  1. Collection Columns

    Is it possible/can we please implement the ability to load collected system or user discovery data as columns for collections and the Users/Devices areas?

    (May be duplicated with an idea inside an idea of another Collection idea, but I did my fair share of browsing before posting this...)

    Currently there are only five or six columns available for the Users area in the console, and the ability to display custom collected active directory information from system discovery as a column such as 'Managed By' or 'Description' for a device in the devices area isn't available. Inclusively, data collected from theā€¦

  2. Add a security property to restrict users from enabling incremental updates on collections.

    A property within security roles needs to be made available for assignment which restricts users from enabling incremental updates.

  4. option to show whether the machine name's operating system is 32 bit or 64 bit

    Need to have an option to show whether the machine name's operating system is 32 bit or 64 bit under the device collections under the header

  5. Allow using SMS_R_USER and SMS_R_SYSTEM together when making query-based collections.

    If you try to write a query to generate a collection that attempts to cross reference objects between the SMS_R_USER & SMS_R_SYSTEM databases, you will get an error.

    This prevents you from being able to create a collection of systems based on the last user that logged onto a machine. It's also just frustrating.

  6. Leave Filtering on Collections when you leave the collection.

    When you filter a collection (example: Device Online Status), then move off of that collection to look at something else in the console, when you go back to that collection the filter is removed. I would like the filter to stay on the collection until I decide to remove it. That way I don't have to wait for a collection to load just to filter it again.

  9. 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.

  11. Collection column chooser filter and Search Criteria chooser list filter.

    In collection view, when adding a column, a live filter search would be really great since there are so many items to choose now. Same for collection search criteria. Iā€™m always searching for ā€˜Device Online Statusā€™ and ā€˜Pending Restartā€™ to add these and I spend too much time looking for them in the ever growing list šŸ˜Š Thank you for all the amazing choices to add!
    Furthermore, it would be nice if changing search from ā€˜current nodeā€™ to ā€˜All Subfoldersā€™ would not remove the filters Iā€™ve endured the pain to create.

  12. All devices are part of the same server group - Dont display any message for the client if the threshold is exceeded

    The "All devices are part of the same server Group" is a great feature, however, if you tick the check box for a collection, and the number of devices in that collection trying to install an update exceeds the threshold set, an error is displayed in Software Center saying "0x87D00666 - Software updates cannot be install outside service window". If the reason for the Update not to be installed is because of a threshold, it would be better if either no message is displayed at all, or a message telling the user that the update is queued and will beā€¦

  13. 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".

  14. Add a security property to control the collection refresh schedule.

    A property within security roles needs to be made available to prevent users from making changes to the collection refresh schedule. Also it might be worth having another option to allow changes to be made within set boundaries (e.g. a minimum refresh time, preventing collections being set to every 5 minutes).

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Trigger install of advertised software when adding to device collection

    It would be great when adding a single or multiple PC's to a device collection, that there could be an additional option under add Selected items: "add selected items to existing device collection and trigger machine policy and application deployment action." Maybe you could make it less wordy... but it would make some of our lives even more streamlined! Love RCT, but this could eliminate an extra step. Aint no body got time to wait for client policies :) Thanks!

  18. 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.

  20. An option to prevent collections from being accidently deleted, like AD ou's.

    An option to prevent collections from being accidently deleted, like AD ou's. It is still to easy to remove a collection. (yes, i am experienced.)
