  1. SCCM updates: User Experience - Reboot notifications

    Here is the User experience for the update process as I understand it:

    1. System tray balloon appears saying 'software changes are required'

    2. System tray balloon appears saying 'downloading and installing software'

    3. System tray balloon appears saying 'Restart required: Recently installed updates require your machine to be restarted'

    4. *It is here I would like the larger temporary notification reboot window to appear but it doesn't.

    5. Permanent notification reboot window appears and stays on the screen

    I would like option 4 to be possible. Without this it seems quite easy for users to miss seeing the balloon…

  3. Option to uninstall an application when a user or device falls out of scope of the collection

    This is a buggy, Would we like the option to have ' Uninstall Application when Resource falls out of scope of this collection' when an application is deployed to a collection, this would save us having to create 2 collections ( install and uninstall) and to deployments. This would save SO much time and reduce the complicity of application management.

  4. SCCM Report - Easy way to create Report & Dashboard

    Not really easy to create some SCCM report or Dashboard if your're not a SQL DBA .. even with Report Builder.
    Could be awesome to have a new tool where Reports or Dashbaord could be created easily whithout searching which SQL views I need ..ect ... Like some others concurrent application give.

    This can be done today w/ #SCCM 1802 (and previous versions too). I will mark started… and watch comments for why this doesn’t just work… before I mark this straight up completed…

    Steps:
    1) On the CAS (or standalone primary), go to Administration → Hierarchy Configuration → Discovery methods
    2) right click on Active Directory System Discovery and bring up the Properties form. Active Directory Attributes tab, and then click on Custom. In the form that appears, type the name of the attribute. Click OK, and make sure you have added it as an attribute to discover. Run discovery after exiting properties form.
    3) Now when you go to the Devices view and right click on a device and go to its Properties form, you will see the new attribute showing up there.

  7. Windows 10 Servicing Dashboard: Make it clickable

    When I go to the Windows 10 Servicing Dashboard, I got a nice PieChart of the Windows 10 Clients and their Version.
    But when I click on the PieChart, nothing happens. It would be great to have the same experience on this Dashboard like on the SCEP Dashboards.
    That means, if I click on the PieChart one of the Windows 10 Version, a new collection would be opened, with the corresponding Devices.

  9. Create an SCCM Community Catalog Feature

    Creating SCCM Collection Queries is an art, and like most art, some of us are more suited to stick-figures while others produce beautiful creations worthy of a place in the Louvre, featuring graceful sub-queries, artful tabbing and good code practices.

    When creating a collection, it would be helpful to have an optional 'Community Collection Catalogue' to choose from, which could have a user-voice style 'Most useful' collections list.

    Users could create collections here, possibly even having a community 'wish-list' area for those without skills to request from those who would like to share.

    Contributions in the community catalog could be…

  10. Improved automation and extensibility by exposing Configuration Manager functionality through a REST web API

    Exposing Configuration Manager functionality through RESTful web API's would open up a whole new world for interacting with ConfigMgr.
    E.g. a web Admin console and easier integration with Service Management Automation (SMA).
    It should also be easier for 3rd party vendors to create new web based solutions for say an self-service portal or a Windows App for tracking an OS or application deployment on a mobile device or phone.
    Personally I would really like any easier way to interact with ConfigMgr. when running in Windows PE (OS Deployment) or a web portal for non-admins to provision new or existing machine…

  11. add a powershell possibility to add requirements to a deploymenttype of an application

    At the moment it is not easy to add requirements to an application deploymenttype with PowerShell. I think many of us would benefit if this would be simplified.

  12. Need support for Option 82 in PXE DHCP handshake as network tenant based on BGP/MPLS needs it for forwarding to DHCP Client.

    In order to avoid using distributed PXE Servers a support of the Option on PXE DHCP Handshake would make proper inter tenant forwarding possible.

  14. Quick view devices that require an update from the Software Library

    At the moment there is no quick way to see which particular machines require an update. You can run a report from Monitoring, but that means identifying the update then going back to reports and running the appropriate report.

    You can however see the the number of devices that require an update when looking at that particular update. A simple "More Details" button here would be useful which would show the machines that require the update or are compliant etc, without needing to run a report.

    This applies to both Software Updates and Windows 10 Updates for feature updates.

  15. Run Scripts: Need cmdlets to support feature

    Create cmdlets for the new in console Powershell scripts. Some good ones would be new Script Deployment and get script results.

    EX:
    New-CMPSScriptDeployment -Name "Script Name" -CollectionName "Collection Name"

  18. Filter for Datetime "between" for Support Center Logfile Viewer

    I would be great to have a between Filter for Datetime in the Support Center Logfile Viewer.

  19. Folder Redirection Improvements to Permit OneDrive

    Currently the folder redirection feature in SCCM doesn't take an environmental variable as a good path; it requires \\SERVER\SHARE.

    With OneDrive being common place in Office 365, please allow us to enter a command such as:

    %userprofile%\<SyncFolder>

    where Sync folder is the name of your organization's onedrive folder.

    as documented by the Office team.

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/redirect-known-folders-to-onedrive-for-business-e1b3963c-7c6c-4694-9f2f-fb8005d9ef12

    So that we can use SCCM to manage this.

    Thanks! :)

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestion, updating status to started.

    We had the same thoughts, we’ve added the percentage complete to the progress UI. Our recent 1903 Technical Preview has this change.

    See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/get-started/2019/technical-preview-1903
    The progress UI change isn’t called out in the documentation but there’s info. there for how to download the tech preview builds.
