Current architecture around SCCM’s management of SQL configuration and maintenance is old and hard to use. It requires a lot of manual oversight, and manual SQL tasks. And the default SQL settings created by SCCM are non-optimal. SQL is a powerful beast. Rethink ways SCCM can use it better, and keep it more optimally tuned and configured. Rethink how to run maintenance and backup tasks without downtime or impact to the production sites and deployments (this especially becomes more important with features like Conditional Access, that can never really have downtime.)145 votes
The Download Package Content step fails when used in stand-alone media. However, during media creation, the package content specified in the Download Package Content step does get added. Despite this, the step still fails.7 votes

Managing applications and understanding their dependencies is a significant challenge. Having the ability to understand what applications depend on system components, such as .NET or other, would be a significant benefit to ensure minimal production impact when working to upgrade an operating system or an application version. A recent example in a customers infrastructure was legacy software with dependencies on a specific version of .NET. Being able to see what these dependencies are ahead of time across the enterprise and manage them proactively would have been a huge win.61 votes
It would be very great and intuitive to be able to delete multiple apps \ deployment types\ deployments \ packages \ driver packages and even folders from Console without creating custom PowerShell scripts.
Today when selecting multiple objects the delete option becomes greyed out.18 votes
Currently, the maximum an administrator can give users to reboot their systems is 1440 minutes (24 hours). Please let us specify up to 7 days. The goal of the delay is to allow a reasonable amount of time for an end user to save their work and reboot without losing anything. The 24 hour limit means that if a user is gone for a day, there is a strong chance they could lose their work. Allowing up to 7 days seems like a better compromise between end user control and respecting admin intent/organizational need.46 votes

I want to be able to change language in the Configuration Manager admin console. Right now the console uses the same language as my system language (which is swedish). There should be language packs for the admin console.19 votes
Give us the option to restrict a required Task Sequence to "When no user is logged on" This would be particularly helpful when using Task Sequences to push out Application updates. That way if the TS tries to run while a user is logged on it won't fail as soon as it hits the applications which are set to "When no user is logged on"41 votes

Everyone has had the issue where a package isn't available during OSD. If we had a setting that enabled us to keep a copy of the previous versions this could eliminate that issue. I think it should be a setting with the number of previous versions that you want by default. And if there are scenarios where a package is updated frequently you should be able to override the setting on that package.4 votes

This is very similar to https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/10625580-dcr-boot-images-provide-an-option-to-prevent-re
so I may merge with that item as both would be solved with the same mechanisms
Basically, configure your detection method, then have a "Test Detection method" button which has a prompt to enter a device name for testing the detection method on.
would be useful in particular for the vbscript/powershell type detection methods.
Just needs to return an "Application detected" or "Application not detected" result.11 votes

In the SCCM Console (doesn't matter what version, I'm using 1511), If a task sequence is under a folder, and if you select View Content Status from the Reference tab, it will take you to there, BUT if you go back to the task sequence or click the back button, all task sequences are gone until. If you try to hit F5 or refresh, you will receive and error: "The requested object could not be retrieved..."6 votes
Thanks for your feedback. We have this item noted in our bug backlog.
The reboot settings only allow for the user to postpone a reboot for up to 24 hours. Why can't we expand that time or just keep reminding them forever until they reboot themselves? The longer that they have been pending a reboot, remind (pester) them more frequently. Or auto reboot if nobody is logged on.1,135 votes
The console is very modal. Trying to compare two things side by side is impossible. What we need is tabs and woodies. Let me right click a node or an object and bring it up in a new window or tab so i don't have to keep performing the same searches over and over again.15 votes
Have one search field for Users / Devices that will accept multiple serach terms.
One place where I can type Username/User Surname/Device Name/Device Serial Number/Mac Adrerss/GUID
and get a result will all possible assosiations.
if i search for Contoso\User1, I hould get all the devices where he is Primay user, if i sherch for Mac Adress it should return the device that have it. etc.

It's possible to create a new node in the console with favorite actions.
Favorite\Frequent Action 1 (Device collection)
Favorite\Frequent Action 2 (Monitoring content)
Favorite\Frequent Action 3 (Application Deployment)
If you want to add any action in the console to favorite Node, just right click on the action and select add to favorite actions...

In SCCM 2007 we utilized package with multiple programs. One install program that was silent to be used in a task sequence. One with interaction (appdeploy toolkit e.g.) for distribution to existing PCs. Once we moved to application we created multiple deployment methods with the appropiate filters. However if one of the deployment methods does contain the 'allow interact' option the application can not be added to a task sequence even though there are deployment methods that would apply to a OSD situation were it would pick the non-interactive one. Would like to see a logic check in the task sequence editor or the option to force a specific deployment method(s).
