  1. Add uninstall content path to the Create Deployment Type wizard

    Currently, in the New Deployment Type wizard, you can only specify a single content source. Now that we can have separate content source folders for uninstall, we have to create our deployment types without specifying this then edit the deployment type and add the second content folder. Please add the content options from the deployment type properties to the initial wizard.

  2. "Install Software on next reboot" switch for required Deployments

    "Install Software on next reboot" switch for required Deployments

    We have machines in production which are always online and only the Users can initiate a reboot or an Software Installation. It would be cool to have an option to install all required Deployments if the Users initiate a reboot. This would raise the SW-Compliance extemely, because the Users often do not take a look in the SW-Center an click on install.

  3. Deployment Evaluation Cycle detects manually installed applications (AppDiscovery.log) but does not reflect this status in Software Center

    Think about a KeePass application including a working detection method. Click "install" in Software Center, it installs and gets detected correctly.
    Now think about a user who manually installed the same KeePass version. The application is deployed to "any machine" as "available". So, this user get's it as well. But it never shows up as installed in Software Center unless I click one time on "install". Even running the "Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle" does not change the button to "uninstall" or list it as installed in "Installation Status". AppDiscovery.log shows the DeploymentType_blabla as "discovered".

  5. Detection method comments

    Add a field for adding a note in detection methods. When you have a large list of detections it would be easier to update for changes if I knew what reason I put in for each detection.

  6. Configmgr MSIX deployment with phone experience

    Deploying a new verion of a msix application via Configmgr requires a new deployment.
    Why not change this behavior so it is possible use the same deployment to do update?

    example:
    Application01 version 1 is an msix application, and it is deployed via Configmgr.

    When there is an update available, it is deployed by updating the source directory and content is distributed to the DP's
    then next time a user start Application01 it will be updated.

  7. Allow Email Approval Requests to go to Manager / Owner / Support Contact

    First off - Thank-you very much for the Email approval in CM 1810.
    For the first improvement request, I'd like to request it be able to be sent to Manager or Application / Support owner already identified in the application.

    These 3 options would cover nearly every workflow possibility instead of a hardcoded email address.

    Usually you require permission from a BA or Business owner of the application, a Technical resource (Helpdesk, etc), or your Supervisor for an application. 2 of these items are already tracked in the application, and the third is (should) populated in AD for the requestingā€¦

    I appreciate the design is very different but it would be great if a package could be called as a dependency for an Application

  9. Deployments in a Task Sequence

    Provide a task sequence step to install all targeted applications, programs and software updates.
    Where imaging a PC is done on a limited time it would be beneficial to install all applications.
    Similar to this.

  10. Task Sequence tab within Applications

    Within the Application information tabs such as Summary, Deployment Types and Deployments one for Task Sequences would be helpful. This would allow other SCCM Console users easily identify Apps used within Task Sequences.

  12. Software License Management - The ability to block application launches via SCCM

    A feature that allows for limiting launches of desired installed applications. This feature would assist in license management for software titles with concurrent usage limitations which do not have license management solutions.

  14. Add BITS Priority settings for Package ans Application

    BITS job is creates as LOW priority when deploy package or application, but Software Updates download are launched with a BITS priority NORMAL and software updates download prior to package or applications.

    If it take a long time to download QU/FU and user want to deploy package or app immediately during client download QU/FU, users cannot do it as far as downloading QU/FU due to the difference of BITS priority.

    Add BITS Priority settings for Package ans Application in this scenario.

  15. When i distribute software/images,whatever to a distribution point, i want to be able to specify when it should go to the distribution point

    When i distribute software/images, whatever to a distribution point, i want to be able to specify when it should go to the distribution point. With bandwidth limited sites I cant let SCCM just distribute a 500mb package during the day. It Would be great to specify a day/time (sunday 3am for example) when it can update the distribution point

  17. Update "Estimated Install Time" for applications based on previous application installs

    Update the estimated install time shown in Software Center for applications based on install times from other clients. This could use an average of the install time over all clients or be more advanced and take into account system specs to determine an estimated start time.

  18. Let Software Version Become a Variable (For Detection Methods)

    I always enter the software version number for each application I am patching (Adobe Reader/Acrobat, Chrome, Firefox, Java, etc).

    I also use detection methods to determine that the new update has been installed. Is there any way the "Software Version" field I manually populate with the correct version can be a variable that can be used in the detection method MSI/File version field?

    It would be great to let the detection method use %SOFTVERSION%, for instance, which points to the software version I am defining every time.
