How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Further Customize Web Application Deployment Types

Web Application deployment types in their current incarnation are not very usable. The main issues with using them are that:

1. There is no control over where the shortcut to the Web App gets placed; they always go to the start menu. We would like the option to put the shortcut on the desktop or in the user's favorites menu. To do this currently we have to write a script and cannot use this deployment type.

2. The icon for the Web Application should use the icon imported into the software center. Nondescript icons make finding the application you want to launch much more difficult that it needs to be.

    Agreed as well. Taking it just a step or two further, allow the Start Menu location to be customized as well. For instance, we publish AppV packages to users in a folder, it would be nice to have our in-house web applications placed in that folder as well.

    Agreed, In a world where most things are web based, this makes more sense. we have older users that like the shortcut on the desktop, so we could target them, also the icon is a must, so that users know what they are using
