  1. Make ConfigMgr work with Autopilot and Enrollment Status Page (ESP)

    When deploying a device using Autopilot, the Enrollment Status Page (ESP) is used to prevent access to the desktop until the device provisioning tasks are complete. But ConfigMgr doesn't integrate with the ESP, so there's no way to wait for packages, apps, or task sequences - the user doesn't know when the process is done. Add that integration.

  2. Allow custom icons in software center for Task Sequences

    Split this item from a bigger umbrella item.
    This is to specify an icon per App Task Sequence in the Software Center.

  3. Add keyboard layout settings in the Apply Windows Settings step

    I would like you to add the keyboard layout setting in the Apply Windows Settings step.
    Please add it as shown in the screenshot below.
    Currently, keyboard layout settings are manually added to the registry within the Task Sequence.

    Command line:
    cmd.exe /c reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "LayerDriver JPN" /t REG_SZ /d kbd106.dll & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardIdentifier" /t REG_SZ /d PCAT_106KEY & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardSubtype" /t REG_DWORD /d 2 & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardType" /t REG_DWORD /d 7

  4. GitHub integration for Task Sequence Changes

    Having version control for Task Sequences would be invaluable.

    If we could link a GitHub account we could easily monitor Task Sequence changes either in Github or SCCM. The ability to roll versions with Administrator approval (similar to publishing scripts) would be ideal.

    Expanding on this idea more, highlighting additions/edits/deletes within the Task Sequence dialog would be the icing on the cake.

  5. allow export all task sequences or folder of task sequences

    We have many task sequences, sorted into folders for multiple users, when it comes to archiving them, it's tedious, we'd like to archive multiple task sequences by user (or by folder), this would be great, right now you have to export one task sequence at a time which is tedious.

  6. OSUninstall - Make ConfigMgr Aware of going back to previous builds

    Please Make CM aware if an OSUninstall (Reverting to previous Build) has happened, so it can heal itself into a functional state. Currently if you perform an OSUninstall from say 1809 to 1709, after you've upgraded originally to 1809 using a CM Task Sequence, the CM Client is non-functional.
    Client is in Provisioning Mode, Services are disabled, and once you fix that, it thinks it's int he middle of the Task Sequence and shows the Upgrade TS "Installing", so then you need to clear that out.

    Please make OSUninstall & CM Play Nice together, so we can offer users theā€¦

  7. Administration service URL Task Sequence variable

    With the new great possibilites using the Administration Service it would be great to have a Built In task sequence variable with the URL to the SMS Provider(s) so we can easily call that in our OSD Powershell scripts during OSD

  8. pre-cache content and packages

    Pre-caching content for a task sequence is great, but we do not use driver packages for installing drivers in a task sequence. We use normal packages and the download package content step. This is true for in-place upgrades as well. As it works right now, when running an upgrade task sequence, the client downloads all of the packages for drivers, regardless of whether they are needed for that particular model. It would be nice to have a way to specify which package containing drivers gets cached for a particular model.

  9. Conditions Library for Task Sequence Editor

    We often find ourselves duplicating conditions in Task Sequences. The ability to copy/paste/move conditions in TP 1908 is excellent but I would suggest we could go one step further.

    To have a conditions library where we could select custom - predefined conditions would be excellent. We should be able to add/edit/delete our own predefined conditions.

  10. monitor the ConfigMgr PXE Responder Service

    I would like a way to monitor the ConfigMgr PXE Responder Service when an error occurs. For instance, when starting an osdeploy and the bootimage fail to load with error 0xC0000001, the smspxe.log simply stops its output, not generating any error. With the WDS-service, this error was easily detected in the eventlog.

  11. Install Third Party Software Updates during TS Install Software Updates step

    Currently (v1806 or later) Third Party Software Updates are not being installed during the Install Software Updates step in a Task Sequence.

    Ideally third party software updates should be installed just like regular updates during the Task Sequence. A machine should be fully patched (secure and end-user ready) when it leaves the deployment bench.

  12. Have the console alert when the task sequence size is reached

    The task sequence has a 32MB size limit for all policy. But for some reason they are actually limited to 16MB. But the Product Group is aware of the problem. I know they are working on fixing the 16MB limit.

    This will help us troubleshoot and determine when the task sequence has reached this size.

  13. Bitlocker Network Unlock with WDS-less PXE

    With Bitlocker Network Unlock, a WDS server can automatically unlock your bitlockered device without requiring the user typing the PIN at boot. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/information-protection/bitlocker/bitlocker-how-to-enable-network-unlock).
    As we all go forward using the SCCM WDS-less PXE-provider instead of WDS, it would be a good idea, if it supported Bitlocker Network Unlock, too.

  14. Add application group in task sequense

    It would be great if the created application groups can be added in a task sequence.

    Instead of having long lists in a task sequense you could manage default apps in the application groups

  15. Store output of run command line to TSEnv with "RunAsUser".

    Running a step as a user prevents you from using the TSEnvironment in order to store any data returned.

    The step could be anything, like getting a byte array of a certificate, ad-groups of the computer or primary user or as in this example, getting the TPM OwnerAuth from MBAM.

    I would rather store it directly in the TSEnv instead of in a temporary file and run another script to read the file just to be able to use the password, as a variable, from a ā€œRun commandlineā€-step.

    The only other workaround Iā€™ve found this far is running the stepā€¦

  16. Support for Windows 10 cloud recovery

    The Spring 2020 version (20H1) of Windows 10 will supposedly have a "cloud recovery" feature that can download an image from Microsoft to repair a Windows 10 installation. It would be great if we could customize this with ConfigMgr so a repair will grab an image of our choosing from CM without going out to Microsoft.

  18. Task Sequence(Windows 10 1903) progress hidden with screen stuck on screen ā€œJust a momentā€¦ā€

    While Running Task Sequence to deploye custom image for Windows 10 version 1903, task Sequence doesn't show any progress bar in Full OS Mode.

    Task Sequence progress bar works fine until WinPE Phase which includes image applying and download of "Setup Windows and configmgr". Right after the reboot when we are expecting to start Full OS phase starting with SCCM Client installation, there is blue screen shown with message "Just a moment..." till the time all the all the steps of task sequence completes successfully.

    This doesn't bring a good customer experience.

  20. Run Task Sequence - Add Set Variable Options on Step

    I'd like the option to set Variables on the Run Task Sequence Step itself. Often times I need to pass variables into the Task Sequence, which will be different based on which Parent TS is calling the Task Sequence "Module".

    Currently I have to have a Set TS Variable Step right before I call the Sub Task Sequence so the Sub TS knows which steps to run, or how to run them.
