  1. 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.

    • Custom Reports should be migratable. Is there an intention to add too migration?

      Custom Reports should be migratable. Is there an intention to add too migration?
      Migratable - not in English dictionary nor sccm as far as custom reports go.

      • Description in Servers and Site System Roles

        As most large organisations we have roles on various servers globally. If would be nice to have a description field so for each of the Servers we can put in a Description (For example: Site the server is located).

        This way I so not have to keep referring to a list of servers and locations

          • Warning on saving a powershell / command line step that has curly / smart quotes

            With so many "How-to's" on the web, a lot of people copy / paste commands directly into the console. If it brings in smart / curly quotes, the command line breaks and the cause is not always clear.

            I don't know if there's any situation where curly quotes may actually be needed, so automatically correcting them might not make sense, but a warning would work.

              • FIX: Viewing Application Deployment Types Takes a Long Time

                Viewing application deployment types takes a long time, up to a minute or more, due to inefficiently authored WQL in .\XmlStorage\ConsoleRoot\SoftwareLibraryNode.xml.

                When you find this WQL:

                SELECT dt.* FROM SMS_DeploymentType AS dt JOIN SMS_CIRelation AS rel ON dt.CI_ID=rel.ToCIID JOIN SMS_Application AS app ON app.CI_ID = rel.FromCIID WHERE app.CI_UniqueID='##SUB:CI_UniqueID##' AND rel.relationtype=9 ORDER BY rel.Priority

                and replace it with this WQL:

                SELECT dt.* FROM SMS_DeploymentType AS dt where dt.CI_ID in (Select rel.ToCIID from SMS_CIRelation AS rel where rel.FromCIID in (Select app.CI_ID from SMS_Application AS app where app.CI_UniqueID='##SUB:CI_UniqueID##') AND rel.relationtype=9)

                in SoftwareLibraryNode.xml, data returned is identical and viewing application deployment types is reduced…

                    • Integration with SCOM

                      For example, I want to decommission a server in my environment.
                      I put the server in maintenance mode for 2 weeks (windows computer object in SCOM), power off (or not) the server.
                      After the period, if the server is no longer needed I manually delete the server in SCOM console and SCCM console.

                      In the period, the server is in a collection for any deployment and the statistic of the deployment is getting worse.

                      And in a large environment , for example 10000 + servers, the situation is even worse.

                      Can you add a opportunity for automatically deleting the server…

                        • Management Insights: Show Microsoft Products detected in your environment that are not enabled on the SUP

                          Managing your SUP can be challenging in large environments where other teams may be implementing new Microsoft products and forgetting to notify the SCCM Admin that it might be a good idea to patch the product.
                          With Management Insights now available in the Console it would be nice to show insights in what Microsoft products are detected in your environment as being installed, but are not enabled on the SUP hence creating a potential security risk.

                          • Boolean options in Software Update Search

                            Searching for the right software updates is a chore without the ability to choose between AND and OR. For example, if I want to see all updates released since a certain date, but want to exclude both Itanium and Windows Embedded updates, I can't do this by title. If I exclude "title includes Itanium", but then want to also exclude "title includes Embedded", the Boolean automatically chosen is AND, which doesn't give any results since there are no updates with both words in them. Please create the ability for us to choose our Boolean joiners.

                                • ConfigMgr Web Console

                                  Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.

                                  The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.

                                  With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.

                                  • Admin console should have a command line parameter for specifying a SMS Provider

                                    Allow the SCCM AdminConsole to be started with a Primary Site Server parameter:

                                    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe" /PS:server.domain.com

                                    That way we can use multiple shortcuts on the same management server (or on our own devices) to manage multiple SCCM environments for our customer more easily, rather then logging on their primary site servers to start the AdminConsole.

                                      1. Phased deployment should be extended to all deployments [application, package, patch] and not limited to only TS
                                      2. real-time monitoring of OS migration and upgrade
                                      3. Extend the feature that is available in 1802 for dashboards to displays a list of relevant devices when graph sections are selected for all dashboards
                                      4. Reboot management - need better control and customization. Enterprise look at giving more options to users. Similar to allowing IT admin customize the software center, reboot option should also be allowed for customization by IT.

                                      • Make a Dashboard with the Top 10 Client Errors and make them moveable or selectable

                                        • Installation Workflow for Software

                                          When create a new software/application you have a workflow-editor to create some chooses.
                                          possible you can check the regedit for a existing regkey, when this is exist go that way, when not the other way.

                                          that is importent when a software give more installation-return-codes back to go the right way.
