  1. Send Wake-up packets to a collection outside of a deployment

    It would be nice for remote management after hours to be able to send wake-up packets to computers so they could be remoted into

  2. Collection Columns

    Is it possible/can we please implement the ability to load collected system or user discovery data as columns for collections and the Users/Devices areas?

    (May be duplicated with an idea inside an idea of another Collection idea, but I did my fair share of browsing before posting this...)

    Currently there are only five or six columns available for the Users area in the console, and the ability to display custom collected active directory information from system discovery as a column such as 'Managed By' or 'Description' for a device in the devices area isn't available. Inclusively, data collected from theā€¦

  3. Allow export of Collection queries to a Query

    We, like many institutions, have experienced "Collection Creep", over the years, that is, we have accumulated many collections which are no longer necessary for software distribution. The logic used in these collections however is still valid and can occasionally be useful, so it would be very handy if we could simply export the logic to a query, which could then be run as required. It could be designed so that an include or exclude could also include the logic from those collections, and restricted to only work on Query-based collections.

  4. Have preview button when building collections

    When building collections (particularly query collections) it would be handy to be able to preview the devices/users in the collection as written before you commit. Today we have to edit the collection, update membership, refresh then confirm that the membership is correct. If you have a button inside of "Edit Query Statement" it would save a lot of hassle.

  6. Join Collections

    It would be useful to be able to create collections based on the common membership of two other collections, directly from the "Add Rule" button (see attached). This would effectively be an inner join of two or more collections. This option could simply be called "Join Collections".

    Of course, this can be achieved using queries within the collection, however doing this at the collection level (instead of within a query) would allow us to create more complex collections much more quickly.

    Overall this is a quick efficiency improvement.

  7. User/Device Collection Import Feature

    I would like to see a feature in the Configuration Manager console, similar to downloading a template in Office apps, for User and Device Collections. Adding a way for the community to also share collections in this repository would be nice as well.

  9. Create an Collection Base on IOS Profile or Android Devices

    actually all device enrolled come on all IOS device but is not manageable if we want to deploy App or Base rule on Different devices we need to Create manually an collection and add all the devices in this collection also manually who generate a lot of works.

    if we have the possibility to create an collection and to be able to have all device registered who are assigned to ios Profile this collection will be populate automatically and that will also give our live more easy,

  10. Collections for machines that don't get any deployments except OS updates.

    We have digital signage that is W7 runs a java app and that's it. It is in the main collection for our company. When we push installs around we have to make sure we have this collection set as an exclusion in all 400 of our deployments. I'd like an option or let's discuss the best way that says, all this software for normal operations goes to the company, maybe it gets deployed by our HQ without local control, but we don't want ANY software going to these machines ALWAYS except for OS updates. Digital signage doesn't need app updatesā€¦

  11. SMP not properly detected as LOCAL during MDT OSD

    We are running 1710 and we have the following issue.
    The client is in the same boundary group as the DP and SMP (Same host).
    The client properly initiates the OSD from the local DP but once it tries to detect the SMP, it fails to see it as LOCAL (shows it as REMOTE).

    To overcome this issue, we found two workarounds but this needs to be fixed.


    1. Remove the Failback Boundary Groups from the Boundary Group
      OR

    2. Add the Primary Site Server to the Boundary group Site System Servers

    Both of the above are breaking architecture so this shouldā€¦

  12. Collection membership history for Client Computers

    It would be great to be able to see the membership history of individual client computers. This way we can check to see why certain deployments happened in the past. Personally have had this situation where we get a deployment to a PC mistakenly but the PC was removed from the collection so we have no evidence to report on why the deployment took place.

  13. Maintenance Windows for select applactions

    Apply Maintenance Windows to Select applications. Example you have a collection of machines that have VPN client installed. You apply Maintenance window to enforce updates at night while ensuring that it doesn't during the day.

    As the same time this machine is part of another collection that has applications you don't mind it updating in the middle of the day.

  14. From a deployed software, be able to go directly to the collection

    Many of us has a legacy environment that we have to take care of. And most of the time it is a messy looking SCCM in our hands.

    This does cause issues at times when the previous admin did set up far too many collections and it is quite time consuming when you try to figure out where this collection is located in SCCM in about 50 sub-folders (make it 100 with user and device collections).

    It would be nice if we could right-click on the collection that a software is deployed to, and select "Go to collection" and itā€¦

  16. Add "Exclude" option to Context menu

    For example, I have a query that populates a device collection based on certain things.
    This can be valid for a user collection based on department.
    However, if I want to exclude just a couple of computers or users, maybe it would make sense to view all the members of the collection, right click on the ones I want excluded and then "Exclude" them, instead of adding exclusions one at a time or different workarounds.

  18. Provide ability to define default settings for Collections

    Wouldn't it be nice to have like a "Template" which is used when the Create Collection wizard runs. The template for example could have prefix (like SD - for sofware distribution), a default Collection Update interval, the abiltiy to disable incremental updates when used etc...

  20. Collection protection from deletion

    I would like to see some kind of protection from accidentally deletion.
    Sometimes I find myself accidentally deleting folder or collections which I did not want to delete.
    Just like in Active Directory OU there is a protection for this.
