  1. Status Update for Task Sequnce content prestage

    add additional statuses to Task Sequence Deployment, so we can see if content was already downloaded when this feature is selected. Similar experience to Application Required deployment. Right now it requires lot of administrative work to check if WS is ready to start TS.

  2. Disk number variable for Format and Partition Disk step

    Sometimes OSD does not put Windows on the drive that we want in systems with multiple drives because of things like raid/SAS controllers or nVME. If you allow a variable to be used for the "disk number" in the format and partition step, a custom UI could be used to select the correct disk number from WMI and send that variable (which is just a number) to the format and partition step.

  3. Standalone Media (FAT32 & NTFS)

    Create standalone media for a partitioned USB with a FAT32 and NTFS partition. The FAT32 partition holds the WinPE boot, the NTFS partition the rest - allowing WIMs and other items over 4GB.

  4. The ability to compare and merge Task Sequences and version after the merge

    I would like the ability to load up a couple of Task Sequences, and have the ability to merge any changes between the two TS's.

    This would assist when importing TS over from a TEST or DEV env or working on test TS in the same environment. Ideally have the option to approve /deny each of the merges before submitting.

    Once merged, version the change to a later increment so neither of the two TS's are saved over?

  5. Built-in step in a task sequence to Auto login as a domain or workstation user

    We have the need to customize the desktop, deploy some user specific apps, as well as setup and configure Outlook and OneDrive. It would be nice to have the ability to have the system automatically log in as the user, provided we have their credentials, so that custom scripts can continue after the task sequence finishes. This is especially true for new hires as we do have their passwords and we make them change it once we turn over the system to them.

  6. Add native multiple harddrives support to OSD TS

    Harddrives enumeration in TS is unclear and unpredictable. I want at first to run posh script from ramdrive to tag one drive as "system", and other as "data" or "keep content", then on next step partition "system" and "data" drives, wipe all legacy boot sectors as an option.

  7. Supported Move OU step in task Sequence

    A supported step to reassign a OU in a task sequence instead of having to rely on vbscripts or powershell scripts to perform this function. Seems this could be based off the network settings step easy.

  8. Integrate Task Sequence Versioning with GIT

    For large enterprises such as the one I work in govt Education, it would be very beneficial for integrating version control via GIT. Every time you check in a new version is saved to GIT.

    Then you can review changes (could be xml or some other format) in GIT, and potentially revert to an older version if the changes are not approved.

  11. More useful OSD failure window

    It would be super helpful if the OSD failure window can actually provide useful information - rather than just the error code of the last executed step. At least also display the name of the step where the failure occurred. I often get a screenshot of the error code and that doesn't help me at all.

    So often when I troubleshoot OSD, it is with computers in remote site. While walking someone over phone through launching command prompt, cd here, copy these files there, etc - it is such a tedious process.

    I would love to see a way toā€¦

  12. Fix offline servicing so it doesn't show unapplicable updates

    Whenever I use offline servicing to inject updates into a .wim, it always shows updates that I have previously tried to inject that have not been applicable.

    It would be much better if it would properly scan and record what updates were previously unapplicable and not show you them anymore.

  13. Allow Mandatory Task Sequence Warning message timeout configuration

    The "Mandatory Task Sequence Warning" message is hardcoded to 2 or 3 minutes. It is possible for most applications of this to be a good idea. In the case of rapid deployment such as I am establishing for large numbers, it is way too long. The ability to modify this timeout would significantly improve the process.

  14. Include DART in ConfigMgr Boot Images as standard

    Having DART included in the boot images for ConfigMgr would make remove monitoring of OS Deployments much easier without us having to manually integrate it into the boot images.

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestion.
    Updating status to noted – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    We understand the ask and that it would reduce work for boot image maintenance. Unfortunately our team does not own DART (Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset) therefore we cannot include it as part of the boot images.

    We’ll keep this item open for the suggestion to make adding the tools an option on the boot image customization tab.

  15. Add automatic Peer Cache prefill task sequence synchronization

    Behavior today: You have a OSD task sequence deployed for your "normal" client installations (from DPs) and also a dedicated prefill task sequence for pushing needed OSD content on the Peer Cache source machines.
    Now whenever you do changes in the "normal" TS you also have to change content and/or steps in the prefill TS manually. If you forget it, clients may download content remotely or OSD fails.
    I would like to propose an automatism, e.g. right-click on the "normal" TS, with a command to synchronize all changes with the selected prefill TS.

  16. Task sequences have folders that mirror the structure in the console when booting from PXE

    It would be nice for the task sequences to be listed in folders within the PXE environment when you have a lot of task sequences. You can put the task sequences in folders in the console but this is not mirrored across.

  18. Improve Collapsible Task Sequence Groups

    The Task Sequence Editor should not expand collapsed groups when any changes are made. Once a group is collapsed it should remain collapsed until I expand it. It should also remember what groups were collapsed between editing sessions.

    Essentially make it work like the editor in MDT does. The editor in MDT already does this.

  19. Fix Pre-Download when using "Run another program first"

    If you deploy a Task sequence that has Run another program first checked in properties and you also check pre-download content, the only thing downloaded is the program you want to run first. The program I am trying to run first is a deferral screen for OSD upgrade with user interaction. Either the pre-download should download everything in the task sequence or give you options of what you want to download. When doing OS upgrades with remote users you need everything in place before you can run the task sequence incase they drop vpn.

    Thanks,

  20. Add Application revision validation to task sequence

    Currently when viewing applications in a task sequence the revision number is not displayed or validated.

    If an Application revision is deleted the task sequence will keep trying to deploy the deleted version until it is removed and added with the latest revision.

    Having it displayed in a column or validated when opening the task sequence would help reduce time spent troubleshooting this problem.
