  1. Allow this application to be installed from TS

    To use an app via task sequence, you need to check the "Allow this app to be installed from TS" on the app properties. it would be easy if this setting was automatically set if the app is added to a TS.

    • An automatic clean rollback for software updates deployment when an issue is happen.
    • All client actions from the console (like right click tools).
    • more possibilities from the remote control like files transfer and chat...
    • Approval request by email (submit and receive).
    • Full management for Windows firewall (create protocol, rules, exception ... like from GPO).

    • More reports for Endpoint.
    • USB devices control.
    • More options for software metering and asset intelligence.

    Hi Bechir -
    Thanks for taking the time to post your suggestions, there’s some good stuff in there. Some of it you can already find as existing ideas (like the approval request by email) and others look like new ideas. I’m going to decline this request and ask you to open individual ideas for each of your suggestions. That makes it easier for others to find and vote on individual ideas.

    Thanks again!

  3. Simplify on-prem MDM initial configuration and deployment

    Gerry (MVP) posted a great blog about configuring and deploying on-prem MDM for ConfigMgr 1511. Only problem is it was too long, because too many steps are required. Figure out how to simplify the process. How fast can one get SCCM "Out of the box", and "up and running", and "managing on-prem MDM"?

  4. Mobile Device Data Usage

    I would like the capability to be able to report on data usage on mobile devices managed by SCCM/Intune in a similar way to the Data Usage information available in Windows Mobile 10. Having a configuration option to then set limits on data usage or warn when mobile data is reaching a percentage of allocation and being able to report on devices that have used more than their allocation.
    This would provide the capability to manage costs for company owned devices for mobile data usage.

  6. Schedule wipe/retire

  7. PowerShell in GUI - Remove AllSigned or Digitally Sign the Module

    When running the PowerShell Cmdlets from within the GUI in System Center Configuration Manager it forces a confirm before it allows the Console to run. The problem is simple as the Console is being run with "allsigned" as the executionPolicy but the Module is NOT Digitially signed. Change the launching ExecutionPolicy to Bypass or Digitally Sign the Module (either would resolve the issue)

    Unfortunately there’s not enough actionable information provided here for us at this time.

    All of our PowerShell modules should be signed. You may initially receive a prompt to accept the signer of the modules, but beyond that they should function as expected in AllSigned mode.

    If you’re not seeing this, please let us know the exact error you’re seeing along with the product version you’re using so we can dig deeper into this issue.

    Thanks!

  8. Fallback Mobile Device Management with the Hybrid Solution

    The ability to manage the Mobile devices from both the SCCM and Intune web portal ie.. with both the agent active or using one agent for both the purpose (EX: laptop or windows 10 ),if an user is working from a remote location and occasionally connects to office or VPN n/w ,instead of calling that user for the n/w connectivity to protect from vulnerabilites for SCEP and Windows updates or Applications deployment ... if a dual management is possible then would be an idle job for the administrator and organizations as the security threat has been minimized as the machineā€¦

  9. Add "System OU Name" to get-cmdevice cmdlet

  11. Personal Hotspot iOS prevention - SCCM

    Currently prevention of personal hotspot use in iOS is only a capability through Intune standalone. This setting should be made available in SCCM Hybrid to allow the prevention of hotspot use on ipads and iphones. We are currently having many overage charges from users using this feature and preventing this feature will help save money on these overages.

  13. Remote Device Actions SCCM - Send Sync Request to Multiple Devices at Once (Bulk Sync)

    Currently you are able to click on a single device and one at a time complete a remote device action of send sync request. This can get cumbersome when trying to refresh a whole fleet of devices. I would like the ability to send a remote sync request to multiple devices at once either by collection or by highlighting multiple devices in the console and selecting option.

  14. BIOS to UEFI - Problem Rebooting back into WinPE during task sequence

    If Machine has to reboot from winpe back in winpe after disk is formatted with default EFI partition scheme
    EFI >500 MB partition

    The boot image associated with the TS will be staged on this partition and if uncompressed size of boot image happens to be more that 500 MB , the staging fails.

    SMSTS shows the following error:

  15. Publish ConfigurationManager module to the PowerShell Gallery

    It would be really great if you would start leveraging PowerShell Gallery as a place to publish latest versions of ConfigurationManager module (cmdlet library). Even though the module can't work without the Console, it would still be a lot more handy to rely PowerShell Gallery to make sure I'm running the latest version of cmdlet library.

  16. Add credential parameter for all PowerShell module cmdlets

    Add credential parameter for PowerShell module cmdlets to allow cmdlets to be run from alternate credentials, such as a service account. This would be very useful for passing a credential asset to a runbook in Azure Automation.

  17. Windows Explorer and Notepad improvements.

    I would like to suggest Microsoft the following improvement initiatives regarding the Windows platform:

    1. In Windows Explorer: I suggest updating the "date modified" information of a folder based on the last change performed on its files. For example, if a file is overwritten, deleted, copied-into, or updated, the "date modified" information of that folder should reflect that change.

    2. In Windows Explorer: When copying files from the local hard drive to a removable storage device (e.g. USB memory), the files are not copied with the correct "date modified" information. This happens during summer time for files modified during winter time. Theā€¦

  18. write the Client MP and DP configurations in registry or WMI

    I have multiple MPs and DPs that are assigned to a client.

    From the client (not using the servers or SQL) I cannot find a way to tell what the MPs and DPs are assigned in the Boundaries?

    currently I can pull current management point with the following PowerShell:
    $sms = new-object ā€“comobject ā€œMicrosoft.SMS.Clientā€
    $sms.GetCurrentManagementPoint()

    Can you write them to the registry or WMI?

    maybe something like this ...

    ManagementPoints\MPServer1
    \MPServer2
    \MPServer3
    \MPServer4

    DistributionPoints\DPServer1
    \DPServer2
    \DPServer3
    \DPServer4
    \DPServer5
    \DPServer6

  19. Configuration Client Setting - Turn off Application Website Point

    Since SCCM CB 1806 itĀ“s possible to use Software deployment to user without Application Catalog Website Point.

    In an CAS environment it should be possible to turn off this setting otherwise if one primary server has installed this role, this setting will be setup to AUTOMATICALLY or you can select the server with the role installed.

    This is a problem if you use it in different location with different setup, to turn off brings up more flexibility.

    In my case i must now wait that other regions will remove this role.

  20. Allow multiple languages to be corrected at the same time

    I have been using Word for years to write essays, presentations, etc; and as far as I'm aware, it does not seem to be possible to add multiple languages as the spelling-checker. I find myself, and just like probably many other people, to be writing stuff like taking notes, in two languages sometimes, and everytime I must select the text and put the right language in the spelling checker settings, which takes me useless time and could definitely be improved. Hence, my suggestion is to add some kind of 'multiple language spelling checker' option which would allow us to writeā€¦
