  1. Add option to remove all/mass devices from pilot

    I somehow managed to add all devices to the pilot (why is that even a thing?). But to remove the same devices from the pilot I would need to go through 120 pages and exclude again.

    Please add:
    Reset pilot group (remove all)
    Add to pilot group from collection
    Mass select by page? (maybe?)

  2. Office Analytics Inventory Scan Frequency

    Currently the Office Analytics runs every 7 days. This can be seen in c:\windows\ccm\logs\officeanalytics.log.
    The frequency is configured in the c:\windows\ccm\OfficeAnalytics.mof file. Shown below:

    instance of CCMSchedulerScheduledMessage

                   {
    
    ScheduledMessageID = "{3C3D7A92-7971-4D35-ABBE-3DBA77126143}";
    TargetEndpoint = "direct:OfficeAnalyticsEndpoint";
    TriggerMessage = "<DAMessage MessageType='CollectOfficeData'/>";
    Triggers = {"SimpleInterval;Minutes=10080"}; // 1 week = 7 * 24 * 60
    };

    This populates the table "OFFICEPRODUCTINFODATA"
    and the view "vGSOFFICE_PRODUCTINFO "

    The issue is if you configure inventory to be less than 7 days, the data does not match in the "vGSOFFICE365PROPLUSCONFIGURATIONS" view until the OfficeAnalytics inventory has run. For example version.

  4. Ability to grab drivers in DA

    A button of some sort to grab all the drivers that "needs remediation" or after you have reviewed all the drivers right on the DA azure site.

  5. Desktop Analytics Tool Showing False compatibilitiy

    We are trying to migrate from Win 10 1809 to 1909 and while checking compatibility details software like Symantec End Point protection, Cloud Strike and others are showing compatible however while running actual upgrade, we could see SEP and Cloud Strike blocking the deployment.

    Same behavior we have observed with Win 10 1909 to Win 10 20H2.

  6. Include device details in DA portal

    It'll be better if we have this support in the DA portal where we can see the device name and other details as well...

    currently,

    DA is not supporting this level of reports unfortunately, for SCCM you can use Hardware Inventory: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/desktop-analytics/about-assets#apps The product is designed to make sure we are not listing all the device to review but to review the app common within device. The App versions details setting is off by default, so this tab combines all versions of apps with the same name and publisher. The default behavior helps reduce the total number of apps thatā€¦

  7. Desktop Analytics: Can you please add a filter that allows us to show more per page?

    Can you please add a filter that allows us to show more per page on Desktop Analytics? If I could choose between showing 10, 50, 100, 200, etc. per page it would make my life much easier when I am just trying to scroll and search through. It would also help when clicking the select all button. That button in particular annoys me because it only selects all on a single page. So, I have to click next page and click select all, over and over. Please just let us adjust the amount shown per page and it will fixā€¦

  8. Mark End of Service devices on Release adoption chart more accurately

    I've noticed, that once certain version of Windows goes out of support, it's marked red in the adoption chart on the whole timeline instead only from date it's support ended.

    As if this version was out of support also few months ago.

    I would suggest to show such devices as "red" only from date when they are actually out of service.

  9. Add possibility of creating more than one DA pilot ring

    For the current setup it is only possible to have one pilot collection from DA. It would be cool if you somewhere at the prepare phase could pick number of pilot rings. That way you can have somewhat a more "secure" deployment flow for your updates if anything would go wrong.

  10. Device/ App Search

    Why have you not implemented a search feature in Desktop Analytics?

    I want to add a selected device to the pilot group but do not want to manually search for it over 233 pages to find one single device.

  12. Enable Reviewing multiple Apps at once

    On the main application Identify importance page, add columns with drop downs so that multiple applications can be reviewed at once without needing to open the app blade.

  13. Add App versions details slider inside App Details blade.

    When reviewing applications it is more efficient to leave the App versions details turned off but when an app requires a more in depth look turning this on causes the current view to be reset.

    It would be nice if when you are viewing an app in the blade there was a slider that when enabled showed all the versions with their details.

  14. Improve Mandatory Manual Input Experience

    When editing particular apps, you can select maximum all apps displayed in one page which is 15 apps at once (no more). This is very time consuming considering thousands of applications inventoried.

    In addition, it would be suggested to clearly described which attributes are mandatory to be filled in before we can move to pilot phase (importance, owner, upgrade decision)?

    In addition, it is not possible to add column "upgrade decision". This would help as well as add possibility to search for Owner in Azure AD.

  16. Show App Versions and Adopted Status in All Locations

    Under Plan Assets it may say "there is an alternative version of this app..." but the only place to find which version is under Monitor Health". Please make the information also under Plan Assets, etc.
    Adopted version available

    "There is an alternative version of this app which is highly adopted or adopted on other commercial devices according to Ready For Windows. You can consider deploying the alternative version if there are any upgrade blockers."

  17. Give the user the ability to view lists (apps / devices / drivers) of more than 15.

    We need the ability to modify lists to show more than 15 items at a time. Allow user to increase that to a set of values (25, 50, 100, all?) so we don't need to scroll through 50+ pages of applications to review for Desktop Analytics Deployments.

  18. Create smaller DA pilot collections in MECM

    DA is able to create pilot collections in MECM for us. However it would be good if DA could break the pilot collections down into smaller collections.

    This would mean that we could deploy a FU to a percentage of devices identified for pilot rather than the whole collection (or need to figure out a manual way to break the Pilot collection up into smaller chunks)

    Deploying to the entire pilot collection could result in hundreds of machines with a particular application failing and requiring regression. Smaller target collections would help to build confidence

  19. Tell us why a device is included in a Pilot Collection

    Identifying devices for the pilot phase is great, however it would be perfect if we could find out why a machine is included.

    For example if we tag app "A" as critical it would be good to be able to see that "Device123" was included because it had critical app "A" installed.

    We can then also be confident that when we deploy a new FU we have app "A" covered but also that we dont have hundreds of devices with app "A" installed too - if we break app "A" during pilot we dont really want hundreds of devices toā€¦
