  1. Improve PC lifecycle management feature

    ConfigMgr should have better PC lifecycle management.

    E.g. following features:
    - Recognize potential devices that are removed from the network e.g. devices that are removed/disabled from AD, not active within ConfigMgr
    - When removing a device from ConfigMgr, the device should be removed also from AD/Intune/CMDB. There should be a way to provide a custom command to remove the device from 3rd party CMDB
    - Create a workflow with multiple conditions and steps with optional approval

        • I would like to see more Compliance assisting tools like Nithins SCCM Client Tool incorporated into SCCM.

          Nithins tool allows you to turn on server services, fix wmi, run actions and fix issues, uninstall/reinstall client, ping devices, rerun advertisments, on several devices at once. Combines all of the tools you need for Compliance. Would be nice to not have to download other tolls for this.

            • Add missing properties to Win32_QuickFixEngineering

              The WMI Class ROOT\cimv2:Win32_QuickFixEngineering has an Property InstallDate but I do not get any values returned.

              Having the Installed Date available will allow us to sort and see the latest installed patches remotely. This is valuable when assessing problems caused by the latest installed patches.

              • Add OS Information to General Information Area

                I think it would be nice if the General Information Area under the each asset could show the OS Version.

                See photo for details.

                • Add Software Metering information to Data warehouse

                  Ability to add Software Metering Data to the Data warehouse. This will allow potentially up to three years of trends of application usage that would help greatly with re-ups of applications.

                    • Capture Cisco CDP and LLDP packets in SCCM reporting for asset tracking

                      CDP and LLDP packets are generated by network switches and sent to clients to identify which port they are connected to. If the computer is on an enterprise wifi access point, it will capture which access point it is connected to. This data should be captured by SCCM so inventory reports can be run to get a PC's physical location in the network.

                      This data can be captured with Wireshark, but if SCCM could capture these packets it would aid greatly in PC location and network troubleshooting since it tells you which switch and port number the computer is on.

                      • Create Boundaries based on OU membership.

                        We are have lots of groups that are coming into the company using VPN. As an example we can’t properly manage locations with many machines all coming into the corporate network via a common VPN and the IP addresses change every time and the network speed is a challenge. We end up flooding their pipe into the VPN so if we could use OU membership as a boundary we could managed the deployments.

                        • More Device Top Level Segragation Options

                          It would be great to have more top level device segregation options. Currently we create lower level collections based on names for various departments, all other segregations/collection memberships generally require hardware inventories to have been performed before they can be processed. If these are servers or critical systems it may be too late and they are added to inappropriate collection before they are added to the collections to exclude them. It would be good to be able to separate out devices at top level collections by boundary, subnet or IP range. In order for complete segregation, we are looking into…

                          • Uninstall ContentID missing from console

                            In version 1802 and below the uninstall Content ID is not visible in the console. Only the Install Content ID is visible next to the DeploymentType. That makes i hard to troubleshoot. Would be nice if you could add another column for the Uninstall Content ID next to the Install Content ID.
                            I wrote a littel script to extract the ID from the SDMPackageXML as a workaround. See attached.

                            • Update asset management to include everything that is needed for license discussions (at least with Microsoft)

                              MAP Toolkit is a good tool but why should we have to use it when Asset Management is available in Configuration Manager? I'd expect to see edition of SQL Server, BIOS info on Windows licensing, virtualization rights, etc. in ConfigMgr. Reports are needed that would show number of processors/cores in front of products that are licensed based on number of processors/cores.

                                When techs. add a machine to a collection for deployment, it takes a while for the machine to show up. The only way to speed up this process is to update the "All Systems" membership and the applicable membership of where the machine is. Can there be a way to make this process more responsive?

                                  When an optional AD attribute has been selected for inclusion in AD discovery, if that attribute has a value at time of discovery, it is included in the discovery and reflected as part of the information for the user/computer/group object in CM. If that AD attribute is later cleared (changed to <not set> / NULL value in AD), discovery identifies that the attribute is a NULL value and purposely skips it from the discovery. As such, the user/computer/group object in AD falls out of sync with the AD attributes and continues to report the value even though it has been…

                                  • Add hardware inventory information to Devices view as selectable column

                                    Make information from hardware inventory a selectable column in the Devices overview list.
                                    IS-Situation:
                                    The selectable column list is limited and does not include some very useful information.
                                    SHOULD-Situation:
                                    We should be able to select all inventoried fiels as a selectable column.
                                    Use cases for us would be:
                                    - Show Operation System "pretty" value (at the moment, there is NT Workstation X.Y, but we want "Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 1709").
                                    - Show serial number of the OEM.
                                    - Show device model of OEM.
                                    - etc.

                                    • Client uninstall and reinstall pop-up, add " Never show this msge again"

                                      When I choose to "Install Client" and then choose to "Uninstall Client" add an option to the pop-up prompt about networking traffic that I can select "Never Show This Again". I get this prompt EVER SINGLE TIME I uninstall / reinstall the client.

                                      • Add InventoryLog to replication

                                        Add InventoryLog to replication in a hierarchy. This would allow the ability to query the table from the CAS.

                                        • Client Notification – Option to Collect a Full Hardware/Software Inventory

                                          For troubleshooting purposes would like and option to run a full hardware/software inventory on a client under client notification. Because there are cases when you are trying to troubleshoot why HW or SW inventory data is not flowing into the SCCM database and the best way to do that is forcing the client to perform a full inventory and look at the logs. Delta inventories sometimes do not pick up changes on the client.
