  1. "Enabled" Column Under Collection View "Deployments" Tab for Software Update Deployments

    It would be great to have an "Enabled" column for Software Update deployments under the Device Collection view's "Deployments" tab. Currently, the "Enabled" status is listed when viewing deployments under the Software Update Groups "Deployment" tab, but not the Device Collection "Deployment" tab. Being able to right-click toggle "Enable" / "Disable" for one or more deployments (like the Software Updates view) would also be appreciated.

  2. Add expiration datetime to Software Update Group Deployment

    Add expiration "datetime" to Software Update Group Deployments.

    Once the deployment - based on the expiration date - is expired, the deployment is no longer active.

    Now you have to remove or disable (manual/PowerShell) a deployment if you want to unlink it with the linked collection.

  3. Add a right click option to see what task sequences an Application is associated to.

    Add a right click option to see what task sequences an Application is associated to.

  4. Ability to test settings for deployment notifications

    It would be very helpful to be able to test the configuration for end-user notifications when putting together a software update package or other application deployment. Since there are several configuration settings which can affect what the end-user will see, it would be great if we could visually demo/test the current configuration so we know what the end-user will actually see.

  5. Report to monitor Software Updates states of MULTIPLE SUGs

    Add a Report as Compliant 7 but not only for one SUG but several. When we deploy to computers we deploy montly updates but a old Baseile Aswell, we need to know the status of all of that deployments at once

  6. SCCM 1702

    Let us see the discovery timeframes as an optional column under Administration - Discovery Methods. It'll save the admin time drilling into each discovery method to get the frequency etc. which can be very helpful during troubleshooting.

  7. Deploy meltown/spectre related updates not in Monthly CU

    When a ciritcal patch (ex: spectre/meltdown) is released do not put it in the Monthly CU. But release it as a single KB. The 2018-01 CU's for win10 and 7 are a mess.. Powershell ISE crash with dot net fix, juniper vpn client crashes on win10 with the CU. Give us admins the power to open up a CU and pull a single KB out to avoid issues but still be able to deploy the CU minus that one KB.

  8. Fix Support Center on running app deployment eval cycle remotely

    When Support Center runs App Deployment Evaluation cycle locally, it uses Schedule 121, which is OK. However, when itā€™s connected to remote machine, it uses Schedule 123, which was deprecated at some point.

    Future release of Support Center should always use schedule 121.

  9. Add Description to Distribution Point Configuration Status Screen

    We use the description field to describe where the DP is located in the world, due to our naming convention not containing the location in the asset name . When performing monitoring I'd like to see the description field from the Administration\Distribution Points pane carried through to the Monitoring\Distribution Status\Distribution Point Configuration Status. This would make it easy to see which locations DP has an issue rather then switching to the Administration pane.

  11. Change Client Cache to work like DP SCCMContentLib folder

    Some deployed Applications and/or Packages during their execution modify their working directory (a log file created, new files created/deleted, etc...)
    When that happens, the Peer Cache feature fails because when other devices get a copy they immediately discard it since the copy is distinct from the one defined at the SCCM server. The error message "The hash value is not correct" is registered by the devices that downloaded the modified copy.

    I think the SCCM Client Cache should work like the "SCCMContentLib" folder existing at the Distribution Points, creating a hashed, compressed file for every package file.

  14. Delivery Optimization Boundary Groups

    When working with Delivery Optimization (DO), today DO can't tell the difference between a site assignment Boundary Group (BG) and a content BG. Can DO be setup to have some kind of logic around site assignment and content BGs?

  15. Nested task sequence different user targets

    Presently nested task sequences only run under a single context. There are some workloads that it would be helpful if a child task sequence could run under a different context. For example, the system account of the computer may not have sufficient rights to add an object to an AD group, but capturing administrative credentials and passing to a child task sequence would facilitate this function.

  16. Add User Categories to application list (column and search)

    Would really great addition, if we can have ability to sort and search application based on User Categories. In large organizations where thousands applications exists, using filters in Software Center is only way to make user life easier. However managing categories is really difficult, since we need to actually enter app properties to see what categories are assigned. making exact copy in admin categories is one way to do it, but I don't think admin categories were created to be a shadow copy of user categories.

  20. Add a destination MP option for Pull Distribution Points

    Currently Pull Distribution Points may not be able to report their status to a given Management Point in their site (i.e., a remote site system in a DMZ). To reduce delays, I think a Management Point option should be added for Pull Distribution Points so administrators can choose which MPs a Pull DP reports to instead of having all MPs loaded into the registry (the ManagementPoints string value). The UI could look similar to the "Source Distribution Points" tab within a Pull DP's properties. Multiple MPs could be defined with priorities. If an administrator didn't define this, at least oneā€¦
