  1. edit custom requirements

    Once you create a custom requirement, you can then not edit the custom requirement under the Create Deployment Wizard type. We should have an edit button to edit the custom requirement you created.

  2. Allow additional settings on phased deployments.

    I would really like to be able to change the settings for a phased deployment. I mostly manage servers and I would love to use phased deployments to push to servers say when I have to push out a new agent. The problem is there isnā€™t the ability to say ignore maintenance window nor can I set the deployment to not be visible in software center.

  3. In app approval for new deployments, let us have templates based on roles in the Org.

    In app approval for new deployments, let us have templates based on roles in the Org. like CIO, CEO, CTO etc or AD/Office 365 groups where multiple people can approve where this can be can be reported in Teams etc. This way it will be easier to deploy apps an attach approval.

  4. Add an owner attribute to Task Sequences, Applications and Packages.

    We manage over 300 applications, and would like for SCCM reporting to list whoi is "responsible" for it.

    With that can you add an owner attribute to Task Sequences, Applications and Packages.

    Thank you

  5. Task Sequence Applications removal/update.

    When you are retiring an application it would be extremely convenient if you were given an option to remove it from all task sequences or update it to the newer version. A small prompt could walk you through this and easily help get everything setup for a very clear removal or swap of applications.

  6. Distribution package with no sources

    The scenario which I am able to duplicate is:
    Create package with sources, distribute it and wait for successful distribution. Uncheck option that the package has sources and then we can see that DP is still trying to distribute the package.
    Properties of package can be changed by mistake but if the product is not working like there should not be possible to change the package properties - uncheck the option that package has sources should be not possible.

  7. Add search box to Edge

    It would be nice to have the search box available in the "All Microsoft Edge Updates" node too.

  8. 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.

  9. Add User Categories to application list (column and search)

    Would really great addition, if we can have ability to sort and search application based on User Categories. In large organizations where thousands applications exists, using filters in Software Center is only way to make user life easier. However managing categories is really difficult, since we need to actually enter app properties to see what categories are assigned. making exact copy in admin categories is one way to do it, but I don't think admin categories were created to be a shadow copy of user categories.

  10. Additional columns when showing deployment types

    Additional columns within the application Deployment Type tab. I'd like to be able to add/remove columns for fields such as:
    -Content Location
    -Installation Program
    -Uninstall Program
    -Product Code
    -Detection Method
    -User Experience (Behavior, logon requirement, Max Run Time)
    -Requirements
    -Dependencies (Expanded, view array of all dependencies or dependency names would be nice)

  11. Allow a deadline time in which required application installs can be installed outside of maintenance windows

    It would be nice to see an option where you can set an application deployment to run outside of the maintenance window after a specific amount of time has passed. Sometimes it is hard to catch laptops in a MW and I generally set myself a reminder to allow install outside of MW to workstation deployments after a few weeks have passed but it would be nice to see this as a feature as sometimes I forget and I am sure not the only one who would find it useful

  12. Approval Requests - change relation from GUID to Device Name

    is it possible to change that relationship of request and device from GUID to device name, or even Hardware ID, something that is constant. In perfect environment it is ok, but in the though reality large environments struggling with many issues. One is that Clients are registered with new GUIDs for many reasons. When request is approved and then this relation ship is lost, because new account for the same machine, users are asked to re-request the same app. It has even more impact with new features when we can push software automatically and remove as well. Worst scenario possibleā€¦

  14. Allow Uninstall in Phased Deployments

    Allow for uninstalling an application using Phased Deployments. This would work the same as a normal phased deployment, but give the option of uninstalling an application.

    Example Case: We need to slowly uninstall Java JRE from all 10,000 of our clients. We would like to use a Phased Deployment that runs the uninstall command in our Java JRE application to slowly remove Java JRE over a period of weeks.

  15. Separate settings for aplication installs and uninstalls

    Sometimes naughty programs require user input for uninstalls, yet their installs can be done automatically. These user input windows will often not appear for the account that is logged in. For these types of applications, it would be nice if we could specify their install be done as system, and uninstall be done as user. So I think the install and uninstall should each have separate settings in the application user experience tab.

  16. Allow Package Properties and Package monitoring nodes to open in same pane

    Allow Package Properties and Package monitoring nodes to open in same pane. Going between Monitoring and back to Packages and/or Application for Source location to view Content Status vs. the Content is somewhat unproductive. When I go to a package, and View Status, it takes me away from my package.

  17. Deployment Types - Installation Program Arguments

    Keep the current single box for 'Installation Program' and ' Uninstall Program' under the 'Programs' tab in a deployment type... however allow admins to select 'granular' switches or arguments.

    So in this option, the admin would have:
    A 'pre-program install' argument field.
    A 'program' field.
    And a 'post-program install' argument field.

    The same for un-installations.

    Additionally to this, I imagine the granular options will have a new window.
    This windows should also have a 'explore program' button, which when clicked brings up the potential switches or arguments for EXE / MSI / MSIX / etc. Allowing users to select theā€¦

  18. Office 365 Application creation configures uninstall string with xml and supplies icon

    Currently when building an Office C2R application within Configuration Manager you get the ability to configure all of your installation settings. But when the application is built it doesn't come with an uninstall string and thus no uninstall.xml file. Additionally, It would be great to have the process populate an icon for the application within Software Center.

  19. Support Powershell as an application type for Application Deployment Types

    Please consider adding deployment type of 'Powershell Script' for application deployments.

    SCCM has the ability to adjust the Powershell Execution Policy for it's scripts only. This allows powershell to be used for things like detection methods.

    However, if you want to actually install something using powershell there is no mechanism to allow this to happen. The only type of installation that you can used to run powershell is 'Script'. Since this isn't known to SCCm as powershell, it does not obey the client configured Execution Policy.

    This causes problem when attempting to deploy applications like the new Edge based onā€¦

  20. Moving application between folders does not inherit security scope on folder.

    When moving applications to a different folder, the application should inherit the folder security scope. I have to manually modify the security scope for the moved application. This is on 1906 build.
