  1. 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.

  2. Allow "shortcuts" on the UI

    There are reports, queries and I perform frequently on the console. I'd like to see a way to "program" these into a shortcut icon on the top of the UI window so I could go to them quickly.

  3. Add direct link to Logs file in Ribbons bar

    Add in the Ribbon toolbar, a direct access to the log (opening it through cmtrace).
    For example, when doing a check for updates in "Updates and Servicing", in the ribbon next to "Client update options" icon, we can add an icon to open the proper "dmpdownloader"log file !!
    So, we don't have to remember all logs or bing internet to find the right log ... we would gain a lot of time and be sure that everything is working fine !!

  4. Maximized SCCM console breaks Windows 10 taskbar autohide

    Currently, if you auto hide the taskbar in Windows 10, you cannot show the taskbar if the SCCM console is maximized. I have to make my console close to maximized without actually maximizing it.

  5. Auto upgrade console

    it would be good if there is an option to auto upgrade a console if it is not updated after x number of open/days (like with the auto client upgrade)

  6. Add export feature to Monitoring/Queries

    Currently the only way to export data from any query built under the Monitoring/Overview/Queries location is to highlight, copy and paste. This seems rather ridiculous considering todays technology. I believe that an export feature should be added so the data can be retrieved from these queries easily, and to any number of outputs such as Excel, PDF, etc., rather than having to copy and paste especially when the output is several thousand rows long.

  7. clone deployments

    Allow cloning of deployments from one application to another (e.g. complicated set of deployments on application A, copy and paste them to application B to reduce the amount of clicks required to perform the task)

  8. Within the SCCM console, allow multi-select for adding columns to the view with single right-click

    Currently within the SCCM console, to add columns you would right click on the column headings and select additional columns to add. Selecting one heading returns you back to the view. Adding additional heading requires additional right-click and selections.

    Would be nice to be able to select multiple column headings in a single right-click.

  9. objects

    Built in SCCM tools to show what collections a machine is in, connect to the root of C:\ etc. Basically like the 3rd party tools that are out there.

  10. Allow search for multiple items at once

    Allow for searching for multiple items at once in the console search. Example - Add multiple package IDs to the search PR100158, PR1001CD for example. Useful when trying to re-distribute multiple content, search for related items such as dependencies, pre-reqs etc.

  11. Make all disabled text controls uneditable instead

    Please make all disabled text controls uneditable instead. This allows for copy/paste for a value that is not changeable but it can still be copied and pasted.

  12. Pop outs in the console

    The console is not very multi-monitor friendly. There are many times where I have to keep switching between the monitoring tab and one of the other tabs to troubleshoot problems. It would be nice if we could pop out certain parts of the console into new windows. It would be nice if we could do this to every node, but just doing it to the five tabs (Tools also) would be great. I wouldn't have to have so many copies of the console open to get the job done.

  13. Add resources dialog not accepting 'Enter'

    If you like to add a resource to a collection by right clicking on it and starting the 'Add Resource'-Dialog, you have to click the search button by mouse or using tab after enter a search string. Perhaps it will be better to enable pressing the enter button to search for clients.

  15. User Voice Console Integration

    The ConfigMgr PG encourages users to share ideas and concerns via user voice. It would be helpful to have the user voice portal linked in the ConfigMgr console in a context sensitive way so that at any node a User Voice submission can be made and appropriate metadata from the console (location, details) shared (as an option) to help describe the particular submission (where applicable)

  16. real-time

    Display real-time installation status on a per machine or per collection basis within the SCCM console. For instance, if installing 20 software updates to a single client, one has to log into the client, launch Software Center, and view the installation status for each update. This status could be installing, waiting to install, reboot required, etc. Rolling this up into the console to say installing 1 of 20, 5% complete, installing application X, 25% complete, running task sequence step 4 of 10, 40% complete, rebooting, back online, etc. would be valuable on a per server or per collection basis.

  17. Give us the option of integrating active directory and and sccm console capabilities.

    In many environments there are very few tech staff members involved in managing everything. I would like to see us have the ability to create a custom mmc or utilize a single console which can manage AD users and computers and SCCM. We should be able to then move objects about the directory or access SCCM data and actions within the AD console. I would like to be able to right-click a computer object in the AD console and get SCCM options such as resource explorer, inventory, reporting, remote control, add to collection, what collections is this machine a memberā€¦

  18. Combine the Content Status pane tabs into one table

    Find a way to combine the tabs for Success, In Progress, Error and Unknown into a single table with the same information that makes getting an overview of Content Status more efficient.

  19. Align Verbage in Software Metering with verbage on file details

    When creating a new software metering rule, the console asks for the file version of the file. However, what is really required is the product version of the file. Unfortunately, these are not always equal as some vendors have different values between the two fields. When this occurs and time passes by and you put the file version, you have no metering data.

  20. Improve package and task sequence export to include deployment information

    We often export packages from QA to production, but the export does not include the deployments. Also, collections are not included so we have to 1. export collections, 2. Export TS or package, 3. Manually recreate the deployments.
