  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. "View Status" under the deployments tab for Software Updates (Groups)/Applications

    Would like to have "View Status" listed as a right click option in the deployments tab under Software Updates (Groups) and Applications.

  4. 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.

  5. Community hub: Add rating option and list view

    The Community Hub is really cool but it's difficult to keep the overview. A list view with filter option and the possibility to rate solutions would be great.

  6. When the Bell comes up to install a new Extension.

    When the Bell comes up to install a new Extension we should have a description of what the option is used for. Or a link with the information. Not all components are useful to all admins or users.

  8. 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. :)

  9. Ability to connect to Configmgr community without console

    Our Configmgr system is run on a network that does not connect to the Internet. I cannot connectot Community Hub from this system. If I try to connect via web browser on a system connected to the Internet it says I can't and that must use the condole.

    I'd like to emphatically suggest you provide a way to connect to and download from the community hub via web browser in addition to the configure console.

  12. Tool tip on device active status icon

    Customers ask me all the time the icon really means. Especially when they confirm a device is powered on and responds to a remote ping. An simple explanation of the icon would be really helpful.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  19. 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).

  20. 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.
