  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. maintenance windows: skip date or add an end date

    I'd like a possibility to exclude some date from the maintenance windows schedule, or add an "effective end date" after wich the MW would stop.
    my scenario
    windows every two week on Thursday, I'm asked to skip the next one due to exams or other reason (school environment.) several time a year.
    right now I change the effective start date for after those event, but I can't do it too much in advance, or there won't be any maintenance until this new effective date.
    and if I do it too late, then the computers may not receive the new settingsā€¦

  6. 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.

  7. Collections w/ maintenance windows - new icon

    Make a new icon for collections with a maintenacne window enabled. This would make it easier to discover which collections have a maintenance window enabled in the console.

  8. Device Collection for Group Membership

    Today you can easily create a user collection based on AD Group where the collection has a direct membership for the group. However, this is not true for computers where you cannot add a group to a device collection.

    This should be possible as many organizations also create group for computers and having to look for each membership causes a performance issue when you have many groups/group membership

  11. Allow Active Directory Distribution Lists to be Targeted for Deployments in Collections as a Group Resource

    Allow Active Directory Distribution Lists to be Targeted for Deployments in Collections as a Group Resource. Currently AD DLs are not able to be targeted, just AD Security Groups are able to be targeted.

  12. Increase performance of incremental collections so that the best practice limit of 200 can be increased

    Incremental collections are an invaluable component of Configuration Manager 2012 that is unfortunately held back by the performance implications of having too many (based on the best practice limit of 200). While the -need- for frequent updating collections was reduced based on an applications conditions, there is still an industry preference to manage application availability using Active Directory groups. As a result, the number of collections potentially benefiting from incremental collection updates is high. I work around this by parsing collections that reference AD groups, checking if they've been updated recently and then requesting collections updates of relevant collections. Thisā€¦

  13. Create collection from report

    It would be nice to be able to easily create a collection from the results of a report and even have it update dynamically. A report based collection could lead to more proactivity within SCCM.

  14. Create a collection based on computers that can install a specific driver using hardware IDs collected and match against hardware IDs in the

    Allow for the ability to create a collection/query based on computers that can install a specific driver using hardware IDs collected and match against compatible hardware IDs in the driver inf file. This would help to determine what drivers are compatible with what computers in a more efficient way. Then deploy the driver package to those computers to update (using devcon.exe or similar). Third party driver management (through updates catalogs) are still storage hungry and cumbersome. This would be a very effective solution.

  16. SCCM Device Collection Query Rule Check

    When creating or modifying a device collection using a query rule can SCCM include an option to provide an output of the results before applying. Maybe it could open in Monitoring > Queries to show the results and then once verified the Apply button can be clicked. This could prevent a mis-configured query resulting in deployments to devices that were added inadvertently. It could also reduce a step from having to create an actual query and then importing that query.

  17. Server Groups - Non Clustered Servers

    Can we increase the functionality of the Server Groups feature on collections to allow us to control non-clustred servers

    For example, when patching I have a collection for Hyper-V hosts, but want to ensure that onyl one Host is down at any one time, and not all of them at once!

  18. 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€¦

  20. Choose subfolder when creating a new collection from the right-click menu

    When you use the right click menu to add a user or device to a new collection (which opens the wizard to create a new collection), it defaults to the root collection node. We manage our collections with multiple folders and sub-folders, and it would make management easier if we could change the location where the new collection will be created instead of tracking it down after creation and manually moving it to the desired location.
