    Take all my votes! We NEED custom icons for task sequences! I can live without icons on my legacy packages, but task sequences are not going anywhere anytime soon. We have literally resorted to making applications that start a task sequence via powershell.

    I manage with JAMF (Self Service) and SCCM (Software Center) on the daily. Yike...come on Microsoft! You are getting destroyed.

    Was just a going to make my own thing here requesting this. Mostly for Packages because deploying Adobe and AutoDesk having the ability to add an icon for end users would be a god send. Please make this a thing. or at least explain what is so complicated about not making it a thing.

    Yes definitely needed. Users are unsure of what to click on, unless they read each one carefully.

    It's been more than 2 years with almost 1,000 votes. What's the magic number we need to hit in order to make this happen?

    This is definitely needed. We have some scripts that run to install important applications, and because of the way these install we have had little success with the application model. Packages seem much more consistent. The ONLY downside is that it's not easily distinguishable to end-users.

    Yes, users are easily confused. Having fancy icons is actually very necessary, better overall user experience.

    In the education sector we are always dealing with poorly coded apps that need a variety of methods to install unattended; which leads us to use a combination of applications, packages and task sequences to roll out software.

    The inability to add software center icons to packages and task sequences makes the app less intuitive to users, who wonder why some apps have icons and others don't. It creates doubt in there mind which although slight, is enough to make them feel unsure which spoils the user experience.

    Adding the ability to add icons to packages and task sequences would be very useful for us; I'd also like the ability to put a more detailed packaged / TS description along with the deployment - but icons would be a great first step.

    This is a feature that is needed.
    No mater how you try, application do not replace all the functions of packages that are required.

    They need icons to be identified easily in the Software Centre.
