    • double notification from Office 365 updates

      I would like to make the double notification optional when deploying Office 365 updates from SCCM. When the deployment has a deadline, SCCM client seems to be adding a reg key that is recognized by Office 365 client. Couple hours before the deadline, there is a notification coming from Office 365 C2R. If an user shutdown the machine before deadline, the user will see multiple notification from both O365 or SCCM next day. The order is kind of random. Worst case the Office 365 update reminder still shows after the update being applied by SCCM, because it passed the deadline…

      • change

        1. Phased deployment should be extended to all deployments [application, package, patch] and not limited to only TS
        2. real-time monitoring of OS migration and upgrade
        3. Extend the feature that is available in 1802 for dashboards to displays a list of relevant devices when graph sections are selected for all dashboards
        4. Reboot management - need better control and customization. Enterprise look at giving more options to users. Similar to allowing IT admin customize the software center, reboot option should also be allowed for customization by IT.

        • ON-OFF switch for the encryption function

          Make an adjustment in the system settings to allow - or disallow the encryption of the harddisk. That way ransomware couldn't do any damage to user data anymore

          • Server Groups - Non Clustered Servers

            Can we increase the functionality of the Server Groups feature on collections to allow us to control non-clustred servers

            For example, when patching I have a collection for Hyper-V hosts, but want to ensure that onyl one Host is down at any one time, and not all of them at once!

            • Instant Membership Updates

              When techs. add a machine to a collection for deployment, it takes a while for the machine to show up. The only way to speed up this process is to update the "All Systems" membership and the applicable membership of where the machine is. Can there be a way to make this process more responsive?

                  • Choose subfolder when creating a new collection from the right-click menu

                    When you use the right click menu to add a user or device to a new collection (which opens the wizard to create a new collection), it defaults to the root collection node. We manage our collections with multiple folders and sub-folders, and it would make management easier if we could change the location where the new collection will be created instead of tracking it down after creation and manually moving it to the desired location.

                      • I have a suggestion for the SMSSLP parameter and registry key.

                        I was investigating the registry Key SMSSLP under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CCM.

                        Most of my computers have a decommissioned Management Point in this Key. As far as I can tell this won’t have any effect. But this is confusing when troubleshooting client problems.

                        After some experiments these are my conclusions:
                        • The key is filled in when you use SMSMP=… as parameter for ccmsetup.exe.
                        • The key is read when you start ccmsetup.exe and then added to the command line as SMSSLP=…
                        • You can only change the key by adding SMSSLP=… yourself to the command line. (Or edit the registry of course.)

                        • Provide Dynamic Application Install Support for task sequences for re-imaging

                          Say you are re-imaging a machine which is assigned to multiple collections for applications which have been installed in the past.

                          It would be nice to see a feature to find out why collections the computer is part of during the re-image to reinstall those applications.

                          Otherwise you have to wait until the re-image has completed then allow the policies to kick in then they install which delays returning the machine to a user.

                            • Non Matching Custom Port DP Sharing/Migration Support

                              Would like to see the product support moving from a 2012 hierarchy which is using custom ports for client communication and IIS bindings, into a CB hierarchy that is using default ports. My understanding is that both environments need to match exactly from a port perspective and we have over 400 remote DP's that will need to be removed manually from SCCM 2012, reimaged and then redeployed as remote DP in CB all over slow links. We have no internet connectivity options for a cloud DP scenario in these location (like China). This will significantly delay our migration globally to…

                                Often times I need to kick off multiple scripts at the same time/in the same time frame. Currently, that means I need multiple console sessions open to accomplish this.

                                It would be great if I could start multiple scripts in the same console.

To avoid this scenario, we would recommend to have a validation point like few others which we have in queue(Already queued in v_MIG_MigratedDPs table or if it has roles more than DP like SUP or MP) There should be an additional validation if it's enabled as Pull DP, then console should not allow anyone to perform DP reassignment by showing error like "The DP you are trying to reassign has enabled with Pull DP, Try removing Pull…

                                    • Software Center customization for USERS

                                      In future development, could you consider expanding this option?.

                                      Also, it would be nice to be able to differentiate applications deployed to Users vs. Computers from within Software Center. One thing I miss about the old Software Center is it only showed advertisements to Computers, and you had…

                                        • Select modeled apps in Applications tab for Windows 10 VPN profile

                                          This is a DCR proposed by a customer through a different channel that I'm porting here. The description provided is: "The current VPN Profile Applications tab [for Windows 10 VPN profiles] currently only allows an application file path and extension or a package family name for a universal app. It would be nice if there were an option to point to a list of modeled Applications in Configmgr that you could select. That way the Applications can be bound to currently managed Applications in ConfigMgr"

                                          If this is important to you, please vote this up!
