  1. Inconsistent feature support in different wizards

    By introducing new features or capabilities into CM not all wizards have been updated. That creates an inconsistent behavior. I tried to address that as bugs but was told this would be feature requests and must go to user voice.

    Software Update Group Deployment & Automatic Deployment Rules
    Software Update Groups can be deployed as available (we use this e.g. for the newest driver updates), but ADRs can only create Required deployments.

    Provisioned appx
    You can set on appx based applications ā€˜Provision this application for all users on the deviceā€™ and ā€˜Allow that application to be installed from the Installā€¦

  3. Select all Apps in a Category in Software Center

    Add a "Select All" when you filter apps by category. This would allow our Accounting users to install ALL of the accounting apps without have to check dozens of boxes.

  4. Next Run Windows Servicing

    In the Windows Servicing Rules window, it would be helpful to see the next scheduled time the Windows Service is supposed to run. If it doesn't have one, then the cell would be blank.

  5. Add IP addresses to SCEP Logs

    In SCEP logs add the option to show the IP address in addition to the hostname.

    This would be beneficial for SIEM tools as you can more easily correlate events between systems as some systems (routers for example) only use IPs and not hostnames

  6. It would be nice to get the ability to do true driver updates from the Software Update Point role instead of trying to deploy the exe.

    It would be nice to get the ability to do true driver updates from the Software Update Point role instead of trying to deploy the exe to actually create a package.

    Allow the drivers check box similar to using WSUS.
    Then allow them to pull down the driver similarly how WSUS handles this mechanism since SCCM is leveraging a WSUS instance to do the other portions of the Software Update Point.

  7. An option to prevent collections from being accidently deleted, like AD ou's.

    An option to prevent collections from being accidently deleted, like AD ou's. It is still to easy to remove a collection. (yes, i am experienced.)

  8. Integrate the MDT frontend into SCCM

    It would be great if the MDT integration also allows the MDT front end to be used. It is robust enough for many to not need to use the MDT UDI or even community developed frontends.

    Most especially is how you can have pre-defined software but still allow a tech to select addition software that doesn't meet any defined criteria.

    I get that SCCM is more zero touch but the frontends developed by the communities seems to indicate that this is lacking in SCCM.

  9. Ability to customize the color of the loading bar in software center

    When you customize the color scheme for Software center in client settings, it does not change the loading bar directly underneath the logo for software center. Currently the default color is green.

  10. Operating system upgrade: delete previous installations after Windows 10 upgrade

    After an operating system upgrade, it would be nice to be able to delete the files of the previous installation in order to free up disk space. Cleanmgr.exe doesn't work under SYSTEM context.

  11. Add custom alerts to Software Center installs

    We have some software that is rather larger, like the Adobe Suite, and it would be nice to display a message to the user depending on the program they try and install. Some users might try and install the whole suite when they are in a location with poor wireless coverage. If we could create a notification that said "Adobe Creative Suite is a large installer. Please dock your computer before performing this install."

    That would be awesome. Another example is some programs (Adobe Acrobat DC) sometimes report as installed correctly, but really failed because PowerPoint is running. The failureā€¦

  13. Allow copying step from read-only task sequence view

    Following on from the excellent view only option added to task sequences - https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/20361052-task-sequence-view-only-option - can we have the ability to copy a task sequence step from this view? We can already copy text from e.g. Run Command Line but we can't copy task sequence steps themselves or view conditions on steps in a way that allows copying text from them so we still need to open the task sequence in Edit mode to do this.

  15. Make WIM changes on the fly

    Add the option in Apply Operating System to add a script that can modify the WIM file once it is downloaded (i.e. changes would be local only to the current OS installation).

    This would allow you to keep the WIM file as generic as possible while still allowing it to be modified, reducing the number of WIM files required in an environment that may require multiple WIMs per OS.

  16. SEARCH FOR "ALREADY INSTALLED" APPLICATION BEFORE CHECK FOR REQUIREMENTS

    I have an Application that need so much space, so i set a requirement of 2500 Mb free to start deployment. There can be a situation where the Deployment starts because i have 3000Mb free, AFTER the deployment ends succesfully the residual free space is lower than 2500 Mb. In that case if i monitor the Deploy i see "requirement not met" for this server instead a "Success".. that's wrong!
    SEARCH FOR "ALREADY INSTALLED" APPLICATION MUST BE DONE BEFORE CHECK FOR REQUIREMENTS!!

  17. Send report subscriptions to an MS hosted Sharepoint site

    I currently have over 60 reports that I have to copy on a daily basis to 13 different directories (due to their content/category) on a SharePoint site, as the OneDrive sync tool has issues, not to mention that persistent drive mapping to an MS hosted SharePoint site is not consistent, and I have to remap the drive when the site is failed over to a different server for patching, etc.
    Manually copying these files is tedious.

  19. Handling of signed powershell scripts in OSD via Group Policy

    Applications that utilize powershell as a detection method require that script to be signed with a code signing certificate. Code signing certificates are often managed through Active Directory Group Policy.

    See: Appendix 3 in the Code-Signing Best Practices guide
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/dn653556%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

    The challenge is how to you implement a system during OSD where certificates are managed through GPO.

    One could create a package that has certmgr and import the certificates; however, if there are any changes in the certs (revoked, expired, etc.) then there are multiple places to make that change.

    In some environments the application developement group has no controlā€¦

  20. Allow clients under branch offices to get proxy MP information from assigned secondary site

    By default (that am seeing) , clients under branch offices will not get proxy management info unless you add the boundaries of branches into boundary group with mp defined .
    Lets take ex: I have lot of branch offices in location that has secondary site with MP,DP,SUP (a.ak. proxy MP) .So when i create boundary group for these branch office boundaries ,i do not specific the MP info in site system tab ,because i do not want my branch office clients to download the content from sec site which is DP and also MP. In this case ,i have notā€¦
