  1. WinPE boot verbose

    It would be nice if we could boot in WinPE with verbose, sometimes when we boot, the computer hang and we cannot see where the problem is located. This feature could be turned on just like "enable F8 for command prompt"

    • Possibility to reduce SMSbackup database size

      Is it possible to provide another option to back up SCCM database during SMSBackup so that the database size can be reduced?

      • Conditional Access based on the latest Windows 10 build

        You should be able to create a conditional access rule that only the computers with the latest Windows 10 build can access corporate resources.

        The latest version is required because it might introduce new security features or some other functionality.

        • Improve and Automate the Content Cleanup Tool

          The original UV item for the content cleanup tool was closed when 1702 was released. However, that item has several suggestions for improvement that were not implemented:

          Handle in-process or failed content. This can quickly become a catch-22 where content is failing because a lack of disk space. In process I understand, but if content failed then an option to force it anyways and remove any content not tied to a valid package.

          Support cleanup of the site server's content library.

          Minimize the rights needed to run the tool. Currently, the tool requires 'Full Administrator' which seems overkill. Why would…

          • I would be nice if in the Devices view there was an option to display the currently logged on user and the IP of the device

            I would be nice if in the Devices view there was an option to display the currently logged on user and the IP of the device so that I would not have to run a query all the time to get that information.

              • Improve reliability and performance of Pull Distribution Points

                Pull DP's are a great idea, however they are quite error prone and often just stop working. Search in any Configuration Manager forum for Pull DP's and you will see the same thing over and over, which is they often get stuck at "downloading content" and the only way to rectify it is to uninstall/reinstall the pull DP.

                As I said, I really like the idea of Pull DP's. But I would like to see the product team spend some more time on them to really get them working as efficiently and effectively as possible.

                • Add Software Update Point and last Software Scan Time to Client Activity within Devices on the Summary Tab

                  On the Client Activity column of a device details on the Summary tab in the console please add two items.

                  1) Last Software Update Scan / Evaluation
                  2) Software Update Point

                  This provides parity with the already existing Management Point information and last HINV and SINV scan times that are displayed. As a bonus maybe even throw in how many Missing Updates the device needs. :)

                  • Updates and servicing should honor file replication schedule

                    With 1702 was a 1gb download, secondary sites over a sat link were congested beyond their transfer windows. It would great if the next distribution used both binary differencing as well as honoring the replication schedule

                    • under software updates a custom column to set a flag if update is flawed

                      nice to have a self-defined column under SoftwareLibary-SoftwareUpdates-all Software Updates to mark for yourself whether an update is flawed or not. for example, set a flag (red, yellow, green)

                      • Add "color" (i.e. error level) filtering to cmtrace

                        I open cmtrace for one reason: to find the red lines. Just thinking about opening a log file and dragging the scroll bar around triggers my carpal tunnel.

                        Please add a button to quickly toggle between showing "all", "only errors (red)", and "only warnings and errors (yellow and red)".

                        The logic (however rudimentary it may be) is already there. This is really only a (huge quality of life) GUI/view change.

                          Why are the Windows 10 build upgrades under the UPGRADES classification, but called "Feature UPDATES" and listed in the "All Windows 10 UPDATES"?

                          • Remember selected option for All Subfolders in Search

                            There was a uservoice that requested when searching in the console that All Subfolders be automatic. This request is now set to complete as of March 2017 however the functionality is still not automatic and does not remember as you move through the console.

                            https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8342127-automatically-search-all-sub-nodes

                            Having the ability for this to be remembered or the ability to set this as default under search settings would reduce the constant need to select All Subfolders when searching and switching between different views in the console.

                              • Easy copy or transfer of software update files between deployment packages

                                Sometimes, a software update needs to be copied or moved from one deployment package to another. This is especially useful for keeping deployment packages smaller and more efficient when using Automatic Deployment Rules (ADR). Currently, updates always need to be re-downloaded from the internet or a source location. This is inefficient and can be time consuming as well.

                                  add an option for the resultant client settings that are applied, and not what supposed to be applied, like GPO has for group policy resultant. The existing resultant client settings is more like the group policy modeling.

                                      • Configuration Baseline: To execute in user context

                                        Currently Compliance Baseline can only run in System Context but it can't run in user context. Can we please have this feature in Configuration Baseline?
