  1. Make "Pending Restart" available under "Add Criteria"

    Having the possibility to add Pending Restart as an option under Add Criteria for devices would be great.

  2. Add computer model as a column

    Can you add ā€œcomputer modelā€ as a column option for devices. When looking at devices, that seems to be the only field missing when we are trying to sort by things such as OS, computer name, etc. Can you also add a way for us to rename or mask these models. For example, when we look at Lenovo models we get what looks like a serial number instead of T480s. Having the ability to update that model number to an actual name will help. Thanks.

  3. Ability to disable some AD system discoveries.

    Our current AD Sys Discovery takes over 2 days to process. It would be great to be able to disable some or all of them without deleting the configuration from the discovery method so that I could target specific domains. Currently if I need to target a specific, I have to delete all of the other ones. Or leave it, and wait 2 days for it to finish.

  4. Control Software Inventory Throttling in Client Settings

    Add the ability to control software inventory throttling to the client settings, in order to let admins decide to turn off throttling (without compiling a MOF).

  5. Create Collection by importing CSV or TXT of device/user

    Many times during a project or deployment of a new software we will need to deploy to a specific set of computers. These will most of the times consists of a list of computer names in an Excel file. A native way when you create your collection to import a CSV or TXT with a list of device name to automatically populate your collection would be a very nice addition

  6. Improve performance on queries bases on custom inventory

    Many customers are adding custom hardware inventory classes and build collections on the data collected. Today the inventory tables are not indexed by default which has a negative performance effect, especially in large environments. It would be great to have an opportunity to classify the most used fileds and ceate a index on them to speed up queries.

  7. SQL Editions Inventory

    Add granular reporting information to the default Hardware Inventory mof for SQL Server editions.

    Currently the installed software tables just show SQL is installed with no detailed data on edition or versioning. This impacts the reporting data taken by our assets and licensing team, for instance a server with the SQL studio tools can show in this report and be incorrectly assigned a license from the pool.

    We do use a custom mof file to get this information separately but would be beneficial to have the data natively in one table for ease of use and remove extra workloads.

  9. Scope Folders: Ability to hide folders to users by Scopes

    The ability to make a Folder visible to people in the correct Security Scope. We can currently hide collections that are in the Folders, by using Scopes, but users see the folders still.

  10. Sorting by the Icon column should sort the different states, especially with device online/offline

    Currently, when you sort by the Icon column, the items with the same state icon don't end up sorted together for some reason. With the device online/offline icons now in the console, this is an especially good time to finally fix this issue that goes back to CM12 RTM.

  11. Collections, View device model as additional column

    I would like to be able to view the device model information within a collection from the admin console\device collections. This currently does not seem to be available from the menu when I right click on a collections column headings to add more columns.

    I believe this may be useful as an additional way to ensure that mistakes have not been made when creating queries to populate collections with specific models\manufacturers.

    As an example, I created a collection for a specific manufacturer that the computer object also had membership of a specific Active Directory OU. This resulted in the collectionā€¦

  12. Nesting Distribution Point Groups

    Allow Nesting Distribution Point Groups.

    We have an issue with not always wanting to replicate all content to all locations due to content size and applicability, but to specific locations determined by function.

    Examples:
    Site A - Imaging DP Group. (Server DataCenter Environments)
    Site B - Imaging DP Group. (Desktop Environments)
    Site C - Imaging DP Group. (A mix of Environments and business units)

    These three sites have different business functions. So while not all imaging content would be the same across the board. It would be nice to have if you could nest those three Distribution Point Groups intoā€¦

  13. Advanced Security Audit and User Affinity

    Please update SCCM to support the audit events generated using Advanced Security Audit instead of just the classic audit settings. SCCM should automatically detect the audit regime in use and look for the appropriate audit entries. SCCM should be able to manage user affinity for both Advanced audit and classic audit scenarios. Also remember that in many companies or projects, the people managing SCCM is not the same people managing GPOs.

  14. Create Boundaries based on OU membership.

    We are have lots of groups that are coming into the company using VPN. As an example we canā€™t properly manage locations with many machines all coming into the corporate network via a common VPN and the IP addresses change every time and the network speed is a challenge. We end up flooding their pipe into the VPN so if we could use OU membership as a boundary we could managed the deployments.

  15. Add ability to add notes/properties to a given computer/server in SCCM console

    It would be nice to be able to add a note to a asset in the sccm console. For instance, something like "this server is running so and so application and cannot have the sccm client installed. Call so and so if you have any questions." The data of course would be available as an optional column to view in the console. Maybe have user defineable data points that can become properties of the computer even though it may not have the client installed.

  17. Security: Prevent or prompt for modifications to collection rules with existing deployments

    We now have deployment verification to prevent damaging deployments from being created, but that doesn't stop existing deployments from being deployed accidentally.

    It would be great to prevent or atleast prompt for any modifications to collection membership rules (large number of direct adds, include, query) when the collection already has an existing deployment.

    If you check ADD/Remove Programs you will see programs like Microsoft Teams, which are not collected by SCCM. When you create an ADD/Remove report or SQL query, you will not see these user based installs.

  20. Server Groups - Increase Length of Drain and Resume Scripts

    The drain and resume scripts are currently limited to 512 characters each. I know there is currently a request to add native cluster aware patching support, but it would be a great start to simply increase the size limit of the scripts. It doesn't seem like there is a safe way to "drain" a server from a cluster to prep it for patching in a mere 512 characters, especially considering that we have to use up some of those characters to return the correct exit code.

    We can run some pretty complex and lengthy scripts in configuration items and baselines,ā€¦
