  1. 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.

  2. Make SUP products searchable

    Let's improve the Software Update Point Component Properties window by adding a text input box to allow searching/filtering through the available products.

    Scrolling through the list is not a user-friendly approach. Add to that the rather frequent product name changes and additions.

    A search box would make it easier to find and select the desired products in the list.

  3. 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.

  4. enable publish third party content from Software Update Group Members

    It would be very useful to be able to create a Software Update Group of Third Party updates and then use the context right-click menu to publish from the Update Group itself.

  5. Increase the character limit on collection queries

    Today if you have a collection with a large query such as for thousands of devices, you may hit a character limit. In larger environments, this may happen more often. This could be from a list query or a query with many ANDs or ORs.

  6. Download third party updates directly from WSUS

    When third party updates are configured and an update is published from a third party catalog, such as Dell:s or HP:s driver catalog, it can be deployed to a collection. When this is done the clients try to download it directly from WSUS.
    The download fails with a bits errorcode (0x80190194) which basically means a 404. I managed to fix that but got stuck on a content hash verification error.

    I would like to see the ability to use the setting "No deployment package" on an ADR which deploys third party updates but instead of pointing the clients to Microsoft,ā€¦

  7. Enable sending a Decline for an update to WSUS from CM console

    As above - it would be very useful to be able to pick an update from the CM console and choose to Decline it, with the Decline being sent back to WSUS on the next Sync. This would help with software update efficiency as endpoints would not scan against the declined updates. This can of course currently be done manually on the SUP but it's generally advised to do as little direct WSUS management as possible and leave it to MECM to do it.

    Add extra details in CMG Proxy log (SMSCLOUDPROXYCONNECTOR )log

    More details for below errors to clearly point out that Network Split tunnelling or Web proxy is bloacking connection /communication would be helpful

  9. "Assignment schedule" column/option to the Deployments tab

    Add "Assignment schedule" column/option to the Deployments tab for Applications and Task Sequence deployments. At them moment we have "Deployment Start Time" which is actually the available time (good to have but not for how much we need it) and not the actual "deployment time" (schedule at/Occurs on), which makes it really annoying when we have important deployments which need to be double checked for the right deployment time.

  12. Uninstall behaviour for application installs

    There should be possible to have Uninstall behaviour on applications the same way there is Install behaviour.
    Installing Zoom and Zoom outlook plugin via task sequence app model, I put Outlook.exe into the Install behaviour and it tells me to close Outlook before installing. When I try to run uninstall it does not tell the user to close Outlook.
    There is a lot of times, it would be very helpful to close an application before uninstall.

  13. Allow clients to update their own IP address into SCCM

    With many of our users working flexibly via VPN, hopping between sites etc. They may end up connecting back to our network multiple times per day and end up changing IP address frequently.

    DNS doesn't always update as quickly as we would like and therefore often when we try to perform client actions, DNS does not reflect the current IP address and client actions then fail.

    Could there be an option to allow a client to directly update SCCM with the client IP address to avoid delays in DNS catching up with current IP address?

  14. Add criteria to filter by Compliance on content status page

    Suggest adding a criteria filter for "Compliance (%)" on the Distribution Status\Content Status node to easily view all content that is not fully distributed.
    Currently you'd need to setup a series of Targeted and Installed filters, but this does not work well when the Targeted count varies.

  16. orchestration group - sort by sequence number

    If I have an orchestration group configured as sequence, I would view the members in the sequence number order without going in the properties of the OG.
    If I sort the members for "Sequence number", it uses the classic sorting showing the following:
    1
    10
    11
    ..
    2

    Could be implemented a different kind of sorting that follows the correct sequence?

  17. Add Scoping and File Structuring to the Scripts node in the console.

    Working with the scripts node in the console is great but if there was a way to scope out that node. We have different teams that dont need access to all the scripts. It would be nice to have different teams see certain scripts compared to other tiers.

  19. Deployment option for CMG available/required apps

    It would be useful to us for an option, similar to allowing application to run via task sequence, that would let us select which applications we would want users to see/install via the CMG. Currently most apps we use are deployed as available to all users but only a select few have the content distributed to our CMG and so causes problems when users try to install and ConfigMgr waits to download content.
