How can we improve Configuration Manager?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Allow us to categorise Software Updates

    We have a few Software Updates that we just don't deploy. Every month, our list of "Needed, but not deployed" updates show these updates (for example, IE10). I want a way of filtering these out so we don't accidentally deploy them.

    I tried doing a search by adding the article IDs, but this doesn't work (as the attached screenshot shows).

    Maybe allow us to add a custom category for individual updates (such as "Do not deploy"), so we can then include these in our search.

                        • Provide the ability to set the number of PullDP that can download at the same time.

                          By providing this settings, it would ease up massive distribution of a package to many PullDP.
                          A setting similar to Concurent download on DP would be perfect!

                          As of now, updating a package hosted on 1000 PullDP will trigger all PullDP at the same time to update the package.
                          This cause high CPU and IO on the server as well as potential network load.

                          • Have a Deployement Type Requirement for an Application Installed\Not Installed without creating a Global Condtion

                            Instead of creating a Custom Condition of an Application's Existence on specific machines before deploying an app, we could have a drop down that contains the list of already created applications in CM and select the existence or non existence of an application before deployment of said application. Constantly creating Global Conditions is a little strange to me. Thanks.

                            • Allow uninstall of applications with dependencies

                              When you deploy an application with dependencies, you loose the option to uninstall it from software center. It would be nice to be able to uninstall the main app and be able to choose if the dependencies would uninstall or not.

                              • Viewing status of Deployments erases search results

                                When searching for deployments, say "May 2015", to see all of the Patch Deployments that you have recently deployed, once you double click/view status on a single one, you have to re-search for the "May 2015" deployments again. Suggest to use the Search Bar similar to the way that Explorer uses the Bread Crumbs on a search folder, so once you go back to the Deployments Tab, your original search criteria is there.

                                • Applications - Provide a means to have other applications run after an application is installed.

                                  There is the ability to specify dependencies for Applications, however the ability to run another Application POST install would be awesome. Often when an application is installed there is a post configuration task that needs to run.

                                  • Active Setup Integration - Wizard / GUI

                                    Some (MSI) applications (e.g. usually CAD software) will be configured via HKCU Registry hive, files in %appdata% or another files in user paths.
                                    It would be nice if a new user logs on (e.g. after OSD), these settings takes place automatically.
                                    This can already be done rudimentary via Active Setup, but not really comfortable (e.g. you have to do logging by yourself, no out of the box feedback in case of success / errors, etc).
                                    Please integrate Active Setup or a new fully solution for that cases as a GUI / Wizard in Application Management.

                                    • run not only applications on a tasksequence, seperate deploymenttypes would be better

                                      Not only applications or packages/programs run in a TS would be nice to select a special deploymenttype to run. In packages with programs is it possible why not with applications and his deploymenttype.
