  1. Ability to deploy Software Update Groups to User Collections

    It would make sense to have the ability to deploy software update groups to user collections. We have a few different user collections for "pilot" users. When we want to test new software we deploy to these "waves" of pilot users. This gives us the ability to not have to worry about maintaining the users primary device in a device based collection. We have device based affinity within client settings enabled. So if the user ever replaces their pc it gets updated within 48 hrs of system use. This will dynamically keep our pilot list updated. It's a PIA tryingā€¦

  2. Filter EndPoint & Software Updates DataWarehouse report via Collection

    The datawarehouse reports are a welcome addition. However it would be much more useful to be able to filter on collection for the report "Endpoint Protection and software updates compliance - Historical". We could then drill down to collections built on OS Version etc

  3. Add a command line option to Support Center to connect to a remote computer

    The Support Center utility is a great addition but doesn't seem to support specifying a remote computer to connect to from the command line. This would allow it to be called automatically from scripts and other tools.

    This is option is implemented for the remote control viewer by running: CmRcViewer.exe <remote-computer>

    Likewise it would be great to be able to call the Support Center thus:
    ConfigMgrSupportCenter.exe <remote-computer>

  5. Run Scripts: Should be able to invoke from Deployment Status Node

    Run scripts brought a brand new model to handle client troubleshooting, but it can run from collections only.
    it would have been super useful to be able to run it on a machine\category from the Deployment Status node and then maintain clients with in progress \ unknown \ active \ inactive state.
    today when we have a list of computers who didn't report their status we need to manually create a collection with these clients to run a scripts and there's not even a built-in way to create a collection from the asset details

  6. easily add registry changes to deployments and task sequences

    to have an easy to use registry key / value application script builder that could be used to deploy to a collection group or be used in operating system deployment

  7. Task Sequence Import - Mass Overwrite / Ignore

    When importing a TS, and you have multiple dependencies to import with it, would be nice to have a check box to overwrite all, instead of clicking on each one to overwrite, or ignore.

  8. Need SMS Provider class for collection rules

    Currently it is not possible to efficiently query for properties of a collection membership rule. In the SDK the membership rules are a lazy property of the collection and must be retrieved one at a time before they can be tested. This iteration is impossibly slow and inefficient. If there was a SMS_CollectionRule WMI class then one could use a join query to search for Collections based on rule properties. In a real world situation, this would enable tools to quickly select a collection and find which collections it is a member of. This is really needed where collections areā€¦

  9. SCCM IP Address and DNS not updated in real time cause issues at Service Desk

    As users roam from wireless to fixed networks the SCCM ip database is not updating frequently enough with the end user's IP/DNS entry.

    This in turn causes frustration for service desks where they have to ask the customer to obtain their IP address manually.

    Would be great if the remote control tool was able to obtain ip address to as close to real time as possible.

  10. Create a Program by Right-Clicking in Program List, present a drop down menu with actions

    After creating the initial program with the Create Program Wizard you should be able to right-click in the new list of programs (only 1 there initially) and get a drop down menu that has a "Create Program" item. This would avoid the extra mouse swipe to the ribbon to select that function, this would be more intuitive.

  12. more granular control over client settings

    Would it be possible to add more granular control over client settings, for example by incorporating a GPO style Enabled, Disabled, Not Configured function. I particularly find multiple deployments of Computer Agent settings fiddly. Its not the end of the world, its just a bit clunky.

  13. Content Replication

    it would be great if we have an option to redistribute content from Monitoring tab in Distribution point configuration status tab. then it will be so easy to check all failed content and select all and redistribute, rather than go to each content and redistribute.

  15. Select all Apps in a Category in Software Center

    Add a "Select All" when you filter apps by category. This would allow our Accounting users to install ALL of the accounting apps without have to check dozens of boxes.

  17. Next Run Windows Servicing

    In the Windows Servicing Rules window, it would be helpful to see the next scheduled time the Windows Service is supposed to run. If it doesn't have one, then the cell would be blank.

  18. Add IP addresses to SCEP Logs

    In SCEP logs add the option to show the IP address in addition to the hostname.

    This would be beneficial for SIEM tools as you can more easily correlate events between systems as some systems (routers for example) only use IPs and not hostnames

  19. It would be nice to get the ability to do true driver updates from the Software Update Point role instead of trying to deploy the exe.

    It would be nice to get the ability to do true driver updates from the Software Update Point role instead of trying to deploy the exe to actually create a package.

    Allow the drivers check box similar to using WSUS.
    Then allow them to pull down the driver similarly how WSUS handles this mechanism since SCCM is leveraging a WSUS instance to do the other portions of the Software Update Point.

  20. An option to prevent collections from being accidently deleted, like AD ou's.

    An option to prevent collections from being accidently deleted, like AD ou's. It is still to easy to remove a collection. (yes, i am experienced.)
