  1. Packages do not honor reboot exit code

    When passing a 3010 or 1641 exit code from a program the execmgr reports "The exit code is 1641, the execution status is SuccessRebootRequired" but no reboot is actually pending on the system. Reboots from these exit codes do not change the reboot status and therefore never gets called.

  2. Allow choosing from all available application icon sizes

    When you create or modify an application and choose an icon for it from a file, I believe CM automatically chooses the first icon it sees from the index. In reality a single file can have multiple sizes and colors. It would be nice if CM could show you the list of available icon and sizes from the file index and let you choose which one to display.

  3. Windows Installer - Support PATCH property

    When created a MSI installer deployment type, when I specify the PATCH attribute SCCM should automatically pass in the CURRENTDIRECTORY to the MSP specified. Otherwise a 1635 error occurs as the installer cannot find the MSP. This forces everyone to use a "SCRIPT" installer type and put it in a batch file and use %~dp0.

  4. web application

    The current implementation of Web Applications is very limited. Quite frankly, I'm not sure why this was implemented so poorly: batch files are more flexible than this!

    I'd like to see this expanded in several ways: choices of where to put the icon (start menu, public desktop, user's desktop), appearance of the icon.

  5. Ability to deploy all application in a folder.

    I'd like to right click on a folder and have the option to Deploy all the apps in that folder.

  6. Windows Installer - Provide GUI for installation

    Instead of providing a GUI to specify the MSIEXEC command line for the MSI installer type, please provide a GUI that allows the desired check boxes, a path for a log (and drop down for log level), and a tab for PATCH to specify patches, and a PROPERTIES table to add properties to a list. It is misleading to even put "MSIEXEC" in the installer, if you remove it, it just breaks the install.

    When importing a MSI file the default Deploment Type should include the /quiet /norestart switches on both the install/uninstall. It should also default the logs toā€¦

  7. Universal Application Upgrade Deployment

    Current universal apps require older version app should not be running on client computer when you deployed upgrade package to clients.

    When you deploy upgrade to clients old version running deployments failing with error "Resource already in use".

    Customers trying to use wrapper programs to terminate running process. Instead of wrapper program Configuration Manager should be handle the process termination.

  8. UDA & Approval Improvements

    I created a UV item for one component of this and supported others that involve some of these items but I think it makes sense to have one that encapsulates all items.

    1. Be able to specify the number of Primary Devices that can be associated with users. Being allowed to have more than one device associated with a user makes the deployment of licensed apps more precarious.

    2. Allow e-mails for Approval Requests and allow the flexibility for creating a workflow for multiple approvers.

    3. Be allowed to do Approvals for the User and the Device. I'd love toā€¦

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

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

    This make 'supersede' application easier to identify.

  10. Manage Windows 10 Inbox App updates and language via Configuration Manager

    Updating Inbox Apps or switching the language of Inbox Apps to installed Language Packs requires machines to have access to Microsoft Store. Clients in areas that do not allow any internet connection (e.g. regulatory limitation) cannot update or switch the language.
    Since Microsoft is using DOD running completely in Windows 10 as a showcase, I am always wondering if all DOD machines have Microsoft Store access.
    If Configuration Manager would host and update the sources for the Inbox Apps incl. language files, we could also participate from the content delivery optimizations.

  11. Hover over help, define and examples.

    In sections like Detection rule when using different operators like between, one of, none of. Provide formatting examples on hover for single and multiple entries.

  12. Pre-download content to cache for required app deployments asap and not wait for deadline

    Required deployments of SWUpdates gets downloaded to clients ASAP, but required applications wait for the deadline to hit before downloading the content.
    I would like the required application deployment to have the same option to pre-download ahead of the deadline. That way we can be positive the installation start at that time.

  13. Automatic refresh/update after you do "Update distribution point"

    When updating a package over "Update distribution point" we always have to click outside of the section/folder in order to get an updated status of the package we are updating. It would be nice to have it automatically refreshed only for that particular software.

  14. Maintenance Window Templates

    The concept of Maintenance Window Templates would allow an administrator to device pre-configured Maintenance Windows (The timeframes and recurrence schedules) which could then be chosen from when configuring Collection Maintenance Windows. In addition, these same pre-defined Maintenance Windows could be made available (via Software Center, if allowed by the admin) for end users to be able to change the individual system Maintenance Window on demand from that pre-defined list.

    This is essentially an expansion on the "Business Hours" feature however it allows the admin to specify maintenance windows which may align with Business Unit or IT Maintenance Window schedules.

  15. MSI feature management

    It would be great if the Deployment Types had a feature to manage MSI features.

    Currently I have a need for it for Microsoft LAPS.
    All our machines need the CSE feature and select employees need the Management and Management.UI features.

    Using the default detection method making two different applications with the same MSI, installing different features, will result in the second application to run to evaluate as installed before it runs.
    Making detection methods for the different features of an MSI can be difficult work.

    An ability to manage the features in an MSI via Deployment Types and Detectionā€¦

  16. Reuseable .exe list for closing running Application

    Would be nice to be able to create a default list of .exe's that can be selected for the detection of open apps feature. And/or have CM remember them and keep a running history to dynamically build those exclusions. That way, you don't have to type in the same exclusions over and over, or fat finger them or keep them in notepad to remember.
