  1. 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.

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. ‘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

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Add Schedule "Update Content" for Application Model

    Schedule update Content for Application Model, similar to Package feature. The update process would compare existing content hash values for all Deployment Types to the files in the Content location to determine which files changed. Perhaps enable Differential update vs. Full replace all. Put button for Schedule Update Content on the Content Location Tab or add new Tab.
    Additionally, Powershell cmdlet to Invoke-App-UpdateContent with similar Parameter options

  17. Retry un-installation of Pre-approved applications

    Provide an WMI method to trigger un-installation of pre-approved apps remotely just like the 'RetryInstall' method released in 1905.

  18. Allow pre-download content for packages/applications being deployed

    Allow pre-download content for packages/applications being deployed, this would be useful for large deployments that are also scheduled to run at a later time

  20. 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)
