  1. Please give us an option for auto-refresh in SCCM screens

    I'd like an option to turn on auto screen refresh every x mins/secs. just some times that it'd be nice to have.

  2. Software Center: Show more details regarding package information

    Users are regularly informed via a pop-up that new software is available. If you then open the Software Center, you will see countless entries with status Installed or Available. However, it is not recognizable for the user whether a program listed is suitable for him, whether it represents a new version of a software already used by him or should not even be installed.
    It would be better to let the user know which new software is a new version of an already installed one and, moreover, what features this new software provides. Thus, a distinction for the user wouldā€¦

  4. Allow to defer installation / update / whatever for X hours / days from the time a user first sees a notification

    Sometimes it's useful to allow a user who has been away for some time to defer an installation for the same amount of time (in days) that other users had (e.g. Win10 Feature Updates) rather than defer until a hard deadline. It would be great to specify that an installation or update could be deferred by the user for X amount of time since the first time they were actually notified. Perhaps as a bonus also have the ability to still have a hard deadline furhter in the future.

    e.g. Users have 2 weeks to install the feature update fromā€¦

  5. Package creation empty Data Source (1706)

    When creating a new package you can browse to the installation file (UNC-path). When done the package has no Data Source information. Therefore you have to browse by tab Data Source to the source location(folder) again.

    In my opinion this is an unnecessary step. It should be very nice if this is solved.

  6. Make Software Center Links Trusted by Office

    Software Center's ability to produce a direct link to an available application is great, however when you send the resulting link via email the end user gets a "Unsafe Location" warning prompt. Please add an option to automatically add the softwarecenter: location to the list of trusted locations in office, similarly to how there is an option to add the app catalog to the list of trusted sites. The exact regkey needed is below.

  7. Make client CIM methods work over WinRM

    Currently using Invoke-CimMethod will fail on remote clients unless you use a CimSession with a CimSessionOption specifying the DCOM protocol.

    The server side classes work great with CIM cmdlets, it'd be great if there were parity there with the client classes, especially since PowerShell 6.0 doesn't include the WMI cmdlets that people will gravitate toward to use DCOM.

  8. compliance items, add deployment tab to bottom pane

    on the compliance item, add deployments tab with the capability of creating collection from the compliance item. You can do it on the compliance baseline but that is not sufficient as a baseline may have more than 1 CI so your target collection *MAY* have a mix of issues. *OR* just make it where you can deploy a CI in addition to baseline with same capabilities

  9. Enhance temporary nodes when viewing deployments

    Opening Monitoring - Deployments, double clicking a software deployment, takes us to the Deployment Status.
    If i open the Error status tab and double click one of the categories, a temporary node is created, containing the affected computers.
    If the temporary node is left open and i go back to the Error status tab and double click another category, i'm brought back to the same temporary node.
    This is due to the node being limited to the status and not the category.

    I'd like to have the temporary node reflect the category, not just the status.

  10. Add MP Selection/Priority Setting to PXE-Enabled DP Settings

    PXE-Enabled DPs currently pass their Management Point List on to PXE Clients, as reflected in the "ManagementPoints" list in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\DP; this seems to be an alphabetical list of MPs in the infrastructure which may not reflect the actual MP(s) the PXE client should communicate with.
    On the PXE-Enabled DP, in HKLM\OSFTWARE\Microsoft\CCM, the AllowedMPs registry value can be created and populated. The PXE Responder will honor this list when setting up the PXE Client's environment.

    A field should be added to the PXE settings of a DP to allow configuring of this setting, or to override the site's MP List thatā€¦

  13. Adjust ZTIApplication to return error codes during installation

    Currently, if an application fails to install due to a typo or error during install, the task sequence just continues on. It would be preferable to at least have an option for the task sequence to fail if an application did not get installed.

  15. Easier to implement other Custom OSD menus

    Easier to implement other Custom OSD menus. I have written a new front end (We deploy offline to classified systems with specific configurations). There is very little information on how to implement your own custom OSD. I built one in PowerShell Studio but have yet to implement. Still trying to figure how to do it. Current GUI is limited.

  16. Different detection methods for install and uninstall

    We need to be able to have different detection methods for install and uninstall. For large software we need to know that files x, y & z need to exist, shortcuts in the start menu and uninstall entry in the registry. That will be the install detection. All of this needs to be true. But for uninstall we need to know if any of those are still there. The differens is "and" (for install) and "or" (for uninstall).

    Detection should also be possible by a ps1-file in the source folder.

  19. Device Supersede

    Copy associated device collections of one device to another.

    I'll explain

    Computer A is old and needs to be replaced. It is slated to be replaced with Computer B.

    Currently at this point I need to manually remove Computer A from all the Device collections manually. And then Manually add Computer B to those same collections.

    It would be lovely if I could supersede a device. So right click on device , and have option to supersede. Then dialogue box pops up and asks for a device. Much like the current "Add Resource" search box.

    Then Computer A is removedā€¦

  20. SMS Agent Host Startup Type - Client Setting

    There should be an option in the Client Settings to select the Startup Type for the SMS Agent Host. It takes a couple minutes for the agent to start by default since it's set to Automatic (Delayed Start).

    While I think that this should remain the default, it should be an option in client settings to switch this to a regular Automatic startup type.
