  1. 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.

  2. Deployment prerequisites e.g. check for pending reboot

    I would like to see options to have the ConfigMgr client check for prerequisite.
    E.g. pending reboot.
    I am about to deploy Office 2019, at the silent setup fails if there is a pending reboot.
    If the client could check for pending reboots before running a deployed installation, it would result in fewer failures.
    If a prerequisite is not met, the client should move on to other deployments and return to the first, rechecking the prerequisites.
    If the prerequisite is "no pending reboots", the client should wait till a reboot has been made.

    Other prerequisites could be battery level, connectionā€¦

  3. Run detection without downloading application

    When using dependencies and superseedence it seems that the client downloads applications to be able to run the detection method.

    My scenario is that i have Application A which from today is dependent of Application B. i added Application B as a dependency and now Software Center shows that it wants to download 11 components. This would be every single superseeded application back to the first version of Application A in our environment.

  4. Add assigned time to Admin Console Deployment Display

    When lookin g at the Monitoring\Deployment Display it would be helpful to be able to add the assigned time of a package so that we could sort on that column and have a list of what is deploying and exactly when as a helpful reminder, and at a single glance instead of having to drill down on individual deployment attributes in a single package.

  5. "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.

  6. 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.

  7. Have a right click option for Applications in SCCM to create a collection of devices its installed on.

    It would be useful if there was an option in the SCCM console to right click on an application and have an option to automatically set up a collection using the detection method specified for the application.

    i.e. If we have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC v18.11 Application in SCCM, be able to right click it and "create a collection of device or user installs" automatically using the detection method i.e. Windows installer product code or presence of executable plus version etc.

    Obviously this can be done manually but would be good if it could be made easier :)

  8. Bug - Office 365 Deployment

    Office 365 Client Installation deployment features in 1806 appear to be incomplete and problematic. Uninstall statements are not filled in for one. Application Catalog tab is not filled out either. For some reason, creating deployment sources using the new OCT link integration creates sources which are missing files and generates a 30821-1505 error. Running the setup.exe directly from the source also behaves the same. Running ODT manually appears to work, and the source can be imported into SCCM as it was in prior releases.

  9. Packages do not honor reboot exit code

    When passing a 3010 or 1641 exit code from a program the execmgr reports "The exit code is 1641, the execution status is SuccessRebootRequired" but no reboot is actually pending on the system. Reboots from these exit codes do not change the reboot status and therefore never gets called.

  10. Allow choosing from all available application icon sizes

    When you create or modify an application and choose an icon for it from a file, I believe CM automatically chooses the first icon it sees from the index. In reality a single file can have multiple sizes and colors. It would be nice if CM could show you the list of available icon and sizes from the file index and let you choose which one to display.

  11. 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.

  12. Windows Installer - Support PATCH property

    When created a MSI installer deployment type, when I specify the PATCH attribute SCCM should automatically pass in the CURRENTDIRECTORY to the MSP specified. Otherwise a 1635 error occurs as the installer cannot find the MSP. This forces everyone to use a "SCRIPT" installer type and put it in a batch file and use %~dp0.

  13. web application

    The current implementation of Web Applications is very limited. Quite frankly, I'm not sure why this was implemented so poorly: batch files are more flexible than this!

    I'd like to see this expanded in several ways: choices of where to put the icon (start menu, public desktop, user's desktop), appearance of the icon.

  15. uninstall deadline not honoured (App-V 4.6 application in this case)

    Bug I think: I deployed the uninstall action for an App-V 4.6 application through SCCM, with a deadline in the year 2099 (to allow leeway for monitoring before and after in my testing), but it ran as soon as it hit.

    Deployed to user, install outside maintenance windows (so I would see it in Software Center without having to wait till after work).

    Inconvenient, not a show-stopper.

  16. Option to delete install cache of Application after successful install

    SCCM Task Sequences and Application Groups have option to delete install cache after install. Can we have the same for Single Applications, rather than having to create Task\Application sequences? Sometimes I just need to deploy a single app to a collection and want the install cache to be removed after a successful install, and not have it take up valuable disk space as some Apps we deploy are 20GB+ in size.

  17. Automatic selection of distribution point when only one is available

    When a site only has one distribution point, this point should be chosen automatically when distributing content.
    There is really no need for the manual selection process.

  18. Deploy and Update VSCode natively

    Similar to how you integrated Edge deployment and maintenance into CM, could you do the same for VSCode?

    Pretty much the same as this, but for vscode

  19. Windows Installer - Provide GUI for installation

    Instead of providing a GUI to specify the MSIEXEC command line for the MSI installer type, please provide a GUI that allows the desired check boxes, a path for a log (and drop down for log level), and a tab for PATCH to specify patches, and a PROPERTIES table to add properties to a list. It is misleading to even put "MSIEXEC" in the installer, if you remove it, it just breaks the install.

    When importing a MSI file the default Deploment Type should include the /quiet /norestart switches on both the install/uninstall. It should also default the logs toā€¦

  20. Universal Application Upgrade Deployment

    Current universal apps require older version app should not be running on client computer when you deployed upgrade package to clients.

    When you deploy upgrade to clients old version running deployments failing with error "Resource already in use".

    Customers trying to use wrapper programs to terminate running process. Instead of wrapper program Configuration Manager should be handle the process termination.
