  2. Internal feedback through Software Center

    When using Phased Deployments, the only trigger to move to the next phase at the moment is compliance from an installation perspective only, which doesn't tell you anything about the functionality/performance of a device or application after the update or the app got installed. It just checks whether it installed successfully.

    So it would be great if there would be some kind of feedback option in the Software Center directly (e.g. under Installation Status) where a user could click on "Report an issue with this app/update", or hit a frowny face which triggers a bug report or something.

    Then you…

  3. Remove obsolete/redundant adverts/deployments

    Machines are often removed from software deployment collections, either that they were added by mistake in the first place or they have genuinely been removed for a particular reason. I have found that even though a machine has been removed from a collection the advert/deployment for that machine is still kept in the dbo.vSMS_ClientAdvertisementStatus table. In view of this the built in reports are not as accurate as they should be because they are tied in to this table containing obsolete data. Is it possible that when a machine is removed from a collection its corresponding advert for that collection…

  4. Improve Accuracy of Long Standing Deployment Status in the Console

    Following an upgrade/recovery of my SCCM environment, older Software Update Deployments exhibited a problem where a small subset of previously patched systems started showing up as Unknown. Following a rather long diagnostic process, it appears as though these older deployments are being Evaluated as a matter of routine process, but are missing state messages on affected clients for the Enforcement or Compliance of the deployment. These software updates had been previously installed, so no new enforcement message would be sent without an addition of an update to the Update Group, and the messages previously sent in the database were not…

  5. Collect success and failure for deployments using the Cloud Management Gateway and Cloud DP

    We have deployed the Cloud management gateway and Cloud Distribution Point into Azure. We cannot collect successful deployment information from these resources in any meaningful way. It would be great to get metrics such as number of successful Windows Update deployments or Software deployments via the cloud or distribution point usage via the cloud. Currently when I add the Outbound Data Transfer column for Cloud DP it is blank which I know is false due to seeing the traffic for our Cloud DP in the Azure logs.

  6. Can you put in all the fail safes when creating a deployment to all apps not just for deploying a Task Sequence?

    Have the fail safe that are built in to when deploying a Task Sequence come up when setting up any deployment. Such as the check boxes when you are going over 100 targets in a collection that pops up, ect..
    Thx

  8. Export Asset Message

    When looking at the Asset message - Action Output it disappears after a few seconds? allow the Asset message to be exported so you look at the action output in more depth based on the exit code.

  9. Add deployment status of waiting for Maintenance Window

    It would be beneficial to show how many clients are waiting for a maintenance window to start the given deployment. Possibly on the "In Progress" tab. Would also be nice to show which maintenance window it is waiting for.

  10. In Monitoring/Deployments filters don't stick

    We have dozens of software updates going on around the clock, frequently I filter on time frames in the deployment names ( since we can't do time ranges on the filter just days we add deployment times to the names of the deployments ) and when we drill down on the deployment to look at status ( these are monthly MS patching ) and then go back to main monitoring view we have to redo the filter.

    I would like to pin the current filter as the default so it stays that way until I clear the filter

    Would also…

  11. Deleting Multiple Failed Content from DP

    Deleting Multiple Failed Content from DP.IT became tedious process to delete multiple unwanted/failed content from DP.Show Failed Sucess status of Content in DP Properties(under Administrator). This will help admin to sort out failed packages and choose it in bulk for deletion from Specific DP

  12. 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 TS…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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 a…

  17. 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.

  18. Include sw packages installed for client in sccm database

    Include sw packages installed for any client in the database to make collections with specific sw installed or not installed, I think may be very usefull to know the status of a deployment in two or more phases.

  19. Dynamic line numbering in Task Sequence
