  1. Include Simulated Deployments in Software Updates

    Just like in Application deployments, it would be helpful to include simulate deployment under the areas of software updates.

  2. Halting/pausing to perform remediation task during an Install of Configuration Manager

    Too many times I've began an install of Configuration Manager, complete the pre-requisite check with no failures, then begin the install only to have some small issue an HOUR INTO THE INSTALL totally derail the install forcing me to start all over. There has to be some way of implementing a halt or pause during the installation to remediate certain issues, like changing the TCP port number the SQL instance uses so the SQL Server broker service can be configured. Or at least make sure that prerequisite check covers everything that could cause an issue later down the line. It'sā€¦

  3. Ability to override power button when Remote Control session active

    Remote Control allows the person in control to "Lock Remote Keyboard and Mouse". Also need to have an option to "Lock Remote Keyboard, Mouse, Power" button so that the machine can not be turned off during a Remote Control session. Younger kids in K-12 often do this to kick technology personnel out so they can use the computer, even if it's under repair.

  4. Correct the new bug with Remote Control

    Correct the bug that occasionally causes the "Cancel" button to disappear on the Contacting Remote Control Agent window. This is annoying. Hitting Escape will escape out without the "Cancel" button being present.

  5. Ability to easily list computers not patched against a specific CVE

    Say you want to list computers not patched against CVE-2019-0708 (https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2019-0708). 2 problems here :

    - Depending of the OS version, the KB number is not the same.
    -A KB number is quickly superseded and depending of the supersedence behavior, it becomes unknown from SCCM.

    It could be great if for each computer a mecanism could determine which KB is needed, if it (or a superseding KB) has been applied and produce a report.

  6. Make "Devices with Application" clickable

    Similar to the great and time-saving work in 1906 where we have a clickable link to take us to the list of machines that need a specific Software Update, can you please do something similar for Devices with Application when we click an app?

    A use case for this is where we have one remaining machine showing an older/superseded version of an app, no remaining deployments, and we just want to click through to see which machine hasn't updated. It might be an offline machine, or one that has some other issue. Either way, it would be a timesaver. Seeā€¦

  8. Capture SMSProvider data for console sessions

    Recommend capturing which SMS Provider is used to connect console sessions. Some environments have more than one provider and it is also useful for customers with Site Server High Availability implemented.

    Currently SMSProv runs spCMUpsertConsoleUsageData, which populates ConsoleUsageData, and is ultimately consumable for reporting in v_CMConsoleUsageData.

  9. Add "What's New" node to Console similar to "Technical Preview"

    Alos add the "What's New" node to the Console of Current branch. It would be nice to have additional Information and Scenarios directly within the console and not only within the release notes on "DOCS"

  10. Modify dependent deployment types in References tab of Applications Properties Window

    When you are in the references tab of an application and you select 'Applications that depend on this application', it lists the applications and the referring deployment types. There are hyperlinks to take you to the applications and deployment types.

    I expected to be able to click on these links and be able to modify the applications/deployment type. Instead the links open the objects in read-only mode.

    I expected to be able to copy this table data to put it into excel. This functionality isn't here.

    This makes the work flow more busy for replacing say a VC++ 2017 redistributableā€¦

  12. The ability to replace an application in all task sequences at one time.

    The ability to replace an application in all task sequences at one time.

    (Scenario: I have many task sequences for multiple regions, and have the same application in all of them. Then an updated version of the application is released, and I'd like to update all of the task sequences with the updated version instead of doing it individually in each task sequence. I'm not ready to remove the old app from SCCM yet in case some of our techs need it. I usually keep the outdated app for 3 months before removing from SCCM.

  13. Have the console alert when the task sequence size is reached

    The task sequence has a 32MB size limit for all policy. But for some reason they are actually limited to 16MB. But the Product Group is aware of the problem. I know they are working on fixing the 16MB limit.

    This will help us troubleshoot and determine when the task sequence has reached this size.

  14. Primary User (Auto Affinity) is not resent to SCCM server if already sent

    Somehow, the Primary User information for around 7000 devices (out of 18000) devices has disappeared, even though almost all of them have at least one user that has logged for at least the minimum number of minutes within the range of days specified in the Client Settings, User Device Affinity section.
    A workaround is to run the following Powershell command on each device with this issue (optionally restarting the Client to accelerate the results):
    get-wmiobject -namespace root\ccm\statemsg ccm_statemsg | Where {$_.TopicType -eq '1600'} | Remove-WMIObject

    Clearly, the Client is not sending User Affinity information for users that already was sent.ā€¦

  15. Batch script approving

    It would be nice to batch approve scripts, rather than one at a time. It's fine to review the code on each, but rather than go through each script wizard one at a time, it would be more efficient to batch them all. Thanks!

  16. Custom Tab for Monitoring Deployments

    Any chance you guys could make an option to have a custom tab for monitoring deployments? I use the Powershell App Deployment Toolkit and it sends error code 60012 when the user defers the installation, It would be nice if I could create a custom tab for that error code with a custom pie color that lets me know how many users have selected the defer option. Or at least make it so I can label my errors, I have tried using Return Codes but the error name and description is always Unknown Error (60012) inside the console.

  17. Automatic Client Upgrade: Allow option to ignore maintenance windows

    It is great that client upgrades now respect maintenance windows per the "Automatic Client upgrades - respect defined maintenance windows" feedback. However, we now are dealing with the opposite issue.

    We have very narrow maintenance windows defined for our servers and as such 75% of our clients were out of date 2 months post upgrade. It would be great for a toggle on the upgrade configuration so we can choose the behavior for the upgrade to respect the windows or not, similar to a normal application deployment. This way we would not need to manually push the client upgrade outā€¦

  18. Location information in Desktop Analytics

    The information in the three Windows Analytics solutions (Update Readiness, Device Health, Compatibility Assessment) can be combined to accurately identify the location of enrolled devices. This information can be used as an input to triage problems (is an issue limited to a network, site, region, or global?), preempt performance and capacity concerns (is there a trend in devices in a particular location?), and manage security (are devices where we expect them to be?).

    This information does not yet appear to be in Desktop Analytics. Could you please add this information?

  19. Detailed Windows crash data in Desktop Analytics

    Device Health in Windows Analytics has lots of useful information about Windows crashes, such as what caused the blue screen, the driver version, and other information. This information can be used to develop proactive improvement plans to improve the general reliability of our desktop environment and end user devices.

    Could you please add this functionality to Desktop Analytics? It would complement the existing information being reported for O365 reliability, although this is currently somewhat hidden by the M365 UI.

  20. Include Login Health in Desktop Analytics

    The Login Health component of the existing Windows Analytics offering is a useful way to identify patterns and issues in how people log into their devices. It is especially valuable when planning the deployment of Windows Hello for Business, or targeting training and deskside support resourcing.

    Could you please add this functionality to Desktop Analytics?
