  1. Simplify finding the current month's software updates

    Provide a dashboard or view that displays the current month's software updates. Allow for selecting of updates and a button to create a software update group directly. Basically, simplify the process of identifying the updates needed to deploy each month.

  2. Ability to move Distribution point from one secondary site server to another secondary site server' has been merged into this idea

    when we need to remove secondary site server or when need to rebuild secondary site server with another site code. A full uninstall and re install required for all Distribution points associated with that secondary site.
    Also when we need to move a DP from one site code to another site code, it requires uninstall / re installā€¦.to avoid this it will be helpful to have ability to move DPā€™s between secondaries.

  4. View Collection Dependencies

    It would be really nice to be able to see a list of the collections that are limited to a specific collection with a tab on the properties of that collection.

  5. End of Life

    A good feature to include is the ability to scan a server/workstation and find software that is at or nearing end of life state.

  6. Delete Collection UI Issue

    When an administrative user who does not have permission to delete resources tries to delete a collection, the confirmation UI displayed reads as though the resources WILL be deleted due to the missing checkbox. Perhaps changing the UI so that the checkbox is there but grey'd out as unchecked or remove the "Delete each collection member from the database" text.

  7. Possibility to set for how long and deploy application should be ""new"

    I would like the Possibility to set for how long and deploy application should be ""new" in Software Center
    Today it's say every time I log on that i have I new application available in software center.
    I might already have installed or don't want to install it.
    Should be good that we have a setting that control this so we could set it to show 2-3 time or for 1-2 day

  8. Run Scripts: Show PowerShell Intellisense in script editor prompts

    Now that we have the ability in TP1706 to upload and run PowerShell scripts against endpoints, it has exposed the need to be able to tab complete and validate syntax with intellisense from the console. I'm not asking you to recreate the PowerShell ISE/VSCode, just some rudimentary intellisense for when you are working on the Admin Console.

  9. Add "Software Updates Scan Cycle" to the Client Notification Menu

    I'm not sure whether the "Evaluate Software Update Deployments" Client Notificaction runs a previous scan cycle.
    I implemented a Powershell script to do that but I strongly think that it should appear as a Client Notification in the same way it appears in the "Config Manager" Control Panel at the client computers.

  10. ADR add possibility to set a User for "download software updates from a location on my network"

    Please add a possibility to specify a user which the ADR will use to download the content.
    In a infrastructure with a DMZ and a own untrusted domain, it is not possible to set a user which is downloading the Updates from a WSUS. Till now SCCM is always using the system account of the Site Server to download the Updates.

  11. Redistribute all failed content

    Add an option to Redistribute all Content that has failed to distribute to either a specific DP or in general.

    Also having a Maintenance Task that does this automatically would be great.

  12. Application References tab should include Applications in a disabled Install Application Task

    Absolutely love the 'Task Sequences' tab that's been added to Applications in the console, but it seems as though it doesn't report on apps that are in a disabled 'Install Applications' step in a Task Sequence.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Create a View to translate LCID to Name

    There is no view that will list the Language Name to LCID. The view must included "any" used within Software Metering. The closest that exist is the sys.syslanguages but this doesn't not included "any" aka LCID = 65535

  19. Automatic cleanup in Deployment Packages

    It would be great to have the option to enable automatic cleanup of expired/superseeded updates that are in Deployment Packages. Some Deployment Packages grows very large if they are left unattended, for example patches for O365 are large and would be nice to have the option to remove these either while running the ADR or a Maintenance Task. A live example was when I was deploying the latest 2020-01 O365 patches the package was 15GB in size, after removing the past few months patches it shrunk to about 3GB in size.

  20. 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.

    Thanks forā€¦
