  1. 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…

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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

          • 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…

            • 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.

              • 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!

                • 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!

                  • In-Depth Information needed on Changes witin Reporting done by any CU

                    No information is provided whether and what has changed within the reporting. I am particularly interested in very technical information, like stored procedures or changes that include the RBA model. Some of the changes might affect individually created reports, if they use the same methodology like the MS reports. Proactively apply those changes would suit me much better than waiting for an incident to be reported on a specific report -> detailed technical information on changes should be provided with each update (sp, used fn, ...)

                    • Filter EndPoint & Software Updates DataWarehouse report via Collection

                      The datawarehouse reports are a welcome addition. However it would be much more useful to be able to filter on collection for the report "Endpoint Protection and software updates compliance - Historical". We could then drill down to collections built on OS Version etc

                      • Send report subscriptions to an MS hosted Sharepoint site

                        I currently have over 60 reports that I have to copy on a daily basis to 13 different directories (due to their content/category) on a SharePoint site, as the OneDrive sync tool has issues, not to mention that persistent drive mapping to an MS hosted SharePoint site is not consistent, and I have to remap the drive when the site is failed over to a different server for patching, etc.
                        Manually copying these files is tedious.

                        • Windows 10 Dashboard - Include Windows 7 devices

                          As we get closer to the EOL of Winodws 7, it would be cool to have another widget in the Windows 10 servicing dashboard that shows Win10 v Win7 usage and the EOL date. Its a small thing but some additional visibility like that could help kick some orgs in the rear to get going on the upgrade to Win10.

                            • Add LastBootupTime to "Software updates - Compliance by computer" report

                              The "Software updates - Compliance by computer" sub-report is an easy way to see which computers have failed updates.

                              Updates often are in a "failed" state because the computer hasn't been restarted recently.

                              Therefore, adding the last time the computer restarted to the report would make it easy to quickly identify if that is the likely cause of failing updates.

                              (Additionally, adding "primary user" to the report would be appreciated.)

                              • export list of computers from devices

                                I would like to be able to go to Devices or open a collection of devices, or even from the queries section. Add whatever information I'm looking for in the "Columns to Fit" area then be able to export exactly what I have on my screen into Excel. It would make reporting so much more simple. For those small requests that managers give you.

                                  • Run a powershell script when an alert is triggered to allow integration with 3rd party tools

                                    The ability to create email subscriptions gives rudimentary notification when alerts happen. The ability to run a powershell script would open the possibility of integrating with 3rd party monitoring and notification systems. Current systems such as Solarwinds, PRTG,nagios/icinga2 and others have REST interfaces that can easily be addressed from powershell. This kind of integration would enable shops that choose not to run SCOM a way to integrate SCCM alerts into their existing monitoring set ups.

                                    Ideally the script call would be able to pass the alert data to the script in some fashion.

                                    • SCCM Reports: Add capability to search for compliance by IAVM

                                      Request SCCM enhancement to search for compliance by IAVM# (IAVA, IAVB) for either Enterprise-level or individual site under SCCM reports. A single IAVM may have several KB #'s (ex: MS patches) or there are very limited search capabilities for most 3rd party applications. Capability to capability to search SCCM reports by IAVM# will reduce amount of time in searching/compiling compliance metrics and will allow for quicker reporting of overall compliance.

                                      • 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.
