  1. Make installing sccm as easy as choosing a system role

    Setting up a new sccm site server is much more complicated than it should be. We fork out licensing costs and then have to bring in consultants... An installer similar to the vcenter vsphere setup would be awesome, or better yet choose the role and off we go. We just need to provide a naked 2012 or 2016 server and the installer does the rest using the best practices for configuring sql.

    • Automatic refresh/update after you do "Update distribution point"

      When updating a package over "Update distribution point" we always have to click outside of the section/folder in order to get an updated status of the package we are updating. It would be nice to have it automatically refreshed only for that particular software.

      • 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 for…

          • 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)

              • 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.

                • MSI feature management

                  It would be great if the Deployment Types had a feature to manage MSI features.

                  Currently I have a need for it for Microsoft LAPS.
                  All our machines need the CSE feature and select employees need the Management and Management.UI features.

                  Using the default detection method making two different applications with the same MSI, installing different features, will result in the second application to run to evaluate as installed before it runs.
                  Making detection methods for the different features of an MSI can be difficult work.

                  An ability to manage the features in an MSI via Deployment Types and Detection…

                  • Make Progress Status messages descriptive

                    The Create Task Sequence Media Wizard reports very basic information during the creation, eg. Processsing 0% or 14 % etc but what is it progressing? As you cannot see this information and the processing status resets to 0% multiple times.

                    Would be helpful to know what it is doing!

                    • 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 other…

                      • Asset Intelligence for hardware requirements

                        Under Asset Intelligence for hardware requirements can you add TPM? with Cred Guard, Device Guard, BitLocker and other new features coming from Microsoft this would be a nice check to have built-in.
