How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Configure application deployment retry

When applications fail to deploy, you need to wait for the next application deployment reevaluation cycle before the next attempt is made to install it (unless the user manually retries via software center).

In the most part, when applications fail generally it's because of something that is going on at the endpoint at that specific time. E.g. reboot pending/a file in use etc etc. Therefore on a second retry (normally after a reboot) the application will install.

It would be good if there was a "Retry Failed Install" option where you could configure if you wanted the application to automatically retry installing if it failed. You could specify..

- If you want this to happen

- The maximum number of attempts
- When you want it to retry (on next reboot etc).

When the MSI exit code returns reboot pending, it could also automatically retry on the next reboot.
