  1. Software Center: Multiuser view for Deployed Apps

    On the Software Center when you Install the CM-Agent on a Server, it is possible that two Users have a RDP Session open, the first Logged in User can see Deployed Apps in the SW-Center, the second User can see Deployed Apps only when the first User Logs off or disconnect his session.
    When you have Patch Deployment, every logged in User can see all Patch-Deployments.
    It would be nice to have that also for App-Deployment.

  2. Software Center: Add support for multiple category filtering.

    the new Software Center (v1511) should have an option to filter per category (or multiple), like you have on the app catalog website today

  3. Hide software center from some users, availible to others

    Provide a security group based method to hide software center from showing in the start menu. For example, domain users would not even see it in the start menu, but administrators would. The /ExcludeFeatures is a step in the right direction, but overkill for some customers who still want admins to have access.

  4. remove the hide button from computer restart Dialog that user cannot close

    When using the client settings - computer Restart - display a dialog box the user cannot close... with a countdown interval , the dialog displayed show a hidden button that didn't work.
    If people cannot hide the dialog, then why not 'hide' the hide button ? That button creates expectations that are not met, and thus frustration.

  5. Hide Task Sequence deployments

    When deploying an application or program via a task sequence, there is no way to hide it in software center.

  7. Realtime health info of client via Software Center

    This will help the 1st line support to gather more client information without having to contact 2nd line specialists, and possibly solve more incidents on their own.

    The Software Center, when launched, should be able to read and display client status information and connectivity with server in a simplified UI, understandable to the Service Desk employees/ 1st line support.

    This can include Policy evaluation status, connectivity with management point, certificate status, app-evaluation status, etc

  9. Software Center showing apps that failed or no longer advertised

    Software Center showing apps that failed or no longer advertised, when apps fail still show up as Available Software, could we get another category (Failed Installs) that doesn't keep popping up and reminding users. Put text field somewhere next to "Installed Software"

  10. Catalog / Software Center should be usable by the blind

    Screen reading assistants can't parse the app catalog - it just says "Silverlight" over and over. This isn't acceptable - web pages need to be usable by the blind.

  11. Hightlight the currently installing package/application in Software Center

    When a user chooses to install a package from software center, the UI changes focus to the "Installation Status" tab, but currently installing package is often not the highlighted item. This has been very confusing for users as they think the highlighted item is the one being installed. Only after looking closer do they notice the status column.

  12. Simplifiy and increase visibility of the system tray icons

    The system tray icons for Software Center and Software Updates are too small for most users to decipher. Most users cannot tell that the system tray icon for pending software is a package with a green or red asterisk--there us just too much detail and the asterisk it too small. Even on a desktop monitor we cannot tell what the icon is, but on a high resolution laptop, you need a magnifying glass. Please simplify the icons and make to color coded portion most of the icon.

  13. Suspend Software Center activities when in PowerPoint presentation mode

    Currently, there exists a setting in Software Center to "suspend Software Center activities when my computer is in presentation mode." Users don't have any idea what Windows Presentation Mode is. Ideally, the setting would stop Software Center activities when PowerPoint is running a presentation. That is often when you'd want to stop Software Center from installing something anyway.
