  1. Customize reboot window for Feature Update different from Software Update

    It would be interesting to have a reboot message custom for the feature update different from the patch (software update), with different colors and message, so that users recognize the message and understand that you are installing the system update operational and it will take a little longer to install.

  2. Option to completely disable pre-caching /pre-download for clients by collection or boundary

    About half of our employees are field staffers, who often have to cope with bad mobile reception and abysmal bandwidths for days at a time. In such cases the additional load of pre-cached / pre-downloaded software and updates is less than ideal.

    We'd like to be able to disable all pre-loading / pre-caching permanently for those clients to allow the users to decide when to download and install their required software and updates, for example when they are at home or connected to a hotspot at the hotel.

    It would be good if we could deploy the setting to theā€¦

  4. Configuration Client Setting - Turn off Application Website Point

    Since SCCM CB 1806 itĀ“s possible to use Software deployment to user without Application Catalog Website Point.

    In an CAS environment it should be possible to turn off this setting otherwise if one primary server has installed this role, this setting will be setup to AUTOMATICALLY or you can select the server with the role installed.

    This is a problem if you use it in different location with different setup, to turn off brings up more flexibility.

    In my case i must now wait that other regions will remove this role.

  5. Client Proxy / Network Tab CMG

    With the addition in 1902 to be able to add a CMG to a boundary group, it would be nice to also have the client proxy settings from the Network tab to work when a device is on the Intranet but connected to the CMG. From testing it appears this configuration is only used when the client is on from Internet. But for customer's that want to use CMG for Slow Link Remote Offices they may also have a Proxy they have to connect through.

    Also would be nice if you could specify the Proxy setting with the client installā€¦

  8. Computer Restart policy needs more granularity

    Currently running SCCM CB 1806. I would love to see more policy settings for Computer Restart. As of today, we only have a "temporary notification" and a "permanent notification". Below would be nice to have:


    1. Set a time on how long the "temporary notification" displays for the user. The current display disappears way to fast and is not very beneficial to the end user unless they are literally staring at the systray.


    2. Customize the wording for the Restarts


    3. Allow us to enable/disable the Hide or Close button on either the "temporary" or "permanent" notifications


    4. Write to the scnotification log orā€¦

  9. Sccm reads windows security logs at startup

    The sccm client startup process is very heavy. On our machines we have a very demanding security baseline which gives us a huge windows security eventlog. Reading out this eventlog alone takes over 30 seconds at 25% CPU which makes the startup process of the computers even slower than it is. As we understand it SCCM reads pretty much the entire security log every time the service is started. Even if it's started twice in 30 minutes for whatever reason. We aren't sure what the point is of reading out 100MB of security logs, but it seems a waste. We'dā€¦

    Thank you for your feedback. Do you have user device affinity enabled in your environment? If you do, is it configured to automatically determine affinity? Changing user device affinity configuration may reduce this overhead.

    For more information, see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/apps/deploy-use/link-users-and-devices-with-user-device-affinity

    We will consider looking into ways to improve this in the future.

  10. Customize "new software is available" toast message

    Allow custom message on System Tray message, users think this is a malware installed on their computer and generate unnecessary tickets, specially users that do not deal with Software Center, those message should be configure on Client Settings.

  11. Required Restart if User does not Snooze

    I don't know why this is such a problem to communicate. I just want end-users to be able to snooze restarts up to a defined maximum period of time (including 'indefinitely'). The latest (2006) update now lets me do that with the "Configuration Manager can force a device to restart" set to "No" which now will present a prompt to the user that they can snooze all they want.....but I can't force a restart if no user is actually there to snooze.

    This is simple: I want to force a restart. IF a user is logged on, I want themā€¦

  12. Bitlocker (MBAM) Anti-Tamper

    As Bitlocker / MBAM is being fully integrated into SCCM, it would be useful to add an Anti-Tamper option so that end users with Admin Access are unable to remove Bitlocker Protection / Encryption without either a password (potentially similar to a recovery code from MBAM portal), or being granted access via SCCM with a new role.

    This would also potentially need to be expanded to the Client so that it isn't possible to remove the client, and then the protection.

  14. Fix naming inconsistencies

    Software Updates Deployment Evaluation Cycle and Schedule deployment re-evaluation are the same thing so the client action name should align with the client setting to avoid confusion.

    I think it's best to gather all other naming issues in a single thread. Feel free to add yours!

    Can you intregrate 2 dialogue box for message customization for user notification for both cases : Temporary notification and cannot close.

  18. Custom Client setting allows creating shared folder on a device, like SCCM Client log folder

    Enterprise security policy may block C$ share. File collection targeted to a collection may be also prohibited due to network traffic concern. It is troublesome to analyze sccm client log file for troubleshooting remotely even the support has local administrative right on the PC, as it requires to re-create the C$ share first, and unshare it later. It would be nice to also have an option to copy certain OS files to this share, for example, windowsupdate.log. RBAC should govern who can create the share and who can control the file copy list. This should make supporting SCCM environment easierā€¦

  19. Controlled UX for a Reboot Notification

    SCCM Reboot notification should have some checks and balances, Like reboot, prompt should not come if a user is in a presentation or Zoom Calls.
    We should be given control to include the process in a Client setting to be checked if in use and control prompting for a Reboot and once all checks pass, the Client setting should trigger and the user experience should get a popup for a reboot.

    This will help to continue with a standard reboot experience with all deployments including patching and no customer scripts needs to be developed
