  1. Make SUP products searchable

    Let's improve the Software Update Point Component Properties window by adding a text input box to allow searching/filtering through the available products.

    Scrolling through the list is not a user-friendly approach. Add to that the rather frequent product name changes and additions.

    A search box would make it easier to find and select the desired products in the list.

  2. Specify multiple wake-on-lan schedules

    With each deployment I'd like to specify multiple WoL schedules.

    Let's say our Maintenance Window is from 9PM-12AM. We do a deployment to only Install and Restart during this time. After the initial MW we see compliance at 80%. Our goal is 90% but what if, at that initial MW, these machines were off their dock, on a shelf, or at home? In this scenario we would almost never hit our compliance level.

    For these scenarios I'd like to say 'Send WoL packets during every Maintenance Window until compliance hits 90%." That may be a bit complex but something in…

  3. Windows Installer - Support PATCH property

    When created a MSI installer deployment type, when I specify the PATCH attribute SCCM should automatically pass in the CURRENTDIRECTORY to the MSP specified. Otherwise a 1635 error occurs as the installer cannot find the MSP. This forces everyone to use a "SCRIPT" installer type and put it in a batch file and use %~dp0.

  4. web application

    The current implementation of Web Applications is very limited. Quite frankly, I'm not sure why this was implemented so poorly: batch files are more flexible than this!

    I'd like to see this expanded in several ways: choices of where to put the icon (start menu, public desktop, user's desktop), appearance of the icon.

  5. "Assignment schedule" column/option to the Deployments tab

    Add "Assignment schedule" column/option to the Deployments tab for Applications and Task Sequence deployments. At them moment we have "Deployment Start Time" which is actually the available time (good to have but not for how much we need it) and not the actual "deployment time" (schedule at/Occurs on), which makes it really annoying when we have important deployments which need to be double checked for the right deployment time.

  6. Ability to add a Management Point Role to a DP hanging off of a Secondary Site

    With the addition of allowing clients to prefer using a management point specified in a boundary group in R2 SP1 (or SP2), it would be a value add to be able to add the management point role to a site server that is a distribution point hanging off of a secondary site.

  7. Create configurable Report of updates / Security Bulletins

    Report would be configurable to have date ranges, vender, security, updates, etc similiar to reports against a given machine. This would be able to be turned into a subscription that can be emailed after a WSUS update is performed. This way the admins can see what has been released since the last WSUS update or a given date for a specific list of update requirements. Never miss an out-of-band notice.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. Add a function to allow downloading files without extension

    In CB 1906 environment, when performing package deployment, if an empty file without extension is included, the content download fails.
    The file name contains double bytes.
    As an additional condition, it occurs on receiving content from peer cache sources.

    The solution is to add .txt to the extension and the download will be successful.
    We hope that files without extension can be downloaded without any problem.

  14. 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.

  15. Trigger log collection from task sequence either automatically or via client action

    The new option in the console for Client diagnostics - Collect Log files, need to be able to trigger option from the client running a task sequence. The reason for this is when a task sequence logic encounters a error and you want to auto capture the logs, this client action will be key to automating the log captures. Also for Windows 10 Servicing where the machine runs on the Internet and capturing the logs works great over the CMG, but again just want to automate the log capture than rather manually capturing the logs.

  16. Automatic selection of distribution point when only one is available

    When a site only has one distribution point, this point should be chosen automatically when distributing content.
    There is really no need for the manual selection process.

  17. New Components should also be affected by the Archive RegKeys

    Newer Components like

    ​- BusinessAppProcessWorker​
    - SMSCloudConnectionSTSWorker​
    - SMSDataEngine​
    - SMS
    PhasedDeployment​
    - WsfbSyncWorker

    should also be affected by the Archive RegKeys:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Tracing\ArchiveEnabled
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Tracing\ArchivePath

    Currently the old Logfile Versions are saved at <InstallDIR>\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs\

  19. Hardware Inventory to collect Certificates

    It would be nice to have the Computers Certificates in the Hardware-Reporting. Yes i know you can collect that infos via CmPivot, but not all hosts are online all the time, so a Hardwarecollection would be nice.
    Something like this but integrated.

  20. 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.
