  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 :)

    Thank you for this great idea. This is something we are looking improve for Configuration Manager 2010. The 2007 Technical Preview now uses fixed-width fonts in the following areas of the console:

    • Application scripts
    • Configuration item scripts
    • WMI-based collection membership queries
    • CMPivot queries
    • Scripts
    • Task Sequence PowerShell scripts and command lines

    Some additional fixes have also been made to further improve these scenarios:

    • Resizable windows for viewing/entering scripts
    • Using horizontal scrolling instead of word wrapping for scripts

    Please try it out and send us a frown if there’s anything we missed or any other areas you’d like to see fixed width font support.

  2. Allow for formatting in the 'Run Script' action.

    When running a script in the console on a client, the results are smashed together. No -foregroundcolor shows up etc. richer experience would be nice.
    Also, what kind of files are supported? Nothing I pick can be uploaded.

  3. CMPivot Refresh Query

    Add a refresh button for CMPivot queries so you can hit “Refresh” or “F5” to get fresh query results.

    If you run a query like “Service | where State != ‘Running’ | where StartMode == ‘Auto’” you get results. Say you waited 5 minutes and wanted to run the same query again to see if something changed. If you hit Run Query without changing the Entity, it just shows you your cached query results instead of doing a fresh run of the query. Please invent us a button to get fresh results. :)

  4. web portal for SCCM Dashboards for Windows 10, Office 365 and Software Updates, etc..

    Rather than all users needing a MECM Console and permissions to access the Graphical Dashboards for Windows 10 servicing, Office 365 and software Updates. Have a web link equivalent so that non-admin can either be sent an email with a link or have a sharepoint site with the dashboards available

  5. Convert all Typographic/Curly Quotation Marks to Standard Quotation Marks

    We have this problem come up occasionally where we copy text from something like a word doc or modern SharePoint site and paste it into the deployment settings for an App and it ends up causing issues.

    For example: “...” will break stuff, "..." works fine.

    This issue presents itself most notably in the AppEnforce.log as follows:
    Invalid data file “example.cmd” to execute using file association
    PrepareCommandline failed with 0x87d01106 for cmdline “example.cmd”
    ScriptHandler::EnforceApp failed (0x87d01106).
    AppProvider::EnforceApp - Failed to invoke EnforceApp on Application handler(0x87d01106).
    CommenceEnforcement failed with error 0x87d01106.
    Method CommenceEnforcement failed with error code 87D01106

  6. Auto-size Columns when looking a tabs in a deployment?

    While in MEMCM 'Console', when I go to troubleshoot a deployment on the 'Error' tab, I auto-size the columns for my view so I can see info. Can this be the default?

  7. Remove "Tenant Attach" as a mandatory step during the 2102 upgrade wizard.

    Could you please not make tenant attach as a mandatory step during the 2102 upgrade. I'm currently running a test environment with some virtual servers and I don't think that in order to upgrade I need to create a trial sub in Azure with Intune licenses.

  9. Allow URLs in the console to open in default web browser.

    Learn more URLs in the console such as the ones on the O365 client pilot and health or windows analytics servicing dashboard all open in IE11 instead of the default browser.

  10. Add cleanup of deprecated Application Catalog roles as a Management Insight

    Management Insights are great! As a consultant, I often train customers to check these on a regular basis and act on them to improve Site performance and to have a supported configuration.

    Application Catalog roles have been deprecated. It would be a nice-to-have addition to the Insights panel, in my opinion, to instruct on removing the application catalog website and application catalog web service roles, and to review the default and any custom client settings to ensure Default Application Catalog website point is set to (none).

    (taken from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/apps/plan-design/plan-for-and-configure-application-management#bkmk_remove-appcat)

  11. Deployment status shows deployment run time column

    It would be nice to see a column in the deployment status in Monitoring that showed the deployment run time for each device. It currently only shows the Deployment Time which is the same for every device in a deployment to a particular collection.

  13. Show the BMC IP address in the Summary tab for a device

    It would be great to have the BMC (iLO, iDRAC...) IP address in the General Information on the Summary tab. So when a server is offline, we have the info where to go to troubleshoot the machine.
    Windows Admin Center can show this information but only when the machine is up and running ( so not very useful most of the time).

  14. Clear Management insight that doesn't apply to our infra

    It would be useful to have the ability to clear/discard specific management insight when we decide that they don't apply to us or we are ok with keeping the setting(s) as is so we only see insights that concerns us.

  15. Add option to redistribute failed packages in Distribution Point Configuration status node

    So I've been wondering if Microsoft has looked into adding a redistribute failed packages option in the Distribution Point Configuration workspace. As of now Recast does this but I'd rather use Microsoft than a third party tool. The only option is for More Details. Of course there are scripts that could be ran to accomplish this and you can redistribute while in the administrative\distribution point workspace but its tedious. Adding a simple right click would help and save time in my opinion.

  16. training

    Due to the number of changes in the format and features as each new version of SCCM comes out Microsoft could offer training along with links. I wasn't sure what category to put this under.

  17. Please include option to run more than one script at a time using 'Run Scripts' option

    Hello, For now we are limited to run just one script at a time using the 'Run scripts' option in console. This way we need to wait till one completes before we run the other.

    Can you look at giving an option to let admins run more scripts a time ? Thanks.

  18. Allow saving a default views/settings for MS Edge Management dashboard

    Would like to set a default collection of my choosing for the dashboard, and customize the graphs to show actual numbers on the bar charts rather than having to hover over them.

  19. CMPIVOT should use the same KQL as Log Analytics

    CMPIVOT should follow the same Kusto syntax as Log Analytics. Even if it can't support the full scope of capabilities, those which are an analog to Log Analytics KQL should use the exact same syntax and behavior.

  20. Import user device affinity should overwrite existing

    Hello,

    When I import my user device affinity CSV after I handout a batch of notebooks I found the import mostly errors.

    Users often become primary users by affinity type usage agent defined before I import the information. If this is already set than my import for those devices fails while all others become set as affinity type administrator defined.

    Currently to resolve these import errors I need to search for the device, right click edit primary user, remove usage defined user, press okay to save, right click to edit primary user again, add user again, okay to save for…
