Software Center - Software changes dialog box details link should link through to Installation Status tab
- Deployment with installation deadline- End user receives a "Software changes are required' notification (balloon/toast)
- End user clicks the notification
- A dialog box opens showing the number of required changes, restart requirement and some options for scheduling
- When clicking view details (next to required changes) Software Center opens in the application tab
On the applications tab there is no indication what item the change notification is referring to. The actual purpose of the change remains unclear for the end user.
It would be nice if the view details link opens the Software Center in the Installation Status tab. Here the scheduled items are listed. Additionally the relevant item(s) could be highlighted and/or (temporarily) be listed somewhere on top of the entries list. Alternatively a filter on status could be used.
Starting in in 1702 and the Installation Status tab is activated when clicking view details. Highlighting the relevant items is not implemented; please open a separate idea for that suggestion.

The Installation Status tab does not show software required but not yet run. The details tab should have gone to "Available Software" as that is where the user finds new software.
