  1. WMI Query Builder for Task Sequence Options

    In the Task Sequence/Options window, I can add a condition for a particular step by adding an "if" criterion that matches a WMI query, similar to building a device collection. This way, particular steps in a task sequence would only execute if a device happened to be in the selected AD OU or another, for example.

    But in the WMI Query builter for device collections includes a click-here type of builder, whereas the query window in the task sequence just has a blank text box.

    While I could either write the query by hand (and hope it's correct) to seeā€¦

  2. CMTrace select font eg monospace

    Allow to select view font in CMTrace, eg monospace. Per session (some files look better in default font, some would look better to view in monospace).

  3. Show Last Backup Time of Site in Console (SQL / Site Maintenance)

    It would be really useful to have the Last Backup Time of the SQL database and successful site maintenance task listed somewhere against each site. In addition, being able to right-click on a site and selecting "see backup log" would be useful (displaying the smsbkup.log or corresponding status messages for the SMS_SITE_BACKUP component via the console). This would make checking for successful backups much simpler for admins.

    So far the only screen I can see this being useful on is under Admin > Hierarchy Configuration > Sites, but it obviously fits better under Monitoring. Maybe a new node is required,ā€¦

  4. unknown computers distribution point

    make a separate Unknown Computers Collection for each Distribution Point, in that way you could make a task sequence available to computers in specific boundaries.

  6. Multi Tenant support for Microsoft cloud services integrated with ConfigMgr

    We hear this request a lot, so I'm adding it here.
    ConfigMgr integrates with many Microsoft Cloud Services:
    * WUFB
    * WSFB
    * Windows Upgrade Analytics
    * OMS
    * etc
    For each of the above services, sometimes a company may have multiple tenants. Please allow ConfigMgr to manage multiple tenants for each of these services.

  7. I would like OSD standalone media that allows access to the SMP on the network. I guess this would be more of a hybrid media.

    I basically want to be able to create standalone OSD media that allows me to backup/restore users files and settings to our State Migration Point. The standalone media now only allows for the hard link option when using USMT. If there was a way possible to maybe create some kind of USMT wizard in the task sequence on the standalone media that would allow me to move the users files and settings to a USB drive or SMP that would be really useful.

  8. Maximized SCCM console breaks Windows 10 taskbar autohide

    Currently, if you auto hide the taskbar in Windows 10, you cannot show the taskbar if the SCCM console is maximized. I have to make my console close to maximized without actually maximizing it.

  9. SCCM - Better Exchange Connect configuration with Exchange Online

    A simple Exchange Connector installation for Exchange Online is missing.
    It should be intuitive and easy like the configuration with the Exchange Server On-premise.

  11. Align Verbage in Software Metering with verbage on file details

    When creating a new software metering rule, the console asks for the file version of the file. However, what is really required is the product version of the file. Unfortunately, these are not always equal as some vendors have different values between the two fields. When this occurs and time passes by and you put the file version, you have no metering data.

  12. When deploying a task sequence you should be able to deploy to multiple device collections

    When you are deploying a task sequence in the Deploy Software Wizard, you should have the ability of selecting multiple device collections to deploy to (much like the 1702 feature of selecting multiple applications to add to the Install Application step in a task sequence.

  14. Client Setting For Cloud Distribution Point and Cloud Management Gateway

    Add a Client Setting for specification of Cloud Distribution Point and Cloud Management Gateway. This setting would allow to to select any combination of CDPs or CMGs in your environment to assign to clients.

    By adding this feature you allow for efficient client communication to a customer's CM environment while off network. US clients can communicate with US Azure Regions, Europe clients with Europe Azure Regions, Asia with Asia, etc.

  15. Add option "File/folder/registry item DOES NOT exist" to application detection rules

    Sometimes you just need to have an app that is detected successfull when something is not existing. Delete files or registry keys etc. It would be nice if there was a logical operator in app detection to select a file and then mark a box "NOT" or "DOES not exist" to tell the detedetection system that we are done when thi thing does not exist anymore.
    Now we need to use ps-scripts (to return something when file is not detected and nothing when it is detected) to achieve this, like:

    $strFileName="c:\temp\test.txt"
    If (Test-Path $strFileName){

    }Else{return $true}

  16. Available deployment status message once received in software center

    When we do an available deployment for Applications, Packages and Task Sequences in SCCM, we can't get the status of how many machines have received the deployment and made available in software center for the user to initiate.

    It would be helpful if we can get a report for how many machines have got this available deployment in the software center OR if we get a status message in DB to identify how many machines have received the available deployment in software center and waiting for the user's action on it.

    This will help us to create an accurate complianceā€¦

  17. WinPE wizard upscaling or hard-coded resolution settings for HiRes displays.

    It would be great to be able to customize the screen resolution in WinPE from within the boot image properties, especially on 4k devices where the native resolution makes it difficult to see task sequence steps/failures/logs in WinPE. I've read about an unattend.xml file that you can put in the WIM file but it'd be nice to have this a native feature of ConfigMgr.

  18. Deployment Type with version when auto creating DT

    There are multiple places where a reference to an application is only with GUID and DT name. E.g. logs.
    If the DT name had version number in the name, it would easy to see what application is referenced when you have more than one version of a product and thereby more applications.

    When creating an application for a Windows Installer, it would be great to have the automatic DT creation process to include the version, if provided, in the DT name.

    In addition, if the creation of a script installer DT could include the names and versions from the applicationā€¦

  19. Ability to stagger the start of each task sequence by wim download percentage.

    To reduce network load and decrease deployment time the ability to kick a huge batch of them off all at the same time and walk away while they automatically stagger the download of the wim one system at a time based on the last systems wim download percentage.

  20. Right click Applications and Packages for open datasource

    If I want to edit the source files for a package I open the properties goto Data Source Tab, copy the sourcefolder and paste it in the explorer to go the source.

    If I want to edit the source files for an application I open the properties of a deployment type, goto Content location, copy and past the content for edit the source.

    It would be nice to right click a package or application to open the source folder directly
