    Hi Bechir -
    Thanks for taking the time to post your suggestions, there’s some good stuff in there. Some of it you can already find as existing ideas (like the approval request by email) and others look like new ideas. I’m going to decline this request and ask you to open individual ideas for each of your suggestions. That makes it easier for others to find and vote on individual ideas.

    Thanks again!

  2. state messages own component thread

    State Messages today share SMSExec thread with Status messages. State messages are a lower priority. Even though State messages process super fast, we have been in the issue where we have 300,00 status message backlog and and 3.4 million state message back log. Only way to get the state messages to process first is to move all the status messages from the inbox, allow state messages to process and then slowly add the status messages back in as ConfigMan can not handle large amount of files in those inboxes.

    So we are looking to allow State Messages, it own threadā€¦

    State messages are processed by the SMS_STATE_SYSTEM component, and status messages are processed by the SMS_STATUS_MANAGER component. Both use independent threads and inboxes, and should operate independently. A state message backlog should not be causing delays for status message processing unless there’s a SQL bottleneck or unknown product issue.

    I’d recommend working with support to better understand what’s happening here.

  3. SCCM 2012 CU 5 - urgent requirements

    Requirements:

    1. Collection:

    -You are creating a collection with a Query based rule
    -The query statement is about adding 2000+ machines to the collection
    -But in the show Query design window, if we copy the query which is containing 2000+ systems, its unable to accommodate that
    -You are able to add around 1800 systems in CM 2007, in the same way, but not in CM 2012

    1. Program:

    -In CM 2007, you create a package
    -Create couple of programs a.Disable b. Enable
    -In Advertisement, you first select the Disable program
    -After your QA team validates it, they will just change the programā€¦

  4. Need details pane for Intune Subscription information

    It would be nice to have a 'details' pane when selecting a subscription, to maybe even show a little bit of status (like last time synchronized, number of devices enrolled, etc.

  5. Mobile Device User Relationship. Intune Hybrid Setup- Reporting feature to list primary devices for users.

    Ability to generate a report in SCCM to list Primary mobile device for a user. Lack of this reporting feature creates additional overhead to MDM Administrators in identifying the user's device to take any remote actions. E.g. The device name could be "iPhone" There can be 100's of device with name "iPhone". This should be a very basic reporting capability that should have been in place. Kindly consider this request and introduce this reporting feature.

  8. Console GPU Usage

    I have noticed through task manager that the Configuration Manager Console uses a fair amount of GPU. For my particular laptop, it is about 20% of the 3D engine on my GPU.

    If I could toggle a power saving feature for the console, which would reduce the GPU usage in some way, it would help increase the length of battery power on my laptop.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    The console is built upon the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) framework. By default, this framework will use GPU hardware acceleration and rendering when it can. (More details at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/wpf/advanced/optimizing-performance-taking-advantage-of-hardware)

    We shouldn’t be doing a lot in the way of computationally heavy graphical operations in the console, but there may be room for optimizations in some UI areas.

    If you see any specific areas that seem to be harder on the GPU please send us a frown from that specific UI area so we can look into it.

  9. Allow pause software distribution

    There should be a way to pause or stop package distributions (not deployment). Sometimes a large package will inadvertently be distributed to distribution points during the day or overnight (very large package) and clogs the pipeline. Having the ability to pause or stop or reschedule those distributions would be helpful - especially when an e-fix needs to be distributed quickly but can't be distributed due to traffic.

    We should already have several tools in place to control content distributions.

    • You can set schedules for a distribution point to prevent or limit when data can be sent. You can also set rate limits.
    • You can cancel a content distribution that’s in progress
    • You can put a distribution point into maintenance mode which will cancel any in progress distributions and block future distributions until it’s taken out of maintenance mode

    Let us know if none of these work for your scenario.

  10. Extensions for Windows Intune

    It should be possible that extensions for Windows Intune can be installed without adminrights while opening the Admin Console after the Extension is activated.

  11. Pending Reboot - Client Status

    Could we have one or all of these features?

    1) A built-in dynamic collection for just computers that are in Pending Reboot Status

    2) Under The Monitoring section under Client Status - Include a Pending Reboot table of some sorts.

    Thanks,

    I’m going to decline this for now (given you know the 0-vote system to get my attention), to give you quick feedback. This is an interesting idea; but not something we could make work. Reboot notifications are through the fast channel, and thus too volatile – and would stress colleval out if a dynamic collection was based on them. For now, you can sort (or filter) in the UI – anytime you are looking to take action on them.
