  1. It would be better include check box to select or deselect Software updates in SCCM.

    At the moment all we can select Software updates by clicking each of Software updates and sometimes it cause confusion. It would be good if we can have kind of Check box option where we can select or deselect Software updates in SCCM console.

  2. add direct membership if app installed during TaskSequence (App Properties-General Information - Allow this application to be installed fro)

    Add property into Application next to checkbox -> 'Allow this application to be installed from task sequence action without being deplyed.'

    The new property can contain 'Collection name' to which will be made direct membership at the end of Task Sequence if the Appplication is successfuly installed during Task Sequence.

  3. Upgrade Operating System Built-in Step: Add Option to Keep Files Only

    Customer does not have the store installed and using the built-in TS step keeps files and apps. I know that the "OSDSetupAdditionalUpgradeOptions" variable can be used, but it would be nice to have the option on the built-in TS step.

    Thanks for responding.

    We cannot provide a different migration options for the reasons I outlined below. Anything other than ‘Applications, Data and Settings’ will leave the machine unmanaged – while we developed the new upgrade step we tested them all.

    I’ll see if I can source steps for reinstalling the Store without having to complete a restore.

  5. Ability to run SCCM Update prerequisite check again if failed

    If you did not run a prerequisites check prior to installing the Configuration Manager and it fails you aren't able to run it again. The run prereq check button is greyed out and if you use Retry installation any warnings during prereq checks are ignored.

    It would be great if the Run prerequisites button would be available in this scenario to run it again without ignoring the warnings.

  6. ADR – Software Updates Property Filters

    When creating a new ADR software update you have the option to select the property filters and search criteria’s in the wizard. It would be beneficial for an advanced search technique or “wild card” to identify those filters that are broader. For Example: -%Cumulative Update for .NET Framework%Windows 10 Version 1809

  7. campaigning notifications or UI for Inplace windows Upgrades

    Instead of relying on custom powershell script for customization and UI design ,Is it not good to have some options in CM directly which can be used for every release of windows rollouts to have better user experience.

    and may be some notifications msgbox about releases like a campaigning through SCCM.

  8. Fast uninstall step for "required Applications"

    i got a collection with all Clients, which were installed through osd. after that i deploy all OSD-Apps to this Collection (required). if i troubleshoot a client,i need the option to fast uninstall one of the required application. i need to delete the app from the collection and wait for the client check.after that i can redeploy the app. it would save a lot of time for me..

  9. Add a status of 'Skipped, prestaged content mode' for content distribution. Currently this appears as 'in-progress'.

    Add a status of 'Skipped, prestaged content mode' or 'waiting, maintenance mode' for content distribution. Distribution points in prestaged mode are skipped and not processed, yet the status states 'in-progress'.

  13. Add detection methods based on the absence of files or folders.

    This option can be useful when you have two deployments that have almost the same detection methods, the same collection (or two collections containing the same computers) to target, and one of them replaces the other. Otherwise you have to mutliply collections or global conditions, which overload the server unnecessarily.

    This also poses a reinstallation problem, the replaced application is systematically detected and uninstalled and its replacement is reinstalled at each application deployment evaluation cycle.

    For example, the application A has for detection method "The file f1 exists" and the application B for for detection method "The file f1 and…

  14. client issues in 1610

    We are facing issues with the new client in 1610. mainly it is very slow to load and returns errors at time. The service does not respond to restart calls. Finally, Sorting by status for installations does not work as expected.

  16. add application catalogue install report

    It would be useful to be able to have a default report created which shows the total number of software installed through the catalogue method. This would be useful when reporting back to management the amount of time saved through end users installing themselves, rather than time spent pushing out, amending collections, or manually installing.

  17. Tool to find out what cause SCCM Client installation/Communication failure on Workstations

    In our environment SCCM Server installs client on discovered resource but they failed to install due to machine specific issue, could you prepare a tool which we can give it to floor support technician to run on machine which have SCCM Client issue or Installation failure, the tool should check for all prerequisites for client install also firewall issues like (WMI and File and Print sharing not allowed ) it should the issue with which it becomes easy to fix the underlying problem and get the sccm client successfully deployed

  20. As soon as possible behavior for existing deployments

    When you update a deployment and change the 'Schedule the application to be available at', if 'As soon as possible after the available time' is ticked this should automatically update the installation deadline to be the same. I have had deployments go out as the schedule is earlier than the available time.
