  2. Delete multiple Deployments from a Collection

    Can we have an option to delete multiple deployments from a given collection?

    For Example. Class A may have 10 Application deployments to it. If I want to remove them, I have to delete each deployment one by one. I would like the option to select multiple deployments and click delete once, rather than 10 times. Perhaps a right-click menu option on the collection to 'Remove all deployments'?

  3. More flexibility in deployment schedule for ADR deadlines

    It would be nice to have the same scheduling options available in the ADR eval schedule and the deployment schedule. I have multiple release deployments that occur on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Thursday. If the ADR deployment available and deadlines had those options it would be cool...

  4. Run Scripts - Show Status

    It would be nice if there was a way to go directly to Script Status from the Scripts tab in the console (Software Library\Overview\Scripts). Currently you have to go to the monitoring tab, then click on Script Status, then locate the script deployment.

    Ironically you can get directly to the Scripts tab from Script Status by clicking on the Scripts shortcut under Related Objects. So something similar to this method except from the Scripts section would be nice.

    OR

    Display the Script Status below the currently highlighted script?

    I threw together an example of what it could look like.

  5. rate limits for client, instead or BITS throttling Transfer rate

    It would be super cool to set rate limits for Transfer to Clients in Clients settings, instead of setting hardcoded Throttling Transfer rate as we have. Because it is hard to figure out what are the Transfer possibility from a DP to a Device, if we can have the same setting for rate limits as we have in DP properties where the transfer calculation is build implace.

  6. Add description field to the Duplicate hardware identifiers

    I've gone through and added several USB NICs and docking stations used for imaging purposes, but there is no easy way to know why any particular Mac (or hardware GUID) is in the list.

    So the list will only grow even though NICs will be lost, hardware platforms retired, but the list will always be growing.

  7. Script should report non-responding workstation names

    When running a script against a collection, some workstations are not accessed, it would nice to know which ones and if possible why? Not on? Client not responding etc. But at the very minimum the machine names and if possible the primary user name.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Deploy and Update VSCode natively

    Similar to how you integrated Edge deployment and maintenance into CM, could you do the same for VSCode?

    Pretty much the same as this, but for vscode

  13. Task Sequence - Restart Step - Allow Shutdown

    Add an option to the "Restart Computer" Step to have it shutdown instead of restart.

    Use Case: We are using ConfigMgr OSD to build reference images in VMWare for VDI. We need the ability to take clean snapshots along the way for auditing and spinning off variations.

    In the TS, we'll trigger a micro service on an automation server to control the VMWare vCenter and take a snapshot once the VM is shutdown, then turn it back on.

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

    Newer Components like

    ā€‹- BusinessAppProcessWorkerā€‹
    - SMSCloudConnectionSTSWorkerā€‹
    - SMSDataEngineā€‹
    - SMS
    PhasedDeploymentā€‹
    - 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\

  15. Allow console extensions to dynamically set visibility for their actions

    Add a way for ConfigMgr console extensions to hide actions based on an assembly call. Right now we can disable an ActionDescription element using the ActionStateAssembly, but it would be nice to be able to hide elements as well. Ideally, this would have the same method signature as the current ActionStateAssembly signature, so we can easily switch between enabling / disabling an action, and showing / hiding an action. Suggested XML / method signature attached.

  17. 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.

  18. Include User OU membership as a field

    Add a field to the Users that shows what AD Site they are members of. This is similar to the AD Site view for Computers, just also apply the same type of visibility to the Users so we can easily determine where those users are across the Enterprise. This would help with validating theat their priary devices are in the correct device AD OU for management.

  19. Add WakeOnLan Option to the Collection Maintenance Windows

    Add WakeOnLan option to the Collection Maintenance Windows to send out a WOL packet at the start of the Maintenance Window. There is a WOL option on the Power Management tab which works in most cases and there are other work-arounds but doesn't it make more sense to have a WOL option at the start of the MW?

  20. Make SCCM Database Page Compression Check Enabled Part of Pre-req check

    Just upgraded from 1910 to 2002 and the upgrade failed and had to open a support case. Bottom line our SQL DBA made unauthorized changes to SCCM database and enabled PAGE compression on 370 tables in the SCCM database.

    Please add to the pre-req check the running of this SQL query if any tables are set to PAGE data compression fail the pre-req.

    SQL to Check: SELECT t.name AS tablename,
    i.name AS indexname,
    p.datacompressiondesc
    FROM sys.tables AS t
    INNER JOIN sys.indexes AS i
    ON t.objectid = i.objectid
    INNER JOIN sys.partitions AS p
    ON i.objectid =ā€¦
