  2. Add User Categories to application list (column and search)

    Would really great addition, if we can have ability to sort and search application based on User Categories. In large organizations where thousands applications exists, using filters in Software Center is only way to make user life easier. However managing categories is really difficult, since we need to actually enter app properties to see what categories are assigned. making exact copy in admin categories is one way to do it, but I don't think admin categories were created to be a shadow copy of user categories.

  3. limit user deployments by device collection

    It would be nice to have content/policy deployed to a user collection to be able to consider membership of a device collection...resulting in a test on if the device to which the user policy is executing is a member of the associated device collection before execution.

    The possible device collections should be enumerated considering what is visible by the individual creating the deployment (if so desired to be changed). While it is possible that an administrative user is delegated the ability to deploy policy to users and not devices (thus cannot see any device collections), in this scenario perhaps theā€¦

  4. Approval Requests - change relation from GUID to Device Name

    is it possible to change that relationship of request and device from GUID to device name, or even Hardware ID, something that is constant. In perfect environment it is ok, but in the though reality large environments struggling with many issues. One is that Clients are registered with new GUIDs for many reasons. When request is approved and then this relation ship is lost, because new account for the same machine, users are asked to re-request the same app. It has even more impact with new features when we can push software automatically and remove as well. Worst scenario possibleā€¦

  5. Automate creation of Office 365 Application for new versions

    Go 1 step further with the new Office Customisation Service shown a Ignite. Currently the service allows admins to create a new application installer for x version of Office. Automate this!

    A common annoyance currently is that we have Office 365 packaged as an application in ConfigMgr. This application is apart of a Task Sequence to install Windows 10. At time of creation, the Office application is up to date. However, once the latest version of Office is released, this will result in the machine installing the old version during the TS, and then installing updates post build via whateverā€¦

  6. Allow for available applications to be made "persistent"

    Currently, an "available" application installed through the Software Center, will not be re-installed if the detection method for that application fails (for whatever reason) in the future

    There should be some way to set a "persistence" flag on an "Available" application such that it is similar to being "Required" after a successful install. The only way to make such an application not re-install is if the SCCM client removes it (whether pushed centrally, or by the user uninstalling from Software Center).

    Why would you want this? For a Required application, a scripted detection method designed to compare the local versionā€¦

  7. Add an option to automatically distribute a new application or package.

    After you create a package, or application, instantly go to the Distribute window or a box asking if you want to go there. I forget to distribute new packages almost every time.

  8. Allow users (settings) deployment in Deployment Type which runs as SYSTEM

    We are always struggling with user settings deployment (%Appdata%, CU Registry, files in User profile). Now we need to build another deployment type or application. Or we deploy settings with GP Preferences. But the possibility to run a script during deployment in the user context would solve a lot of additional administration. It will make out lives a lot easier ;-)

  9. Allow a deadline time in which required application installs can be installed outside of maintenance windows

    It would be nice to see an option where you can set an application deployment to run outside of the maintenance window after a specific amount of time has passed. Sometimes it is hard to catch laptops in a MW and I generally set myself a reminder to allow install outside of MW to workstation deployments after a few weeks have passed but it would be nice to see this as a feature as sometimes I forget and I am sure not the only one who would find it useful

  10. Scalable list of membership rules or button to show list in another window

    The list of membership rules (Asset and Compliance -> Collection -> Properties -> Membership Rules) is way too small.
    We can only see three entries (lines)

  11. merge source with update

    Servicing mode of Any package or application that are created like
    O365 Client to be patched or update thru an Software update that will modified the content (slipstream) with the latest version .
    like this we can use into an TS or any new Advertisement with the correct source uptodate.
    And spare bandwith and deployment time for be ready on User side (not creating an initial deployment that will be patched after by and Software update one) to achive the result of end user side to have the latest one.

  12. Installing a superceded application from Application Catalog - Requirements not met

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/e27f4756-1249-4c7c-860c-49bf80363510/installing-a-superceded-application-from-application-catalog-requirements-not-met?forum=configmanagerapps

    Refering to this post on the TechNet-Forums, i don't know if this is a bug or by design. We're experiencing the described behavior since v1702. Before that, we were able to reinstall superseded versions from the application catalog / softwarecenter just fine.

    This is bagging me because we used this Feature extensively for UAT of new application versions.

  13. Have a right click option for Applications in SCCM to create a collection of devices its installed on.

    It would be useful if there was an option in the SCCM console to right click on an application and have an option to automatically set up a collection using the detection method specified for the application.

    i.e. If we have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC v18.11 Application in SCCM, be able to right click it and "create a collection of device or user installs" automatically using the detection method i.e. Windows installer product code or presence of executable plus version etc.

    Obviously this can be done manually but would be good if it could be made easier :)

  15. Show Dependent Task Sequences when trying to delete an application

    Instead of just showing the number of dependent task sequences when trying to delete an application list them out. Give more information such as the task sequence name it is assigned.

  16. user notifications - task sequences

    Install behaviour and inplace upgrade task sequences user notifications could benefit with some improvements.

    If users don't meet the set criteria, i.e. have the open application or don't meet the upgrade readiness check, the message to the user shows failure and reports as failure. This is not accurate, it should request the user close affected programs and if it doesn't meet the requirements for upgrade i.e. low disk space, not enough memory, it should display a user friendly message explaining the issue to the customer. A new category, failed readiness check should record this.

  17. Integrate certificate for AppX applications

    When deploying AppX applications through SCCM you require a certificate that is provided by the publisher.

    Although you can deploy the certificate using SCCM it is a separate process to the application deployment.

    It would be good to integrate the certificate with the application itself. It would be even nicer if there were options for creating alerts for certificate expiry for the application too.

  18. Bug - Office 365 Deployment

    Office 365 Client Installation deployment features in 1806 appear to be incomplete and problematic. Uninstall statements are not filled in for one. Application Catalog tab is not filled out either. For some reason, creating deployment sources using the new OCT link integration creates sources which are missing files and generates a 30821-1505 error. Running the setup.exe directly from the source also behaves the same. Running ODT manually appears to work, and the source can be imported into SCCM as it was in prior releases.

  19. Add a column for number of distribution points.

    Please add a column in views such as "\Software Library\Overview\Application Management\Applications" so that we can see how many distribution sites the app / package has been distributed to.
    Its only a small thing but gives a very quick and easy reference to keep peace of mind.

  20. 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.
