  1. Add button to add Automatic Deployment Rule Criteria to a new custom search

    Would be nice to create a new custom search from an Automatic Deployment Rule.

    Add a button near the "Preview" that will create a new custom search or replace an existing one.

  2. Software Update Group - Force a Restart as soon as the installs are done

    It would be great to have an option to force a restart as soon as a software update group deployment is done installing. Currently, as an example, if you set up a deployment to start on a Tuesday with a forced deadline install on Friday and someone kicks off the install on Tuesday and isn't paying attention to the toast notifications, the machine could be in a staged state until the forced restart on Friday. Along with this, if the user isn't paying attention that the updates are done installing, the next time they restart before the deadline restart happens,ā€¦

  3. PowerShell Cmdlet to collections & deployments for a computer

  4. When entering NEW IP Subnet convert them to IP Range

    Since you need to enter the subnet mask when entering an IP Subnet, it would make sense to convert these to IP Ranges. Then add the subnet details to the description. The major benefit of this is to allow for better boundary reporting. Using the table BoundaryEx which listed the NumbaricValueLow and NumericValueHigh value you can easily determine if a client belong to that IP Range. This is done by using the fnGetNumericIPAddress function.

  5. Window buttons disappear after waking from sleep

    Strangely, the window buttons (minimize, maximize, close) disappear after my computer wakes from sleep. They're still there, but just become invisible.

  6. Rerun failed task sequence steps

    Customers are using Task Sequences to organize and build complex processes. Sometimes several steps fail. It would be great to have not only an option to rerun the whole task sequence, but only execute the failed steps or begin the sequence in the first failed step. This could help to reduce failed deployments.

  7. Allow non AD integrated SMTP servers for alert meail notification

    When configuring authenticated SMTP only AD style credential (domain\username) are supported.

    This prevent thar organizations with smtp server that authetictes against other than AD identity providers can be used.

    It would be desirable to allow the use of arbitrary authenticated SMTP server.

  8. Automatic icon download in Application Catalog for known vendors

    With ConfigMgr recently changing the icon size to a high resolution spec it has created a world of hurt and a manual task to create the icons again.

    ConfigMgr should provide a feature that auto includes icons / logos for known vendors from a central repository. It would cut down a lot of time for admins around the world and keep the catalogue looking pretty and consistent.

  9. Hierarchy update status for site systems

    Please add an update status for the site systems when upgrading to a new CB.
    It is required to have an update status for the entire hierarchy, not only the site server as it is today.

  10. Conditional Access based on the latest Windows 10 build

    You should be able to create a conditional access rule that only the computers with the latest Windows 10 build can access corporate resources.

    The latest version is required because it might introduce new security features or some other functionality.

  11. Snap to grid

    It would be so handy to have a "View Grid" option in the Report Builder design view with a "Snap to grid" feature. This will make designing the reports so much easier to align objects and text boxes etc.

  12. Add vendor description to update search parameter (product)

    When you add 3rd party drivers/software/firmware updates to update catalog, you can only filter updates by names that might get confusing when you have multiple vendors. Right now the product for HP is either Firmware/Software/Driver. We can only assume Lenovo, Dell, ... Will have the same and it Will be confusing. HP Driver/HP Software/HP Firmware would make more sence and make filtering easier.

  13. content library logging

    Could logging for content library be improved.
    Recently had a situation where the ini, sig files weren't created in the FileLib. Noticed the logs weren't helpful when it came to actions managing the content library on distribution points. This made resolving difficult.

  14. Dynamic Variable switch/case

    Instead of making a dozen If/Then/Set dynamic variable statements, allow some form of creating a switch statement to assign variables.

    E.g. if I want to assign a variable based on SMSTSModel
    Switch
    SMSTSModel
    case "Latitude 5600"
    Set MyVar = "Value"
    case "EliteBook G4 840"
    Set MyVar = "Value2"
    case Default
    Set MyVar = ""

  15. Add size column to application deployment types

    It would be useful if in the console each application deployment type had its own "Size" column, and maybe the application itself could have a "total size" column of all the deployment types combined.

  16. An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it.

    An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it. This will help manage DP disk space efficiently as most of the content never gets used at a remote site but we do not know what's really needed in advance. With semi annual channels the content problem is getting worse each day.

    Below is the config manager thread I had opened and an expert asked me to submit a request here.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. View Collection Dependencies
