  1. To be able to send wake up packet to a client from the admin console

    It would be useful to send a wake up packet to a client machine from the admin console to allow remote access if the machine has been turned off. This could be a check box option on the remote control screen. For example: "Send wake up if client is off"

  3. Fix - Console locks up on disconnected/reconnected RDP sessions

    In more than 10 different environments, over the past 5 or so versions of SCCM, I have found that my SCCM console will lock up when I have a disconnected session for over a day, then I reconnect to it. For example, if I leave a console, say, over the weekend, I can't do anything with it on Monday. I have to kill it from the task manager. Again, in many different environments. This is only on the site server, that's where I will typically log in and work. I have not seen this behavior in a remote console. Iā€¦

  4. List SMS Provider as site system role

    When decomissioning a site sytem, having the sms provider installed on that site system can cause the decomissioning to fail. By just displaying the sms provider as a site system role in the console, it's much easier to figure out that the fact that the sms provider is still installed is causing this.

  5. Remove trailing comma in primary user column

    When a device has a single primary user they appear with a trailing comma. Can this be cleaned up?

  6. CM TP 1801 crashes when setting new offset schedule

    *** If CM is installed on a server OS, why do you tell us to go to a client OS (on another machine) to use the ridiculous feedback hub for bugs??***

    I created a brand new ADR in TP 1801 and when I changed the schedule from custom to monthly, the error in the attached file appears.

  8. Enable a column for Windows 10 Build Version!

    Please add a column with the OS Build version to the console. It's really a pain when reports or collection querys have to be used to get this information.

  9. Add a column to device collections not only for Operating System but build/releaseid

    Is it possible to add a column to device collections for OS build / release id (i.e. Windows 10 1703 or Windows 10 15063.xxxx) to easily identify the installed Windows 10 version. The column Operating System is sometimes not quite enough information. Thanks!

  11. delete each collection member from the database

    The "Delete each collection member from the database" tick box clickable field extends to immediately above the "OK" button, making it extremely easy to select on accident. The field should only exist within the space of the box itself, or slightly outside of it.

    Make everything more secure by requiring Multi-Factor auth for console access. Bonus: make it work over the internet securely.

  14. Allow 'Windows Store for Business' feature settings to be changed/removed

    After incorrectly setting up a Windows Store for Business link, there is no way to remove or change this...

    Users need to be able to change the storage location, remove links to the Store or be able to update the key if it has expired. Currently it just says "The AAD credentials supplied must be tested before continuing." with an OK button.

  15. Fix button sizes in admin console Title Bar

    This has been bugging me for a while (since 2012 really)

    Why are the min/max/close buttons so big?
    They don't seem to use the Look & feel of the OS

    Attached a screenshot of the Admin Console running in Windows 10, but the buttons look so outdated and out of place...

  16. Please improve accessibility of SCCM for blind system administrators.

    SCCM 2005 was very accessible to system administrators who are blind. However, Versions after this from 2008 on are not usable. This has resulted in any system administrator who is blind who requires access to SCCM to perform his or her duties to find alternative responsibilities. Up to 2013 I happily worked as a system administrator. I loved this part of the IT industry. However, because so much of my job revolved around using SCCM I had no choice but to leave and refocus my efferts somewhere else. I ask Microsoft to redouble your committment to accessibility to include improvingā€¦

  17. Display active console users

    I would like to send a message to all users who have the admin console open. Just a pop-up that warns them of a reboot, or if I need to send out a custom message to all active sessions.

    I would like to also be able to see on the Administrations overview page how many Admin Consoles are opened up and connected to the site, and the user name. At the CAS level see all sessions if their are multiple primary servers.

  18. Fix Console performance on systems with touch devices

    If you have a device with a touch screen, and/or digitizer/stylus, the Admin Console performance takes a huge performance hit on general use, and may lag for several minutes when performing simple tasks such as viewing "Users", "Devices", "Software Updates", etc. Disabling the touch devices in Device Manager result in the same action taking only several seconds. Confirmed on Surface Pro 3, HP All-In-Ones, and a variety of other devices. This issue has been reported to, AND reproduced by, our Microsoft support contact.

    Example: I have a collection of around 1100 devices. If I view that on the server, orā€¦

  19. configuration manager returned a large number of results - UI request

    This is really a pet peeve but bear with me. When I want to search Devices within Assets and Compliance section of the Admin console, a message appears that says "Configuration manager returned a large number of results. You can narrow your results by using search. Or, click here to view a maximum of 100000 results." The functionality of this is great, however the placement of it is EXACTLY where the search box was right before it appeared. More times than not, I'll try to click in the search box and end up clicking on this message instead and theā€¦

  20. Better support of high DPI and UI scaling in the console

    I know Windows 10 is bringing much better support of HiDPI, but I don't believe the console is taking advantage of those enhancements.

    Most of the console renders OK on HiPDI screens, but there are many windows that are simply unusable due to improper support of scaling. The examples I've attached are from a 4K monitor at 150% (which is the default for Windows). This issue also occurs on HiPDI screens on laptops like the Dell XPS 13.
