  1. Improvements for search functionality

    When searching, allow multiple "AND" filters on the same criterion. For example, when viewing All Windows 10 Updates in Windows 10 Servicing, I'm currently seeing 798 items. I can filter by language to reduce that, but I'd also like to filter on the title multiple times to exclude editions such as 'Education N', 'Pro N' and 'Team' but I can't because when I add a second Title filter, it automatically puts an "OR" operation next to it.

    Also, when searching for objects like Collections or Apps in a large sub-folder structure, would it be possible to include a column in…

    • Client notification for Grace Period-show when install will occur

      Client notifications (application/update deployment) associated with the new grace period feature should display a countdown notification so users are informed of the installation deadline and the amount of time remaining in the grace period. All to ensure they know how much time they have to complete their work.
      E.G “Deployment will become mandatory in “X” number of hours (or minutes)”

      • Integrate command prompt/psexec To console

        It would be nice if you could open remote command prompt to client from console. Like psexec \\client cmd, system account could be used.

          • Apply CI/Baseline as an action on a failed compliance policy

            In tech-preview 1606 an awesome feature has been added that let's you take an action on a compliance policy if it is not met.

            What would be awesome would be the ability to apply a configuration item/baseline on the non compliant device.

            E.g. If an intune device such as iOS has a malicious threat installed (combined with the compliance setting maximum threat level an action to remediate the threat by applying a configuration item that completely locks down that device)

            See Suzanne Grant (Intune MSFT) for full scenario. Great work guys!

            • Windows 10 servicing plan

              Being able to deploy the same servicing plan to multiple collections the same way we are able to create multiple deployments for the same update ADR so we don't need to create multiple servicing plans for the same updates.

              i know i can add the deployments manually to the software update group but it would be nice if it was done automatically

              1 servicing plan, 1 update group, 1 deployment package

              • Software Center -> Installation Status - includes the version column

                The Applications Tab shows the version Column, it would be nice to have the option availabe in the Installation Staus also. If you have mulitple versions of the same application (eg VMWare vSphere) unless you click into it you cannot see the version number.

                    • AD Group Discovery

                      It would very helpful if AD Group Discovery had the capability to bring in attributes for the group, just like AD User Discovery has this capability. example ManagedBy attribute. When writing SSRS reports this would be very helpful.

                      • ADR-Search criteria (Software Updates)

                        when creating/editing ADR, the list of software updates (products, languages, etc) should list only the information that has been selected on the sup information.

                        ie. it should not list all products or languages if you only have selected english and windows 10.

                        • Allow Maintenance Windows To Work correctly with include rules

                          When you add an include rule to a collection that has a maintenace window the machines that were "included" never get the maintenace window for that collection.

                                • Change how reboot settings are configured

                                  Reboot configurations are set per-client. I would like the ability to do this per-deployment. It can currently be done through creative collections, but it's time-consuming to maintain. Just adding a couple of fields to the deployment table for reboot override behavior ought to do it.

                                    In SCCM 2012 R2 you could start software center with a specific start page using then command line arguments "StartPage" and "FilterType". We relied on those when triggering software center from our internal Tools that our users were familiar with. Please bring them back again.

                                    • Boolean options in Software Update Search

                                      Searching for the right software updates is a chore without the ability to choose between AND and OR. For example, if I want to see all updates released since a certain date, but want to exclude both Itanium and Windows Embedded updates, I can't do this by title. If I exclude "title includes Itanium", but then want to also exclude "title includes Embedded", the Boolean automatically chosen is AND, which doesn't give any results since there are no updates with both words in them. Please create the ability for us to choose our Boolean joiners.

                                      • Filter built-in reports by collection

                                        Many built-in reports can be filtered by site, but I would like to see them modified so they can be filtered by collection.

                                        • Check for running .exe that need to be closed during "removals" and give the User the option to postpone

                                          Microsoft provided the ability to check for and close running applications during install operations. We would really like the ability to perform the same action during removals (and include a comment field to inform the user why these applications need to be closed).

                                          Example: Application X is currently running which halts the removal of application Y. It would be beneficial to detect these running applications, prompt the user to close (or force close after a set time), and allow the removal of application Y to continue.
