How can we improve Configuration Manager?

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 Progress at the logon Screen.

        We have faced the same issue when we are upgrading the Office from 2013 to O365 with TS. There is a reboot step after you uninstall the Office 2013 and after restart step Office 365 get install. Many user reported that are not sure if the upgrade is still running or not.

        There are several 3rd party workarounds for notifying user of progress during an in-place OS upgrade but a supported native solution would be best.

        You state that the ProgressUI will return after the user logs in. This is only the case if they log in before the TS starts back up again. If not they will never see a progress bar.

        Another aye for this one. Also having to reboot into PE to change ui language to en-us to proceed with multi language upgrade from 1607 to 1709. Comes back to typical login screen with the user having no idea that the upgrade is still in progress.

        exactly what we need for out Windows10 Upgrade TS, which has a first step to go in WinPE to change base language to english, updates BIOS' then goes back to OS to start the upgrade, but users land at the logon screen and no TS Progress is shown... So they login and start working, then Upgrade OS Step kicks in and reboots in their face. Having the progress on the LockScreen, or even better, preventing the users to login until the TS is complete, would be perfect.

        We need this too for Inplace Upgrade to Windows 10.
        Please provide a workaround!

        Rgds.

        Customers are looking for this feature..It is important since we are moving to windows as a service model

        This would be huge. We use TS for our Office 365 and CRM rollouts, and don't really want users logging back on until it is finished.

        Yes please! This would be massively useful. we often get users logging on to a system that is in progress of running an update task sequence. so we have to try and block logon at the start and undo it at the end.
