        In the console you can currently force a policy update for a Windows computer. I would like this option to be available for mobile devices.

        • Expand Windows 10 Servicing to include (monthly) Quality updates

          In the Windows 10 Servicing node, we have the ability to easily defer feature updates, using the sliders and the ability to place systems into a CB or CBB state. This same functionality should exist for quality updates. You're able to defer/pause both Quality and Feature updates this way, using Windows Update for Business and that same level of control should exist in CM as well.

          • Ability to schedule the deletion of applications in Retired State

            I would like the ability to change the default 60 day time limit that deletes applications that are in a retired state. Would be great to have the ability to change that setting added under maintenance tasks.

                  • Share package with correct access accounts and a way to make the share of each distribution point accessible from a DFS path.

                    Sometimes, we need to make Tools or offline binaries available for the end users or their applications : updates path specified with GPO, Operational Tools for IT, backup executables to be available fast in case of issue (no time to make a new package)....
                    We used distribution point for that with package and its features :
                    - Manage Access Accounts
                    - Share name into "Data Access" tab of package properties.
                    However, that's only create the folder with the good access and the share have default access that doesn't fit what you need.
                    So, first, we would like share with the…

                    • Provide the ability to refresh site server content

                      DP's occasionally fail to get content because it has not got to the site server. Updating or redistributing does not fix this situation. The ability to refresh site content would be helpful. See https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/312d86e3-e793-4147-97a7-7785295e4986/problem-with-stuck-distribution-points?forum=configmgrgeneral for a work around which is messy.

                      • Run a GPUPDATE after Application Install Option

                        In some instances, it would be valuable to have an application to silently run a "gpupdate /force" once the application installation has completed (and potentially before it hands off for the detection method). In the past if I've had a need for this I've had SCCM trigger a reboot on completion of the installation, but I'd rather not have this as it impacts the user.

                        • Run program from a package as a remediation step.

                          Today you have to ability to run JScript, Windows PowerShell or VBscript scripts to remediate condition on Clients in ConfigMgr. But sometimes runing a program from a package would also be a very useful. Example, run a reboot program like the Cortech Shutdown tool if computer/server is non-compliant.

                            In Windows 10 Creators Update, the Windows Defender AV client uploads suspicious files to the cloud protection service for rapid analysis.

                            In SCCM, we can see al malxare detected by the traditionnal Windows defender AV (working with definition).
                            Can we aad a report on malware (or suspicious files) detected by the Cloud protection service ?

                              would be great if we could set security scopes on deployments. we offer sccm as a service to multiple groups using RBA. one group provides applications that can be viewed by all other groups. unfortunately they cannot see all of the deployments made from these applications as they only have visibility to their own devices/collections.

                                Software Inventory Takes Couple hours to complete today. currently we dont use any indexing or search technique to de an incremental search for only files which has been added or deleted based on timestamp. It does a full search every time inventory job runs and it will take similar amount of time every time it runs.

                                • ADD a "Stop After Date/Time" on deployments scheduling tab

                                  We have production deployments that need to stay in place until the pilot deployment becomes the new production application and the change window opens. It would be nice to be able to schedule the deployment to turn off like you can tell one to turn on at a certain time. Today we must delete the old deployments before the new one starts. Being able to schedule the stop deployment would better enable us to stage / coordinate deployments.

                                    I would like to see a way to do right click a collection and do a Disk Cleanup, a Defragment Hard Drive all with policy settings in place so that we can do simple maintenance on machines. Reimaging sometimes ISN'T the best option when users have finicky software installed.
                                    My goal is to free space, optimize the hard drive maybe even with a task sequence.

                                    • User/Device Collection Import Feature

                                      I would like to see a feature in the Configuration Manager console, similar to downloading a template in Office apps, for User and Device Collections. Adding a way for the community to also share collections in this repository would be nice as well.

                                      • Sccm client resets its policies and download new ones every couple of days

                                        Sccm client reset its policies and download new ones every couple of days, it should delete it's policies, inventory and then download new policies, perform inventory and perform a DDR. I currently have a script that does this via a scheduled task.

                                        • Put the 'Allow program to be installed from task sequence without being advertised' checkbox in the wizard for Application and Package crea

                                          I'm fed up of missing this option when deploying out. It would be really nice to have this in the wizards for app and package creation rather than being an after thought.

                                          Cheers
                                          Paul
