  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • ConfigurationManager PowerShell module should register itself as an Env Variable

        Today, when you install the CM Console, the PowerShell module will be placed under the %CMInstallDirectory%\AdminConsole\Bin\ConfigurationManager.psd1

        This makes sense given where the user is choosing to install the console, and that's fine. But placing it here off the beaten path means that it is not importable using PowerShell's module autodiscovery features. For instance, if a module is found in any of the standard user or system paths (or registered under the $ENV:PsModulePath) the user can easily import the module without having to specify the full path, a big user quality of life win. This is the way that SQL Server…

        • 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.)

          • Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

            Issue: Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

            Currently, although a method exists to extend tables that can be imported into the Data Warehouse, we learnt recently that this is not supported. We feel this represents a gap with the following impacts:
            - Not all tables from the SCCM database are currently synced into the DW. Even a common AI table like Install_Software_Data must be synced via this custom process. This is a table used heavily in AI based software title reporting and therefore a common addition to the DW.
            - Custom inventory tables – inventory extension/customization is a…

            • Change the way the new tag is used in software center

              There is the great functionality of tagging "new" software in the software center and showing this software right at the top of all apps. Today this tag is dependent on the date the deployment has been created and or set to be available for 7 days as a global setting. It would be great to show this tag from a users perspective. This would also align to the often used concept of having a collection with the software deployed and the members get added on demand. So if a customer is ordering a software it is shown on his client…

              • More control of the Software Center

                Give us the possibility to
                a) do a fine configuration centrally of the SW Center
                e.g. sorting order, list view, filters, etc.
                b) keep users settings of the SW Center
                e.g. list view, sorting, tabs
                c) provide more detail status
                e.g. why "Waiting to install" ?

                  • Improve the deployment summarization timing when viewing deployments under monitoring.

                    Improve the deployment summarization timing when viewing deployments under monitoring.

                    Many times, when viewing a deployment, the summarized data (pie chart and total counts) lags behind. The details of each status of the deployment is accurate and up to date, but the summarization is not real time.

                    There are two similar suggestions already on UV:
                    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/20167021-admin-console-should-show-update-synchronization-a

                    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/32885422-make-status-summarization-and-state-messaging-fast

                    My recommendation is to trigger a summarization as soon as you view the deployment, to eliminate one step of the process. If you are opening the deployment, you will always want the latest data.

                      We still see prompts for closing running office applications and while Software Center displays a reboot required, the update doesn't seem to get installed unless manually triggered through the in-app notification.

                      • Run Software Update Evaluation After Updates Have Installed

                        The recent Servicing Stack Update released out of band in May was made a requirement for the June cumulative updates but itself did not require a reboot. This created a conundrum for organizations patching devices with maintenance windows. Because of the lack of reboot on the servicing stack update there was no option to run a full evaluation that would detect that the cumulative update was now applicable and install it within the same maintenance window.

                        A few ways to solve that problem but the one that strikes me as straight forward is to modify, extend, or duplicate the "if…

                        • Make the request text box a required field for applications that require approval in Software Center

                          For applications that require an approval in Software Center, make the text box on the request screen a required field, preventing the user from submitting the request until a reason is given. Also maybe make the text box title "Reason for request" - or better yet make the title customizable per application. As it is now, we get most requests with a "blank" text box requiring us to circle back with the user to get this information prior to approving the application.

                              It would help all admins if we can set the value in the policy.
                              QuarantinePurgeItemsAfterDelay can be set in the policy. So let's have ScanPurgeItemsAfterDelay configurable in order to achieve full control on antimalware history management.

                                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.

                                  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

                                  • New Software Center: Hide already installed packages (not only applications)

                                    In the 1802 release, the option to hide already installed software was added but only for applications, not packages.
                                    It'd be a good idea to hide already installed packages, in order to keep the software center easier to the end user understand what still need to be installed.
                                    Thanks in advance.

                                    • Fix problem with Task Sequences not showing Software Center with Multiple Users logged in

                                      When you have multiple users logged in on a Machine. Task Sequences only show for the user that first logged in.

                                      When calling Task Sequences from PowerShell, the same behaviour is observable, only the first user can call the TSs.

                                      • 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

                                        • 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.
