  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Send Wake-up packets to a collection outside of a deployment

    It would be nice for remote management after hours to be able to send wake-up packets to computers so they could be remoted into

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  15. Collection Evaluation Priority

    Most of my customers have high priority collections (like OSD or important applications) and normal/low priority collections where ā€œslowā€ 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.

  16. Collection removes members after some time specified automatically

    Clients stored in a (temporarily) collection by a direct rule remain there until someone takes care if this is still needed. In my case this is done for packages which fix some issues and need to run only once on each defined client. Yes, this can be done by compliance settings or a query but it is easier for support staff picking a client and place it into a collection that fixes something a user is complaining about in a service ticket.
    So the wish is, that the collection clears (not deletes) itself after a specified time.

  17. 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.

  18. Direct membership rule

    As like Direct membership rule in adding machine to the collection, it would be nice if we have any rule for excluding single machines from the collection.

  19. 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.

  20. Changes only in case not understood while renaming collections

    Minor bug and easy to work around, just thought I'd point it out:

    Original collection name: "Foo Bar"

    Action: Rename to "Foo BAR"
    Expected result: "Foo BAR"
    Actual result: "Foo Bar" (no change)

    Action: Rename to "Foo Bar Baz"
    Action: Rename to "Foo BAR"
    Actual result: "Foo BAR"

    Basically, if you rename a collection and change *only* the case, SCCM doesn't "get the memo" ;).
