  1. Create a more rich driver experience

    The console lacks some serious depth. If using the Auto Apply driver step, it would be nice to have a way to filter more. Showing all checked driver packages for example. Another welcomed change would be to have more filtering for the window below instead of only allowing you to type simple text that will clear out any checks for current driver packs.

    In addition there should be a way to update driver packages that exist already to decrease the clutter from different driver packages. Manufacturers release updated packages and it would be nice to upload the new packages andā€¦

  2. download wim directly from SCCM console

    Allow to download windows wim file from SCCM console. Windows 10 is available from online publicly using media creator tool. So adding this option will make it easier to download in one place

  3. Task Sequence - Restart Computer to ANY boot image

    When you choose Restart Computer in a Task Sequence you can only choose the assigned boot image or the installed OS. This requires we have duplicate Task Sequences for 32-bit vs 64-bit for UEFI, or we have to create child-Task Sequence relationships when really we should just be able to pick a boot image like any other package!

    Options should be:
    - Installed OS
    - Assigned Boot Image
    - Select a Boot Image

  4. Intuitive User State Migration and the ability to capture and restore automatically.

    It would be great to have the ability to customize the USMT without being burdened with XML configuration. Although this could remain as an option being able to restrict themes from migrated and restrict pulling over the registry would be great. Sometimes with the registry you can often pull problems over with the migration.

  5. Wrong OS version when capturing Windows 10 LTSB 1607 (with current patch)

    We detected a little bug in the capture process:

    When capturing a Windows 10 LTSB 1607 system and creating an OS image with the captured WIM in the ConfigMgr console, a wrong OS Version is reported. The installed OS shows e.g. 14393.2430 (August) or 14393.2485 (September) as OS version, but the captured WIM in both cases 14393.2214. I assume the capture process calculates a "wrong" OS version, producing at least a misleading result. We recognized this with the OS version mentioned above, but this might be a general problem.

    It would be interesting to know if this is indeed aā€¦

  6. Nested task sequence different user targets

    Presently nested task sequences only run under a single context. There are some workloads that it would be helpful if a child task sequence could run under a different context. For example, the system account of the computer may not have sufficient rights to add an object to an AD group, but capturing administrative credentials and passing to a child task sequence would facilitate this function.

  7. Telemetry or Management Insights which USMT store roaming client is going to use

    I would like to se some telemetry / insights where client is going to push its USMT data before deployment starts. Need to know if disk space is sufficient on USMT stores.

    As clients roam the network, I cannot predict where yesterday's clients are going to push their USMT data today when deployment starts.

  8. Software udpates for workgroup machines doesn't work during build and capture.

    Software updates for workgroup machines doesn't work during build and capture. Panu says it works if you domain join; and then patch; and then leave the domain... but doesn't work if you are workgroup machine one.

  11. 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.

  12. Add the Option to rerun a deployed Task Sequence on specific Clients in a Device-Collection

    Add the Option to rerun the deployed Task Sequence of a Device-Collection. Also it would be good to have the Option to rerun a deployed Task at the Monitoring-Tab in the failed-Tab.

  13. Task Sequence Import - Mass Overwrite / Ignore

    When importing a TS, and you have multiple dependencies to import with it, would be nice to have a check box to overwrite all, instead of clicking on each one to overwrite, or ignore.

  14. Driver pack life cycle management

    Driver pack life cycle management, This would make managing driver packs easier and create an easier mechanism for reporting to management that driver packs are up to date easily


    • Add fields to track last date verified to facilitate weather there is a new replacement

    • Supported OS releases as defined by vendor release docs, to assist in troubleshooting in the rare instance a driver does not work with a future release

    • Add Life cycle field for ie New/Testing/in use/soon to be replaced and retired

  15. Windows 10 Customizations - TS & Workspace

    Organizations prefer implementing a standard start menu and taskbar layout across all end user devices. There are powershell scripts available to achieve this during build sequence. However, it will be nice to have a built in feature\step in the TS to perform this. Also, with Windows 10 upgrades\servicing, I have seen issues with these layouts being reset to defaults. It may be worth adding a Windows 10 workspace of its own in the ConfigMgr console for creating customization policies and deploying them in conjunction with Compliance settings.

  16. SMSTSPostReboot / SMSTSOnStart command

    When a specific app or utility needs to be run (ex. a custom monitoring application) after each restart, it would be handy if we could put the command in a variable. The command should then be executed after each restart, before the TS continues.

  17. Task Sequence Media - backup to media rather than network.

    In these days of huge USB drives, it would be really beneficial to be able to boot from USB media, then capture the .wim to that same media, rather than to a network location (which we don't have on many machines). Thank heaps.

  18. Create Policy body cache in remote Management points for partial policy body requests.

    On cases where a remote Management point uses a WAN link to communicate with Site Database server and clients leverage partial content download or range downloads for policy body download, it would be useful to have one fo two options:
    1. IF the client is forced to use range downloads for policy, the MP should cache the policy body received from the Database and fulfill the client request using the cached results vs. querying the policy from DB for each ranged request.
    2. IF #1 is not possible, then there should be a mechanism to disable the ranged requests forā€¦

  20. Task Sequence (Windows 10 1903) fails to install application with error "NotifyProgress received: 16 (Application failed to evaluate )"

    Existing task sequence which was previously used to deploy Windows 10 version 1809,1803 & 1709, is not failing with version 1903.

    Task Sequence fails while trying to install applications, none of the application gets installed. We are getting error "NotifyProgress received: 16 (Application failed to evaluate )".

    If I change the install.wim from 1903 to 1809 or any previous version, it works absolutely fine.

    Seems like bug with version 1903 only.
