  1. 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…

    • Rework the Asset Message Pane

      Especially when I am testing a Task Sequence Deployment, I like to check the status messages that the SCCM Site receives from the clients.
      Much easier to see steps and associated exit codes than waiting for the build to finish and trawling the log file.

      Monitoring>Deployments>(Deployment)>In Progress>(Machine)>More Details> Status

      The only problem with it, is that the actual dialog box that pops up has no window controls, so you have to drag the edges to read the info, and more often than not when you hover over the message so you can read it, it closes after a couple of…

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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!!

                    Ver SCCM 1810

                    • 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.

                        • 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?

                          • 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".

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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
