How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Allow OS Upgrade and Custom Task Sequences to queue status messages during offline execution

When OS Upgrade and Custom task sequences are running offline (such as following a reboot while on VPN) all task sequence manager status messages are discarded. While this is expected in WindowsPE, it would be beneficial for troubleshooting/reporting if OS Upgrade and Custom task sequences would queue status messages locally just like Executive Manager does with software installation status.

    This is a great idea! We're relying on OS upgrade task sequences to deploy Win10 feature updates to users with laptops in the field, and are currently losing all feedback from the update process. "Monitoring for free" was one of the key reasons based on which I was able to "sell" the idea of using upgrade task sequences to management (as opposed to just writing a script), so I'd say this is pretty important.
