  1. Software Center: Provide a console setting to remove the "Application Catalog" link from Software Center

    Admins should be able to disable or remove the link to Application Catalog, from an end user viewpoint, we are not using the App Catalog, just Software Center. Since we’re using a 3rd party Shopping instance as well, it would be good to have a configurable option to hide Application Catalogue.

  6. Allow us to disable, hide or edit the "Confirm that you want to install a new operating system on your computer" popup

    Wouldn't it make a lot of sense to be able to disable the "Confirm that you want to install a new operating system on your computer" prompt that you see when you launch an OSD task sequence in Windows.

    Right now you cannot change this behaviour, in addition you cannot even customize the text.

    What I'd like to see is the following (particularly with the Windows 10 Upgrade task sequence being used within Windows.)

    * ability to DISABLE this popup via the deploy ts wizard
    * ability to EDIT the popup's text to something more 'fitting' (think about Upgrade...)

    and…

  7. 64-bit PowerShell cmdlets

    I use PowerShell for many products from Microsoft and other vendors. Of them all, the SCCM cmdlets are the only ones that are available only in 32-bit. So I have to open a separate PowerShell instance when I want to run SCCM commands. Or sometimes I am writing a script that runs 64-bit commands for other products, then I must have the script open a special 32-bit Powershell instance for the SCCM commands.

  8. Please improve accessibility of SCCM for blind system administrators.

    SCCM 2005 was very accessible to system administrators who are blind. However, Versions after this from 2008 on are not usable. This has resulted in any system administrator who is blind who requires access to SCCM to perform his or her duties to find alternative responsibilities. Up to 2013 I happily worked as a system administrator. I loved this part of the IT industry. However, because so much of my job revolved around using SCCM I had no choice but to leave and refocus my efferts somewhere else. I ask Microsoft to redouble your committment to accessibility to include improving…

  9. Display active console users

    I would like to send a message to all users who have the admin console open. Just a pop-up that warns them of a reboot, or if I need to send out a custom message to all active sessions.

    I would like to also be able to see on the Administrations overview page how many Admin Consoles are opened up and connected to the site, and the user name. At the CAS level see all sessions if their are multiple primary servers.

  10. Software Center: Add the ability to customize Software Center

    Create a Software Center Builder similar to the Admin Console Builder application. The ability to customize the Software Center is a frequent ask from customers and this would provide the ability to customize elements to improve end user usability, such as hiding elements that may confuse customers.

    This capability is available in the 1710 release of Configuration Manager. More details available here https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2017/11/20/now-available-update-1710-for-system-center-configuration-manager/. There are a lot of different suggestions on this one. This work represents just a few:

    1. Ability to hide/show tabs
    2.Company name/Logo/Color separate from Intune
    3. Framework to add additional customizations (more quickly) in future releases based on feedback.

    If your particular comment/request is not one of these please give us the feedback through a new suggestion. We’re very interested in seeing the feedback.

    Thanks!

  11. WinPE PeerCaching - Applications

    Add the ability to cache Applications via WinPE PeerCaching. This would allow admins to fully pre-populate a location with content: This would be huge, and a game changer for a lot of organizations that don't own a 3rd party solution.

    The WinPE PeerCaching, as it is now, works great, for the content it can do. Adding Applications would make this a complete solution, instead of a stop gap to a 3rd party solution.

  14. Add tile vs list display option on the SW Center Applications tab.

    Currently entries in the Applications tab in Software Center are displayed in tile mode. This is not practical when having a lot of entries.

    It would be good to have an option to switch between a list view and the current tile view.

  15. Request to add support for Distribution Point Maintenance mode

    Situations where maintenance mode is useful/needed:
    1. When the system (hardware) is in transit from the location where it was installed to the site where it is to be used in production.
    2. When the system is down for other maintenance (software patching and updates, OS configuration changes, hardware reconfiguration and other external factors causing planned or unplanned downtime).
    The above outlined method for installing new DPs to remote locations is widely used for various reasons (For example to have a dedicated team at one location install machine and to avoid having to copy a large content library across WAN…

  16. Add missing InstallationBehaviourType parameter to new DeploymentType cmdlets in SCCM Powershell Cmdlets.

    This goes for all new Add/Set-CM*DeploymentType but for my example, I'll refer to Add-CMScriptDeployment.

    An example below is my generic Script Deployment Type.

    Add-CMScriptDeploymentType `
    -ApplicationName "$PublicName" `
    -DeploymentTypeName "$AppName Client" `
    -ContentLocation "$AppLocation" `
    -InstallCommand "$InstallStr" `
    -UninstallCommand "msiexec /x $MSICode /qn" `
    -MaximumRuntimeMins 720 `
    -LogonRequirementType WhereOrNotUserLoggedOn `
    -UserInteractionMode Hidden `
    -ProductCode
    -ScriptLanguage PowerShell `
    -ScriptText $scriptDetect

    When this is run, the DT is created with the Installation Behaviour set to the default value of "Install for system if resource is device; otherwise install for user"

    The previous version of this cmdlet - Add-CMDeploymentType had the parameter available…

  17. Powershell cmdlet to download all software updates in a Software Update Group

    There are Powershell cmdlets to create software update groups and to add software updates to a specific software update group but no cmdlet to download all the updates in a software group - this has to be done manually

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. SCEP: Option for admins to turn off scanning of Network Drives without adding exclusions

    I suggest a optional check box to disable the scanning in real-time of files on network drives. Other AV products have such functionality. This would be simpler and more fool proof than adding all network drives a company might have to their exclusion lists.
