  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. Warning message for high-impact collection changes

    When I started working with SCCM years ago I was told that you're not really an SCCM admin until you accidently deployed MS Office to the whole company. Through my years of working with SCCM I've seen many people update a collection not knowing that there was a mandatory deployment attached which resulted in the deployment getting sent to systems that were not intended.
    I would like to see a check/notification box added when a query based collection is updated that reminds you of the required deployments attached. This message will only show if an unexpired required advertisement is stillā€¦

  4. Delete Multiple deployments on a collection

    You can click on a Task Sequence Deployment and Delete all deployments listed, but if a Collection has multiple different deployments you can only delete 1 at a time. Not sure if this is a safety feature or not to prevent you from deleting deployments you want to keep.

  5. Server Groups - Run As Option

    There are times when the drain and resume scripts may need to run as an account other than the local system account of the server. We often support "clustered" servers that rely on a clustering method or data outside of Windows fail-over clustering (Exchange being a good example, but not the only use-case).
    It would be nice to specify a run-as account for these scripts in order to reach out to external systems using a service account in order to authenticate to those systems for any required health checks prior to patching (drain script) or after patching (resume script). Weā€¦

  6. Server Groups - Increase Length of Drain and Resume Scripts

    The drain and resume scripts are currently limited to 512 characters each. I know there is currently a request to add native cluster aware patching support, but it would be a great start to simply increase the size limit of the scripts. It doesn't seem like there is a safe way to "drain" a server from a cluster to prep it for patching in a mere 512 characters, especially considering that we have to use up some of those characters to return the correct exit code.

    We can run some pretty complex and lengthy scripts in configuration items and baselines,ā€¦

  8. 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.

  9. The ability to do a top down search on all collections.

    Search collections from the top down. It would be great to have the ability to search for collections anywhere in the top of the tree down. If you have multiple collections it would be so easy to have a search all function at the top in device collections to search all

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. Ability to create collections either as WMI(WQL) or SQL based.

    Back in the day Altiris had this ability to create collections based on SQL queries. I think this would be great as the provider in some cases work more effictiently and not need to do a translation if the query was already native. Not saying to get rid of WQL, but have the option to select sql based query and a text box to type or paste the SQL query.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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€¦
