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 information on Collections, Collection Variables, Maintenance Windows and Power Plans.

To remove a device from a collection, right-click it on the Collections tab.
