  1. Allow custom icons in software center for Task Sequences

    Split this item from a bigger umbrella item.
    This is to specify an icon per App Task Sequence in the Software Center.

  2. Add "Uninstall Application" option to Tasksequence

    It is possible to "Install Application" in a Tasksequence. It would be nice to be able to "Uninstall Application" too.

  3. Make ConfigMgr work with Autopilot and Enrollment Status Page (ESP)

    When deploying a device using Autopilot, the Enrollment Status Page (ESP) is used to prevent access to the desktop until the device provisioning tasks are complete. But ConfigMgr doesn't integrate with the ESP, so there's no way to wait for packages, apps, or task sequences - the user doesn't know when the process is done. Add that integration.

  4. Native 802.1x Support for Enterprise Operating System Deployments

    Provide Support 802.1x Natively w/o the use of prestart up scripts in WinPE. Many large organizations have protected network infrastructure for their environments that want to be able to easily utilizes the Deployment feature on these protected networks.

  5. Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages

    Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages, pretty much like it works for normal packages (applications). This would reduce the number of hardcoded Apply Driver Package in the task sequence.

  6. Bootimage download with HTTP instead of TFTP

    Downloading the boot image with TFTP is slow and download may fail within slow or unreliable networks.
    Downloading with HTTP or iSCSI will increase the speed dramatically and the stability is improved also.
    With iPXE this technology is implemented and works fine.
    My idea is to implement the HTTP download with SCCM.
    This would be a great enhancement to performance and stability in the OS deployment.

    Hi. I’m setting the status back to Noted – this was mixed up with the item “Add support for TFTP Window Size” – that has been Started and is available in the 1603 tech preview build.

    Thanks,
    BobMN on behalf of SangeeV for SCCM OS Deployment

  7. Allow us to pre-provision appx application types in the Task Sequence

    ConfigMgr supports .appx deployment, but sometimes we want these on every machine, so our preferred way would be to do this in the Task Sequence.

    Currently, the Add Application step in the Task Sequence doesn't let us browse for .appx packages.

    Please consider adding support these during OSD.

  8. Support OSD over Wireless

    As more and more devices are shipping without wired network adapters, and more business areas are going "wireless only," the traditional ability to reimage a device in place is getting scarce. This is especially true in primary and secondary education institutions.

    Please provide support for adding Wireless drivers to WinPE, and the ability to provision wireless network profiles for the WinPE phase of the task sequence to enable imaging over wireless network connections.

    Updating this item as there’s support for Windows 10 In-place upgrade using the Cloud Management Gateway – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1802
    Adding this in case some folks missed it or Win 10 In-place upgrade addresses their requirement.

    I recognize this it not full OS Deployment as there’s no WinPE phase (WinPE has no wireless stack)

  9. OSD - Deploy TS to User groups

    Would be nice to be able to advertise Task Sequences to specific users or groups. We have some operating system deployments that we would like only certain users to run, support staff for instance.

  10. Start ProgressUI after reboot in Task Sequence at logon screen (non OS TS)

    When you use Task Sequences (TS) to deploy software (non OS TS) and there is a reboot inside of the TS there will be no ProgressUI at the logon Screen after the reboot. So you can't see the Progress of the running TS or there is a TS running.
    If You logon, after a short time the ProgressUI will start.
    We started a MS Case (REG:116092814729429): This is a expected behavior because it's not planned for out of WinPE stage.

    Please implement the start of the ProgressUI after the reboot inside of the TS, so we can see the Progressā€¦

  11. windows 10 upgrade servicing

    Support SUP/ESD/WSUS/update-based packages via the "Upgrade Operating System" task sequence step so that task sequence-driven upgrades can benefit from the smaller size of the ESD files (2.5GB) compared to the full media used today (3.5GB).

  12. Mark easy way to query Driver Versions of all drivers on a system.

    Please make an easy way to query Driver Versions of all drivers on a system from SCCM Hardware inventory without creating a custom MOF or looking at registry files? I found a forum thread on TechNet a few years old that said Microsoft said that using WMI class win32_pnpsigneddriver was unreliable and is why it was not available in SCCM hardware inventory and they were considering removing the class entirely. However the class remains in win 10 and is still the only way to query driver version using a script. It would be really useful to be able to haveā€¦

  13. Apply all deployed applications step in OSD

    A step during OSD that queries SCCM for the applications deployed to a machine. If any are deployed to collections the machine is a member of they are installed one at a time, performing any restarts untill the whole list is complete. This should be an integrated step rather than implemented inconsistently by third-parties in PS or IIS

  14. Allow us the ability to view all variables and their values that are available in a task sequence (both built-in and custom) via a gui

    While testing some new functionality in SCCM 1602 current branch I inadvertently searched for a possible new variable using the 'set dynamic variable' step.

    Unfortunately that doesn't list read only variables in the 'existing variables' list (read only variables begin with _). It would be awesome if this gui would list all built-in variables (including read-only ones) as this would make searching for a particular variable easier than having to google or bing it.

    Secondly, how about the option to list all custom defined variables in this gui, along with their values (if any). today we get the following headingsā€¦

  15. Windows 10 Servicing Customization

    It would be great to be able to customize the Windows 10 image or allow a "clean up script" to run post install. I like the concept of the Windows 10 Servicing part of the SCCM console. I think it will become important as upgrades start rolling out 1-2 times a year and majority of companies have Windows 10 clients that need servicing. Being able to create Servicing plans will help keep IT on top of the upgrade process through different updates.

    The current model just doesn't work for a lot of companies. Not many places allow games such asā€¦

  17. Add the ability to deploy and manage drivers post OS deployment

    what would be great to see is a mechanism which would allow for the deployment of drivers to client computers post the OSD. ideally it would be fantastic if it can use the same driver package as is used in the OS Deployment to save the administrative overhead needing to have 2 different ways to deploy updated drivers like we need to today where we package the drivers for OS deployment, while to deploy to the existing hardware we need to depend upon the vendors installation package which in some cases don't allow silent installation so requires a large amountā€¦

  18. Download Package Content - Dynamic Option

    Modify the Download Package Content step to include a dynamic option similar to the Install Package step (see attached mock up). This will allow the ability to selectively download content that is not a direct task sequence reference. When deploying the task sequence, the direct references (common to every system) can be downloaded ahead of time and then the system specific items can be downloaded selectively at TS run time. OSDDownloadContent.exe already performs a dynamic content location request, which is super useful when needing to pre-cache or download driver packages, BIOS packages and other items that are machine specific.

  19. Include the serviceui.exe functionality in task sequence environment by default

    Many organizations create their own front-ends for ConfigMgr Task Sequences (or leverage popular third-party ones like OSD++, Pretty Good Front End, etc.). However, these only are able to be used when the task sequence is in WinPE.

    Please add the serviceui.exe functionality into the default task sequence environment so it is possible to display Light Touch prompts when starting the task sequence from an existing operating system. Including serviceui.exe would be enough, or the functionality to launch interactive UI could be added to the environment natively.

    This should address some of the asks here, please try it out and let us know your feedback.

  20. Task Sequence Version Control

    Please create a function to enable task sequence versioning. This feature would be very helpful for reverting back to a previous task sequence as well as accountability for the last user that modified the task sequence.

    We write a lot of WMI queries as well as set various task sequence variables. These settings change over time and it would be a great feature to look back on a previous version to view the changes as well as the last user modification.

    We currently make copies of our task sequences for this archival purpose. This process works for us now, butā€¦
