  1. Option to completely disable pre-caching /pre-download for clients by collection or boundary

    About half of our employees are field staffers, who often have to cope with bad mobile reception and abysmal bandwidths for days at a time. In such cases the additional load of pre-cached / pre-downloaded software and updates is less than ideal.

    We'd like to be able to disable all pre-loading / pre-caching permanently for those clients to allow the users to decide when to download and install their required software and updates, for example when they are at home or connected to a hotspot at the hotel.

    It would be good if we could deploy the setting to theā€¦

  2. Software Inventory takes couple hours to complete

    Software Inventory Takes Couple hours to complete today. currently we dont use any indexing or search technique to de an incremental search for only files which has been added or deleted based on timestamp. It does a full search every time inventory job runs and it will take similar amount of time every time it runs.

  3. Customize "new software is available" toast message

    Allow custom message on System Tray message, users think this is a malware installed on their computer and generate unnecessary tickets, specially users that do not deal with Software Center, those message should be configure on Client Settings.

  4. Citrix layered non persistent vdi client support

    We have been testing the new Citrix App Layering on non-persistent VDI machines. Basically a layered VDI. So the OS is in one layer and then each application could be in a layer and then the user has their own layer. Everytime a person logs out they release the VM and when they log in they get a different one with all their layers added.
    What we have seen is that this throws the CM Client completely out of whack. To the point that on one machine SCCM had one SMSGUID, WMI on the machine had a different SMSGUID, andā€¦

  7. Client Proxy / Network Tab CMG

    With the addition in 1902 to be able to add a CMG to a boundary group, it would be nice to also have the client proxy settings from the Network tab to work when a device is on the Intranet but connected to the CMG. From testing it appears this configuration is only used when the client is on from Internet. But for customer's that want to use CMG for Slow Link Remote Offices they may also have a Proxy they have to connect through.

    Also would be nice if you could specify the Proxy setting with the client installā€¦

  9. Customize reboot window for Feature Update different from Software Update

    It would be interesting to have a reboot message custom for the feature update different from the patch (software update), with different colors and message, so that users recognize the message and understand that you are installing the system update operational and it will take a little longer to install.

  11. Fix naming inconsistencies

    Software Updates Deployment Evaluation Cycle and Schedule deployment re-evaluation are the same thing so the client action name should align with the client setting to avoid confusion.

    I think it's best to gather all other naming issues in a single thread. Feel free to add yours!

  12. Client Settings Apply Button

    Client Settings should have an apply button to prevent loss of work and to conform to standard UI patterns.

  13. Bitlocker (MBAM) Anti-Tamper

    As Bitlocker / MBAM is being fully integrated into SCCM, it would be useful to add an Anti-Tamper option so that end users with Admin Access are unable to remove Bitlocker Protection / Encryption without either a password (potentially similar to a recovery code from MBAM portal), or being granted access via SCCM with a new role.

    This would also potentially need to be expanded to the Client so that it isn't possible to remove the client, and then the protection.

  15. ability to modify the software center toast notications in configmgr as per the Organisation requirement

    Every organization will have their own way to convey the message to their end point users with Software updates/Application install or OSD upgrades.

    So Organization can be given opportunity to amend these notification s as per the requirement.

    can this be verified and implemented.

  16. BranchCache

    Could we please have more granular controls of BranchCache - as an example we have a mixed environment with a lot of laptops - it would be useful to exclude laptops from BranchCache (perhaps via WMI query on battery present), but include the PC's and Servers. We have had to turn BranchCache off because of the impact it was having on our SQL server, which has now seen our network traffic increase as well as load on our DP's.

  17. Ability to inventory machines with multiple IPs

    hardware inventory not able to collect the details for "Network_Data" from the clients when the machine has multiple IPs,

    The IPAddress00 field is defined as varchar(255), the field length prevents us from collecting all the IP details when the combined length of IP addresses in that machine exceeds 255.

    thanks.

  18. ccm client powershell to install available updates

    Have a small powershell module to support client actions. Currently installing available updates on a machine running Core windows server OS is not simple to action. Having this option to triger client actions from on the client. Having PS Module available to trigerthis and other actions would be useful.

  19. Custom Client setting allows creating shared folder on a device, like SCCM Client log folder

    Enterprise security policy may block C$ share. File collection targeted to a collection may be also prohibited due to network traffic concern. It is troublesome to analyze sccm client log file for troubleshooting remotely even the support has local administrative right on the PC, as it requires to re-create the C$ share first, and unshare it later. It would be nice to also have an option to copy certain OS files to this share, for example, windowsupdate.log. RBAC should govern who can create the share and who can control the file copy list. This should make supporting SCCM environment easierā€¦

  20. Default Settings/Computer Restart

    Can you intregrate 2 dialogue box for message customization for user notification for both cases : Temporary notification and cannot close.
    The Organization will be able to customize these messages for end users for better communication during updates.
