  1. 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€¦

  2. 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.

  6. Deployment End Time

    It would be wonderful to have a deployment End Time to match the Deployment Start time for active or past deployments. This would allow a quick reference to see when deployments have started and ended.

  7. Deployments section could include Packages and not just Applications.

    Just a thought but Applications has a nice deployments section where you can easily see how the deployments have gone. Packages on the other hand doesn't have this convenience and you need to pull up reports to get some quick insight.

  8. Overview status of all deployments for a single device/user

    We have the ability to monitor the Status of a single deployment. It would be very helpful if we can monitor the Status of all deployments of a single device/user.

    Clicking the device/user in Monitor-Ribbon it Shows all deployments which are deployed to the item and shows the current Status for each deployment. It would makes Monitoring much easier in Troubleshooting Case when a certain device/user ist effected.

  9. Be able to create a device collection from a SUP deployment in Monitoring for non-compliant machines

    In monitoring be able to create a device collection from the In-Progress tab for machines that are non-compliant or failed the deployment in order to run the same deployment again, but only for machines that failed or need to be run again for whatever reason (maintenance window expired).

  10. i could able to pull or copy the machine

    In Deployment monitoring on the "Asset details" column

    i am able to select single pc to see the error details but unable to copy the content from the console its read-only i believe probably you should make some changes
    so, we can live information can be copied in detailed to excel or either live import present data to have it in single sheet as bulk.

    so my suggest is :- if we get an option enabled to copy whole should not be read-only the information from the Asset details column
    it may be falls under "Compliant\In-progress\Error\Unknown" column

    so, with thisā€¦

  11. Outstanding Windows updates

    Show windows updates outstanding with the computername and allow right click and install missing update.

    currently its a painful and very time consuming excercise checking to see what update isn't installed, creating a collection, adding computer to collection and deploying update package.. we got over 6000 devices so can imagine the time and effort to manage monthly updates.
    Kaspersky got it right but company doesn't want to pay the licensing cost

  12. Fix Software Update/Deployment Compliance Percentages in Reports/Console

    When looking at deployment compliance reports for Software Deployments, Software Updates, etc. The Percent Compliant is not accurate.

  13. Custom Error Codes for Chained Programs

    Instead of "failing" and stop running on all non-zero return codes, allow acceptable return codes to determine if the install sequence fails or continues. Example, uninstall an MSI to be sure it's not there but if it's not, generates a 1605 return, yet this is really a soft error which we currently have to use a BAT or VB script so we don't get a "failure". It should be up to the engineer to determine what is and is not a "failure". Of course, out of the box any non-zero should continue to be a failure.

  14. More Detailed Deployment status View

    For monitoring deployment of OSD , it would be better if the detailed status /dashboard is available in Console with status details of steps in task sequence.

  15. SCCM report in more detail (Software, OSD Deployment)

    Micosoft should display the error report in more detail in the SCCM console "Deployment Monitoring". Today you usually see an error code that can have several meanings. The goal should be to analyze the logfiles directly on the SCCM console, without 3rd party Tools, CMTRACE, etc.

  16. Add Delay Counts to Deployment Status

    Under Deployment Status, you have the basic tabs Success, In Progress, Error, Requirements Not Met, and Unknown. When an application delays installing due to selections in the deployment settings (i.e. "Delay enforcement of this deployment according to user preferences, up to the grace period defined in client settings") these return codes are shown as "Errors" in the deployment. This can throw off numbers in regards to how successful a deployment is. In the cases of a delayed deployment, SCCM hasnā€™t even tried to install the application, so why is that counted as an error? The proposal here is to createā€¦

  17. Please, add field "Domain" or "FQDN " in Asset Details in Deployment Status

    Hi team,
    Our company has multi domain environment (over 50 domains).
    I want to deploy new application. I create collections for first domain, then for second domain. And last collection consists of computers from 47 domains. When deployment of application failed on last collections i can see in asset details only NETBIOS name of servers. I want to see FQDN name or domain name too there and use group by function.

    https://monosnap.com/file/H3mpt3104uUYg8E6MTQsKjObMo0Msx

  18. Application file detection in user environement

    Today, we can deploy an application into an user profile (Ex : %appdata%; but it's not possible to check the file as a detection method.

    Unfortunatly SCCM isn't able to find a file into a user environement.

  19. Allow number criteria to be integer

    Currently filtering on 'number errors' expects kind of string value to be filtered on. Better would be equals, not equals, greater than, less than.

  20. Historical State Messages

    I love status messages and the new state message system is a step backwards. I have no historical data for troubleshooting purposes. If I create a new revision of an application and deploy it, does it have a higher success rate than a previous revision? No clue.

    Also, I don't like that state messages are removed for deleted deployments. I want to know what deployment ran on what machine, regardless of if the deployment still exists or not. How do I know what was installed on one machine if the deployment is removed?

    There are a ton of instances whereā€¦
