    • Use SCCM to remote control multiple monitors

      When using SCCM to remote control multiple monitors; allow the ability to select only one monitor to be remote controlled; vs. the option now of only stretching.

      • Install Servicing Stack Updates Before Other Updates

        Currently, when servicing stack updates and regular updates are deployed in the same software update group, the patches do not apply in a determinant order. This leads to cases where a cumulative update that requires a new servicing stack is installed before the servicing stack itself.

        While this can be worked around by separately deploying the servicing stack update before updates that require said servicing stack, it would be much more convenient if the update installation process checked if there are any servicing stack updates to be deployed and automatically installed them first

        • SCCM Wizards to provide Associated Log file Details - Similar to SCCM Update Monitor Wizard

          How about providing associated log file details at the end of the summary / completion page of all SCCM Wizards to help SCCM admins. I think it would be helpful. What you think?

          For example if you are creating a SUP role -> Add Site System Roles Wizard -> Completion page will have the log file name -> SUpsetup.log

          Do you love SCCM updates and servicing monitoring log file details?

          • Maintenance window recurrence pattern offset from a base day

            Allow the recurrence pattern for maintenance windows to be scheduled with an offset from a base day.

            Meaning, if we want a maintenance window on the Wednesday following the Second Tuesday of every month, we could configure a maintenance window for the Second Tuesday with a +1 offset.

            (This would be similar to the offset option added to ADRs in 1802.)

            • Change color scheme in the SCCM console

              When working with multiple customers and/or in migration scenarios (and also in lab- technical preview environments) it would be great to be able change the color scheme in the ConfigMgr console to clarify which environment the console belongs to.

                  • 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.

                      • Automatically Publish Full Content for Third Party Software Updates

                        With the release of CB 1806 we are now able to publish third party updates using custom catalogs. Ideally, third party patches would function exactly like first party patches from an administration and automation perspective. Currently there's two main areas where this is not the case.

                        Synchronization Schedule:
                        I could be wrong on this but I believe that subscribed catalogs sync automatically every 24-hours. While that's nice, it would be great to simply integrate with the existing sync schedule. Sync the catalogs, publish relevant metadata to WSUS, then sync the SUP(s).

                        Automatic Deployment Rules:
                        Currently, only update metadata is published…

                        • OSUninstall - Make ConfigMgr Aware of going back to previous builds

                          Please Make CM aware if an OSUninstall (Reverting to previous Build) has happened, so it can heal itself into a functional state. Currently if you perform an OSUninstall from say 1809 to 1709, after you've upgraded originally to 1809 using a CM Task Sequence, the CM Client is non-functional.
                          Client is in Provisioning Mode, Services are disabled, and once you fix that, it thinks it's int he middle of the Task Sequence and shows the Upgrade TS "Installing", so then you need to clear that out.

                          Please make OSUninstall & CM Play Nice together, so we can offer users the…

                            • "Software Changes are Required" pop-up to permanent or long lasting

                              Current behavior on 1810 or older is that the Taskbar pop-up "Software Changes are Required" only comes quickly and disappears. Users might not know about Software Center existance and not all go there themselves. If a Software Updates are Deployed as a required, with long deadline, 90% computers starts install them only when deadline kicks in. At this point, the "Snooze and remind me.." function is disabled, no use of that.

                              I would like to have an option, that the behavior of Software Changes Are Required - notification would be conrollable via Client Settings, to hide it, to display it…

                                Please add an option in the Application Model to auto uninstall the application after xx number of days. This could be linked to Software Metering. This would be extremely beneficial to manage applications for license reclamation as well as removing vulnerable applications from the environment.

                                  • SCCM Clients to respect SCCM policies first instead of AD GPO for sitecode, WSUS

                                    SCCM Client considers AD GPO first than SCCM policies as next for Sitecode, SUP Server name and this increasing dependancy on AD, lead to scenarion where client cant find right site, even if SCCM gives it correct, due to broken AD GPO or some settings, or in VPN user cases etc. Instead doesnt SCCM make this an option so either we can chose whether AD GPO or SCCM policies in settings in console... or change the order so SCCM policies are honoured first, than GPO later...This has been observed to give lot better compliancy in few clients of us, but…

                                    • Install Third Party Software Updates during TS Install Software Updates step

                                      Currently (v1806 or later) Third Party Software Updates are not being installed during the Install Software Updates step in a Task Sequence.

                                      Ideally third party software updates should be installed just like regular updates during the Task Sequence. A machine should be fully patched (secure and end-user ready) when it leaves the deployment bench.

                                      • Suppress Operating System in-place upgrade icon in Software Centre until pre-cached content is completed:

                                        Currently we are doing in-place upgrades via a task-sequence delivered by SCCM which appears as an available install in Software Centre.

                                        We would like to either hide or grey-out the 'Available' install operating system icon within Software Centre until the pre-cached files have been delivered to the device, to prevent the user from clicking on the install button before the files have pre-cached to the machine..

                                        We have disabled the toast notifications warning the users that a new application is available and do not want this upgrade to be delivered as a required installation as this would then be an…

                                        • Allow OS Upgrade and Custom Task Sequences to queue status messages during offline execution

                                          When OS Upgrade and Custom task sequences are running offline (such as following a reboot while on VPN) all task sequence manager status messages are discarded. While this is expected in WindowsPE, it would be beneficial for troubleshooting/reporting if OS Upgrade and Custom task sequences would queue status messages locally just like Executive Manager does with software installation status.
