  1. Update SCCM Client install to download and install the latest WUAgent

    Why does the SCCM client still download the 7.6.7600.256 for Windows 7 when the latest version is 7.6.7601.23453?

    Would be good when the sccm installs or upgrades that it attempts to install the latest version.

  2. 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.

  3. Client Settings Priority - Set value using text input

    My Company has almost 30 client setting profiles. I would like to see the ability of using a text entry box to set the priority of the client settings instead of using the "increase" and "decrease" mouse clicks. When creating a new client settings, it takes too many mouse clicks to get it to the correct priority.

  4. Pre-download content to cache for required app deployments asap and not wait for deadline

    Required deployments of SWUpdates gets downloaded to clients ASAP, but required applications wait for the deadline to hit before downloading the content.
    I would like the required application deployment to have the same option to pre-download ahead of the deadline. That way we can be positive the installation start at that time.

  5. Automatic refresh/update after you do "Update distribution point"

    When updating a package over "Update distribution point" we always have to click outside of the section/folder in order to get an updated status of the package we are updating. It would be nice to have it automatically refreshed only for that particular software.

  6. Display Security Scopes and Collections columns by default under Administrative Users

    Many organizations struggle a lot with the concepts in Role Based Administration. One of the things I see that helps them immensely to see how they've misapplied security is to simply turn on the Scopes and Collections column views under Administrative Users. While the Roles are shown by default, without the Scopes and Collections, there isn't enough context for them to understand what is actually set up.

    Please display the Security Scopes and Collections columns by default under the Administrative Users view in the ConfigMgr console. This will help people understand RBA at a glance much more easily.

  7. CB1606 Hardware Inventory - Client Events - Show friendly names

    A new class popped up in CB1606 Hardware Inventory called Client Events. It includes an Event Name (GUID) and a count. Please also include a friendly name for the events.

  8. Allow Boolean Parameter Types in RunScripts

    The addition of Parameters to Scripts was a welcome feature however it'd be nice to also support the boolean parameter type. While other parameter types (arrays, switch, etc.) would be helpful, I feel that most of them could be reproduced (smartly) by using String, or Boolean for most situations.

  10. Add tab for Antimalware Policies on Collection view similar to Device view

    Although AM Policies are deployed to Collections just like Custom Client Settings, there isn't a tab to show you deployed AM Policies on collection console views.

    Bonus points: Look at Device view and Collection view tabs, and make the names congruent ("Custom Client Settings" vs. "Client Settings")

    Super Bonus Points: Resultant Set of Antimalware Polies view which has been suggested elsewhere for a long time (https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/10237263-add-a-view-for-resultant-set-of-policy-for-anti-ma
    and
    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8398638-policy-resultant-for-scep-policy-like-clients-sett)

    Super Extra Bonus Points: Resultant Set of Client Settings and Resultant Set of Antimalware Policies should clearly show what pages were set by what policy. (https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/14855388-resultant-set-of-client-settings-should-show-what)

    Thanks!

  11. Allow using a custom icon for software center

    The new branding options in Software Center are fantastic. With the ability to add a logo and web content, it really does look fantastic and users seem to have been receptive.

    The final touch would be the ability to customize the icon on the start menu through client settings. We could do that in a GPO, but it's clunky.

  12. use Reliability Monitor/SystemStabilityIndex in inventory, client health and cmpivot

    System Reliability Monitor is the integrated Windows 10 Troubleshooting tool which is a filter to the eventlog, looking at performance and stability related information
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/technet-magazine/dd362384(v=msdn.10)
    For example you can find out since you installed a driver or app the system gets unstable

    this data should be used in #configmgr client health, inventory and cmpivot

    There is an number, the SystemStabilityIndex

    get-wmiobject Win32_ReliabilityStabilityMetrics -property "SystemStabilityIndex" | select-object -first 1 SystemStabilityIndex

    Based on that we could create collections of good and bad performing machines or query cmpivot

  13. Wake On LAN returns machine to previous state after a customisable time period.

    It's great to be able to wake a machine up from Power Off or Hibernate to deploy software but being able to specify a time to stay awake before returning to the previous state would be great.

    If I wake my client fleet at 0300 for a deployment which takes (say) 15 minutes, it is a waste of power to leave 2000 machines awake after the deployment.

  14. Content Status in Peer Cache Sources

    We need to see which content is in cache of peer cache source computers. It is possible with SQL query, but there is no builtin screen/menu in console for that. It will ease the management of peer cache source computers in boundary groups without DP

    It can be like 'Content Status' menu for only for Peer Cache Source Computers.

  16. Maintenance Window Templates

    The concept of Maintenance Window Templates would allow an administrator to device pre-configured Maintenance Windows (The timeframes and recurrence schedules) which could then be chosen from when configuring Collection Maintenance Windows. In addition, these same pre-defined Maintenance Windows could be made available (via Software Center, if allowed by the admin) for end users to be able to change the individual system Maintenance Window on demand from that pre-defined list.

    This is essentially an expansion on the "Business Hours" feature however it allows the admin to specify maintenance windows which may align with Business Unit or IT Maintenance Window schedules.

  17. Create a client option to clear the Application Catalog history.

    We get occasional complaints from our end users that software they once installed from the Application Catalog (e.g. MS Access 2013) still keeps showing up in their Software Center as "Available" once they have either uninstalled it or have been upgraded to e.g. Office 2016.

    It would be nice to have an option in the SCCM client to clear the history and make it forget about the previously requested applications from the Application Catalog.

  18. Add support for having an apostrophe in a directory name in SCEP Exclusion settings

    If a directory has an apostrophe in it (for example, C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware"), it is not possible to add an exclusion of the directory or a file in the directory as an error dialog states "The path contains one or more of the invalid characters." As it is possible to create a directory with an apostrophe in it, it should be possible to add the directory to the exclusion settings for SCEP.

  19. MSI feature management

    It would be great if the Deployment Types had a feature to manage MSI features.

    Currently I have a need for it for Microsoft LAPS.
    All our machines need the CSE feature and select employees need the Management and Management.UI features.

    Using the default detection method making two different applications with the same MSI, installing different features, will result in the second application to run to evaluate as installed before it runs.
    Making detection methods for the different features of an MSI can be difficult work.

  20. Reuseable .exe list for closing running Application

    Would be nice to be able to create a default list of .exe's that can be selected for the detection of open apps feature. And/or have CM remember them and keep a running history to dynamically build those exclusions. That way, you don't have to type in the same exclusions over and over, or fat finger them or keep them in notepad to remember.
