How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Automatic notification when the Docs are updated

Trying to keep track of which topics in the Documentation Library have been changed and when is a nightmare.

Provide a notification mechanism such as a RSS feed for updates to the Documentation Library as they occur.

In an ideal world it would be great to be told WHAT the changes were (be good if there was a way of easily snapshotting the article before and after the changes with the changes highlighted), but not sure how easy that is.

There are a few ways to accomplish this. For about the next week or so you can use the “Follow” link at the bottom in the comments section. This functionality goes away shortly when we switch over to GitHub Issues.
As already stated, you can watch the GitHub repository, although this will provide notification of EVERYTHING that happens, which might get a bit noisy.
The recommendation from the core docs team is to use the built-in search, and then the RSS link there. For example, if you want to monitor the Log files article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/hierarchy/log-files), search for the full page title that shows in the browser tab and in the search results (which may be different than what shows at the top of the article). For example, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/search/index?search=%22Log+files+for+troubleshooting+-+Configuration+Manager%22&scope=ConfigMgr. Note this is scoped to ConfigMgr and the title is in quotation marks. There should be only one result. Then click the link for the corresponding RSS feed (far right across from top of search results). For example, https://docs.microsoft.com/api/search/rss?search=%22Log+files+for+troubleshooting+-+Configuration+Manager%22&locale=en-us&$filter=scopes%2Fany(t%3A%20t%20eq%20%27ConfigMgr%27)

You can use this RSS method to monitor a single article, or set of articles based on search criteria.

At this time the docs platform team doesn’t have plans to add a more dedicated follow or notify feature. If you’d like to see something like that, please share your idea with the docs platform team at https://aka.ms/sitefeedback.
