  1. Use Control-C to copy content

    In ConfigMgr Console you can in some places use Ctrl-C to copy result to clipboard. Example. Open a collection, select all and use Ctrl-C. Then paste in excel or notepad.

    You cannot however use Ctrl-C in Asset Details for a Deployment Status details (\Monitoring\Overview\Deployments\<pick on of your deployments>).

      • Monitoring/Query - export data

        During the cutting and pasting in the query section, also allow the capture of the label column. This would have to be a bit 'faster to export the data. The best solution would be to have the ability to export via a dedicated button in various formats, csv, excel, pdf.

        • SCCM - Better Exchange Connect configuration with Exchange Online

          A simple Exchange Connector installation for Exchange Online is missing.
          It should be intuitive and easy like the configuration with the Exchange Server On-premise.

          • Delete multiple objects from console

            It would be very great and intuitive to be able to delete multiple apps \ deployment types\ deployments \ packages \ driver packages and even folders from Console without creating custom PowerShell scripts.
            Today when selecting multiple objects the delete option becomes greyed out.

            • Client Settings - Computer Restart - Allow longer than 1440 minutes, show friendly time

              Currently, the maximum an administrator can give users to reboot their systems is 1440 minutes (24 hours). Please let us specify up to 7 days. The goal of the delay is to allow a reasonable amount of time for an end user to save their work and reboot without losing anything. The 24 hour limit means that if a user is gone for a day, there is a strong chance they could lose their work. Allowing up to 7 days seems like a better compromise between end user control and respecting admin intent/organizational need.

              • Language settings in Configuration Manager Admin Console.

                I want to be able to change language in the Configuration Manager admin console. Right now the console uses the same language as my system language (which is swedish). There should be language packs for the admin console.

                • Tabs and windows

                  The console is very modal. Trying to compare two things side by side is impossible. What we need is tabs and woodies. Let me right click a node or an object and bring it up in a new window or tab so i don't have to keep performing the same searches over and over again.

                    • Create a node in the console with favorite action

                      It's possible to create a new node in the console with favorite actions.

                      Example:
                      Favorite\Frequent Action 1 (Device collection)
                      Favorite\Frequent Action 2 (Monitoring content)
                      Favorite\Frequent Action 3 (Application Deployment)

                      If you want to add any action in the console to favorite Node, just right click on the action and select add to favorite actions...

                        Provide a simpler way to target a Status Message Query at a Device by allowing you to Right-Click and View its latest Status Messages, rather than having to manually run through the Status Message Wizard.

                          • Status Messages in the SCCM Console

                            Status messages are amazingly helpful in the SCCM console, but difficult to get to. For instance, whoever wrote the status messages for Task Sequence deployments did an amazing job, yet I cannot access these without making a custom query! This is an amazing troubleshooting tool that is hidden from the average user.

                            I'd like to get access to status messages from the object that makes the status message. For instance, if I right click on a task sequence deployment, I want to be able to view all status messages associated with that object. If I right click on a distribution…

                            • Drag and Drop in console

                              Why can't we simply drag and drop machines/users into collections instead of having to go through wizard?. It makes it much harder for Helpdesk to understand how to use the console (hence why most people use AD security groups as targets). Why not select/Multi-select items and drag into relevant collection

                                  This is really a pet peeve but bear with me. When I want to search Devices within Assets and Compliance section of the Admin console, a message appears that says "Configuration manager returned a large number of results. You can narrow your results by using search. Or, click here to view a maximum of 100000 results." The functionality of this is great, however the placement of it is EXACTLY where the search box was right before it appeared. More times than not, I'll try to click in the search box and end up clicking on this message instead and the…

                                    Allow a default to be created for each and Every object type in the admin console.

                                    Applications, Packages, etc.. Allow Every possible setting to be pre-configured with the default choices you want by default. Multiple "templates" creatable for the same object type... Default choice would be based upon RBA. or a global choice if present.

                                    • Improve console communication and security to site server

                                      To use the console you need to open up the RPC dynamic port range as the SMS provider is using WMI.

                                      Isn't it time to move to a more secure communication method which allows the reduction in open ports to the site server?

                                      • Incorporate VAMT into console

                                        Being able to right click a device and see and manage key types and activations would be very helpful when rolling out SCCM and KMS into a large existing environment full of OEM editions.
