  1. Make deleting applications easier when it has dependencies

    Currently, when trying to delete an application and it has dependencies like task sequences, virtual environments and settings, we have to try and track down where these dependencies are. This can be difficult if you have dozens of these, so it would be great instead of just telling us the number of dependent objects, we could see which ones they were in order to remove the dependency and delete the application.

  3. Deployment Status Totals

  4. Add support for detecting a superseding app when a superseded app is deployed

    It would be nice to have an option NOT to install application A if superseding app B is detected (but not deployed).

    Scenario:
    Let's say the B is being installed via OSD or outside of ConfigMgr. However there is still deployment of A to the collection where machine resides, and ConfigMgr will ultimately install A as well, probably breaking both apps.

  5. Tasksequence Manager can switch in currently running TS installation between MP and CMG

    When a TS Installation is running, and the mobil working User stops the VPN connection to the on prem MP, the SCCM Agent switch to the Internet Mode and connect the CMG. But the currently running Tasksequence runs now in offline mode and gets timeouts on every TS step to reach the MP. Mostly the TS run out of time.

    It would be nice when the TSManager realize when the network was switched as does the sccm agent and switch to the CMG as well.

  6. Include Field for Application Repair in the New Deployment Type Wizard

    It'd be nice if the fields to set application repair commands were configurable during the New Deployment Type wizard, saving you from having to go back in after the fact and set them (or forgetting and not setting them)

  7. Ability to Update Office 365 Application Deployment

    I've created an Office 365 installer via SCCM but would like the ability to "update" that application deployment instead of having to remake the entire installer deployment. Almost like the ability you have to install updates to your Windows image.

  8. Install application per device but without having to first deploy applications to collection

    I really like the new feature (1906) to be able to install application from 1 device. But this only works when you deployed the applications available to a collection where the device is included.

    Why not enable the option and than show all your created applications that you want to deploy?

    We sometimes would like to be able to install an application for 1 device but we don't want to have to deploy it first to a device collection. We also don't want to have the application request about it.

  10. Allow contains in OU requirement in DT

    In a DT, you can currently do a requirement around the Organizational Unit, but it is an exact list of one of or none of. This doesn't work well for a large organization that adds and removes OUs. Allow us instead to do a contains type pattern match as we have naming standards that could be worked against.

  11. Make Dependency Chains combine apps further down the chain if they are the same app

    when looking at App 1 is dependent on App 2,3,4 and 2,3,4 are dependent on 5 it shows weird...

    currently it looks like this:
    1
    |
    1
    / | \
    234
    | | |
    555

    I'd like it to show like this
    1
    |
    1
    / | \
    234
    \ | /

  13. Phased Deployments: Provide ability to create more than 2 in the wizard

    Phased Deployments: Provide ability to create more than 2 phased deployments in the wizard. Currently you can create 2 phased deployments which is great, but we have 4 separate test groups that we deploy to when testing patches, and software. It would be great to be able to create a phased deployment to each test group and then the final Enterprise systems collection within the same wizard, instead of having to create multiple phased deployments.

  14. Allow creation of an Application Deployment Type without an installation program

    Currently, when creating a Deployment Type for an Application, the "Installation program" field on the "Content" tab of the wizard is mandatory. However, there are scenarios when an installation program isn't needed. For example:

    * An Application used for the sole purpose of uninstalling an application from endpoints. In this case, only the "Uninstall program" and detection method are needed
    * An Application used for the sole purpose of detecting an existing application, to be used as a Supersedence condition when an application being deployed as Available should upgrade an application on an endpoint. In this case, only the detectionā€¦

  15. Add a column option on Applications and Packages to show # of DPs

    Might seem like a silly thing, but a column added to Applications and Packages that will show the number of DPs that have the application or package on it.
    Often times a high overview of how many DP's have the package can help determine if we need to distribute it to other DPs.

    Case in point: When we build test applications, we tend to want to deploy the application to our local DP before we deploy it to the other DP's so we can ensure things work before distributing it.
    Sometimes we need to browse through each application to seeā€¦

  16. Automatically Close

    Thank you for the Auto close of the executable specified on the install behavior, the problem I have is chrome.exe, aftre the application closes, it starts the install, if the user just starts it up again, it continues to run again, leaving 2 versions installed, chrome.exe, and new_chrome.exe, with the request to admin credentials to update, corrupting the installation

    Can we add to the Automatically close, keep closed until installation returns a Zero

  17. Modify dependent deployment types in References tab of Applications Properties Window

    When you are in the references tab of an application and you select 'Applications that depend on this application', it lists the applications and the referring deployment types. There are hyperlinks to take you to the applications and deployment types.

    I expected to be able to click on these links and be able to modify the applications/deployment type. Instead the links open the objects in read-only mode.

    I expected to be able to copy this table data to put it into excel. This functionality isn't here.

    This makes the work flow more busy for replacing say a VC++ 2017 redistributableā€¦

    The ability to replace an application in all task sequences at one time.

    (Scenario: I have many task sequences for multiple regions, and have the same application in all of them. Then an updated version of the application is released, and I'd like to update all of the task sequences with the updated version instead of doing it individually in each task sequence. I'm not ready to remove the old app from SCCM yet in case some of our techs need it. I usually keep the outdated app for 3 months before removing from SCCM.

  19. Microsoft Application Package

    **NOTE: I'm new(ish) to SCCM. So if the below request is something already offered and I'm overlooking it, please let me know.**

    Think Microsoft needs to supply an Application Package that encompasses most; if not all, Microsoft owned products for easy integration into SCCM. For example, instead of me having to download PowerBI Desktop and creating a package in SCCM to deploy it to users computers and servers. The SCCM team should already have that application available in SCCM and I can either authorize it for deployment to certain collections based off a generic package/template you all create, or Iā€¦
