    • Add processor architecture (x64/x86) to Check Readiness step

      Some task sequences can run only on the correct processor architecture e.g. cannot upgrade Win7 x86 to Win10 x64 or cannot install x64 OS to 32 bit device.

      Add processor architecture (x64/x86) to Check Readiness step. Thus, the incorrect task sequence is immediately canceled if you try to install wrong architecture TS.

      • Add Tenant ID and Service Instance to the Microsoft Intune Subscription View in Admin Console

        It is always hard to find tenantID, Onmicrosoft.com address and Service Instance when managing Intune in Hybrid.
        It would be of great help if we could get this information in the Microsoft Intune Subscription View in the ConfigMgr Admin Console

        • DCR: OSD Task Sequence - Create Baseline of existing TS and allow Remediation

          From my field experience I have seen many times OS Deployments which did not really succeed, because of Continue on error conditions. In most cases the reason was to not end up with systems staying in Provisioning Mode. I know some guys just "re-deploy" the TS with checks if everything was done properly. This brought up the idea - why not using Compliance Settings for this purpose? At least to check if the system meets the Desired Baseline. Everything needed should be stored in the Task Sequence anyway and it would allow a "Report" summary client side after Deployment.

            • Refresh Search New Collection

              when creating a new collection from a search result (ie. user/device). once the collection is created, the search should not be refreshed. as today, the search is cleared. if you have a custom search, you need to apply all filters or load the search again, and it can take time on large environments

              • view status

                the view status option (ie deployment, content status, etc). only allow 1 option each time, so if you click view status and need to go back to the list it will refresh and you may need to filter it back and view status on the other one that you want. it would be good if the view status could be done on selected items, so you click view status (maybe right click the select and view status) and it would create the node for all selected items

                • Re-think task sequence policy download in OS

                  Currently deployed task sequences create a lot of policy download and slow down the initialisation of a workstation. If they worked like in bootable media, or another way - I don't know if say downloading the TS policies as a zip would help?

                  • Linked Reports from within other reports - folder reference

                    Microsoft reports that have other reports linked, donā€™t work anymore with our modified folder structure. So we applied changes to those MS reports. In this case we didnā€™t create our own report but modified the MS reports. -> links should be added like this: ..\subfolder\reportname, not using the complete hardcoded folder structure. That way ā€“ since the linked reports are always in the same folder or in the subfolder like in the default structure ā€“ all links will work no matter in which folder the report actually sits.

                    • Add subfolder search to Task Sequence Install Package

                      When you use the action "Install Package" you can search for the package but it only searches the selected folder and not the structure. Could a switch be added to search subfolders?

                      • Fix German translation for ā€˜complianceā€™

                        When using the German version of the SCCM Console, Reports, Software Center or Control Panel Applet the word ā€˜complianceā€™ is translated with ā€˜Kompatibelā€™ which is the German word for ā€˜compatibleā€™

                        This doesnĀ“t really make sense and should be translated with a better German Word like ā€˜KonformitƤtā€™

                          • Simplifiy and increase visibility of the system tray icons

                            The system tray icons for Software Center and Software Updates are too small for most users to decipher. Most users cannot tell that the system tray icon for pending software is a package with a green or red asterisk--there us just too much detail and the asterisk it too small. Even on a desktop monitor we cannot tell what the icon is, but on a high resolution laptop, you need a magnifying glass. Please simplify the icons and make to color coded portion most of the icon.

                              You should be able to create a conditional access rule that only the computers with the latest Windows 10 build can access corporate resources.

                              The latest version is required because it might introduce new security features or some other functionality.

                                When updating a package over "Update distribution point" we always have to click outside of the section/folder in order to get an updated status of the package we are updating. It would be nice to have it automatically refreshed only for that particular software.

                                • Display Security Scopes and Collections columns by default under Administrative Users

                                  Many organizations struggle a lot with the concepts in Role Based Administration. One of the things I see that helps them immensely to see how they've misapplied security is to simply turn on the Scopes and Collections column views under Administrative Users. While the Roles are shown by default, without the Scopes and Collections, there isn't enough context for them to understand what is actually set up.

                                  Please display the Security Scopes and Collections columns by default under the Administrative Users view in the ConfigMgr console. This will help people understand RBA at a glance much more easily.

                                  Thanks forā€¦

                                  • Make Progress Status messages descriptive

                                    The Create Task Sequence Media Wizard reports very basic information during the creation, eg. Processsing 0% or 14 % etc but what is it progressing? As you cannot see this information and the processing status resets to 0% multiple times.

                                    Would be helpful to know what it is doing!

                                      It should be possible that extensions for Windows Intune can be installed without adminrights while opening the Admin Console after the Extension is activated.
