  1. Bring back support for Linux and Unix clients

    I would like to see Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager bring back support for Linux and Unix clients. We have many situations where we cannot use Azure for deployment for our machines and we want one central environment. This includes air/network gapped areas

  2. 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?

  3. Add a "debug" indicator for TS Debug Deployments in TS details and in deployment monitoring

    Once deployed, it is hard to differentiate a standard TS deployment from a Debug deployment. It would be awesome to have some visual indicator of the "debug" nature of a deployment either in the the deployments tab of a TS details, or in the Deployment monitoring pane.
    Of course, having this extra info in both places would be even nicer :-)
    Regards from Paris

  4. Allow a grace period for devices coming out of sleep/hibernate

    At the end of a shift, users often shut the lid on their devices, and head home. If the device has a pending reboot, it will often get rebooted very shortly after coming out of sleep/hibernate.

    When devices with a pending reboot from a deployment are coming out of sleep or hibernate, allow a one-time grace period of 1-4 hours, so that they are not immediately rebooted at the beginning of their work hours.

  5. Orchestration Groups query

    Make it possible to add also "Membership rules" to Orchestration Groups.
    Static lists are outdated. Server groups was better.

  6. The ability to export cmpivot query results to a collection. Or the ability to manage a machine from a query result.

    An example would be installed software query. You find 50 machines with outdated software through cmpivot . You want to send them to a collection to uninstall or update them.

  7. Have the client wait for Windows Installer to finish if another installation is in progress. To avoid the 1618 error.

    When the deployment type is of type Windows Installer, the client should check if Windows Installer is free and not running another installation.
    Just to avoid error 1618.

  8. Combine the Co-Management Properties / Statging tabs.

    The tab for Co management is slightly confusing. The workloads tab and Staging tab should be combined. It will make more sense if you know that when selecting Pilot Intune just to the right is the collection and browse button to pick the pilot collection.

  9. Task sequence >>Run PowerShell Script<< fails firing events

    A Task sequence >>Run PowerShell Script<< step is executed as a >>-Command<< Apparently this leads to reduced functionality, events registered with (Register-ObjectEvent) does not fire. Suggest possibility to choose Run as file, using the PS -File switch + argument.

  10. Include Update Membership button for single endpoint under Devices tab

    Whenever Admin removes any device A from Collection X and adds to Collection Y then to check the resultant membership of device A instantly, Admin has to update collection membership of both Collection X & Y. It will be better if the Admin can directly update the collection membership for Device A by right clicking on Device A and click on UPDATE MEMBERSHIP. Definitely, it will save time by updating membership at one place only.

  11. Way to view site reset progress and readiness

    Site reset can be performed using setup. Progress is shown in the configmgrsetup.log.
    Also site reset "occurs" after active/passive failover. However if invoked in this way there is no easy way of knowing when the process has completed and the site is ready for service.

  13. Add a description column in the "Scripts" node in the Software Library

    It would be nice to have a "Description" column in the Scripts node in the Software Library. I have multiple scripts in my library and keeping track of them gets tedious without having a readily available description of each script.

  14. CMPivot Refresh Query

    Add a refresh button for CMPivot queries so you can hit ā€œRefreshā€ or ā€œF5ā€ to get fresh query results.

    If you run a query like ā€œService | where State != ā€˜Runningā€™ | where StartMode == ā€˜Autoā€™ā€ you get results. Say you waited 5 minutes and wanted to run the same query again to see if something changed. If you hit Run Query without changing the Entity, it just shows you your cached query results instead of doing a fresh run of the query. Please invent us a button to get fresh results. :)

  15. M365 Offline Updates Exporter Utility - Language Selection

    M365 Offline Updates Exporter Utility - Language Selection

    Provide language option for OfficeUpdateExporter.exe so that only content related to language of choice is downloaded for an update (rather than update content for all languages). This would reduce a significant amount of time and disk space when gathering M365 App updates.

  17. Switch boot image during OSD

    Ok, so we got the alternative to run a TS from within another TS. Each step of a TS and even the run TS-step give you the option of supplying a condition which opens up the possibility of a modular OSD (with similarities of the App model).

    But what if you need to makes changes to a boot image and want to test those before putting it in production?

    Since one (main) TS=one boot image you need to make a copy of the TS and test the boot image separately.

    If everything seems fine you switch the boot image ofā€¦

  18. Customisation of restart message

    The pop-up message displayed requiring the user to restart the pc after a software or update is intstall does not display information regarding the software requiring restart. The client settings in SCCM does not provide the possibility of making any such granular configuration. I therefore request Microsoft to provide a way of customising the pop-up messages in the concole

  19. Application Deployment with option free disk space

    SCCM 1906: application deployment with global option disk space

    i added a requirement of free disk space of 47GB for a deployment type and i wonder why its not working this way: show application in software center even with less than 47Gb but mention that its not installable because of too less free space...

    Now i dont see it in software center at all if less than 47GB free space and even if its already installed i cant uninstall it if less than 47GB are free after installation because i cant see it.

    Wouldnt make it much more sense ifā€¦

  20. Update the console installer version properties for hotfixes & TP

    Currently the version properties on the Console's install files aren't reliably the same as the version of the console that they will actually install, making them always up-to-date would make packaging the console as an application much simpler.

    For example- AdminConsole.msi's version is the same as the initial console version for a release and isn't updated when hotfixes are applied, eg 2002 with and without KB4560496 list the same version, but install different console versions.
    The same thing also happens on TPs, eg both 2007 and 2008's ProductVersions are 5.2010.1031.1000 but the TP2008 console is 5.2010.1043.1000.

    ConsoleSetup.exe's version does seemā€¦
