      The syntax to get speed improvments for the new Add-CMDeviceCollectionDirectRuleMembership cmdlet is super weird, and it's not covered in the help examples.

      Speaking of which, the copy in the help examples on 1806 has some very esoteric verbiage.

      I'd like to see the help updated with easier to read wordings, and an example should be added to demonstrate the quicker syntax.

      On that topic, why does the cmdlet now take both a -Resource or -ResourceID paramsets? The cmdlet has become kind of weird, maybe the old operation mode should just be removed to make it easier to understand.

      The speed gains ARE REAL though, and super impressive. Awesome work team!

        To clarify, assuming I've installed CM to E:\CM, I have to import the module running

        import-module E:\CM\AdminConsole\bin\ConfigurationManager.psd1

        However, if the path were registed as I recommend above, I could run simply

        Import-Module ConfigurationManager

        And it would automatically import. Even better, you don't NEED to import a module first. Module Autodiscovery will import the module for you at the first time that you attempt to use a CM cmdlet on that system. It really *IS* great.

              If you can create an item with Compliance Items, you should be able to delete it to. This is basic CRUD stuff so let's make it happen

                This suggestion needs WAY more attention. I often swap between customer's SCCM environments, and when I get a request like 'Deploy App X to User Y' I have to go to applications and look up the app, then see where it is deployed, then find the colleciton, then change the collection membership.

                Instead, it would be awesome to be able to Right-Click a Collection in the Deployments Screen and have an option of 'Add Computers to Collection', or 'Modify Collection Membership'. Or, it could open the Collection properties instead.

                Take all of my votes, please make this happen.

                        Would love to be able to customize multiple highlighting rules. Furthermore, we should have a shortcut for highlight, and filter. I propose Ctrl+H be switched to controlling highlighting, while CTLT+I be made for filter.

                          I'd like to see this linked from the Task Sequences list under OSD. Let me see a direct link from the Summary tab to hop into the status messages view/report.

                                Totally agreed, this is a big pain point, and I'd love to see it addressed.
