  1. Add Description to Distribution Point Configuration Status Screen

    We use the description field to describe where the DP is located in the world, due to our naming convention not containing the location in the asset name . When performing monitoring I'd like to see the description field from the Administration\Distribution Points pane carried through to the Monitoring\Distribution Status\Distribution Point Configuration Status. This would make it easy to see which locations DP has an issue rather then switching to the Administration pane.

        • It would be nice to have a more direct/quicker route to a list of the infected computers when we receive a notification about malware.

          When we receive notifications of malware infections, it's at least a few clicks before we see what has actually been infected. Having this information displayed immediately could help reduce remediation time and potentially prevent an infection from having the time to spread more. This would be especially helpful if we could see more relevant details in the e-mail notification as well.

              • Content source priority

                With many organizations using few, or single high AD sites, the content source priority is less useful in a lot of situations. As an example: if an organization is spread out across multiple Geo's, and multiple locations within a Geo. They use one AD site per Geo.

                In this situation an organization could not ever utilize Peer Cache as regardless of SCCM boundaries, the AD site takes precedence.

                What would be useful to have is the ability to turn on/off AD sites as being used to find peer sources. And as an extention, the ability to use Peer Cache inā€¦

                • Ability to create custom alerts

                  I would like to have the ability to create custom alerts or have more canned alerts to configure in Configuration Manager CB. Having the ability to be alerted in the event there is an unauthorized deployment would be nice. Also site security alerts if there is an attempt to access higher rights within Configuration Manager CB.

                  • i could able to pull or copy the machine

                    In Deployment monitoring on the "Asset details" column

                    i am able to select single pc to see the error details but unable to copy the content from the console its read-only i believe probably you should make some changes
                    so, we can live information can be copied in detailed to excel or either live import present data to have it in single sheet as bulk.

                    so my suggest is :- if we get an option enabled to copy whole should not be read-only the information from the Asset details column
                    it may be falls under "Compliant\In-progress\Error\Unknown" column

                    so, with thisā€¦

                    • Ability to delete a deployment from the Monitoring node

                      It would great to be able to right-click a deployment from Deployments in the Monitoring node ad have the option to delete that deployment. It's a great spot for it since all deployments are listed there.

                        It would be nice to rerun failed Deplyoments manually directly from the Console via "right klick --> rerun failed Deployment".

                          When you target users with an available application that requires approval can that be shown in deployment monitoring as Waiting Approval after users have requested and as Approved once approved?

                            • Customizable Deployment Alerts

                              Instead of the threshold for successful deployment(Less than % Success) and Threshold for failed deployment(More Than % Failure).

                              Add the ability to select from a list of scenarios:
                              Success > 99%
                              Success < 50%
                              Failure > 10%
                              InProgress < 0%

                              I would sometimes like to receive an email when the deployment finished with one of those thresholds that provides the report of Success, InProgress, Failures at a specified time after the deployment or end of maintenance window.

                              • Open multiple deployments at once for monitoring.

                                I want to monitor many different deployments at once. I should be able to go to monitoring > deployments, select several different deployments and open them at once. Instead we have to open each one then go back and open the next one.

                                • Office 365 Client Management

                                  It's a good feature in SCCM 1710 to view the Office 365 client management as a graphical representation in the Dashboard.

                                  More beneficial if we render (or take reports) the machine details from that graphical representation. So that we can focus on that hosts by deploying or troubleshoot why the Office versions are not updated.

                                  • Add deployment status of waiting for Maintenance Window

                                    It would be beneficial to show how many clients are waiting for a maintenance window to start the given deployment. Possibly on the "In Progress" tab. Would also be nice to show which maintenance window it is waiting for.

                                    • Application file detection in user environement

                                      Today, we can deploy an application into an user profile (Ex : %appdata%; but it's not possible to check the file as a detection method.

                                      Unfortunatly SCCM isn't able to find a file into a user environement.

                                      • The ability to right-click a delopment status and expert results to file

                                        After clicking "view status" on a deployment, the ability to export the results for Success, In Progress, Error, and Unknown to a file (like xlsx) would super helpful.

                                        • Give an opportunity to view status of several deployments

                                          For example, We have 200+ deployments in \Monitoring\Overview\Deployments node.

                                          I want to see detailed status of several deployment.Nowadays, the sequence is:
                                          1. Searching a deployment. right click - view status. Deployment status is opened.
                                          2. left click on Deployments node.
                                          3. Searching a deployment. right click - view status. Deployment status is opened.
                                          4. left click on Deployments node.
                                          5. Searching a deployment. right click - view status. Deployment status is opened.

                                          And so on.

                                          It would be better to select several deployment and get this
