  3. 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.

  4. 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€¦

  5. Installation details

    For installed applications show additional details like date / time installed, date / time available on client, installation duration, install result (SCCM errors more detailed than today, often only error numbers without description, installer exitcode).

  6. 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.

  7. SCCM Client - Start TS before anything else

    When multiple advertisement are deployed on a computer, let's say a TS for a new OS and an apps, if both have deadline and are past due, the apps get installed first. There should be an option in the TS deployment to prevent that. Samething for Windows Update. Right now I,m trying to take a computer from W7 to W10 and since it was offline for the past 3 months, it has started all windows Update and Software Update before starting the TS. But I'm doing a wipe and load of a new OS, don't need to install all this...

  8. Software center Support Remote Connection

    Allow Software Center to accept remote connections so support technician can see exactly what the user is seeing and allow for remote operations.
    -Assist user with why patches failed to install, be able to view error codes
    -Assist user with why an application failed to install, be able to view error codes
    -Be able to initiate Application installs,, Patch Installs, Task sequences

  9. Remove available software from Softwarecenter

    When I request a software or application on a client machine over the application catalog this will apear in the Softwarecenter under 'available software'.

    Sometimes it happens that some users are requesting a software / application form application catalog by accident.

    It would be great if there would be an option to manage this as an administration, like remove this application from softwarecenter (available software) without installing it before.

    Something like remove an explicit software/application under 'available software' from an explicit device.

    Thank you.

  10. 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.

  11. 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. Software Center GUI (filters) as per Company Portal (Categories)

    It would be nice to have the option to tile like in the Company Portal (categories) in the Software Center (filters). This would be of great benefit for multidisciplinary companies or even to segregate departments, giving a much better end user experience.
    I'm not sure there's much use in the SC filter at present, as it defaults to load all, hence nobody would really use the dropdown to select a filtered subset. Example attached.

  15. Display which distribution point is used in software center when downloading/installing software

    Display which distribution point is used in software center when downloading software.
    Show something like downloading from sccmdp01.corp.com when you start an installation. This helps troubleshooting problems with DP's

  16. Software Center - Operating System More Info Shown

    I'd like to have the Descriptions for Task Sequences show up under the TS Name, as an option. (Check Box to enable or not)

    Similar UV.. but different enough: https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/17017867-software-center-include-description-under-opera

    PS.. Task Sequence Icons would be nice.. but that's a different UV.

  17. SCCM Application Approval E-Mail User Manager

    Add either a powershell cmdlet for application approval that allows for a parameter of e-mail to allow administrator to create scheduled function to query users manager through AD, or to add the ability set in the deployment to look up the users manager according to AD - in addition to the default e-mail to the SCCM administrators.

  18. Show more informative status information when installing from software center

    When a user initiates a software deployment via software center, prior to the actual installation, the only status the client will see is "downloading". In scenarios where peer cache/branch cache is enabled, it says "downloading" even though the client is actually still locating a suitable distribution source.

    This is very confusing for the client, as software center will say "downloading (0%)" for quite some time before it falls back to a dedicated distribution point. It gives both the client (and help desk staff who are unfamiliar with the sccm logs) the impression that there is either an issue with networkā€¦

  19. Prevent Countdown Timer from Moving off the edges of the Screen

    We have set policy so that users receive the countdown timer with the HIDE button grayed out. This is to prevent users from clicking Hide, then forgetting about the timer and getting rebooted later in the day.

    Users are now moving the countdown timer window off to the edge of the screen as a way around this. Then they forget about it. Get rebooted and open a ticket with the helpdesk. We have over 60K users, and this does generate a significant # of tickets.

    Is it possible to prevent the window from moving off the edges of the screen?

  20. Display % complete for installation progress

    Add installation progress % to the Software Center. Native Microsoft technologies should be able to report their installation progress such as MSI/MSP/C2R and update installations to give more details in the software center to know the completion status.
