  1. Update SCEP import to handle JSON

    The current SCEP import only handles XML feeds for import through the SCCM console. XML is no longer supported and is replaced by JSON, can we please have the import updated to handle JSON instead?

  2. 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 wouldā€¦

  3. Remove from Collections

    From the "Collections" tab available when you select a device, it would be great to be able to right-click any of the collections the device is a member of and be able to "Remove from Collection".

  4. Windows Defender ATP Agent Onboarding State should include all supported ATP OS

    In the Devices view, ATP onboarding state is only reported for Windows 10 devices. Other OS have a blank state.

    Currently (Oct-Nov 2018) working on an ATP trial with a customer who has +90% Windows 7 workstations. Support for Windows versions previous to Windows 10 is currently a preview feature for ATP. Still, having the ATP onboarding state and related info for Windows pre-10, would provide for a much nicer overview. The customer doesn't want to hear to upgrade to Windows 10 all the time.

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  8. Represent Microsoft Connected Cache Server as Delivery Optimization

    If clients utilize the Microsoft Connected Cache server (formally DOINC), have the client data sources reflect Delivery Optimization as the sources.

  9. 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.

    It would be good to have the ability to store CMPivot queries in the console for others to use and for future administrator use.

  11. 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.

  12. Add new Device tab with custom properties (Variables)

    When selecting one or multiple devices in the console, it would be very helpful to have an additional tab at the bottom (next to "Summary", "Client Settings", "Collections", etc.) with "Custom Properties" where console users can select from predefined, custom properties such as "Language", "Company", "OS", Device Type", "Deployment Ring" or any other properties that are relevant for a company.
    These properties should then be available as variables during OSD and during normal task sequences.
    Admins should be able to predefine and customize the available properties depending on the needs of the company. There should be a way to createā€¦

  13. Pin certain collections, deployments, SUG to console as node

    There is allready the functionallity to pin a certain collection as a node to the console under the node "Devices" by double-clicking this collection.

    It would be very helpful to pin the collection by right-clicking it. The collection should stay there until right-clicking "Close node" again. Even when closing the console.

    This would be very helpful for a software rollout, because we have to watch these collections for 1-2 weeks.

    Having this functionallity for deployments (Monitoring), SoftwareUpdateGroups, and so on would be brilliant.

  14. In a CAS Hierarchy, allow Existing Accounts to be used across multiple Primary Sites

    In a CAS hierarchy, it is necessary to either create new accounts for each Primary Site (for example, Client Push), or enter the same details for the same account more than once, which results in multiple accounts with the same name. It would be better to be able to use one account across multiple Primary sites, such that entering a New account once one one site allows that selection as an Existing account at another Primary Site.

  15. Rework the search criteria in the console to match the ADR experience

    The search criteria in the console don't allow for including/excluding multiple items based on the same criteria because it defaults to OR in stead of AND.

    As an example, I would like to only include items where Title does not contain "Itanium", "Preview" and "Security Only" from the All Software Updates view in order to create a Software Update Group. This is not possible with the combination of the OR and DOES NOT CONTAIN operators.

    I would suggest to allow for AND/OR selection, or to allow multiple criteria values on the same line. The filter experience in the Create ADRā€¦

  16. AdminConsole is using 30% CPU on Windows 10 1703 - DWM.exe 15% - When minimized CPU usage is 1-5%...

    The adminconsole is causing the machine to chug like crazy. It was fine in Windows 10 1607, but once 1703 was installed DWM.exe and the adminconsole process CONSTANTLY eat 30-50% cpu making the machine near unusable. Someone else has to be experiencing this.

    I am running on a Surface Pro 3 with two external 1440p monitors, doesn't matter if they are connected or not, the SP3 within 5 minutes kicks on the fan, all other tasks just chug (OWA, Edge, etc.)

  17. Task sequence media - compute space does not consider removed applications/packages

    When creating stand-alone media you have the option to select which Applications,Packages and driver packages it should include onto the media or not. After clicking next on the summary page the process of starting the media launches. in the createTSMedia.log you can see that at some point the process starts to compute volume layout. It seems that the compute of the volume layout does take into account the software you selected to not be on the media. Therefore you might get the message that you do not have enough space on the USBFD media altough this is not trough. Atā€¦

  18. 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.

  19. Add Software Update Point and last Software Scan Time to Client Activity within Devices on the Summary Tab

    On the Client Activity column of a device details on the Summary tab in the console please add two items.

    1) Last Software Update Scan / Evaluation
    2) Software Update Point

    This provides parity with the already existing Management Point information and last HINV and SINV scan times that are displayed. As a bonus maybe even throw in how many Missing Updates the device needs. :)
