  1. Add "Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops" in the “Operating system” of requirements as an option”

    The provided Application Model Operation System Conditions for Windows 10 versions are limited in scope. Currently the Operator options for Windows 10 are two choices.

    Windows 10 (Select This to get the two below)
    All Windows 10 (ARM64)

  2. application groups reverse/control uninstall order

    In Configuration Manager 1910 a user can uninstall an "app group" in Software Center if it is deployed as available. This is great! However the uninstall order is the same as the install order. we need the following in the uninstall space:
    -Reverse order of uninstall
    -Control if a application should be left instead of removed, could be needed in other app group.
    -Control the order if necessary

    in the #configmgr 2002 production release (now availabe) uninstall order of app groups is reversed

  3. Deploy Application Groups to Users

    The 1906 application group feature only allows you to deploy application groups to devices. Please extend this feature to enable application groups for user deployments as well.

  4. Remove the need for App Catalog, by providing all functionality in Software Center

    Currently, some functionality is only available in the application catalog, and not in software center. Make it so everything can be done in software center, so we can remove application catalog... and Silverlight... and local site security configurations.

    This is completed in the soon to be released #SCCM 1902.

  5. App Approval - Include User “comments” in Email

    The new App Approval feature in 1810 is looking great. So we can build on integration with other services and service desk software it would be handy to include the users “comment” in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a “cost” and “billing code” field to the app request will enable the app procurement lifecycle to more streamlined.

  7. Prevent Cache Limit from Causing Application Deployment Failure

    Once the cache has been filled all subsequent application deployments fail until the cache self-cleans. In CAS.log you see that the client is refusing to download the content because the cache, not the actual disk, is full.

    This strikes me as a non-optimal design choice if the goal is to successfully install applications. If I want to install an application I do not want it to fail because of an artificial limit that until very recently was set at the time of client install. Most of the time the cache clears in 24 hours and there's no problem but there…

  8. Give us an option for Appx Provisioning Deployment

    ConfigMgr supports .appx deployment, but sometimes we want these on every user that signs into the machine. These machines may be on metered connections and not have a stable connection at the time to redownload the appx file. DISM lets us do this by hand and calls it provisioning. This is a long and complicated process when deploying to 1000's of machines.

    Currently SCCM pushed Windows Modern Applications can only installed into the current users profile even if the deployment is targeted at the machine.

    Can we get the option in SCCM for if we want the APPX provisioned for…

    #SCCM 1810 now has more powerful email options (including approvals) for requested software

  11. Fix Supercedence behavior

    This is definitely in the catagory of a bug or design change.

    Consider this scenario:
    * app A deployed to a number of machines via required deployment
    * app a Version 2.0 comes out, we create a supersedence for the old app
    * deploy Version 2.0 to a small collection with an 'Available' Deployment
    * witness in horror as machines automatically begin applying the updated version
    * check the deployment after the fact and discover that a check box of ''Automatically upgrade any superceded versions of this application' has now appeared in the deployment, and is forced checked.

    No where…

  12. Qucik Deployment for a single application to a single machine

    I'd like to be able to do a quick deployment to a single machine. Similar to how EMCO Remote installer and PDQ Deploy works. I right-click on the target machine and click on install. I guess this would be similar to installing the ConfigMgr Client by right-clicking on a machine.

  13. Increase max length of Package/Program Command Line

    The max is currently 260 characters for a package/program command line. This means a lot of things that could be a single powershell or cmd.exe line end up needing content for a .ps1 or .cmd file. Please increase the max to 2048-ish characters so more can get done in one line without content.

  14. Application approval for a DEVICE collection

    Currently Configmgr supports Administrative approval for an application only on USER collections. I'd like it to also support this on DEVICE collections. We base our deployments on Devices rather than users. I would like some kind of approval process for certain applications.

  15. Check for running .exe, give the User the option to postpone

    It would be nice to have an integrated solution for that. I would like to have the option to add the programs ".exe" names to the application in sccm. during deployment, if the .exe is currently running, it should ask the user to close it or give the options:
    - postpone deployment
    - close the application and start update immediatly

    if the .exe is not running, it should just go ahead and install it without asking.

    and also a silent version of this: check if the .exe is currently running, if no -> go ahead and install. if it's running…

    There are many comments on this feedback item. We’ve read over them many times while building this feature and feel that we’ve hit the core functionality for this request in the 1702 release and so today we are marking this feedback item as complete.

    We look forward to all of your passionate commentary, and votes, on the parts of this feedback that aren’t included in the current release to help us decide where to focus our efforts next.

    Details can be found here https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2017/03/26/now-available-update-1702-for-system-center-configuration-manager/.

    As always, thank you for your passionate support and feedback.

  16. Option to uninstall an application when a user or device falls out of scope of the collection

    This is a buggy, Would we like the option to have ' Uninstall Application when Resource falls out of scope of this collection' when an application is deployed to a collection, this would save us having to create 2 collections ( install and uninstall) and to deployments. This would save SO much time and reduce the complicity of application management.

  17. Software Center: Add Approval Requests in the application details.

    Based on the suggestion from Mark Silvey in the "Combine Software Center and Application Catalog into a Single application" thread, I decided to submit this idea on its own.

    Now, with the updated Software Center, the only thing not in Software Center is the ability to do Approval Requests, and that's what's keeping me back from deploying applications that take advantage of Approval Requests.
    I've told my users in the past that ConfigMgr is a split user experience, now I have to tell them you have to use the web portal for the one tiny purpose of approval. We're so…

  18. Force Reinstall of Application

    Many customers want to be able to force a reinstallation of an application. this deployment should ignore all detection rules and just install the application again.
    At the moment this is not possible.

  19. Allow interaction with the user when installing applications as System

    Many places like to give users custom UIs when an application is being installed. It would be nice to be able to prompt the user for input or give them information without losing the ability to add that application to a task sequence.

  20. Applications - Provide a means to have other applications run after an application is installed.

    There is the ability to specify dependencies for Applications, however the ability to run another Application POST install would be awesome. Often when an application is installed there is a post configuration task that needs to run.
