  1. Allow already deployed applications to be modified for email approval

    Allow already deployed applications to be modified for email approval.

    With 1810 you can now select to have emails sent when an application approval request is generated. That's great! However, you can only do it for applications that are deployed after the upgrade to 1810

    It would be great if this functionality could be added to applications that are already deployed.,

  2. Enable creating a working copy of an application to check in and out

    We need the ability to test edits to an application before putting them into production. Making a copy breaks dependency and supercedence relationships.

    I would like to ask for the ability to check out an application to make edits. Once the edits are tested, we would be able to check back in the changes.

  3. Modify dependent deployment types in References tab of Applications Properties Window

    When you are in the references tab of an application and you select 'Applications that depend on this application', it lists the applications and the referring deployment types. There are hyperlinks to take you to the applications and deployment types.

    I expected to be able to click on these links and be able to modify the applications/deployment type. Instead the links open the objects in read-only mode.

    I expected to be able to copy this table data to put it into excel. This functionality isn't here.

    This makes the work flow more busy for replacing say a VC++ 2017 redistributableā€¦

  4. Defer application download until maintenance period

    When deploying software to device collections that have a maintenance period the software downloads then waits for the maintenance period to begin installing. It would be great to have the option to defer the downloading process until either the maintenance period or a set amount of time before the maintenance period. This would allow IT departments to defer large software deployments to a time when network traffic is low.

    Optionally, provide a new option in the maintenance period settings for when application downloads are allowed to happen.

  5. Packages that are larger than the Cache size should have a feature to increase the cache size as part of the package and automatically reduc

    Application Packages that are larger than the Cache size on the computer should have a feature to increase the cache size as part of the package and automatically reduce the size when the package is installed. E.X. Cache size of the computer is 10240MB, Adobe Creative Cloud is 18000MB packaged in SCCM. SCCM should have an option or the ability to tell the computer cache to increase for this application so that it can install when pushed, then once it is installed reduce it back to the 10240MB size.

  6. Dynamic Deadlines on Deployments

    I would love to be able to configure deadlines that are based on how long a device/user has been in the collection. This way, the deployment will be "available" for, say 7 days, and then will become required. This would allow the use of 1 collection and deployment to be used over time.

  7. 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.

  8. edit custom requirements

    Once you create a custom requirement, you can then not edit the custom requirement under the Create Deployment Wizard type. We should have an edit button to edit the custom requirement you created.

  9. Allow additional settings on phased deployments.

    I would really like to be able to change the settings for a phased deployment. I mostly manage servers and I would love to use phased deployments to push to servers say when I have to push out a new agent. The problem is there isnā€™t the ability to say ignore maintenance window nor can I set the deployment to not be visible in software center.

  10. In app approval for new deployments, let us have templates based on roles in the Org.

    In app approval for new deployments, let us have templates based on roles in the Org. like CIO, CEO, CTO etc or AD/Office 365 groups where multiple people can approve where this can be can be reported in Teams etc. This way it will be easier to deploy apps an attach approval.

  11. 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

  12. Task Sequence Applications removal/update.

    When you are retiring an application it would be extremely convenient if you were given an option to remove it from all task sequences or update it to the newer version. A small prompt could walk you through this and easily help get everything setup for a very clear removal or swap of applications.

  13. Distribution package with no sources

    The scenario which I am able to duplicate is:
    Create package with sources, distribute it and wait for successful distribution. Uncheck option that the package has sources and then we can see that DP is still trying to distribute the package.
    Properties of package can be changed by mistake but if the product is not working like there should not be possible to change the package properties - uncheck the option that package has sources should be not possible.

    It would be nice to have the search box available in the "All Microsoft Edge Updates" node too.

    Add a right click option to see what task sequences an Application is associated to.

    This make 'supersede' application easier to identify.

  16. 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.

  17. Additional columns when showing deployment types

    Additional columns within the application Deployment Type tab. I'd like to be able to add/remove columns for fields such as:
    -Content Location
    -Installation Program
    -Uninstall Program
    -Product Code
    -Detection Method
    -User Experience (Behavior, logon requirement, Max Run Time)
    -Requirements
    -Dependencies (Expanded, view array of all dependencies or dependency names would be nice)

  18. 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

  19. 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€¦
