  1. Resend WOL signal for missed deployments

    Deploying an Application or SUP with a specific 'Deadline' time e.g. 12th februari and 'Purpose: Required' with 'Send wake-up packets' option within a defined Maintenance Windows e.g. 10PM-5AM (total 7 hours) would mean that when our support team deploy a new machine (OSD Deployment) the next day (13th), software would not get installed because during 'Schedule re-valuation for deployments' or 'Software update scan schedule' does not occur no WOL-signal is (re)send for this deployment!

    So offer ways to make sending WOL signal reoccurring.

    • Increase maximum certificate key length for client certs

      The current (1710) maximum key length for client authentication certificates is 2048 bits. Many security-conscious organizations standing up a new PKI in 2017-2018 would prefer a longer key length for all certificates. This requires that the organization lower their standards to utilize computer certificates for computer authentication.

      • Approval Request Archive

        It would be nice to see an option to archive approval/denied requests so that admins can stay focused on current requests. An automated option would also be great to auto-clear after 14 days.

        • An improved console that merged ADUC, GPMC, and SCCM deployments/queries/collections

          Imagine a console like ADUC that let you view GPOs and AD objects alongside each other, with contextual color-tinted overlays that help you visualize where items are applied. It should also display SCCM collections, queries, and deployments.

          • Provide Ability to Export/Import Status Message Queries

            It would be very beneficial to have the ability to natively import and export custom Status Message Queries. I find creating customized Status Message Queries are extremely useful especially for Auditing and tracking OSD status messages. It would be even better if we can export and import to transfer them to multiple environments :).

            There are custom PowerShell scripts out there; however, it would make more sense to have this ability built in the console as we have with Collections, Packages, Applications, and Task Sequences.

            • Add Actions to Software Center

              Could the Actions tasks be added to Software Center? It would save some steps refreshing content.

                • Integrate an Distribution Sender Interpreter

                  Please integrate an Log Interpreter for easier Log Control
                  Such as http://www.danrichings.com/?page_id=12 for Sender Log.

                  This makes the Life for Package Distribution and Server Control easier in an Enterprise Enviroment.

                    • Modify Defaults

                      Allow a default to be created for each and Every object type in the admin console.

                      Applications, Packages, etc.. Allow Every possible setting to be pre-configured with the default choices you want by default. Multiple "templates" creatable for the same object type... Default choice would be based upon RBA. or a global choice if present.

                        • Delayed Membership Rules

                          It would be useful to be able to add a new rule to a collection that does not take affect until a set time. For example, when a collection for software distribution has an advertisement associated to it, you might want to schedule another distribution by adding another collection that includes another group of devices. Right now we accomplish this by creating a new advertisement. It would be better if we could simply link a new collection specifying a date/time that the collection would become available to ingest the existing advertisement.

                          • Remove the option to deleted the members from a collect when the collection is deleted.

                            It seem odd that since you multi-select and deleted user / computers that you would need to have a prompt to delete the users / computers when deleting the collection.

                            The process should be if you need to deleted the users / computers and the collection.
                            - Multi-select and deleted computers. If there is a large number users / computers blocks deleted if number excesses High-Risk deployment settings.
                            - Deleted the Collection
                            - If the collection is limiting another collection. Then prompt if that collection should be deleted too.

                            • Right click to view deployments and collections (and remove)

                              In the console when we right click users and devices add "view assigned deployments" and "view assigned collections" without us needing to go into the properties window. Also give the option to remove them from the collection there as well, without actually having to navigate to the collection. This would be nice for quicker troubleshooting and problem resolution. Also add "view assigned deployments" to the right click menu of collections too.

                                You won't need this option very often, but when you do, you can't...

                                  • Show Task Sequence Properties as its own window on the taskbar

                                    Many times I'm wanting to compare Task Sequences, but as I open them they fall behind other open windows (such as MDT itself). I end up having to minimize or move windows around until I can find both properties windows. The same occurs if I'm looking at a task sequence and then click into a VM, or any other time I'm working at multiple things at once.

                                    • Add wizards for in-console updates

                                      When doing the upgrade to 1602, there is not a very good visual indicator of progress without manually opening a log or moving to the monitoring tab. Would prefer to see a progress window open once the update or pre-req check has been started. (like you get when going through the normal setup)

                                      • When deploying to a SUG and creating a template, the user experience option "If any software update in this deployment ..." is not saved

                                        When deploying to a SUG and creating a template, the user experience option "If any software update in this deployment requires a system restart, run updates deployment evaluation cycle after restart" is not saved. This requires you to have to re-check this each time even after using a previously saved template.

                                        • Fix Pre-Download when using "Run another program first"

                                          If you deploy a Task sequence that has Run another program first checked in properties and you also check pre-download content, the only thing downloaded is the program you want to run first. The program I am trying to run first is a deferral screen for OSD upgrade with user interaction. Either the pre-download should download everything in the task sequence or give you options of what you want to download. When doing OS upgrades with remote users you need everything in place before you can run the task sequence incase they drop vpn.

                                          Thanks,
