  1. Software-Inventory: Click on the Software to see where it is installed

    It would be nice to double-click on a inventoried Software to see on which Clients this Software is installed.

    • Ability to run scripts from the SCCM server, like a built in Web Service

      Adding the ability to run powershell scripts on a SCCM site server when called from a Task Sequence or Compliance item.

      Some scripts need special rights or modules that are not available to Users or client devices. (ActiveDirectory, ConfigManager actions)

      Being able to add these scripts in the SCCM console and have them ran from a call back from the client or Task Sequence would save running multiple Web Services on the server.

        • Automatically Close

          Thank you for the Auto close of the executable specified on the install behavior, the problem I have is chrome.exe, aftre the application closes, it starts the install, if the user just starts it up again, it continues to run again, leaving 2 versions installed, chrome.exe, and new_chrome.exe, with the request to admin credentials to update, corrupting the installation

          Can we add to the Automatically close, keep closed until installation returns a Zero

          • WPF Support in WinPE

            A lot of folks are building WPF apps and frontends that are used at the start of OSD. The most recent PE has stopped supporting this all together. I'm not sure if this is the correct user voice, but the ability to whip up an app to run in PE makes OSD a lot more flexible. It'd be excellent to have it back and to have it be a bit more robust.

            • Add the ability to specifiy Dev/Test versions of apps/packages/etc and integrate this into Task Sequence logic for easier Testing.

              We maintain 2 copies of our task sequence. We make changes to the DEV TS then copy the entire TS contents into the Prod TS when we have completed testing. The issue we generally have is that we also have Dev/Test versions of our apps/packages/etc. If our DEV TS is referencing the DEV items, we then have to go through the Prod TS after we paste and update them back to the prod versions. In some cases, we've just added logic to test if we are in DEV and always use the DEV packages, but that adds extra processing stepsā€¦

              • Add the Option to rerun a deployed Task Sequence on specific Clients in a Device-Collection

                Add the Option to rerun the deployed Task Sequence of a Device-Collection. Also it would be good to have the Option to rerun a deployed Task at the Monitoring-Tab in the failed-Tab.

                • Update "Estimated Install Time" for applications based on previous application installs

                  Update the estimated install time shown in Software Center for applications based on install times from other clients. This could use an average of the install time over all clients or be more advanced and take into account system specs to determine an estimated start time.

                  • Saved Searches - option to add to the Search Ribbon

                    many times if we are working on some specific tasks we need to refresh the same searches often. It would be brilliant if we can pin them to the ribbon or if ribbon would have drop down list with favourite searches.

                    • SCCM Application Approval E-Mail User Manager

                      Add either a powershell cmdlet for application approval that allows for a parameter of e-mail to allow administrator to create scheduled function to query users manager through AD, or to add the ability set in the deployment to look up the users manager according to AD - in addition to the default e-mail to the SCCM administrators.

                      • I would like to see some kind of exception tab for Software installs based on user device or user device affinity.

                        I would like to a have an exception tab so I can put certain users or certain devices in this tab. This tab would be available after creating an application in the console and can be accessed from properties of the application the software library. This allows for those user or devices in which we have certain rollout of software or application that could be rolled out to most devices of a company but not install for something like a manufacturing device that needs to stay on an older version of software or not have the software installed at all.

                        • Add Deployment Type Requirement for Windows 10 versions.

                          We want to be able to differentiate the Windows 10 versions. Some Appliactions should only be available to a typical Windows 10 version for example Windows 10 1803. Now(SCCM 1810) we only have the option to add a requirement for All Windows 10 (x64) or All Windows 10 (x86).

                          • Install Third Party Software Updates during TS Install Software Updates step

                            Currently (v1806 or later) Third Party Software Updates are not being installed during the Install Software Updates step in a Task Sequence.

                            Ideally third party software updates should be installed just like regular updates during the Task Sequence. A machine should be fully patched (secure and end-user ready) when it leaves the deployment bench.

                            • CMPivot Web Portal

                              We have a lot of people who would love to run queries against our systems (Desktop Support admins for example) that we do not give direct console access to. It would be super helpful to have a web-based interface for CMPivot to allow people an easy method to execute queries.

                              In addition, a query builder like that of Azure Log Analytics would be helpful as well so we don't have to walk them thru how to write all there queries.

                              • Ability to deploy Software Update Groups to User Collections

                                It would make sense to have the ability to deploy software update groups to user collections. We have a few different user collections for "pilot" users. When we want to test new software we deploy to these "waves" of pilot users. This gives us the ability to not have to worry about maintaining the users primary device in a device based collection. We have device based affinity within client settings enabled. So if the user ever replaces their pc it gets updated within 48 hrs of system use. This will dynamically keep our pilot list updated. It's a PIA tryingā€¦

                                    • Phased Deployments - Reusable template

                                      Provide a way for a template of settings to be stored and invoked for new phased deployments, so the same collections/settings do not have to be specified for new phased deployments.

                                        • The ability to set the Client Push installation syntax from the client push wizard.

                                          Currently the install syntax needs to be set before you initiate the client push request. If your pushing to multiple domains or forests, you need to adjust your syntax, then go back and select your targets to push to. It would be nice if you could specify the install syntax for the client push during the client push wizard.
