  1. In the Packges search field, allow operators like powershell (Reader -or flash -or chrome)

    When searching for packages or applications it would be nice to use typed in operators. Example: Reader -or flash -or chrome, each string would be a match for any package with that string, so in this example all packages with Reader, Flash or Chrome would be listed. It would be nice if the query could be saved, the criteria system is great, just looking for a little more flexibility.

      • Ability to change site during loading

        Hi! I am working with different sites where the Internet connection is really slow. If I quit the admin console while connected to a site with over 1k MS, it takes a long time to launch the console again. During this time I would like to have the opportunity to change site to either the CAS or my local site. The blue drop down menu in the top left would be nice to have as an accessible feature during this time.

        Thanks,

        • On the webpage ConfigMgr 1806 is showing available July 31, 2018. It is not showing up when I "Check for updates" on 1802 Hotfix KB4342419

          Previous updates have shown up in the Updates and Servicing when soon after I clicked on "Check for updates".
          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/manage/updates is showing 1806 being released on July 31, 2018.
          I've tried to get that update several times since then, but it's not showing up.
          Screen snip of my 1802 installed updates attached

            • Please add folder support in Endpoint Protection - Antimalware Policies

              We manage desktops and servers in the same SCCM infrastructure but by different teams. When we create antimalware policies, we have resorted to prefixing every entry with either desktop - ... or server - ... This would be great to support a folder structure to keep this clean. We have 45 policies so far and that list will probably swell to 75 or 100. RBA per folder would be a bonus.

                • Primary + Secondary Device Icon indicating the Virtual Machine Hypervisor Type/Location

                  It would be great to have a secondary icon in the "Devices" view to indicate whether the VM machine type: VMWare/Hyper-V etc
                  (Physical Machines could have a Dell/HP/IBM etc etc. logo)

                  Perhaps if it's possible you could have a secondary icon indicate a Blue Cloud for MS Azure, Orange for AWS and Google Cloud icon.
                  (I don't know how you'd differentiate the cloud providers, perhaps a property on the boundary group to say that the boundaries contained in the group live within a certain Cloud Service Provider - or maybe there's a better/simpler way ... )

                    • distribute content wizard

                      When I am adding distribution points to a package it pops up that specified ones do not have a source distribution point that contains the content.
                      It is not true and seems to come by default and not upon a check.

                      • Stop Auto search of software updates

                        The Updates search should wait for filters or wait until the search button is clicked.

                        I find myself having to wait for the search to complete before I can add filters and get meaningful results.

                            • Use Office 365 groups for Email Notifications in ConfigMgr

                              More and more customers move their Exchange infrastructure to the cloud leaving nothing behind. All their productice and collaborative Solutions' exist in the cloud in the form of Office 365. Now most of these customers still have ConfigMgr. It makes sense to have the ability to utilize Teams and Office 365 groups for Email Notifications in ConfigMgr. Especially with the ability to have email approvals for app deployment in TP 1807.

                              • Ability to have role based permissions for script approvals.

                                In SCCM in the Software Library Scripts section. When a new script is added, by default, someone else must approve the script. You can allow users to approve their own scripts but that is a site wide setting. Is there a way to have this controlled by a Security Scope where the main Admins can approve their own scripts and others would need to have the new scripts approved.

                                    Add report periods of '6 months' and '1 Year' to the Client Data Sources dashboard. It would be really useful to get a better impression of what is being delivered over a longer time period than currently allowed (1 month max.).

                                    • Group/Sort by at the top

                                      Move the Group and Sort by on the columns to the top, not all the way on the bottom...

                                      • Package size in SCCM CB

                                        While navigating through the console you are able to add a column in the view to size of the package size for Software Updates and Packages. However this column is not available for Applications, could this be added on the next upgrade?

                                          would like to see the ability for Admin Console to remember where I left off when I close the session.
