  1. Export lists to Excel/CSV from Desktop Analytics Portal

    Will be great if it could be possible to export data from DA Portal, either after setting up a filter or all data (up to an acceptable raws limit), in order to share lists of apps, devices or drivers with people to review or action on them, regardless of those people not being DA contributors themselves.

  2. Enable DA without the need of SCCM

    The pro of Windows Analytics was that you can configure it in every environment without the need to have SCCM or Intune configured.
    Please re enable this way of deployment, also if it's limited to Read-only insights or some features.

  3. RBAC for Desktop Analytics


    1. As of the role in Azure is desktop analytics administrator, which allow complete access to this blade, any plan for a read only role ? or read only is possible with any other role, considering there is only 3 roles in azure for devices ?

    2. Can we have more granular role based access model in here with RBAC ?

  4. Detailed Windows crash data in Desktop Analytics

    Device Health in Windows Analytics has lots of useful information about Windows crashes, such as what caused the blue screen, the driver version, and other information. This information can be used to develop proactive improvement plans to improve the general reliability of our desktop environment and end user devices.

    Could you please add this functionality to Desktop Analytics? It would complement the existing information being reported for O365 reliability, although this is currently somewhat hidden by the M365 UI.

  5. Run Desktop Analytics queries from MEMCM console (DAPivot)

    You can run your own custom Desktop Analytics queries from Log Analytics portal.

    It would be easier for MEMCM admins if you could create/run the same queries directory from MEMCM console under Software -> Desktop Analytics.

    This new DAPivot feature could utilize CMPivot's UI ie. you could:
    - save your favorite queries
    - save the result set as collection (if showing computer names is allowed in telemetry settings)
    - export

    Thus, the admins don't need to utilize a different web console for getting additional info from Desktop Analytics.

  6. Add Device Health to Desktop Analytics

    Add Driver health and Frequently crashing devices or driver-induced crashes to Desktop Analytics, this information can be used to develop proactive plan to update devices drivers.

  7. Improve Mandatory Manual Input Experience

    When editing particular apps, you can select maximum all apps displayed in one page which is 15 apps at once (no more). This is very time consuming considering thousands of applications inventoried.

    In addition, it would be suggested to clearly described which attributes are mandatory to be filled in before we can move to pilot phase (importance, owner, upgrade decision)?

    In addition, it is not possible to add column "upgrade decision". This would help as well as add possibility to search for Owner in Azure AD.

  9. Show App Versions and Adopted Status in All Locations

    Under Plan Assets it may say "there is an alternative version of this app..." but the only place to find which version is under Monitor Health". Please make the information also under Plan Assets, etc.
    Adopted version available

    "There is an alternative version of this app which is highly adopted or adopted on other commercial devices according to Ready For Windows. You can consider deploying the alternative version if there are any upgrade blockers."

  10. Give the user the ability to view lists (apps / devices / drivers) of more than 15.

    We need the ability to modify lists to show more than 15 items at a time. Allow user to increase that to a set of values (25, 50, 100, all?) so we don't need to scroll through 50+ pages of applications to review for Desktop Analytics Deployments.

  11. Custom Readiness Rules

    Low install count is a great start, but we'd like see automation for the current extremely manual process of Importance by including additional rules such as:
    - Adoption Status: Highly Adopted AND Compatibility Risk: Low= Automatically set importance to Not Important

    These metrics are great, but they really need to be available for custom readiness rules. Large enterprises such as ours cannot currently utilise this service due to the sheer amount of manual process. We can't keep up with the new application versions coming in daily and then wait for the subsequent data crunching, only to be greeted with moreā€¦

  12. Custom queries on desktop analytics

    The ability to run custom queries and extract raw data is key for our ability to provide reports; if I have understood correctly this will be unavailable on Desktop Analytics. The advanced analytics option is paramount to our ability to provide reports, would it be possible to keep this option in Desktop Analytics?

  13. Create smaller DA pilot collections in MECM

    DA is able to create pilot collections in MECM for us. However it would be good if DA could break the pilot collections down into smaller collections.

    This would mean that we could deploy a FU to a percentage of devices identified for pilot rather than the whole collection (or need to figure out a manual way to break the Pilot collection up into smaller chunks)

    Deploying to the entire pilot collection could result in hundreds of machines with a particular application failing and requiring regression. Smaller target collections would help to build confidence

  14. Tell us why a device is included in a Pilot Collection

    Identifying devices for the pilot phase is great, however it would be perfect if we could find out why a machine is included.

    For example if we tag app "A" as critical it would be good to be able to see that "Device123" was included because it had critical app "A" installed.

    We can then also be confident that when we deploy a new FU we have app "A" covered but also that we dont have hundreds of devices with app "A" installed too - if we break app "A" during pilot we dont really want hundreds of devices toā€¦

  15. Drill down into the high-level data (Desktop Analytics)

    Most of the high-level reports around feature and security updates are useful, but don't let you find out the specific computers that are nearing end-of-service. I know this can be done in SCCM with queries and collections, but it feels like I should be able to get this information from Desktop Analytics without filtering on the device assets considering the analysis has already been performed.

  16. App Versions Details; Change behavior of slider switch

    Under a Deployment plan, in the Identify importance section, The 'App versions details' slider switch, currently seems to hide non-standard versions from being visible. Editing with this option off, does not address all discovered 'Noteworthy Apps'.

    I believe this switch should instead group all versions together, and apply the same actions to all versions found, then you can slid the switch on, and change an individual version if needed. instead of just skipping applying any settings to the hidden items, which is the current behavior.

  17. Powershell tie into desktop analytics

    It would be nice to be able to create deployment plans using powershell. The manual process of creating individual deployment plans via the portal is time consuming, and when working with the need for multiple deployment plans targeting different collections this becomes a cumbersome process. I can currently create and populate all of my collections via powershell, but I then have to manually create each individual deployment plan.

  18. Customizable Desktop Analytics security updates Adaption Goal

    By default, Desktop Analytics has 95% security updates Adaption Goal one week after Patch Tuesday. Very few customers can achieve that.
    Much better default would be 95% compliance from active clients (= client who have reported telemetry since the last Patch Tuesday) after 2 weeks.

    Because customers have very different adaption goals, each customer should be able to change
    a) Percentage value
    b) # of days after Patch Tuesday when the compliance percentage should be achieved

  20. bitness of apps

    Under the apps view in addition to version it would be useful to see the bitness of the app versions. For example if your doing a migration from a 64 bit app to be able to track and monitor the cleanup or target for cleanup. For example we have had a lot of Teams 32-bit getting installed and we don't want any 32-bit Teams in our environment and block it via GPO but they keep getting installed.
