  1. 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.

  2. App Approval - Include User ā€œcommentsā€ 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 ā€œcommentā€ in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a ā€œcostā€ and ā€œbilling codeā€ field to the app request will enable the app procurement lifecycle to more streamlined.

  3. 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 forā€¦

  6. 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    * check the deployment after the fact and discover that a check box of ''Automatically upgrade any superceded versions of this application' has now appeared in the deployment, and is forced checked.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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 runningā€¦

    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.

  11. 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 soā€¦

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. chained installation of Applications

    We have certain applications which needs to be installed together. Like 30 to 40 MSi files related to same application. One of the MSI files is main application and rest of them have to be installed in a sequence. Currently we can do this sequence installation by creating dependencies of application to another application and thus creating a chain. But if anyone application fails to install in the chain,remaiinign applications fail to install. It also not possible to see in the GUI of software center to check which application failed. We have to go to log files to know this.

  15. Icons and cosmetics for applications

    During the Create Application Wizard on Application Catalog step there is possibility to add some beautiful icon. BUT! The icon (*.ico) size is limited to 250x250. Could you make it possible to add an icon file with picture size at least 256x256 (which is quite common size for pictures in *.ico files)? Another thing as well, the icons in SCCM Applications/Packages list (Software Library-Overview-Application Management-Applications). They look all the same! Could you make them more attractive, say, the way they look in Application Catalog? Otherwise, whats the point in Icon column (which appears, by the way, as a default columnsā€¦

  16. Ring based deployment model in Application Deployment? It would be helpful if we have a similar to Windows 10

    It would be good if we are able to have a ring based model for Application Deployment and management as we have for Windows 10 CB rollout with early adopters ring, Pilot ring, Production ring . This will help a lot as we are seeing the benefit of the ring model in Windows 10 Deployment.

  17. Support enabling App-V for Windows 10 Anniversary edition

    Now that App-V is included, it would be good if there was a way to automatically enable App-V in anniversary edition if an App-V application is deployed, or allow configuration using client settings

  19. Application Deployment Types - Windows Server 2016 OS choice

    SCCM currently doesn't list Windows Server 2016 as an OS choice from within "Deployment Types" and more specifically at the "Requirements" tab when Operating System is used as a prerequisite. This is a must have in order to be able to target specific applications and deployments only over Windows Server 2016 instances.

    At this time even SCCM 1607 doesn't support this as a choice.

  20. Software Center - Highlight relevant item after user clicks "new software is available" notification

    Scenario:
    - End user receives a "new software is available notification' (balloon/toast)
    - End user clicks the notification
    - Software Center opens and shows the "Applications" tab

    There is no indication which is the new item where the notification refers too. The user needs to look for any new items in a potentially large list.

    It would be nice if the relevant item would be highlighted and/or (temporarily) be listed somewhere on top of the list.
