  1. Ability to deploy all application in a folder.

    I'd like to right click on a folder and have the option to Deploy all the apps in that folder.

  2. Install Software updates TS step improvements

    The "Install Software Updates" TS step could use some improvements, including adding an option to run a package after the reboots (before update step continue), and customizing the restart time-out and messages. The status messages are also pretty vague. For example, we know that after it installs the updates it can check for updates again, but it doesn't actually say when it's doing that. I've also noticed some blank black screens showing up for at least a minute as it is about to reboot.

  3. Set-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment to include missing AllowWUMU and AllowUseMeteredNetwork

    Although you can now add multiple deployments to a single Automatic Deployment Rule there a couple of options that can be read but not set. These are:

    "If software updates are not available on the distribution point in current, neighbor or site boundary groups, download content from Microsoft Updates."
    and
    "All clients on a metered internet connection to download content after the installation deadline, which might incur additional costs"

    I can successfully retrieve all Deployments associated with an Automatic Deployment Rule via the Get-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment cmdlet and see the current settings for these properties by parsing the DeploymentTemplate XML.

  4. DP Priority via GUI

    Please make the Priority setting on DPs a configurable setting via the UI.

    Our DPs follow a different naming convention based on their location. If we update a package it adds the DPs to the queue in alphabetical order. Some DPā€™s are more important than others but they are added last only because of the name.

  5. Include updated Windows Update Agent during client install

    There are well documented issues with issues when using older versions of the Windows Update Agent. The configmgr client install still just checks for the base level of the Windows Update client. The client install should include the most up to date windows update agent so that customers will not be required to deploying the updated agent after client install to resolve known scan and related issues.

  6. uninstall deadline not honoured (App-V 4.6 application in this case)

    Bug I think: I deployed the uninstall action for an App-V 4.6 application through SCCM, with a deadline in the year 2099 (to allow leeway for monitoring before and after in my testing), but it ran as soon as it hit.

    Deployed to user, install outside maintenance windows (so I would see it in Software Center without having to wait till after work).

    Inconvenient, not a show-stopper.

  7. Refresh Search New Collection

    when creating a new collection from a search result (ie. user/device). once the collection is created, the search should not be refreshed. as today, the search is cleared. if you have a custom search, you need to apply all filters or load the search again, and it can take time on large environments

  8. Option to delete install cache of Application after successful install

    SCCM Task Sequences and Application Groups have option to delete install cache after install. Can we have the same for Single Applications, rather than having to create Task\Application sequences? Sometimes I just need to deploy a single app to a collection and want the install cache to be removed after a successful install, and not have it take up valuable disk space as some Apps we deploy are 20GB+ in size.

  10. Suppress "New software is available" for hidden tabs

    In newer versions of SCCM CB, we've had the option of hiding certain tabs in Software Center, which has been immensely useful in allowing us to present a cleaner, focused interface to end-users. Among other tabs, we choose to hide the "Operating Systems" tab, since we administer task sequence deployments end-to-end.

    However, when we make a task sequence available to those clients, the "New software is available" notification is still displayed for those deployments, and visiting the Software Center obviously won't allow the user to see the deployment. Needless to say, this makes for a confusing UX. Setting "Show notificationsā€¦

  11. Schedule Wake On Lan

    It would be great if we could schedule computers or collections to WOL at specified times. We can schedule shutdowns but not WOL.

  12. Prevent people from creating programs/deployments from the build-in Configuration Manager Client (xxx00003) package

    When you do an upgrade from CM12 SPx , prevent people to have programs/deployments from the build-in Configuration Manager Client (xxx00003) package . When you do not look / validate closely - your clients all get updated in no-time when your 1511 site servers go's online - even when you disable site-wide upgrade .

  13. Separate content removal and distribution

    Currently removing packages etc from an distribution point jams the distribution threads stopping new content going out to distribution points
    With 1000s of dp this can be troublesome
    Separating this into its own thread will allow content to be sent and removed at the same time

  14. rate limits for client, instead or BITS throttling Transfer rate

    It would be super cool to set rate limits for Transfer to Clients in Clients settings, instead of setting hardcoded Throttling Transfer rate as we have. Because it is hard to figure out what are the Transfer possibility from a DP to a Device, if we can have the same setting for rate limits as we have in DP properties where the transfer calculation is build implace.

  15. Add MAC addresses to Heartbeat Discovery data

    We find ourselves trying to go from MAC address to device in the console fairly regularly, especially when troubleshooting things like PXE from the logs (which only shows MAC address) and needing to kill off failed OSD records (which may be named "Unknown" or have a random computer name in ConfigMgr, but you're now in WinPE ready to kick off the TS again).

    If the MAC Address information was pulled with Heartbeat discovery, it could easily be used to filter the device list and find the resource .As the information rarely changes, it seems like it would be very lowā€¦

  16. Migration: View only objects that have not been migrated

    When running the migration wizard to migrate SCCM 2012 to SCCM CB (1710) I would like there to be an option in the 'select objects to migrate screen' to 'show only non-migrated objects' so you can easily find objects which have not been migrated yet.

    This is useful to find objects that may have failed a previous migration and you want to re-run them.

    Expose more of the properties from ADR deployment settings as column headings in the lower-section "Deployment Settings" box when viewing ADRs in the console. For example, schedules, user experience, download settings, etc.

  18. Custom Tab for Monitoring Deployments

    Any chance you guys could make an option to have a custom tab for monitoring deployments? I use the Powershell App Deployment Toolkit and it sends error code 60012 when the user defers the installation, It would be nice if I could create a custom tab for that error code with a custom pie color that lets me know how many users have selected the defer option. Or at least make it so I can label my errors, I have tried using Return Codes but the error name and description is always Unknown Error (60012) inside the console.

  19. Windows Installer - Provide GUI for installation

    Instead of providing a GUI to specify the MSIEXEC command line for the MSI installer type, please provide a GUI that allows the desired check boxes, a path for a log (and drop down for log level), and a tab for PATCH to specify patches, and a PROPERTIES table to add properties to a list. It is misleading to even put "MSIEXEC" in the installer, if you remove it, it just breaks the install.

    When importing a MSI file the default Deploment Type should include the /quiet /norestart switches on both the install/uninstall. It should also default the logs toā€¦

  20. Run Scripts - Show Status

    It would be nice if there was a way to go directly to Script Status from the Scripts tab in the console (Software Library\Overview\Scripts). Currently you have to go to the monitoring tab, then click on Script Status, then locate the script deployment.

    Ironically you can get directly to the Scripts tab from Script Status by clicking on the Scripts shortcut under Related Objects. So something similar to this method except from the Scripts section would be nice.

    OR

    Display the Script Status below the currently highlighted script?

    I threw together an example of what it could look like.
