  1. Use a fixed-width font (like consolas) for better script readability in ConfigMgr in all text-boxes where you type or paste scripts

    There are several areas in the Configuration Manager Console with text fields for entering or pasting scripts. The Scripts feature, CI Detection and Remediation, Application Detection, etc. The font used in these areas is not script friendly. Tabs and spaces are hard to discern and the scripts look downright messy. Using Consolas or another monospaced font would preserve the nice looking formatting you've just copied out of somewhere like VS Code, and would make the script easier to read when you go to look at it later in the ConfigMgr Console. Please change it :)

  2. Management Insights - Filter Group Name

    Adding the ability to filter the management insights dashboard by group names would allow customers that - for example - can't use cloud services for security reasons to be able to get a full insight into their environment without having to "ignore" results from groups that aren't relevant to them.

    For example, an environment that is unable to use cloud services currently will never have a management insights index of 100%, despite all of their relevant rules being "Completed".

  3. Warn admins prior to secret key or certificate expiry

    If you forget to renew your CMG "secret key" before the expiry date, things like distributing content to cloud enabled CMG will fail.

    This uservoice is to prompt admins via a banner when the secret key or any self-signed certificates are due to expire.

  4. VPN boundary type enhancements

    The new VPN boundary type in TP2005 is great!

    I have some suggestions to make it even more useful :)


    1. An option (specific to the VPN boundary) such that any clients associated with it due to being detected as VPN connected will ignore all other boundaries. In other words, with the option enabled the VPN boundary supersedes all other boundaries.
      >> This would fix the hypothetical (ha!) situation where an internal network IP boundary exists for 192.168.1.0/24 and conflicts with VPN-connected clients originating from common 192.168.1.0/24 home user networks.


    2. <maybe?> Settings to configure which VPNs & vendors are included inā€¦

  5. 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.

  6. Allow console extensions to dynamically add actions based on a function call

    Add a way for ConfigMgr console extensions to dynamically define actions that show up in the context menu. Currently extensions need to define all of their actions ahead of time via an XML file. It would be nice if this XML file included support for requesting a list of actions to display from an assembly. Similar to the ActionStateAssembly definition that's used to determine if an action should be allowed, this new method would return a list of actions with the associated function pointers. Suggested method footprint / XML is attached.

  7. SMS Provider and admin console should allow for integration with third party MFA providers

    Integrate Admin Console with third party MFA.

    PCI requires MFA for any tool that manages PCI devices. Need integration with third party MFA profiders.

  8. Allow Wake Up Client Notification if Client = No

    Currently, if the Client = No in SCCM, the Client Notification action menu item is grayed out. This makes sense - why would you want to notify a client to do something if the client isn't installed. However, one of the menu items under Client Notifications is "Wake Up", which doesn't require the computer to be powered on.

    But with COVID-19, I have a lot of computers that are in the office that have been off for > 30 days, so the SCCM console shows Client = No. It would be nice to be able to Wake Up computers ifā€¦

  9. Pre-Cache Monitoring in Console

    When using Pre-Cache content in a Task Sequence, there's no easy way to see pre-cache download progress per client in the console.

    Status could be included in the Monitoring / Deployment / In Progress, so that we can see which client has completed pre-cache download.

  10. Make Windows resizable

    There are many properties dialogs in SCCM that are not resizable. Please allow all windows to be resizable. For example, the Active Directory Discovery options its difficult to see the entire distinguished name.

  11. Add "new" icon in collections

    Every time a "new" object is listed inside a collection, maybe a "star" (like the attached image) could tell "there are new objects". Same Devices and Users collections. And also in the main tree!

  12. Add/remove a device from a collection using MEMAC portal

    When you have implemented Tenant Attach with TP2005, you can see the collections a device is member of from Microsoft Endpoint Manager Admin Console portal. This is a great feature!

    One of most common helpdesk tasks is the need to add/remove a device from a collection. You should be able to add a device as a direct member to a selected collection from MEMAC portal. And you should be able to remote the device from any collections the device is a direct member.

  13. Change color scheme in the console (including dark mode)

    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.

  14. Represent Microsoft Connected Cache Server as Delivery Optimization

    If clients utilize the Microsoft Connected Cache server (formally DOINC), have the client data sources reflect Delivery Optimization as the sources.

  15. Show the status of task sequences as they execute, more details than "Task received"

    Show the status of task sequences as they execute, more details than "Task received", most other tools like Symantec Management Console and Altiris do a better job of describing what is happening from consoles perspective, deep-diving into several logs just to troubleshoot something basic is a pain in the butt.

  17. Deploy Software Wizard - Content destination section bypass checkbox or allow to click Next without waiting for everything to load.

    Our environment has 1,000+ Distribution Points currently and I imagine a lot of other Enterprises would enjoy not having to sit through long wait times for all their Distribution Points to load into the Wizard's view when all they want to do is Deploy Software without specifying additional Content Destinations because it is already distributed everywhere it is needed.

  18. Shrink Unused Space in Wizard Dialog

    Shrink the size of the banner at the top of wizard dialogs to better work for users with lower resolutions, or using RDP from a computer with scaled windows UI. Buttons are hidden behind the task bar if using 150% scaling on a computer with a 1920x1080 resolution that is using RDP to access the console.
