  2. Remember selected option for All Subfolders in Search

    There was a uservoice that requested when searching in the console that All Subfolders be automatic. This request is now set to complete as of March 2017 however the functionality is still not automatic and does not remember as you move through the console.

    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8342127-automatically-search-all-sub-nodes

    Having the ability for this to be remembered or the ability to set this as default under search settings would reduce the constant need to select All Subfolders when searching and switching between different views in the console.

  3. 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    It's great that the console now notifies the user when it's out of date, but the process of applying these updates really needs to be streamlined.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.

  4. Improve console communication and security to site server

    To use the console you need to open up the RPC dynamic port range as the SMS provider is using WMI.

    Isn't it time to move to a more secure communication method which allows the reduction in open ports to the site server?

  5. Copy Column Headings When Using Ctrl + C

    Its a fairly basic requirement for Collections and Queries, and as SCCM's data comes from SQL which has a console that allows you to copy and paste query results INCLUDING the column headings, it has to be a simple task surely?

    Whether it is simple or not, copying and pasting data from Collections and particularly Queries is a very frequent task for most admins, and is huge time saver compared to creating Reports.

    So, please can you add this in?

  6. Incorporate VAMT into console

    Being able to right click a device and see and manage key types and activations would be very helpful when rolling out SCCM and KMS into a large existing environment full of OEM editions.

  7. Reporting for viewing Active Console Connections

    In 1602 the v_CMConsoleUsage view was added so Administrators can report Connected Console Information (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgrdogs/2016/09/12/view-connected-configuration-manager-console-information/).

    This view is updated when someone opens the console but there is no record on whether it is still active or when it is closed making the reporting less useful. Another column should be added for ConsoleEndTime that is updated when the console connection is closed.

  8. Manageability of the TPM Chip with ConfigMgr

    The ideal situation, covering multiple different requests here at UV, would be to be capable to manage the TPM (v)Chip during lifetime of an endpoint.
    OSD: For example, clear, enable, initiate, take ownership, Adapt the Physical Presence Interface for the Clear action of the TPM at the beginning of the TS. This would allow to adapt the Preprovisioning BitLocker step to immediately take the advantage of the TPM Chip. If the Physical Presence Interface has been adapted for the clear action, show a message for the user to accept the change, etc.. .Part of Device Health Attestation reporting, report theā€¦

  9. Have Cloud Management Gateway Dashboard

    Add a Dashboard for a better visibility on how many clients are managed by each CMG + bytes downloaded for organizations to know usage statistics for the service and make decisions like add\remove CMGs based on the data

  10. Resultant set of Client Settings should show what policy set the page

    If you use several custom client settings, it can be difficult to piece together which one was controlling the actual resultant settings. Add a column on the right which shows the name and priority of the policy that controlled the page (or all that contributed to it for things that are merged... when you get to doing this for antimalware policies)

  11. Allow the opening of multiple objects and sub object from a single console.

    If I want to open two applications and their correlating Deployment types, I have to open two consoles. Can;t we just allow a single instance to do this?

  12. There is a possibility that SCCM does in Azure Backup.

    With more integrated Azure services within SCCM, you could have a Azure Backup integration, creating your blob, which you can do a local copy (cache) and then send to Azure Backup, the status you can follow in the console of the SCCM and have the option to generate alert via e-mail.
    Of course in addition to the option of Backup is very important to have the option of Restore.

  15. Quick view devices that require an update from the Software Library

    At the moment there is no quick way to see which particular machines require an update. You can run a report from Monitoring, but that means identifying the update then going back to reports and running the appropriate report.

    You can however see the the number of devices that require an update when looking at that particular update. A simple "More Details" button here would be useful which would show the machines that require the update or are compliant etc, without needing to run a report.

    This applies to both Software Updates and Windows 10 Updates for feature updates.

  16. CMPivot Refresh Query

    Add a refresh button for CMPivot queries so you can hit ā€œRefreshā€ or ā€œF5ā€ to get fresh query results.

    If you run a query like ā€œService | where State != ā€˜Runningā€™ | where StartMode == ā€˜Autoā€™ā€ you get results. Say you waited 5 minutes and wanted to run the same query again to see if something changed. If you hit Run Query without changing the Entity, it just shows you your cached query results instead of doing a fresh run of the query. Please invent us a button to get fresh results. :)

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.
