  1. Infrastructure health Dashboard

    I would love to see a infrastructure health dashboard. A go to location for making sure all MPs, SUPs, DBs etc. are healthy, rather than having to go through system statuses in the console. Perhaps have some tiles that show how many endpoints are hitting each MP, SUP as well.

        • Add Software Metering information to Data warehouse

          Ability to add Software Metering Data to the Data warehouse. This will allow potentially up to three years of trends of application usage that would help greatly with re-ups of applications.

            • Install Behavior Message Edit

              The Install Behavior tab is a great addition to SCCM. I would like to have a third option (aside from the exe name and display name) like a message box that would allow me to type instructions to end users how to gracefully close the exe if its running. For example if the application needed to be signed off of before closing, I could instruct the user, you need to sign out of Application X and close before installing.

              • Allow the Deployment of a Task Sequence to have a "Available" date and a "Deadline Date" .

                I'm deploying a Task Sequence to update our company's machines Bios to mitigate the Meltdown/Spectre. It would be helpful for the enduser, that SCCM would be able to deploy the Task Sequence with a "Available" time/date and a "Deadline" time date, this way the end user is not surprised by the TS being deployed as "Required" and the auto reboot catch's them by surprise.

                • Report on Local Admin Permissions

                  For many years now Microsoft has strongly recommended that Local Admin Rights be removed. Would it be possible to have SCCM report on the contents of the Local Administrators group? Also, could we maybe have a wizard under Compliance Settings to configure these settings. I know Sherry Kissenger from MNSCUG has done a lot of work with this. Maybe the product team could pattern the solution after her work.

                  • Windows 10 Servicing Management without Task Sequences

                    The idea of leveraging a Windows 10 Servicing plan is great. It's a relatively simple process that can keep companies on a defined Windows 10 lifecycle. However, due to the nature of the upgrades and processes in which things get reset or reinstalled customers are forced to leverage task sequences. With the announcement of Windows 10 1803 pre/post configuration scripts, there now appears to be somewhat of an avenue where these items can start to be managed. However, when you look at our customers failure percentages for any deployment, you have to ask yourself, would a customer really want a…

                      • Disable "Configure Automatic Updates" when enabling software updates on clients

                        When enabling software updates for clients in client settings, a local policy configures the “intranet service update location”. It would make sense to also disable the “Configure automatic updates policy” under Computer Configuration -> policies-> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components-> Windows Update in the same local policy. This would prevent duplicate notifications from the Windows update service and prevent admins installing updates from Windows Update when a SUP is configured

                            I would like to be able to search for Task Sequences Variables and see where they are being used in all task sequences or at least be able to search a specific task sequence and see all variables being used within it. this is so when looking at TS variables i know if i can change or remove retired ones.

                            • Rename task sequence when copying it.

                              I'd like to be able to put in the name of the copy as I make it and not have to go into properties and then rename it. This takes forever considering how slow SCCM often goes. So to save time being able to rename it when I right click and hit Copy would be ideal. Plus having the copy cut off half of my task sequence name with Hex nonesense is annoying.

                              • The integration between APP-V and SCCM should leverage more of the APP-V scenarios of deployment.

                                Example: when deploying an APP-V package to a user collection as available via SCCM, the end user will have to go to the Application Catalog, look for the application and to install the APP-V package. The same scenario via APP-V will make the application available to the user in a shortcut at the start menu, when the user sees the shortcut and decides that is necessary to use that application, it simply click on the shortcut and the APP-V in the background makes the application available.
                                The scenario is more likely to have like a WSUS and SCCM integration, that…

                                  I think it’s time we all agreed that there aren’t enough unicorns in the console. I’d like to see support for unicorn emojis when I’m clicking around. The good unicorns for when things are going well and the evil ones for when I messed up something and it’s bad.

                                    In new software center. we can see both user and device based available deployments inside application tab. it's more difficult to identify which one is device and which one is user based targeted.

                                    If we add one more column to filter the deployment like user and device.

                                    • Software Center -> Installation Status - includes the version column

                                      The Applications Tab shows the version Column, it would be nice to have the option availabe in the Installation Staus also. If you have mulitple versions of the same application (eg VMWare vSphere) unless you click into it you cannot see the version number.

                                      • Remember selected option for All Subfolders in Search

                                        There was a uservoice that requested when searching in the console that All Subfolders be automatic. This request is now set to complete as of March 2017 however the functionality is still not automatic and does not remember as you move through the console.

                                        https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8342127-automatically-search-all-sub-nodes

                                        Having the ability for this to be remembered or the ability to set this as default under search settings would reduce the constant need to select All Subfolders when searching and switching between different views in the console.

                                        • Extend 'Share' feature in Software Center to Task Sequences

                                          Extend the 'Share' function to Task Sequences. In other words, allow task sequences to be shared, just like Applications can be.
                                          Use case for this would be for a feature update task sequence.
                                          We'd like users to be able to double click on a desktop shortcut that takes them right to the TS within the software center. Currently, we get around this by creating an application that executes a powershell command to execute the task sequence, but this is not ideal. Native Share support for task sequences would be ideal for this. #mmsmoa
