  1. Align windows 10 upgrade experience between consumer and enterprise

    To support Windows 10 version upgrade, home users get one experience with nice looking popup and capabailities to postpone or define when to install. Enterprise user get an old school popup with only the option to run or cancel! User experience need to be aligned for the exact same action.

  2. Improvements for search functionality

    When searching, allow multiple "AND" filters on the same criterion. For example, when viewing All Windows 10 Updates in Windows 10 Servicing, I'm currently seeing 798 items. I can filter by language to reduce that, but I'd also like to filter on the title multiple times to exclude editions such as 'Education N', 'Pro N' and 'Team' but I can't because when I add a second Title filter, it automatically puts an "OR" operation next to it.

    Also, when searching for objects like Collections or Apps in a large sub-folder structure, would it be possible to include a column inā€¦

  3. Separate sections for boundary group preferred site systems or select the role the site system will provide for group

    We can assign MP, DP, and SUP to a boundary group as a client preference, but this is all within one section. It would be nice to have this broken up into the roles so we can assign accordingly. If you have servers with multiple roles you may not want clients using every role. If I have Server1 with the MP and DP role in one region and Server2 in another region with just MP. I have a boundary group set to use Server2 for MP and another server for a DP. Server2 goes down and I need to setā€¦

    Seems like the MMC snap-in has been removed from current versions. I wish it was still available.

  6. Option to schedule in-console update

    Hey. It would be so nice to be able to schedule updates to sccm from the Updates and Servicing node in the console.

  8. Maintenance Windows for Content Downloading

    Have an option within the Maintenance Window settings to not only apply the window to software updates and deployments but to the machines ability to download content as well. Sometimes there is a need to have a complete blackout of activity on machines during a certain window of time.
    This is not related to limiting the bandwidth for BITS but actually wanting nothing using resources disk, CPU etc. on the local machines.

  9. RBA Detailed report per Administrative User

    Ability to right click an "Administrative User" and have the ability to export their permissions to a detailed report.

    For example:

    The ability to see what permissions they have for a particular role when its matched to a scope and/or a collection.

    Right now I a maintain this in a spreadsheet. It is not enough to say this "Administrative User" is a package admin. Since we can create custom security roles, having the ability to see the specifics via a report per user will be very helpful.

    Also when a CM update is released, please include any additions, modifications orā€¦

  10. Use DNS for IP addresses

    Use DNS records for IP addresses instead of internally discovered IP. This allows machines to change their IP, between subnets or wired/wireless

  11. Support Scale Out File Server

    Currently SCCM doesnt support SQL Databases stored on a Scale Out File Server. The installation will error out when it queries WMI on the SQL Server, also queries embedded inside of hman.dll will cause errors as it expects to find a drive letter rather than a UNC path.

  14. AD User Discovery should support incremental discovery

    AD User Discovery should support incremental discovery when using groups as search base. Currently this is not supported. We have the challenge to discover user being located somewhere in the Active Directory, not being allowed to discover all users. Therefore, we have only the chance to put all users in a group and discover all users from this group. Unfortunately, delta discovery is not supported for AD User Discovery. For some reasons it's supported for AD Group Discovery, but not for AD User Discovery. It would be great if this could be enabled in particular because there is no realā€¦

  15. Improve reliability and performance of Pull Distribution Points

    Pull DP's are a great idea, however they are quite error prone and often just stop working. Search in any Configuration Manager forum for Pull DP's and you will see the same thing over and over, which is they often get stuck at "downloading content" and the only way to rectify it is to uninstall/reinstall the pull DP.

    As I said, I really like the idea of Pull DP's. But I would like to see the product team spend some more time on them to really get them working as efficiently and effectively as possible.

  16. Importing a new device with variables doesn't work if you don't have access to ALL devices\ All Systems Collection

    We have RBAC implemented such that console users do not have read permission to the All System collection. Instead, we have delegated collections of devices to which they can admin, using a query rule to include device objects created matching certain criteria (name starts with some defined value, no client registered, created via manual machine entry, CAS site code). The issue is that when using the computer import wizard and selecting to use a CSV for bulk import, the wizard crashes with a permission error when defining device variables. The wizard succeeds only if the devices are imported ignoring theā€¦

  19. effective permissions

    Provide the ability to see the effective permission of an administrative user in the security node. This can be similar to the effective policies for client settings. The RBA viewer provides the show me information but you are not able to pick an administrative user and see what all their inherited permissions are in the console.
