  1. 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€¦

  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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.

  5. 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...

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Software Center maintenance mode

    Occasionally during CB updates or hotfixes users experience issues using software center. We would like to be able to put Software Center into maintenance mode which would display a message in Software Center that it is down for maintenance along with any other details we may want to add.

  12. Make 'All' and 'Required' in Software Center look like buttons

    Even though this is also partially a matter of end-user training, a lot of our users don't seem to realize that the words 'All' and 'Required' are clickable to filter. When telling someone they should select 'All' instead, they select 'All' from the category filter instead of clicking on the word 'All'.

    So just a small UI change to make them more user-intuitive :)

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Per deployment customization control of 'Required software changes...' dialog

    Enable per deployment administrator control of the 'Required software changes...' notification dialog to accommodate the following user experience enhancements to more intuitively inform them about the level of importance (i.e. urgency, severity, etc.), time remaining to deadline, and whether a restart is expected:
    1. Icon indicating importance (e.g. informational, warning, critical, etc.)
    2. Dynamic change (with configurable threshold) of predominate colorization based on time remaining to deadline (e.g. green if deadline > 1 day, red < 1 hour, etc.)
    3. Indication for expectation/probability of restart
    4. Deployment templates for re-using combinations of above options (1-3).

  17. 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

  18. WebApps Can Be Launched from Software Center

    Allow Web Applications to be opened from Software Center without installing them.

    Currently Web Applications "Install" by adding a webpage shortcut to the Programs list. Allow users to launch the shortcut by adding an additional button in Software Center to launch instead of, or in addition to, install.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
