  1. Ccmcache automatically deletes application install cache on detection of successful install

    Update the application installers so that we can opt to delete the install from ccmcache when it has been successfully installed.

  2. Program modernization

    It would be nice if programs were modernized to have some of the same features as applications. This would include being able to launch a PowerShell script without extra parameters, sharing the same requirements tab and categories section, being able to use a custom icon in Software Center, and having Windows Source Management. Maybe it would be easier to just allow applications that don't use detection methods? They obviously wouldn't be able to be used as dependencies or have supersedence. Other than that I think it could work.

  4. Central maintenance of custom exit codes required.

    Central maintenance of custom exit codes required.
    When using wrappers, exit / return codes must be entered in each application. This is too cumbersome and error-prone.

  5. Support detection scripts larger than 32KB for applications

    Can you increase the size for application script detection? There is currently a limit of 32KB for a PowerShell detection script. In a normal use-case a detection script would be 10 lines or less, but there are times when longer scripts can be necessary. My case in particular requires that I query device ID's on client computers. There can be thousands of unique device ID's that I may have to check, but this puts my script above the size limitation.

  6. Create a Program by Right-Clicking in Program List, present a drop down menu with actions

    After creating the initial program with the Create Program Wizard you should be able to right-click in the new list of programs (only 1 there initially) and get a drop down menu that has a "Create Program" item. This would avoid the extra mouse swipe to the ribbon to select that function, this would be more intuitive.

  8. Have the Content Status link for a given application or package jump directly to that package's status

    Currently when viewing an Application or Package and selecting the "Content Status" link the console redirects to a list of all content, which an admin user must then navigate to find the package they just came from and finding it, click the "View Status" link for the highlighted content.
    Just skip the middle step and go directly to the specified content's status.

  9. Application Post deployment feature

    It would be beneficial to have a Post Installation feature for application deployment .
    For example If Application A and B are required however application B can only be installed after Application A. Understand Dependency can be used to achieve this however in case of inplace upgrade of Office it is advisable to remove the previous versions and then install the new version .
    A post installation feature can be useful for inplace office upgrade with all other products such as addins , Project visio can be post installed. This will considerably reduce the time for support
    Understand the workaround…

  10. Option for deployment type only with uninstall

    I would like to see an option to make a deployment type that only holds uninstall command.

    My scenario is the need to superseed multiple old versions of an application I don't have the installation files for.
    Luckily the application is always installed with MSI, so I can uninstall with the GUID.
    But today ConfigMgr requires an installation command, so there is a potential risk that someone will deploy an installation.
    An uninstall only DT would be more right, in my opinion.
    I guess an option to disable the install command could be the way to do it.

  11. Improve app model logging

    Make it easier to troubleshoot application deployment with:
    - Consolidated log file
    - Make logging easier to understand and find the reason for failures.
    For a new SCCM Admin/Tech troubleshooting appdeployment is hard, have to understand the different log files and know which one to read.

  12. 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 whatever…

  13. Add predefined action (to task sequence or application/package) to copy files/folders to user workstation (as user OR as system)

    Often whole software config is a single file. It is a pain to keep creating batch files for a simple copy action

  14. Deploy apps with extra registry settings as a post action

    In your app, have a tab that says "Tatoo these registry settings in with the install. Install finishes, blam the settings tattoo down.

  15. Application deployment troubleshooting failures - dashboard

    A Dashboard to see which devices had a particular application fail to deploy. The Dashboard lists the devices. Next to devices there would be a column with a possible reason why the application failed to deploy and possible solutions to fix the problem.

  16. Implementing a return code to reboot with fast retry

    When an application is checking for pending reboot there is no way to create a reboot with fast retry. In my scripts, I am just doing a fast retry but if the user is out of the office the script may loop for a long time. If the session is logout why not rebooting with fast retry?

  17. Crear colecciones desde Inventoried Sotware

    Actualmente para crear una colección que esté relacionada con una aplicación, es necesario crearla desde Device Collections. Si ya está creada la consulta que permite identificar las aplicaciones, sería conveniente hacer uso de esas mismas consultas para crear las colecciones simplemente presionando click izquierdo.

  18. When creating a package program, add the checkbox "Allow this program to be installed from the Install Package task sequence",

    When you go through the wizard to create a new program for a package, it would be great to have the option to check the box "Allow this program to be installed from the Install Package task sequence without being deployed" in the wizard, rather than having to go back into the package/program properties and check the box.
