  1. System up time column in Device Collection View

    Would be great if we could see the system boot time or how long the system has been up in the collection views. Hopefully this info could be gathered via the mechanism that is getting the current logged on user. An example where it would be useful is just after patching to confirm the devices have restarted.

  2. Add "Referenced by Task Sequence" item to Boot Image Summary or Details tab

    The problem:
    When multiple admins are working on OSD Task Sequences, it is not obvious to see if a boot image is being called by a TS without going into the Properties of every single TS. This is exacerbated by WIMs created outside of SCCM, as is the case with MDT Boot images.

    Suggestion:
    Add "Referenced by Task Sequence" item to Boot Image Summary or Details tab.

  3. prerequisite

    If prerequisite checker fails with a warning there should be an option to continue with the upgrade anyway.

  4. Add uninstall content path to the Create Deployment Type wizard

    Currently, in the New Deployment Type wizard, you can only specify a single content source. Now that we can have separate content source folders for uninstall, we have to create our deployment types without specifying this then edit the deployment type and add the second content folder. Please add the content options from the deployment type properties to the initial wizard.

  6. add selected items to existing device collection - Acknowledgment window

    When using "add selected items to existing device collection" option from a device , no confirmation or acknowledge window is shown.

    It would be great to display a pop up window with information like "machine added to XYZ collection

  7. Elaborated Bandwidth Throttling

    Currently, we can configure 'time-based' bandwidth throttling, which means we can restrict content transfer for a particular time period and that will be applicable for all days (same). What if, I want to configure different throttling setting for weekends (or may be some other days), during which, there is less load on network and I can loosen up the restriction.

  8. Offline staging of MDT

    The option Offline Staging of MDT works great to update image with latest patches even office is possible. Please include this option so we can get rid of MDT.

  9. Expose some policy data through the SMS Provider

    It would be great if there was a WMI class that we could query, or a method we could call, to verify if policy is targeted to a specific client. In complex OSD scenarios, there is no way to verify whether TS policy has been targeted to a device after modifying collection membership without accessing SQL directly. For example, a method that could be called with just the client GUID or resource ID and a specific Task Sequence policy GUID, simply returning True or False, would rock. This could be called every 30 or 60 seconds and the process couldā€¦

  10. Upgrade from 1610 to 1702

    There seems to be a bug with the pre-req check for the MP upgrade. MSXML6 check fails then the MP fails to install. I had to run ccmclean /client then restart server. Then the MP installed and the 1702 upgrade completed.

  11. Deployment workflow manager and wizard to help build custom answer files

    Deployment Workflow wizard within WAIK Image manager to create custom answer files. Partition wizard that will help create a deployment package with system and recovery partitions in tact. Wizard to allow users to specify Legacy or UEFI deployment. Allow the ability to directly modify a WIM and add required files to the image itself. This is to deploy images without SCCM. Driver package wizard that can add model support to a standard base image, again without the use of SCCM. There are many complicated and time consuming methods to accomplish these task however some automation would allow more precise setupā€¦

  12. Create a new category for MUI / Language packs in asset intelligence

    In asset Intelligence, MUI for an office application belongs to the same category as the application itself. So, when you list applications per category, you will receive a lot of extra records related to MUI that are not really useful. (ea: E-Mail and collaboration will return entries like Office 2013 MUI) Assigning MUI to a specify category will ease filtering.

  14. Support MUI for the "Restart Computer" TaskSequence action description visible to the user

    Especially in MUI environments explaining why a reboot is required can lead to confusion on the users side. Supplying a short description is nice already, but it would be even cooler if it was configurable based on the users display language.

  15. Client push function

    Client push function

    1. The SCCM Client Agent is to be rolled out on a client PC.
    2. For some reason, the SCCM Client Agent can not be installed on the client PC.
    3. Now you can not cancel the rollout on this client PC.

    It would be nice if you cancel the rollout or is prevented.

  16. Software Updates Graph

    When you are looking up a certain software update and it shows you that 53 are non complainant that you could click on the graph that shows 53 and would bring up those machines by name to go apply the updated too.

  17. When using dynamic app installs the error used when the application isn't found is the one where the policy download fails.

    It's technically correct, but we search at the wrong point with this error. A message that the application (name) wasn't found would be more valuable.

    thanks

  18. Detection rule use application source files

    Sometimes you need to run an executable to detemine if the application is installed or not. For example: setup.exe /listinstalled.
    today it is not possible to access the content location (mostly the cache directory) of the application.
    Is it possible to allow access to the content location of the application in the detection rule?

  19. Improve the Only Media and PXE handling for Task Sequences

    It seems that SCCM clients running in Windows process policies for Task Sequences made available to Only Media and PXE. We recently made the mistake of making our production task sequence available to all known workstations and then had all SCCM clients overload the MPs with requests seemingly for all of the components within the complicated task sequence. SCCM should first check if a deployment even applies to a client before allowing it to see or process it. A client should only see and evaluate deployments that apply to it.

  20. Make the restore option easy to implement

    Currently the restore process can be done only if the machine has the same name. It would be nice to have an option to restore the Primary site on a machine with a different name and higher operating system. Also provide some added intelligence for the restore process with a check list interface enabling administrators to check if the pre-requisites are met. This would also help in a DR scanario with standby servers.
