  1. Improve Accuracy of Long Standing Deployment Status in the Console

    Following an upgrade/recovery of my SCCM environment, older Software Update Deployments exhibited a problem where a small subset of previously patched systems started showing up as Unknown. Following a rather long diagnostic process, it appears as though these older deployments are being Evaluated as a matter of routine process, but are missing state messages on affected clients for the Enforcement or Compliance of the deployment. These software updates had been previously installed, so no new enforcement message would be sent without an addition of an update to the Update Group, and the messages previously sent in the database were notā€¦

  2. Ability to edit deployment popup banner visible to end users

    Give us the ability to edit the deployment banner visible to end users when deploying new applications or software updates. Users normally receive the generic message for all deployments. I would like to edit either within client settings or provide a checkbox during the new deployment window "Edit Deployment message", Therefore, would allow us to edit the message based upon the type or deadline time requirement for either application or software updates.

  3. Enable Alerts function for 'Available' deployments

    Currently you can only configure a compliance alert for a deployment that is Required, this option should be enabled for Available deployments as well for those of us who want to use it.

    There are various scenarios where this might be useful, you may simply want an email notification if no-one is bothering to use software you made available after a month to save you having to check.
    Or due to some internal reason you may not be able to enforce restarts on particular machines and have tasked staff to do it manually, and want a notification if this hasn'tā€¦

  4. It would be nice to have a more direct/quicker route to a list of the infected computers when we receive a notification about malware.

    When we receive notifications of malware infections, it's at least a few clicks before we see what has actually been infected. Having this information displayed immediately could help reduce remediation time and potentially prevent an infection from having the time to spread more. This would be especially helpful if we could see more relevant details in the e-mail notification as well.

  6. Add deployment status of waiting for Maintenance Window

    It would be beneficial to show how many clients are waiting for a maintenance window to start the given deployment. Possibly on the "In Progress" tab. Would also be nice to show which maintenance window it is waiting for.

  7. Add a 'Deployments Tab' to the individual Device view

    With the past few releases we've seen the addition of multiple tabs to the individual Device view, such as 'Client Settings.' I think it would be great if there was a 'Deployments' Tab here where you could see all Deployments associated with that Device and its real-time Compliance Status.

    Consider the following. I'm imaging 5 machines to add to a Lab and each machine gets 20-30 Application Deployments before it is ready for Production. In that case I either have to open up all those Applications in the Monitoring Node, run Summarization, and keep scrolling through all of that. Orā€¦

  8. Collect success and failure for deployments using the Cloud Management Gateway and Cloud DP

    We have deployed the Cloud management gateway and Cloud Distribution Point into Azure. We cannot collect successful deployment information from these resources in any meaningful way. It would be great to get metrics such as number of successful Windows Update deployments or Software deployments via the cloud or distribution point usage via the cloud. Currently when I add the Outbound Data Transfer column for Cloud DP it is blank which I know is false due to seeing the traffic for our Cloud DP in the Azure logs.

  9. Use osdcomputername when sending status messages

    When checking status messages for OSD new systems send messages as MININT-XXXXXXX, would be nice if they sent messages as their destined computer name

  11. Try Again button in Configuration manager Deployment monitoring

    After deployment to a certain machine gets an error that can be dealt with it stays in error tab even after the error cause is fixed. It would be nice to force another try of deployment to a certain machine from Configuration manager.
    i.e Deployment to PCA fails due to insuficient disk space.
    User free some space on the designated PC.
    PC
    A still stays in failed tab in deployment (waits for another automatical try?)
    Admin sees the failed deployment for PCA in Deployment monitoring "error' tab.

  12. Add Delay Counts to Deployment Status

    Under Deployment Status, you have the basic tabs Success, In Progress, Error, Requirements Not Met, and Unknown. When an application delays installing due to selections in the deployment settings (i.e. "Delay enforcement of this deployment according to user preferences, up to the grace period defined in client settings") these return codes are shown as "Errors" in the deployment. This can throw off numbers in regards to how successful a deployment is. In the cases of a delayed deployment, SCCM hasnā€™t even tried to install the application, so why is that counted as an error? The proposal here is to createā€¦

    Scenario: Software Deployment via Phased Deployment
    Phase1: Deployment "Required" to "Testcollection"
    Phase2: Deployment "Available" to "All Users"

  14. Pause an active deployment

    Sometimes we have to quickly stop an app deployment from taking place for one reason or another. The only way to accomplish this is to delete the deployment along with any immediate statistics regarding who the deployment may have affected. It would be great if an app deployment could be paused or disabled (similar to what can be done with a SUG deployment).

  15. Overview status of all deployments for a single device/user

    We have the ability to monitor the Status of a single deployment. It would be very helpful if we can monitor the Status of all deployments of a single device/user.

    Clicking the device/user in Monitor-Ribbon it Shows all deployments which are deployed to the item and shows the current Status for each deployment. It would makes Monitoring much easier in Troubleshooting Case when a certain device/user ist effected.

  17. Outstanding Windows updates

    Show windows updates outstanding with the computername and allow right click and install missing update.

    currently its a painful and very time consuming excercise checking to see what update isn't installed, creating a collection, adding computer to collection and deploying update package.. we got over 6000 devices so can imagine the time and effort to manage monthly updates.
    Kaspersky got it right but company doesn't want to pay the licensing cost

  18. i could able to pull or copy the machine

    In Deployment monitoring on the "Asset details" column

    i am able to select single pc to see the error details but unable to copy the content from the console its read-only i believe probably you should make some changes
    so, we can live information can be copied in detailed to excel or either live import present data to have it in single sheet as bulk.

    so my suggest is :- if we get an option enabled to copy whole should not be read-only the information from the Asset details column
    it may be falls under "Compliant\In-progress\Error\Unknown" column

    so, with thisā€¦

  19. Deployment End Time

    It would be wonderful to have a deployment End Time to match the Deployment Start time for active or past deployments. This would allow a quick reference to see when deployments have started and ended.

  20. Custom Error Codes for Chained Programs

    Instead of "failing" and stop running on all non-zero return codes, allow acceptable return codes to determine if the install sequence fails or continues. Example, uninstall an MSI to be sure it's not there but if it's not, generates a 1605 return, yet this is really a soft error which we currently have to use a BAT or VB script so we don't get a "failure". It should be up to the engineer to determine what is and is not a "failure". Of course, out of the box any non-zero should continue to be a failure.
