  2. maintenance window and computer restart notification time preventing reboots

    It seems that if you set a client notification time in Computer Restart client policy that exceeds the maintenance window on a collection then the devices in that collection will never force a reboot with a user logged on.

    It would be nice if it gave the user the notification window but when the maintenance window comes around for the 2nd time and a reboot has not been done then the installation would happen at the start of that maintenance window.

  4. Switching Connection Type should be easier

    As far as I know, the only way to change a clients connection type to "Always Internet", "Always Intranet" or to a switching Connection Type (Currently Intranet/Currently Internet), is by re-installing the client. How nice would it be if we could control this setting without having to re-install the client.

  5. It would be nice to see the total space needed for a task sequence before it is created

    It would be nice to see the total space required for a standalone task sequence media creation before the process starts. It doesn't help to try and create media when I don't know if it will fail due to the size of the flash drive

  6. Allowing the windows installer file to be elsewhere in the sources subdirectory

    Actually the MSI is located in the root of the source file then SCCM will be able to detect it only at the root of the source file. But if the msi is Under another directory why not be able to set that localtion?

  7. better driver and driver pack updates

    Consider this scenario: you have 2 hardware models (eg. Lenovo X1 Yoga and Lenovo X1 Carbon); you download the SCCM driver pack for both models and import them into SCCM.
    When you import a driver pack you add a category to identify the model that belongs to.
    After you complete the import process for both driver packs you recognize that some drivers are in use by both models.
    So at the end you will have:
    - drivers used by model A only
    - drivers used by model B only
    - drivers used by both model A and B

    The main…

  9. When enabling "Upgrades" class' in SUP properties, the advice about KB3095113 is wrong, KB3095113 is superceded. Badly needs attention!!!!

    When enabling the "Upgrades" classification in SCCM SUP properties, the advice about KB3095113 is wrong, KB3095113 is superceded by KB4041693. This is horrendous to unravel and badly needs clarification and attention. Please make efforts to sort this mess out, thanks.

  10. Add log file information when opening a log in CMTrace

    It would be great to see a tooltip or option in the cmtrace toolbar to get more details about a log file. For example when opening EPCtrlMgr.log I see a tooltip with the description of the log file "Records information about the syncing of malware threat information from the Endpoint Protection site system role server with the Configuration Manager database."

  12. Allow multiple versions of the console to be installed

    Allow multiple versions of the Admin Console to be installed and used on a single system.
    In environments where multiple hierarchies are in use not all will be on the same version. This forces the use of multiple systems with the corresponding console version for remote management or the use of a down level console when only a single system is available.

  13. Next available maintenace window - Improvements

    Great work on the improvements on the new software center – especially the next available Maintenance Window … but … why stuff it under need a tab and then a subtab ?

    A few reasons why I want it in the top right corner :

    1. I really think an end user is not going to drill down to the tab below to find the info. The user and helpdesk really want to see it when they open software center . What is going on in detail , can be found under a subtab for all I care .
    2.…

  14. Be nice to see the logged in account at the top next to the site information

    Sometimes we open multiple consoles on one computer to things such as confirm Role Base access is working correctly or compare other items. Be great when doing a run as to launch the console we can differentiate between the two instances.

  15. Maintenance Windows using the option to fire on the last given day of a month (last monday, last friday, etc) are incorrectly scheduled

    Collection Properties > Maintenance Windows
    Create a new maintenance window.
    Set the maintenance window for Monthly, Recur every: The last day; where the day is the first day (not DATE) of the following month.
    Ie, Feb 1, 2019 is a Friday, so schedule for the last Friday of the month with an effective date of 1/1/2019
    .
    Turn on the UTC option and set the start and end time to 1:01 AM-3AM. Make sure your client is in UTC-X where X is large enough to cause the start time to be on the previous day. My client was in Central…

  17. Selected Client Setting is Lost when Changing Priority

    If you sort and then re-prioritize a given client setting it does not maintain the selection. So if you want prioritize something multiple times you need to re-select it every time.

  19. Run detection without downloading application

    When using dependencies and superseedence it seems that the client downloads applications to be able to run the detection method.

    My scenario is that i have Application A which from today is dependent of Application B. i added Application B as a dependency and now Software Center shows that it wants to download 11 components. This would be every single superseeded application back to the first version of Application A in our environment.
