  1. Option to uninstall an application when a user or device falls out of scope of the collection

    This is a buggy, Would we like the option to have ' Uninstall Application when Resource falls out of scope of this collection' when an application is deployed to a collection, this would save us having to create 2 collections ( install and uninstall) and to deployments. This would save SO much time and reduce the complicity of application management.

  2. A Customizable Reboot/Postpone Prompt for Application and Software Updates Deployments

    Basically would like something similar to the Windows Updates Reboot/Postpone nag prompt except with the ability to customize the notification text as applicable to the deployment.

    For example:, as a sub-setting of the deployment type for the application you have the option to enable the reboot/postpone prompt and customize the notification text of the dialog box.

    If the user that receives the prompt, postpones they will be re-prompted at the end of the postponement period until they either reboot or shutdown the system. (basically exactly the same behavior as the Windows Updates reboot/postpone prompt).

  3. Allow customer icons in software center for Package/Programs

    Split this item from a bigger umbrella item.
    This is to specify an icon per legacy package/program in the Software Center.

  4. Deploy Package to Multiple Collections at one time

    Allow packages to be deployed to multiple collections at one time. For instance I need AppX to go to Lab 1, Lab 2 and Lab4. Instead of going into AppX 3 different times to deploy, it would be nice to deploy it to all 3 labs at one time.

  5. Allow deployments using application model to be installed from DP rather than downloaded to ccmcache folder

    I have to create several very large (10GB and up) software deployments each year and install them for two thirds of the user base. Preferred method of delivery is install directly from the DP rather than download the installation files to C:\windows\ccmcache. It would be nice to do this using the application model so I can make use of the extended feature set it provides over the package model. I have to work around the limitations using convoluted wrapper scripts to get everything working properly.

  6. Allow uninstall of applications with dependencies

    When you deploy an application with dependencies, you loose the option to uninstall it from software center. It would be nice to be able to uninstall the main app and be able to choose if the dependencies would uninstall or not.

  7. add possibility to logoff user for Software Installation and prevent login during installation.

    It would be great to have a possibility to create a deployment where the User would be logged off during the installation of Software. Useful for Software like Java Runtime or Adobe Pro where a running application can prevent the installation.
    The User should be informed that an installation will be started and he will be logged off. The User should be not able to login during the installation.

  8. Enhance Install Behavior for detecting open applications

    SCCM 1702 introduced the Install Behavior tab for deployment types which lets you specify executables for the application to monitor during deployment. Currently, if the deployment is "Available" or "Available but before the deadline" then the install fails and users receive a pop-up indicating which executables need to be closed prior to your application running.

    Enhancements:
    1. Modify the feature so that the pop-up appears before the application install fails. If the user clicks "OK" then the application will perform the check again. If the executables are still open then the pop-up appears again. The pop-up will continue to appear…

  9. Allow admins to change the default in Software Deployment from “UTC” to “Client Local"

    It would be extremely helpful if administrators could change the default “Time based on:” option used in Software Deployment from “UTC” to “Client Local Time”. This setting is highly subjective and only companies that are based in multiple time zones AND want software to deploy simultaneously across all time zones want UTC as the default. Forcing the UTC default upon all customers needlessly increases the chance of human error. Allowing administrators to change the default would satisfy all customer’s needs rather than just those that leverage UTC.

  10. SCCM client ScriptExecutionTimeout

    Please make the SCCM client's ScriptExecutionTimeout attribute a parameter that can be configured within Client Settings policy. This would be the best way to help address the "In-line script execution time-out... DiscoverApp failed (0x87d00321)

  11. Allow Changing In-use Global Conditions

    Currently, a Global Condition cannot be changed or deleted if it is in use in any existing revision of an application. This makes testing a new global condition or fixing an existing global condition extremely cumbersome, either resulting in many duplicates being created or many revisions of the application being deleted every time the global condition must be changed.

