  1. Incorporate the ability to retain a machines name when imaging.

    When reimaging a machine it would be most helpful if the machine would retain the name it already has. It greatly annoying that it gets renamed to "Desktop- something or another". Other imaging solutions have this ability (Acronis) without having to do it in some convoluted way; why can't SCCM? Thanks,

  2. Allow users to have different view/copy/modify permissions spanning across different Task Sequence folders

    I would love to have the option to allow our users to have access to some Task Sequence folders but, not other folders.

    I get the option to limit the folders but this prevents them from either being viewed or being copied/modified.

    I would like my Task Sequences viewable but not editable. It would be great if users could copy from 'read only' area into their 'test' area and can the create/modify without any risk.

  3. Pause a Task Sequence when you want, as many times you want with just a variable

    By default you can pause a Task Sequence by adding a step in the TS that will display a msgbox.

    It would be cool to be able to pause a TS when you want and as many times you want.

    It is possible by changing the ztiutility.vbs file and add the below process:
    - Create a new TS variable TSPause
    - If this variable is configured to True a msgbox is diplayed

    See a post I did about this:

  4. Task Sequence Download Content Show DP next to % Downloaded in Progress UI

    Display the DP the content is coming from in the Progress UI after the % Complete.

    "Downloading install.wim (64% complete) from DP: DPOINT01"

  5. Windows 10 customization - Add the custom setting to Task Sequence

    It will be more productive if we have a build in task to add to task sequence to perform the following:
    1- Windows 10 Background Settings.
    2- Windows 10 Lock-screen.
    3- Add custom fonts
    4- Pin to Taskbar.

    As of now we can achieve the above using script, but it will be grateful to achieve it by task sequence.

  6. Allow Windows features to be enabled and disabled within OS image

    Add the option to the GUI to enable or disable windows features within an OS install WIM in SCCM rather than relying on DISM. This would allow for significantly easier OS deployment and provide and easy method of verifying the features enabled in a WIM.

  7. Use SCCM Client Machine to manage PXE Content for OSD

    Currently 1E PXE lite client agent is used to manage the PXE Boot image for remote locations instead of downloading Boot Image from SCCM DP.
    Can you bring this feature in Endpoint Configuration Manager which saves huge cost for the company.

  8. Task sequence options tab - Enable/Disable Conditions

    there should be an option for disable/enable all conditions. For testing or debug, without deleting conditions, we can disable them and then re-enable.

  9. Fix OSD issue where device UDR and RDR do not merge

    When building unknown devices, the RDR and UDR do not merge, leaving an Unknown device record and a 'stale' correctly named record that is not managed by ConfigMgr. MS have confirmed that this is a well documented known issue and advised me to post here, so it can get some attention from the product team. Please advise

  10. Add option to place DPs into maintenance mode while running an OS upgrade task sequence

    Add an option to place DPs into maintenance mode while running an OS upgrade task sequence on the upgrade operating system step. Currently we run a powershell script every half hour to place non-responsive DPs into maintenance mode and bring any currently in maintenance mode that come back online out of maintenance mode, but it would be nice to allow the task sequence to do this to clear up the distribution queue.

  11. Extend "Model" field to Packages & Applications for Pre-caching of Task Sequence content

    The new Model field on drivers is useful, but needs to be extended to other content types, like Packages & Applications, where Model specific items need to be installed (e.g. specific HP SoftPaqs, or video drivers that need to run from .EXE etc).

  12. Allow usage of Deployment Tookit to remain cache durind OSD Deployment

    On SCCM/MDT integration OSD deployment the MDT Deployment Toolkit its downloaded for gathering information among other tasks, but because of multiple reboots during OSD the deployment toolkit is downloaded multiple times which causes delays during OSD, it will be great if we could download and cache the Deployment Toolkit during the OSD build to be re-use to improve deployment overall time. This way the Task Sequence knows the package is local and there is no need to re-download the files.

  13. Extend information options on error dialog

    It would be nice to have a button for extra information which shows a list of all the steps in a T.S with a Green tick for success, yellow for skipped, Orange for failed but continued, and Red for failed and ended the TS, along with exit codes.
    Having the option to export logs automatically to either a network drive or USB key would make troubleshooting remote deployments so much easier.

    Similar to https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/13880781-task-sequence-error-dialog-box-needs-to-show-step,

  14. Make SMSTSDisableStatusRetry disable all status retry messages

    SMSTSDisableStatusRetry is great but in my testing there still seems to be times in which status messages are retried multiple times. The big one is whenever you run a "run powershell script" step in bypass mode. Please make this variable supress all status message retries and speed up our disconnected task sequences!

  15. Show Ethernet connection speed before start OSD task sequence

    Sometimes the users just don't know their computer is actually connected LAN at 100 Mbps instead of 1Gbps due to network port issue or network cable issue. It will take almost 5 times longer time to complete the OSD task sequence. It just messes up the things. I hope the network connection speed info is visible in WinPE or give user a warning before kicking off the OSD task sequence.

  16. Import Task Sequence - Add Option to Create Duplicate with New Name / ID

    When Importing a Task Sequence, I'd like the ability added to Import a Duplicate, but it would NOT overwrite the original, it would create a duplicate with modified name and new package ID.

    Situation, I've created v1 of the TS and exported for sharing. Others have taken v1 and modified and started to use.
    I then export v2 of same TS and made available, others want to import but it will overwrite. Would like the ability to allow others to import v2 without impacting v1.

  17. Please improve boot media error messages

    We have run into countless instances where our front line techs get error messages from boot media. They never know what it means and always have to go to tier 2 and 3 support for resolution. Often the solution is something simple they could take care of if they knew what happened, but because all they get is some error code (most often the ubiquitous and generally unhelpful 0x80004005) with no context they don't. They also don't take a few seconds to look it up or read logs, but that's a whole different problem :) Today we just ran intoā€¦

  18. Please add an option to choose that a OS deployment on the target Computer will be only enabled when a capture on the source PC was done

    User State Migration: Please add an option to choose that a OS deployment on the target Computer will be only enabled when a capture on the source Computer was already done and the Migrated Data is on the Migration Point. Or add a possibility to query for the state Status in a dynamic Collection Membership rule. At the moment the target Computer can start there OS Deployment task sequence, even the migration data is not at the State Migration Point.

  19. Allow copying step from read-only task sequence view

    Following on from the excellent view only option added to task sequences - https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/20361052-task-sequence-view-only-option - can we have the ability to copy a task sequence step from this view? We can already copy text from e.g. Run Command Line but we can't copy task sequence steps themselves or view conditions on steps in a way that allows copying text from them so we still need to open the task sequence in Edit mode to do this.

  20. Apply Configuration Baseline/item during OSD

    When trying to move away from Group Policies to Configuration times/baselines and in every other scenario as well, add a step in Task Sequence to evaluate and remediate select Configuration items/baselines. Then we can select which one of the Configuration Items/baselines should be applied during OSD so the settings are present when the user logs on for the first time
