  1. Inform a user when an application has been closed by an installing package

    Running 1906 with hotfix.
    When using the option to "Automatically close any running executables you specified..." while deploying a product which needs an application closed, when the deadline is reached the applications are closed, but there is no notification to the user as to why. If in front of their machine, the user will then invariably re-open the application (especially if this is Outlook) which will cause the installation to fail.
    I would suggest that when the application is automatically close, a message box is shown informing the user what's happened which stays on screen until the installation is complete,ā€¦

  3. Visual confirmation policy has been downloaded

    It would be great after initiating a Machine Policy Retrieval & Eval cycle if there were some visual confirmation that policy was downloaded, either a Yes/No or a total number of policies downloaded. The one visual confirmation available is the systray Software Center icon but that is sometimes suppressed depending on the deployment config. Too often people mash that Machine Policy button half a dozen times b/c they think that makes it work faster not realizing there is no policy being downloaded, for whatever reason. This would come in handy during testing as well.

  4. Add Drillthrough to Office 365 Pilot and Health Dashboard

    Would like the ability to drill through to a list of devices in the Office 365 Pilot and Health Dashboard. For example, clicking the Recommended Pilot Devices bar would display the devices.

  5. uninstall deadline not honoured (App-V 4.6 application in this case)

    Bug I think: I deployed the uninstall action for an App-V 4.6 application through SCCM, with a deadline in the year 2099 (to allow leeway for monitoring before and after in my testing), but it ran as soon as it hit.

    Deployed to user, install outside maintenance windows (so I would see it in Software Center without having to wait till after work).

    Inconvenient, not a show-stopper.

  6. Deployment Status Totals

    Add totals to the tabs (Success,In Progress, Error, Requirements Not Met, Unknown) to view how many are in each at a glance.

    Success [7],In Progress [4], Error [20], Requirements Not Met [1], Unknown [43]

  7. Add support for detecting a superseding app when a superseded app is deployed

    It would be nice to have an option NOT to install application A if superseding app B is detected (but not deployed).

    Scenario:
    Let's say the B is being installed via OSD or outside of ConfigMgr. However there is still deployment of A to the collection where machine resides, and ConfigMgr will ultimately install A as well, probably breaking both apps.

  8. Tasksequence Manager can switch in currently running TS installation between MP and CMG

    When a TS Installation is running, and the mobil working User stops the VPN connection to the on prem MP, the SCCM Agent switch to the Internet Mode and connect the CMG. But the currently running Tasksequence runs now in offline mode and gets timeouts on every TS step to reach the MP. Mostly the TS run out of time.

    It would be nice when the TSManager realize when the network was switched as does the sccm agent and switch to the CMG as well.

  9. Include Field for Application Repair in the New Deployment Type Wizard

    It'd be nice if the fields to set application repair commands were configurable during the New Deployment Type wizard, saving you from having to go back in after the fact and set them (or forgetting and not setting them)

  10. 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.

  11. Ability to Update Office 365 Application Deployment

    I've created an Office 365 installer via SCCM but would like the ability to "update" that application deployment instead of having to remake the entire installer deployment. Almost like the ability you have to install updates to your Windows image.

  12. A better way of detecting programs installed in AppData

    recently Microsoft have been using AppData to install applications like OneDrive and Teams, the issue is we can not use the following as a detection method (%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams) as the way SCCM works is it will convert %userprofile% as the service account and not the currently logged in user.

  13. Make version check more flexible in the detection method for Microsoft Store Apps

    When deploying an offline Microsoft Store Apps through SCCM, add an option to consider a version greater or equal to the one in the package to be installed in the detection method.

    This will make SCCM play nicely with the auto-update of modern apps.

  15. Allow for creation of a deployment with type "required" for primary devices, but "available" for non primary devices

    When deploying applications, it would be great to have the option to deploy the application as required to the users primary device, but within the same deployment also allow it to be available when the user logs on to a non-primary device. this will eliminate the option to create separate collections for this, as it is not possible to deploy the same application to a collection twice.

  16. Allow contains in OU requirement in DT

    In a DT, you can currently do a requirement around the Organizational Unit, but it is an exact list of one of or none of. This doesn't work well for a large organization that adds and removes OUs. Allow us instead to do a contains type pattern match as we have naming standards that could be worked against.

  17. Make Dependency Chains combine apps further down the chain if they are the same app

    when looking at App 1 is dependent on App 2,3,4 and 2,3,4 are dependent on 5 it shows weird...

    currently it looks like this:
    1
    |
    1
    / | \
    234
    | | |
    555

    I'd like it to show like this
    1
    |
    1
    / | \
    234
    \ | /
    5

  18. Application replacement options

    Add, please, additional option to the application supersedence/replacement window "Corresponding to conditions". Very often we need to replace one application to another which has different number of deployment types. Superseded application has only one deployment type (x86 as example) but new application has 2 deployment types (x86 and x64) which has global condition based on operating system architecture. With the new option CCM Client will choose a new application where requirements are met.

  20. Phased Deployments: Provide ability to create more than 2 in the wizard

    Phased Deployments: Provide ability to create more than 2 phased deployments in the wizard. Currently you can create 2 phased deployments which is great, but we have 4 separate test groups that we deploy to when testing patches, and software. It would be great to be able to create a phased deployment to each test group and then the final Enterprise systems collection within the same wizard, instead of having to create multiple phased deployments.
