  2. 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.

  4. Exclude Query within Membership Rules

    Currently you have Direct Rule, Query Rule and Include/Exclude collections, could this be ā€˜redesignedā€™ to allow exclude on query and possibly direct rule?

    This will prevent the requirement to create an additional collection to exclude objects from a collection.

  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€¦

  7. 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.

  8. To be able to search a computer using Mac address Or searching computers which have specific memory available in the devices collection

    To be able to search for computer / device which binds to a specific Mac address or to search the Mac address of a computer by typing the computer name in the preview pane rather than doing a query.

    If we type a computer name in the search it could show the Mac address of the system or vice versa (without being able to put it in a query) and be able to delete the resource from there if needed.

    It can take more time to show all the properties but there are software's which show the details of aā€¦

  9. collection view

    When creating a collection you can specify which columns to show. If you leave this blank ConfigMgr will use a default set of columns. In ConfigMgr 1511 however it will always revert back to the default columns...
    When we specify which columns to show it should only show those.
    E.G. have a collection of Windows 10 devices and the columns could show Name (name of the client) and OS build number (10240, 10586 or 1507, 1511 etc.)

  11. Collections Set to incremental (Report)

    With MS recommended that no more then 200 collections are set to incremental, I would like to see a report on \Assets and Compliance\ Overview\ page that shows how many collections you have, how many are full update, how many are incremental, and how many are manual.

  12. 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.

  13. Add Computer / User Collections to the Summary Pane

    Add a list of the Computer or User collections to the 'Summary' pane, under Assets And Compliance \ Devices or Users.

    Every time I install SCCM for a customer, I'm asked 'how do I see collections for a device or user'. I don't want to have to tell them to install third party tools, or to run a report, or the other kind of bad solutions we have today.

  14. Enable additional system properties as a column choice in device collections

    You cannot add some system resource properties as a column in a device collection. Example "Last Logon User Name". I know you can create a custom console, but would be nice to have out of the box.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  18. When Creating a Deployment, Allow the Collection Search to Include Site-Wide, not Just the Root

    Currently when we create a deployment it asks for the collection. When we browse for the collection defaults to the root. I would like it to do a site-wide search for the collection as we start to type. This will save a lot of time rather than searching through all folders.

  19. 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.

  20. Removal of 'Update flag' in the collections' properties should work

    To remove the 'Update' flag within the property window of a collection isn't enough to stop the update. You need to set the schedule to 'none'. --> To remove the Update Flag should be enough.
