  1. Uninstall Failed - Rule is in Conflict, Show Conflicting Deployment

    Currently, we are in the process of cleaning up installed applications. We have been seeing rule is in conflict of other rules more frequently. On the Deployment view we see More Detail including the conflicting application, which is the application we are trying to remove. That application has no other deployments than the uninstall. Unfortunately it does not show the deployment that is causing this behavior. I'm aware you can not have available or required (install) deployments, however this goes beyond that.

  3. Add "Remove Application" task to a task sequence

    There is a "Install Software" option in the drop down list when one creates a task sequence. It will be nice if there is also a "Remove Software" option in the drop down list too. While it is possible to just deploy to uninstall just one MSI application, it will be nice if one can uninstall multiple MSI application in a task sequence.

  4. Detection method scripts should run with -File

    Currently, application detection method scripts are ran in such a way that it causes issues with certain levels of PowerShell Constrained Language Mode. An example of how scripts are run is below.

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe" -NoLogo -Noninteractive -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass "& 'C:\WINDOWS\CCM\SystemTemp\11a53fac-8144-438e-aa01-6d2378be848b.ps1'"

    To better allow detection method scripts to be ran under Constrained Language mode, the script should be ran with -File instead of with the call operator &.

    With the current configuration it is not possible to use PowerShell based detection methods in some scenarios, reducing their usefulness.

    See this idea for more info. https://ideas.patchmypc.com/ideas/PATCHMYPC-I-440

  5. Web application shortcut location

    When creating a web application, it would be great if we could choose the location it appears rather than just the program menu.

  6. Add an owner attribute to Task Sequences, Applications and Packages.

    We manage over 300 applications, and would like for SCCM reporting to list whoi is "responsible" for it.

    With that can you add an owner attribute to Task Sequences, Applications and Packages.

    Thank you

  7. Add the ability to set an Error threshold for Phased Deployments

    I would like to be able to create a threshold on Phased Deployments so that the deployment would automatically stop if it hits that threshold. Ideally this could be either a count or a percentage selected. The behavior I would want is for the deployment to go into a paused state if the error limit is hit.

  8. Allow 'Automatically upgrade any superseded version of this application' to be configurable for required deployments

    Allow 'Automatically upgrade any superseded version of this application' to be configurable for required deployments. Just like what was done for Available deployments.

  10. content status

    \Monitoring\Overview\Distribution Status\Content Status
    It would be real nice if Content Status tab also indicated if the content is Active or Retired, and a Deployment count, and the Console Path to the App/Package..
    So if something is retired I can go remove it from DP's, or if not deployed I can remove it from DP's...

  11. Deploy and Update VSCode natively

    Similar to how you integrated Edge deployment and maintenance into CM, could you do the same for VSCode?

    Pretty much the same as this, but for vscode

  12. Ability to add the application groups in Task Sequence

    Application groups can be deployed to a collection but cannot be added in a Task Sequence and then deployed. Please enable the Task Sequence deployment for Application Groups.

  13. Only on specified client platforms filter on bit version

    For many package programs I have to make two different programs one for 32 bit and another for 64 bit. Currently I have to run down the list and select the 10x 32 bit OSs and the 10x 64 bit options manually. It would be easier if we could do a one click per bit version of the OSs.

  16. Block servers from getting non-update deployments

  17. Add a Date/Timestamp to an application when it's marked Retired

    I would like to be able to see a "retired on" date for applications that are marked retired. This way if I see that an app was marked retired 3 or 6 months ago, we could work through and delete these from SCCM. Right now, there's not a good way to tell when an application was marked retired. If I'm wrong, please let me know! :)

  18. Application request email to use Givenname and Surname from Active Directory

    Would be nice if the email sent to the one approving the request could fetch the GivenName from maybe Active Directory if you have this possibility, so instead of, or make a choice between the two:

    USERNAME (Domain\Username) Would like to install APPXXXX On device with title CNDXXXXXX.

    Could be:

    Givenname Surname (Domain\Username) Would like to install APPXXXX On device with title CNDXXXXXX.

    The reason?
    In my organisation, i would like some application request the be approved by persons, which might not always be able to check which user is behind a specific username, and only knows them by theirā€¦

    If an icon has been assigned to an app, display it in the application node rather than the generic icon.

  20. Create MS Edge deployment without internet

    Actually, is it impossible to deploy MS Edge on management computer without internet: It doesnt't look like you're connected to the internet :

    Please close the wizard, check your connection and try again.
    Failed to create and establish connection to https://aka.ms/cmedgeapi

    Is it possible to add the feature with manual download or add remote download from sccm server like windows update ?
