  1. 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?

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Search Feature for Membership Tab in Collection Properties

              We have a large number of clients and many Collections are setup to use Direct Membership rules. When in the Collection Properties, Memberships tab, when there are a lot of Direct Membership rules it can be difficult to find a specific entry if a change needs to be made. It would be nice if there was a Search feature in this window to make it easier to find a specific rule for cases where a rule may need to be removed.

              • Add an address bar to the "Browse Registry" window when creating registry based detection methods

                Add an address bar like regedit has on Windows 10 to the registry browser when creating detection methods for applications. Currently you have to drill down to the registry location that you need every time you open the registry browser.

                Also, if the address bar could have a dropdown of "favorites" or "most used" locations, that would save a lot of time when creating applications.

                • CMPivot Web Portal

                  We have a lot of people who would love to run queries against our systems (Desktop Support admins for example) that we do not give direct console access to. It would be super helpful to have a web-based interface for CMPivot to allow people an easy method to execute queries.

                  In addition, a query builder like that of Azure Log Analytics would be helpful as well so we don't have to walk them thru how to write all there queries.

                    • Add an option to the search feature to include sub-folders.

                      The current search feature within the Admin Console only searches through the currently selected folder. Adding an option to allow sub-folders to be included in the search would make finding objects much more efficient.

                      • primary user

                        The list in the Admin-UI, where you can select/assign the primary user for a device, is based on hardware inventory.
                        Please Include the "currently logged on user" information (based on BGB channel) in this same list.

                        • Add additional information on CMG Monitoring

                          The CMG dashboard needs to be developed further to see which clients are using it and what content they have downloaded. In addition, we should be able to see how much we are being charged for this to enable us make a decision on whether we add additional content or prevent further download of content already in the CMG

                          Dashboard is a screenshot, not enough and shouldn't be considered 'Monitoring'. I know this is a new concept but i believe as this becomes more widely used, there will be a greater demand for this

                            • Increase block size for pulse mode (distribution point rate limit)

                              Using pulse mode rate limit on a distribution point can enable a 2Mbps bandwidth cap. This is useful and it would be great if the block size limit of 256KB be increased to support higher thresholds.

                              • Would like for a Configuration Manager Console package to be created automatically on site upgrade

                                Would like for a Configuration Manager Console package to be created automatically on site upgrade as is done with the Configuration Manager Client package. The use case is for deploying the admin console to new operators. Instead of having to manually create an admin console package and update it after each site upgrade, SCCM could automatically create and update this package.

                                    • Admins should be able to force systems to checkin without being admins on the systems

                                      I am a full administrator on the console, but we are connected to multiple domains but my account is not an admin in all of the domains. As a program/software updates installs under the user context that is defined for each of the domains, I should be able to push a system check in to have a computer install a client, run a hardware check in, etc., under my admin account in the console without logging in with an administrator account in each domain.

                                      • Copy Column Headings When Using Ctrl + C

                                        Its a fairly basic requirement for Collections and Queries, and as SCCM's data comes from SQL which has a console that allows you to copy and paste query results INCLUDING the column headings, it has to be a simple task surely?

                                        Whether it is simple or not, copying and pasting data from Collections and particularly Queries is a very frequent task for most admins, and is huge time saver compared to creating Reports.

                                        So, *please* can you add this in?

                                        • Add separate security role permission for CMPivot

                                          Console users must have "Run Scripts" security role permission to use CMPivot. Can you add a separate security role permission for CMPivot so we can make administrative users with CMPivot permission but not "Run Scripts?"
