  1. Add email capability to OSD Task Sequence

    It would be really nice if we could add email functionality to an OSD Task Sequence. Currently we have to call all of our techs and make sure nobody is imaging before we can make any changes. If we could be notified when a TS begins and ends then it would make it much easier to manage things remotely.

      Updating status to Noted. Thanks for the feedback, we have a similar item in our Database. The goal was a task sequence step that could notify a user or technician on completion or error. Another case was to pair with Windows 10 Upgrade – allow setup.exe to run silently with /Compat then send an e-mail notifying the user or admin that the machine is ready to upgrade.

    • Deployment Type with version when auto creating DT

      There are multiple places where a reference to an application is only with GUID and DT name. E.g. logs.
      If the DT name had version number in the name, it would easy to see what application is referenced when you have more than one version of a product and thereby more applications.

      When creating an application for a Windows Installer, it would be great to have the automatic DT creation process to include the version, if provided, in the DT name.

      In addition, if the creation of a script installer DT could include the names and versions from the applicationā€¦

      • compliance items, add deployment tab to bottom pane

        on the compliance item, add deployments tab with the capability of creating collection from the compliance item. You can do it on the compliance baseline but that is not sufficient as a baseline may have more than 1 CI so your target collection *MAY* have a mix of issues. *OR* just make it where you can deploy a CI in addition to baseline with same capabilities

        • Enhance temporary nodes when viewing deployments

          Opening Monitoring - Deployments, double clicking a software deployment, takes us to the Deployment Status.
          If i open the Error status tab and double click one of the categories, a temporary node is created, containing the affected computers.
          If the temporary node is left open and i go back to the Error status tab and double click another category, i'm brought back to the same temporary node.
          This is due to the node being limited to the status and not the category.

          I'd like to have the temporary node reflect the category, not just the status.

          • Adjust ZTIApplication to return error codes during installation

            Currently, if an application fails to install due to a typo or error during install, the task sequence just continues on. It would be preferable to at least have an option for the task sequence to fail if an application did not get installed.

            • Add line numbers in CMTrace

              I often use a tool to search all log files for a particular entry, and the search results tell me what line the entry is located on within each log file. If CMTrace had line numbers, it would help locate the search results within the log files.

              • Move "ERROR" Flagged Deployments to In-Progress for "Application not detected" after installation.

                Move "ERROR" Flagged Deployments to In-Progress for "Application not detected" after installation. Currently, many deployments install as expected but are not detected after installation. Soon after the detection succeeds and subsequently resolves to "Success".

                    • Add processor architecture (x64/x86) to Check Readiness step

                      Some task sequences can run only on the correct processor architecture e.g. cannot upgrade Win7 x86 to Win10 x64 or cannot install x64 OS to 32 bit device.

                      Add processor architecture (x64/x86) to Check Readiness step. Thus, the incorrect task sequence is immediately canceled if you try to install wrong architecture TS.

                        It is always hard to find tenantID, Onmicrosoft.com address and Service Instance when managing Intune in Hybrid.
                        It would be of great help if we could get this information in the Microsoft Intune Subscription View in the ConfigMgr Admin Console

                        • DCR: OSD Task Sequence - Create Baseline of existing TS and allow Remediation

                          From my field experience I have seen many times OS Deployments which did not really succeed, because of Continue on error conditions. In most cases the reason was to not end up with systems staying in Provisioning Mode. I know some guys just "re-deploy" the TS with checks if everything was done properly. This brought up the idea - why not using Compliance Settings for this purpose? At least to check if the system meets the Desired Baseline. Everything needed should be stored in the Task Sequence anyway and it would allow a "Report" summary client side after Deployment.

                                the view status option (ie deployment, content status, etc). only allow 1 option each time, so if you click view status and need to go back to the list it will refresh and you may need to filter it back and view status on the other one that you want. it would be good if the view status could be done on selected items, so you click view status (maybe right click the select and view status) and it would create the node for all selected items

                                  Currently deployed task sequences create a lot of policy download and slow down the initialisation of a workstation. If they worked like in bootable media, or another way - I don't know if say downloading the TS policies as a zip would help?

                                  • Linked Reports from within other reports - folder reference

                                    Microsoft reports that have other reports linked, donā€™t work anymore with our modified folder structure. So we applied changes to those MS reports. In this case we didnā€™t create our own report but modified the MS reports. -> links should be added like this: ..\subfolder\reportname, not using the complete hardcoded folder structure. That way ā€“ since the linked reports are always in the same folder or in the subfolder like in the default structure ā€“ all links will work no matter in which folder the report actually sits.

                                    • Add subfolder search to Task Sequence Install Package

                                      When you use the action "Install Package" you can search for the package but it only searches the selected folder and not the structure. Could a switch be added to search subfolders?

                                      • Fix German translation for ā€˜complianceā€™

                                        When using the German version of the SCCM Console, Reports, Software Center or Control Panel Applet the word ā€˜complianceā€™ is translated with ā€˜Kompatibelā€™ which is the German word for ā€˜compatibleā€™

                                        This doesnĀ“t really make sense and should be translated with a better German Word like ā€˜KonformitƤtā€™
