  1. 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.

  2. Add URL Markup for Localized Description Text in an Application

    Please allow URL links within the text field for localized description. This way you can include a link to contact the helpdesk or a URL for internal documentation. Particularly, the "mailto" and "href" markup.

  3. Option to delete install cache of Application after successful install

    SCCM Task Sequences and Application Groups have option to delete install cache after install. Can we have the same for Single Applications, rather than having to create Task\Application sequences? Sometimes I just need to deploy a single app to a collection and want the install cache to be removed after a successful install, and not have it take up valuable disk space as some Apps we deploy are 20GB+ in size.

  4. Test deployment

    It could be great to get a feature that lets us make test deployments.
    E.g. so we can test supersedence without stopping the old deployment.

    Today if I want to test a deployment of an application that should supersede another, I have to actually supersede the old application to test the process of detection, uninstall, install, detection.

    I have an update for an application that has to be installed on several classroom computers and tested towards an updated test server.
    With the test several weeks ahead of deployment, the old version should continue to install for anyone in need of…

  5. MS Edge Extension Management

    It would be great if Microsoft allowed for the management of Edge extensions in the SCCM console. It would be great to (1) collect information about the extensions in use, (2) designate certain extensions as allowed, (3) block known extensions.

    This is already possible in Chrome by using Google's cloud management solution and we'd really like to be able to more granularly manage Edge without another management silo.

  6. Additional columns when showing deployment types

    Additional columns within the application Deployment Type tab. I'd like to be able to add/remove columns for fields such as:
    -Content Location
    -Installation Program
    -Uninstall Program
    -Product Code
    -Detection Method
    -User Experience (Behavior, logon requirement, Max Run Time)
    -Requirements
    -Dependencies (Expanded, view array of all dependencies or dependency names would be nice)

  7. Office 365 Application creation configures uninstall string with xml and supplies icon

    Currently when building an Office C2R application within Configuration Manager you get the ability to configure all of your installation settings. But when the application is built it doesn't come with an uninstall string and thus no uninstall.xml file. Additionally, It would be great to have the process populate an icon for the application within Software Center.

  8. Deployment prerequisites e.g. check for pending reboot

    I would like to see options to have the ConfigMgr client check for prerequisite.
    E.g. pending reboot.
    I am about to deploy Office 2019, at the silent setup fails if there is a pending reboot.
    If the client could check for pending reboots before running a deployed installation, it would result in fewer failures.
    If a prerequisite is not met, the client should move on to other deployments and return to the first, rechecking the prerequisites.
    If the prerequisite is "no pending reboots", the client should wait till a reboot has been made.

    Other prerequisites could be battery level, connection…

  9. Make Application Deployment Status more consistent

    Since 2012 RTM, ConfigMgr has inconsistent experience for application deployment monitoring described in these blog entries:

    @Michael Wray: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Configuration-Manager-Archive/Troubleshooting-In-Console-Monitoring-for-Deployments-in-System/ba-p/273015
    @Umair Khan: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/umairkhan/2014/10/02/the-case-of-the-unexplained-application-deployment-monitoring-reports-which-one-to-rely/

    Basically, we count Application Infrastructure errors in all pie charts both in Monitoring\Deployments Console node and application reports, but we don't have any pre-created way to find failing clients except "Application infrastructure Errors" report.

    It would be good idea to list the assets affected by infra errors in separate deployment monitoring tab, or together with failing DTs in the console. Also it would be nice to modify pre-defined reports to be more consistent and list also affected assets…

  10. Packages that are larger than the Cache size should have a feature to increase the cache size as part of the package and automatically reduc

    Application Packages that are larger than the Cache size on the computer should have a feature to increase the cache size as part of the package and automatically reduce the size when the package is installed. E.X. Cache size of the computer is 10240MB, Adobe Creative Cloud is 18000MB packaged in SCCM. SCCM should have an option or the ability to tell the computer cache to increase for this application so that it can install when pushed, then once it is installed reduce it back to the 10240MB size.

  11. Improve Operating System Requirement Choices for Application Model

    the provided Application Model Operation System Conditions for Windows 10 versions are limited in scope. Currently the Operator options for Windows 10 are two choices.

    Windows 10 (Select This to get the two below)
    All Windows 10 64bit ( or select one of these)
    All Windows 10 32bit

    As I am operating in an environment that now has multiple Windows 10 builds (IE 1709, 1809, 1903 etc) These each should be provided as evaluation conditions because I may have specific software that I am updated that is necessary on specific builds of Windows 10.

    Windows Server should also be updated…

  12. Improve email application approvals

    Improve email application approvals to show the email address that get's the approval email after the deployment has been created. You can't see it in the deployment via GUI or via powershell. Also, please add the option to set the email via powershell (New-CMApplicationDeployment). We want to use this feature, but not having a way to automate it or report on our current deployments makes it sort of a non-starter as we are currently automating deployments.

  13. Deployment settings -- Required -- Deploy software ONLY to the user's primary device

    DEployment Settings -- Purpose: required -- [checkbox] Deploy software ONLY to the user's primary device.

    Please Please, we are managing software deployment on user centric approach, it is a nightmare to build a whole substructure of device collections to make the real deployment and then query for primary devices of this user collection. I t will help a lot on collection evaluation too and I bet it will improve the overall performance of sccm server. Of course it's always posible to make a new deployment as available to another collection of users if needed, or even included the mandatory collection…

  14. Detection by script should evaluate by True/False

    Currently script detection only returns detected if something is written to STDOUT, nothing is written to STDERR and the exit code is 0. The STRERR stream and exit code requirements aren't necessarily an issue, but requiring something in STDOUT seems strange. Returning True/False is more intuitive, and would be more consistent with the built-in detection methods.

  15. Detection using scripts shouldn't be mutually exclusive with other options

    Currently you can use the canned detection methods (file present, MSI package code present, etc) OR a script, but not both. It would be useful to have the option of using both together, so that if you need to evaluate based on file content (such as in a config file) you don't have to manually script standard application detection.

  16. Make version check more flexible in the detection method for Microsoft Store Apps

    When deploying an offline Microsoft Store Apps through SCCM, add an option to consider a version greater or equal to the one in the package to be installed in the detection method.

    This will make SCCM play nicely with the auto-update of modern apps.

  17. Allow for creation of a deployment with type "required" for primary devices, but "available" for non primary devices

    When deploying applications, it would be great to have the option to deploy the application as required to the users primary device, but within the same deployment also allow it to be available when the user logs on to a non-primary device. this will eliminate the option to create separate collections for this, as it is not possible to deploy the same application to a collection twice.

  18. ‘Run Command Line Option’ ‘PowerShell Script’ within Application Package

    Just like a task sequence. Let’s see Run, Command Line, and Run, PowerShell Option for application deployments. This will elevate the need to create custom scripted deployments for simple file drop, amongst other use case scenarios

  19. Copy Application detection rules

    It would be "nice to have" and a timesaver to be able to copy application detection rules from other applications. I should be placed next to "Add Clause", "Edit Clause" and "Delete Clause" in "Detection Method" tab.
    And also possible to copy Detection Method scripts from other applications.

  20. uninstall deadline not honoured (App-V 4.6 application in this case)

    Bug I think: I deployed the uninstall action for an App-V 4.6 application through SCCM, with a deadline in the year 2099 (to allow leeway for monitoring before and after in my testing), but it ran as soon as it hit.

    Deployed to user, install outside maintenance windows (so I would see it in Software Center without having to wait till after work).

    Inconvenient, not a show-stopper.
