Published Aug 30 2021 12:22 PM 10.4K Views

Update 2108 for the Technical Preview Branch of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager has been released. You can now export the contents of a grid view in the console along with the column headers to a comma-separated values (CSV) file that can be used to import to Excel or other applications. While you could previously cut and paste from a grid view, exporting to CSV makes extracting a large number of rows faster and easier. You can export either all or selected items from the following nodes:

  • Device Collections
  • User Collections
  • Devices
  • Users

This preview release also includes:

Custom properties for devices in the console - In Configuration Manager current branch version 2107, you can use the administration service to set custom properties on devices. These custom properties let you add external data to a device to help with deployment targeting, collection building, and reporting.


Starting in this technical preview release, you can create and edit these custom properties in the Configuration Manager console. This new user interface makes it easier to view and edit these properties. You can still use the administration service interface to automate the process from an external system.


Improvements to Software Center notifications with logos - In technical preview version 2011, your Software Center logo would also appear in Windows 10 notifications. Starting in this release, when you customize Software Center settings, the logo that you specify for Windows 10 notifications is separate from the Software Center logo.


PowerShell release notes preview - These release notes summarize changes to the Configuration Manager PowerShell cmdlets in this technical preview release.


For more details and to view the full list of new features in this update, check out our Features in Configuration Manager technical preview version 2108 documentation. 


Update 2108 for Technical Preview Branch is available in the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview console. For new installations, the 2106 baseline version of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview Branch is available on the Microsoft Evaluation Center. Technical Preview Branch releases give you an opportunity to try out new Configuration Manager features in a test environment before they are made generally available.


We would love to hear your thoughts about the latest Technical Preview! Send us feedback about directly from the console.
