  2. Be able to specify the deployment type when pushing applications

    One of the biggest issues I have with the new applications vs packages is the inability to specify deployment types in task sequences. I usually write 2 or 3 different DT's. One silent, one noisy (For self serve) and one uninstall.

  3. DCM to check for audit settings

    Configuration Management needs the ability to check for Audit settings on a folder, much like it checks security settings.

    I know it can be done in powershell, but thats a very long and nasty road.

  4. Switch to let SCCM install applications in OSD via admin account instead of trusted user

    SCCM is great for deploying OS's, and MDT is great for customizing those images. I'm asking for a switch that allows SCCM to act like MDT when it comes to installing and customizing a reference image.

  5. Install applications before users can press ctrl+alt+delete to login.

    Add feature to deploy applications before users are allowed to logon at the ctrl+alt+delete screen. This would be a nice alternative to having to check for running processes before installing applications and would not interrupt users in their work.

  6. Suspend Software Center activities when in PowerPoint presentation mode

    Currently, there exists a setting in Software Center to "suspend Software Center activities when my computer is in presentation mode." Users don't have any idea what Windows Presentation Mode is. Ideally, the setting would stop Software Center activities when PowerPoint is running a presentation. That is often when you'd want to stop Software Center from installing something anyway.

  7. Allow an application to install interacively IF a user is logged on; otherwise install without interaction

    Currently, in order to allow an application to have interaction, you need to select the option to install "Only when a user is logged on". It would be better if it allowed interaction if the user is logged on, but install without interaction if NO user is logged on. When running an MSI with /qb, you want interaction because the installer may need to prompt the user to close an application. However, if no user is logged on then it doesn't matter and interaction is not necessary.

  8. Browser plugins

    If a plug in is needed for a webpage and it is not installed on the machine redirect the user to the Application Catalog instead of the vendor site. For example, user needs Flash, the page prompts the user to install Flash and directs them to the App Catalog. Do not know if this it technically possible but would be neat. Especially if it worked with all browsers.

  9. Integrate App-V into the SCCM Client.

    Much like how SCEP is installed by the CM client when the option is enabled. Give an option to enable App-V in the client settings and the client installs App-V and any prerequisites.

  10. Applocker Management

    Fully integrate AppLocker into SCCM similar to how you do for SCEP. Would be great to be able to create AppLocker rules and monitor what get allowed and disallowed.

  11. An improved console that merged ADUC, GPMC, and SCCM deployments/queries/collections

    Imagine a console like ADUC that let you view GPOs and AD objects alongside each other, with contextual color-tinted overlays that help you visualize where items are applied. It should also display SCCM collections, queries, and deployments.

  12. Automatically add products to WSUS syncs based on SCCM inventory

    Currently, you need to 'know what you have' to enable update syncs for products in WSUS/SCCM. That means that components could be present and not updated, but systems appear to be '100% up-to-date'. It would be nice to have an option to allow SCCM to add software categories to look for based on inventory results (e.g. 'someone installed SQL Server 2014, so WSUS should now look for updates for it').

  13. Client Push by OU

    Having the ability to use Client Push more granularly would be awesome. We have about 6 domains, and multiple OUs are defined in System Discovery, yet I don't want Client Push enabled on them all, so it is currently disabled. Maybe having an option in the Discovery area, for an OU that is added (right where it says "Search AD Groups and Search Child containers") that enabled Client Push on that discovered OU. Or More granular settings on Client Push itself, maybe a small GUI attached to it

  14. Allow compliance items to be run at logon/logoff

    Right now, Compliance Items can only be scheduled for specific time periods. It would be helpful to schedule Compliance for logoff/logon.

  15. Complete Group Policy Integration

    Configuration Manager should be able to configure all aspects of a workstation that can be done using other Microsoft tools. Some group policy items already exist such as folder redirection and Firewall Policies. It would be great if Firewall could be expanded to include creation of firewall exceptions. It would also be great if we could configure all group policies from within SCCM perhaps using compliance settings.

  16. Admin Console: Show deploymed applications for device / user / collection

  17. Keep App Catalog running with Site Database server down & replica MP's in place

    To improve HA options - this was previously filed on Connect (https://connect.microsoft.com/ConfigurationManagervnext/feedback/details/1413501/keep-app-catalog-running-with-site-database-server-down-replica-mps-in-place)

    When running replica MP's policy is available on the replica MP's DB and Software Center is available and applications are able to installed even if the site server and DB is down. Great for device targeted deployments.

    However for user centric deployments that are available via the App Catalog, the users ability to install these is none existent since when the site database is down the App Catalog cannot load as it tries to connect to it and fails.

    It might be handy if the databaseā€¦

  18. Allow priority ( order) between applications without dependancies

    For example, application with priority 100 will be install before application with priority 500.
    There is some case were dependencie is not sufficient / too strict.

  19. Allow all applications packages and TS deployments to be in the Application Catalog and or Software center

    Allow us to choose where to publish applications for the users. Alot of applications are still installed in Task sequences and it would be great to be able to deploy these and present them in the application catalog.

    The users are getting confused when some applications are in software center and some in application catalog. Please let us have a one stop shop for this.

  20. Defer options for Applications

    Often, there is a need to wait with an installation.
    Such as when user is having a long presentation or workshop.

    To be able to let them defer the installation, even if it is being pushed and mandatory would be a big help.

    There are some decen 3rd party tools making this possible, but I'd really rather deal with this as an setting for the package or application.