    While it is beneficial to make it difficult to break an existing application by preventing the global condition from changing, ultimately, SCCM users need the freedom to determine when it is appropriate to change an existing Global Condition on their own.

  12. Option to use SYSTEM context for detection method for a user-based application deployment

    The application detection method only runs in the user context if it is deployed to a user collection. This would be reasonable if the Deployment Type user experience were set to "Install for User" (User context), however the detection method runs in the user context when this is set to "Install for system" installation behavior (SYSTEM context).

  13. Enhance Phased Deployment for Applications

    TL;DR: Make Phased Deployments for Applications the same as Phased Deployments for Task Sequences where you can create up to 10 phases and manually initiate the second phase of deployment.

    Explanation:
    Currently in 1806 although you can create a phased deployment for an Application, you're limited in two key areas:

    1) You cannot manually create phases for an application
    2) You cannot manually begin the second phase of deployment for an application
    3) You are limited to 2 phases for an application

    In our environment we follow a controlled graceful deployment process where an Application Model application is deployed office-by-office…

  14. Pre distribute content to clients before deadline.

    I work in a quite big Environment, 30k clients and my network team isn’t that happy when we pull the trigger to update our critical LOB apps due to the fact that every computer downloads the content almost at the same time. That puts a lot of pressure on the network infrastructure.
    There for it would be great to be able to preload the clients with content for applications in a slow and steady way before the deadline falls for the application.

  15. Virtual environment management

    We cannot have AppV connection groups be successfully managed by current branch SCCM Virtual Environments.
    It looks like:
    - an application cannot be part of more than one virtual environment
    AND
    - an application cannot have more than one deployment type in a virtual environment

    According to what can be found in the documentation, it should be possible to achieve what we want.
    - Old whitepaper (not anymore officially available, but we still have it): http://www.getonict.nl/docs/app-v-5-configuration-manager-2012-sp1-integration.pdf “Applications are allowed to be in multiple virtual environments to allow a single package to communicate with multiple, separate applications.”
    - SCCM Current Branch…

  16. Provide the ability to set an "expiration date" on a DEPLOYMENT

    Even thought Applications are state based there are still use cases when a deployment could be expired so that no future deployments of that application will occur. Either an expiration or the use of automatically disabling the deployment, since Software Updates could be disabled so should Software Application Deployments. The reason to keep the deployment would be for reporting so a way to disable or expire would be ideal if state based is not needed.

    The sms_applicationassignment WMI class exposes an ExpirationTime property which actually removes deployments from App Catalog but it does not work with software center.

  17. Add an additional Maintenance Windows type specifically for Application Deployments only

    Add an additional Maintenance Window type specifically for Application Deployments only. Software Updates and Task sequences have their own and there is an "All Deployments" type. There needs to be one on for Apps to better segregate the nature of the changes occurring in the environment.

  18. Fix 'CI Version Info Timed Out' error

    My applications are successfully installing on client devices however the Console is showing an error for the deployment in the monitoring section. The only description of the error is 'CI Version Info Timed Out'. I have tried all the workarounds found online.
    - Deleting and recreating a package to reset the revision number
    - Deleting deployment and recreating deployment
    - Updating collection and redistributing content

    Nothing works permanently the errors come right back

  19. Ability to Rename Programs within Packages

    In Software Library > Packages...

    When you create a new package or import an MSI there are predetermined "Programs" that are labeled "Per-system unattended" or "Per-user unattended" it would be great to have the ability to rename these existing programs. The only option currently is to delete the program and recreate it.

  20. Windows Application Packager (WinGet) Integration

    I would like configmgr to integrate with winget.

    https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/windows-package-manager-preview/

    Please allow me to simply tell winget to install/uninstall an application and allow sccm to monitor the result codes. Provide winget as a part of the sccm client install. Reduce my work effort to deploy applications!

    This should be a native deployment type as well. Let sccm ingest all the possible applications winget supports!

    Allow application content to be stored via Microsoft Connected Cache!
