    • office 365

      Show the Office build number as one of the column options in a Device Collection.

      Currently you can view the OS version, it'd be of great help to be able to see the Office version at a glance.

      • vSMS_Boundary

        Created(or make this view) a supported version of vSMS_Boundary that can be used with reporting. This will allow admin to local computers not within boundaries and allow for boundary related reporting

        • Include MSFT Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards with Configmgr

          Microsoft Premier Field Engineering has created custom Configmgr dashboards. These are available for purchase though Premier Support Contract. I'd like to suggest these be included in the Configmgr distribution.
          -------------------------------------------------------------
          Overview
          The CMAD solution (Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards) delivers a data-driven reporting overview of the System Center Configuration Manager environment.
          This solution consists of a rich set of dashboards designed to deliver real-time reporting of ongoing activity in your Configuration Manager environment.
          Native Configuration Manager Reports are not replaced with this solution, the CMAD solution amplifies the data they show by providing additional data insights.
          The dashboards in this solution…

          • Make Power BI Reporting Server licensing part of SCCM licensing

            Power BI is great to create dynamic reports and dashboards with SCCM data, but the licensing to publish those reports and make them available to your whole department or organization are a nightmare.

            This needs to be much easier, so why not just include it in the SCCM licensing, so we can all move away from SSRS and move to Power BI?

            • Maintenance Window Calendar Overview

              Just curious if this could be possible to be implemented using either reporting service or in console but if you could deploy a calendar overview of Maintenance Windows similar to a Gantt chart in which we could see overlapping bars of Maintenance Windows on a timescale in a calendar view along with applicable collections as it's header would be great in terms of planning or discussing changes in a change approval board and/or planning patch management downtime.
              The best way would be using reports as that link can be shared with PMO/Decision makers for their review.
              Thanks

              • Color theme

                To save companies time when building reports from other environments or being imported, it would be nice to have a CSS theme like template which can be applied to the look and feel of the report.

                So this would mean all objects, like pie or bar charts, fonts and frames, tables, text boxes can be changed as soon as you plant a CSS theme configuration setting on it.

                • Inbuilt report to Determine the size of userprofiles for a Specific collection

                  We are currently planning on implementing OneDrive in our organization and would like to actually get an estimation of size of a User Profile for our site based collections.

                  I found couple of websites that actually provided me the idea of how to implement it, but it would be better for organizations if SCCM Can actually provide an Inbuilt report to retrieve the Size of User profile for a specific collection.

                    • SCCM Reports: Add capability to search for compliance by IAVM

                      Request SCCM enhancement to search for compliance by IAVM# (IAVA, IAVB) for either Enterprise-level or individual site under SCCM reports. A single IAVM may have several KB #'s (ex: MS patches) or there are very limited search capabilities for most 3rd party applications. Capability to capability to search SCCM reports by IAVM# will reduce amount of time in searching/compiling compliance metrics and will allow for quicker reporting of overall compliance.

                      • export list of computers from devices

                        I would like to be able to go to Devices or open a collection of devices, or even from the queries section. Add whatever information I'm looking for in the "Columns to Fit" area then be able to export exactly what I have on my screen into Excel. It would make reporting so much more simple. For those small requests that managers give you.

                        • Windows 10 data usage reporting in SCCM database

                          Hello,

                          It would be really helpful to have Windows 10 data usage reporting added to SCCM database. With Windows 10 data usage details available as a GUI on OS itself, managements across IT would be keen have the same presented as a SCCM dashboard report. I see third party apps in Windows 10 store ;like 'Data Usage' giving very nice reports of the same. Really looking forward to have it in SCCM database.

                          • Provide Reporting Data for OneDrive Known Folder Move Calculation

                            In 1902 TP you are able to apply a Known Folder Move policy to sync the sccm client agent with OneDrive. Specifically the Desktop, Pictures and Documents folders. it would be great if we had a report that provided us with the Individual size of each folder and the cumulative size of all three. This would allow administrators to assess and plan their upload strategies accordingly.

                            • Add a report about # of current online clients

                              ConfigMgr 1810 has a fabulous chart about # of current online clients per on-prem MP/internet MP/CMG within the last 30 days (Monitoring -> Cloud Management --> Online clients (last 30 days)).

                              This chart is super useful to figure out how many computers are online /day/time.

                              There should be a report with the same info so you could:
                              - export the chart to different formats
                              - schedule the report to run every 30 days to get longer trends about client usage

                                  It would be so handy to have a "View Grid" option in the Report Builder design view with a "Snap to grid" feature. This will make designing the reports so much easier to align objects and text boxes etc.

                                  • FIX: Distribution Point Usage Summary Report is Empty

                                    This report has no data:

                                    Reason is the SMS_Distribution_Point_Monitoring component selects the last alphabetically stored and '*' separated MP name from registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints. This happens to be a management point in our untrusted DMZ forest and our production forest distribution points can not access this DMZ forest management point on port 443 due to firewall rules.

                                    When we rearrange the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints value so it will reference a production forest management point as the last '*' separated entry, the distribution point usage summary…

                                      When I look at the reporting, I'm of course especially interested in the errors.
                                      If there appears to be a structural problem, then a solution is developed and implemented.
                                      However - unless it's a change in the revision of an application - there is no clear way to distinguish between errors from before and after the change.

                                      • Does SCCM have capability to report which software has been installed by the users themselves using Software Center

                                        I find this hard to believe that SCCM doesn’t have capability to report which software has been installed by the users themselves using Software Center

                                        Trying to find out this report for specific PC, not for specific application

                                        • Track and make available through console (preferably) or SSRS reporting client connection to CMG and CDP history

                                          We want SCCM to track, on a per individual device basis, which devices connected to CMG and/or CDP and when. We need this data for both reporting on effectiveness/utilization of CMG/CDP and also to help identify which systems are connecting versus which ones we expect to be connecting.

                                          Currently, data is tracked only in quantities, for example, I can see how many systems connected over CMG in the past 30 days and how much data was used, but I cannot see which devices were the ones that connected.

                                          Thank you.
