  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. CMPivot Refresh Query

    Add a refresh button for CMPivot queries so you can hit ā€œRefreshā€ or ā€œF5ā€ to get fresh query results.

    If you run a query like ā€œService | where State != ā€˜Runningā€™ | where StartMode == ā€˜Autoā€™ā€ 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. :)

  3. 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".

  4. Allow console user to select SMS provider

    Allow console users to be able to select the SMS provider they want to connect to when multiple providers are setup. Current setup doesn't work well for global implementations as it randomly selects a provider. We have US, Europe, India and Australia users and would like faster console access for all.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Community Hub - Support Server Operation Systems

    Community is (hopefully?) a great tool, but locking it down to only being available in Windows 10 operating systems locks out a ton of admins from its features. Many organizations require the use of Jump Servers for running the Admin Console and block RPC outside of specific routes/endpoints, so they're left out of this great resource.

  8. Run CMPivot queries against site status/state messages

    CMPivot queries are easy to learn and very powerful. It would be very useful to run CMPivot (ie Kusto) queries against site status/state messages.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. In deployments allow us to see the primary user as a column

    Allow us to see primary user of a device for a deployment. When testing features or looking into issues this would be a great help as we wouldn't have to get the computer name, copy to devices and find the primary users name if its populated.

  12. Dropdown for CMpivot collection does not exist in the console version like the standalone version.

    Dropdown for CMpivot collection does not exist in the SCCM console version like the standalone version. Could that be an option like the standalone version?

  13. 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.

  14. Change approval request behavior and allow them to be deleted

    Approval requests seem to act perpetual required installs (or required uninstalls for denials), at least when using the right click "install application" through the console. It would be less problematic to just have it auto-install once and that's it. Also, it would be great of we could just delete requests instead of only being able to deny or approve.

  15. 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.

  16. Option to change Green: Good; Red: Bad colour scheme for very common RG colour blindness

    There needs to be an option to change the status colour scheme because Green: Good, Red: Bad can be a problem if you're Red-Green colour blind, which is a common form of colour blindness affecting 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women.

  17. Multiple computer selection for "Clear Required PXE" option

    Currently you can right click on a single device, or an entire device collection, to run the "Clear Required PXE deployments" option - what would be great is if we could select multiple devices within a collection and have the option available. (It's currently disabled if more than one item is selected)

  18. Build collection based on installed software from asset intelligence

    While reviewing software within the enterprise, inside of Asset Intelligence \ Inventoried Software, it would be very helpful to be able to either a) right click on an application title to view which machines have the application installed, or b) right click the title to create a device collection for those machines that have the app installed.

  19. Combine Resource Explorer and Properties

    It would be very helpful if the Properties window of a device included all of the information in the Resource Explorer.

    Motivation:
    1. I almost never open the Properties view because it rarely contains the information I'm looking for. The Resource Explorer, on the other hand, has almost everything.
    2. Having the Resource Explorer buried under a sub-menu makes it difficult to train and convince technicians to use it in their day-to-day workflow to find information and solve problems.
    3. Since Resource Explorer is far more useful than Properties, it should be the easier of the two things to getā€¦

  20. Make it easy in the console to make collections from the tabs in Monitoring/Deployments

    You are reviewing a deployment, you open the error tab.
    Make it easy to add the object listed into a collection so you can work on the issue as a whole, instead of jumping around with single machines.
