  1. Create ability to select computers from "Asset Details" pane and make a Collection

    When in Monitoring > Deployments, I need to triage systems that are in Error or Unknown status. In case I have made a remediation package or PowerShell Script, it would be ideal if I could select one or more computers from the Asset Details, then right click and make a Collection out of them. Then I can deploy a remediation script.

  2. Provide a way such as progress bar for installation status check during Embedded servicing

    Software distribution functions with Windows 10 TH2(UWF servicing mode enabled) + CM TP4 agent.
    However when the machine restart into servicing mode end user didnā€™t see any progress/status of installation as snapshot below. We know none of the version of ConfigMgr have ever ahd a progress bar during Embedded servicing. Due to user experience improve purpose, that will be better to add progress bar or other information for status check.

  3. Refresh button in Status view for Deployments

    When viewing the Status tab in the More Details dialog for a particular asset in Deployment Monitoring, it would be very useful to have a "refresh" button similar to that in the Show Status dialog in the Site Servicing Status. Right now, if you want to check the most recent status of a running Task Sequence deployment for a machine, you have to close the Show Status dialog and re-open it to see any changes. With the refresh capability available in the new servicing, it would be nice to see that functionality in other dialogs as well.

  4. Monitoring->Deployment Status extension

    Is it possible to improve details for Deployment status? Currently, no any info regarding issue and details and if you are looking for root reason of deployments issue you should check local client's logs.

  5. Export Errors from the Deployment Status [Monitoring]

    Right now theres no easy way from Deployment status to just get a list of computers in error and copy and paste all computers that have an error, regardless of what it is.

  6. Show installation progress on the Windows Lock Screen

    It would be incredibly useful to show progress on the lock screen for in-place OS Upgrade Task sequences. After the OS upgrade is complete, we have several additional task sequence steps that need to run before a user should log on. A visible progress bar and/or completion notice would help out a lot.

  8. More User Notifications

    Add the following user notifications to a deployment:
    ā€¢ Display in Software Center and hide all notifications
    ā€¢ Hide in Software Center and show all notifications
    ā€¢ Hide in Software Center and only show notifications for computer restarts

  9. Monitoring --> Deployments --> Error: Possibility to rerun deployment from there

    It would be nice to rerun failed Deplyoments manually directly from the Console via "right klick --> rerun failed Deployment".

  10. Open multiple deployments at once for monitoring.

    I want to monitor many different deployments at once. I should be able to go to monitoring > deployments, select several different deployments and open them at once. Instead we have to open each one then go back and open the next one.

  11. Ability to edit deployment popup banner visible to end users

    Give us the ability to edit the deployment banner visible to end users when deploying new applications or software updates. Users normally receive the generic message for all deployments. I would like to edit either within client settings or provide a checkbox during the new deployment window "Edit Deployment message", Therefore, would allow us to edit the message based upon the type or deadline time requirement for either application or software updates.

  12. Need to enable the option to run "Client Notification" options for devices under Deployment Monitoring Status Node

    Under Deployment Monitoring Status Node especially while checking a deployment status we get to see error category node and double clicking the same would provide us the list of machines under that category. We need to enable the client notifications under this just like we run client notification actions on collections or devices inside a collection.

  15. Use osdcomputername when sending status messages

    When checking status messages for OSD new systems send messages as MININT-XXXXXXX, would be nice if they sent messages as their destined computer name

  16. It would be nice to have a more direct/quicker route to a list of the infected computers when we receive a notification about malware.

    When we receive notifications of malware infections, it's at least a few clicks before we see what has actually been infected. Having this information displayed immediately could help reduce remediation time and potentially prevent an infection from having the time to spread more. This would be especially helpful if we could see more relevant details in the e-mail notification as well.

  17. Enable Alerts function for 'Available' deployments

    Currently you can only configure a compliance alert for a deployment that is Required, this option should be enabled for Available deployments as well for those of us who want to use it.

    There are various scenarios where this might be useful, you may simply want an email notification if no-one is bothering to use software you made available after a month to save you having to check.
    Or due to some internal reason you may not be able to enforce restarts on particular machines and have tasked staff to do it manually, and want a notification if this hasn'tā€¦

  18. Try Again button in Configuration manager Deployment monitoring

    After deployment to a certain machine gets an error that can be dealt with it stays in error tab even after the error cause is fixed. It would be nice to force another try of deployment to a certain machine from Configuration manager.
    i.e Deployment to PC_A fails due to insuficient disk space.
    User free some space on the designated PC.
    PC_A still stays in failed tab in deployment (waits for another automatical try?)
    Admin sees the failed deployment for PC_A in Deployment monitoring "error' tab.
    Admin click on failed deployment of PC_A and chooses 'try again' to force SCCMā€¦

  19. Ability to delete a deployment from the Monitoring node

    It would great to be able to right-click a deployment from Deployments in the Monitoring node ad have the option to delete that deployment. It's a great spot for it since all deployments are listed there.
