  1. For software that requires approval, also make the dialog box to submit reason require data.

    Currently the dialog box does not require data, so users will just hit submith with typing anything.

  2. Show OSD in Software Center only to admin users

    I want to hide the OSD Tasksequence to normal users. Because we do not want, that every single student is able to install an OS via Softwarecenter, only admin users should be able to deploy the OS

  3. Add ability to define "Estimated Time" for Classic Packages

    The program of a classic package does not allow for configuration of the "estimated time"; however, Software Center always shows this field as "Not specified". Ideally, the estimated time could be configured.

  4. Reduce the size of the icons in Software Center

    Everything in Software Center is too large and the navigation menus take up too much space making it worse. On a 1080p display it's very difficult to see more then a couple rows making it difficult to search through the apps.

  5. Windows Update Status

    Hi,

    it would be helpful, if there were more infos in the softwarecenter about the current window update status of the device. At the moment it is not visible for the user, if the device is up to date, are there updates missing or when were the last update installation.
    also nice would be a hint if there is a pending reboot to finalize an update isntallation.

  6. 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 clientā€¦

  7. Software Center Command Line Switch Addition

    Software Center Command Line Switch Addition

    It is not currently possible to choose between the All and Upcoming views on the Installation status page in Software Center via command line.

    We would love to have a programmatic call the Upcoming view for end users on their maintenance window day. This way, we can (forcibly but kindly) inform people of what's about to happen to their device(s).

    This is what it might look like: "C:\WINDOWS\CCM\ClientUX\SCClient.exe" softwarecenter:Page=InstallationStatus FilterType=0 SortType=6 View=Upcoming" <-- The "View" switch is the addition.

    P.S. Long live Banco de Gaia!

  8. Add available software to Windows Search

    It would be great if Software Center was indexed and Windows Search would give the option to install software available in Software Center.

    Like I could search in Start for "Microsoft Teams" and if it was in my available software it would give a link to open Software Center and install it

  9. 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.

  10. Bring back Software Center Command line arguments

    In SCCM 2012 R2 you could start software center with a specific start page using then command line arguments "StartPage" and "FilterType". We relied on those when triggering software center from our internal Tools that our users were familiar with. Please bring them back again.

  11. Allow Multiple Deployments to be installed in a sequence

    Currently SCCM is now allowing users to select multiple available packages and install them. But SCCM does not install in the order they are selected. Would be nice feature to allow this feature. This would lower the need for task sequences in some occasions. Allowing the end user to select the installation of the packages.

  12. The text in Software Center is so small

    I get questions about why the text in Software Center is so small and difficult to read. Is it possible to make the text larger and maybe in black?

  13. 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.

  14. Software Center - Operating Systems: Add Link to TS Deployments

    In the Operating Systems Tab, please add the "Link" ability to a Task Sequence. We'd like to send communications, or create Toast Notifications that can directly launch the Software Center to a specific Task Sequence Deployment.

  15. 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.

  17. feature Packs in own section

    In Software Center, It would be nice if Feature Packs were in their own section in Software Center similar to Operating System Section so that users will know that these installations will require more attention and time to install than normal software updates.

  18. Please fix the Install Behaviour client notification. The notifications do not work until you go into Software Centre and hit retry.

    Would be nice if the install notifications alerted the machines user as soon as the application is deployed. instead the user has to go into Software Centre and his retry, then the message shows. Not ideal when sending patches and you have them hidden so you don't annoy users. It seams that if you show all notifications this works, but is not ideal. I would like to see that install behaviour notifications work, irrespective of the user notification setting.

  20. Add option to only show software in Software Centre that is on the local DP

    Currently if a client is in a boundary where the local DP does not have the source files the application is still listed as available however it fails to install, it would be great to have a setting for Administrators to be able to limit the Software Centre to only show applications that are available within that boundary.
