  2. Location information in Desktop Analytics

    The information in the three Windows Analytics solutions (Update Readiness, Device Health, Compatibility Assessment) can be combined to accurately identify the location of enrolled devices. This information can be used as an input to triage problems (is an issue limited to a network, site, region, or global?), preempt performance and capacity concerns (is there a trend in devices in a particular location?), and manage security (are devices where we expect them to be?).

    This information does not yet appear to be in Desktop Analytics. Could you please add this information?

  3. Show who created a deployment

    A column for the creator of a deployment would be extremely helpful. With 15 admins in my environment, I have no idea who's creating deployments without digging in logs.

  5. Please add folder support in Endpoint Protection - Antimalware Policies

    We manage desktops and servers in the same SCCM infrastructure but by different teams. When we create antimalware policies, we have resorted to prefixing every entry with either desktop - ... or server - ... This would be great to support a folder structure to keep this clean. We have 45 policies so far and that list will probably swell to 75 or 100. RBA per folder would be a bonus.

  6. Protect Custom Collections from High-Risk Deployments

    It would be nice to be able to protect collections from High-Risk Deployments in the same way that the built-in collections, such as All Systems collection is. Perhaps, a tick box on General or Deployments tab?

    For example: if I have default size of 100 for hiding collections from high risk deployments, I also have smaller collections of critical systems with less than 100 members that I want protected from high-risk task sequences.

  7. I would be nice if in the Devices view there was an option to display the currently logged on user and the IP of the device

    I would be nice if in the Devices view there was an option to display the currently logged on user and the IP of the device so that I would not have to run a query all the time to get that information.

  9. Improve reliability and performance of Pull Distribution Points

    Pull DP's are a great idea, however they are quite error prone and often just stop working. Search in any Configuration Manager forum for Pull DP's and you will see the same thing over and over, which is they often get stuck at "downloading content" and the only way to rectify it is to uninstall/reinstall the pull DP.

    As I said, I really like the idea of Pull DP's. But I would like to see the product team spend some more time on them to really get them working as efficiently and effectively as possible.

  10. Add Software Update Point and last Software Scan Time to Client Activity within Devices on the Summary Tab

    On the Client Activity column of a device details on the Summary tab in the console please add two items.

    1) Last Software Update Scan / Evaluation
    2) Software Update Point

    This provides parity with the already existing Management Point information and last HINV and SINV scan times that are displayed. As a bonus maybe even throw in how many Missing Updates the device needs. :)

  11. Updates and servicing should honor file replication schedule

    With 1702 was a 1gb download, secondary sites over a sat link were congested beyond their transfer windows. It would great if the next distribution used both binary differencing as well as honoring the replication schedule

  12. under software updates a custom column to set a flag if update is flawed

    nice to have a self-defined column under SoftwareLibary-SoftwareUpdates-all Software Updates to mark for yourself whether an update is flawed or not. for example, set a flag (red, yellow, green)

  13. Add "color" (i.e. error level) filtering to cmtrace

    I open cmtrace for one reason: to find the red lines. Just thinking about opening a log file and dragging the scroll bar around triggers my carpal tunnel.

    Please add a button to quickly toggle between showing "all", "only errors (red)", and "only warnings and errors (yellow and red)".

    The logic (however rudimentary it may be) is already there. This is really only a (huge quality of life) GUI/view change.

  14. Windows 10 Build Updates - Use standardized terminology please

    Why are the Windows 10 build upgrades under the UPGRADES classification, but called "Feature UPDATES" and listed in the "All Windows 10 UPDATES"?

  15. Community Hub - Documentation - Introduce multiple browser tabs

    Can you make the TP's Community Hub > Documentation Panel show browser tabs. It is currently disabled.

    We tend to have multiple web pages open within the documentation library.

    Bonus points if the currently open page\tabs can be retained between Console sessions for each user, and re-opened when the panel is re-visited.

  16. Install software update step fails during OSD with timeout error when clients connect from slowly bandwidth sites when SUP is remote

    Customer has large number of remote sites close to 1000 sites with slow bandwidth, they have local DP's to keep content transfer local and they are also okay with download SUP catalog over the WAN for a regular client .. however same design does not work for OSD process wherein Install software update step fails on all machine form the remote location during OSD with timeout error after 30 minutes as it cannot download 500MB catalog data in the allotted 30 minutes..

  18. Easy copy or transfer of software update files between deployment packages

    Sometimes, a software update needs to be copied or moved from one deployment package to another. This is especially useful for keeping deployment packages smaller and more efficient when using Automatic Deployment Rules (ADR). Currently, updates always need to be re-downloaded from the internet or a source location. This is inefficient and can be time consuming as well.

  19. bulletin id

    In All Software Updates Node > sort by Bulletin ID Look for MS017-010. Only Windows server 2008 updates appear. However this information is not correct. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx this bulletin also applies to Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10. Bulletin IDs should be set for all affected operating systems.

  20. Add options to control power management by days of the week

    Add options to control power management by days of the week.

    For example our organizations peek hours would be between 7am and 5pm M-F, it would be great to put all the PC's in a power saving mode all day Sat. and Sun.
