  1. Improve Task Sequence selection, hide testing task sequences, user based policy availability

    we have 10 Task Sequences accross 10 countries, and 10 test task sequences that show up in the same list. It would be nice to be able to easily hide deployments that are only for testing, and not production. If at the beginning of a T.S. , user domain credentials could be entered, and that would determine T.S. availability. Or they could be greyed out if not to be run by that user.

    • sccm/wsus

      I feel that sccm/wsus requires a lot of improvements:

      1 - software update detections should be improve to analyze and detect missing/required updates
      2- software updates installation should be install in sequence not on which deployment reaches first. should be a way to modified the install base on date and time.
      3- a better scheduling for the deployment that will allow the updates to be install during a flexible time and another for the downloading of the patches
      4- bring back the use of restart and update, or shutdown and update, this were very useful

      I still feel that the…

        • Compress Status Messages on Remote MP instead of using MP Replica

          I run a single Primary Site Server supporting 26K clients. I also have two Regional MP's (Not MP Replicas).

          The stat.box and statemsg.box files regularly fill up with over 20K+ files (supporting only a few thousand clients each) and it takes nearly 10 hours for the MP to send all those files (one by one) to the Site Server over the WAN.

          The bandwidth utilization is minimal (stat.box with 27K files is only about 7MB in size) however sending that many individual files over the WAN is extremely inefficient.

          Compressing these files into a single zip/cab/etc. before sending to the…

              • Add filter bar to the Updates node of Windows 10 Servicing

                In ConfigMgr 1511, the "All Windows 10 Updates" node has no filter bar as we have for Software Updates. There are lots of elements listed and the number will increase with the future Windows 10 Builds.
                It could be very helpful to get a filter bar which allows to filter on languages, build, SKU, etc.

                    Software Metering\Computers that have run a specific metered software program

                    Just add a little quick "Distinct" ResourceID in the sub query of the Dataset 0 could accelerate significantly the execution timing of this report

                      On the Computerinfo-Dialog the only field that is not copy/past-enabled is the MAC-Adress field. Its not a Big Problem but every time i need to use it its not realy nice to write the compleate mac-adress by hand.

                      • Allow Task Sequence Editor to retain the window size from the previous session.

                        The default window is too small to see the window pane contents properly. It always needs to be enlarged. Either make it larger as a default or allow the user to set the size and retain it across sessions.

                        • Windows 10 Version Reporting

                          When checking the Windows 10 Servicing dashboard you get the nice pretty rings. Why is it not possibly to click a ring and show all the devices that are currently on that build you are highlighted over? It's obviously already pulling the information, so why can't you just click the ring E.g the 1511 ring and it shows you the report of machines on that build.

                                • SCCM should support enabling scenarios instead of enabling invidual roles and settings

                                  Today for various E2E scenarios you install the required roles, set client agent settings, and ensure pre-reqs are all installed. I would prefer that I just select to enable a feature, SCCM scans my role servers, makes a suggestion of what needs to be installed where and various pre-reqs that are needed and give me the option to select just do it. At that point everything would get setup automatically in a way that is suggested as best practice by the SCCM product.

                                    • Have remediation option for Compliance to immediately deploy package and run exe or script from package

                                      Sometimes when remediating non-compliant Compliance Items, other files may be required. In order to do this currently, it is necessary to create a collection that queries the compliance status of the compliance item, and then deploy a package to that collection. This adds a delay in processing, as it is now necessary for the collection to evaluate before deploying the package. Additionally, if the collection evaluation runs at a quicker schedule than compliance evaluation, the remediation package may run multiple times before compliance has been updated.

                                      It would be helpful for compliance to have the ability to deploy a package…

                                      • Company Portal Customization

                                        I have a customer that, besides the new features in the Software Center, needs to use the Company Portal to all the +6000 users. The question here is the lack of customization. They want to be able to customize:

                                        1. The two pictures that appear in the Company Portal
                                        2. The color Schema for the tiles in the main page of company portal
                                        3. The Language of the App (that can be done changing the OS language).

                                        They are making a great an d big investment in the new images to their users and are using a clean desktop with…

                                        • Device Collection for Group Membership

                                          Today you can easily create a user collection based on AD Group where the collection has a direct membership for the group. However, this is not true for computers where you cannot add a group to a device collection.

                                          This should be possible as many organizations also create group for computers and having to look for each membership causes a performance issue when you have many groups/group membership
