  2. SCCM On Premise MDM Should Support Windows 10 Devices

    It would be great if SCCM On Premise MDM would support Windows 10 Devices for scenarios such as settings, required application deployment, wipe and retire.

  3. Introduce the Ability to patch Click to Run Applications like Office 365

    Currently Office 365 can't be patched with WSUS, instead you have to have your clients either contacting the Internet (not very good option for large enterprise), or you will have to distribute the new updated version on shared folders and define the new update source. it would be interesting to be able to use WSUS also for C2R apps.

  4. Make hyperlink on properties page take you to content status (was Admin Console UI fix)

    When in the properties of an application, package etc on the summary tab there is a hyperlink to content status. It would be a very productive update to take you directly into the status of the object instead of dumping you into the root of content status and having to search for the application etc you were just in.

  5. Configure multiple deployments in an Automatic Deployment Rule

    When creating Automatic Deployment rules, it would be useful to be able to configure multiple deployments.

    You may for example want test, pilot and live deployments to different collections and possibly with different settings. It doesn't make sense to have to create different rules with the same updates criteria just for additional deployments.

    The CM administrator may choose to have the additional deployments disabled to allow for testing, but enabling a deployment leaves less room for error, and is less administrative overhead than creating these additional deployments manually each time for pilot/live.

    It would also be useful to have theā€¦

  6. Increase Log file size and retention for OSD

    Client logs for OSD are constantly purged and overwritten. This can make troubleshooting difficult in a standard environment. For example, logs are saved to X:\Windows\Temp during winPE phases. This file system is destroyed upon reboot. Even after the WinPE phases, log files (especially smsts.log) are constantly overwritten.
    Please prevent logs from being lost or overwritten during OSD.

  7. Software Catalog - New application notification

    It could be great to have a notification (for users I mean) when a new application or a new version of an application is published in the software Catalog.
    Underline new version or special icon visible in the catalog.
    Little notification through SCCM client.
    And what about RSS ?

  8. Ability to click back when and re-try when a Task Sequence dependency is not found

    At the minute have to completely restart the TS when a dependency is not found. Could we not introduce a retry option once the dependency issue is resolve. Similar to checking for installation pre-req's

  9. Accurate Bug Updates Through Connect

    It's quite frustrating to spend time logging bugs with ConfigMgr through Connect only to have bug submissions either incorrectly closed (i.e. closed as a duplicate but also closing the referenced bug - will it ever get looked at if all active bugs are closed!?) or being closed as fixed but not adding any information as to what the fix is or when the fix will be released.

    Myself and colleagues spend the time and effort documenting these bugs with your products on behalf of customers so the very least that could be done in return is to let us knowā€¦

  10. When creating stand-alone media from a CAS, allow primary site selection

    Please add the ability to select a primary site or site code when creating stand-alone media from a CAS.

    When creating stand-alone media today, it automatically sets the SCCM client to install using the site code of the site that is used to create the media. When using a CAS to create the media, this will cause the client to deploy without a usable site code.

    You cannot currently override this behavior through setting installation properties in the Setup Windows and ConfigMgr step.

  12. Task Sequences should be supported outside of operating system deployment scenarios

    Task sequences are only officially supported in operating system deployment scenarios. Task sequences are incredibly useful with their explicit logic and tight control. There's many cases where it can be useful to deploy task sequences outside of operating system deployment scenarios for complex software deployment scenarios.

    Task sequences should be made a first class citizen outside of operating system deployment scenarios.

  14. Control cache size using client settings

    It would be nice to be able to control the client cache size settings using the client settings policies. This way you have a simple way to increase it if you have a package which is larger than the initial deployed size.

  15. Show version incompatability and allow ability to upgrade console to match the Primary site version of Configuration Manager

    Today, you can be running a console with one version, that is not in synch with what is running on the primary. The only way you'll know is if you are missing features added to a newer release or if troubleshooting leads you down that route. You have to check the about page in the console to verify version number and compare that against what is installed on the Primary site server to see if they match, what I'm proposing is an easy visual way in the console to inform you when your versions don't match, and to offer theā€¦

  16. PowerShell cmdlets need to be cleaned up

    I use a LOT of PowerShell ... and the PowerShell modules in SCCM are ... well... bad.

    Issue 1: I should not have to set my running location to a site to run a cmdlet. No one uses a set-location to make sure they are in the AD domain root before running a get-ADUser (unless they have a multi-domain environment and need to call something specifically), yet SCCM requires this to be true. It makes scripting needlessly complex.

    Issue 2: there are a pointlessly large number of cmdlets. Do I really need a Get-CMDeviceCollection and a separate Get-CMUserCollection? Why can'tā€¦

  17. Add Client Cache configuration node to Client Settings object

    As of right now, Client Settings are configurable during the installation of the client via command-line or via the client-side interface. I believe it would be beneficial to allow this setting to be configured via Client Settings as one organization could have a variety of different use-cases for creating disparate client cache baselines.

  19. Improve App-V deployments to non-persistent VDI's.

    Improve App-V deployments to non-persistent VDI's. Currently if you App-V applications to users in non-persistent VDI environments, there is a long delay after the user logs on before the applications install.

    If this could be changed so that applications are published significantly faster after a user logs in that would enable the use of SCCM to deploy applications to non-persistent environments. Currently this process is far too slow as users have to wait too long to get their applications.

    This was meant to be addressed in SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 however I logged a call with Microsoft and they saidā€¦

    Please don't forget about those of us who work in an environment where we can't connect to the Internet. I've been very concerned by Microsoft's cloud-first effort turning into cloud-ONLY effort.
