Phase 1 of these feature is in 1602 production

I see that you did it! Now we can run scripts remotely and notification actions list was expanded!
If you guys want some of the right click tools built in directly in to the console. You can check out https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Integration-Kit-d4e32845
I noticed lots of people want the advance collections view. Just grab the files out of this and you can checkout collection membership for the device just buy right click and check in the properties.
It is open source so if you want more functionality just post on github and I will see what I can do to improve it.
As Tony Peters calls out, the 'Show Collections - Advanced' is basically a killer feature. No ConfigMgr admin should be without it.
Beyond that, I would love to see some content routines. For example: redistribute content to failed DPs for either a specific piece of content or globally.
Any update on this?
Tony Peters commented
'Show Collections - Advanced', both Collections and Maintenance Windows. I don't know how any Enterprise SCCM administrator lives without it.

Since we are starting to see some Right Click Tools integrated into the console (Client Notifications), it would be nice to have a Wake-On-Lan option for both a collection and the computer object. SCCM already has WOL capabilities for Deployments but it would be nice to have it integrated as a Right Click Tool. We created our own internal WOL service that we integrated into our SCCM consoles but think others could benefit from this if it was built-in.
Appreciate seeing the client notifications making it in as of 1602. As Ricky points out, the collection membership and the associated data (specifically maintenance windows) would be a great next step. The bulk add to collection being a close second.

What am missing is Show Collections meberships and Maintenance Windows for my servers
I can't see Right click tools built in so far in SCCM console in 1602 / 1606 as well.
Why not my account security is bad?

Ryan's Right Click Tools are very useful in managing a collection of computers and individual systems. It would be nice to have more frequently used right click options available without needing to run another installer. It is a pain when the console has an update and once that is applied, the Right Click Tools addon need to be re-installed.
Qasim Mashwani commented
Integration of the Right Click Tools should be an optional feature in the Admin Console and preferably restricted by policy even if feature is selected as the potential for mass havoc caused by one errant click on certain tools is quite significant.
Michael Chelone commented
What is the Security role to turn these features on and off for my help desk techs?
Phase 3: Profit
Is there any update to Phase 2? I am dying to be able to restart on the fly or schedule restarts on collections.
David Stein commented
"Started"! Heck yeah! Thank you!
Seems like 'right click tools' should have been a part of SCCM years ago. Microsoft is asleep at the wheel. I'd also like to see a separate tool like "SCCM Client Center" so you don't have to wait until you track down the device inside SCCM console till you're able troubleshoot it.
What is Phase 1 ?
