  1. App Approval - Include User “comments” in Email

    The new App Approval feature in 1810 is looking great. So we can build on integration with other services and service desk software it would be handy to include the users “comment” in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a “cost” and “billing code” field to the app request will enable the app procurement lifecycle to more streamlined.

  2. Be able to see if the deployment group is a user group or a computer group in the deployment tab

    As we can see the information Grouping name, Mandatory or not ..., would it be possible to see if the group on which we are deploying is a user or a computer?

  3. Automatically Close

    Thank you for the Auto close of the executable specified on the install behavior, the problem I have is chrome.exe, aftre the application closes, it starts the install, if the user just starts it up again, it continues to run again, leaving 2 versions installed, chrome.exe, and new_chrome.exe, with the request to admin credentials to update, corrupting the installation

    Can we add to the Automatically close, keep closed until installation returns a Zero

  4. Update "Estimated Install Time" for applications based on previous application installs

    Update the estimated install time shown in Software Center for applications based on install times from other clients. This could use an average of the install time over all clients or be more advanced and take into account system specs to determine an estimated start time.

  5. 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).

  6. 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.

  7. When removing an application or package that is in a task sequence

    SCCM will tell you when you remove an application that it exists in a task sequence. Is it possible to have it tell you what the task sequence(s) it is in?

  8. 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 requesting…

  9. 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.,

  10. Schedule Phased Deployments

    When setting up a normal (non-phased) deployment, you can schedule a date and time for the deployment to start.

    Having the same ability for phased deployments would be very handy!

  11. Improve app model logging

    Make it easier to troubleshoot application deployment with:
    - Consolidated log file
    - Make logging easier to understand and find the reason for failures.
    For a new SCCM Admin/Tech troubleshooting appdeployment is hard, have to understand the different log files and know which one to read.

  12. Right-Click a single device or collection and Install Application/Package without additional configurations

    The ability to right-click a single device, or a device collection and select an option saying "Install Application or Package". This would then allow you to deploy an application or package without having to use a collection, especially if just for one device. It would also allow you to deploy the application or package without needing to build out a deployment for that application. It will just install the selected application or package without any additional configurations needed.

    How often do we need to deploy an application to just one machine that is outside of a collection, or deploy to…

  13. Task Sequence tab within Applications

    Within the Application information tabs such as Summary, Deployment Types and Deployments one for Task Sequences would be helpful. This would allow other SCCM Console users easily identify Apps used within Task Sequences.

  14. Ability to deploy an Applications "Incremental Test" version to certain test computers

    Scenario :
    I have an application that is deployed to all computers in my environment. The live version of that application is 1.2
    I then want to be able to create a new version (1.3) of THAT same application and only deploy those changes to a certain set of testcomputers.
    When all testing is done I want to change the "LIVE" version of the application to 1.3 and this will automatically deploy version 1.3 to all my computers.

  15. Distribute content faster with torrent technology

    Content will be broken up into many small fragments, these fragments will be distributed on all distribution points, all distribution points share these fragments among each other until all distribution points have the complete content. At the end, the content is checked for completeness by means of a checksum. This significantly increases the performance!

  16. 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.

  18. Software Center - Group Name of Applications

    Having the ability to make applications available under Applications Group Name and visually seeing the group name with the list of applications. Handy for departmental applications.

  19. Require an approval process to deploy a new Application.

    We use a lot of contractor resources as surge resources for application packaging. Could you implement an approval process (similar to that of Run Scripts) that would require approval before someone could Deploy a newly created Application? This would greatly improve quality and ensure all new Applications have been reviewed to reduce the risk of an ooops.

  20. Implementing a return code to reboot with fast retry

    When an application is checking for pending reboot there is no way to create a reboot with fast retry. In my scripts, I am just doing a fast retry but if the user is out of the office the script may loop for a long time. If the session is logout why not rebooting with fast retry?
