  1. Computer Restart and patch installation notification before a Window hits.

    It would be nice to have a client setting that would allow for a notification before a maintenance window hits. So if I have a Window from 6PM - 5AM, and computer restart is set for 90 minute notification instead of it notifying me of a restart that will happen in 90 minutes at 6PM, it would notify a user at 4:30 that patches are going to apply and the computer will be restarting in 90 minutes.

  2. I would like to see devices that are online, even if they don't have a client installed. IE, they are pingable.

  3. Streamline SCCM Agent installation/upgrade for workgroup or another-AD-domain device

    Include wizard so that it is easier to upgrade SCCM client running on workgroup devices since this usually includes hosts file IP/FQDN update. SCCM 2012 seems to promote side-by-side SCCM Server upgrade instead of in-place SCCM Server upgrade. This makes it more frequent to update hosts file on workgroup devices. This issue is also applicable to devices running on another AD domain but joining the same SCCM 2012 Server.

  4. Overview pane to monitor automatic client upgrades to new service pack

    With R2SP1 automatic client upgrades will now function for the first time in an R2 environment.

    It would be nice if that deployment wasn't hidden though so we could actually see the progress of the clients being upgraded.

  5. Recovery partition

    When creating a recovery partition with the task sequence you only have the option of 1% to place at the end for succesfull creat a recovery partition.

    For a disk of 256 mb its 2.5 gb recovery
    512 mb -> 5gb recovery

    Please make ik possible to choose the space we want, suggestion of 1 gb as the larger the disk the larger the waste of space is.

  6. Chanage the SCCM Client installation so that it can be monitored for completion more easily.

    In cases where we need to install the SCCM client from a script or other process, Ccmsetup.exe launches sub processes then exits. This makes monitoring the installation difficult. It would be helpful to have the setup behave more like a traditional installer.

  7. The ability to set the Client Push installation syntax from the client push wizard.

    Currently the install syntax needs to be set before you initiate the client push request. If your pushing to multiple domains or forests, you need to adjust your syntax, then go back and select your targets to push to. It would be nice if you could specify the install syntax for the client push during the client push wizard.

  8. SCCM client shortcuts

    Shortcuts for the SCCM client should have the ability to be created on the start menu and the task bar. Today, the shortcut can only be created on the desktop

  10. Client deployment flexibility

    Please add a feature to be able to auto install the agent by device type. ie, servers, workstations, thin clients. Currently this is an all or nothing type thing, it would be nice to make it more granular.

  11. Pending restart not detected with ccm client upgrade

    When the CM client is upgraded on machines, sometimes there is a code 7 at the end of the install which means 'reboot needed' but in the console the pending restart is still on 'No'.
    Isn't it possible to reflect this reboot needed in the console 'pending restart' variable ?

  13. Deploy Application/Task Sequence directly from collection properties window

    I always find myself inside the collection properties window wanting to deploy an application or sequence. I then need to first make the necessary changes and memberships then go out and deploy.

    It will be much easier to be able to deploy within the window whilst adding memberships.

  14. Offline Deployments

    I would like to suggest an option for "Offline Deployment" to allow customers with low/limited bandwidth to perform self installs while offline.
    We have several low bandwith users (around 800) that basically live out of Hotels and secure locations. Deploying large packages/apps/Task sequences are always an issue because said deployments become available in Software Center, and yet the content has not arrived yet.
    Due to the nature of their work, we need to give them the ability to deploy apps/packages/task sequences on their schedule. Once a package is made available, it shows up in Software Center yet the bits areā€¦

  15. honnor / discard work hours for client upgrade

    Please provide an option to honor or disregard the (maintenance windows) working hours set locally. In some scenarios client does not update to the latest CU level when client only operates in the work hours and is shut down.

  17. Exclude workgroup computers from Automatic Client Upgrade

    When using ACU computers in workgroups cannot upgrade because they are not able to query Active Directory when "ccmsetup /upgrade" is executed. We have seen some scenarios where the installed client on workgroup machines crashed after each failing installation trial. It would be great if an option was implemented to either exclude workgroup computers or provide a list of domains that should be considered during ACU.

  19. Move Client to new Active Directory Organizational Unit during reinstallation

    While migrating our existing clients to windows 10 with a reinstall TS we need to move the Clients to another OU.
    It will be very good for us to get this realised with during the TS with a special function. "Join Domain" will not work to move the existing client to another OU.

  20. Create custom TS Variables with values depending on return code

    While running a task sequence I would like to see the option to create a custom Task Sequence Variable and it's value depending on a return code from a running step (cmdline, PowerShell script, Application, Package). This variable can be used later on in the TS to run or skip specific steps.
    Think about additional reboot steps if a BIOS flash is performed (if no flash is performed you don't want a reboot). Currently I need to create and run a powershell script to make this happen.
