  1. Required Application Deployment download settings as part of the deployment

    When a required application deployment is deployed, clients start downloading the content as soon as they get the deployment in policy.

    Need the ability to control a deployments download of content. Ie have a required deployment, but allow the client to start downloading the content after hours. allow a schedule to be placed on the deployment for download of the content. This would allow you to defer the content download to say night time hours or off peak network load times.

  2. Ability to Update Office 365 Application Deployment

    I've created an Office 365 installer via SCCM but would like the ability to "update" that application deployment instead of having to remake the entire installer deployment. Almost like the ability you have to install updates to your Windows image.

  3. Add "Run As" to Applications

    Similar to the Task Sequence "Run this step as the following account". Please add this to application installations as well. We have some "difficult to package" applications that require a user profile in order to install successfully. These applications fail to install as an application because when running as the system there is no user profile path. As a result, we have to resort to task sequences to install these which results in a worse end user experience.

  4. User initiated uninstall of required deployments

    For troubleshooting it is often necessary to uninstall/reinstall an application. For an available deployment the user can do this themselves, but for required deployments an admin must assist which is not very efficient.

    If a required deployment can have a flag for "Allow user to temporarily uninstall" and this then makes the Uninstall method available to the user in software center, the user can easily remove and reinstall the application. (or wait for reinstall in the next maintenance window)

    This will reduce IT workload and I guess it shouldn't require much changes in your code.

  6. Ability to add the application groups in Task Sequence

    Application groups can be deployed to a collection but cannot be added in a Task Sequence and then deployed. Please enable the Task Sequence deployment for Application Groups.

  7. Automatically populate Product Code field in Deployment Type when importing MSI Application

    When create an Application and import and MSI it will automatically populate the Detection Method with the Product Mode GUID. However, you still have to manually fill in the Product Code field on the Programs tab. This field is almost always a good idea if using an MSI with the application so that you can repair from Programs and Features.

  8. Application deployment pre-approval

    Currently, if I deploy an application with the "requires administrative approval" any and all requests for that deployment require an approval.

    It would be great to be able to "pre-approve" users during the deployment wizard, so that a senior help desk technician or key application users (for example) can be pre-approved to install software, while other users in the same collection might be required to formally request that software.

    Also, it seems strange that if I deploy software with "requires administrator approval" to a collection that I am in, I need to request, and then approve, my own application request.

  9. User Based Package Deployments failing after upgrade of clients to SCCM 1606 (Version 5.00.8412.1007)

    After upgrade to SCCM 1606 and the 2 latest hotfixes, if we upgrade the SCCM Clients to the latest version (5.00.8412.1007), all user based Package Deployments fail with the below error and we see the same both in Software Center and Application Catalog as below:

    Application Installation not started
    You have limited permission to request and install applications on this computer. This can occur with one of the following conditions:
    1.You do not have administrative permissions for this computer.
    2.You are working on a Remote Desktop Connection session and you are not the default user for that Remote Desktop Connectionā€¦

  10. Generate a 'fast' deployment option

    The idea here is based on customer conversations recently. During the deployment of content (all types in theory) have a tick box in the deployment wizard to make this a 'fast' deployment. This in turn would generate an immediate client action on the target collection to go check for said content which would bypass the routine scheduled check that the client would make.
    I appreciate there would be processing time to take into account so the client didn't check before deployment was processed. But of that could be worked around this could be a great option to utilise fast channel. ā€¦

  11. Add Source Path column to Application Deployment Types

    It would be useful to be able to view the source path of each Application Deployment type in the console by allowing the addition of a Source Path column.

  12. Application deployment is available/required depending if a user is logged on or not

    I'd like to create an application deployment that is available when a user is logged on and it would be automatically required if a user is not logged on.

    This is needed when application deployment can happen only if some process is not running. In 1702 you can close some running process, which helps the problem. However, there are situations when you cannot close the conflicting processes, because the user might lose some data. In these scenarios, you need a way to initiate the deployment immediately, when the user logs off or if there are no user logged on.

  13. Deploy Repair Action in Deployment Settings

    It would be great to have the option to deploy a Repair Action in the Deployment Settings within the Deploy Software Wizard. Purpose of this would be remediation of failed application installs. (eg force a repair script to run "required" on a collection of devices where standard deployment failed).

  14. Software License Management - The ability to block application launches via SCCM

    A feature that allows for limiting launches of desired installed applications. This feature would assist in license management for software titles with concurrent usage limitations which do not have license management solutions.

  15. Combine all portals into one universal portal

    There is so many different portals.

    1- Company portal app for Config manager.
    2- Software Center
    3- New software center
    4- Apple catalog

    Reason: it is way to complicated for users to decide which one to use

    Ask: create one universal portal that does all 4 is capable of doing

  16. 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.

  17. 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..

  18. 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€¦

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
