  1. Disable "Configure Automatic Updates" when enabling software updates on clients

    When enabling software updates for clients in client settings, a local policy configures the ā€œintranet service update locationā€. It would make sense to also disable the ā€œConfigure automatic updates policyā€ under Computer Configuration -> policies-> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components-> Windows Update in the same local policy. This would prevent duplicate notifications from the Windows update service and prevent admins installing updates from Windows Update when a SUP is configured

  2. Create a scheduled task to wake computer for deployments

    Instead of relying on the WOL option which requires a lot of configuration have the client create and remove a scheduled task with the "Wake up computer to run this task" option to facilitate deployments that happen outside of the maintenance windows.

  3. Block a specific application on client machines

    There should be option in client settings or windows defender policies to block an application.

  4. As a Tech, We don't have view permission on sub collection. cannot give only read permission on to the collection

    As a Tech, we cannot see collection members as our sys admin block. They said they cannot grant only view permission as SCCM doesn't have that feature. If they give permission, we can add and remove members from the collection. So, every time we need to query the members from whole device list.

  5. BranchCache

    Could we please have more granular controls of BranchCache - as an example we have a mixed environment with a lot of laptops - it would be useful to exclude laptops from BranchCache (perhaps via WMI query on battery present), but include the PC's and Servers. We have had to turn BranchCache off because of the impact it was having on our SQL server, which has now seen our network traffic increase as well as load on our DP's.

  6. Custom Client Settings Configuration Deployable to a User-Based Collection

    At present, there is no option for deploying a custom client settings configuration to a user-based collection. Can you make this available? Afterall, a user-based collection is really a workstation based collection based on the particular users involved. I've needed to set custom restart deferral configs for a particular app deployment that i'd like to target users with, but I don't have this option as a custom client settings config can only target workstation based collections.... whats up with that? :)

  8. ccm client powershell to install available updates

    Have a small powershell module to support client actions. Currently installing available updates on a machine running Core windows server OS is not simple to action. Having this option to triger client actions from on the client. Having PS Module available to trigerthis and other actions would be useful.

  9. Include Client settings origin when RSOP

    Whenever you request the RSOP for client setting, the origin of the the hosting client settings name is shown.

    It would be easier to debug to see what Client Setting is applied for that certain setting. (like it is being done with an RSOP request from GPO's)

  10. Client Actions - display confirmation OK in the body of the dialog.

    Rather than clicking the OK dialog after selecting a task, which is too many clicks for the workplace safety folks, can the message be permanently shown at the bottom of the dialog?
    thanks heaps.

  11. Automate client remediation with System Center Endpoint Protection

    Automate client actions with Endpoint Protection. When a alert is generated due to infection automatically scan the device (either quick or full) and then email on completion and/or status.

  12. Make Randomization Delay for Policy Retrieval configurable

    The configured Policy retrieval interval is delayed by up to 60 minutes which is way too much for some scenarios, e.g. a user waiting for a software to be deployed or an installation of a new ConfigMgr agent on a machine with more than one client settings object deployed to it (leading to either only default settings applied or all of them, no consistent results). There should be an option to switch on/off the randomization or configure the value (preferably a percentage of the configured interval, not a fixed number of minutes).

  14. Option to Create Client Share for CCMLogs

    Add an option to create a hidden share (\ComputerName\CCMLogs$) on Client Computers that allows certain users access to view CCMLogs without having to re-authenticate with an Admin Account. Or re-enter Credentials in Support Center each time.

    Permissions to the share could be controlled in the same way as Remote Control Users.

  15. sccm client icon must always visible in system tray, so that users can see that updates are available to install

    Because many of my users only logon once a week after the weekend. If updates are available for install this users only see a message when they logon after the weeked and this only for a few seconds. I would like that my users can see all the time that updates are available just as it was whit wsus and the windows update icon

  16. ability to modify the software center toast notications in configmgr as per the Organisation requirement

    Every organization will have their own way to convey the message to their end point users with Software updates/Application install or OSD upgrades.

    So Organization can be given opportunity to amend these notification s as per the requirement.

    can this be verified and implemented.

  18. Discovery Data Cycle at boot

    Add a setting which would allow customers to configure clients to perform a Heartbeat Discovery/Discovery Data Collection cycle every time the system boots. This would help ensure that details like the client's Operating System Build number gets updated in the MECM DB promptly after upgrades in place/Feature Release updates without requiring customers to configure their Heartbeat Discovery to run at frequent intervals, which might be more detrimental in environments with large numbers of clients. Customers often create Collections for deploying Applications/Packages/settings changes to Devices based on the OS Build Version (e.g. customizations specific to the new OS version currently beingā€¦

  19. Add ability to set a time for when Client Settings are deployed

    The ability to set a time (similar to a deadline on a software deployment) in which a deployed custom client settings would become enabled would be a wonderful feature. Consider a scenario in which a custom client setting is created with the following settings:

    State Messages every 5 minutes
    Computer Restart: amount of time after deadline to restart = 2 minutes
    If I have a deployment with a deadline of 10pm, deploying this custom client setting to a collection at 3pm would not be very wise. But, if the ability to deploy the client settings with a configurable "take effectā€¦

  20. Client Settings on Boundary Groups

    I'd like to see the option of deploying custom client settings directly to boundary groups so that we can provide bespoke settings based on a particular site. I'm not aware of a method to create a collection based on a boundary group but having the option to assign client settings directly to a BG would be useful.
