    • Add options to control power management by days of the week

      Add options to control power management by days of the week.

      For example our organizations peek hours would be between 7am and 5pm M-F, it would be great to put all the PC's in a power saving mode all day Sat. and Sun.

      • filter Surface devices dashboard on specific collections

        The new Surface devices dashboard looks great. It will be nice to custom it with specific collections like the office 365 client management dashboard

        • Provide Reporting Data for OneDrive Known Folder Move Calculation

          In 1902 TP you are able to apply a Known Folder Move policy to sync the sccm client agent with OneDrive. Specifically the Desktop, Pictures and Documents folders. it would be great if we had a report that provided us with the Individual size of each folder and the cumulative size of all three. This would allow administrators to assess and plan their upload strategies accordingly.

              • Migrate approval requests between applications

                Problem: When an application has "require approval" enabled we get a long list of users or devices where this application is approved for. But when I add a new application and delete the old, I loose all approvals! And the users need to request again.

                This is a problem in multiple cases:
                1) Example 1: We have an application in version 1.0.1 that and get a new version 1.0.2 I want to make a new application and test this. When it is tested I want to turn on "superceede" and then remove the old application. The license is still valid…

                  • Add Specific Permissions for Managing 3rd Party Updates

                    I would like to see specific permissions for adding/managing a 3rd party software update custom catalog as well as a specific permission to "Publish third-party software update content".

                    In our multi-tenancy ConfigMgr environment we have lots of different organizations using the same instance and being able to limit this functionality to just the top-level administrators will prevent hundreds if not thousands of unnecessary updates from being published.

                    • Add a command line switch that can be ran remotely to set computer as primary for end user. The Web link works OK but a lot forget it

                      Add a command line switch that can be ran remotely to set computer as primary for end user. The Web link works OK but a lot of techs and end users forget to set the machine.

                      I've scripted opening the Web portal but if I'm not setting up the PC other techs forget.

                      • Shorten Endpoint Protection column titles in results pane

                        In the SCCM Admin Console it would be nice to have shorter names for the column titles. Specifically the Endpoint Protection Definition columns.

                        I often setup Endpoint Protection Definition Last Version / Last Update Time/ Last Full Scan End Time

                        These take up a lot of room and require scrolling. It would be nice to abbreviate Endpoint Protection Definition to EP Def.

                            Updating status to Noted

                            Hi. Support for Windows 10 was added in our 1511 release back when Windows 10 was released. As well as the same Build, Capture, Deploy we’ve had for all previous Windows versions we added a new In-place Upgrade task sequence template and step

                            https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/deploy-use/scenarios-to-deploy-enterprise-operating-systems

                            Is there a gap in the functionality you’re seeing or something else – let us know, we’d like to address your ask and help you with deploying Windows 10.

                          • Only suppress restart when there is a user logged on

                            In a WSUS-only environment you can with the GPO "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations" instruct the WUA to only force a restart if no one is logged on. Being a 365/7/24-site this functionality is a the top of the wish list for CM.

                                • Improvement of Application Delete check

                                  When you want to delete an application, here are the checks that is done :

                                  1.Number of dependent applications
                                  2.Number of active deployments
                                  3.Number of dependent task sequences
                                  4.Number of virtual environments
                                  5.number of settings

                                  That's is all good, but one point has been forgotten: Supersedence.

                                  Currently it is possible to delete an application even it is in supersedence chain. Which is not very good. If you let an applications in supersedece chain to get delete then in supersedece tab you have something like :

                                  ScopeId_xxxxxx/Application_xxxx

                                  And this confuses the client when it comes to install this application.

                                  Would be…

                                  • Offer a re-download option for updates in an existing package.

                                    When a package is out of sync and it wants a folder that is not on your server anymore. Offer a re-download option for updates or a reset counter for the updates in the package to not downloaded so it can download the a updates again and replicate.

                                    • Keep Previous Version of Content available while Distributing

                                      Currently, when content for an OS Image, Package, Application, etc is being updated, that object is unavailable until the content update completes. This means that content updates for large items must be timed very carefully, especially when sending to remote sites.

                                      It would be amazing if a Distribution Point could keep the previous version of the item available while the content is updating, then switch to the new content and delete the old after it's completed.

                                      • Add link to Component Status description errors

                                        When reviewing Component Status error messages the description field is often vague and leaves one guessing as to what the issue really is. Would be nice if MS could add a link to description field or another area that would point to specific and relevant information.

                                        • Console behavior after reconnecting to the network

                                          After you reconnect to the network, the console stops to work correctly.
                                          Some functions works without issues, other's don't, for example looking up a user in "assets and compliance", and clicking "Primary device" wont return the the actual device, but goes into "Devices" view displaying all the devices. Other functions may result in error messages. A simple restart of the console does fix this, not a big deal, but sometimes a bit of an annoyance if it happens when you creating a new deployment or doing some larger task.
