  1. When updating content, wait to remove old content

    When updating content, don't automatically remove the old content on the DP's until the copy starts. Sometimes what happens is if there is a slow content transfer already taking place. The new content update waits for it to complete before it starts the transfer, so during that time the old content is not available (causing task sequences, packages, and applications that use the content to fail).

  2. Custom Restart Timeout For Each Deployment

    When deploying an application (or a package), a menu for restart option will be a good option. In client settings, there is a specific restart time, but when we need immediate restart after the application deployment, it is required more than one step.

  3. Customizable Deployment Alerts

    Instead of the threshold for successful deployment(Less than % Success) and Threshold for failed deployment(More Than % Failure).

    Add the ability to select from a list of scenarios:
    Success > 99%
    Success < 50%
    Failure > 10%
    InProgress < 0%

    I would sometimes like to receive an email when the deployment finished with one of those thresholds that provides the report of Success, InProgress, Failures at a specified time after the deployment or end of maintenance window.

  5. Update content on Distribution Points ā€“ allow use of revision N-1 content in Task Sequences

    We are supporting companies around the globe out of our Configuration Manager; it goes from Australia to Americas. So, we have all the time someone deploying a machine using the OSD task sequence. But we also have to update content used in the Task Sequence.
    If ā€˜Update Distribution Pointsā€™ is started and a new revision is created, the content goes in yellow (in Progress) on all DPs. If you now want to start a Task Sequence, it will fail due to missing content. If some DPs have blackout times, e.g. not allowed to replicate content during daytime, it is evenā€¦

  6. Ability to move Distribution point from one secondary site server to another secondary site server' has been merged into this idea

    when we need to remove secondary site server or when need to rebuild secondary site server with another site code. A full uninstall and re install required for all Distribution points associated with that secondary site.
    Also when we need to move a DP from one site code to another site code, it requires uninstall / re installā€¦.to avoid this it will be helpful to have ability to move DPā€™s between secondaries.

  7. Add Summary Statistics to Deployment Status View

    In the main Deployments tab when you select a deployment, it shows a summary of the Completion Statistics [img1]. When viewing the status of that deployment, the pie chart remains but the statistics of each status can no longer be quickly seen [img2]. One has to go into each status tab to view the numbers. -cheers

  8. An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it.

    An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it. This will help manage DP disk space efficiently as most of the content never gets used at a remote site but we do not know what's really needed in advance. With semi annual channels the content problem is getting worse each day.

    Below is the config manager thread I had opened and an expert asked me to submit a request here.

  9. Make Package Conversion Status Dashboard clickable

    Can you make the Package Conversion Status Dashboard clickable so you can see the data behind the conversion readiness for packages. Without this data you need to write a SQL script to get the data for all packages from the database.

  10. Bind MP & DP to boundary

    Make it optional wether a client should use normal logic to identify MP and DP or hardcode which site system(s) to use.

    Boundary A : normal behavior
    Boundary B : MP = Server1 DP=Server3

  11. Custom Tab for Monitoring Deployments

    Any chance you guys could make an option to have a custom tab for monitoring deployments? I use the Powershell App Deployment Toolkit and it sends error code 60012 when the user defers the installation, It would be nice if I could create a custom tab for that error code with a custom pie color that lets me know how many users have selected the defer option. Or at least make it so I can label my errors, I have tried using Return Codes but the error name and description is always Unknown Error (60012) inside the console.

  12. Content Status in Peer Cache Sources

    We need to see which content is in cache of peer cache source computers. It is possible with SQL query, but there is no builtin screen/menu in console for that. It will ease the management of peer cache source computers in boundary groups without DP

    It can be like 'Content Status' menu for only for Peer Cache Source Computers.

  13. Move all the dashboards currently residing in the Software Library into the Monitoring workspace

    As stated, it would make sense for the dashboards for Win 10 Servicing, Office 365 and DA to be locate in the monitoring workspace where we monitor things in CM.

  14. When entering NEW IP Subnet convert them to IP Range

    Since you need to enter the subnet mask when entering an IP Subnet, it would make sense to convert these to IP Ranges. Then add the subnet details to the description. The major benefit of this is to allow for better boundary reporting. Using the table BoundaryEx which listed the NumbaricValueLow and NumericValueHigh value you can easily determine if a client belong to that IP Range. This is done by using the fnGetNumericIPAddress function.

  15. When creating NEW AD Boundaries

    Since SCCM is reading the AD site, it would make sense that you read each subnet too. Then create a boundary group based on the AD site name and convert all of the AD subnets to IP Ranges and add those IP Ranges to the Boundary group.

    The major benefit of this is to allow for better Boundary reporting. Using the table BoundaryEx which listed the NumbaricValueLow and NumericValueHigh value you can easily determine if a client belongs to that IP Range. This is done by using the fnGetNumericIPAddress function.

  16. Seperate repoistory & ccmcache directory on client

    If OS supports Dedup.
    Enable this feature as a pre-requisite to client installation.
    Create a vhdx (mounted as the ccmcache folder.
    Create 2 primary folders in this vhdx (repository & cache)
    set the repository folder as the cmcache folder for downloads.
    subfolder should be named by the guid of the application in console.. not a random folder.. with ".x" designation for the content version.

    When applications are executed from ccmcache.. copy those folder contents to a cache matching folder.. and execute from there..

    This will prevent hash mismatch when peer sharing files.

    enable Deduplication on the vhdx file.. and youā€¦

  17. Binary differential replication column

    Software Library node - Software Updates - Deployment Packages:
    Would be nice to have a column so you can see at a glance which packages are enabled for binary differential replication.

  18. Delete multiple Deployments from a Collection

    Can we have an option to delete multiple deployments from a given collection?

    For Example. Class A may have 10 Application deployments to it. If I want to remove them, I have to delete each deployment one by one. I would like the option to select multiple deployments and click delete once, rather than 10 times. Perhaps a right-click menu option on the collection to 'Remove all deployments'?

  19. rate limits for client, instead or BITS throttling Transfer rate

    It would be super cool to set rate limits for Transfer to Clients in Clients settings, instead of setting hardcoded Throttling Transfer rate as we have. Because it is hard to figure out what are the Transfer possibility from a DP to a Device, if we can have the same setting for rate limits as we have in DP properties where the transfer calculation is build implace.

  20. Deployment Status - Add additional column for Primary User or Logged on User

    When viewing deployment status (specifically an application or update deployed to a device collection), a simple and easy win would be to add additional column for Primary User and/or Logged on User for all the compliant states (Compliant, In Progress, Error, and Unknown)

    The columns that are currently there are:

    Device
    User
    Software
    Collection
    Status Type
    Deployment Type

    User column does not show helpful information, only SYSTEM.
