  1. Drill Down On Graphs

    when in desktop analytics it would be good if you could click on the orange or red parts of the graph and drill down to see the clients that need attention and updated with latest updates etc.

  2. 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€¦

  3. CB1606 Hardware Inventory - Client Events - Show friendly names

    A new class popped up in CB1606 Hardware Inventory called Client Events. It includes an Event Name (GUID) and a count. Please also include a friendly name for the events.

  4. Allow Boolean Parameter Types in RunScripts

    The addition of Parameters to Scripts was a welcome feature however it'd be nice to also support the boolean parameter type. While other parameter types (arrays, switch, etc.) would be helpful, I feel that most of them could be reproduced (smartly) by using String, or Boolean for most situations.

  7. Add tab for Antimalware Policies on Collection view similar to Device view

    Although AM Policies are deployed to Collections just like Custom Client Settings, there isn't a tab to show you deployed AM Policies on collection console views.

    Bonus points: Look at Device view and Collection view tabs, and make the names congruent ("Custom Client Settings" vs. "Client Settings")

    Super Bonus Points: Resultant Set of Antimalware Polies view which has been suggested elsewhere for a long time (https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/10237263-add-a-view-for-resultant-set-of-policy-for-anti-ma
    and
    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8398638-policy-resultant-for-scep-policy-like-clients-sett)

    Super Extra Bonus Points: Resultant Set of Client Settings and Resultant Set of Antimalware Policies should clearly show what pages were set by what policy. (https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/14855388-resultant-set-of-client-settings-should-show-what)

    Thanks!

  8. Allow using a custom icon for software center

    The new branding options in Software Center are fantastic. With the ability to add a logo and web content, it really does look fantastic and users seem to have been receptive.

    The final touch would be the ability to customize the icon on the start menu through client settings. We could do that in a GPO, but it's clunky.

  9. Wake On LAN returns machine to previous state after a customisable time period.

    It's great to be able to wake a machine up from Power Off or Hibernate to deploy software but being able to specify a time to stay awake before returning to the previous state would be great.

    If I wake my client fleet at 0300 for a deployment which takes (say) 15 minutes, it is a waste of power to leave 2000 machines awake after the deployment.

  10. Content Status in Peer Cache Sources

    We need to see which content is in cache of peer cache source computers. It is possible with SQL query, but there is no builtin screen/menu in console for that. It will ease the management of peer cache source computers in boundary groups without DP

    It can be like 'Content Status' menu for only for Peer Cache Source Computers.

  12. Maintenance Window Templates

    The concept of Maintenance Window Templates would allow an administrator to device pre-configured Maintenance Windows (The timeframes and recurrence schedules) which could then be chosen from when configuring Collection Maintenance Windows. In addition, these same pre-defined Maintenance Windows could be made available (via Software Center, if allowed by the admin) for end users to be able to change the individual system Maintenance Window on demand from that pre-defined list.

    This is essentially an expansion on the "Business Hours" feature however it allows the admin to specify maintenance windows which may align with Business Unit or IT Maintenance Window schedules.

  13. Create a client option to clear the Application Catalog history.

    We get occasional complaints from our end users that software they once installed from the Application Catalog (e.g. MS Access 2013) still keeps showing up in their Software Center as "Available" once they have either uninstalled it or have been upgraded to e.g. Office 2016.

    It would be nice to have an option in the SCCM client to clear the history and make it forget about the previously requested applications from the Application Catalog.

  14. Add support for having an apostrophe in a directory name in SCEP Exclusion settings

    If a directory has an apostrophe in it (for example, C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware"), it is not possible to add an exclusion of the directory or a file in the directory as an error dialog states "The path contains one or more of the invalid characters." As it is possible to create a directory with an apostrophe in it, it should be possible to add the directory to the exclusion settings for SCEP.

  15. Reuseable .exe list for closing running Application

    Would be nice to be able to create a default list of .exe's that can be selected for the detection of open apps feature. And/or have CM remember them and keep a running history to dynamically build those exclusions. That way, you don't have to type in the same exclusions over and over, or fat finger them or keep them in notepad to remember.

  16. Button to Temporarily Disable SCEP

    It would be great for both devices and collections to be able to right-click or click a button in the ribbon to temporarily disable SCEP. Many times do we have a piece of software that requires A/V to be disabled to install. We have a collection that disables SCEP, so we move the machine to that collection, and then move it back later, but sometimes you don't get the all clear, or you just get busy. If you could click a button to either disable, or temporarily disable immediately, that would be amazing. I have used other A/V products thatā€¦

  18. Deployment Status - Add additional column for Primary User or Logged on User

    When viewing deployment status (specifically an application or update deployed to a device collection), a simple and easy win would be to add additional column for Primary User and/or Logged on User for all the compliant states (Compliant, In Progress, Error, and Unknown)

    The columns that are currently there are:

    Device
    User
    Software
    Collection
    Status Type
    Deployment Type

    User column does not show helpful information, only SYSTEM.

  19. Option to scheulde a mandatory reboot in maintenance window configuration

    It would be great as part of configuring a maintenance window for a set of computers we could tick a box that would create a mandatory reboot at the beginning or the end of the window. So that even if there is no software or updates the computer will still get a clean reboot.

  20. Maintenance window start date regression in 1606 - year 1970

    We have a 5-minute, non-recurring maintenance window starting 1/1/1970 1:00 AM configured on several critical device collections to prevent reboots due to accidentally-configured deployments - and this worked as of SCCM 1511. In 1606 though, when I try to edit that maintenance window, I receive an un-handled ArgumentOutOfRangeException (Value should be between 'MinDate' and 'MaxDate').

    Creating a new maintenance window starting 1/1/1971 1:00 AM (the UI won't even allow you to set 1970, it'll just flip it back to the previous value) and deleting the older one works, but this is certainly a bug. I don't know yet if otherā€¦
