  2. MVP-surface devices dashboard enhancement

    it would be nice to have information about driver and not just a view of driver version, but what it means. ie. if there are more than 1 version, driver is expired, if there is only 1 new version, driver is warning (expiring soon). otherwise it is up to date.

  3. Install MECM Support Center alongside client by default

    I have no metrics to back this up, yet I feel Support Center is under utilized as it has to be installed separately and manually from the MECM client.

    Could you give us one or more of the following options?
    1) Add an checkbox in the client install settings area to have Support Center install after the MECM client is installed.
    2) Have Support Center install by default like the MECM client
    3) Make installing Support Center an option in the Add dropdown under a Tools folder, in the TS editor.

    Great ideas.

    We don’t package Support Center with the client at this time because it would add 15MB or so to the MSI package, and we’re trying to avoid bloating it as much as possible.

    That being said, there’s certainly no reason we can’t have other solutions in place to make it easier to get Support Center onto client machines or to otherwise opt-in to having it distribute with clients.

    We will look into ways to improve this in the future.

  4. Support -Fast mode in more PowerShell cmdlets

    Can Get-Get-CMTaskSequence get a [-Fast] switch like [Get-CMApplication]

  5. Community Hub - Support Server Operation Systems

    Community is (hopefully?) a great tool, but locking it down to only being available in Windows 10 operating systems locks out a ton of admins from its features. Many organizations require the use of Jump Servers for running the Admin Console and block RPC outside of specific routes/endpoints, so they're left out of this great resource.

  6. Remove device from collection, via device properties > collections tab

    In recent builds of the Management Console, when you select a device from the device list (obviously), we have been presented with additional tabs (Summary, Check client detail, Malware Details... Collections).

    The collections tab is very useful to see where the client is referenced, it would be hugely beneficial if there was an ability to 'right-click' remove the client from one of the listed collections..
    It would save having to navigate away from the 'devices' section, to the 'device collections' section

  7. Provide end users with Estimated upgrade times

    now with many more end users workign remotely, there are far more variables involved that can effect how long it takes to perform an in place upgrade.
    it would be nice if there was something built in, that could basically speed test against the target sccm DP to be used, combine that with the size of the install package/task sequence references, and provide them a realistic guestimate on how long the upgrade may actually take.

  8. Application quantity property

    It would be helpful to have the ability to assign a QTY to an Application property and to be able to report against it. Purchased vs deployed=Availability. I have been posting the purchase info in the admin comments for myself but management can't report from it.

  9. Option to put SCOM Agent into maintenance mode when DP is put into maintenance from ConfigMgr

    It would be nice to have a checkbox like we have for deployments to pause SCOM agent on DPs when setting them to maintenance mode.

    Technically, all DP configurations are done by DistMgr, so it should be possible to update it with re-used code from the client functionality.

  10. Maintenance Mode Duration

    Can we please get the same options that exist in SCOM? It would be very helpful if we could set the duration for maintenance mode. See Attached.

  11. Application deployment and "Maintenance Windows" setting kills the application when downloading

    -Problem overview
    If you deploy the application under the following conditions, the running application will be killed immediately after the download phase.
    The customer has set "Maintenance Windows", and the problem is that the application is killed at a timing outside the "Maintenance Windows" range.

    This behavior is reproducible. (Confirmed with MECM 2002)
    I want to confirm whether this behavior is a by design or a known issue.

    -Repro step
    1. Set "Maintenance Windows" to the device collection. The next step is to set the installation deadline before entering "Maintenance Windows".


    1. In the application's Deployment Type properties, on the Installā€¦

  12. Display or Reinstall Users Previously Installed Applications in Software Center

    We have moved to making more and more applications available to user collections for a self-service model of application deployment. We still have multiple request for direct assignment to devices so users dont have to find and install their applications in Software Center.

    It would be great if Software Center could display applications that users installed and previously installed on retired devices. This would get us one step closer to providing that similar experience to the mobile devices.

  13. Show installed Updates in "Update" tab

    make currently installed Updates in the update section in the softwarecenter visible. That makes it a lot easier to find out what updates (MS or third party) is currently installed. For the admin and the user.

  14. Intranet client with domain user will not be able to get the user based application through the CMG

    Currently, when client machine connect to VPN which is in the intranet, only when the user is a cloud user, it will use cmuserservice endpoint. If the logged in account is on-premise domain account, it will access cmuserservice_winauth all the time then the software center cannot see user-based applications.

    Please add this feature to allow domain account to get user-based application through CMG when connect VPN as this is quite useful scenario.

  15. Make it possible to link Windows Update for Business with WSUS

    In an environment where clients are managed by WSUS, in cases where one wants to extend the application of critical update programs for a long time, Windows Update for Business can be used, but please make it possible to manage Windows Update for Business functionality using WSUS.

    Please add more detailed settings to the ā€œSet approval due dateā€ item in the ā€œAutomatic approvalā€ WSUS option, such as the ability to freely set the timing of approvals, etc.

  17. 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.

  18. OSDAdapterxTCPIPNetBiosOptions

    Section OSDAdapterxTCPIPNetBiosOptions
    Is "Enable/Disable IP forwarding." really the right description?

  19. Prioritize application deployments

    This an idea to add a functionality so we can set a priority from 1-10000 for multiple software deployments.

    Currently if one of the packages require a reboot and they get installed ahead of the others that will hold up the deployments until the machine is rebooted.

  20. Add Delivery Optimization to Cloud Management Gateways

    Egress costs from a CMG can mount very quickly, but if you had Delivery Optimization, this would make CMG a very lucrative solution. At the moment, egress costs are too high.
