  1. Allow running PowerShell script synchronously during Task Sequence

    When using the Run PowerShell script step in a Task Sequence, the Task Sequence waits for the completion of the script before continuing.

    It would be useful to have a "Run Synchronously" option to allow the Task Sequence to continue to the next step without waiting for the script to complete.

    At the moment I use the command line CMD /C START Powershell.exe to achieve this goal.

  2. Rename folder - re-order list needed

    After renaming a folder under Applications/Packages and probably elsewhere too, the folders don't re-order themselves until you quit and restart the Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) Console.

    Would like the folders to simply re-sort themselves alphabetically after renaming a folder.

  3. Improve app model logging

    Make it easier to troubleshoot application deployment with:
    - Consolidated log file
    - Make logging easier to understand and find the reason for failures.
    For a new SCCM Admin/Tech troubleshooting appdeployment is hard, have to understand the different log files and know which one to read.

  4. Stale Source Files

    I would like to see a report or a tool that runs against all my apps, packages, etc.. and the source location and tell me how many files in the source location are not associated to anything in SCCM, this would be great for O&M and keeping the server healthy.

  5. A select all and deselect all when setting security scopes

    We have over 200 security scopes. Some things, like ADRs, run and create the software update group with all security scopes assigned to that software update group and we have to manually uncheck every single security scope except the one we would like associated with the SUG. A select all and deselect all would speed this process up for us

  8. AD Organizational Unit Column in Console

    Add the Active Directory OU as a column option in the console. Really, any info that shows in the properties of a device should be an option to add as a column.

  9. Custom Update Description in Software Center

    Would be good if you could change the description of the Office 365 updates to match the update text or at least not include the paragraph about it not being possible to deploy via WSUS. It's just not something that needs to be visible in Software Center.

    Either that or allow administrators to overwrite the description visible in Software Center for users similar to custom severity. It's not a big thing, but I've had a few people ask about it.

  10. Do not create folders and collections trough desktop analytics

    Desktop Analytics create some folders and Device Collections (Deployment Plans, Pilot, Production, ...).

    I don't need it, I like to delete or at least to move this folders, do not re-create this folders and collections daily.

  11. Consistent behaviour throughout the console windows

    In Use Collections, Device Collections and Packages nodes one can press any keyboard key to jump to the specific letter in the list.
    In Applications this is not possible, nor in for instance Asset Intelligence\Inventoried Software.

    Would be nice if the key press behaviour was consistent throughout the console panes.

  13. Option to change Green: Good; Red: Bad colour scheme for very common RG colour blindness

    There needs to be an option to change the status colour scheme because Green: Good, Red: Bad can be a problem if you're Red-Green colour blind, which is a common form of colour blindness affecting 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women.

  14. Make SCCM Database Page Compression Check Enabled Part of Pre-req check

    Just upgraded from 1910 to 2002 and the upgrade failed and had to open a support case. Bottom line our SQL DBA made unauthorized changes to SCCM database and enabled PAGE compression on 370 tables in the SCCM database.

    Please add to the pre-req check the running of this SQL query if any tables are set to PAGE data compression fail the pre-req.

    SQL to Check: SELECT t.name AS tablename,

       i.name AS indexname,
    
    p.data_compression_desc

    FROM sys.tables AS t
    INNER JOIN sys.indexes AS i

     ON t.object_id = i.object_id
    

    INNER JOIN sys.partitions AS p

     ON i.object_id = p.object_id
    
    AND i.index_id = p.index_id

  16. Prioritize all activities in SCCM

    It would be useful if the activities in SCCM could be prioritized.
    If SCCM is busy installing patches, software updates can not be loaded until all patches are pending.
    For urgent software updates, the user must wait until all other activities have been completed. Partly several hours.
    Unfortunately, this is very impractical in practice.
    Therefore, it would be useful if software updates generally have the highest priority and patches get a lower priority.
    If an urgent software update is now pending, the patch installation would have to be interrupted IMMEDIATELY,
    then the software update (s) will be uploaded, and ifā€¦

  17. Product Lifecycle Dashboard reports SCCM nearing end of support immediately following an upgrade

    As soon as an SCCM update is installed, the clients for the previous version will be displayed in Asset Intelligence > Product Lifecycle as "nearing end-of-support in next 18 months". Each version of SCCM is only supported for 18 months anyway, meaning if you have 10000 clients then you immediately have a bar of 10000 installs nearing end of support which squashes any other products' bars on the chart - see attachment for an example. Obviously this is solved by updating the clients but this could be a months-long process in some environments so it renders the dashboard far lessā€¦

  18. Add button to add Automatic Deployment Rule Criteria to a new custom search

    Would be nice to create a new custom search from an Automatic Deployment Rule.

    Add a button near the "Preview" that will create a new custom search or replace an existing one.

  19. Software Update Group - Force a Restart as soon as the installs are done

    It would be great to have an option to force a restart as soon as a software update group deployment is done installing. Currently, as an example, if you set up a deployment to start on a Tuesday with a forced deadline install on Friday and someone kicks off the install on Tuesday and isn't paying attention to the toast notifications, the machine could be in a staged state until the forced restart on Friday. Along with this, if the user isn't paying attention that the updates are done installing, the next time they restart before the deadline restart happens,ā€¦
