  2. Allow more complex rules for Automatic Deployment Rules

    In our environment we only have x64 workstations and use a specific version of windows 10. But currently when using a title filter you can only create an OR filter

    eg. Title -86x OR 1703

    I want to be able to do "Title -86x AND 1703"

  3. I would like to seperate the roles for example DP and PXE should be two different roles.

    I would love to separate roles instead of having PXE embedded with the DP role they should be separate.

  4. Move Client to new Active Directory Organizational Unit during reinstallation

    While migrating our existing clients to windows 10 with a reinstall TS we need to move the Clients to another OU.
    It will be very good for us to get this realised with during the TS with a special function. "Join Domain" will not work to move the existing client to another OU.

  5. Improve app model logging

    Make it easier to troubleshoot application deployment with:
    - Consolidated log file
    - Make logging easier to understand and find the reason for failures.
    For a new SCCM Admin/Tech troubleshooting appdeployment is hard, have to understand the different log files and know which one to read.

  6. Integrate Task Sequence Versioning with GIT

    For large enterprises such as the one I work in govt Education, it would be very beneficial for integrating version control via GIT. Every time you check in a new version is saved to GIT.

    Then you can review changes (could be xml or some other format) in GIT, and potentially revert to an older version if the changes are not approved.

  8. Add /ResetBase to New-CMOperatingSystemImageUpdateSchedule

    Now that optimization of the WIM and removal of superseded updates is available as an option for offline servicing in the console, it would be great if this option could be added as a switch to the New-CMOperatingSystemImageUpdateSchedule cmdlet. I use this cmdlet to automate scheduling of updates in an ADG against all my WIMs so it would be great if I could shrink them down at the same time without needing to do this in the console.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Updating status to noted, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    We’ve addressed this in our 1902 release as well as the ability to import a single .wim from the multi-index .wim.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/get-started/manage-operating-system-images#BKMK_AddOSImages

    As Vlad mentioned, the New-CMOperatingSystemImageUpdateSchedule CmdLet has -RemoveSupersededUpdates

    I’ll update the status to completed if this addressed your ask. If not, then let us know any gaps.

  10. Include deployment in windows update for business wizard

    When you create a Windows Update for Business policy in the console, I suggest that the deployment settings are included in the same wizard as where you configure your policies. It creates a more natural workflow.

  11. express installation file download in console

    need to reduce the download of .psf files for each Cumulative updates of Windows 10 versions, as its consuming more than 30 to 40 GB on a monthly basis. Should have a similar option on console like enable express installation on console (which is similar to enable express installation on clients)

  12. A select all and deselect all when setting security scopes

    We have over 200 security scopes. Some things, like ADRs, run and create the software update group with all security scopes assigned to that software update group and we have to manually uncheck every single security scope except the one we would like associated with the SUG. A select all and deselect all would speed this process up for us

  13. Automate creation of Office 365 Application for new versions

    Go 1 step further with the new Office Customisation Service shown a Ignite. Currently the service allows admins to create a new application installer for x version of Office. Automate this!

    A common annoyance currently is that we have Office 365 packaged as an application in ConfigMgr. This application is apart of a Task Sequence to install Windows 10. At time of creation, the Office application is up to date. However, once the latest version of Office is released, this will result in the machine installing the old version during the TS, and then installing updates post build via whateverā€¦

  14. Software Center Command Line Switch Addition for Package Support

    Software Center Command Line Switch Addition

    It is not currently possible to display a specific package in the same way we can display a specific application in Software Center via command line or URL command with softwarecenter:SoftwareID=

    Also an option to specify a search term would be a fantastic additional feature. E.G. Launch Software Center and automatically search for all Adobe products.

    This addition would make launching Software Center with a specific application, package or search term seamless if clicking a link in an email, an intranet page or customised shortcuts.

    This is what a package command line might lookā€¦

  15. Deployments should default to the safer option of "Available" instead of "Required"

    Where available (Package, Application, Updates, or Task Sequence), deployment should default to the safer option of "Available" vs. "Required."

  16. Windows Update Agent Version

    Would it be possible to have a visual queue in the Software Updates console a hint of which KBs are delivering which Windows Update Agent?

  17. Software Center sort by table headings

    Ability to sort applications in Software Center not from the "Sort by:" pull down, but rather by clicking on the Heading of the section you want to sort. This would be more in line with how Excel tables allow you to sort by field by clicking on the column header.

  18. Right Click\Client Notification has a "Restart" option. I think this should be more labeled with a more specific term like "Reboot"

    The term "Restart" is kind of vague. Could mean "restart the SMS service". If it reboots the server that is what it should say: "REBOOT" or "Restart computer\server"

  19. Add site setting to Automatically enable/disable maintenance mode as DPs go offline and come back online

    Currently we run a powershell script every half hour that pings all our DPs and places any that dont respond to a series of 3 pings with a 45 second wait between them into maintenance mode. This script also takes any DPs currently in maintenance mode that do respond to a ping out of maintenance mode. Can this be integrated into the console? Seems like most of the code base for this is already there with the MP showing online status for clients in the console (would obviously have to handle non-managed DPs as well).

  20. Fix drag and drop for moving nested folders in a Task Sequence

    Specifically moving a nested folder up to the root level. If you use drag and drop, it's hit and miss as to whether the Folder ends up at the root level or nested in some other nearby folder.

    The move up/down buttons work around the problem, but if you are moving it up past 20 other TS steps, it's not ideal.

    The black line that indicates where you're dragging it has a small arrow head on the end. Maybe change that to a different indicator that would show whether it's dropping it at the root vs. into another folder.
