This is to specify an icon per App Task Sequence in the Software Center.

    Users find it confusing as to why some applications in Software Center have nice new icons and others have a grey square with arrows. Please let us add shiny, new icons to old packages as it will make the user experience much better

    Since upgrading to 1710, we have been adding new icons since the size was expanded to 500 x 500. Perhaps they should be called tiles now. All the programs with default icons are so tiny and ugly. There are applications, utilities, and scripts that don't fit into Application Model. Task Sequences too. Please add the ability to have custom icons, tiles, or whatever you want to call them to the product. Or at least provide options for nicer looking defaults.

    Agreed that task sequence needs custom icon capability. If there are multiple especially if some are only used to install applications and not OS's it gets confusing. Also the default icon is tiny resize ti to at least look good at 256x256

    Definitely should be added, making SCCM more accessible for the end user makes everyone's life easier.

    Do it please! No way to deploy a Task Sequence on Software Center without an icon.

    Would like the ability to add icons to Packages, not just Applications. sometimes we have legacy apps using .exe or in house .exe that we add to Software Center and of course there is no option to add an associated icon. Yes, we could do an exe pkg in Applications but it has to be built manually.

    Either having the ability to add icons to Packages or the ability to build Applications with .exe would make be awesome!

    Please add this feature, it would make the product even nicer. Also an interface to add custom menu items would be nice. Now we have to put in a lot of effort or use third party tools

    Our Software Center looks so messy without lots of icons so the users cant always see what they're looking for even though it's there as we cant add icons to them.

    We really need the ability to add custom icons for packages and Task Sequences, so when we prepare end user documentation it is easier for them to follow and find the right items, rather than various packages get lost in the sea of sameness.

    Im just getting my company over to SCCM and every one cringed when our PFE said you can't set icons. Pleeaaaase do this. User experience is important. I'm now spending tons of time getting packages to run as msi applications just so we can have nice looking icons.
