      • Adopt, Integrate the most used community tools

        There are a lot of great community tools/script/services out there. (Modern Driver/BIOS management, ConfigMgr Webservice ect.)

        We all use them with a purpose and because its need. (Functionality is missing in Configmgr)

        The MVP’s do a great job to support those tools but if anything at the backend changes or they stop development they may be broken.

        I know you dont Need to use those tools if you dont have the knowledge to read and adjust them but thats not How it works in the real World.

        • CMTRACE - load blocks of file instead of whole file into memory to speed up intial loads

          When opening file in CMTRACE, load portions of the log file (blocks) into memory instead of whole log so intial load is quicker and consumes less ram.

            • Wake on Lan feature that does not require deploying an application.

              I want a simple Wake on Lan tool on the SCCM console which does not require me to initiate it as part of a application or package deployment. I want an option available on the device collection level when, after selecting the device collection, is available upon right mouse clicking the collection. Perhaps this could go in the DEPLOY selection(to save on real estate) or its own option Wake On Lan.

              • Restart Components of Secondary Sites in the console through the component status

                Restart Components of Secondary Sites in the console through the component status and configuration manager service manager.
                This can be done on the Primary site but the secondary sites are not listed via the system status\component status.

                • hashdir.exe for SCCM CB SHA256

                  The old version of HASHDIR.exe tool doesn't work with new version of SCCM. This could be because of SHA256 hashing of SCCM CB.
                  Is there any possibility to release a new version HASHDIR.exe tool for SHA256 hashed content. This would be really useful whenever SCCM admins want to perform has miss match troubleshooting ...
                  This concern was raised by Stefan - https://twitter.com/stefan_farnik/status/1030075218365227008

                  • Improve and Automate the Content Cleanup Tool

                    The original UV item for the content cleanup tool was closed when 1702 was released. However, that item has several suggestions for improvement that were not implemented:

                    Handle in-process or failed content. This can quickly become a catch-22 where content is failing because a lack of disk space. In process I understand, but if content failed then an option to force it anyways and remove any content not tied to a valid package.

                    Support cleanup of the site server's content library.

                    Minimize the rights needed to run the tool. Currently, the tool requires 'Full Administrator' which seems overkill. Why would…

                          • Add line numbers in CMTrace

                            I often use a tool to search all log files for a particular entry, and the search results tell me what line the entry is located on within each log file. If CMTrace had line numbers, it would help locate the search results within the log files.

                              • Add Maintenance Task Results and Details to Monitoring in Console

                                Today, you configure maintenance tasks under the administration workspace in the console. To see the results and details around those tasks, you have to go into the component status and parse through the SMS_DATABASE_NOTIFICATION_MONITOR to see when tasks started, stopped, how many records were cleaned, or whether the task failed, or, you can run a query directly against the database that shows when the tasks last started/stopped....but even then the task names in the DB don't necessarily match the names in the console. I propose that there is an area in Monitoring workspace that shows the status for each task,…

                                • Add "color" (i.e. error level) filtering to cmtrace

                                  I open cmtrace for one reason: to find the red lines. Just thinking about opening a log file and dragging the scroll bar around triggers my carpal tunnel.

                                  Please add a button to quickly toggle between showing "all", "only errors (red)", and "only warnings and errors (yellow and red)".

                                  The logic (however rudimentary it may be) is already there. This is really only a (huge quality of life) GUI/view change.

                                    What the description says. I'd love to open multiple files with CMTrace so it can more easily be integrated with 3rd party utilities!

                                    • Fix Support Center on running app deployment eval cycle remotely

                                      When Support Center runs App Deployment Evaluation cycle locally, it uses Schedule 121, which is OK. However, when it’s connected to remote machine, it uses Schedule 123, which was deprecated at some point.

                                      Future release of Support Center should always use schedule 121.

                                      • temporary local admin permissions

                                        we need a function to add a normal user into the local Client Administration Group for a defined timerange.
                                        User requests admin permission to install a Software XYZ, that he is able to install this Software XYZ by himself.
                                        So a time scheduled "Software-Installation [add user abc into local admin group]" could be a solution. After this timerange, the user will be removed from this Group.
