  1. Terms "pre-production" and "production" might not be best in context of automatic client upgrades

    Although we use term "piloting" in the package name, and there are references to term "staging" internally (database) as well, for UI/settings we are using term "pre-production". Althoug same "instance" of SCCM implementation/hierarchy can be used to manage multiple environments (development, QA, pre-production, production etc.) using term "pre-production" within the same instance of SCCM implementation/hierarchy can be confusing since it's technically still the same SCCM environment (whereas "pre-production" implies a different environement). This is especially confusing for customers who have separate/isolated SCCM instances/hierarchies managing their pre-production environments (DEV, QA, etc.).

    Therefore, the suggestion is to replace use of term "pre-production"ā€¦

  2. Exclude selected items to Existing Device collection

    When we right click the collection, we can see Add selected items option where we can add the collection to existing collection or new collection. Also, we would like to have an option to Exclude the selected collection to existing collections

  4. More Device Top Level Segragation Options

    It would be great to have more top level device segregation options. Currently we create lower level collections based on names for various departments, all other segregations/collection memberships generally require hardware inventories to have been performed before they can be processed. If these are servers or critical systems it may be too late and they are added to inappropriate collection before they are added to the collections to exclude them. It would be good to be able to separate out devices at top level collections by boundary, subnet or IP range. In order for complete segregation, we are looking intoā€¦

  5. As a Tech, We don't have view permission on sub collection. cannot give only read permission on to the collection

    As a Tech, we cannot see collection members as our sys admin block. They said they cannot grant only view permission as SCCM doesn't have that feature. If they give permission, we can add and remove members from the collection. So, every time we need to query the members from whole device list.

  7. export list of computers from devices

    I would like to be able to go to Devices or open a collection of devices, or even from the queries section. Add whatever information I'm looking for in the "Columns to Fit" area then be able to export exactly what I have on my screen into Excel. It would make reporting so much more simple. For those small requests that managers give you.

  8. Add additional OOBE options to the Apply OS Step

    I don't know if this is possible, but it would be very useful to be able to customize the OOBE option in the TS through the GUI. Currently you need to create an xml file for customization with WSIM, which works, and provides a ton of options, but it would be nice to have a generic set of the most common options as checkboxes or something. If someone needs further customization they could use an XML file instead. Part of the problem is that many options are "deprecated" yet they still seem to work?

  9. Fix include membership rules so that they properly automatically replicate collection membership changes based on incremental updates

    As we discovered via premier call (ticket #:16602356). If you use an include or exclude collection rule it is supposed to automatically update the collection membership of the including collection if the included collection membership changes.

    It does this properly if your included collection membership changes due to direct memberships or queries if using a full collection schedule. It also works if you trigger a manual collection update of the included collection or the including collection.

    However it does NOT work if your included collection uses solely incremental collection updating. The included collection membership changes itself just fine, however theā€¦

  12. Reporting Part should be improve

    Reporting Part should be improve as we are able to fetch only basic reports. need reports likes Installed updates of Machines and SW/HW Reports with accurate details. Software compliance reports should also better. There is lot off option in reports part but not work for customer, please minimize the count of reports as every reports should be good and valuable.

  13. Console list exports to Excel spreadsheet

    Allow us to export various lists in the console to a formatted Excel spreadsheet (each category would be a column in the spreadsheet). This would be a lot easier than trying to get the info from the reporting server. This would be most useful for applications and packages (management likes to ask for this this every so often). Have an "export all" option that would export every item in the selected list, but also allow us to use shift or control + right click to select individual items and then export only those selected items. Also give the option toā€¦

  14. When running the "Modify site database configuration" option, do a sql server collation test

    When running the "Modify site database configuration" option, do a sql server collation test to the remote SQL servers . We had the case that we overlooked the CP1CIAS requirements as the DB admin just configured CI_AS. When not the right Server Collation Instance , just stop the migration

  17. Enable option to run a Program as 64-bit process

    Currently programs can only run as 32-bit process, so you need to use workarounds (such as sysnative) to run as 64-bit. I would like the ability to run a program as 64-bit, just like you can do with a task sequence 'run command' and application.

    If you enable "fallback to Microsoft Update" for SUP deployment you cannot see this as data source. You can only see "Distribution Point", "Cloud Distribution Point", "BrachCache" and "Peer Cache"

  19. Embedded image file in Pre-Staged images should not supersede what the task says

    When creating a Pre-Staged Media, the image files should be treated like any other media in that if it's not required anymore then it should be ignored and the right image file downloaded from the closest distribution point.

    Scenario we have now:
    We created a Pre-Staged media last year that included Windows 10 1607. We have now moved on to 1703 but haven't had the time to go through the full testing of a new media so our OEM is still putting the pre-stage media with 1607. When the machine starts it's task sequence, when it comes to the image,ā€¦

  20. Software Center icon on desktop

    I would love the ability to put the Software Center icon on the desktop instead of burying it in the Start menu. That way my users have a quick and easy way to get to it. Maybe there's already a way to do it?
