How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Remove from Collection / Move to Collection in OSD

Sometimes it might be handy to remove a computer from the OSD collection as a final step during the task sequence. Or additionally add the computer to additional collection(s) for for example extra software deployment or another task sequence.
Now scripts need to be created therefore and in my experience this doesn't always work well.
A predefined step where the collectionname or collectionID needs to be added to add (or remove) the computer to (or from) would be much appreciated.

        Yes please! This is a pain in the but for years and years. It would be so much nicer to have a default action for adding and removing the device to a collection.

        This would be excellent - although it would be great if you could select a whole tree of folders too. For example, we have numerous collections for additional applications which wouldn't be installed on a default build and need to be requested - if we could remove any machines which are reimaged from these collections, it would be a massive time saver. Writing scripts and manually amending collection IDs each time we need to update this is a nightmare to manage - some kind of SCCM GUI would be much easier!

        We would like to see a built-in way to remove a computer from the collection when the task sequence is done running.

        When selected, add a check box to let user select which collection(s) to remove the computer from.

        Currently the only way to do this is with Powershell/VB (i think) This works but is messy in our view. We try to get away from scripts whenever we can.
