ConfigMgr Web Console
Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.
The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.
With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.
Updating this to planned. For more information, see the sessions at #MSIgnite this week.

Any News ?
Yes like Azure Portal / Device Management / Windows Admin Center. Can make it a light version initially that slowly expands out its features - this way you do not have to have all functionality from day one

Make a thin version of ConfigMgr console (app or web) that a admin can configure with limited options as:
-Pending Reboot status
-Repair / redeploy ConfigMgr client
The options are the basic tasks we have experienced are most used in our environment. For these tasks, the full console is a little too heavy.
Is it possible to make a thin version of the console, or perhaps Web Console for this?
Have attached a pdf from an application we have made inhouse, it gives some ideas about what I´m requesting
We have a global admin base, and making stable provider connections from overseas is not possible.
We brought in a developer and built our own web based SCCM console, but having one in the product would be much better.
I agree with a couple of people here who say it should be an extension for Windows Admin Center.

How'd you even do right click tools with an HTML5? It'd have to execute through the server...
Really good idea.
I would love to see this as a plugin to Honolulu.
It must be made so that it can do multiple domain/multi tenannt scenarios. (NO INTUNE is NOT the answer)

Great idea, especially since the current console is buggy and crashes frequently from my experience.
It would be great !!!
I would be happen with a modern app (appx etc) or some other method to self update without admin rights.
Silas Sulser commented
Cireson already implemented that!

I agree with this! We need web console that not only allows for what's in place now in the thick console but also has MDT integration and can be used to setup machines in MDT/SCCM for OSD bare metal. There are Help Desk/ Service Desk / Desktop Services folks that don't need full access into the SCCM console and only the ability to build machines and push applications. A web interface would give the ability to have things like this without having to train teams on SCCM and the console. I have found unleashing the console on people who have never used it before can be a large learning curve.
The Cireson web portal was mentioned below. So yes there are products out there BUT I did PoC the product and it is limited.
Hopefully the ConFig Mgr team is open to this approach.

Good idea and save time post upgrade to latest CB, as console update is not required.
Melker Johansson commented
Should be a part of Honolulu
All modern systems has Web access without any special tool needed. Looking forward to have it in SCCM
Cireson developed a web portal for SCCM

Need of the time! It will allow an admin to access the portal from a mobile device and be productive from anywhere. Resonates with Microsoft Modern Management story.
Great idea. Don't know why this hasn't been done sooner. The world is moving towards browser based access.

Most of today's front end GUI is HTML5/or compatible (& lightweight) at the least. Why ConfigMgr left alone....great feedback. Look forward to seeing this change!
