End-User Experience of Windows 10 Co-Management.In this post, I will cover the Windows 10 Co-Management end-user experience. I have a series of posts on the Windows 10 co-management topic, and this is the last post on that series.
Microsoft is still performing design changes in co-management topics, which is expected to get more interesting in later versions of SCCM. I did all my co-managements posts with SCCM 1802 product release.
This post is my post number 10 (ten) to help you configure Windows 10 Co-Management in a lab environment. I recommend reading Microsoft documentation to get the latest update about the co-management features. I have attached Microsoft documentation links in all of my blog posts to make it easy.

User Communication Management of Windows 10 Co-Management
The real-world end-user experience of using SCCM and Intune co-managed Windows 10 devices differs from normal SCCM-managed devices.
We should communicate this change to end-users and support teams. This change in communication will make their life easy. I hope SCCM and Intune product teams are working to improve the end-user experience of co-managed devices.
What is the tool they want to use for application installation?
Software Center? Application Catalog? Intune Company Portal/ https://portal.manage.microsoft.com/Apps ? Windows Store for Business?
Windows 10 Co-managed Device – How to Refresh SCCM/Intune Policies?
As mentioned in the SCCM 1806 TP post, users or admins can now sync the Intune and SCCM policy refresh from one place (download client policy or SCCM client agent).
This MDM sync will automatically happen when you change the workload switch settings in co-management configuration properties. You don’t need to do the sync from both the management tools like Intune MDM setting and SCCM client agent settings.
SCCM CB 1806 (TP) client actions from a co-managed device automatically synchronize MDM policy from Microsoft Intune. This sync also happens when you initiate the Download Computer Policy action from Client Notifications in the SCCM console.
How to Install SCCM client on Intune Managed Windows 10 Device?
I have an Intune-managed Windows 10 device. This post will show the experience of getting that device into SCCM management. As discussed in the previous post, I have deployed a required SCCM client application from Intune to this Windows 10 device.
You can check the status of the SCCM client deployment from https://portal.manage. microsoft.com/Apps. As you can see in the video tutorial, the content is downloaded from the cloud DP, and the client got installed.
The co-management status of the Windows 10 device got updated in the SCCM console only after a couple of policy refreshes.

SCCM Orchestration with Intune for the following workloads
SCCM can offload the workloads to Intune for the following workloads. As I explained in this post, SCCM can take care of Intune workloads like application deployment. SCCM can be used for deploying complex MSI applications for a co-managed device.
Compliance Policies Device Configuration (Available with SCCM TP 1805 or later) Resource Access Policies (WiFi, VPN profiles) Endpoint Protection Configuration Policies Office Click-to-Run Apps (Available with SCCM TP 1806 or later) Windows Update Policies (Patching without on-prem WSUS/SUP)
SCCM Client Status from the Control Panel Applet
Following are the Windows 10 co-management properties for the SCCM client applet. There are 55 co-management capabilities with SCCM 1802 production version.
The co-management feature should be enabled in the SCCM client applet when a device is co-managed.
- Client Certificate: Self-signed
- Co-management Capabilities:55
- Co-Management: Enabled
- Connection Type: Currently Internet
In the screenshot below, you can see that the connection type was Currently INTRANET. The connection type is changed to Currently Internet after a couple of policy refreshes.
Once all the policies are delivered to the client, the status is changed to “Currently Internet” in the SCCM client applet in the control panel.
SCCM Console – How to check Windows 10 Co-Management Status of a Device?
As you can see in the video tutorial, check whether the device is enabled for co-management from the SCCM console. You may need to add the column “Co-Managed” to get co-management information in the SCCM 1802 console.
Intune Portal – How to check Windows 10 Co-Management Status of a Device?
As you can see in the video tutorial, check whether the device is enabled for co-management from Intune portal. All devices tab in Intune blade will help you video the co-managed status of a Windows 10 device.
