How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Access log files from Console

Make the log files directly accessible via the console rather than digging around in the file system trying to remember which file holds which logs and ideally make them accessible from a context menu in the relevant areas.

    But that isn´t very handy. CMPivot can only run on Collections. would be easier to select a computer object, rightclick and "open logs"...

    Provide a solution to view the logfiles from a remote client. Maybe create a node in the resource explorer, so that you can choose between the logfiles on the client. This would be very helpful when you are debugging deployments etc.

    I would like to see this capability for inaccessible systems as well. For example, create a Client Policy for the next time the system is online (needs to work for Workgroup Systems also) to have the ConfigMgr Agent on the client compress and copy all log files up to the Site Server (Log File Location specified in Client Settings). This allows you to collect log files from any managed systems regardless of your individual permissions to the system itself since it leverages the ccmexec process for access.
