Better application control (like in Novell ZENworks)
Are there plans to add better application control, like in Novell ZENworks? At education customers it's sometimes hard to advise ConfigMgr above off ZENworks because of this. They want to control applications for exams and related stuff. For example: Make available on <date/time> and withdraw on <date/time>. In that scenario they want to publish shortcuts on devices only.
Also an integrated User Environment Management solution would be great! (like Group Policy Preferences)
I agree, schools would like to have applications available based on time, espescially during exam periods.

Totally agree. Everything is possible with extra scripting on your deployment.
Doing this as a standard on all items is not achievable.
Most common tasks should be expanded in the Application model.
