    • Manage Deployment of Console Updates

      I would be good if applying an update to Configuration Manager also either:
      - initiated the creation of an application/collection/deployment to upgrade administrator consoles, or
      - provided the ability for the console to update itself by kicking off a background service to install the update for non-administrator users.

      It's great that the console now notifies the user when it's out of date, but the process of applying these updates really needs to be streamlined. Something similar to automatic client upgrade would be amazing.

      • System Status sort order by icon or status

        When looking System Status> Site Status or Component status you can order by column headers. When clicking on Icon - desired sort order would be red,yellow,green (or opposite) and when clicking on Status then Critical,Warning, OK ( or opposite) .
        At moment it is mixed, ie not in severity order, but more like yellow,green, red.
        If there is long list of rows and it doesnt fit on screen You must click and scroll several times.

            Integrate Annoucement settings to the console like the product Cireson Configuration Manager Ticker app. Send schedule or as soon as possible notification directly for user's display.

            • Add a Favourites feature to the SCCM 2012 Console. Favourites would allow user to "jump to" various points within console.

              Add a Comments field to the device record and allow an admin to update it via the console.

              • Easier navigation between a deployment's properties and status in the admin console

                When I am in the Monitoring Workspace viewing the status of Deployments, I often want to open/edit the properties of a specific deployment. This should be accessible by right clicking the deployment, instead of having to make note of the update group or application being deployed and manually finding it in the software library to get to it's properties.

                The reverse process should also be easier. If I am in the Software Library viewing a software update group or application and select a specific deployment for that application, I should have a right click option for 'view status', which would…

                • have the ability to show the 'security scopes' column everywhere in the console

                  if you have an environment with a deep RBA scoping, it is not Always easy to quickly see which object is secured by which scope in the console as you cannot enable the column 'security scopes' everywhere in the console..
                  please change this, I'm talking about boundary groups, queries, site, DP groups, DP, global conditions, driver packages

                  • Add a GitHub-Style Commit dialog for all changes.

                    The idea around this is to capture "what was changed" for things such as Updating Package/Deployment Type Content, Changing Application Metadata, Changing CI/Baselines.

                    The commit description would then also be added into the Revision History so if you had to roll back (or were nosey and wanted to see what was going on) you could look at the revision notes to see what was changed, and who changed it.

                    The ability to toggle this on/off should be available since not everyone will want this (especially for labs).

                      • SCCM - Better Exchange Connect configuration with Exchange Online

                        A simple Exchange Connector installation for Exchange Online is missing.
                        It should be intuitive and easy like the configuration with the Exchange Server On-premise.

                        • Centralise Console extensions

                          Please have the ability to set a repository for console extensions that the business uses. An admin could deploy the extension to the repo, then all consoles could enable it or keep disabled.

                          The way community extensions get installed/activated may need an overhaul.

                          • Set a Default Security Scope for user

                            It would be nice to be able to assign a default security scope to a user.
                            Ie; if someone creates a package, sccm assigns their set security scope(s) to the package instead of manually setting it.

                                Im often missed the feature to click on a reported value to jump directly to a list or an report.

                                Example: Installation of an Application with 5 Devices failed -> Click on the 5 failed devices will open a list with the 5 specific devices.

                                Example 2: 3 Devices needs an specific Update. Which devices? Click on the number and see the list.

                                • Add ability to move client setting priority to the top

                                  In some environments there are many client settings and there may be a particular setting that I need to be at (nearly) the top of the priority list. I've used a community tool that assists with client setting priority but would like to see, at the least, a button or right click feature to move the setting to the top to reduce the amount of priority button clicks.

                                  • Modify Defaults

                                    Allow a default to be created for each and Every object type in the admin console.

                                    Applications, Packages, etc.. Allow Every possible setting to be pre-configured with the default choices you want by default. Multiple "templates" creatable for the same object type... Default choice would be based upon RBA. or a global choice if present.

                                    • Help me Find Objects that I Can Remove From ConfigMgr

                                      We all have things in ConfigMgr that are no longer used, or seldom used. The admin console should help me find these objects, so that I can clean-up/remove those things that are no longer needed. I'm looking for things like.
                                      - Show me deployments, and their usage on a monthly basis. I'm sure I have optional deployments that are no longer being used - help me find what I can prune.
                                      - Show me packages (including OSD packages), applications, and task sequences that aren't part of an active deployment. Take dependencies into consideration, but help me find those things that…

                                      • An improved console that merged ADUC, GPMC, and SCCM deployments/queries/collections

                                        Imagine a console like ADUC that let you view GPOs and AD objects alongside each other, with contextual color-tinted overlays that help you visualize where items are applied. It should also display SCCM collections, queries, and deployments.

                                        • console default view

                                          allow the console to have a default view per node. if you open the software updates -> all software updates, it takes a while to load. It would be useful to have a default view configured so it would not load what is need needed. Same for assets and compliance -> devices, etc.
