  1. 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.

  2. Better default reports design

    Most of internal reports has quite poor design and usually does not tend to dislike it. They look like ConfigMgr legacy: 8 years lag.

    Why don't we use a team of designers just to make them look modern and stylish?

    Sometimes I find better to use pre-created custom reports for the demos...

  3. Log for Modficiations to Collections, Software Update Groups, Deployments, etc.

    Would be nice to have a log file that shows who made changes to collections, software update groups, deployments, etc. Currently we have dozens of individuals that have access to the SCCM console across our environment. Tracking down who made changes has been very challenging.

  4. Add Build01 to v_r_system_valid to display the OS Build number

    Currently you can find the Windows 10 build number in v_r_system, but not v_r_system_valid. As most reports are only looking for valid clients, it would be beneficial to be able to query the Windows 10 build version without joining to another view.

  5. relative time options for scheduled reports

    if you plan a report, e.g. "Antimalware overall status and history", to run every 1st day each month for example, you can only enter fixed dates for the report.
    There should be relative options like "first day of previous month" (see SCOM for good examples)

  6. Modify Custom Reports without Site Modify

    The ability to edit reports is based is based on assigned roles. If you create a separate folder for custom reports then you must give the users modify permission on the site so that their accounts are added into the 'ConfigMgr Report Administrators' SSRS role at the root report folder. That's a lotta permission just to edit custom reports. So ideally there'd be an RBA role permission for any report not covered by existing permissions. Really anything that disassociates that ability from modifying sites.

  7. Copy Query

    In the Reports area, there is a query area. It would be nice if we could copy a query. We have not found a good way of doing this.

  8. Windows 10 data usage reporting in SCCM database

    Hello,

    It would be really helpful to have Windows 10 data usage reporting added to SCCM database. With Windows 10 data usage details available as a GUI on OS itself, managements across IT would be keen have the same presented as a SCCM dashboard report. I see third party apps in Windows 10 store ;like 'Data Usage' giving very nice reports of the same. Really looking forward to have it in SCCM database.

  9. Client Data Sources Data - Timestamps

    Basically, in order to create better reports on things like content download performance etc ā€“ we need more accurate time stats so:

    1. Currently the time reported appears in the DB as - 2017-11-08 00:00:00.000 ā€“ so if effect we only get the date, although I see on the client that the actual correct start time is there in the CTM WMI class, so would it be possible to report this?
    2. What would be really great (if number 1 is possible) is if you could also report the ā€˜End Timeā€™ for a download. This would facilitate reports detailing downloadā€¦

  10. report broke in v1710

    v1710 issues with report "Hardware - Disk/Computers with low free disk space (less than specified MB free). Report name needs to reflect GB not MB. Which was changed in v1710

    Inventory default unit revision
    As devices now include hard drives with sizes in the gigabyte (GB), terabyte (TB) and larger scales, this release changes the default unit (SMS_Units) used in many views from megabytes (MB) to GB. For example, the v_gs_LogicalDisk.FreeSpace value now reports GB units.

  11. Export Query results to Excel

    It would be awesome to have the ability to export query results to an Excel spreadsheet directly from the console. You can do this in reporting, but not when using queries. Currently you need to select all, copy, and then paste into excel.

  13. Access user/computer focussed reports from the device/user collections

    If I right click on a computer in a collection there are many contextual items on the menu. It would be useful for us to be able to launch the 'compliance 5 - specific computer' report for that computer directly from the menu. there are other device centric reports focussed on the hostname that could be easily accessible.
    Possibly access the report from the same area as the 'primary user' link in the summary pane.

  14. Make Power BI Reporting Server licensing part of SCCM licensing

    Power BI is great to create dynamic reports and dashboards with SCCM data, but the licensing to publish those reports and make them available to your whole department or organization are a nightmare.

    This needs to be much easier, so why not just include it in the SCCM licensing, so we can all move away from SSRS and move to Power BI?

  15. Unable to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre

    I noticed SCCM is not able to pull Microsoft SQL Server 2014 & 2016 Edition report i.e. Standard, Enterprise, Express or Datacentre.

    This I have checked with multiple customers environment & in multiple SCCM version. Its very strange that Microsoft SCCM not able to pull Microsoft product inventory properly.

  16. Duplicate or Copy Report Subscriptions

    It would be a great feature to have the ability to copy or duplicate a report subscription. Often we have to create a new report subscription that matches an existing subscription (for updates compliance) before we are done using the existing subscription.

    Being able to copy a subscription will save a lot of work if the description, notes, schedule are all the same. All you have to do is change the update group in the parameters.

  17. Present number of records in a report from reporting point rollen (not Reporting Service oint)

    In ConfigMgr 2007 when running a reports from "reporting point" role (not "Reporting Service point") in Internet explorer you see "number of records:32] where 32 is the count of rows presented in the report.

    But when using "Report service point" in ConfigMgr 2007 or ConfigMgr CB v1902 there is no presentation of "number of records"

    Is it possible for you to add that to all reports?

  19. Manage the reports Subscription

    When you have many users and also many subscriptions on reports, you have an anarchy view of reports subscription .

    Does it possible to add the feature )> create folders for manage the reports on server ?
    Like this for exemple

    http:\\servername\reports\ (Subscriptions Folder)

    We must open each reports with the same function (same title) to do some modifications.
