  2. The WQL Query Builder should highlight, or mark indexed fields to encourage efficient query building.

    Many people build inefficient queries simply because they are unaware of the indexed fields available for the views that are referenced by their query. Can the indexed fields be marked?

  3. Assets and compliance

    In the Devices area can a column for the primary users email address from Active Directory or AAD be added and perhaps optionlly be able to add other AD or AAD user attributes.

  4. Make it possible to copy a single collection multiple times, instead of just once per click.

    When building out collections for whatever reason, you can presently only copy a collection by right-clicking and hitting copy, which creates a single copy of the collection. If you need, for example, 21 copies of the same collection, you have to go through that process 21 times. It'd be nice if there was an option in the context menu to select how many copies to make.

  5. Nesting Distribution Point Groups

    Allow Nesting Distribution Point Groups.

    We have an issue with not always wanting to replicate all content to all locations due to content size and applicability, but to specific locations determined by function.

    Examples:
    Site A - Imaging DP Group. (Server DataCenter Environments)
    Site B - Imaging DP Group. (Desktop Environments)
    Site C - Imaging DP Group. (A mix of Environments and business units)

    These three sites have different business functions. So while not all imaging content would be the same across the board. It would be nice to have if you could nest those three Distribution Point Groups into…

  6. Ability to run a collection sync automatically after a the limiting collection sync

    As it is possible to run ADRs after running a SUP sync, it should be possible to do it with collections.

    E.g.: you have a collection named "Workstations" and a collection named "Workstations | Windows 10". Instead of planning your schedule to sync first the "Workstations" and only after the "Workstations | Windows 10", there should be an option like "Run sync after sync of limiting collection". This assures that the collection gets updates after the first one is correctly updated.

  8. Add the ability to populate collections based on REST API call results

    So we're starting to get a ton of functionality around making REST calls into ConfigMgr to do things, but I would love the ability for ConfigMgr to make a REST call into another system to populate a collection.

    For example, grab all systems with the "VIP" attribute in ServiceNow and place them in a collection. Though this can be achieved today by pushing the data from ServiceNow into ConfigMgr or writing scripts around it, it would be much simpler if it was built in and supported to do these types of pulls. I envision it working just like a query…

  9. v_gs_environment AND variablevalue0

    SCCM SQL View vGSEnvironment.VariableValue0 is a 255 length nvarchar.

    We inventory PATH variables with this. 255 is not long enough to grab the entire value. Can this be increased?

  10. Include Right Click Option to delete from multiple Roles

    When right clicking a Device Collection or just a Computer Name in SCCM can you add the option of deleting not just from the SCCM Console but from AD and WSUS? One click option to delete from all 3 areas at the same time? This would help alot managing assets and cleanup.

  11. Collection protection from deletion

    I would like to see some kind of protection from accidentally deletion.
    Sometimes I find myself accidentally deleting folder or collections which I did not want to delete.
    Just like in Active Directory OU there is a protection for this.

  12. Allow ability to exclude systems from collections without having to add systems to a collection and then exclude that collection

    When creating a collection it would be nice to be able to exclude a system without having to add that system to another collection and then exclude that newly created collection. Something like a Direct Exclude Rule

  13. Show the collections a device is a member of

    Hello,

    I would also like you to put in the columns the collection option where when I do a search of a machine the information you give me is using but does not tell me which collection this machine would facilitate much information search

  14. Collection alerts based on membership change

    It would be nice if we could alert on any sort of collection membership change, whether it be a new device is added to the collection or if one is removed.

  15. Provide ability to define default settings for Collections

    Wouldn't it be nice to have like a "Template" which is used when the Create Collection wizard runs. The template for example could have prefix (like SD - for sofware distribution), a default Collection Update interval, the abiltiy to disable incremental updates when used etc...

  16. Fix include membership rules so that they properly automatically replicate collection membership changes based on incremental updates

    As we discovered via premier call (ticket #:16602356). If you use an include or exclude collection rule it is supposed to automatically update the collection membership of the including collection if the included collection membership changes.

    It does this properly if your included collection membership changes due to direct memberships or queries if using a full collection schedule. It also works if you trigger a manual collection update of the included collection or the including collection.

    However it does NOT work if your included collection uses solely incremental collection updating. The included collection membership changes itself just fine, however the…

  18. Make Task Sequence 'Collection Variables' available in the full OS as an environmental variables

    If 'Collection Variables' could be made available in the full OS as an environmental variables, I can then start to control other deployments, i.e. applications, based on the collection they are in.

  19. More granular monthly maintenance windows

    Monthly maintenance windows currently can be defined as a day of week occurrence relative to the first day of the month e.g. Second Thursday. However our business would like to define these windows in a different way relative to a specific day of week occurrence. This can be described in two different wordings that give the same result.
    Assume two maintenace windows occurring on September 27 2019 and October 4 2019, they can be described as:
    - Friday after the 4th Tuesday & Friday after the 5th Tuesday.
    OR
    - 1st Friday after 4th Tuesday & 2nd Friday after 4th…

  20. Collection creator property

    Collections don't currently show any information about who created it, or who last updated it. This information would be helpful to have in the collection properties window.
