  1. OSD Deployment List Variables

    I believe that SCCM should have a means of adding a list of selectable values in the Task Sequence for OSD's. That is to say I add a Variable for "Department" this should then present during a deployment several options to choose from such as "Sales", "HR" or "ICT" So on and so forth. I would then be able to define custom actions dependent on the value of the "Department" Variable.

    It would be nice if this would work via PXE or Via External Media. I would love to hear feedback and would definitely love to see Microsoft pick this…

    • Maintenance Windows vNext

      Please do not force us to use UTC for maintenance Windows in vNext. This will overcomplicate MW's across multiple time zones.

      • Client platform filtering on custom global condition

        Would be nice to filter OSD Task sequences with custom global condition (Run only on the specified platforms).

        • Give us the option of integrating active directory and and sccm console capabilities.

          In many environments there are very few tech staff members involved in managing everything. I would like to see us have the ability to create a custom mmc or utilize a single console which can manage AD users and computers and SCCM. We should be able to then move objects about the directory or access SCCM data and actions within the AD console. I would like to be able to right-click a computer object in the AD console and get SCCM options such as resource explorer, inventory, reporting, remote control, add to collection, what collections is this machine a member…

          • Add an "All Items" category to Software Center

            Please add an "All Items" category to Software Center and have this displayed by default whenever a user clicks on a notification/toast. This would eliminate the dozens of calls we get from the end-users who ask "where's the update I was just asked to apply"?

            • Add some usefullness to the Asset Intelligence

              Provide some usefulness to create reports, pull uninstall information, possibly allow a simple right-click create uninstall package from software in the Inventoried Software List. Currently this is a mostly useless item as all it does is show the install count, does not even list the devices that have something installed.

                • Overview pane to monitor automatic client upgrades to new service pack

                  With R2SP1 automatic client upgrades will now function for the first time in an R2 environment.

                  It would be nice if that deployment wasn't hidden though so we could actually see the progress of the clients being upgraded.

                  • Rework the Asset Message Pane

                    Especially when I am testing a Task Sequence Deployment, I like to check the status messages that the SCCM Site receives from the clients.
                    Much easier to see steps and associated exit codes than waiting for the build to finish and trawling the log file.

                    Monitoring>Deployments>(Deployment)>In Progress>(Machine)>More Details> Status

                    The only problem with it, is that the actual dialog box that pops up has no window controls, so you have to drag the edges to read the info, and more often than not when you hover over the message so you can read it, it closes after a couple of…

                    • Browser plugins

                      If a plug in is needed for a webpage and it is not installed on the machine redirect the user to the Application Catalog instead of the vendor site. For example, user needs Flash, the page prompts the user to install Flash and directs them to the App Catalog. Do not know if this it technically possible but would be neat. Especially if it worked with all browsers.

                      • Be able to Set autologon during TS for Kiosk PCs

                        Hello,

                        It would be wonderful if we could set Autologon during task sequence since we can create really nice provisinog package from ADK and use DISM during WinPe to set assigned access to a certain account and app.

                        It would be awesome if we could somehow stop SCCM to remove autologon when TS is completed so we dont have to create workarounds after the TS is completed.

                        • Improve Task Sequence selection, hide testing task sequences, user based policy availability

                          we have 10 Task Sequences accross 10 countries, and 10 test task sequences that show up in the same list. It would be nice to be able to easily hide deployments that are only for testing, and not production. If at the beginning of a T.S. , user domain credentials could be entered, and that would determine T.S. availability. Or they could be greyed out if not to be run by that user.

                              The 1802 installer is broken / bugged when attempting to install fresh to a SQL HA configuration with a listener. The installer will not resolve or parse a named instance into the SQL string even if the pre-req checks are passed. We've tested against 1702 and this works perfectly, so at the moment we are unable to deploy 1802 to our environment at all, because of this bug. This is pretty disappointing as it means we've spent 3 days attempting to work out why this product will not install and has left our new environment without an SCCM platform. Not…

                                Thank you for the quick response. Did you save any of the logs from the 1802 installation or engage with customer support at any point? We’d have liked to solve this with you, if you do have logs let us know and we’ll figure out how to transfer them.

                                Thanks and regards,

                                The default window is too small to see the window pane contents properly. It always needs to be enlarged. Either make it larger as a default or allow the user to set the size and retain it across sessions.

                                    It would be awesome if more languages were supported for real-time Script deployment in addition to PowerShell. Maybe VBscript, Perl or Javascript, etc.

                                    • New Software Center (1511) still status “Installed software” is given as “Less than 1 MB”

                                      New Software center (1511) still the same bug than on previous version, where size of “Installed software” is given as “Less than 1 MB”, and only changes to real value when I click on the row.
                                      Do MS any plan/idea how to fix the issue ?
                                      Thank you
                                      regards

                                      • 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.

                                        • Seggregating SQL tables/views for SCCM Application and for Admins

                                          1286 tables and 7153 views, makes it an extensive and difficult job for SCCM Admins to create custom reports, as herculean task for finding where needed info exits, sometime data is available in multiple table/views, makes it tough to decide. Do you think it helps to re/design table or views naming structure in such a way that, set of them are meant for SCCM application for internal purposes which we don’t user for reporting purposes, and a second set of them are meant for SCCM Admin for creating report purposes, making the naming convention and data available in later section…
