Notifications require to improve the user experience better in Certain areas
Reboot notification message for application/package deployments:
when an application or a package requires a reboot, if it is a mandatory deployment, it will show a notification in system tray based on the 'Computer Restart' Client settings.
But, it would be grateful if we have a notification message to show to the end users after the installation.
This is been recently added for Task Sequence based deployments. There a is a tab ‘User notification’ in the properties of Task Sequence.
Likewise, if we get this option for Application based and package based deployments, but with options to customize the message and display the message in certain intervals repeatedly that will be grateful.
Notification for Task sequence based deployments:
When we deploy an application to the users, it will show the notifications in software center and show a balloon popup notification in system tray based on the deployment settings in ‘User Experience’ tab called ‘Display in Software Center and show all notifications’.
These options ‘User experience’ not available in Task sequence based deployments.
It would be grateful if we get such options even in Task sequence based deployments.
Notification for Available deployments:
Once the Available deployment reaches on software center, it will show a notification at the time when the deployment reaches the machine, based on the ‘user experience’ options set in the deployment.
However, it won’t show further notification to remind the user to say that there is an application available in the software center and ask them to install it.
It would be helpful if we get an option to show a notification message for Available deployments to remind the users to action on it.
Notification for ‘Pending for restart’ machines in Software update deployments:
We all know that the software updates need system restart to apply the patches nowadays, in order to make the machines as compliance. But, we can’t do force reboot due to the bad user experience in it. However, we also need to achieve maximum compliance in software update deployments.
So, it would be grateful if we show a user notification to show a message regarding this pending restart and instruct the users to restart their machines ASAP and an option to customize this message as well with customizable interval.

Add the option in the User Experience to provide a pop-up window notification with Software Update deployments, not just application deployments.
Add the deadline (day & time) to the restart notification pop-up window triggered by 1902 client settings.
