MEMCM 2203 has been released with some great features that I need to write about. Must be one of the releases that includes most the top request features like Escrow BitLocker Recovery Key to MEMCM in a Task Sequence, Dark Mode! and Icons for Task Sequences and packages.
Escrow BitLocker Recovery Key to MEMCM in a Task Sequence
This has been a gap ever since the MBAM standalone features was assimilated in MEMCM. We used a script before which is no longer supported and caused an issue as well if use a couple of versions ago.
See screenshot from docs below, https://docs.microsoft.com
That makes this new Task Sequence step a great addition!
Dark Mode is a highly requested feature to quote a colleague “Wow I no longer need sunglasses when working in the CM console” It is a pre-release features that needs to be activated before it can be used.
Icons for Task Sequences and packages
This must also be one of the most requested features out there all time! Icons for Task Sequences and Packages. Finally a more user friendly experience!
Run script and Client Notification from Deployment Status
These types of updates are my personal favorite, the small ones that makes a big impact. Being able to run script and client notification actions from deployment status is a huge time saver. Love it!
Management Insights : Deprecated and unsupported features.
Most likely one of the feature in MEMCM that is most underestimated. Great insights in cleanup and making your site perform optimal, now with a new category which shows status for deprecated and unsupported features as shown below. A great help in what cleanup needs to be done!
Run script in temporary device node
When using temporary device nodes, device actions like Run Scripts are now available to make the experience in the console consistent. Again one of those smaller improvements which has makes it possible to run script in temporary nodes which has been annoying that it wasn’t possible.
Delete collection references
When deleting a collection we now can select all dependent collections and delete them. I will use this with caution but it is a great improvement.
There are many more great features. Check out the complete documentation at docs https://docs.microsoft.com
Truly great work by the Configuration Manager team, closing some of the top requested features!!
