  1. Software Center - Receive notification once software is approved

    User requests software. Admin approves software. User has no way to know when the new software request has been approved.

    It would be nice if there was a Toast Window to display, "You're new software was approved and is now ready for you to install. Click here to install."

  3. User Based deployments in Software Center process Global Conditions the way Device Based deployments do

    At the moment when an application is deployed out to a device collection, global conditions can be utilized to limit applications seen by the end user. I use this for a lot of customers whom want to make applications versions visible on (lets say) 1709, as they are still working on latter versions for the next iteration of Windows. This works really well, and it means users never see certain applications if they are not relevant, however this only seems to work for Device collection deployments.

    At present if you want to take advantage of the email approval model youā€¦

  4. Add a lunch start and end time to Software Center business hours (install apps during lunch)

    Currently, users can configure business hours on the Options pane of Software Center. Please add an optional ability for users to configure a start and stop time for lunch that authorizes Software Center to consider the time specified as being outside of business hours.

    When laptops are powered down at the end of the day users complain about being forced to receive software deployments in the morning when the mandatory installation date and time is reached. Software deployments don't install during business hours because the laptops are powered off outside of business hours do to normal user behavior. Instead ofā€¦

  5. software center notification "New Software is Available" for x no of days

    As per the design now with SCCM 1906, we are seeing software center notification "New Software is Available" only once for Packages, Software Updates and Applications.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1906#redesigned-notification-for-newly-available-software

    Can we have this pop-up to be customized for x no of days?

    For eg : We need this notification only for 4 days.

  7. Decide if software can be visible in Software Center by model of computer or collection

    At our school district we deploy testing software. We want to be able to include collections and exclude collections to what they see visible in software center without modifying the collection or having to create another collection. We set a requirement in the application, but Users still see the software and try to install it.

  8. Add a refresh button or icon in the Software Center to refresh ConfigMgr client policies and software center panel

    Add a refresh button or icon in the Software Center to refresh ConfigMgr client policies and software center panel.

    This icon could, be for instance, be located in the sidebar or somewhere else.

    Once the user click on the refresh button, this will:
    - Run configmgr client actions like "Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle" or some others.
    - Refresh the Software Center panel

  9. More Customization's for Software Center branding

    We need more customization options for branding. We cannot choose a white background color as all text is white. We need greater control of options to choose both the positive and negative color of text and color of the highlight bars.

  10. Consolidate control panel functions into Software Center

    As Windows 10 moves to Settings rather than Control Panel, the features and functions of the Configuration Manager Control Panel get harder to access and more antiquated compared to Software Center, plus they give two very different places to go to manage the client.

    Why not completely consolidate the current Control Panel functionality into Software Center via the Options section or other area. If there are concerns about user permissions, put them behind a UAC lock.

  11. Stop a Software Updates Synchronization

    During a training session I misread a Lab on Software Updates. I ran the Synchronization and proceeded to download 10k+ software updates because I did not choose the specific updates I needed for the lab correctly. I had to continue to another lab while I waited for the Synchronization to complete. This is entirely my fault, but my instructor thought this would be a good idea to see if it would be possible to stop a running synchronization of Software Updates.

  12. Software Center: Expand customization

    Now that you have the framework for customizing, can you expand for changing the fonts chosen and the colors when selected and not selected? Out logo would be best on a white banner but then you cant see the selections when you click on each option since the select bar is white and the font is white.

  13. Add License Details/Cost to Software Center

    Add the ability to display License Terms and Costs for Applications published in Software Center.

    Having a separate call out for License Cost, Term (Quarterly, Bi-Annual, Yearly, etc.) can help employees make better informed decisions before downloading software. In addition, having this published in unique fields (outside the general Notes field) enables automation capabilities when connecting to SAM solutions as these values could then be auto-updated, etc. or used to trigger license assignment on the backend.

  15. Software Center 'Uninstall' option not always available

    This issues shows for me from time to time but it seems to show mostly with available deployments and on the old Software Center. If there is only one title in the 'Installed Software' tab you generally can't select the uninstall option as it is grayed out. This seems to commonly happen when i switch to that tab but if there is multiple applications I am able to click on a different one and return to the newly installed one and 'uninstall' becomes available and when there is only one on that tab you can't 'refresh' the code to validateā€¦

  16. Allow apps to be segregated category wise when we publish apps in Software Center

    Allow apps to be segregated category wise when we publish apps in Software Center.

    In the application catalog we had the option to highlight an app as featured app in the portal. But app catalog has got deprecated and we want it in Software Center.

    1) Featured apps
    2) Apps sorted per category.

    It will be good if MS can add these 2 functionalities for Software Center.

  17. Improvement: Software Center Additional information link

    After Application Catalog changed to Software Center the Link Text in Application Catalog tab is not working in Software Center anymore, it just generic Additional information link constantly. Could you fix this so the Link Text also applies to Software Center? (Tested on 1902).

  18. Consitent reboot behaviour

    Right now, the reboot behavior on clients is very inconsistent.
    If you run a available deployment or a required deployment which hasnĀ“t started over the SW-Center, no reboot is forced. The user will just get a reminder to reboot (Upper Picture).

    If a required deployment runs automatically, a reboot will be forced and the timer from client settings starts to run (Lower Picture).

    This behavior is very inconsistent and should get changed.
    If the admin decides that a reboot is required, it should always be forced.
    Or better, make this an option to the deployment of Apps, Updates etc.

  19. Limit the number of times that a user is notified of availabl deployment. The used doesn't need to be notified at every login that they have

    Limit the number of times that a user is notified of available deployment. The used doesn't need to be notified at every login that they have the same software available but they want to see all other notifications.

  20. Make uninstall and repair work better

    Make the uninstall and repair application in software center work with more than 1 deployment type. Because now the uninstall only works if 1 deploymenttype is present in the application.

    The repair option only repairs the first deployment type and then stops, would be beteer that it repairs all deployment types that are in an application or the option to do so.
