  1. 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.

      • Console device view should allow search/filter by MAC address

        We find ourselves trying to go from MAC address to device in the console fairly regularly, especially when troubleshooting things like PXE from the logs (which only shows MAC address) and needing to kill off failed OSD records (which may be named "Unknown" or have a random computer name in ConfigMgr, but you're now in WinPE ready to kick off the TS again, but only have the MAC from ipconfig /all to ID the old record).

        The MAC addresses are already being pulled by Heartbeat inventory, but you can't search/filter of part/all of the MAC address.

        Thank you for makingā€¦

              This can be done today w/ #SCCM 1802 (and previous versions too). I will mark started… and watch comments for why this doesn’t just work… before I mark this straight up completed…

              Steps:
              1) On the CAS (or standalone primary), go to Administration → Hierarchy Configuration → Discovery methods
              2) right click on Active Directory System Discovery and bring up the Properties form. Active Directory Attributes tab, and then click on Custom. In the form that appears, type the name of the attribute. Click OK, and make sure you have added it as an attribute to discover. Run discovery after exiting properties form.
              3) Now when you go to the Devices view and right click on a device and go to its Properties form, you will see the new attribute showing up there.

            • Console -- Start -- client ping / mstsc with FQDN

              Make clients Calls like Ping / MSTAC witrh FQDN and not with Netbios. We have different AD connected to the SCCM . We can not use the build in features like Ping the clients or open RDP as the console only tries the netbios name and not the fqdn. It would be great to have all cleints call done trought FQDN

                  • Inventory printers (local and network)

                    It would be nice if there would be a report that shows all the current printers "attached" to a user profile (local and network). Without having to reside un custom SQL scripts or custom reports (for us the people that don't know scripting or SQL)

                      • 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

                        • store client boundary IDs in database

                          A client's last reported list of boundaries and boundary groups it was part of should be stored in the database. This will allow for collections and report built around clients within a boundary or boundary group.

                                • 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.
