    • 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.

      • when double clicking on task sequence open edit page rather then properties

        99% of the time when we look at Task sequences we are wanting to edit the steps, not properties. can the default double click on a task sequence be changed from opening the Properties tab to open the Edit Steps page?

        • When a console crashes and you are editing a task sequence, allow sedo unlock if user name matches yours

          It happened to me yesterday with SCCM 1602 CB, I was editing two task sequences at the same time, trying to copy a section from one into the other when the console crashed. I needed the work done and this didn't help as as soon as I started the console again I got the familiar message shown below. The problem is you have to wait 30 minutes for the sedo lock to be removed or use PowerShell cmdlets to try and remove the lock.

          I don't think that is necessary at all as there is already a retry button onā€¦

          • Create an SCCM Community Catalog Feature

            Creating SCCM Collection Queries is an art, and like most art, some of us are more suited to stick-figures while others produce beautiful creations worthy of a place in the Louvre, featuring graceful sub-queries, artful tabbing and good code practices.

            When creating a collection, it would be helpful to have an optional 'Community Collection Catalogue' to choose from, which could have a user-voice style 'Most useful' collections list.

            Users could create collections here, possibly even having a community 'wish-list' area for those without skills to request from those who would like to share.

            Contributions in the community catalog could beā€¦

            • Active Admin Consoles

              I would like to send a message to all users who have the admin console open. Just a pop-up that warns them of a reboot, or if I need to send out a custom message to all active sessions.

              I would like to also be able to see on the Administrations overview page how many Admin Consoles are opened up and connected to the site, and the user name. At the CAS level see all sessions if their are multiple primary servers.

                • Status Messages in the SCCM Console

                  Status messages are amazingly helpful in the SCCM console, but difficult to get to. For instance, whoever wrote the status messages for Task Sequence deployments did an amazing job, yet I cannot access these without making a custom query! This is an amazing troubleshooting tool that is hidden from the average user.

                  I'd like to get access to status messages from the object that makes the status message. For instance, if I right click on a task sequence deployment, I want to be able to view all status messages associated with that object. If I right click on a distributionā€¦

                  • SCCM Wizards to provide Associated Log file Details - Similar to SCCM Update Monitor Wizard

                    How about providing associated log file details at the end of the summary / completion page of all SCCM Wizards to help SCCM admins. I think it would be helpful. What you think?

                    For example if you are creating a SUP role -> Add Site System Roles Wizard -> Completion page will have the log file name -> SUpsetup.log

                    Do you love SCCM updates and servicing monitoring log file details?

                    • Create a node in the console with favorite action

                      It's possible to create a new node in the console with favorite actions.

                      Example:
                      Favorite\Frequent Action 1 (Device collection)
                      Favorite\Frequent Action 2 (Monitoring content)
                      Favorite\Frequent Action 3 (Application Deployment)

                      If you want to add any action in the console to favorite Node, just right click on the action and select add to favorite actions...

                        • SCCM Console, save your prefered defaults.

                          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.

                          • Ability to enable/disable any deployment (like you can with software update deployments)

                            You should be able to enable or disable any deployment (for applications, packages, software updates, etc) by right-clicking and selecting enable or disable.
                            Currently to disable an application deployment you either have to delete the deployment or retire the application and for packages you need to disable the program.
                            Software update deployments already have this feature.
                            You should also be able to enable/disable a deployment from the Monitoring workspace.

                            • Client Settings - Computer Restart - Allow longer than 1440 minutes, show friendly time

                              Currently, the maximum an administrator can give users to reboot their systems is 1440 minutes (24 hours). Please let us specify up to 7 days. The goal of the delay is to allow a reasonable amount of time for an end user to save their work and reboot without losing anything. The 24 hour limit means that if a user is gone for a day, there is a strong chance they could lose their work. Allowing up to 7 days seems like a better compromise between end user control and respecting admin intent/organizational need.

                                • Adjustable Window Sizes within Admin Console

                                  It would be nice to have the ability to adjust window sizes within the console. As an example, the Membership rule window in the collection properties only has enough room to show 2 lines. Being able to maximize or edit to a custom size and have the console remember these sizes would be great.

                                  This could be incorporated into the fixes that are being introduced with the High DPI resolutions.

                                    Doing this everywhere in the console would be expensive/difficult. Rather than wait to make any improvement until the time we can fix it all… I’m curious what the top 10 most important places to fix are. I’m thinking we fix those first, and then go from there.

                                  • Customizing Software Update Dashboard

                                    Please provide the ability to customize the Software Update Dashboard, such as the ability to exclude updates or update categories from it.

                                    It is a great dashboard to look at to have a quick glance into security compliance, however in its current state, it is not really useful.

                                    For example, the top 10 updates listed under "Devices Missing Updates" are either preview updates or multiple versions of the malicious software removal tool, neither of which we deploy, giving the dashboard a skewed perspective into security compliance.

                                    Thank you.

                                    • Fix the text in the title bar of the Admin Console to be correctly aligned with the top of the window when maximised

                                      Currently when the Admin Console is maximised some of the text in the title bar is not aligned correctly, it is set too high and is cut off. It displays correctly when the window is not maximised. See attached screenshots for example of what I mean.

                                      This is in 1706, but it has been like this for multiple versions now.

                                      It's only a minor cosmetic thing, but it's quite distracting.

                                      • configuration manager returned a large number of results - UI request

                                        This is really a pet peeve but bear with me. When I want to search Devices within Assets and Compliance section of the Admin console, a message appears that says "Configuration manager returned a large number of results. You can narrow your results by using search. Or, click here to view a maximum of 100000 results." The functionality of this is great, however the placement of it is EXACTLY where the search box was right before it appeared. More times than not, I'll try to click in the search box and end up clicking on this message instead and theā€¦

                                        • Skype for Business integration to ConfigMgr console

                                          Show Skype for Business status of computer's primary user within ConfigMgr admin console. Only show the online status if the admin console compyuter has SfB installed. Also, make this optional.

                                          Additionally add an option to start SfB chat with the user by right-clicking the computer/user from admin console.

                                          Skype for Business is a great way to provide support to users and you can share the screen even with computers on internet.
