  1. ConfigMgr Web Console

    Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.

    The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.

    With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.

    • Support OSD over Wireless

      As more and more devices are shipping without wired network adapters, and more business areas are going "wireless only," the traditional ability to reimage a device in place is getting scarce. This is especially true in primary and secondary education institutions.

      Please provide support for adding Wireless drivers to WinPE, and the ability to provision wireless network profiles for the WinPE phase of the task sequence to enable imaging over wireless network connections.

      • Software Center: Add categories to maching targetted deployments.

        The new Software Center in 1511 should also categorize Applications using the user category even if it is not deployed to users but systems instead. It should reflect the user category no matter what.

        • Multi Tenant support for Microsoft cloud services integrated with ConfigMgr

          We hear this request a lot, so I'm adding it here.
          ConfigMgr integrates with many Microsoft Cloud Services:
          * WUFB
          * WSFB
          * Windows Upgrade Analytics
          * OMS
          * etc
          For each of the above services, sometimes a company may have multiple tenants. Please allow ConfigMgr to manage multiple tenants for each of these services.

          • Cloud Management Gateway (as CSP)

            With 1610, the Cloud Management Gateway feature arrived. Although it's a Pre-Release feature, as Cloud Solution Provider we're UNABLE to use/implement this. And so are our customers...!

            When you try to set this up from the ConfigMgr console, a prerequisite is the Azure Management Certificate, which can't be configured as CSP-tenant because this needs the Classic Azure Portal (ASM). This is unacceptable for us, as CSP, as we would have to instruct our customers to get an Azure Subscription separately.

            • Maintenance window recurrence pattern offset from a base day

              Allow the recurrence pattern for maintenance windows to be scheduled with an offset from a base day.

              Meaning, if we want a maintenance window on the Wednesday following the Second Tuesday of every month, we could configure a maintenance window for the Second Tuesday with a +1 offset.

              (This would be similar to the offset option added to ADRs in 1802.)

                • Complete Group Policy Integration

                  Configuration Manager should be able to configure all aspects of a workstation that can be done using other Microsoft tools. Some group policy items already exist such as folder redirection and Firewall Policies. It would be great if Firewall could be expanded to include creation of firewall exceptions. It would also be great if we could configure all group policies from within SCCM perhaps using compliance settings.

                  • Request to add support for Distribution Point Maintenance mode

                    Situations where maintenance mode is useful/needed:
                    1. When the system (hardware) is in transit from the location where it was installed to the site where it is to be used in production.
                    2. When the system is down for other maintenance (software patching and updates, OS configuration changes, hardware reconfiguration and other external factors causing planned or unplanned downtime).
                    The above outlined method for installing new DPs to remote locations is widely used for various reasons (For example to have a dedicated team at one location install machine and to avoid having to copy a large content library across WANā€¦

                    • windows 10 upgrade servicing

                      Support SUP/ESD/WSUS/update-based packages via the "Upgrade Operating System" task sequence step so that task sequence-driven upgrades can benefit from the smaller size of the ESD files (2.5GB) compared to the full media used today (3.5GB).

                      • OSD - Deploy TS to User groups

                        Would be nice to be able to advertise Task Sequences to specific users or groups. We have some operating system deployments that we would like only certain users to run, support staff for instance.

                        • Software Center "Sort by" default view

                          Change default "sort by" order from "Most recent" to Alphabetic list (Application name A-Z). Or remember the setting for the client. Or allow a SysAdmin setting for site-wide default setting. It always resets back to Most recent.

                            • Start ProgressUI after reboot in Task Sequence at logon screen (non OS TS)

                              When you use Task Sequences (TS) to deploy software (non OS TS) and there is a reboot inside of the TS there will be no ProgressUI at the logon Screen after the reboot. So you can't see the Progress of the running TS or there is a TS running.
                              If You logon, after a short time the ProgressUI will start.
                              We started a MS Case (REG:116092814729429): This is a expected behavior because it's not planned for out of WinPE stage.

                              Please implement the start of the ProgressUI after the reboot inside of the TS, so we can see the Progressā€¦

                                  This can be done today w/ #SCCM 1802 (and previous versions too). I will mark started… and watch comments for why this doesn’t just work… before I mark this straight up completed…

                                  Steps:
                                  1) On the CAS (or standalone primary), go to Administration → Hierarchy Configuration → Discovery methods
                                  2) right click on Active Directory System Discovery and bring up the Properties form. Active Directory Attributes tab, and then click on Custom. In the form that appears, type the name of the attribute. Click OK, and make sure you have added it as an attribute to discover. Run discovery after exiting properties form.
                                  3) Now when you go to the Devices view and right click on a device and go to its Properties form, you will see the new attribute showing up there.

                                • Exclude Updates

                                  The ability to exclude a single or multiple updates with a simple Right Click > Exclude or Menu item.

                                  • Applications - Provide a means to have other applications run after an application is installed.

                                    There is the ability to specify dependencies for Applications, however the ability to run another Application POST install would be awesome. Often when an application is installed there is a post configuration task that needs to run.

                                    • Prevent Cache Limit from Causing Application Deployment Failure

                                      Once the cache has been filled all subsequent application deployments fail until the cache self-cleans. In CAS.log you see that the client is refusing to download the content because the cache, not the actual disk, is full.

                                      This strikes me as a non-optimal design choice if the goal is to successfully install applications. If I want to install an application I do not want it to fail because of an artificial limit that until very recently was set at the time of client install. Most of the time the cache clears in 24 hours and there's no problem but thereā€¦

                                      • Deploy Package to Multiple Collections at one time

                                        Allow packages to be deployed to multiple collections at one time. For instance I need AppX to go to Lab 1, Lab 2 and Lab4. Instead of going into AppX 3 different times to deploy, it would be nice to deploy it to all 3 labs at one time.

                                        • when double clicking on task sequence open edit page rather then properties

                                          99% of the time when we look at Task sequences we are wanting to edit the steps, not properties. can the default double click on a task sequence be changed from opening the Properties tab to open the Edit Steps page?
