  1. Support localization for custom user notification for high impact task sequences.

    Allow language localization on task sequence User Notifications like we have for applications. currently if you change the default task sequence user notifications, they only show in the language they were entered in, not the users localized language. Same for making the task sequence name, in localized language

  2. SMSTS Log - Variable to not log certificate checks

    The SMSTS Log is busy, and much of it in our HTTPS only environment is filled with Certificate checks. I'd like to turn that off.
    Perhaps have it off by default, unless debug logging is enabled? or set a variable "SMSTS_NoCertCheck" and it won't log that stuff.

    My log rolls over before an entire TS is done!

  3. Interactive step during OSD (or any other TS)

    To be able to add an interactive step when running a TS would be useful in many cases. You might not always want to run an OSD as User Driven, but still in one step you want user input.
    Not only for production, but for test purposes this would be really good.

    Today, I'm running a very customized solution to make this happen.
    I created this one in order for this to happen, it should be easier.

  4. Include DART in ConfigMgr Boot Images as standard

    Having DART included in the boot images for ConfigMgr would make remove monitoring of OS Deployments much easier without us having to manually integrate it into the boot images.

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestion.
    Updating status to noted – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    We understand the ask and that it would reduce work for boot image maintenance. Unfortunately our team does not own DART (Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset) therefore we cannot include it as part of the boot images.

    We’ll keep this item open for the suggestion to make adding the tools an option on the boot image customization tab.

  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. Allow 32-bit applications to run within WinPE x64. All new Windows 10 computers ship with UEFI but to flash BIOS

    Allow 32-bit applications to run within WinPE x64. All new Windows 10 computers ship with UEFI. We need to flash the system BIOS to the latest version before applying the OS but all the hardware vendors (Dell, Lenovo, etc.) only provide 32-bit BIOS upgrade programs. The 32-bit limitation also causes problems when upgrading a machine from TPM 1.2 to 2.0.

    Surely WinPE 10 x64 or later will provide 32-bit application support.

  7. Task Sequence - Non Terminating Error Prompt w/continue button

    Some steps in my OSD are not as important as others like installing an app or two that could fail and will retry again when the client has launched post OSD. For these I use the continue on error option in the task sequence step. There are of course other uses for this.

    My idea is to change continue on error to continue silently on error and add new option; continue as non-terminating error (or some other descriptive name).

    The continue silently on error would do as the name suggests and continue silently on error (what the continue on errorā€¦

  8. Fix Pre-Download when using "Run another program first"

    If you deploy a Task sequence that has Run another program first checked in properties and you also check pre-download content, the only thing downloaded is the program you want to run first. The program I am trying to run first is a deferral screen for OSD upgrade with user interaction. Either the pre-download should download everything in the task sequence or give you options of what you want to download. When doing OS upgrades with remote users you need everything in place before you can run the task sequence incase they drop vpn.

    Thanks,

  9. Built-in step in a task sequence to Auto login as a domain or workstation user

    We have the need to customize the desktop, deploy some user specific apps, as well as setup and configure Outlook and OneDrive. It would be nice to have the ability to have the system automatically log in as the user, provided we have their credentials, so that custom scripts can continue after the task sequence finishes. This is especially true for new hires as we do have their passwords and we make them change it once we turn over the system to them.

  10. ConfigMgr console shows incorrect image version (OS Version) at Operating System Images

    On previous Windows 10 builds updates installed on RTM fresh machine was tend to change ServicePackMajor field, in contrast on later releases like RS4 installed updates incrementing ServicePackMinor

    Both Windows 10RS4 RTM(ServicePackMinor=0) and Windows 10RS4 with installed updates (ServicePackMinor=320) will still have 10.0.17134.1 representation if it is constructed using
    MajorVersion. MinorVersion. BuildNumber. ServicePackMajor pattern
    Is it possible that latest SCCM builds will display the ServicePackMinor number too at the image properties?

  11. 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.

  12. Bitlocker Network Unlock with WDS-less PXE

    With Bitlocker Network Unlock, a WDS server can automatically unlock your bitlockered device without requiring the user typing the PIN at boot. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/information-protection/bitlocker/bitlocker-how-to-enable-network-unlock).
    As we all go forward using the SCCM WDS-less PXE-provider instead of WDS, it would be a good idea, if it supported Bitlocker Network Unlock, too.

  13. Add Windows 10 In-Place Upgrade Task Sequence Reminders with an Enforced Installation Deadline

    It would be great if we had the option to set a required Windows 10 in place upgrade Task Sequence with scheduled notifications for users with an installation deadline. This would allow In-Place upgrade deployments to be enforced ensuring timely Windows 10 version updates whilst allowing the end user enough time to schedule the upgrade.

  14. Add Application revision validation to task sequence

    Currently when viewing applications in a task sequence the revision number is not displayed or validated.

    If an Application revision is deleted the task sequence will keep trying to deploy the deleted version until it is removed and added with the latest revision.

    Having it displayed in a column or validated when opening the task sequence would help reduce time spent troubleshooting this problem.

  15. Run remediation items in task sequence

    The new step which lets you run powershell scripts in a task sequence have an open and a browse button. It would be awsome if a button was added which lets us select a configuration items remediation item (script or registry or w/e).

    This way we can set up the machine the same say we do after it has its client configured but we dont need to add startup scripts or services to fix this before first logon.

  16. Allow to select WinPE language pack when you generate Boot Image

    It would be great to customize WinPE language pack when Generating standard or MDT Boot Image, like select box that will list lp.cab that are present in ADK installation folder "Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment\amd64\WinPE_OCs"

  17. Integrate Task Sequence Versioning with GIT

    For large enterprises such as the one I work in govt Education, it would be very beneficial for integrating version control via GIT. Every time you check in a new version is saved to GIT.

    Then you can review changes (could be xml or some other format) in GIT, and potentially revert to an older version if the changes are not approved.

    Thank you for your feedback.
    Updating status to planned, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    Our 2006 release is now in the opt-in phase (fast ring)

    Docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/mem/configmgr/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-2006
    Support Information: https://aka.ms/cmcssreleaseinfo

    This releases adds the Community Hub https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/servers/manage/community-hub which addresses some of the User Voice asks you have added for task sequence version control, auditing, revision history etc.
    The Hub is nascent and we will continue to iterate, improving and adding new features.
    As part of this process we would appreciate your comments and feedback on the Hub.

  18. Store output of run command line to TSEnv with "RunAsUser".

    Running a step as a user prevents you from using the TSEnvironment in order to store any data returned.

    The step could be anything, like getting a byte array of a certificate, ad-groups of the computer or primary user or as in this example, getting the TPM OwnerAuth from MBAM.

    I would rather store it directly in the TSEnv instead of in a temporary file and run another script to read the file just to be able to use the password, as a variable, from a ā€œRun commandlineā€-step.

    The only other workaround Iā€™ve found this far is running the stepā€¦

  19. UEFI video resolution

    Not sure if this impacts multiple vendors, but Lenovo ThinkPad have this issue. When PXE booting a UEFI enabled system, the video resolution is very low (640x480 or 800x600). This may be a vendor issue, but if there is anything Microsoft can do that would be awesome. Having the resolution so low makes using MDT and other frontends difficult to use as parts of the dialog are off the screen.
