  1. Maintenance window recurrence pattern offset from a base day

    Allow the recurrence pattern for maintenance windows to be scheduled with an offset from a base day.

    Meaning, if we want a maintenance window on the Wednesday following the Second Tuesday of every month, we could configure a maintenance window for the Second Tuesday with a +1 offset.

    (This would be similar to the offset option added to ADRs in 1802.)

  2. Details pane for users and devices should show collection memberships

    In devices screen, when we select a computer, all collections the computer is member of, should be listed in the below pane.

  3. Better Reporting for installed software

    Software normalization built into SCCM reporting. An integrated solution to manage software inventory, software intelligence and license management. As a SCCM administrator it has been difficult to provide accurate reporting on installed software packages without purchasing third party normalization tools like BDNA or SNOW. Software normalization capabilities would be a great addition to SCCM.
    1. Software Recognition Service that recognizes software requiring a license.
    2. Software title normalization.
    3. Ability to import all owned software licenses and then compare against what is actually installed.
    4. Ability to recognize when software has been removed or upgraded. Example: if Office 2010 hasā€¦

  4. Warning message for high-impact collection changes

    When I started working with SCCM years ago I was told that you're not really an SCCM admin until you accidently deployed MS Office to the whole company. Through my years of working with SCCM I've seen many people update a collection not knowing that there was a mandatory deployment attached which resulted in the deployment getting sent to systems that were not intended.
    I would like to see a check/notification box added when a query based collection is updated that reminds you of the required deployments attached. This message will only show if an unexpired required advertisement is stillā€¦

  5. Console -- Start -- client ping / mstsc with FQDN

    Make clients Calls like Ping / MSTAC witrh FQDN and not with Netbios. We have different AD connected to the SCCM . We can not use the build in features like Ping the clients or open RDP as the console only tries the netbios name and not the fqdn. It would be great to have all cleints call done trought FQDN

  6. Monitoring/Query - export data

    During the cutting and pasting in the query section, also allow the capture of the label column. This would have to be a bit 'faster to export the data. The best solution would be to have the ability to export via a dedicated button in various formats, csv, excel, pdf.

  7. Change hard coded limit for HW inventory mif files.

    There is a hard limit of 50 MBs for Hardware inventory set within the data loader for MIF file. If you enabled AI classes to collect more data by SCCM, it is not unusual for these computers to hit this hard-coded limit. This causes an endless loop of resyncs being performed by SCCM clients. the resync then consumes network bandwidth and processing time on the client/MP/etc. It is not until it hit the Data loader that these MIF files are rejected and ultimately a resync occurs to start the whole process over. The hard code limes should be increased toā€¦

    Ability to assign pre/post tasks to maintenance window and prioritize content application within the window.

    Example:
    1. patches
    2. appilication deployment A has higher priority than application deployment B
    3. packages
    4. task sequences
    5. settings mgmt remediation

  9. 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).

  10. 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.

  11. Export collection members

    Exporting member of collection to excel sheet is though easy but for large number or members (say more than 20K), it takes time to get them exported in the excel. MS should put the 2007 feature back which was just right click on collection and "Export Objects".

  12. Hardware Inventory for User Profiles

    Since ConfigMgr is now more user centric, it would be nice if user specific settings(registry) are discoverable via Hardware Inventory ( or a new inventory function. I would not consider this a DCM as we are looking to query and report on the data that is on the users profile vs a DCM which checks for compliance. Example would be something like if a user has a proxy set, what is it. Another example would be discovering all the trusted sites a user has configured. This would help us identify sites that we may need to include in a GPOā€¦

  14. Elevated Access - Delete Collections

    Full Administrators should have the ability to delete collections no matter what roles are assigned. Currently in our environment we have multiple roles that have access to various collections and once a collection is created it cannot be deleted unless it is removed from a large number of roles.

    Request to have the ability to delete with confirmation, this will remove the collection (if empty) no matter what assignments are set on it.

  15. Combine Resource Explorer and Properties

    It would be very helpful if the Properties window of a device included all of the information in the Resource Explorer.

    Motivation:
    1. I almost never open the Properties view because it rarely contains the information I'm looking for. The Resource Explorer, on the other hand, has almost everything.
    2. Having the Resource Explorer buried under a sub-menu makes it difficult to train and convince technicians to use it in their day-to-day workflow to find information and solve problems.
    3. Since Resource Explorer is far more useful than Properties, it should be the easier of the two things to getā€¦

  17. Collection Expiration

    Provide an option to "expire" a collection where it gets removed (or at lease collection evaluations are disabled) on a specified date. This would help with the collection evaluator from becoming overloaded with processing Pilot/Test collections that were "forgotten".

    Feature Request Nr1 : They use the node drain / node resume feature with PowerShell. They are still modifying and changing the script almost every week . That script is used for those 600 collections :

    a) a central repository/place to enter the script details and be able to reuse that for each server group collection like for power management custom templates .
    b) If they make a change in the ā€œcentralā€ PowerShell repository , it keeps history ( Like application revisions ) and replaces that automaticallyā€¦

  19. Create a collection based on computers that can install a specific driver using hardware IDs collected and match against hardware IDs in the

    Allow for the ability to create a collection/query based on computers that can install a specific driver using hardware IDs collected and match against compatible hardware IDs in the driver inf file. This would help to determine what drivers are compatible with what computers in a more efficient way. Then deploy the driver package to those computers to update (using devcon.exe or similar). Third party driver management (through updates catalogs) are still storage hungry and cumbersome. This would be a very effective solution.

  20. Add some usefullness to the Asset Intelligence

    Provide some usefulness to create reports, pull uninstall information, possibly allow a simple right-click create uninstall package from software in the Inventoried Software List. Currently this is a mostly useless item as all it does is show the install count, does not even list the devices that have something installed.
