  1. Native patching in OSD

    Provide the ability to deploy updates directly from a selected list of Update Groups instead of having to have an active software update deployment?

  2. Fix "Remove CD" issue.

    would be nice to just remove that one extra step before the task sequence starts

  3. Show different icon for Task Sequence steps with active condition or continue on error in TS Editor

    The Task Sequence editor shows a green icon for every active step and a grey icon for every disabled step. It world be great if you could see on the icon if an active step has an execution condition (maybe a blue icon) or is set to continue on error.

    At the moment you have to click on every step and switch to the options tab to get this information.

    Refreshing the status

    We released our 1907 Technical Preview today, that adds search functionality to the task sequence editor. Part of that allows filtering by ‘Continue on Error’ and can search Conditions too.

    See:
    Doc: https://docs.microsoft.com/sccm/core/get-started/2019/technical-preview-1907
    Blog: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Configuration-Manager-Blog/Search-in-the-Task-Sequence-Editor-in-ConfigMgr-Technical/ba-p/748909
    for more details.

    Searching is quicker then browsing for an icon, try it out and let us know if this meets your ask.

  4. Be able to Set autologon during TS for Kiosk PCs

    Hello,

    It would be wonderful if we could set Autologon during task sequence since we can create really nice provisinog package from ADK and use DISM during WinPe to set assigned access to a certain account and app.

    It would be awesome if we could somehow stop SCCM to remove autologon when TS is completed so we dont have to create workarounds after the TS is completed.

  5. add "not like" in the task sequence condition, variable

    Add "not like" in the task sequence condition, variable. If we have like, wouldn't it be reasonable to have not like as well? I have some scenarios that are easily resolved with a "not like" condition for a task sequence variable, but more complex with just "like"

  6. Add native error handling section to task sequences.

    Within a task sequence it would be great if we had better native error handling. Right now it's possible to get log files via powershell scripts and tricking task sequences with a step that looks for _SMSTSLastActionSucceeded = False, but this causes us to lose accurate error descriptions if we also want to setup a status filter rule.

    Instead having native error handling that would simply copy the computers last smsts.log to a share would be fantastic that way status filter rules still work.

  7. Upgrade Windows 10 OS Image in console

    Upgrade Windows 10 OS Image to latest version within the console (via Offline Servicing) instead of having to run build/capture Task Sequence to generate a new WIM.

    Thanks for the feedback

    We looked into this to see what was possible with Offline Servicing – the ‘Upgrade roll-ups’ are executables. Offline Servicing is limited to CBS (Component Based Setup) updates – same as what can be applied via DISM – based on that build/capture remains the way to go. Using OS Upgrade then Capture works well too.

  8. Task Sequence Media - Bootable but with content

    Allow adding content for a task sequence to a media that works like the Bootable media, if content is local and up2date use that otherwise pull from DP.

    And if this content would be stored on the media but outside the .wim file, it would not increase load time for WinPE and maybe even allow updates of single items instead of rebuild entire media to include small changes to content

  9. Deploy multiple task sequence to a collection at once

    Why is not possible to multi-select task sequences and deploy them at once to a (user or device) collection? Now you have to deploy them one by one. In test scenario's where you have a device collection with test machines and hundreds of task sequences you want to deploy to the collection, you have to do it manually one by one. Not really efficient.

  10. 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.

  11. When copying collection or task sequence any password variables are empty, there should be a window to set all those variables at once

    After copying collection and task sequence, it is easily missed to configure all those passwords hidden at the collection variables and in various task sequence steps.

    There is no reminder or anything, so it would be nice if there is a popup to prompt for all those passwords.

  12. Ability to easily copy files during TS to any location on computer

    It would be nice to be able to have a built in step to be able to select a folder/file from a share and then a location on Windows to copy the files to.

  13. Provide GUI option in disk partitioning Task Sequence step to guarantee drive letter selection

    We were trying to build a Windows 10 deployment and got stuck for a little while. We used the 1511 WIM from VLSC and had the OSPreserveDriveLetter = True variable. We did NOT do a build and Capture to create the customized WIM. We used the Stocked 1511 WIM to try and lay down the Windows 10 Image.

    After lots of reading, troubleshooting, and frustrations, we were finally able to get the TS to use the C drive to lay down the OSDisk.

    It would be awesome if we could have a task sequence step that allows the OSD adminā€¦

    In 1606 we have deprecated OSDPreserveDriveLetter – instead of using the captured driver letter the change leaves Windows Setup to determine the best drive letter.

  14. Dynamic application and package deployment for prestage media

    We are trying to use prestage media to deploy images to machines on sites with little bandwidth, but still with a network connection to the corporate network.

    We have a large number of sites and our current online build uses an MDT database with Roles and Make / Model configurations for a large number of sites and hardware types.

    Within each of these, we have a number of packages and applications which are installed depending on the site / model required.

    This all works fine for an online build, however when using prestage media, even if we include the packagesā€¦

  15. Import computer information automaticlaly update All Systems

    After importing a computer it takes about 5 minutes until it appears in the desired collection. For some customers this leads to unnecessary confusion. The reason is as far as I can tell that the computer doesn't even appear in All Systems. If you execute an update membership on All Systems, the computer immediately arrives in the desired collection.
    I would like to suggest the following change: After importing a computer, All Systems should be updated immediately.

  17. Fix Task Sequence refresh after vieing content status

    In the SCCM Console (doesn't matter what version, I'm using 1511), If a task sequence is under a folder, and if you select View Content Status from the Reference tab, it will take you to there, BUT if you go back to the task sequence or click the back button, all task sequences are gone until. If you try to hit F5 or refresh, you will receive and error: "The requested object could not be retrieved..."

  18. Conditions Library for Task Sequence Editor

    We often find ourselves duplicating conditions in Task Sequences. The ability to copy/paste/move conditions in TP 1908 is excellent but I would suggest we could go one step further.

    To have a conditions library where we could select custom - predefined conditions would be excellent. We should be able to add/edit/delete our own predefined conditions.

  19. Task Sequence Monitor

    Please create a task sequence monitor app similar to the options offered by this 3rd party software (https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/ConfigMgr-Task-Sequence-fefdc532). This app should also be part of the console. This OSD monitoring process is needed for organizations that have IT technicians in different locations with the need to look at each location respective OSD process status. The external app can be useful for locations where the console is not needed, or the IT technicians do not know how to work with SCCM. I believe that SCCM can provide a more efficient method to monitor task sequences by default without theā€¦

  20. OS Task Sequence End User experience

    Hi ConfigMgr Team,

    First of all great work - we see that our feedback on your product is recognized and changes are implemented! You are an absolute role model @MS!

    It would be nice to implement a better End User Experience for upgrading Windows 10 with an Task Sequence, because upgrading in Enterprise is not the same like upgrading on the devices at home. I think about third party security software, run only if not on battery, check if device has VPN or is connected via LAN to the corporate Network...

    I saw some approaches in the new Upgrade 1802ā€¦
