  1. Filter built-in reports by collection

    Many built-in reports can be filtered by site, but I would like to see them modified so they can be filtered by collection.

    • 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…

      • Mail Notification for Collection changes

        We use install and uninstall Collections for Application Deployment over AD-Group (installation) and Softwareinventory (uninstall). When the number of clients in a collection is changing an email notification would be great.

        • Color theme

          To save companies time when building reports from other environments or being imported, it would be nice to have a CSS theme like template which can be applied to the look and feel of the report.

          So this would mean all objects, like pie or bar charts, fonts and frames, tables, text boxes can be changed as soon as you plant a CSS theme configuration setting on it.

          • Update (CUs) behavoiur on Reports

            To meet the business needs from our customers and to ease the access we have modified the default folder structure Microsoft uses. When an update is applied the default folder structure is re-created, We have to manually remove the default folder structure after each update. -> the existing folder structure should not be affected by an update

            • Historical Client Connections - Management Point

              It would be great to be able to report on within SQL how many clients in total have connected to a Management Point/s.

              The scenario being for example, in a newly configured IBCM environment it would be nice to be able to report on how many clients in total have connected to one of the IBCM enabled MP's, business use being able to report on current uptake.

              Currently you can report on LastScan but that is unfortunately only taken as a current snapshot and data would change as clients move back and forth between Internet and Intranet networks.

              • Compliance tracking per system on a time series. Ideally you could set your aggregation interval, vendor, and update classification.

                Would like to have a Table with a Resource ID , timestamp , and compliance %, vendor and Update Classification. The table aggregation interval could be daily or weekly, or follow data warehouse sync. With a capture of system specific data we can build BI reports per system, and aggregate per customer groupings. This would be a win for executive level reporting to show how every month SCCM moves the enterprise to compliant, as compliance percent drops on 2nd Tuesday and move up throughout the month. Detail level data is needed to drive exceptions (read snowflakes) into standard best practices.

                • Allow Resource Explorer to be opened from a Web Report

                  Web reports are great but are not very usable to display everything about a computer. You must have access to the Console and open Resource Explorer to see everything. Need a method to open Resource Explorer from a web report that shows a list of computers. This would make it easier to drill down to detailed information about a computer. We had this with previous competing products and it is the feature I miss the most.

                  • SCCM Driver Usage Report

                    Include a built-in report in the SCCM Console that could provide details about driver use/frequency of use of a particular driver, or for all drivers. This would greatly assist in providing us with visibility into which drivers are still in active use during builds.

                    • Dataware house service point and MBAM compliance information (sccm 1702 and later)

                      When sccm deletes old computer information (as per the scheduled system maintenace task), compliance information for Bitlocker is also removed for that computer.
                      Can the datawarehouse servicepoint also copy MBAM compliance to the datawarehouse database (when MBAM is integrated with SCCM).

                      • Track and make available through console (preferably) or SSRS reporting client connection to CMG and CDP history

                        We want SCCM to track, on a per individual device basis, which devices connected to CMG and/or CDP and when. We need this data for both reporting on effectiveness/utilization of CMG/CDP and also to help identify which systems are connecting versus which ones we expect to be connecting.

                        Currently, data is tracked only in quantities, for example, I can see how many systems connected over CMG in the past 30 days and how much data was used, but I cannot see which devices were the ones that connected.

                        Thank you.

                        • 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.

                            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.

                            • 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.

                              • 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

                                    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.

                                    • 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

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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
