  1. Allow custom icons in software center for Task Sequences

    Split this item from a bigger umbrella item.
    This is to specify an icon per App Task Sequence in the Software Center.

  2. Add "Uninstall Application" option to Tasksequence

    It is possible to "Install Application" in a Tasksequence. It would be nice to be able to "Uninstall Application" too.

  3. Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages

    Allow for dynamically selecting Apply Driver Packages, pretty much like it works for normal packages (applications). This would reduce the number of hardcoded Apply Driver Package in the task sequence.

  4. Make ConfigMgr work with Autopilot and Enrollment Status Page (ESP)

    When deploying a device using Autopilot, the Enrollment Status Page (ESP) is used to prevent access to the desktop until the device provisioning tasks are complete. But ConfigMgr doesn't integrate with the ESP, so there's no way to wait for packages, apps, or task sequences - the user doesn't know when the process is done. Add that integration.

  5. Native 802.1x Support for Enterprise Operating System Deployments

    Provide Support 802.1x Natively w/o the use of prestart up scripts in WinPE. Many large organizations have protected network infrastructure for their environments that want to be able to easily utilizes the Deployment feature on these protected networks.

  6. Bootimage download with HTTP instead of TFTP

    Downloading the boot image with TFTP is slow and download may fail within slow or unreliable networks.
    Downloading with HTTP or iSCSI will increase the speed dramatically and the stability is improved also.
    With iPXE this technology is implemented and works fine.
    My idea is to implement the HTTP download with SCCM.
    This would be a great enhancement to performance and stability in the OS deployment.

    Hi. I’m setting the status back to Noted – this was mixed up with the item “Add support for TFTP Window Size” – that has been Started and is available in the 1603 tech preview build.

    Thanks,
    BobMN on behalf of SangeeV for SCCM OS Deployment

  7. Support OSD over Wireless

    As more and more devices are shipping without wired network adapters, and more business areas are going "wireless only," the traditional ability to reimage a device in place is getting scarce. This is especially true in primary and secondary education institutions.

    Please provide support for adding Wireless drivers to WinPE, and the ability to provision wireless network profiles for the WinPE phase of the task sequence to enable imaging over wireless network connections.

    Updating this item as there’s support for Windows 10 In-place upgrade using the Cloud Management Gateway – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1802
    Adding this in case some folks missed it or Win 10 In-place upgrade addresses their requirement.

    I recognize this it not full OS Deployment as there’s no WinPE phase (WinPE has no wireless stack)

  8. OSD - Deploy TS to User groups

    Would be nice to be able to advertise Task Sequences to specific users or groups. We have some operating system deployments that we would like only certain users to run, support staff for instance.

  9. Start ProgressUI after reboot in Task Sequence at logon screen (non OS TS)

    When you use Task Sequences (TS) to deploy software (non OS TS) and there is a reboot inside of the TS there will be no ProgressUI at the logon Screen after the reboot. So you can't see the Progress of the running TS or there is a TS running.
    If You logon, after a short time the ProgressUI will start.
    We started a MS Case (REG:116092814729429): This is a expected behavior because it's not planned for out of WinPE stage.

    Please implement the start of the ProgressUI after the reboot inside of the TS, so we can see the Progressā€¦

  11. windows 10 upgrade servicing

    Support SUP/ESD/WSUS/update-based packages via the "Upgrade Operating System" task sequence step so that task sequence-driven upgrades can benefit from the smaller size of the ESD files (2.5GB) compared to the full media used today (3.5GB).

  12. Apply all deployed applications step in OSD

    A step during OSD that queries SCCM for the applications deployed to a machine. If any are deployed to collections the machine is a member of they are installed one at a time, performing any restarts untill the whole list is complete. This should be an integrated step rather than implemented inconsistently by third-parties in PS or IIS

  13. Allow us the ability to view all variables and their values that are available in a task sequence (both built-in and custom) via a gui

    While testing some new functionality in SCCM 1602 current branch I inadvertently searched for a possible new variable using the 'set dynamic variable' step.

    Unfortunately that doesn't list read only variables in the 'existing variables' list (read only variables begin with _). It would be awesome if this gui would list all built-in variables (including read-only ones) as this would make searching for a particular variable easier than having to google or bing it.

    Secondly, how about the option to list all custom defined variables in this gui, along with their values (if any). today we get the following headingsā€¦

  14. F8 Troubleshooting Environment Steroids (F8TES)

    Replace the OSD Boot Image "Enable CMD Support (testing only)" feature with something that is more robust, helpful, and useful outside of testing like the F8 Troubleshooting Environment Steroids (F8TES).

    Info: Display full name of task sequence and its ID
    Info: Display full name of TS Deployment and its ID
    Info: Display full name and type of error step
    Info: Display error code
    Info: (Stretch Goal) Display useful error message for top 10 errors

    Button: ā€œOpen Command Promptā€
    - Launches the command prompt
    - Defaults to Insert instead of Overwrite (it currently defaults to overwrite in the WinPE phase)

    Updating status to planned.

    We shipped our 1905 Technical Preview today.

    Doc: https://docs.microsoft.com/sccm/core/get-started/2019/technical-preview-1905
    Blog: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Configuration-Manager-Blog/Group-applications-into-a-single-deployment-in-ConfigMgr/ba-p/624318

    This preview contains the first release of the task sequence debugger. We’ll continue working on it to address more of the asks in this item.

  15. Windows 10 Servicing Customization

    It would be great to be able to customize the Windows 10 image or allow a "clean up script" to run post install. I like the concept of the Windows 10 Servicing part of the SCCM console. I think it will become important as upgrades start rolling out 1-2 times a year and majority of companies have Windows 10 clients that need servicing. Being able to create Servicing plans will help keep IT on top of the upgrade process through different updates.

    The current model just doesn't work for a lot of companies. Not many places allow games such asā€¦

  16. Allow us to pre-provision appx application types in the Task Sequence

    ConfigMgr supports .appx deployment, but sometimes we want these on every machine, so our preferred way would be to do this in the Task Sequence.

    Currently, the Add Application step in the Task Sequence doesn't let us browse for .appx packages.

    Please consider adding support these during OSD.

  17. Speed up OSD by having ConfigMgr set High Performance power settings in WinPE and Running OS during TS

    When you run a task sequence, both WinPE and the target OS by default run with a Balanced power plan. Changing this in both WinPE and the target OS can significantly speed up the task sequence. For example, when applying a large WIM file, we've seen laptops go from taking 15 minutes to apply to less than 8 minutes by adding some Run Command Line steps to change the power to High Performance.

  18. Task Sequence Editor Search

    We have over 300 Groups/Steps in a couple of our task sequences. It would be really helpful to be able to search with the Task Sequence Editor. Either by step name or group name. In a perfect world it would be helpful to search descriptions or other text content within each group or step.

  20. Upgrade Operating System Task should be able to use Windows Servicing Content and Allow user interaction

    Problem:
    ā€¢ Current state of windows 10 servicing via upgrade sequence requires full media to take the client through setup.
    o Full media is 2x the size of existing ESD (upgrade content)
    o The Upgrade Operating System step does not allow the end user to defer the reboot nor does it warn the user of a reboot pending once setup has been kicked off

    I. The Upgrade Operating System step in the task sequence shall permit the administrator to reference windows 10 servicing content
    II. The Upgrade Operating System step in the task sequence shall permit theā€¦
