  1. Improve "Invoke-CMContentRedistribution" Method

    If you hit the "Redistribute" Button in the console, or trigger a content redistribution over Powershell/WMI, this method will always copy over all content of a package to the Distribution Point.
    However, it would make sense to only copy the data that is needed.
    Example 1: Your package contains hundreds of files. One file has a “hash mismatch” error, so the package gets into the failed state. The only way to fix this issue is to “Redistribute” or use Invoke-CMContentRedistribution. This will copy over everything instead of the single file that is corrupt.
    Example 2: A distribution is offline for…

    • Create Option to upload csv/import of Duplicate Hardware Identifiers

      Under Administration/Site Config/Sites/<site>/Hierarchy Settings;
      It would be nice to be able to upload a list of Duplicate Hardware Identifiers. saving the tedious process of imputing a large list of mac addresses. I currently scan the mac addresses in but even with a barcode scanner it is time consuming. Either making a text area to enter a list of ID's or allowing for a .csv or some type of file to be uploaded would be great!

      • Allow to defer installation / update / whatever for X hours / days from the time a user first sees a notification

        Sometimes it's useful to allow a user who has been away for some time to defer an installation for the same amount of time (in days) that other users had (e.g. Win10 Feature Updates) rather than defer until a hard deadline. It would be great to specify that an installation or update could be deferred by the user for X amount of time since the first time they were actually notified. Perhaps as a bonus also have the ability to still have a hard deadline furhter in the future.

        e.g. Users have 2 weeks to install the feature update from…

        • SMS_ConfigurationItemLatest.ObjectPath property is null

          Both the iResultObject from Get-CMConfigurationItem and the SMS_ConfigurationItemLatest object returned from a WMI query have a null value as the objectpath property.

          Current workaround is to make recursive queries on SMS_ObjectContainerNode to get the ObjectPath of these objects.

          • Import/Export Cmdlet Parameter aliases

            Could we please have a common alias for the file path parameters in the various import/export cmdlets?

            For example, currently we have:
            1. Export-CMBaseline uses -Path to set output path, and
            2. Export-CMTaskSequence uses -ExportFilePath.

            Then we have:
            1. Import-CMBaseline using -FileName to determine location of exported files
            2. Import-CMApplication using -FilePath,
            3. Import-CMTasksequence using -Path.

            A common alias like "Path" or "FilePath" for all these parameters will be very handy in reducing complexity of scripts calling your Cmdlets.

              • Different detection methods for install and uninstall

                We need to be able to have different detection methods for install and uninstall. For large software we need to know that files x, y & z need to exist, shortcuts in the start menu and uninstall entry in the registry. That will be the install detection. All of this needs to be true. But for uninstall we need to know if any of those are still there. The differens is "and" (for install) and "or" (for uninstall).

                Detection should also be possible by a ps1-file in the source folder.

                    • When reviewing the status of a software update, allow opening a list of computers that still need it directly in the console

                      When viewing a software update in the console, it only shows the number of systems that are compliant, non-compliant, etc. next to the pie chart. Modify that so each number is a hyperlink that when clicked opens a new node under Devices showing the list of systems that are in that state for that update. Having the ability to quickly see which systems still need an update in the console would be extremely useful. Having to run a report every time is slow and cumbersome.

                      • Make the Custom Tab a User Client Setting instead of a Device Client Setting

                        It would be useful to many orgs if the "Custom Tab" setting, for Software Center, was a User Client setting instead of a Device Client setting. This way we could set sites for departments, or groups, and no matter what machine they sign into it will always display the page (SharePoint, etc) that we would like them to see.

                        For instance, in my own environment, we have users utilizing upwards of 20 different PCs a day. They don't have a "primary PC", and user device affinity is not accurate enough for us (through no fault of UDA; it works fine…

                            • Shorten Endpoint Protection column titles in results pane

                              In the SCCM Admin Console it would be nice to have shorter names for the column titles. Specifically the Endpoint Protection Definition columns.

                              I often setup Endpoint Protection Definition Last Version / Last Update Time/ Last Full Scan End Time

                              These take up a lot of room and require scrolling. It would be nice to abbreviate Endpoint Protection Definition to EP Def.

                                • CMTrace skip on Max Line Length

                                  When opening logs with large line blocks if the line is too long cmtrace will halt loading the rest of the logfile. This is often scene with the smsts.log when running a USMT migration. The DirectoryListing response string is several hundred thousand lines long, and the last line displayed in the log is the line above that response.

                                  It would be nice if CMTrace skip lines when this occurs instead of only displaying up to that point.

                                  • CMpivot - export failures, offline

                                    On the bottem of the CMPivot you can see offline and failures.
                                    Would like option to export those or at least see which system are offline or we get failures

                                    • Enable Application deployment both from ConfigMgr as from Intune in co-management scenario

                                      When a device is co-managed, in the Company Portal the Intune Applications are not available. There is a message shown to redirect the user to the Software Center. For customers without CMG, and because this isn't possible in a CSP-tenant -a lot of customers-, there is no possibility to install applications outside the company network.

                                      That's really annoying as Intune is perfectly capable of installing applications...

                                      For me Modern Management is without CMG, so please make is possible to install applications both from Company Portal (Intune) and Software Center (ConfigMgr) at the same time. If that isn't possible, maybe through…

                                      • Client does a full uninstall and forces deletion of CCM,CCMSetup and CCMCache directories

                                        On SCCM CB 1702
                                        Currently when you do:
                                        A client push from the Console and select “Uninstall first”
                                        A manual CMSetup /uninstall
                                        Neither will fully delete all 3 directories, leaving corrupted SQLCE/SDF files ( there may be others , but you get the idea)
                                        I have had to resort to a rough script to meet my goals

                                        A switch to nuke from orbit would be very useful in GUI and for CCMSetup

                                        • New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment missing -RequirePostRebootFullScan option.

                                          The New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment command is missing the -RequirePostRebootFullScan option. This should be added similar to the New-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment command.
