  1. Set or remove scheduled full update time to a selected group of collections

    When creating multiple collections, unchecking the schedule full update time, is sometimes overlooked. It would be nice to be able to select several collections and either set or remove scheduled update settings. Or add a column option to show the scheduled update times to avoid having to go into properties for each collection. TY!

      • Increase results displayed or enable a filter window for criterion selection when creating a query for collection membership.

        Currently when creating a collection based on installed software or software version there is a limit to the returned results based on criterion. If the item you are looking for is far enough down the list, you can't see it to select it. Adding additional rows to display on the return or a filter window would be greatly beneficial

        • 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".

          • 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 :(

            • 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.

              • I would be nice if in the Devices view there was an option to display the currently logged on user and the IP of the device

                I would be nice if in the Devices view there was an option to display the currently logged on user and the IP of the device so that I would not have to run a query all the time to get that information.

                  • UserName and MachineName displayed in Collections

                    I'd like to be able to view UserName and MachineName as a column in Collections. If the user logs into multiple machines then have SCCM select the most recent date or the machine with the most minutes logged-in.

                    • Referenced Collections

                      I would like to be able to easily see which collection that my collection is referenced to.

                      I can easily see what collections are referenced in my collection, but knowing if I make a change to the membership of x collection then it could effect the membership of y collection would be handy

                      • Ability to disable some AD system discoveries.

                        Our current AD Sys Discovery takes over 2 days to process. It would be great to be able to disable some or all of them without deleting the configuration from the discovery method so that I could target specific domains. Currently if I need to target a specific, I have to delete all of the other ones. Or leave it, and wait 2 days for it to finish.

                        • Limit a Collection to Max Number of Machines for Licensing

                          It would be nice if you could create a feature for collections that could limit the number of machines that could appear in a certain collection. Say you have 5 licenses of a software, you wouldn't want 6 or more machines to appear in the collection as you don't have a license for the 6th machine. Just a thought.

                                • 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.

                                  • Easier access to collection query editing

                                    It would be really nice if I could get to edit the query on a collection with just one click, rather than having make 7 clicks. Even if it was just available from the Right Click menu that would be a huge improvement.

                                      • Create Collection by importing CSV or TXT of device/user

                                        Many times during a project or deployment of a new software we will need to deploy to a specific set of computers. These will most of the times consists of a list of computer names in an Excel file. A native way when you create your collection to import a CSV or TXT with a list of device name to automatically populate your collection would be a very nice addition

                                        • Collection Evaluation Priority

                                          Most of my customers have high priority collections (like OSD or important applications) and normal/low priority collections where “slow” evaluation is not a problem.
                                          For those high priority collections, it would be great if you could configure that the collection evaluation always runs first, even if other collections are in the queue.
                                          It would be great if you can configure the priority, like you can do it for content replication.
