  1. Add Column for Email just like 'Primary User'.

    Add Column for Email just like 'Primary User'. This will allow rapid targeted communication to the Primary Users in a collection.

  2. 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.

  3. Enable url-like shortcuts to nodes in the console (ie. deployment saved searches)

    I check up on deployments every few hours, would love to be able to create a shortcut on my desktop to "Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe \Monitoring\Searches\Search99"

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. Show/Use device IP-address from NotificationAgent update in Console

    In VPN scenarios the DNS resolution is missing or delayed very often. To troubleshoot a device the current device IP-address is important.
    You can force a DDR /heartbeat from the console, but this take a while until the information is arrived and actually it is unnecessary because the IP-address Information is already existing in the SCCM database from the NotificationAgent update cycle.
    (SELECT v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.ResourceID, v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.IPAddress0, vSMS_R_SYSTEM.Netbios_Name0
    FROM v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION
    inner join vSMS_R_SYSTEM on v_GS_NETWORK_ADAPTER_CONFIGURATION.ResourceID = vSMS_R_SYSTEM.ItemKey
    where vSMS_R_SYSTEM.Netbios_Name0 = 'DEVICENAME')

    It would be nice to get the Information directly in the console. And it would be nice as well, when theā€¦

  7. Community Hub: RBAC or opt-out

    With 1902 we introduced the Community Hub to the current branch release. Even it's a great feature, some users shouldn't be able to see it. It would be nice if we could use RBAC or a site setting do hide it from consoles.

  8. Make "Devices with Application" clickable

    Similar to the great and time-saving work in 1906 where we have a clickable link to take us to the list of machines that need a specific Software Update, can you please do something similar for Devices with Application when we click an app?

    A use case for this is where we have one remaining machine showing an older/superseded version of an app, no remaining deployments, and we just want to click through to see which machine hasn't updated. It might be an offline machine, or one that has some other issue. Either way, it would be a timesaver. Seeā€¦

  9. Adding XMLStorage path to the Admin console commandline

    We use the admin UI builder to edit the console view but it's a machine-wide configuration.

    I would like to be able to specify the XML storage path as part of the commandline so that you can specify different console layouts for different user roles.

  10. There is a possibility that SCCM does in Azure Backup.

    With more integrated Azure services within SCCM, you could have a Azure Backup integration, creating your blob, which you can do a local copy (cache) and then send to Azure Backup, the status you can follow in the console of the SCCM and have the option to generate alert via e-mail.
    Of course in addition to the option of Backup is very important to have the option of Restore.

  11. Geo Location - Boundary Groups and Site Systems

    Add a geo location attribute (like the one for Sites) to BGs and Site Systems so that data can be used natively in tools like Power BI to display where Site Systems/client populations are located in a geo map.

  12. Add new Device tab with custom properties (Variables)

    When selecting one or multiple devices in the console, it would be very helpful to have an additional tab at the bottom (next to "Summary", "Client Settings", "Collections", etc.) with "Custom Properties" where console users can select from predefined, custom properties such as "Language", "Company", "OS", Device Type", "Deployment Ring" or any other properties that are relevant for a company.
    These properties should then be available as variables during OSD and during normal task sequences.
    Admins should be able to predefine and customize the available properties depending on the needs of the company. There should be a way to createā€¦

  13. Add computer model as a column

    Can you add ā€œcomputer modelā€ as a column option for devices. When looking at devices, that seems to be the only field missing when we are trying to sort by things such as OS, computer name, etc. Can you also add a way for us to rename or mask these models. For example, when we look at Lenovo models we get what looks like a serial number instead of T480s. Having the ability to update that model number to an actual name will help. Thanks.

  14. Saved Console Sessions

    It would be convenient if I was able to reboot my workstation without having to setup my console views/collection nodes each time.

  15. Re-Run Notification

    It would be great if we can re-run a deployment notification for the users.

    Example:
    We have deployed the windows 10 build upgrade task sequence but with a deadline 2 months in the future. It would be great if we can set an additional notification for the upgrade because the most of our users forgot to start the deployment manually. It would be great to send them an additional notification as example at the evening around 4:30pm or manually during the day.

  16. Every grid in the console needs to have a 'created by' column

    A column in every single pane needs to be added for 'Created by'. Some of us have 50+ admins across several orgs using the same MP and infrastructure. Trying to figure out who created a Task Sequence or OS image, for instance, is a nightmare. Trying to enforce an object naming convention is a first step, but you can't make people do it - I can however, see your username and yell at you.

  17. Global Search Bar

    Create a Search Bar that activates across all console panes to provide a quick search and drill through capability across all object types. For example, from the Assets and Compliance pane - search for "automatic client upgrade" and have it display a drill through link directly launch the Hierarchy Settings dialog box to display the pane where the setting resides.

  18. Console - Add Application Name to Application Properties in Summary Tab

    Add the Application Name to the Summary Tab under Application Properties so you can easily copy & paste the name.

    If you could actually do this in all areas of the Console, anything you have open, having the Name of the object in the Summary Properties so you can copy & paste out is nifty.

    NOTE: ConfigMgr Dev Team at MMSMOA Cabin Session did this for Packages, so hopefully that hits an up coming release, but I'd like to see this in all areas:
    Collections: DONE
    Task Sequences: DONE
    Global Conditions: Not Done

  19. Add column to display Computer Description in Devices list

    For us admins systems it is information we miss, because we have server numbers but do not know what application is running behind. When we have more than 500 servers it is not easy to memorize all the roles.

  20. View Deployments when a collection is selected under the Users or Devices node

    Would love to see the ability to view the "Deployments" tab for a collection when it is displayed/selected in the Devices node in the left pane of the Assets and Compliance tab in the Wunderbar (e.g. when it is selected to view membership).

    Right now, the only way to view deployments to a collection is to drill down to that collection under "Device Collections" and select it.
