Console should remember state and settings
Can be frustrating, SCCM console, keeps resetting to default, every time you exit. The odd occasion it will retain settings. IE: folder options, and settings. Would be nice if we could save these to a personal default, so it retains settings.
If somebody can, please change title to "Remember search context". My first post...
I would like the possibility to remember the search context when returning to an area in the console.
For example, I search for a device, then go to applications to check something, when I return to devices I need to search for the device again.
I often open 2 console instances to get around this!
...or be able to have the console save/remember ALL your deployments until you remove them from the 'Deployments' group from the 'Monitoring' view.

+1. Being able to define multiple views and switch between them like on a SharePoint list/doc library would be fantastic.

The "all subfolders" option not showing up is if you change to a different folder and click on the "search" bar too fast. you have to click off, then back on and wait until the loading bar finishes. But yes, I totally agree this needs to be (re?)implemented.
I agree with everybody's comments, especially when RDP'ing. Very very frustrating now we are mostly 'working from home'.
Please save custom columns setup for all views when updating System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
Currently, it's back to default columns setup in all views after each update and it's annoying to setup this again after every update.
+1 on all of this. Particularly weird via RDP...

Using SCCM console across different domains/machines, profile not roaming anywhere.
So, also need easy export of settings so I can import them across all instances, and re-import after upgrades.

Seriously, I'm also very frustrated that I have to adjust columns every time the client gets closed.
1) Just get general columns adjustments working.
2) Get per collection columns adjustments working.

Would be nice if column selection was sticky. I always want to see the co-managed and OS build columns as they are relevant to current projects. I have to select them every time I launch the console.

Make Search Subfolders a default option in applications.
We have over a thousand applications and more than 20 subfolders, we always have to go check the "all subfoldes" under search, and it really is a hassle. and one out of 5 times, the "search" tile, is not present, for some reason, this issue is also seen on our other two environments.
This is very frustating. If the console runs behind a RDP session and it disconnects, settings gets back to default. Please fix this.

Seriously, this is such a pain.
There should be a way to set a default, or change the default columns in each respective node of SCCM console. Software Updates, Devices, Device Collections, etc.

each time i go to a window (i.e. updates and servicing) i find the need to reset the column sizes and search order. Please remember these
Having upgraded easily the last 6-8 versions of SCCM CB, I find it VERY annoying that each time my customized layout with columns is getting reset with every console upgrade. It would be great if all user settings on the console would be retained during an upgrade to avoid having to go thru the same customization steps.

Oh yes, that would be great. Currently the most time consuming part when creating an application is replacing the system defaults with our defaults. It would be good if you could use references to fields like "product name" or "version".
- The standard installation command for MSIs gets standardised logging settings (/l*v \Logs\<Product>_<Version>.log)
- The maximum runtime gets set to 15 minutes (because in 99% of our cases the installation has failed if it's been going for 15 minutes, so there's no sense in making the user wait for another 1:45 h to get an error message)
- MSIs have no uninstall content
- Software get installed per System
Automatically save columns and width layouts in the console.
Whenever a new software update group is created via an automatic deployment rule, my preferred columns are not there. It is a pain to have to re-add them and put them in the correct order.
