  1. Enable a column for primary user!

    Enable an option to quickly see the primary user of a device (within the columns on the console) I don't have time to individually click machines or run reports to find the primary user.

      This is fixed in the just shipped #SCCM 1802 release. For both Primary User, and Logged on user. We still will improve a couple things:
      1) it is only in devices views; and we will add it in more views (collections, etc.)
      2) We actually think we can do even better than this, and use the SCCM fast channel to show currently logged in now users. If you like this idea, vote here:

    • automatically search all sub-nodes

      Currently, when changing nodes from Application, to Packages to Collection, every time you begin a search, you must re-check the box to 'Search all Sub-nodes'. As the average SCCM admin might make dozens of searches a day to find content, computers, collections, this is really irritating. It would be a better behavior to automatically search all sub-nodes.

      • Automatically upgrade all UI consoles when upgrade the site

        Now that ConfigMgr is shipping many times a year - make it easy (automatic) to upgrade all the Admin UIs.

        • Make hyperlink on properties page take you to content status (was Admin Console UI fix)

          When in the properties of an application, package etc on the summary tab there is a hyperlink to content status. It would be a very productive update to take you directly into the status of the object instead of dumping you into the root of content status and having to search for the application etc you were just in.

          • Better support of high DPI and UI scaling in the console

            I know Windows 10 is bringing much better support of HiDPI, but I don't believe the console is taking advantage of those enhancements.

            Most of the console renders OK on HiPDI screens, but there are many windows that are simply unusable due to improper support of scaling. The examples I've attached are from a 4K monitor at 150% (which is the default for Windows). This issue also occurs on HiPDI screens on laptops like the Dell XPS 13.

            • Continue to invest in Out-of-band support (Intel Vpro/AMT)

              SCCM only supports up to version 6, latest hardware uses version 10.
              SCCM provisioning uses SOAP which was deprecated by Intel.
              This is now a big hassle for people who want to use Intel Vpro in combination with SCCM. We need to make use of an Intel Add-on (Intel SCS) to get things working but it’s far from ideal.
              Please bring back the provisioning support compatible with the latest versions of Vpro and bring support for new features such as KVM.

                In order to support customers as the speed Intel is update Vpro/AMT – we worked with Intel for them to own the integration, and support latest versions (as ConfigMgr itself only supported up to version 6.) Intel has released an updated version that should solve the customer needs:
                http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/software/setup-configuration-software.html
                We will continue to partner with Intel to provide APIs they need for the integration.

              • Please improve accessibility of SCCM for blind system administrators.

                SCCM 2005 was very accessible to system administrators who are blind. However, Versions after this from 2008 on are not usable. This has resulted in any system administrator who is blind who requires access to SCCM to perform his or her duties to find alternative responsibilities. Up to 2013 I happily worked as a system administrator. I loved this part of the IT industry. However, because so much of my job revolved around using SCCM I had no choice but to leave and refocus my efferts somewhere else. I ask Microsoft to redouble your committment to accessibility to include improving…

                  • Add a column to device collections not only for Operating System but build/releaseid

                    Is it possible to add a column to device collections for OS build / release id (i.e. Windows 10 1703 or Windows 10 15063.xxxx) to easily identify the installed Windows 10 version. The column Operating System is sometimes not quite enough information. Thanks!

                    • Enable a column for Windows 10 Build Version!

                      Please add a column with the OS Build version to the console. It's really a pain when reports or collection querys have to be used to get this information.

                      • Show version incompatability and allow ability to upgrade console to match the Primary site version of Configuration Manager

                        Today, you can be running a console with one version, that is not in synch with what is running on the primary. The only way you'll know is if you are missing features added to a newer release or if troubleshooting leads you down that route. You have to check the about page in the console to verify version number and compare that against what is installed on the Primary site server to see if they match, what I'm proposing is an easy visual way in the console to inform you when your versions don't match, and to offer the…

                            The "Delete each collection member from the database" tick box clickable field extends to immediately above the "OK" button, making it extremely easy to select on accident. The field should only exist within the space of the box itself, or slightly outside of it.

                                This has been bugging me for a while (since 2012 really)

                                Why are the min/max/close buttons so big?
                                They don't seem to use the Look & feel of the OS

                                Attached a screenshot of the Admin Console running in Windows 10, but the buttons look so outdated and out of place...

                                  • To be able to send wake up packet to a client from the admin console

                                    It would be useful to send a wake up packet to a client machine from the admin console to allow remote access if the machine has been turned off. This could be a check box option on the remote control screen. For example: "Send wake up if client is off"

                                    • Fix Console performance on systems with touch devices

                                      If you have a device with a touch screen, and/or digitizer/stylus, the Admin Console performance takes a huge performance hit on general use, and may lag for several minutes when performing simple tasks such as viewing "Users", "Devices", "Software Updates", etc. Disabling the touch devices in Device Manager result in the same action taking only several seconds. Confirmed on Surface Pro 3, HP All-In-Ones, and a variety of other devices. This issue has been reported to, AND reproduced by, our Microsoft support contact.

                                      Example: I have a collection of around 1100 devices. If I view that on the server, or…

                                      • Fix - Console locks up on disconnected/reconnected RDP sessions

                                        In more than 10 different environments, over the past 5 or so versions of SCCM, I have found that my SCCM console will lock up when I have a disconnected session for over a day, then I reconnect to it. For example, if I leave a console, say, over the weekend, I can't do anything with it on Monday. I have to kill it from the task manager. Again, in many different environments. This is only on the site server, that's where I will typically log in and work. I have not seen this behavior in a remote console. I…

                                        • Allow 'Windows Store for Business' feature settings to be changed/removed

                                          After incorrectly setting up a Windows Store for Business link, there is no way to remove or change this...

                                          Users need to be able to change the storage location, remove links to the Store or be able to update the key if it has expired. Currently it just says "The AAD credentials supplied must be tested before continuing." with an OK button.
