    • Browser plugins

      If a plug in is needed for a webpage and it is not installed on the machine redirect the user to the Application Catalog instead of the vendor site. For example, user needs Flash, the page prompts the user to install Flash and directs them to the App Catalog. Do not know if this it technically possible but would be neat. Especially if it worked with all browsers.

      • Be able to Set autologon during TS for Kiosk PCs

        Hello,

        It would be wonderful if we could set Autologon during task sequence since we can create really nice provisinog package from ADK and use DISM during WinPe to set assigned access to a certain account and app.

        It would be awesome if we could somehow stop SCCM to remove autologon when TS is completed so we dont have to create workarounds after the TS is completed.

            • error code

              When an application deployment fails from Software Center, it allows you to click "More Information". The information that is provided is just an error code, which is fine, but at least a generic description would be appreciated. I have to go and search for that code on a Microsoft page anyways, why not add it in for both myself and the end users from the start. Save some time for simple issues like, content is not available at your distribution point and such.

              • Full Task Sequence support through Cloud Management Gateway

                Please add full Task sequence support in CMG. I have many software titles that require Task sequence vs app/package to deploy successfully so I am "stuck" on IBCM.

                Support for Windows 10 Feature Update TS was added in 1802 per https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/32436910-task-sequence-deployment-through-cloud-management and is in the docs at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/clients/manage/cmg/plan-cloud-management-gateway however other TS scenarious is not supported.

                • Improve Task Sequence selection, hide testing task sequences, user based policy availability

                  we have 10 Task Sequences accross 10 countries, and 10 test task sequences that show up in the same list. It would be nice to be able to easily hide deployments that are only for testing, and not production. If at the beginning of a T.S. , user domain credentials could be entered, and that would determine T.S. availability. Or they could be greyed out if not to be run by that user.

                    • sccm/wsus

                      I feel that sccm/wsus requires a lot of improvements:

                      1 - software update detections should be improve to analyze and detect missing/required updates
                      2- software updates installation should be install in sequence not on which deployment reaches first. should be a way to modified the install base on date and time.
                      3- a better scheduling for the deployment that will allow the updates to be install during a flexible time and another for the downloading of the patches
                      4- bring back the use of restart and update, or shutdown and update, this were very useful

                      I still feel that the…

                      • Add .exe installers to the list of application templates

                        Instead of using script install for a .exe file make a separate one that can read the exe file just like it does the MSI file. Also when you click on the script installer have it look for Powershell or VBS or HTA scripts and not .exe files.

                          Jumping back and forth between UI's in Console is inefective. Memorize some of the few places an admin uses the most and stick those places to the side of the ConfigMgr Console like favorites. Came from SCUGno Oktober Meeting 2018

                            It would be great if we could exclude certain OS's from discovery. I have over 5500 machines in my DB that I couldn't care less about but they reside in an OU where I have machines I do care about.

                                Add a fourth stage (ConfigMgr - Intune Pilot - Cloud Users - Intune) "Cloud users" in the Co-Management GUI.
                                Companies might have many users who can be Intune managed without having to be part of the pilot collection or having to wait for the entire organization to move to Intune.

                                  I often find myself having to create reports instead of filtering and sorting devices when I have to find ie old os build in specific OU.
                                  So why not make available custom columns! If not possible I need OU information to sort and filter by!

                                    Task Sequence Deployments - Immediate Push Failure - Computer Policy initialization from Console.

                                    Forcing a computer policy against a deployment of a Task sequence (any) to run via Software Center, results in failure of downloading of the deployment policy the first time and goes in retry until the agent on the endpoint initiates a polling itself. While SCCM CB is supposed to be user centric and based on Pull methodology, sometimes a deployment needs to be pushed to users immediately and the current behavior causes lot of inconveniences and delays in deploying Task sequence based installations via Software Center (Immediate…

                                    • Show update size in the console

                                      Make it possible to see update size in the console appropriate field which is always empty as of now. The only one way to see update size is by clicking out each update and checking "Content Information" tab.

                                      • MVP-Allow an app through controlled folder access

                                        the endpoint protection should have a new malware policy that will allow a central management of the windows defender security center - ransomware protection - allow an app through controlled folder access, allowing the IT admin to add/remove controlled folder access (and maybe give the user access to add extra files whenever required, but allow the IT admin to decide)

                                        • Telemetry or Management Insights which USMT store roaming client is going to use

                                          I would like to se some telemetry / insights where client is going to push its USMT data before deployment starts. Need to know if disk space is sufficient on USMT stores.

                                          As clients roam the network, I cannot predict where yesterday's clients are going to push their USMT data today when deployment starts.
