  1. ConfigMgr Web Console

    Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.

    The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.

    With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.

    • Improve PC lifecycle management feature

      ConfigMgr should have better PC lifecycle management.

      E.g. following features:
      - Recognize potential devices that are removed from the network e.g. devices that are removed/disabled from AD, not active within ConfigMgr
      - When removing a device from ConfigMgr, the device should be removed also from AD/Intune/CMDB. There should be a way to provide a custom command to remove the device from 3rd party CMDB
      - Create a workflow with multiple conditions and steps with optional approval

      • Pending Reboot Indicator in Software Center

        It would be helpful, particularly for installing large batches of updates or multiple applications, if Software Center could indicate if Windows has a Pending Reboot. Perhaps an 'indicator light' or something like that in the top right corner. Many times I have been trying to install things via Software Center only to watch the items wait at 'Waiting to Install.' At least one reboot is needed to kick those waiting items into motion.

        • Native Certificate TPM Attestation during deployment

          at the moment we need to use scripts with passwords in it against a CES/CEP because SMS Agent is in provisioning mode. It would be great to do certificate enrollments during deployment with the certificate enrollment point as the proxy. we use tpm attested certificates to check if the machine is known to increase security

          • Allow "uninstall content settings" to be modified using PowerShell

            Monthly updating of applications like FlashPlayer, Java, Chrome, Reader DC, Office 365 Client, etc. are repetitive and tedious, so I like to automate monthly applications updates as much as possible. When creating a new application using powershell, I cannot set the "Uninstall content setting" located under the Deployment Type and the Content tab. This allows me to save on downloading large sets of files to uninstall when either an "MSIEXEC /X {GUID}" handles it with no files required, or something like Office 365 Client where 1.5 GB is needed to install, but only 5MB or so to uninstall.

            The command…

            • show the next maintenance window in software center

              Make it easy in software center to see the next maintenance window, and what will install then.

              • Refresh Task Sequences inside WinPE

                Can we please have an option to refresh the list of available task sequences when PXE Booting?

                At present, we have to reboot the machine in order for a new Task Sequence to show, or if any changes have been made to that TS after PXE Booting (eg you forget to Distribute a package, or disable/enable a step).

                • Unicorn emoji support in the console 🦄

                  I think it’s time we all agreed that there aren’t enough unicorns in the console. I’d like to see support for unicorn emojis when I’m clicking around. The good unicorns for when things are going well and the evil ones for when I messed up something and it’s bad.

                  • Improve and speed up adding or removal processes of direct members to collections, optimize handling in backend

                    We need a quick way to quickly populate or empty collections. Targets should be imported as rules without triggering other processes in the background (eval/re-built). The same also applies to removal rules.

                    Please implement something like an cmdlet “Add-CollectionMemberRules” / “Remove-CollectionMemberRules” with fast adding rules method, without delays, without rebuilding the complete collection sets in the background. The cmdlet should support especially adding rules like "DirectMembers".

                    Note:
                    This will help to control and steer application (ramp-up / ramp-down) rollouts, depending on device target lists, created by internal IT or delivered by business partner. The lists could based on different information…

                    • Need WSUS Maintenance tasks

                      There should be a few built in maintenance tasks to go through and complete all the maintenance tasks that are needed for WSUS. I find having to run through these steps every month to be quite tedious requiring a lot of change control each month to get the maintenance work completed for WSUS.

                      Everything described in this article should be automatically done by CM: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configurationmgr/2016/01/26/the-complete-guide-to-microsoft-wsus-and-configuration-manager-sup-maintenance/

                      • Windows Store for Business icons in Software Center

                        Creating an online/offline install for an application from Wsfb should add the icon from the store to the application in SCCM / Software Center.

                        A custom icon can be added but unlike standard apps there is no way to extract the icon from the application.

                        Integrating the store icons would go a long way to polishing the end result for users.

                          We found some strange behavior's when having a Pull DP deployed and will deploy a SCCM Agent later. This occurs only when the newest Client version has not been upgraded to production.
                          According to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712321.aspx> the versions must be the same.

                          • FIX: Viewing Application Deployment Types Takes a Long Time

                            Viewing application deployment types takes a long time, up to a minute or more, due to inefficiently authored WQL in .\XmlStorage\ConsoleRoot\SoftwareLibraryNode.xml.

                            When you find this WQL:

                            SELECT dt.* FROM SMS_DeploymentType AS dt JOIN SMS_CIRelation AS rel ON dt.CI_ID=rel.ToCIID JOIN SMS_Application AS app ON app.CI_ID = rel.FromCIID WHERE app.CI_UniqueID='##SUB:CI_UniqueID##' AND rel.relationtype=9 ORDER BY rel.Priority

                            and replace it with this WQL:

                            SELECT dt.* FROM SMS_DeploymentType AS dt where dt.CI_ID in (Select rel.ToCIID from SMS_CIRelation AS rel where rel.FromCIID in (Select app.CI_ID from SMS_Application AS app where app.CI_UniqueID='##SUB:CI_UniqueID##') AND rel.relationtype=9)

                            in SoftwareLibraryNode.xml, data returned is identical and viewing application deployment types is reduced…

                              (New) Software Center is way too slow with say 100+ software and it loads software in batches of 60. If "Sort by:" is used or another tab is visited then loading begins again. And again in the batches of 60.
                              Implement some kind of a cache (and maybe poll wmi in the background) to speed things up and make UI usable.

                                Show Skype for Business status of computer's primary user within ConfigMgr admin console. Only show the online status if the admin console compyuter has SfB installed. Also, make this optional.

                                Additionally add an option to start SfB chat with the user by right-clicking the computer/user from admin console.

                                Skype for Business is a great way to provide support to users and you can share the screen even with computers on internet.

                                • Set CCMEXEC Service to "Auto" while running a OS Task Sequence

                                  It would be cool, if you set the CCMEXEC Service to "Auto" automatically while running a Task Sequence. After OS Deployment run, it sould be set to "Delayed" again.

                                  This would Speed up OS Deplyoment up to 15 Minutes!

                                  • Bug with SW Center custom client interface settings

                                    When there have been previous customizations in 1710 or earlier in Administration->Client Settings->Default Settings->SW Center and there has been custom logo or other customizations, after the upgrade to 1802 as now the Custom Settings are moved to a new Windows Form and it Fails to load with unhandled exception System.IO.InvalidDataException: Invalid format in settings xml.

                                    This has happened for 2 Environments for us so far, upgrading from 1710 to 1802. However, we had no issue with the upgrade of a fresh Environment from 1702 to 1802.

                                    • dependencies not shown

                                      When installing application with dependencies etc number of “components” is shown – It would be much more user friendly to show the dependencies etc
                                      Only the info number of components is useless , user wants to know which !

                                      • Enable deadline randomization for Applications and Packages in addition to software updates

                                        Deadline randomization is currently in place for software updates only. We were hoping that would expand to both applications and packages as well. This would reduce the demand for applications and package installations in a shared environment (virtual). We currently have this available with software updates. We'd like to see the scope expanded to include package and applications.

                                        • Correct IP-subnet Description on Active Directory Forest Discovery

                                          Make Active Directory Forest Discovery also fetch proper IP-Subnet Description set on AD. Not that generic "site.local/sitename/0.0.0.0/mask"
