  1. Create the abilty to WOL individual or multiple selections and selected device collections.

    WOL should be a basic function in SCCM. You should have the ability to select a single device as well as multiple devices or collections to Wake a system to perform some task like software installation, image deployment, or even establishing a remote session. We are currently evaluating SCCM 1806 and find it discouraging that WOL abilities are not there. Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Pass Return Code Across Dependent Applications

    When installing an Application with dependencies, the ability to capture the dependent Apps return code and then perform a set of actions (run a custom script, additional child dependency, etc.) or have a series of extra settings that can be configured (wait until reboot/logon/additional action complete), would be very helpful.

    For example: AppA has a dependency that will require a reboot but it must be initiated by the user. The ability for the primary App to get that return code and then "Hold until reboot" would be very helpful.

  3. Add ALL reg key types as options in Task Sequence conditions

    In the conditions for Task Sequence steps, the only reg key type you can use the 'exists' or 'not exists' options for is REG_SZ. I would like to see the others REG_MULTI_SZ, REG_EXPAND_SZ, REG_DWORD, REG_QWORD, REG_BINARY. Similarly, when you choose 'equals' or any of the other operators, the only options are REG_SZ, REG_EXPAND_SZ, and REG_DWORD. The other options should be available there as well.

  4. CMCH should be included

    I really canā€™t understand why CMCH isnā€™t bundled with SCCM... does microsoft give us some other proper solutions to remediate client health? https://secureinfra.blog/2019/01/17/system-center-configuration-manager-client-health-toolset-to-identify-and-remediate-client-issues/

  6. Delete Collection UI Issue

    When an administrative user who does not have permission to delete resources tries to delete a collection, the confirmation UI displayed reads as though the resources WILL be deleted due to the missing checkbox. Perhaps changing the UI so that the checkbox is there but grey'd out as unchecked or remove the "Delete each collection member from the database" text.

  7. Automated Client Cache Cleanup (Date Range Option)

    Would like the ability to select a date range in client settings to automatically purge client ccmcache files as well as Endpoint protection/Defender old definition updates. This process should be automated possibly run with ccmeval or the client health tasks. Would prefer not to have to use a third party solution or script.

  8. Management Point Health Alert

    When adding an MP, the box "Generate alert when MP is not health" is never checked by default. Should be checked by default, and why is this even an option? I don't see a scenario where an Admin wouldn't want to know the MP isn't health.

  10. Add "Software Updates Scan Cycle" to the Client Notification Menu

    I'm not sure whether the "Evaluate Software Update Deployments" Client Notificaction runs a previous scan cycle.
    I implemented a Powershell script to do that but I strongly think that it should appear as a Client Notification in the same way it appears in the "Config Manager" Control Panel at the client computers.

  12. Change the sort view behaviour

    When sorting any area alphabetically (or using any other criteria), the view automatically jumps to the top (or bottom). This defeats the purpose of reversing a sort. For example, if I have 2000 objects in the view, and the object I am looking for starts with a "U", it makes sense to reverse the name sort to reverse-alphabetical, however, when I do that it dumps me at the bottom, meaning now I have to scroll *up* through 1800 objects instead of down. Please change this so that when a sort order is called for, the view stays in the sameā€¦

  14. Point and Deploy to Single Machine or small group of machines/users.

    Remove the extra steps to create a collection of one or more existing machines to deploy a program or application or task sequence to.

    When needing to do a small targeted and IMMEDIATE deployment the admin should be able to right click and pick what to deploy and when he hits ok an adhoc collection should automatically be created into a default folder, say call it "Adhoc Collections" which without any keystrokes, mouse clicks or mouse swipes would be created in that folder with a name starting with the date in format YearMonthDay-Hour:Minute:Second-(Package | App Name | Task sequence|)-CreatorName

  15. More robust control of system restart

    Now we have only two parameters for Restart behavior: time to show the first warning and time to show the 'always on top' notification. It would be better if we can configure some user-controllable options. E.g. possibility to postpone a reboot.

  16. Ability to disable alerts on 3rd party products like TrueSight Operations Management

    The ability to disable MOM/SCOM alerting during deployments is nice but having the ability to disable alerting on 3rd party products (like TrueSight Operations Management) would be extremely helpful.

  17. Ability to Lock Client Settings down

    We use SCCM for multiple Tennant customers, each with their own Client Settings. Although we are able to use scopes to lock down other areas to separate the different customers, Client settings is not able to be locked down. Specifically the Default Client Settings... We have issues from time to time where someone accidentally makes the changes in the Default Client Settings instead of their Agency Client Settings which can lead to issues for the whole environment....

    We need the ability to lock down those client settings to keep various customers from changing the wrong Client Settings. As it stands,ā€¦

  18. Wake on LAN should be possible to trigger from the CAS

    It will be a nice thing if the WOL can be done from the CAS based on the site assignment of the client.

  20. MVP-Powershell client settings for software center

    add a new Set-CMClientSetting to customise software center. today the only way is to use the props SettingsXml for SMS_SCI_ClientComp (SoftwareCenter) WMI and create a xml to configure it.
