As mentioned in the previous post (https://larsnorman.wordpress.com/2012/04/03/cm12a-few-hidden-gems/) System Configuration Manager has a few small innovations that deserves some attention.
One of these is “SCCM Console Builder”. Besides the fact that we here have a Microsoft tool using the moniker SCCM the tool is also interesting for what it does:
SCCM Console Builder allows you to edit the .xml files used to define the administrative console and as such is mostly of interest to people customizing the console either to provide “right click solutions” or for people developing add-ons.
A few screenshots
As you can see the navigation on the left hand side closely resembles the actual admin console.

The tool can be found in AdminConsole\Bin\AdminUI.ConsoleBuilder.exe
