries.

  8. Provide some Reporting of some kind to ascertain which clients are "Currently Internet"

    Currently there is no reporting or way of creating a collection that targets IBCM Clients. It would be really nice if we could do reporting on how many users are connected via Internet.

  9. When deploying a task sequence from a collection: Don't clear the chosen collection!

    When right clicking a collection and choosing to deploy a task sequence to that collection, after the TS has been chosen the chosen collection is cleared.

    When one have made a conscious effort of what collection to deploy to, trust that the operator have made the right choice!

    Clearing the collection is a highly unwanted nanny state :(
    You might as well remove the possibility to deploy TS's via collections then :(

  10. Quick & Easy way to find all collections with server group setting enabled

    In my environment somehow one of our collections had the checkbox for "All devices are part of the same server group" checked (this may be a bug altogether). It was on a workstation collection which prevented those machines from getting updates due to a "Wait on Lock" status. I had to manually click through the collections to find which collection had this setting enabled to clear the lock. It would be helpful to have a quick way to query all collections that have this setting enabled, just in case the admin doesn't know which collection had it enabled.

  13. Security: Prevent or prompt for modifications to collection rules with existing deployments

    We now have deployment verification to prevent damaging deployments from being created, but that doesn't stop existing deployments from being deployed accidentally.

    It would be great to prevent or atleast prompt for any modifications to collection membership rules (large number of direct adds, include, query) when the collection already has an existing deployment.

  14. Add collection location in collection property

    Add info of the "Location" if you search for collection.
    e.g. we use Folders and subfolder for companies. and each time we search for collections we dont know the Location.
    we got more than 5000 collections.. where this is tricky to find out via
    Eyes .

  16. Add more Power Management Options to Collections

    Currently the number of power management options available on collections are limited to what SCCM displays but there are more options available to clients, either expand what is available in SCCM or make it possible to add new power options using the guids for those options.

  17. 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.

  19. Collection link in deployments

    When viewing a deployment, make the collection it's deployed to a link. So I can easily view it's membership. Right now I have to stop viewing the deployment and jump over to assets wunderbar and hunt down the collection. In a large environment this is time consuming, especially if you are using both device and user based deployments.

  20. Create collections based on boundary group

    With more and more AD admins being directed to "flatten" their sites and services, the ability to create query collections based on an AD site has become moot since boundaries are now having to be manually created by subnet or range. When a new subnet comes online or is taken off, not only does it have to be changed as a boundary and to subsequent groups but now any collections needing that range must also be updated. I'd rather one change to a group dynamically change all other collections tied to the group.
