  1. Allow users to plan any deployment with a time picker

    Available, required, doesn't matter.
    Give users a "Plan" button, like we have with required deployments, and allow them to pick a time, and allow them to reboot after the install is done.
    Right now, the "Plan" button is only present on Required deployments with a deadline.
    Right now, the "Restart automatically my computer if needed" checkbox is only present if you choose "Outside my business hours".

    Yes, this is a three-for-one. Inspired by Brian Dam's tweet https://twitter.com/bdam555/status/1220469791284219904

    Use case 1: User has been instructed to install an available application, but is busy working. User plans the install for 11:30, where…

  2. Speed up Software Centre searches by returning user results first

    Currently Software Centre searches the computer WMI for applications to install then uses the MP to get user results.

    User results are returned instantly where as WMI can take a long time on slower computers.
    If the user results were returned first it would be a better experience.

  3. Allow users to clear "new software is available" toast message

    The "new software is available" toast message is annoying to users who have already checked Software Center and seen that there are no new applications, or that the new applications are ones they don't need or want to install.


    1. The toast message should align with the state displayed in the Software Center. From the SCNotify logs I can see SCCM thinks there is now software available, but the same packages are not marked as new in Software Center.

    2. Users should be able to clear the notifications and not see them again until or unless new software is actually available. This…

  4. allow custom tabs ms-windows-store://pdp additionally to http://

    can you please allow ms-windows-store://pdp as a link in the custom tabs? now it is only allowed to have http:// and https:// links as a custom tab.
    If you allow this, we can open the Store App in the Software Center, as a single point of app/application selection/install for the Endusers.

  7. Allow changing Boolean logic on search Criteria in SCCM

    Allow selection of Boolean logic in search criteria. Currently it automatically uses OR for second items when I require AND. Alternately, let us add multiple items in a criteria eg. Title 'Does not contain': Server 8.1 SQL would exclude any item that had ANY of those words in it.

  8. Allow end users to run "reuseable" scripts via software center

    Extend script functionality to allow an end user to run a script on-demand via the software center. This allows for admins to publish user driven maintenance tasks that can be used over and over. This functionality is available in other configuration management software such as JAMF for Mac management.

    Admin would deploy a script, script shows up in software center. User can run the script as many times as they need, any time. Restrictions could be configurable so admins can specify how often they can run the script. Once the script is ran, it remains available forever or until restricted…

  9. 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).

  10. Import and Export within Exclusion Settings for Antimalware Policies

    Import and Export within Exclusion Settings for Antimalware Policies for people moving over from other vendors would be so helpful. The option to sort alphabetically also would be a good option. Cut and paste option is poor currently due to size limitations.

  11. Optional buttons in Softwarecenter

    Create optional buttons at Application and Update section in Softwarecenter to run deployed applications or update task in softwarecenter.
    Would be much easier to tell people update the deployed apps or windows updates

  13. 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.

  14. Ability to customize the color of the loading bar in software center

    When you customize the color scheme for Software center in client settings, it does not change the loading bar directly underneath the logo for software center. Currently the default color is green.

  16. Dynamic button change based on selection for when changes are applied in 'Required software changes…' dialog

    To verify for the user that the option they have chosen for when changes will be applied to their system ('Right now (recommended)', 'Outside my business hours', or 'Snooze and remind me:'), customization of the confirmation button would be ideal, for example:
    • If 'Right now (recommended)' is selected, the button text would read 'Install'
    • If 'Outside my business hours' is selected, the button text would read 'After Hours'
    • If ''Snooze and remind me:' is selected, the button text would read 'Snooze'
    • If 'Restart my computer automatically if selected, the button color changes

  17. Support for customization of notification text in 'Required software changes…' dialog

    The current 'Required software changes…' dialog only informs the user that 'The change will be applied after <deadline date> at <deadline time>, or you can apply the changes:…'. It would more empower the user for making a smarter decision when choosing to apply changes 'Right now (recommended)', 'Outside my business hours', or 'Snooze and remind me:' if the following additional information is provided on a per deployment basis:
    1. Estimated install time
    2. Indication of what apps will close
    3. Indication if a restart is expected
    4. Customization of notification text (i.e. ability for administrator to specify exact wording)

  18. Default expansion of 'More information' section in 'Required software changes…' dialog

    By default, the 'More information' section in the 'Required software changes…' dialog, that details what software specifically will be changed, is obstructed from the user’s view because it is collapsed. To see details of the affected software, the user must manually click the caret which is not apparent to many.

    Provide a client policy setting that enables the expansion of the 'More information' section in the 'Required software changes…' dialog as a default.
