  1. Ability to specify a Software Update as a dependency

    I'd like the ability to choose a Software Update as a dependency for applications. Instead of creating .NET 4.6.1 as an Application, specify the Software Update for it that is already in place.

  2. Applications Modification: Bug?

    When trying to update or modify an existing application or its Deployment Type you cannot make any changes to the either one. This seems to be a bug from what I am seeing with 1710. I did find a possible workaround by deleting the current deployment before making any changes to the application. Then after you've made all the changes you can re-deploy the application to your device collection. I get the attached error message when trying to make changes before deleting the device collection deployment.

  4. 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 ;-)

  5. Multiple Application uninstall

    We are seeing that an application can be uninstalled only once by the same deployment. We use to install and uninstall the same application multiple times adding and removing the computer from the install and ininstall collections. For apps unfortunately we do not have the choice to say "Always allow".
    When targeted to install an App reinstalls by default at each detection cycle. The uninstall runs only once (no detection method).

    In order to avoid to create additional deployments, it would be great if the installation of an app though SCCM could remove the client status message of the successfulā€¦

  6. A better way of detecting programs installed in AppData

    recently Microsoft have been using AppData to install applications like OneDrive and Teams, the issue is we can not use the following as a detection method (%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams) as the way SCCM works is it will convert %userprofile% as the service account and not the currently logged in user.

  7. installbehavior

    The dialog window for the InstallBehavior should pop-up directly on the users desktop and not only at the Softwarecenter, if the user interacts with it.

  8. List all applications and packages by criteria

    Many customers are using packages and (!) applications. There's no way in the console to list all "software items" in one view to get a list of all applications and packages. That would be extremely handy when you need to answer the question "is that piece of software an app or a package" when deploying it. Please add such a view e.g. to the folder "Application Management".

  9. Have an option under Repair Application to run the uninstall and then install commands

    in addition to being able to specify a separate command for application repair, it would be nice to be able to just have it run the already specified uninstall command followed by the install command.

  10. Add Options to Deployment Type (Application Model) or Deployment to Allow Filtering

    When deploying an application to a user based collection (or computer for that matter), it would be nice to be able to filter the deployment based on criteria such as operating system WITHOUT the need to create a second application. Similar to how the requirements section of the application model works but deployment specific.

    Proposed Solution 1
    Create a requirements or filter for deployments similar to how filters work on group policy objects. Essentially you would be given the option during a deployment to filter the installation ā€“ so if those requirements arenā€™t met the deployment doesnā€™t take place.

  11. Please add an option to be able to pause Application deployments!!!

    Once Application deployments go out, you cannot stop them.

    With Package deployments you can at least expire them if an issue arises, and save the data relating to that deployment. Once the Application deployment is deleted, you lose all the data of the affected machines.

  13. 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.

  14. Resend application approval request email if in "Requested" status after x days

    It would be nice if application approval request emails would resend if they are in the "requested" status after x amount of days as a reminder or if they email accidentally was deleted.

  15. Application Uninstall Evaluation Delay

    Using some native application uninstallers they appear to complete, i.e. successful execution, before the uninstall process actually completes (typically a secondary uninstall process has been launched). This then triggers the Application evaluation which sees the Application is still present, i.e. files or registry settings still present, and so fails the uninstall. However at the next Application evaluation the uninstall has completed and the Application is successfully evaluated as uninstalled. This could be prevented if a delay could be configured between the uninstall "completing" and the Application evaluation running. This can be done with scripts of course but you basically windā€¦

  16. Integrate App-V into the SCCM Client.

    Much like how SCEP is installed by the CM client when the option is enabled. Give an option to enable App-V in the client settings and the client installs App-V and any prerequisites.

  17. Option to pre-download the media for 'Available' app deployments before users see the advertisement

    A feature I would like to see is when you 'advertise' an application (i.e. make it 'Available' instead of 'Required') on Software Center, that there should be an option for pre-downloading the content before the users see the notification that it is available for install. This is useful in those environments where we have slower links. If the app media is large, then currently users have to wait for a long time after they click 'Install' to download and install it. If downloading is done before user knows about the availability then it is much more convenient and faster.

  18. Add a tab that reveals content locations for Applications

    Add a tab at the bottom of the Console window (viewable while under the Software Library tab) that shows content locations for the currently highlighted app. This tab would appear beside the "Deployment Types" tab and the "Deployments" tab. This would allow admins to easily see where the content has already been distributed, without having to open the application.

    While visiting content locations on this tab, one could right-click on a location (or highlight multiple locations) and choose to redistribute content.

  20. Have a Deployement Type Requirement for an Application Installed\Not Installed without creating a Global Condtion

    Instead of creating a Custom Condition of an Application's Existence on specific machines before deploying an app, we could have a drop down that contains the list of already created applications in CM and select the existence or non existence of an application before deployment of said application. Constantly creating Global Conditions is a little strange to me. Thanks.
