  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. 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.

  3. Report to output the content of a TS and the descriptions for easy documention

    Most places i have worked have wanted the task sequence documented. It would be great if we had a report that would output the task sequence with all the steps and the comments fields.

  4. Bug report: task sequences previously viewed disappear after "view content status"

    when viewing "references" of a task sequence, then following "view content status" for a package with < 100% compliance, and "redistributing" that package to whichever DP(s) have errors, and then going back to "software library" and viewing the others in the "references" tab for the same TS, the entire list of TSes in the previous place disappear

  5. Toggle to show or hide disabled steps in a task sequence

    I'm working with standardised task sequences where there are a whole bunch of disabled items. It would be nice to view just the enabled steps without having to remove all the disabled steps. I was thinking along the lines of a tick box toggle to show or hide disabled steps.
    I know there are other UV requests for search within a TS, disabled steps could also be a criteria selection within that search as an alternative to my initial suggestion.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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€¦

  12. Make moving steps in the task sequence

    For the task sequence steps make it easier to arrange the steps. Constantly have issues moving a step up the the chain steps to the top level group.

  13. 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.

  15. Run existing Powershell Script without specifying package

    "Run PowerShell Script" task sequence step needs a way to specify an existing script to run without needing to specify a package. For example, I already have working powershell scripts in my sms10000 folder. I should be able to specify %_SMSTSMDataPath%\SMS10000\somescript.ps1 as the script. That way scripts written to reference $PSScriptRoot, load powershell modules, reference relative paths, etc... will behave as expected.

  16. It would be nice to see the total space needed for a task sequence before it is created

    It would be nice to see the total space required for a standalone task sequence media creation before the process starts. It doesn't help to try and create media when I don't know if it will fail due to the size of the flash drive

  17. ADK Version Numbers in filename

    My idea is for Microsoft to put the version numbers in the file name of the ADK Installers. It gets confusing with all named the same: adksetup.exe

  18. OSD Task Sequence Maintenance Window and Client Override or ignore

    Allow the ability to override maintenance windows and client settings during an initial OSD task sequence setup of a client device. This would allow the initial OSD, Drivers, applications and software updates to complete in an expected timeframe. Currently additional scripting and checks are required to accomplish "a ready to deliver device" to a client, and in most cases, additional updates are still pending after a device is delivered.

  19. Make some fail codes less cryptic when task sequences fail

    A good example is when a task sequence fails due to a duplicate UUID / Nachine Name. Have the fail message explain the failure & list the actual duplicate UUID / Machine Name displayed.

  20. Offline Servicing Module: show all applicable updates, not just the ones downladed

    Would be nice to have a way to see what updates are applicable to the images, not just crossed referenced with only downloaded updates.
