There are two types of Collection Views in SCCM.

  • Collection Membership Views
  • Collection Property Views

v_CM_RES_COLL_<CollectionID> Lists all devices that are members of the collection. The device ID, name, client GUID, site code, whether the computer is assigned to a site, whether the computer has been approved, whether the computer is an active client, and so on.
