  1. User notification for running executions

    To increase the user experience it would be great to show a notification during an application execution.
    So when we do required deployments or user installs/uninstalls/etc an application via IFX Appstore there should be an additional notification shown e.g as balloon tip.
    Users want to see if something happens on their clients and additionally have this information in place that they are aware not to shutdown/reboot the client or unplug network cable etc..

  2. Update Notifications to Users for Application Approvals/Denials

    Currently, when users request an application through the Software Center, it will generate an email (if setup) allowing helpdesk to approve or deny the request. That feature works great and I think it is a good step forward. However, when the request is approved, no notification is sent back to the user. They would have to manually check the software center to see if the approval went through or if the system is still online outside of their defined business hours, it will automatically install. This is a poor experience from our standpoint as users tend to not notice theseā€¦

  3. OS Build level requirement for deployment types

    When making a new application, it would be helpful to have more granularity in the choices for Windows 10 so that we could target particular builds or set a minimum. If I want an application to install on 1809 but not 1803 or older, this would be where I would want to set that.

  4. Available of software download to users of Workgroup computers with Application Catalog sign-in

    Currently, workgroup client cannot download software if the application is deployed to user collection. Hope the subsequent release support workgroup client to download/install software based on user collection membership through Application Catalog sign-in or Software Center.

  5. Include friendly names for content IDs, Application IDs, etc. in log files

    Having only the internal IDs of objects in the logs causes a lot of extra work when tracing through a log file going back and forth to find out what an Id is in "human terms".

    It would be great if there was a friendly description included alongside the Id e.g. "Application not discovered. [AppDT Id: ScopeId_A0857DD4-CD56-4262-B209-7DC212F0E26B/DeploymentType_1e8b52ad-60df-49f7-8d33-e18cefa2134d, (My Friendly App Name/My Friendly Deployment Name), Revision: 2]

    While I realize that the names are really metadata and subject to change, having them in the logs would greatly speed up troubleshooting at times.

  6. Check if Application is installed before downloading whole package

    Check if Application is installed before downloading whole package. Currently if I wanted to install Office 365, Configuration Manager will download the whole 2.2 GB file before evaluated if it is already installed.

  7. Restart Option during the deployment

    Restarting the PC during the deployment only prompt with Count down we would ideally need a prompt similar to WSUS Updates installation so that user has the option to post pone the restart or restart the PC immediately

  9. Allow API integration for application approval requests

    We would like to see a feature whereby the approvals workflow for applications can be handed off to an external system. For applications which require an approval or license acquisition workflow, capture the userID of the requestor and allow for some user-defined form fields to be shown to the end user.

    For example, let's say my end users wants Visio but this requires a puchase of an individual license before they can install it. The app portal should allow capture of some user-defined fields (office location, fiscal approver, etc.) and we should be able to pass this to an externalā€¦

  10. Add all application information to a sql view

    We use in applications the field "Administrator comments" in General Information. I like to create a report with this information but cannot find a view. Please add this to a view or better create a view for all application informations. For packages there is already one also with the comment information.

  11. Give the possibility to install applications as System or Administrator or User

    Add the possibility to set up an administrator account or service account to install applications instead of system account. Some applications are failing while the installation with the System account because of missing folders or access rights. For example CRM 2013 have some trouble to install all dependencies silently with the System account. As User with adminrights it works like a charm

  12. Remember list of Application Catalog installed apps

    Add a new view to Application Catalog that would display the list of applications that the user has previously installed from the Application Catalog regardless of what machine that application has been installed to.

    Scenario here is that the user has been using her workstation for 3 years and during that time she installed 6 different applications from the Application Catalog. Then the user gets a new workstation with the default set of application. She could go to the Application Catalog and see all Apps that She has installed previously on his/her old workstation and install the same ones toā€¦

  13. Scalable list of membership rules or button to show list in another window

    The list of membership rules (Asset and Compliance -> Collection -> Properties -> Membership Rules) is way too small.
    We can only see three entries (lines)

  14. App-v 5.1 apps blocked by applocker

    Having issues with app-v 5.1 apps when using SCCM as a managed installer. Any app-v 5.1 app deployed through the standard SCCM APP-V deployment process is blocked by applocker. MSI deployment are fine.

  15. Diversify Windows 10 versions in the OS Condition

    Many of newer features, both SCCM and non-SCCM, require a minimum version of Windows 10. It would help a lot if they (1703, 1607, 1511, etc.) were listed on the attached screenshot. Perhaps even list LTSB vs CB/CBB on a different (higher) node as well.

  17. Allow changing an application's scheduled time and available or required

    With the application model we are no longer able to change the availability schedule or deadline after the application is created - or even expire it. The only way to stop a required application is to delete it, which purges the reporting data. We would like to see this changed so you are able change the deadline/avail time/or if the deployment is required or available.

  18. Select Multiple Applications for Single Deployment

    I have a very simple idea. We should have the ability to select multiple applications for a single deployment to a group.

  19. Export/Archive Apps with all Informations on Filesystem

    An option to Export Apps/Packages to Filesystem would be perfect. If i remove an SCCM App i can copy the Sources to my Archive on the Filesystem, but I loose the Information like Deployment Types, Description, Detection methods ans more.

    We have hundreds of Apps which need to be Archived manually.

  20. Disable Computer Keyboard and Mouse option during Deployment

    I'd like to see the option of logging off the user and performing a Package install and having a "Maintenance being performed" type of screen showing with no ability to logon to shutdown. This could be similar to when software is being installed on an Endpoint in write mode and would be used for critical installs or when you need the user OUT of the application you are upgrading/installing.
