The overwhelming favorite report in last month’s poll was Patch Compliance Progression by Collection! It now becomes February’s free report, so make sure to email Info AT Enhansoft for your copy. Thank you to everyone who voted!
For each PC within a collection, the Patch Compliance Progression by Collection report will provide you with a count of missing software updates (patches) and the last hardware inventory date.
The deployed state report parameter allows you to select the deployed state of the software update. The deployed states are:
- Yes – The effected software update is deployed within your environment
- No – The effected software update is NOT deployed within your environment
The status count parameter allows you to select whether or not expired software updates are included in the status count. In ConfigMgr, software updates that are expired are still listed. When complying with standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), expired software updates should always be excluded from status counts.
- Yes – Expired software updates are included within the status count
- No – Expired software updates are NOT included within status count
The classification report parameter enables you to select which software update classification to display within the report. The update classifications, listed in order of severity, are: Critical Updates, Security Updates, Definition Updates, Service Packs, Update Roll-ups, Updates, Tools, and Feature Packs.

Stay tuned because tomorrow we’ll preview the reports in this month’s poll.
