  1. State messages should be time stamped in the GUI

    When I look at the reporting, I'm of course especially interested in the errors.
    If there appears to be a structural problem, then a solution is developed and implemented.
    However - unless it's a change in the revision of an application - there is no clear way to distinguish between errors from before and after the change.

  2. Add Schedule column to v_servicewindow

    With the SQL view vSMS_ServiceWindow, there are a column Schedules. This column allows you to see exactly what day Maintenance Window is scheduled for. The correspond supported SQL view is v_ServiceWindow. However, that column isn’t listed without it being listed there is no way to determine what day an MW applies too.

    Select distinct
    isnull(SWin.Name,'No Maintenance Windows') as 'SWinName',
    isnull(SWin.IsGMT,'') as 'SWinIsGMT',
    SWin.StartTime as 'SWinStartTime',
    isnull(SWin.Duration,0) as 'SWinDuration',
    case
    when isnull(SWin.ServiceWindowType, 0) = 0 then 'No Maintenance Windows'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=1 then 'All Programs Service Window'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=2 then 'Program Service Window'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=3 then 'Reboot Required Service Window'
    when SWin.ServiceWindowType=4…

  3. Add a way to see what servers are core installation

    Would be nice to be able to tell within the console, or via a collection which servers are installed as server core, or with desktop experience without jumping through hoops.

  4. Inbuilt report to Determine the size of userprofiles for a Specific collection

    We are currently planning on implementing OneDrive in our organization and would like to actually get an estimation of size of a User Profile for our site based collections.

    I found couple of websites that actually provided me the idea of how to implement it, but it would be better for organizations if SCCM Can actually provide an Inbuilt report to retrieve the Size of User profile for a specific collection.

  5. Add a report about # of current online clients

    ConfigMgr 1810 has a fabulous chart about # of current online clients per on-prem MP/internet MP/CMG within the last 30 days (Monitoring -> Cloud Management --> Online clients (last 30 days)).

    This chart is super useful to figure out how many computers are online /day/time.

    There should be a report with the same info so you could:
    - export the chart to different formats
    - schedule the report to run every 30 days to get longer trends about client usage

  8. Report to output the content of a TS and the descriptions for easy documention

    Most places i have worked have wanted the task sequence documented. It would be great if we had a report that would output the task sequence with all the steps and the comments fields.

  9. DataWarehouse reports - Filter Software Updates Compliance on a SUG

    Currently a computer seems to be marked as non-compliant if at least one update is missing in the DW tables. There are loads of reasons why this may be justified. The DW reports would be much better if we could filter on a SUG as that would be more meaningful for end users

  10. Allow normal SQL queries instead of WQL

    Writing queries requires using WQL which has a very stripped back feature set. Please allow normal SQL queries to be used.

  11. Optimize Report "Software Metering\Computers that have run a specific metered software program"

    Software Metering\Computers that have run a specific metered software program

    Just add a little quick "Distinct" ResourceID in the sub query of the Dataset 0 could accelerate significantly the execution timing of this report

  12. Seggregating SQL tables/views for SCCM Application and for Admins

    1286 tables and 7153 views, makes it an extensive and difficult job for SCCM Admins to create custom reports, as herculean task for finding where needed info exits, sometime data is available in multiple table/views, makes it tough to decide. Do you think it helps to re/design table or views naming structure in such a way that, set of them are meant for SCCM application for internal purposes which we don’t user for reporting purposes, and a second set of them are meant for SCCM Admin for creating report purposes, making the naming convention and data available in later section…

  13. Fix bug in data warehouse report for EndPoint Protection

    In the SQL query for the datawarehouse Endpoint report the line in the query "ELSE DATEDIFF(day, AntivirusSignatureUpdateDateTime, @Now) " means that there is never more than 7 days worth of data reported in the report. This is because this line says that anything over 7 days is non-compliant because it compares against @now.

    A better comparison is against the date the data was entered i.e. "ELSE DATEDIFF(day, AntivirusSignatureUpdateDateTime, am.LastSyncTime_DW)" - which makes it relative to the Sync data rather than the date the report is run.

  14. GroupPolicy reporting CI

    As there may be situations that admin would like to get extensive reporting if GPOs are in place and effective as planned in their organization, would be nice to have some dropdowns or listitems of GPOs that one could select to be as Configuration Items.

    1000's of GPOs are available but sure MS has some ready list/xml/whatever that could be included in SCCM CI so reporting of GPOs, as they are just reg values, would be possible.

  15. Option to copy dashboard / monitoring code. to be able to use in external reporting tool

    Consider to implement the option to copy/export the code from a dashboard or monitoring view. this should be the SQL code, that generates the view
    This would give the possibility to present the data in e.g. PowerBI, Servicenow, Cherwell etc. and at the same time remove the requirement for SCCM console access for users with reporting requirements.
    The scope could be all nodes under monitorting

  16. Installed monitors report

    My idea would be for the SCCM team to create a report that collects the monitors installed on the PCs. The report would contain: PC name, last user logged on, last date when somebody logged on, Diagonal Size, Current Resolution, Max Supported Resolution, Monitor Manufacturer, Model, S/N of monitor, Date of manufacture.

    Location of report would be : Monitoring --> Reporting --> Reports --> Hardware - Monitors or create the report under the Hardware - Video Card.

    Currently there is no such report.......
    Please Microsoft SCCM team, make our lives easier :)

    You are doing a fantastic job to hear…

  17. Update and remove old software references in the canned reports

    The canned reports for Asset Intelligence are great, but they are out of date.
    I don't see any updates or references to Windows 10, and I see Windows XP still listed, as well as many out of date, unsupported softwares.

    For an upcoming upgrade, a refresh of all those canned reports would be fantastic.

  18. Add 'Subject' to Subscriptions pane

    We have a lot of subscriptions that use the same Report Name, and it is nearly impossible to determine which Subscription is which. Can you please add a Column to the Subscription pane that will show the 'Subject' of each particular Report? this will make it much easier to identify what each subscription is. Thanks!

  19. Location field (city) for: Servers, Management Points, Distribution Points

    Reporting is limited by the available data. A Location field allows geographic reporting.

  20. Report to include memory under 4GB in a specific model

    In this section of SCCM: \Monitoring\Overview\Reporting\Reports\Hardware - Memory, it would be great to be able to see all computers that have less than 4GB of RAM, based on model. For example, I want to know how many of the Dell 3440s have 2GB so I can order more RAM for them.
    Thanks!
