    • Multiple monitor support for Remote Control Viewer

      When the end user has multiple monitors, the view is scaled. This is really frustrating sometimes: you have the choice between a blurry view or scrolling a lot...

      Sure it's possible to detect multiple monitors and being able to switch between them with buttons (like Team Viewer) would be awesome!

      • Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages

        Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages, pretty much like it works for normal packages (applications). This would reduce the number of hardcoded Apply Driver Package in the task sequence.

        • Enable right click WOL a device from inside the console

          Allow the built in use of WOL, and right click to wake up a machine or a collection at anytime. Also fix ConfigMgr's native WOL technology to work on common network infrastructure (no Mac-Flapping.)

          • Prompt users for reboot, but NEVER force it

            The reboot settings only allow for the user to postpone a reboot for up to 24 hours. Why can't we expand that time or just keep reminding them forever until they reboot themselves? The longer that they have been pending a reboot, remind (pester) them more frequently. Or auto reboot if nobody is logged on.

            • Ability to automatically install Windows 10 ADK releases (or rollback or apply hotfix) via Updates and Servicing.

              The windows 10 adk has changed a few times since the original release of Windows 10, there have been two major releases and one hotfix to fix issues with the second release, as a consequence of that many people got jittery about upgrading to ADK 10 1511.

              How are we going to deal with this in a good way, a really good way. Prior to this we didn't have to upgrade our boot images every 6 months or so.

              Here's the suggestion:-

              • Force Reinstall of Application

                Many customers want to be able to force a reinstallation of an application. this deployment should ignore all detection rules and just install the application again.
                At the moment this is not possible.

                  Internet based remote control with options such as file transfer and reboot. This could be accomplished using a reverse connection from a client to a new site role hosted in the DMZ.

                  • RBA on the Folder level

                    Currently Administrators have the ability to set Role Based Access to Collections but we do not have the ability to block access to specific folders. Currently in my environment we have many different departmental administrators who need to manage only their machines and their collections. each time we add collections we then need to grant them access. if the Role Based Administration gave the ability to grant access on the folder level it would reduce the complexity for area's that have a setup similar to mine.

                    I have attached a screenshot of how my setup looks.

                      • Allow custom icons for Task Sequences and Packages/Programs in Software Center.

                        Allow custom icons for Task Sequences and Packages/Programs in Software Center.

                        Currently the icons are all a default icon, which can be confusing for end users if there are multiple deployed to a workstation.

                          • Bootimage download with HTTP instead of TFTP

                            Downloading the boot image with TFTP is slow and download may fail within slow or unreliable networks.
                            Downloading with HTTP or iSCSI will increase the speed dramatically and the stability is improved also.
                            With iPXE this technology is implemented and works fine.
                            My idea is to implement the HTTP download with SCCM.
                            This would be a great enhancement to performance and stability in the OS deployment.

                              • A Customizable Reboot/Postpone Prompt for Application and Software Updates Deployments

                                Basically would like something similar to the Windows Updates Reboot/Postpone nag prompt except with the ability to customize the notification text as applicable to the deployment.

                                For example:, as a sub-setting of the deployment type for the application you have the option to enable the reboot/postpone prompt and customize the notification text of the dialog box.

                                If the user that receives the prompt, postpones they will be re-prompted at the end of the postponement period until they either reboot or shutdown the system. (basically exactly the same behavior as the Windows Updates reboot/postpone prompt).

                                  • Support OSD over Wireless

                                    As more and more devices are shipping without wired network adapters, and more business areas are going "wireless only," the traditional ability to reimage a device in place is getting scarce. This is especially true in primary and secondary education institutions.

                                    Please provide support for adding Wireless drivers to WinPE, and the ability to provision wireless network profiles for the WinPE phase of the task sequence to enable imaging over wireless network connections.

                                      Would be nice if the application approval request feature had built-in support for emailing.

                                      • Integrate MDT by default

                                        Instead of having us integrate MDT, why not just include the scripts in a new SCCM install by default?

                                        • Complete Group Policy Integration

                                          Configuration Manager should be able to configure all aspects of a workstation that can be done using other Microsoft tools. Some group policy items already exist such as folder redirection and Firewall Policies. It would be great if Firewall could be expanded to include creation of firewall exceptions. It would also be great if we could configure all group policies from within SCCM perhaps using compliance settings.
