  1. Ability to customize Application catalog

    It would be very nice and useful for many customers to have the ability to customize the application catalog site in terms of custom backgrounds/icons or page layout.

  2. Add "Approval" column to the new Software Center

    While I do like the new Software Center, I'd like to see "Approval Yes/No" directly in the application list again, like with the old one.
    With the new one, users can only determine if an approval might be required by actually selecting an entry, that's a setback to before.

  3. Software Center: Add Ability to Launch the Application

    Would like to have the ability for the end user to not just install an available deployment, but also launch it there. The way I envision this happening is once the user has installed an available deployment, the "Install" button would change to a "Launch" button, and the Uninstall button would be perhaps a separate button, etc., or perhaps even the icon of the application could be used to launch it and the Install/Uninstall behavior could remain the same.

    The benefit of this would be (1) if you removed the start menu or other entry points to the application and…

  4. Software Center: Include "Description" under Operating System menu

    Include "description" under Operations Systems menu in Software Center instead of Publisher as mostly we deploy Windows OS from Microsoft.

  5. Company Portal Customization

    I have a customer that, besides the new features in the Software Center, needs to use the Company Portal to all the +6000 users. The question here is the lack of customization. They want to be able to customize:


    1. The two pictures that appear in the Company Portal

    2. The color Schema for the tiles in the main page of company portal

    3. The Language of the App (that can be done changing the OS language).

    They are making a great an d big investment in the new images to their users and are using a clean desktop with clean apps, and…

  6. Software Center icon on desktop

    I would love the ability to put the Software Center icon on the desktop instead of burying it in the Start menu. That way my users have a quick and easy way to get to it. Maybe there's already a way to do it?

  7. Software center - Drop down lists

    I would be nice to have the possibility to add drop down list in the Software Center to allow the user to select for example witch application language he would like to install. This would be useful for large organization that have to deal with many languages.

  8. Software Center : Tooltip with the description of the application

    Currently the message that appears when a cursor is positioned over an icon (tooltip), is the "application name" in Software Center
    Instead of that, i would like to see in the tooltip the "application description".

  9. Retain users settings in Software Center. i.e. Business Hours, after client upgrade.

    When ever the client is upgraded our users have to reset their Business Hours in Software Center. This is extremely difficult in a 60000+ environment to get the communication out. Why can't the users settings in the client upgrade process be retained?

  10. Software Center to better differentiate between user and machine targeted applications

    The new software center is integrating with the application catalog.
    As a result, when an end user opens his software center, new required applications will get lost in the long list of other items that are already made available.
    Suggestion is to create a new item called "Software offerings" or "Software Catalog", and have that lower on the left-pane list.
    The application tab on top should only show required software

    I would like the start menu shortcut for software center on POSReady 2009 to work. We have POSReady 2009, which I believe is supported, and the start menu .lnk for the Software Center shortcut is not working due to "softwarecenter:" being the target in the shortcut. When you try to launch software center from the shortcut, we receive the following error: "Unable to open this Internet Shortcut. The protocol "softwarecenter" does not have a registered program." I don't believe there is a "softwarecenter" file type. :)

  12. Client Notification Balloon\Toast when closed without selecting anything by clicking 'X' on the dialoge box. Notification stops coming

    When we deploy any application with deadline, depending on the client setting. it start giving notification to the end user ( eg every 15 min when 1 hour is left for deadline). In this situation if end user click on the notification and then just simply close it without selecting any of the option like "Remind me Later" or any other available option. Simply closing it with click on "X" on the upper right corner. Notification stops coming until the deadline is reached.

    Issue was reported a BUG:
    https://connect.microsoft.com/ConfigurationManagervnext/Feedback/Details/2688616
    However closed as By Design

    This is certainly a user experience…

  14. Enable management of visibility of client UI notification area (system tray) ConfigMgr-specific notifications

    The default per-user setting in Windows (Vista, 7, 8.x, 10) is to automatically hide notification area (i.e. SysTray) icons of all but for a few system (native to Windows) notifications. This means that Software Center and SCEP notifications are hidden from view (they are only viewable in the 'overflow' area). These notifications are essential to providing the end-user with timely information about the status of management activities on their system - yet most end-users miss them because of unfamiliarity with how these notifications are hidden - which results in a less than ideal user experience.

    ConfigMgr should provide a client…

  16. Software Center: Log-File view Button

    it would be **** to have a Button in the "new" Software center to open a log-file with a Summary of the last steps that are run on a system, like for a SW installation, in a end-User readable context.
    example:
    SW Policy received
    SW downloaded success
    SW install started
    SW install success (or return code 3016)
    SW has a reboot pending
    etc.

  17. Add a Date Modified for each app to be added as a column in Software Center installation status

    Users are accustomed to seeing “Last Run Time” in RAP and it was easy to sort by that column to see apps installed by date. The “Date Modified” appears to be the “last run time” in Software Center but we have to click on each app in the Installation Status tab to see the date modified info.

  18. Allow user messaging

    It would be nice to have a ability to show custom messages to inform the user that a software installation is in progress and the computer must not be restarted or disconnect from the network.
    Something similar to outlook notifications.
    This should be specific for each package/application; and it should be available at least at begin/end of installation (or even in case of error)

  20. Make "Terms and Conditions" available to all users via Software Center

    and not just for Intune-Users.
    Then, make it possible to make some deployments of software dependant to the acceptance.
