  1. Version number in WQL queries should not be treated as string

    At the moment, version numbers in WMI classes are considered as strings, not [version] like Powershell.

    This makes creating dynamic collection membership, based on WQL queries, harder to do, as a 'lesser than' operator cannot be used to efficiently identify devices with a specific application at a lower version than a newer revision.

    (I.e. 'ProductVersion' property of 'SMSGSystemInstalledSoftware' class, 'Version' property of 'SMSGSystemAddRemovePrograms' class, 'Version' property of 'SMSGSystemAPPVClientApplication' class, etc.)

    Example: Citrix Receiver 4.12 is newer than 4.9. if I were to build a WQL queryā€¦

  2. Better default reports design

    Most of internal reports has quite poor design and usually does not tend to dislike it. They look like ConfigMgr legacy: 8 years lag.

    Why don't we use a team of designers just to make them look modern and stylish?

    Sometimes I find better to use pre-created custom reports for the demos...

  4. Implement Distribution Point Group status Compliance Summarizer

    We have an option to check Distribution point group status, but the compliance is display wrong information.

    For example: In our SCCM, I see that the compliance is 48.2% and the pie chart shows failed and on going distributions but when I look into the distribution point group for details I see nothing in progress and failed and refreshing the group is not making any difference.

    If we can have a DP group compliance summarizer which will check for the latest status and clear out the any pending or old unchanged status.

    Currently there is no option to fix this.

  6. effective permissions

    Provide the ability to see the effective permission of an administrative user in the security node. This can be similar to the effective policies for client settings. The RBA viewer provides the show me information but you are not able to pick an administrative user and see what all their inherited permissions are in the console.

  7. Change the behavior of selecting in a filtered list

    The current behavior of selection in a filtered list in at least the TS step "Auto Apply Drivers" (with limit driver matching) and also the Schedule Updates Wizard (those two places are confirmed the behaviour could be present elsewhere) is counterintuitive and even a little dangerous.

    If you select any of the options there while no filtered, then set a filter that excludes your previously selected option and afterwards clear the filter, the first option becomes unselected. This is even true if selected options were already saved.

    I do not know if this is a bug or a very strangeā€¦

  8. Columns with numbers should sort using natural, not alphanumeric order.

    When sorting by a column with numbers, can you please make the console sort correctly and not just on the first digit? Currently I see 99, 94, 92, 909, 9085, 90, 9, 9, 9, 8852, 8771.......... and that is not very useful.

  9. When retiring an app allow the app to retire associated Apps.

    Currently you can't even retire the dependent app then retire the main app, at least allow the main at to retire with an association to an already retired app.

  10. Reports: Copy Query

    In the Reports area, there is a query area. It would be nice if we could copy a query. We have not found a good way of doing this.

  11. Ability to run scripts from the SCCM server, like a built in Web Service

    Adding the ability to run powershell scripts on a SCCM site server when called from a Task Sequence or Compliance item.

    Some scripts need special rights or modules that are not available to Users or client devices. (ActiveDirectory, ConfigManager actions)

    Being able to add these scripts in the SCCM console and have them ran from a call back from the client or Task Sequence would save running multiple Web Services on the server.

  12. relative time options for scheduled reports

    if you plan a report, e.g. "Antimalware overall status and history", to run every 1st day each month for example, you can only enter fixed dates for the report.
    There should be relative options like "first day of previous month" (see SCOM for good examples)

  13. Add query based parameters for script

    It would be nice to have the option to add some query based parameters for script (WQL or SQL). So values for parameters could be dynamic based on a query and scope of the user who trigger the script.

    i.e. We could have hiding deployments (without any notifications to the end users), then the admin user could select application or updates from the list to enforce deployment.

  14. 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.

  15. Please add the remote device actions to users primary device

    You cannot perform remote device actions on a device from the users primary device screen. To perform a remote device action you need to go to a collection in which the device is. This is problematic when the device isn't easily tied to the user. I ended up using the device ID but that isn't optimal. Why can't we do remote device actions when viewing the primary device for a user?

  16. Duplicate or Copy Report Subscriptions

    It would be a great feature to have the ability to copy or duplicate a report subscription. Often we have to create a new report subscription that matches an existing subscription (for updates compliance) before we are done using the existing subscription.

    Being able to copy a subscription will save a lot of work if the description, notes, schedule are all the same. All you have to do is change the update group in the parameters.

  17. resultant client settings

    add an option for the resultant client settings that are applied, and not what supposed to be applied, like GPO has for group policy resultant. The existing resultant client settings is more like the group policy modeling.

  18. Access user/computer focussed reports from the device/user collections

    If I right click on a computer in a collection there are many contextual items on the menu. It would be useful for us to be able to launch the 'compliance 5 - specific computer' report for that computer directly from the menu. there are other device centric reports focussed on the hostname that could be easily accessible.
    Possibly access the report from the same area as the 'primary user' link in the summary pane.

  19. Granular Client Notification Permissions

    Would it be possible to break out individual permissions for each of the "Client Notifications".

    When enabled, if I right-click a device or collection I get the usual selection of options, "Download computer policy", "Collect Hardware Inventory", etc. Those are fine, but the big one that caries a high degree of risk is "Restart"

    So rather than have a single option in [Security Role] -> [Collection] -> [Notify Resource]

    ...the "Notify Resource" is in it's own permission branch and each notification option can be enabled/disabled for that role.

  20. 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.
