  1. Role-Based Administration - Document what permissions control... or at least start!

    The Role-Based Administration documentation does not describe what the individual permissions actually control, and they are not self explanatory. For example, under Collection, you see several different 'modify' permissions and it isn't clear what they each control:

    -Modify
    -Modify Client Status Alert
    -Modify Collection Setting
    -Modify Folder
    -Modify Resource

    Please provide even a basic amount of information about what they control in the console. This will help prevent us silly sysadmins from just giving people tons of permissions so we don't have to reverse engineer what each of the settings does in order to let people do just what they…

  2. Allow copying text from deployment monitoring "More details" window

    The "More Details" right-click function in the Asset Details view under each monitored deployment currently does not allow you to highlight and copy any of the text. This might sometimes be handy while sending deployment information to colleagues or building hand-made lists of computers with a specific error status, etc.

  3. Enable deadline randomization for Applications and Packages in addition to software updates

    Deadline randomization is currently in place for software updates only. We were hoping that would expand to both applications and packages as well. This would reduce the demand for applications and package installations in a shared environment (virtual). We currently have this available with software updates. We'd like to see the scope expanded to include package and applications.

  4. Support Evaluation of "On Battery" for Most Client Activities

    To reduce potential for failures due to low battery situations and to minimize the ConfigMgr client's impact to system battery life, introduce a check for certain client actions to allow them to be delayed or bypassed when the system is found to be running on battery or running critically low on battery:
    + Software distribution
    + Compliance settings
    + Inventory
    + Anti-malware scans

  5. Make Cloud Distribution Point fully functional

    Enable appropriate distribution point functions on Cloud DPs like Group Relationships, Content, Boundary Groups, Schedule, Pull Distribution Point, and Rate Limits.

    of course, PXE and Multicast would not be appropriate Cloud DP functions.

  6. delete each collection member from the database

    The "Delete each collection member from the database" tick box clickable field extends to immediately above the "OK" button, making it extremely easy to select on accident. The field should only exist within the space of the box itself, or slightly outside of it.

  7. WinPE PeerCaching - Applications

    Add the ability to cache Applications via WinPE PeerCaching. This would allow admins to fully pre-populate a location with content: This would be huge, and a game changer for a lot of organizations that don't own a 3rd party solution.

    The WinPE PeerCaching, as it is now, works great, for the content it can do. Adding Applications would make this a complete solution, instead of a stop gap to a 3rd party solution.

  8. Set Maximum Run Time on Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 > 10 minutes

    Cumulative Updates for Windows Server 2016 sync with a maximum run time of 10 minutes every month. The same cumulative update for Windows 10 1607 is set to 60 minutes.

    Could you set the Server 2016 to 60 minutes instead of 10? This update never completes in less that 30 or 45 minutes.

  9. Software Center: Provide a console setting to remove the "Application Catalog" link from Software Center

    Admins should be able to disable or remove the link to Application Catalog, from an end user viewpoint, we are not using the App Catalog, just Software Center. Since we’re using a 3rd party Shopping instance as well, it would be good to have a configurable option to hide Application Catalogue.

  12. Create Office 365 Client Installer from Dashboard crashes console in 1710 / gdiplus.dll

  13. Run PowerShell Command in Task Sequence

    In the a Task Sequence you have the option to 'Run PowerShell Script' where you have to specify a package \ script name etc. Could we have 'Run PowerShell Command' this saves having to download the script and run it. For example at the moment I 'Run Command Line' and use 'powershell -command start-sleep 300'. It would be great if we could just run native powershell commands.

  14. Allow Retry After Early Failures in OSD Instead of Angry Reboot

    There are a lot of common failures right at the beginning of the task sequence that cause a lot of anger. Can we please allow a retry for these three common scenarios that happen right at the start?

    No Network Connection
    - If you hit “Next” before the network has started… or before your network cable was plugged in, it should give you an error that you can retry after the network situation is fixed.

    No Task Sequence Found
    - This often comes up because there really is no task sequence targeting the device, even though you thought it should…

    Thanks for all the feedback, updating to completed. SCCM 1702 is now available, see here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1702 for more details. Check the section “Return to previous page when a task sequence fails”

  15. configuration manager returned a large number of results - UI request

    This is really a pet peeve but bear with me. When I want to search Devices within Assets and Compliance section of the Admin console, a message appears that says "Configuration manager returned a large number of results. You can narrow your results by using search. Or, click here to view a maximum of 100000 results." The functionality of this is great, however the placement of it is EXACTLY where the search box was right before it appeared. More times than not, I'll try to click in the search box and end up clicking on this message instead and the…

  16. Integrate Android for Work in SCCM/Intune Hybrid

    Android for Work has been actively integrated in to the web Intune Portal, I have not heard when this would make its way to the Hybrid SCCM instance so wanted to push this to uservoice since this will be very helpful in all with hybrid deployments. We are primarily iOS but having this functionality could allow companies to standardize on iOS or android devices with OS 6.0 or higher to support the work profile. Utilizing Intune with SCCM allows infinite customizability and the use of dynamically changing queries, along with multiple domains in my environment is critical in order for…

  17. New Software Center for 1706 - Options Tab -> Power Management settings do not stay ticked

    In several 1706 environments, when users are given the option to override their power management plans, the New Software Center does not reflect them "ticking" that box once the software center is closed and re-opened. All the other settings seem to "stick". My guess is that the "Apply" button was taken away on purpose (was there in 1702) and this may have been overlooked. Please take a look and provide any information on a fix for this functionality.

  18. Offline Servicing - Select Indexes to Update

    At the moment, when you do Offline Image Servicing on a Server WIM - it applies it to all image indexes (Standard, Standard Core, Datacenter, Datacenter Core, etc...)

    Can we have an option to select which index (or indexes) we would like to service?

    If someone only deploys Standard (gui) and never Datancentre, they don't really need to patch it..

    It would also save some time

  19. Windows 10 Rollback via SCCM

    The 30 Day Rollback option is available for all windows 10 users, but currently can not be automated using SCCM.

    This should change, as this feature closely integrates with Microsofts testing strategy of using different branches which grow bigger in size as the rollout of a new build progresses.

    When planing to integrate a similar scenario, in our case, we anticipate errors which have not been cought in testing of the previous branch and need to be able to quickly restore operations.

    I am well aware that if all our applications were packaged this would not pose much of a…

  20. RBA Viewer that works with CM CB

    The RBA Viewer that is released in 2015 constantly crashes in my production system. I was able to get it to work in a lab running an older verison of SCCM.
    So far it crashes with CM1606 and 1702

    Can RBA Viewer be updated to support the new permissions that have been introduced over the past 2 years and updated it with every release of CM CB?

    If there are no plans to update rbaviewer can a statement be released that the current version is not supported with CM1606 and beyond?
    Or whatever version you feel is appropriate?
