How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Enable a column for primary user!

Enable an option to quickly see the primary user of a device (within the columns on the console) I don't have time to individually click machines or run reports to find the primary user.

You have left! (?) (thinking…)

This is fixed in the just shipped #SCCM 1802 release. For both Primary User, and Logged on user. We still will improve a couple things:
1) it is only in devices views; and we will add it in more views (collections, etc.)
2) We actually think we can do even better than this, and use the SCCM fast channel to show currently logged in now users. If you like this idea, vote here:

    You could use Console Builder "[Configuration Manager Admin Console install directory]\bin\AdminUI.ConsoleBuilder.exe" to change the columns as you see fit.

    agreed it's great that is works at the root device level but would be that much better if it worked under device collections.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Good addition! But yes, please get it working under device collections as well. Thank you!

    Please: three optinal columns in database / devices view - last logged-on user, user by nominated affinity, user by affinity algorithm. Last logged-on user, 'on' by default, the other two as options in the column list?

    Is this in the 1802 technical preview? We are desperately in need of this as we have over 100 devices and managing them is a nightmare.

    Adding Last Logon User column while displaying the All Devices in Console. This will help to reduce admin overhead to run the queries separately. We could copy the listed members from console to excel directly.

    That is fantastic news and will be very much welcomed as it has been a feature view that many CCM Administrators have wanted for a long time.

    now this is marked as planned, will it be in both the web console and hybrid? thanks

  • NM commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is really a good and necessary feature to have. It is tedious to get the information in the current setting.

    x100000 this!

    Madness! this should have been in the SCCM 2012 but nope, not even R2 or even current branch!

    This x10! It's crazy that there's no way to add the primary user as a column when looking at devices in a collection. Luckily we have BigFix in our environment too, which allows me to quickly do this.
