  1. Content source priority

    With many organizations using few, or single high AD sites, the content source priority is less useful in a lot of situations. As an example: if an organization is spread out across multiple Geo's, and multiple locations within a Geo. They use one AD site per Geo.

    In this situation an organization could not ever utilize Peer Cache as regardless of SCCM boundaries, the AD site takes precedence.

    What would be useful to have is the ability to turn on/off AD sites as being used to find peer sources. And as an extention, the ability to use Peer Cache inā€¦

  2. Task Sequences - Columb for number of deployments

    When in the Configuration Manager console and looking at a folder of Task Sequences (not a specific TS), it would be handy to have a column to show the amount of deployments each TS in the view has - the same as Applications.

    Our organisation constantly updates Task Sequences for deploying OS Upgrades, which are left as enabled but expired and placed in a folder named "Retired". This is to preserve the deployment information in case of future review and/or record keeping. As such, it would be handy to have a column to show the number of deployments a TSā€¦

  3. Ability to create custom alerts

    I would like to have the ability to create custom alerts or have more canned alerts to configure in Configuration Manager CB. Having the ability to be alerted in the event there is an unauthorized deployment would be nice. Also site security alerts if there is an attempt to access higher rights within Configuration Manager CB.

  4. active task view

    Please add a "events" or "task viewer" pane like vcenter does so you can interactively see what the system is doing. Meaning, when you do something like initiate a bunch of client installs, it should show it as a running task with progress bar so you don't have to look at logs to see what it is doing.

  6. Compliant tab

    The COMPLIANT tab needs to get broken into two tabs - one for what other products call "Not Applicable" and the other for "Success". As it is now you cannot look at the COMPLIANT tab and see how many nodes successfully installed updates because they are mingled with ones that did not need the update.

  7. Under Deployments

    Whenever we want to open any deployment we need to see from <monitoring> & search from <deployments>

    Especially which deployments start with the same name but different deployment for such scenario,

    we just need to open 1 by 1 individually that is an only possibility & which just eat more time so instead of that:

    If we can get a quick selection option enabled which can allow us to select deployment at once & can open up to maximum 3 limits together would make our work easier,

    for eg: Just like how we get a new wizard displayed with aā€¦

  8. Add Description to Distribution Point Configuration Status Screen

    We use the description field to describe where the DP is located in the world, due to our naming convention not containing the location in the asset name . When performing monitoring I'd like to see the description field from the Administration\Distribution Points pane carried through to the Monitoring\Distribution Status\Distribution Point Configuration Status. This would make it easy to see which locations DP has an issue rather then switching to the Administration pane.

  9. 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.

  11. SEARCH FOR "ALREADY INSTALLED" APPLICATION BEFORE CHECK FOR REQUIREMENTS

    I have an Application that need so much space, so i set a requirement of 2500 Mb free to start deployment. There can be a situation where the Deployment starts because i have 3000Mb free, AFTER the deployment ends succesfully the residual free space is lower than 2500 Mb. In that case if i monitor the Deploy i see "requirement not met" for this server instead a "Success".. that's wrong!
    SEARCH FOR "ALREADY INSTALLED" APPLICATION MUST BE DONE BEFORE CHECK FOR REQUIREMENTS!!

  12. Software Updates deployment status sometimes do not show up on the Deployment Monitoring tab

    Software Updates deployment status sometimes do not show up on the Deployment Monitoring tab, Application deployments are visible but not software updates deployments. Seems like a bug.

  13. When you target users with an application that requires approval can that be shown in deployment monitoring as Waiting Approval?

    When you target users with an available application that requires approval can that be shown in deployment monitoring as Waiting Approval after users have requested and as Approved once approved?

  14. Monitoring > Deployments - start typing to find a deployment

    Click on a deployment, then start typing to bring you to the deployment you are looking for. When you have hundreds of deployments, it would be nice to type "G" and go to the first deployment that starts with "G".

  18. Enhance temporary nodes when viewing deployments

    Opening Monitoring - Deployments, double clicking a software deployment, takes us to the Deployment Status.
    If i open the Error status tab and double click one of the categories, a temporary node is created, containing the affected computers.
    If the temporary node is left open and i go back to the Error status tab and double click another category, i'm brought back to the same temporary node.
    This is due to the node being limited to the status and not the category.

    I'd like to have the temporary node reflect the category, not just the status.

  19. Customizable Deployment Alerts

    Instead of the threshold for successful deployment(Less than % Success) and Threshold for failed deployment(More Than % Failure).

    Add the ability to select from a list of scenarios:
    Success > 99%
    Success < 50%
    Failure > 10%
    InProgress < 0%

    I would sometimes like to receive an email when the deployment finished with one of those thresholds that provides the report of Success, InProgress, Failures at a specified time after the deployment or end of maintenance window.

  20. Add Summary Statistics to Deployment Status View

    In the main Deployments tab when you select a deployment, it shows a summary of the Completion Statistics [img1]. When viewing the status of that deployment, the pie chart remains but the statistics of each status can no longer be quickly seen [img2]. One has to go into each status tab to view the numbers. -cheers
