  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Administration service URL Task Sequence variable

    With the new great possibilites using the Administration Service it would be great to have a Built In task sequence variable with the URL to the SMS Provider(s) so we can easily call that in our OSD Powershell scripts during OSD

  7. 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€¦

  8. 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.

  10. 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..."

  11. 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.

  12. Tasks sequence - 'Install applications' task with multiple apps should not report 'Succeeded' state message between apps

    A device on which a tasks sequence is running should report as "Running" as long as the tasks sequence has not reached its end, and report accordingly under the deployment summary tab and SSRS reports.

    Consider this scenario:
    1. Create a tasks sequence
    2. Add an 'Install Application' task, and chain a couple of applications in this task.
    3. Add another different task following it -- i.e. a 'Restart computer' task.
    4. Deploy this tasks sequence on a device.
    5. In the ConfigMgr console, go to Monitoring > Deployment, and display the TS deployment
    6. Frequently refresh this deployment summaryā€¦

  13. 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€¦

  14. 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€¦

  15. Make Progress Status messages descriptive

    The Create Task Sequence Media Wizard reports very basic information during the creation, eg. Processsing 0% or 14 % etc but what is it progressing? As you cannot see this information and the processing status resets to 0% multiple times.

    Would be helpful to know what it is doing!

  16. Have the console alert when the task sequence size is reached

    The task sequence has a 32MB size limit for all policy. But for some reason they are actually limited to 16MB. But the Product Group is aware of the problem. I know they are working on fixing the 16MB limit.

    This will help us troubleshoot and determine when the task sequence has reached this size.

  17. Background content prestaging

    What if during TS steps, content prestaged in the background while existing TS steps were running? There could be a "watcher" behind the scenes that the TS step checks in with to see if a download has completed, making the content available.

    We can currently use prestaging to download content beforehand but that still takes the same amount of time to download the content from the DP as if it did that while running the step.

  18. Task Sequence(Windows 10 1903) progress hidden with screen stuck on screen ā€œJust a momentā€¦ā€

    While Running Task Sequence to deploye custom image for Windows 10 version 1903, task Sequence doesn't show any progress bar in Full OS Mode.

    Task Sequence progress bar works fine until WinPE Phase which includes image applying and download of "Setup Windows and configmgr". Right after the reboot when we are expecting to start Full OS phase starting with SCCM Client installation, there is blue screen shown with message "Just a moment..." till the time all the all the steps of task sequence completes successfully.

    This doesn't bring a good customer experience.

  19. bandwidth throttling for OSD

    The "Rate Limits" tab on a DP works for transfers from the Primary to a DP. Can we make Rate Limits work while re-imaging computers on the local subnet? We have had users complain that the network is slow while doing OSD. Intelligent bandwidth throttling on the local subnet that a DP manages could help stop this.

  20. 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.
