  1. Add URL Markup for Localized Description Text in an Application

    Please allow URL links within the text field for localized description. This way you can include a link to contact the helpdesk or a URL for internal documentation. Particularly, the "mailto" and "href" markup.

  2. Upgrade superseded available application immediately

    Make it possible to automatically upgrade an application that is deployed as available immediately (without having to wait for the maintenencewindow to apply.)

    This was previously the default behaviour, but is no longer possible? Can this be made an option again?

  3. Ability to check if application is running before installing

    Same as we have with the application deployment toolkit in powershell.

    It will be grate to have a check if application is running before installing.

    For ex: We want to update application A.0 . If the application is running user will be asked to close it before installing update A.1 or if not open it will install the update silenty. If the user try to open the application A.0 during the upgrade a pop-up notification will said that the application cannot be open while SCCM is upgrading it.

  4. phased deployment

    For phased deployment, if any application is updated then phased deployment already created for it to be restarted.

  5. Adding relationships for Requirements

    When you create a few requirements for application I would like to have the opportunity to add a relationship between them ('or', 'and', etc.).

  6. Make Application Deployment Status more consistent

    Since 2012 RTM, ConfigMgr has inconsistent experience for application deployment monitoring described in these blog entries:

    @Michael Wray: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Configuration-Manager-Archive/Troubleshooting-In-Console-Monitoring-for-Deployments-in-System/ba-p/273015
    @Umair Khan: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/umairkhan/2014/10/02/the-case-of-the-unexplained-application-deployment-monitoring-reports-which-one-to-rely/

    Basically, we count Application Infrastructure errors in all pie charts both in Monitoring\Deployments Console node and application reports, but we don't have any pre-created way to find failing clients except "Application infrastructure Errors" report.

    It would be good idea to list the assets affected by infra errors in separate deployment monitoring tab, or together with failing DTs in the console. Also it would be nice to modify pre-defined reports to be more consistent and list also affected assetsā€¦

  7. Run Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle from Software Center

    User or support should not need to go to Configuration Manager control panel to run this cycle. I voted for other suggestions to run on forced reboot or logoff. It would also be great to have a user-friendly button in Software Center to run the evaluation.

  8. Allow install and uninstall of applications in Application Group

    The TP 1905 Application Group allows to select multiple applications, but you can only install or uninstall the entire group and not individual applications.

    It would be neat to allow selecting whether those individual apps in the group should be installed or uninstalled. For e.g., in an app group for a specific user profile, I could deploy app1 as install, app2 as uninstall and app3 as install in that order.

  10. Crear colecciones desde Inventoried Sotware

    Actualmente para crear una colecciĆ³n que estĆ© relacionada con una aplicaciĆ³n, es necesario crearla desde Device Collections. Si ya estĆ” creada la consulta que permite identificar las aplicaciones, serĆ­a conveniente hacer uso de esas mismas consultas para crear las colecciones simplemente presionando click izquierdo.

  12. Add uninstall content path to the Create Deployment Type wizard

    Currently, in the New Deployment Type wizard, you can only specify a single content source. Now that we can have separate content source folders for uninstall, we have to create our deployment types without specifying this then edit the deployment type and add the second content folder. Please add the content options from the deployment type properties to the initial wizard.

  13. "Install Software on next reboot" switch for required Deployments

    "Install Software on next reboot" switch for required Deployments

    We have machines in production which are always online and only the Users can initiate a reboot or an Software Installation. It would be cool to have an option to install all required Deployments if the Users initiate a reboot. This would raise the SW-Compliance extemely, because the Users often do not take a look in the SW-Center an click on install.

  14. Detection method comments

    Add a field for adding a note in detection methods. When you have a large list of detections it would be easier to update for changes if I knew what reason I put in for each detection.

  15. Configmgr MSIX deployment with phone experience

    Deploying a new verion of a msix application via Configmgr requires a new deployment.
    Why not change this behavior so it is possible use the same deployment to do update?

    example:
    Application01 version 1 is an msix application, and it is deployed via Configmgr.

    When there is an update available, it is deployed by updating the source directory and content is distributed to the DP's
    then next time a user start Application01 it will be updated.

  16. edit custom requirements

    Once you create a custom requirement, you can then not edit the custom requirement under the Create Deployment Wizard type. We should have an edit button to edit the custom requirement you created.

  20. Deployments in a Task Sequence

    Provide a task sequence step to install all targeted applications, programs and software updates.
    Where imaging a PC is done on a limited time it would be beneficial to install all applications.
    Similar to this.
