  1. Browser management

    Currently only, IE, Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera are detected in the "BROWSER_USAGE" class
    Is it possible to add browsers (unknown) in the hardware inventory?

  2. Include the default boundary group as an option in the "Client Data Sources" boundary group options.

    This would help discovery CM clients that might be showing up on new or poorly documented networks.

  3. Allow more protocol options for managing assets behind a home NAT firewall.

    Allow more protocol options for managing assets behind a home NAT firewall. This was always an issue for our organization (education/research) because of mobile devices. But these days (Covid, working from home) it has become even more common and still difficult to manage these remote computers effectively. How difficult would it be to create an established connection that the computer isolated behind a NAT firewall to the SCCM host so that we can communicate with them more easily. At this point I am even unable to tell what works and what doesn't. (Scripts don't seem to, Remote control doesn't, someā€¦

  4. When applying a category to devices allow selection of multiple devices at once.

    When applying a category to devices allow selection of multiple devices at once. I started using categories because it was really the only way we can annotate any information to devices. However when dealing with over 1000 devices, it would really help if you could select more than one device and apply a category to them all.

  5. Add the Ability to Create User Tunnel Always-on VPN Profiles

    Please add support for Microsoft Always-on VPN profiles to Company Resource Access > VPN Profiles. Not all customers are using co-management and even some that do have not, or will not, transition that workload. BTW.... Company resource Access is missing from the categories in user voice. :-)

  6. Please add support for software metering of modern apps.

    As per article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/configmgr/apps/deploy-use/monitor-app-usage-with-software-metering , monitoring of modern apps is not supported. Most likely because of the amount of simultaneous processes being launched. But there should be an easy way to work around this and still have some form of metering on modern apps.

  7. Add column for devices that show C drive space remaining, or OS drive remaining space

    Having a column that shows C drive space remaining, or target the OS drive would be very helpful

  8. Track all Add/Remove Programs (like Microsoft Teams which are user based)

    If you check ADD/Remove Programs you will see programs like Microsoft Teams, which are not collected by SCCM. When you create an ADD/Remove report or SQL query, you will not see these user based installs.

  9. Add DelayedAutoStart to Win32_Service

    It would be nice if DelayedAutoStart was available as an option to inventory as part of Win32_Service. I'm not seeing a way to tell if a given service has a start up type of "Automatic (Delayed Start)" versus just "Automatic".

  10. Active Directory description attribute in column

    It's very VERY useful being able to see the assets AD description attribute on their list (via column selection).
    Although it is possible to retrieve the AD 'description' attribute by following "active directory description" idea instructions, people need to be able to use it as a column in the asset list instead of having to right click on the object and see its properties.

  11. Provide an option to mention a path for executable for software metering rules

    Provide an option to mention a path for executable for software metering rules.
    The software metering rule only allows us to mention file name and version. This becomes a problem when there are multiple applications with same executable name. Also, for applications (like Autodesk Navisworks) that have different modules installed at different locations and have the same file name & version, it is impossible to track usage for individual models for billing. It would be great to have an option to specify a matching path for the executable file in the rule.

  12. Seperate removal of users and computers

    Currently the Delete Aged Discovery Data combines Users and Computers so they are tied to the same aging process for removal. My preference would be to have 1 week for disabled users and stick with our 180 days for computers. We are a fairly large company and go through a lot of users. So we end up with a lot of disabled users still in SCCM which makes finding information we need very tough. We have a lot of computers that go off line for a while so we don't want to delete them too soon since it is ourā€¦

  13. Send Message to Device user to accept connection

    Send Message to Device user to accept the remote Connection.
    Users are rejecting the request as they are unaware of the connection requirement. So if we need to send a message explaining why he should accept request.

  14. Filter Asset Intelligence by collection

    Asset Intelligence shows information for all the devices registered in SCCM, even though the user running the console can only see a subset of devices (i.e., via RBAC scope). Due to the fact that different console users need to see different Asset Intelligence data, it should be very nice they had a dropdown list to select the collections, or just show the devices based on their scope, similarly to the "\Monitoring\Overview\Security\Endpoint Protection Status\System Center Endpoint Protection Status" node. Thanks

  15. SQL Editions Inventory

    Add granular reporting information to the default Hardware Inventory mof for SQL Server editions.

    Currently the installed software tables just show SQL is installed with no detailed data on edition or versioning. This impacts the reporting data taken by our assets and licensing team, for instance a server with the SQL studio tools can show in this report and be incorrectly assigned a license from the pool.

    We do use a custom mof file to get this information separately but would be beneficial to have the data natively in one table for ease of use and remove extra workloads.

  17. User Device Affinity: Temporary Assignments

    We manage our systems using only usage based UDA. User defined and admin defined were not being updated regularly enough and our data got stale quickly.

    We have since change to usage only UDA. Our challenge here is new devices or loaner devices do not have the applications available to the users until they meet the usage threshold.

    A work-around that we have done is create a PS script to force a usage based UDA releationship between the user and the device. We assigned it to only our support staff, so users can't go installing apps on neighboring devices. Thisā€¦

  18. Making CTRL+V (Keyboard Paste) work in the "Import Computer Information" dialog

    Making CTRL+V (Keyboard Paste) work in the "Import Computer Information" dialog would allow to quickly paste the MAC or the BIOS UUID, instead of having to accurately place the mouse cursor for a right-click Paste.

  19. Management Insight: Inventories approaching and violating max MIF size

    There's already a UVI for two to increase the default maximum MIF size. Regardless of the size this seems like an easy Management Insight win. Let me know if the existing limit is being violated or if some devices are starting to get close so I can investigate why. Obviously we need to determine which devices are in question.

  20. Change hard coded limit for HW inventory mif files.

    There is a hard limit of 50 MBs for Hardware inventory set within the data loader for MIF file. If you enabled AI classes to collect more data by SCCM, it is not unusual for these computers to hit this hard-coded limit. This causes an endless loop of resyncs being performed by SCCM clients. the resync then consumes network bandwidth and processing time on the client/MP/etc. It is not until it hit the Data loader that these MIF files are rejected and ultimately a resync occurs to start the whole process over. The hard code limes should be increased toā€¦
