  1. Remove unsupported operating systems as options

    Throughout the console we still list unsupported operating systems as choices for filtering (XP, Vista, Server 2003). We should remove these.

    Custom Reports should be migratable. Is there an intention to add too migration?
    Migratable - not in English dictionary nor sccm as far as custom reports go.

  4. Patch Download should be optionally done by the site server

    To make automatic deployment rules work site servers in enterprise environments needs proxy and firewall exceptions. So site servers should be able to download software updates. But in remote console sessions the console users also need proxy permissions because the downloads are done in context of the console users and for their workstations firewall exceptions need to be defined. This makes it unimpossible to run the console on a secured Workstation by an administrator account that can not access the internet. It would be usefull if we had the option to choose who downloads the patches. In example "use myā€¦

  5. Detection method comments

    Add a field for adding a note in detection methods. When you have a large list of detections it would be easier to update for changes if I knew what reason I put in for each detection.

  6. SU download from MS for DA/VPN computers only (rest via DP)

    The 1806 feature to download from MS directly is great. But once the SU is downloaded it won't work anymore. Would like to have the option to deploy in different ways (DA clients to pull from MS, on site clients from DP).

  9. Retain Task Sequence Editor window size and position

    Make the Task Sequence Editor retain it's last known size and position, and allow the left/right panes to always be freely resized.

    Currently, every time you open view/edit a task sequence, the window reverts to it's default size and split-pane size; the left-pane with the list of steps is too narrow to see all the nested step names and can't be expended until the entire window is resized larger.

  10. Configurable Software Update instllation time

    With Windows 10 and Server 2016 updates taking longer to install than previous versions of Windows. It would be helpful to be able to be able to set a site wide setting for the default installation time given for software updates. Currently this is 10 minutes but we are having to manually set this to 60 minutes on each update presently.

  12. Mobile Device User Relationship. Intune Hybrid Setup- Reporting feature to list primary devices for users.

    Ability to generate a report in SCCM to list Primary mobile device for a user. Lack of this reporting feature creates additional overhead to MDM Administrators in identifying the user's device to take any remote actions. E.g. The device name could be "iPhone" There can be 100's of device with name "iPhone". This should be a very basic reporting capability that should have been in place. Kindly consider this request and introduce this reporting feature.

  13. Add data access/distribution settings options to app/package creation

    It would be great to have the ability to check the appropriate data access/distribution setting options from the get-go rather than having to go into the properties of each app/package and checking the appropriate boxes. Just having the options available when you create the app/package would save time.

  15. Resource explorer launch from queries

    In Configuration Manager Console the Resource Explorer cannot be launched from queries results in the Monitoring -> Queries if you built a query that not only selects attributes from SMS_R_System.
    Often it is needed to select attributes from other tables like SMS_G_System.
    If you select only one attribute from another table the GUI declines to launch Resource Explorer or other functionalities from the right click menu.
    Maybe this restriction in the launch of Ressource Explorer from queries can be dropped.
    It seems to me that the tables get always resolved to SMS_R_System in case you adress more then one table. ā€¦

  16. Program

    A workflow system (tab) for handling application/package errors (i.e non-zero return codes) for example; I should be able to config a setting of if the package/program gets an exit code of 1025 then handle it particular way or reboot try again 1 more time.

    Suggested options could be
    - Reboot device, try again 1 more time (great for 1025 errors)
    - E-mail support team X on X failure
    - Execute package 'PackageID/ProgramID' then attempt 1 more time (great for clean up scripts)
    - Add to collection X on Y error.

  17. Set Time Zone in Client Settings

    Setting of Time Zone in Client Settings (or for that matter, any "regional" based settings) as part of Client Settings would be very helpful. I've previous used Dynamic Variables in an OSD Task Sequence to set regional settings, but that only works where devices are built on that site. Having Client Settings applied to Device Collections that separate devices into regions would be awesome.

  18. Unquarantining detected files through SCCM

    People who have access to SCCM can perform multiple tasks (i.e. initiate a scan, reboot the host...), but can't unquarantine the detected file for file/malware analysis purposes. Being said, it is good if SCCM has the capability of unquarantining some or all quarantined files, zip them with a password and ships them over to some other location that the SCCM admin defined when setting this feature up. It is also good to allow auto unquarantine functionality (meaning, the process mentioned above automatically after each detection if the SCCM admin wants to)

  19. Advise which dependency failed during OSD on the screen as well as the log.

    I work in an environment that does not allow me to enable the command prompt in a boot image. This makes it difficult to check what went wrong. During the dependency check in a PXE advise which dependencies failed on the screen as well as the log. It would be good to state if the NIC and storage drivers are working ok.

  20. when importing drivers or any other task, display hyperlink to log file

    When importing drivers and many other tasks, configuration manager displays a notice for the logfile to monitor the task, but there is no hyperlink to open the same. The admin shouldn't have to go searching for these logs, but be presented a hyperlink to the directory.
