  1. Last Action Task Sequence Variable

    It would be great for error catching if there was a variable that held the last task sequence step. This would be good for logic in a task sequence group that continues on error and passes the last task sequence ran name to be handled by other steps.

  2. Using express installation files

    Integration of the express installation files from WSUS
    I think this is becoming mandatory with the size of updates of Windows 10.

  3. SMSTSLastActionName

    In our OSD image we utilize the _SMSTSLastActionRetCode for error capturing. This helps us identify in the log where the image is specifically failing, but it doesn't provide very much value to the technician performing the image.

    It would be nice if there was an additional variable of _SMSTSLastActionName, which passes the task sequence steps name instead of the return code. This would allow us to display a prompt with the action that failed in addition to the failure code.

    Thanks for all your suggestions and feedback, updating status to completed. This was actually completed in 1810 release, my bad for not updating.

    SCCM 1902 fast Ring released today

  4. OSD Task Sequence (1703) Not Displaying

    When running a task sequence to deploy a 1703 based image, the second part of the task sequence: "Setup Operating System" does not display.

    The screen saying "Just a moment..." is displayed instead of the SCCM task sequence screen, meaning you cannot see the progress.

    If the machine is left, it does actually complete the steps, but it would be nice to see the SCCM screen once again!

    Thanks for all your suggestions and feedback, updating status to completed since this appeared limited to earlier Windows releases.
    Testing with 1803 (Redstone 4) and 1809 (Redstone 5) have been fine also with Task Sequence Progress UI shown. The ā€˜Just a moment..ā€™ is not something under task sequence control, installing manually shows the same behavior.
    If you do see issues please file a bug or another UV item and we’ll investigate.

  5. When a console crashes and you are editing a task sequence, allow sedo unlock if user name matches yours

    It happened to me yesterday with SCCM 1602 CB, I was editing two task sequences at the same time, trying to copy a section from one into the other when the console crashed. I needed the work done and this didn't help as as soon as I started the console again I got the familiar message shown below. The problem is you have to wait 30 minutes for the sedo lock to be removed or use PowerShell cmdlets to try and remove the lock.

    I don't think that is necessary at all as there is already a retry button onā€¦

  8. invoke-cmclientnotification improvements

    In 1602 support in the Admin Console GUI was added for additional client notification triggers.

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/manageabilityguys/2016/03/29/whats-new-with-configmgrs-client-notification-feature/

    However there is still a gap in the functionality for this cmdlet. Currently as of 1706 you are still only able to invoke user and machine policy per the documentation:

  9. BootMedia Version and PackageID

    Place a file on the BootMedia to identify it with the PackageID and the Package Source Version. If you have different BootMedias (Test, Prod, ...) or FieldService that does not know which one they used to create the USB Stick, it would be very helpful, to easily find the PackageID and the Version of the Media.

  10. Display what distribution point is being used during a task sequence.

    When using a task sequence I would like to know what DP is being used since we have multiple DPs and would hope that I'm not using one on the other side of town. IE......Applying Operating System from "Distribution Point" or Installing Application from "Distribution Point."

  16. Keyboard support for Edit Task Sequence Variables

    Keyboard support to select task sequence variables in the Task Sequence Wizard to edit them. Instead of having to use the mouse to click them and change values. This is helpful when imaging a large batch of computers and using a KVM.

    Updating status to completed – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    Our 1906 release is now available which contains changes to make editing the variables easier when thereā€™s no mouse.

  17. Fix Supercedence behavior

    This is definitely in the catagory of a bug or design change.

    Consider this scenario:
    * app A deployed to a number of machines via required deployment
    * app a Version 2.0 comes out, we create a supersedence for the old app
    * deploy Version 2.0 to a small collection with an 'Available' Deployment
    * witness in horror as machines automatically begin applying the updated version
    * check the deployment after the fact and discover that a check box of ''Automatically upgrade any superceded versions of this application' has now appeared in the deployment, and is forced checked.

    No whereā€¦

  18. Remote tools - client setting to change client service to Automatic startup

    One of the biggest issues I hear with the Remote Tools is that when you restart a machine it takes a couple of minutes before you can remote control it again. This is due to the delayed start of the service. I assume that this cannot be changed per default but give us the option using a client setting to change it to Automatic instead of using a GPO would be really sweet!
    This is very similar to the following feedback item. https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8471107-fix-remote-control-bug-after-client-reboot#comments

  19. Integrate full inventory triggers into Support Center (HINV/SINV)

    Invoking triggers in the Support Center tool will queue a delta inventory, which does not address the conditions where BADMIFs consume the scans for DeltaMismatch, Outdated etc. where the resync does not occur. This requires the additional FULL INVENTORY CYCLE to create the next major scan version:

    [wmi]"ROOT\ccm\invagt:InventoryActionStatus.InventoryActionID='{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}'" | remove-wmiobject
    ([wmiclass]'ROOT\ccm:SMS_Client').TriggerSchedule('{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}')

  20. Qucik Deployment for a single application to a single machine

    I'd like to be able to do a quick deployment to a single machine. Similar to how EMCO Remote installer and PDQ Deploy works. I right-click on the target machine and click on install. I guess this would be similar to installing the ConfigMgr Client by right-clicking on a machine.
