  1. System Maintenance

    I would like to see a way to do right click a collection and do a Disk Cleanup, a Defragment Hard Drive all with policy settings in place so that we can do simple maintenance on machines. Reimaging sometimes ISN'T the best option when users have finicky software installed.
    My goal is to free space, optimize the hard drive maybe even with a task sequence.

    • cannot access some context menu options from the device list or query - only from collections

      workflow:
      1. find user in 'users list'
      2. click on 'primary devices' for the user
      3. primary device opens as a query in the devices node
      4. click on the device
      5. copy pc name to clipboard
      6. navigate to device collections and to a collection containing pc
      7. paste pc name to filter
      8. right click the device for the full list of context menu items (endpoint protection, client notification options, etc.)

      Why can't i just right click the device in the query?

          • Include deployment in windows update for business wizard

            When you create a Windows Update for Business policy in the console, I suggest that the deployment settings are included in the same wizard as where you configure your policies. It creates a more natural workflow.

            • Windows Update for Business policy console resolution

              The default size of the Windows Update for Business Policy Wizard dosnt scale with low resolution. At the default Hyper-V console resolution the entire windows dosnt fit, and therefore the "next" button is hidden by the taskbar. An edge-case, but annoying :)

              • Reporting for viewing Active Console Connections

                In 1602 the v_CMConsoleUsage view was added so Administrators can report Connected Console Information (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgrdogs/2016/09/12/view-connected-configuration-manager-console-information/).

                This view is updated when someone opens the console but there is no record on whether it is still active or when it is closed making the reporting less useful. Another column should be added for ConsoleEndTime that is updated when the console connection is closed.

                • Quick view devices that require an update from the Software Library

                  At the moment there is no quick way to see which particular machines require an update. You can run a report from Monitoring, but that means identifying the update then going back to reports and running the appropriate report.

                  You can however see the the number of devices that require an update when looking at that particular update. A simple "More Details" button here would be useful which would show the machines that require the update or are compliant etc, without needing to run a report.

                  This applies to both Software Updates and Windows 10 Updates for feature updates.

                    • Percentage labels issue in Distribution Point Configuration status

                      When in the SCCM Console, under Monitoring -> Distribution Point Configuration status in v1706, I see that the percentage values aren’t interpreted properly. If I open the status messages for the SMS_PACKAGE_TRANSFER_MANAGER component, I see the real percentage values. So it seems that there is a minor bug in the SCCM Console in the Distribution Point Configuration Status view. (See attached screenshots)

                      • Windows 10 Servicing in SCCM should show computer names.

                        When looking at the Windows 10 Servicing in Software Library it tells me that 2 computer have 2015 LTSB. But it does not tell me which computers they are. There should be a list of the computers and which version is on the computer.

                          • SCCM 1710 console bug - TS list not displaying

                            When in the SCCM 1710 console and viewing the available task sequences, if you choose the References tab for a task sequence and then on the referenced item choose View Content Status. Then navigate back to the Task Sequence folder. No Task Sequences are displayed. Refreshing the console does not fix the problem. You have to exit the SCCM console and relaunch.

                                • Make Status Summarization and State Messaging faster on Deployments

                                  Even as Clients report hardware inventory, and reports show a software installation was done and it is now present on client, the status messaging in Monitoring of the deployment still lags behind by 20 minutes.... those are of course based on your reality and your Microsoft Minutes, but it lags far behind actual events. How can you help us get this status messaging more into "real-time"?

                                    • Multilevel sorting in console

                                      When sorting collections in the console we should be able to sort based on one field then by another field. As I am trying to do now, I've sorted computers by which have clients and which don't and then I would like them sorted by computer name.

                                      • Add Time Zone Column to Device Collection Views in Console

                                        Like many admins, I manage devices across multiple time zones. It would be nice to be able to sort devices in a collection based on their time zone, as reported by the OS.

                                        • Applications and Packages list view have additional tabs for DPs and TS Usage

                                          When viewing the lists of applications or packages, have additional tabs at the base of the view where the summary view, programs/deployment types and deployment tabs are.

                                          Also information about which task sequences an app/package is in. Similar to what you get when you delete a app/package which would make it easier to see if the application is still needed or when managing which DP's the…
