  1. Custom Client Settings Configuration Deployable to a User-Based Collection

    At present, there is no option for deploying a custom client settings configuration to a user-based collection. Can you make this available? Afterall, a user-based collection is really a workstation based collection based on the particular users involved. I've needed to set custom restart deferral configs for a particular app deployment that i'd like to target users with, but I don't have this option as a custom client settings config can only target workstation based collections.... whats up with that? :)

    • Provide more easily found lists of status codes

      Hey Microsoft,
      Why is it so bloody difficult to find lists of things like, I don't know, Status Codes, Detailed Status or whatever you want to call it. You have all sorts of "codes" listed in different locations but nothing easily located to identify what each of those mean. I shouldn't have to waste a day Googling just to try and find an answer for something like "What is requested status of 105 mean?". It should just be there. COMPLETELY leaving alone having a completely different data header in SQL versus what you display via the console, how's about knockingā€¦

          • maintenance window and computer restart notification time preventing reboots

            It seems that if you set a client notification time in Computer Restart client policy that exceeds the maintenance window on a collection then the devices in that collection will never force a reboot with a user logged on.

            It would be nice if it gave the user the notification window but when the maintenance window comes around for the 2nd time and a reboot has not been done then the installation would happen at the start of that maintenance window.

              • Switching Connection Type should be easier

                As far as I know, the only way to change a clients connection type to "Always Internet", "Always Intranet" or to a switching Connection Type (Currently Intranet/Currently Internet), is by re-installing the client. How nice would it be if we could control this setting without having to re-install the client.

                  • Allowing the windows installer file to be elsewhere in the sources subdirectory

                    Actually the MSI is located in the root of the source file then SCCM will be able to detect it only at the root of the source file. But if the msi is Under another directory why not be able to set that localtion?

                    • better driver and driver pack updates

                      Consider this scenario: you have 2 hardware models (eg. Lenovo X1 Yoga and Lenovo X1 Carbon); you download the SCCM driver pack for both models and import them into SCCM.
                      When you import a driver pack you add a category to identify the model that belongs to.
                      After you complete the import process for both driver packs you recognize that some drivers are in use by both models.
                      So at the end you will have:
                      - drivers used by model A only
                      - drivers used by model B only
                      - drivers used by both model A and B

                      • See software update download date in Console

                        is it possible to see the Software update download date in console?

                        i mean when a KB is revisited or bug fixed but keep the same name it's good to know if i donwloaded the previous version or the revisited one.

                        then i can see if i need to redownload the kb or not

                          • Add log file information when opening a log in CMTrace

                            It would be great to see a tooltip or option in the cmtrace toolbar to get more details about a log file. For example when opening EPCtrlMgr.log I see a tooltip with the description of the log file "Records information about the syncing of malware threat information from the Endpoint Protection site system role server with the Configuration Manager database."

                              • Allow multiple versions of the console to be installed

                                Allow multiple versions of the Admin Console to be installed and used on a single system.
                                In environments where multiple hierarchies are in use not all will be on the same version. This forces the use of multiple systems with the corresponding console version for remote management or the use of a down level console when only a single system is available.

                                  Great work on the improvements on the new software center ā€“ especially the next available Maintenance Window ā€¦ but ā€¦ why stuff it under need a tab and then a subtab ?

                                  A few reasons why I want it in the top right corner :

                                  1. I really think an end user is not going to drill down to the tab below to find the info. The user and helpdesk really want to see it when they open software center . What is going on in detail , can be found under a subtab for all I care .
                                  2.ā€¦

                                  • Maintenance Windows using the option to fire on the last given day of a month (last monday, last friday, etc) are incorrectly scheduled

                                    Create a new maintenance window.

                                    Ie, Feb 1, 2019 is a Friday, so schedule for the last Friday of the month with an effective date of 1/1/2019

                                    Turn on the UTC option and set the start and end time to 1:01 AM-3AM. Make sure your client is in UTC-X where X is large enough to cause the start time to be on the previous day. My client was in Centralā€¦

                                      • Selected Client Setting is Lost when Changing Priority

                                        If you sort and then re-prioritize a given client setting it does not maintain the selection. So if you want prioritize something multiple times you need to re-select it every time.

                                        • Add operating system architecture as column to Device Collection

                                          Add operating system architecture as column to Device Collection to have a better overview during Windows 10 rollout from x86 to x64.
