  1. RBA During Unknow OSD

    With unknown computer deployments, there should be an authentication step that allows the deployment technician to authenticate to SCCM so he\she will only see the deployed task sequences to the unknown computer collection that are ONLY scoped to them instead of seeing all task sequences deployed to the unknown computer collection.

  2. Install Third Party Software Updates during TS Install Software Updates step

    Currently (v1806 or later) Third Party Software Updates are not being installed during the Install Software Updates step in a Task Sequence.

    Ideally third party software updates should be installed just like regular updates during the Task Sequence. A machine should be fully patched (secure and end-user ready) when it leaves the deployment bench.

  3. 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?

  4. Keyboard support for Edit Task Sequence Variables

    Keyboard support to select task sequence variables in the Task Sequence Wizard to edit them. Instead of having to use the mouse to click them and change values. This is helpful when imaging a large batch of computers and using a KVM.

  5. OSD - Have different command-line options in the "Upgrade Operating System Task Sequence" to upgrade Windows 10

    Make the Upgrade Step more customizable. I'd actually like the ability to remove the /quiet tag from the setup.exe command line, and be able to add the additional commands right on that step instead of having to add additional steps to create the those variables.
    Add Check boxes for additional preset parameters to enable /disable, and text box to add custom (reflect drivers, etc)

  7. PXE Boot menu with selection of additional images (e.g. MDOP DaRT)

    There is a buisiness need to be able to select a different bootimage as the one linked to a task sequence. This can be used for administrative tasks of a client such as booting MDOP DaRT over the network. Implement the ability to define which bootimages can be selected at a TFTP boot. (Of cause, OSD is only possible with the image linked to the task sequence)

  8. Enable New-CMBootableMedia to use a Cloud DP (or Content enabled CMG)

    This Cmdlet does not support using a cloud distribution point as the distribution point source (and neither does the GUI).

    This means that in order to use this feature we have to have an on-premise DP purely for this purpose.

    Regards
    Wayne

  9. Task Sequence Specific Password

    Please allow Task Sequence specific passwords. Currently the only built in option to password protect a task sequence is to password protect a PXE point.

  10. For the option to "Run only on the specified client platform," include the option to specify specific Windows 10 branches.

    Include the ability to select specific Windows 10 branches for the option "Run only on the specified client platform." I have scenarios where I would like to limit certain task sequences and/or packages to e.g. current branch 1607 but not 1703.

  11. Add ability to not include Autorun.inf when building SCCM OSD boot media.

    Our Antivirus/malware tools blocks autorun.inf in our environment as well as it is a huge attack vector

  12. Add the ability to compare two task sequences

    Compare the contents of two task sequences and report on the differences. Ignore minor items unique to each Task Sequence like dates and ID codes .

  13. Deploy primary user applications during OSD Task Sequence

    Please provide a step that would allow applications targeted at the primary users of a machine to install as part of the task sequence.

  14. Check referenced packages of child task sequence on Run Task Sequence step

    The addition of run task sequence step is great. I see many useful ways of using this feature. However i would like to have the possibility to control if the parent task sequence checks the referenced packages in the child task sequence.

    I would like to see a tick box on the Run Task Sequence step called something similar:
    Check refences packages in child task sequnce.

    It could be ticked as default.

    Here is an example how this could be used:
    My idea is to have country specific applications and roles that currently exist in MDT in separate task sequences…

  15. Handle PowerShell Execution Policy during OSD

    During OSD and utilizing built-in "Install Applications" action. If the application has a detection method that utilizes a PowerShell script, the installation will fail.

    Having a variable to set this globally or having the default behavior with the TS environment change the execution policy would allow that scenario to work with out issue. In addition, it will allow the execution of posh scripts with having to specify the execution policy at each iteration of running powershell.exe.

  16. Deliver the Microsoft Surface drivers pack updates thru the servicing channel

    Deliver the Microsoft Surface group devices drivers pack updates thru the servicing connection point and make an easy way to click the driver and create a driver pack automatically. Maybe detect where the old driver pack is stored in the task sequence and replace it with versioning ( Kind of superseedence )

  17. Provide a framework for vendors to provide driver packages directly into SCCM

    It would be nice to have a driver package catalogue, which is populated with packages built by vendors for their hardware. Vendors are best placed to release drivers for their hardware so why not leverage this knowledge and integrate it fully in SCCM?

  18. Improve High-Risk Deployment Prompt when Deploying a Task Sequence via a Collection

    When deploying a task sequence via a collection, the collection in the wizard is removed when selecting a high-risk collection.
    1. Find collection;
    2. Right-click > Deploy > Task Sequence.

    When a high-risk task sequence is selected ConfigMgr blanks out the collection. Requiring them to select it again so that the prompt about high-risk is displayed.

    This is a problem for 2 reasons:
    1. This process is sometimes followed to MINIMISE risk of choosing the incorrect collection as they can see the numbers and members etc before deploying;
    2. Finding the collection via the dialog box in a large collection…

  19. Changelog Task Sequence

    It would be nice to have a changelog tab (administrative notes) in the properties of a task sequence.

    In this tab everyone can log the settings of the changes he/she made in a task sequence.

    Option to Automatically update Offline Windows Image on schedule.

    So that My Custom Windows 7 with preinstalled software will alway have all windows updates already in the image when its deployed.

    An option in SCCM to pick few images that SCCM would automatically update on set time. Eg after patch tuesday. s

    We took a look at this – one potential drawback is the there’s no user interaction meaning the updates applied would be what’s presented in the Offline Servicing view. That’s the default view – filtered for that architecture.

    Would that selection be acceptable?
