  1. Application Catalog should have the ability to detect the OS platforms.

    This is to avoid user install the wrong OS platforms applications and unnecessary error pop up which give wrong impression to end user and increase support costs. It should only shown up whatever is applicable similar like software center / Run Advertised Program (RAP).

  2. Application Deployment Review & Authorisation

    The is no current authorisation process around application deployments with the SCCM console. It would be good to see new application deployments drop into an authorisation section of the console to enable line management or approved persons/role to review and authorise for final release to the estate. This should avoid deployments being released in error or incorrectly packaged. This would align with ITIL change management.

  3. Option to trigger an application/package installation during the subsequent user logon or machine start up

    I would like to see an option for packages and applications to trigger the installation during the subsequent user logon or machine start up. This is to avoid situations where you are doing an upgrade and you don't want to run the risk of force-closing a running application which is to be upgraded as it may be running a business critical function. If it can be deferred until the subsequent logon or machine start up through an option it is much more cleaner.

  4. Task Sequence Deployments

    Task Sequence Deployments - Immediate Push Failure - Computer Policy initialization from Console.

    Forcing a computer policy against a deployment of a Task sequence (any) to run via Software Center, results in failure of downloading of the deployment policy the first time and goes in retry until the agent on the endpoint initiates a polling itself. While SCCM CB is supposed to be user centric and based on Pull methodology, sometimes a deployment needs to be pushed to users immediately and the current behavior causes lot of inconveniences and delays in deploying Task sequence based installations via Software Center (Immediate…

  5. Allow 2 sets of user experience options for deployment of application with supersedence

    Consider this scenario: You have an application deployed as Available. You create a new application that supersedes the original application and deploy it as Available but with the option to automatically upgrade any superseded versions of the application.

    I would like to customize the user notification options so I can select "Display in Software Center, and only show notifications for computer restarts" when it is available, but select "Display in Software Center and show all notifications" when it becomes required to upgrade a superseded version.

  6. Support upgrading of Windows Store for Business offline apps without requiring to uninstall

    At the moment (1610) the detection and superseding process for WSfB offline apps does not work. The old version is installed, and the new version detects as being installed but it isn't. The only way the upgrading works is if the supersede option to uninstall the previous version is checked - unfortunately this also deletes the local app data, shortcuts and tiles.

  7. Application priority not respected

    When you define the deployments in the application you can define several and SCCM would use them by priority but when you define with option "only when a user is logged on' and another with option "whether or not a user is logged on'. This deployment can't be selected in the task sequence! To work arround this bug we have to create the same application 2 times, 1 for the task sequence and 1 for normal deployment.

  8. Have a parallel "on every User" Part at Application Modell

    This feature was at a very old "Netinstall" Version - and it was very usefull.
    If i install my software to a Computer not to a user i can use the normal msi-installer function of the Application Model.
    Now i would ship a user-config for any user on this Machine.
    So the exact Thing "Active Setup" does.
    But Active Setup isn't easy to use and not transparent so i can see on a Packe-List at the Console with Package has a User-Action.

    So it would be Nice to add optional a script, command etc. that would be executed after a…

  9. Unable to target a User with an App-V 5.x App and have the middleware installed Globally so I can use plugins to IE

    I think we have a strong business case around the Application model in CM12 SP1 and using App-V 5.0 to do user-based software targeting. As Kaido and I are doing a workshop for learning more on App-V and the possibilities , we ran into some challenges I believe are critical and needs to be solved in a certain way . What the correct way is , I leave that up to the smart engineering guy’s in Redmond .

    One of the great promises of application virtualization is dynamic delivery of software to end-users; however delivering plugins or add-ons to installed…

  10. automatic phased deployment

    Wait, wait hear me out. What if you could target a deployment to a single collection and ConfigMgr just thought up random groups of 20-30 machines at a time and made the deployment available to the next group after a specified period of time. Essentially creating an automatically built phases with no real requirements other than "x" amount of time has passed since the previous groups.

  11. Application Group with different Deployment Types

    The Application Group Feature ist great! It would even better if a Application Group supports different Deployment Types (Example: User Install & System Install)

  12. Be able to see if the deployment group is a user group or a computer group in the deployment tab

    As we can see the information Grouping name, Mandatory or not ..., would it be possible to see if the group on which we are deploying is a user or a computer?

  13. Network access account password is visible

    Hi,

    The below link mention that Network access account is visible with a few line of codes:

    http://myitforum.com/myitforumwp/2015/05/11/network-access-accounts-are-evil/

    Wondering if this is true ?

    Is there a better way to deploy software application to non-domain workgroup computer without using network access account ?

    Or let the user of non-domain workgroup computer login using their domain account and make the software application available to them upon login.

    Some users might be using home edition Windows OS or overseas and cannot join to internal domain server.

  14. Real time application repair

    Support real-time application repair along side Install. Let's make it easy for our service desks to trigger a repair option. Oh and uninstall would be neat as well I guess.

  15. Software Restricted Country control

    Some Software cannot exist or run in a given country due to encryption levels or other export rules.

    1.Grant the ability to Flag a package/Application or Content for Software rules. ex RSID00001
    2. Boundary Groups - assign ID to boundary group to block software Deployment to any machine inside the boundary, grant the ability to force the Uninstall of the Application should the machine exist in the Boundary group.
    3. If not using Boundary Group then allow the ID to be assigned to a Collection, same behavior for no deployment of certain software titles match the block ID, also allow…

  16. Deployment specific maintenance windows

    Add an option on the User Experience tab for all deployments to specify a maintenance window that overrides all other windows and only applies to that particular deployment. The deployment should not run during any other maintenance windows available to the system if you configure this option either. This maintenance window should only be available for this deployment and not any other deployments targeted to the system.

    This would be a good option if you're generally loose with your maintenance windows to allow deployments more chances to run, but if you need to restrict a particular deployment to only run…

  17. Deployment's schedule

    We would like to be able to reschedule a deployment.

    Currently the schedule of an application's deployment cannot be changed. Deployment Start Time will remain the same even if the date was previously changed in the Scheduling tab.
    The only option to reschedule is to delete the old deployment first and afterwards create a new one.

  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 their…

  19. Application Details

    It would be good to have the following options in Application Tab on SCCM console:

    1) The "Size" tab as we have now for PACKAGES to check the actual size of it.
    2) The “Application ID” as we have for PACKAGES (packageID). Although we do see it under deployment tab but only if we deploy application to any collection. In case we only need to check the distribution status with any deployment being done, we have to go to content status tab and search with application name. This could be made handy as is done for Packages section.

  20. When deleting an application, have the process be similar to deleting a package where it shows exactly what is referencing the application.

    When deleting an application, have the process be similar to deleting a package where it shows exactly what is referencing the application such as which task sequences or application dependencies.

    Hunting for the task sequence references is a pain. :(
