  1. Add Windows 10 "Version" to the default HINV classes

    The version number of Windows 10 are used by administrators to manage their Windows 10 assets.

    The ReleaseID registry key is the version number.
    If this is added to the HINV list of default classes this will allow for administrators to retrieve this information!

    This is located in: HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    ReleaseID

    This will help administrators differentiate what version of Windows 10 they have install and also support patch management.

  2. Inventory FilePrivatePart in Software Inventory

    In multiple scenario we require to inventory a specific file version using Software Inventory to identify potential threats for instance.
    The file version information reported in the Explorer is different than what we actually inventory with SCCM. Detailled explanation is given here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askpfeplat/2014/12/07/how-to-correctly-check-file-versions-with-powershell/ or https://rohnspowershellblog.wordpress.com/2013/12/16/getting-accurate-file-versions/.
    Great improvement would be to inventory FilePrivatePart as part of the software inventory as well

  3. SCCM disabling BITS throttling policy when client on internet

    We started to use IBCM and realized our policies configuring BITS speed during business hours to protect our internal network are still applied even the client is on Internet. Can this be removed or at least can you add an option to disable the speed limitation when on internet? Thank you

  4. Customize restart pop-up with customized branding like text/message, logo and additional options for end user with extending-options.

    Customize restart pop-up with customized branding like text/message, logo and additional options for end user with extending-options. Would love to see two options when doing a "restart" from the console. One that is quick where it uses predefined message and settings, something generic. And one that is restart advanced where you can customize the message and the time-extending settings.

  6. hardware inventory size

    If Hardware Inventory is limited to the default 5MB MIF File size it likely fails with Asset Intelligence enabled (Recently Used Apps) on a number of clients, because inventory gets too big. Make the client aware of the maximum MIF size (should be configureable in the console, not registry). to not send HWInv, if its clear that it will be dropped. Send Status message indicating that instead. Maybe determine the class causing that (# of instances per class should indicate that easily) and exclude it for affected clients (but send status message warning also). And also do not send deleteā€¦

  8. Identical to the anti-malware policy, configure DirectAccess clients to have the option to download security updates/fixes from Microsoft.

    Identical to the anti-malware policy, configure DirectAccess clients to have the option to download security updates/fixes from Microsoft. This will remove the need to have a cloud DP or CMG be configured just to have the DA clients be updated with security fixes/patches. If this can be tagged against a boundary group or collection that will be great!

  9. Embed the ConfigMgr client components / Intune components in Windows 10

    Embed the ConfigMgr client components / Intune components in Windows 10 to provide the ability and capability of allowing ConfigMgr to also act and become Intune as well. With the Client components/Agents embedded in the desktop OS, the idea is this would allow for enrollment of desktop devices and enrollment of mobile devices providing the same or similar method for enabling management for both desktop and mobile devices. The ConfigMgr/Intune client agent can only be woken up after the installation of a Configuration Manager site is installed in an Active Directory environment. This would ease and simplify client deployment andā€¦

  10. Ability to make some collections as non-deployable

    Ability to make some collections as non-deployable

    In many organizations we deal with, some clients are scared to deploy the SCCM agent to servers such as domain controllers.

    It would be awesome to be able to mark collections, or perhaps records as "non-deployable" - so there is no chance of deploying any application, program, updates etc to the record - only be able to report on it.

  13. Priority system simplified

    Instead of having to right click and each time choose between increase or decrease priority (really boring) why not simply have the choice to indicate the priority we want (like a text box) and let SCCM compute behind the whole priority system to still be compliant

  14. Hardware inventory should include local Administrators members

    I'm surprised this haven't been raised before even do it's used by most companies for auditing purposes.

    Plenty of links on the web that will help you expand the hardware inventory so that it collects members of local Administrators group, but I think this should be present out of the box including a nice report :)

    Would love to see this added to a next version of ConfigMgr

  15. Automated Client Cache Cleanup (Date Range Option)

    Would like the ability to select a date range in client settings to automatically purge client ccmcache files as well as Endpoint protection/Defender old definition updates. This process should be automated possibly run with ccmeval or the client health tasks. Would prefer not to have to use a third party solution or script.

  16. Client Settings Priority - Set value using text input

    My Company has almost 30 client setting profiles. I would like to see the ability of using a text entry box to set the priority of the client settings instead of using the "increase" and "decrease" mouse clicks. When creating a new client settings, it takes too many mouse clicks to get it to the correct priority.

  17. Configuration Client Setting - Turn off Application Website Point

    Since SCCM CB 1806 itĀ“s possible to use Software deployment to user without Application Catalog Website Point.

    In an CAS environment it should be possible to turn off this setting otherwise if one primary server has installed this role, this setting will be setup to AUTOMATICALLY or you can select the server with the role installed.

    This is a problem if you use it in different location with different setup, to turn off brings up more flexibility.

    In my case i must now wait that other regions will remove this role.

  18. Remove the hour/minute option in the software update scan settings or allow an interval of less than a day

    If the minimum interval for the software update scan is 1 day, why give the option to put in hours or even minutes?

    Either remove the option for hours and minutes or allow a more frequent scan than once per day

  19. Computer Restart policy needs more granularity

    Currently running SCCM CB 1806. I would love to see more policy settings for Computer Restart. As of today, we only have a "temporary notification" and a "permanent notification". Below would be nice to have:


    1. Set a time on how long the "temporary notification" displays for the user. The current display disappears way to fast and is not very beneficial to the end user unless they are literally staring at the systray.


    2. Customize the wording for the Restarts


    3. Allow us to enable/disable the Hide or Close button on either the "temporary" or "permanent" notifications


    4. Write to the scnotification log orā€¦
