It would be nice to have a list of known and confirmed bugs that Symantec support knows with a plan to fix it and maybe voting system (like in ideas) that we may vote what should be fixed first. With a bug there should be also ETA for a fix (in what release it will be fixed). Sometimes there is a known problem and even whitepapers available but only for internal use and it would be handy to be able to seek and reference something when calling support (obviously I'm not expecting that some ...

Currently the scheduled reports in SEPM emails the report in a .MHT file extention.  Would be great to have other formats to choose from like PDF, DOC, and maybe few image file formats.

(re-posting previously requested item) In the SEPM console today, it is not possible to rename "My Company" on the clients page. We would like to rename this to our actual company name, by right-clicking and entering the new name.

(re-posting a previously requested item) Require Symantec to provide a boot CD (or instructions on how to create one), so we can boot from this CD and fully scan a machine, without having to load Windows. This can be very useful when attempting to detect or remove a stubborn threat / trojan / virus, especially when the threat can't be removed, even via Windows Safe Mode. Being able to also run this via USB key would be ideal.

(re-posting previous requested item) When we export a SEP client package from the SEPM console "Install Packages" view, the exported package contains old content, which means that once that package is installed, the new SEP client will need to retrieve new content from the SEPM or Liveupdate. We know there is a KB article that explains how to add the latest content to an exported package but we would like to see this happen automatically in the SEPM console ...

The variable for the current user's profile (Documents and Settings...) is currently unavailable when creating file and folder exclusions in Centralized Exception policies. I know that this variable exists, as many programs (Internet Explorer, Firefox et all) use it; It stands to reason that exclusions may need to be made there.

When I view clients in the SEPM console I have about 6 pages of them.  I click on Name or some other heading to sort them alphabetically but going to the next page they are unsorted again. I would like to see them all at once like it was in Ver 10.

When we move the mouse pointer or cursor on the Symantec Endpoint Protection icon in the system tray we get the following information.     However it would be great if we can see the below information when we move the mouse pointer or cursor on the Symantec Endpoint Protection icon in the system tray. If this is possible, we need not open the SEP console for viewing the below information.

I see from the forums that we're not the only ones who have problems with the versions of Java that SEPM supports.  So two requests: * Symantec needs to support new versions & patches of Java as they are released.  This may require being a Sun partner so you can get releases for testing before they are released to the general population.  * Symantec needs to provide a simple mechanism for the SEPM user to specify an alternate JRE installation, so that users can have their ...
