How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Add a check box to Maintenance Tasks to disable all temporariliy

When doing an upgrade to SCCM, it has been recommended to disable some, or even all of the site maintenance tasks. (per the upgrade checklist) Would be awesome to have a box on the Maintenance Tasks screen to temporarily disable ALL tasks while the upgrade is being performed. (as opposed to manually disabling all of them) An "upgrade/maintenance mode" box essentially!

    Let's take a step back here: why should we have to do this at all during an upgrade? If the docs say this needs to be done the why should we do it manually? Integrate this into the upgrade process and be done with it.

    It's very useful on upgrade time.. hope it ll be live soon

    Probably best as a default-checked box with 'select all' and 'deselect all' options alongside a checkbox list of individual tasks. In the interim there's probably a script for this, although personally I can't find (or apparently even reinstall, despite having the MSI) my SCCM cmdlets after a recent config mgr console upgrade.

    This would be nice, maybe even make it automated as part of an upgrade so we don't have to do anything. The upgrade process itself could temporarily disable the tasks and then re-enable after it is complete.
