  1. SCCM Report - Easy way to create Report & Dashboard

    Not really easy to create some SCCM report or Dashboard if your're not a SQL DBA .. even with Report Builder.

  2. Ability to Export Task Sequence (TS) for Documentation Purposes in Friendly Format

    It would incredibly useful to have a native ability in ConfigMgr to export a task sequence into an easily viewed format that can be utilised as part of design documentation for customers. Either into an Excel spreadsheet with appropriate formatting or possibly html.

    The alternative to this is complex Excel spreadsheets which are very time consuming or using unsupported export methods such as those described in this TechNet blog post: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/deploymentguys/2009/02/20/documenting-your-task-sequences-automagically-update-v2/

    I know quite a few consultants who would absolutely love to see this feature added to save a lot of time and effort which could otherwise be utilised doing…

  3. Report for all administrative actions

    It would be nice to have a report to list all administrative actions performed by admins in a CM site. A report similar to "Administration activity log", but not limited to changes in the administrative roles section.

  4. Expand Software Inventory to include Office 365 Add-ins

    Right now we have to use Office Telemetry to determine what Office 365 Add-ins are being used in our environment. We have a need to report on what add-ins are being used and to also be able to notify users who are using unapproved add-ins.

    Please add Office-addins as an additional class of software inventory in CM.

    Using Office Telemetry is overkill and the current process is very tedious. We are currently investigating the Git-Hub Get-OfficeAddins but feel that this level of inventory collection should be native to CM. In addition to collecting the add-in inventory data, some reports to…

  5. Link the Statistics to a report.

    Link the Statistics to a report. Like required is 100, it should link to a report showing the 100 machines.
    examples:
    It should show for Compliant, required, not required and Unknown.
    For Windows updates and Windows 10 servicing upgrades.
    Windows 10 servicing should link to reports showing the computer numbers.

  6. FIX: Distribution Point Usage Summary Report is Empty

    This report has no data:

    Home > ConfigMgr_PS1 > Software Distribution - Content > Distribution point usage summary

    Reason is the SMS_Distribution_Point_Monitoring component selects the last alphabetically stored and '*' separated MP name from registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints. This happens to be a management point in our untrusted DMZ forest and our production forest distribution points can not access this DMZ forest management point on port 443 due to firewall rules.

    When we rearrange the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP - ManagementPoints value so it will reference a production forest management point as the last '*' separated entry, the distribution point usage summary…

  7. Create "Missing Updates" overview and detail report to help us patch all the things with all the patches

    I'd love to see two new reports added to help systems managers ensure they patch all the things with all the patches.

    The overview report should be filterable by Collection and include Client Name, Last Scan Time, Total Missing Updates, and then totals for each Update Classification.

    The detail report should have the same filters as Compliance 5 except it should NOT have the Update Class field (If you add that, people will still just deploy only some updates, which is not the point of this report). The columns should be the same data as Compliance 5, but only return…

  8. SQL Server 2016, Reporting services

    Hi,

    SQL Server 2016 and Reporting Services is shaping up to be a gigantic upgrade! The new Reporting services actually looks like a tool from this century! And Power BI is just amazing.

    Is there any roadmap or info of when will SCCM will support SQL Server 2016 or just Reporting Services 2016?

  9. SCCM Reports - Option to create Favorites

    It would be a nice option to create favorites of ConfigMgr-Reports. There are over 500 built-in reports and many admins are spends a lot of time for searching.

  10. Provide Reporting Data for OneDrive Known Folder Move Calculation

    In 1902 TP you are able to apply a Known Folder Move policy to sync the sccm client agent with OneDrive. Specifically the Desktop, Pictures and Documents folders. it would be great if we had a report that provided us with the Individual size of each folder and the cumulative size of all three. This would allow administrators to assess and plan their upload strategies accordingly.

  11. Application deployment reporting - Report to retain data after re-evaluation of collection(s)

    application model doesn’t retain the data points as the systems falls out by using a limiting collection or “Not in” logic or have to clear the logic for a failed deployment.

    Once the systems fall out of the collection we lose the ability to pull reports on them.

    This same method works with the package deployment reports, using a limiting or “not in” logic the data points remains even after the system fall out of the collection.

    is there a table that can be create leverage to capture historical data to make a custom report for application deployment for collections…

  12. Windows AutoPilot Device Information (TP 1802)

    It would be great if we could be a little more granular with this report and target it at a specific collection. I appreciate we can't add the device name into the report as it takes away the export to csv functionality but targeting a collection would help us more easily identify which machines we are importing into AutoPilot.

  17. Need Client Data Sources reports that provide more detail than the Client Data Sources Dashboard

    Ability to show client data sources used on specific deployments in Reporting would be very helpful. The Client Data Sources dashboard does not prove the granularity I'm looking for.

  18. Expand Software Tag inventory to include optional elements

    Some software vendors include optional elements that are not gathered by the Asset Intelligence Software Tag Inventory. Adobe for example places the serial number in this section, and without being able to gather that serial number its impossible to tell what version of Acrobat is installed on a PC without writing convoluted scripts/CIs. Please expand the software tag inventory scan to include optional elements. Example of an Adobe software tag below

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <swid:software_identification_tag xsi:schemaLocation="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd software_identification_tag.xsd"
    xmlns:swid="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd&quot; xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

    <!--Mandatory Identity elements -->
    <swid:entitlement_required_indicator>true</swid:entitlement_required_indicator>
    <swid:product_title>Adobe Acrobat</swid:product_title>
    <swid:product_version>

  19. Include MSFT Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards with Configmgr

    Microsoft Premier Field Engineering has created custom Configmgr dashboards. These are available for purchase though Premier Support Contract. I'd like to suggest these be included in the Configmgr distribution.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Overview
    The CMAD solution (Configuration Manager Advanced Dashboards) delivers a data-driven reporting overview of the System Center Configuration Manager environment.
    This solution consists of a rich set of dashboards designed to deliver real-time reporting of ongoing activity in your Configuration Manager environment.
    Native Configuration Manager Reports are not replaced with this solution, the CMAD solution amplifies the data they show by providing additional data insights.
    The dashboards in this solution…

  20. office 365

    Show the Office build number as one of the column options in a Device Collection.

    Currently you can view the OS version, it'd be of great help to be able to see the Office version at a glance.
