Show Collections - Advanced

The Show Collections - Advanced tool lets a console user view information about the collections to which a device belongs. This tool can be run on single devices or multi-selected devices, but not on a device collection.

This tool uses Remote WMI.

To run this tool:

1. In your Configuration Manager console, right-click on a device.

2. Click Right Click Tools > Client Tools > Show Collections - Advanced.

Running the action returns the following information for each collection:

  • Collections: Folder, Collection ID
  • Collection Variables: Folder, Variable Name, Value (if not hidden)
  • Maintenance Windows: Folder, Maintenance Window Name, Description of maintenance schedule, Applies To, Start Time, Duration, Enabled (T/F)
  • Power Plans: Folder, Apply Settings, Peak Plan Start/End/Duration, Peak Plan Name, Non-Peak Plan Name, Wakeup Time

To remove a device from a collection, right-click on the device on the Collections tab and click Remove from Collection.
