Rework the Asset Message Pane
Especially when I am testing a Task Sequence Deployment, I like to check the status messages that the SCCM Site receives from the clients.
Much easier to see steps and associated exit codes than waiting for the build to finish and trawling the log file.
Monitoring>Deployments>(Deployment)>In Progress>(Machine)>More Details> Status
The only problem with it, is that the actual dialog box that pops up has no window controls, so you have to drag the edges to read the info, and more often than not when you hover over the message so you can read it, it closes after a couple of seconds and you have to exit the cell and reenter.
I agree. To constantly have to drag the window to the top of the screen to maximize it is boring. Especially since you have to close the dialog to refresh the contents. Please add window controls.
Please also add refresh capability to the Status tab. There is no refresh button and F5 doesn't refresh the status messages either so if there is a way to refresh the contents without closing the window and opening it again, then I don't know how to do it.
Of course, opening the window again causes the window to be very small again so I have to maximize it again every time. Very annoying during testing and debugging.

Totally agree, seems the easiest place to get feedback on how a machine is progressing and the window doesn't save your settings and always reverts to a tiny unusable size...
