  1. Add Deployment Type Requirement for Windows 10 versions.

    We want to be able to differentiate the Windows 10 versions. Some Appliactions should only be available to a typical Windows 10 version for example Windows 10 1803. Now(SCCM 1810) we only have the option to add a requirement for All Windows 10 (x64) or All Windows 10 (x86).

  2. Pre-install notifications & improvements to install behaviour

    Hello,

    I would find it very useful if we had the ability to create a customisable pre-install message to customers for any application, package, software update or task sequence that is deployed to a client.

    This would make it easier to provide pre-install instructions to customers such as making sure their device is connected to power, network cable or to close an application before the install continues. At the moment this is achieved by using a customisable HTA message but it's quite clunky.

    It would also be useful to improve install behaviour and inplace upgrade checks which when they areā€¦

  3. Phased Deployments - Reusable template

    Provide a way for a template of settings to be stored and invoked for new phased deployments, so the same collections/settings do not have to be specified for new phased deployments.

  4. SCCM Console: Add PackageID column in applications item view

    Get-CMApplication shows me a PackageID for my applications. In the SCCM Console in the application item view it is not selectable.

  5. Allow install and uninstall of applications in Application Group

    The TP 1905 Application Group allows to select multiple applications, but you can only install or uninstall the entire group and not individual applications.

    It would be neat to allow selecting whether those individual apps in the group should be installed or uninstalled. For e.g., in an app group for a specific user profile, I could deploy app1 as install, app2 as uninstall and app3 as install in that order.

  6. Resend application approval request email if in "Requested" status after x days

    It would be nice if application approval request emails would resend if they are in the "requested" status after x amount of days as a reminder or if they email accidentally was deleted.

  7. Add the possibility to remove/delete and extract/export application package icon

    Sometimes we pick a bad icon for the application package so we may want to remove it till theres a better one... or just want to reuse that icon because we dont have that source anymore or just arent able to find it and sometimes getting the correct icon is just crazy work (by that i mean the need to have the correct format or be able to hack the resources)

  9. Crear colecciones desde Inventoried Sotware

    Actualmente para crear una colecciĆ³n que estĆ© relacionada con una aplicaciĆ³n, es necesario crearla desde Device Collections. Si ya estĆ” creada la consulta que permite identificar las aplicaciones, serĆ­a conveniente hacer uso de esas mismas consultas para crear las colecciones simplemente presionando click izquierdo.

  11. Office 365 Installer - Detection Method

    Office 365 Installer - Detection Method
    When creating an application for Office 365 using the built-in "Office 365 Installer" feature, the application gets created with a default detection method that only uses the version.
    So, if you create 3 separate applications (Office, Project, and Visio), or if you create Applications with different languages, they all have the same detection methods.
    So, if you install Office first, you can't Visio or Project.
    The detection method should include a product and language:

    Examples:
    SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\VisioProRetail - da-dk
    SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ProjectProRetail - da-dk
    SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\O365ProPlusRetail - da-dk

  12. Add uninstall content path to the Create Deployment Type wizard

    Currently, in the New Deployment Type wizard, you can only specify a single content source. Now that we can have separate content source folders for uninstall, we have to create our deployment types without specifying this then edit the deployment type and add the second content folder. Please add the content options from the deployment type properties to the initial wizard.

  13. "Install Software on next reboot" switch for required Deployments

    "Install Software on next reboot" switch for required Deployments

    We have machines in production which are always online and only the Users can initiate a reboot or an Software Installation. It would be cool to have an option to install all required Deployments if the Users initiate a reboot. This would raise the SW-Compliance extemely, because the Users often do not take a look in the SW-Center an click on install.

  15. Detection method comments

    Add a field for adding a note in detection methods. When you have a large list of detections it would be easier to update for changes if I knew what reason I put in for each detection.

  16. Configmgr MSIX deployment with phone experience

    Deploying a new verion of a msix application via Configmgr requires a new deployment.
    Why not change this behavior so it is possible use the same deployment to do update?

    example:
    Application01 version 1 is an msix application, and it is deployed via Configmgr.

    When there is an update available, it is deployed by updating the source directory and content is distributed to the DP's
    then next time a user start Application01 it will be updated.

  17. Allow Email Approval Requests to go to Manager / Owner / Support Contact

    First off - Thank-you very much for the Email approval in CM 1810.
    For the first improvement request, I'd like to request it be able to be sent to Manager or Application / Support owner already identified in the application.

    These 3 options would cover nearly every workflow possibility instead of a hardcoded email address.

    Usually you require permission from a BA or Business owner of the application, a Technical resource (Helpdesk, etc), or your Supervisor for an application. 2 of these items are already tracked in the application, and the third is (should) populated in AD for the requestingā€¦

  19. Deployments in a Task Sequence

    Provide a task sequence step to install all targeted applications, programs and software updates.
    Where imaging a PC is done on a limited time it would be beneficial to install all applications.
    Similar to this.
