  1. Available deployment status message once received in software center

    When we do an available deployment for Applications, Packages and Task Sequences in SCCM, we can't get the status of how many machines have received the deployment and made available in software center for the user to initiate.

    It would be helpful if we can get a report for how many machines have got this available deployment in the software center OR if we get a status message in DB to identify how many machines have received the available deployment in software center and waiting for the user's action on it.

    This will help us to create an accurate compliance…

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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 didn’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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                        • The ability to right-click a delopment status and expert results to file

                          After clicking "view status" on a deployment, the ability to export the results for Success, In Progress, Error, and Unknown to a file (like xlsx) would super helpful.

                              • 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.

                                • 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't…

                                  • 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 SCCM…

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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).
