How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Custom TS Progress UI

We currently have possibility to create our custom UI-s using scripts. Would be great to have a possibility to choose, if you want to use native progress UI, or create custom one in TS properties for example. So every time native Progress UI would be shown, it would show custom UI instead. Current way to use custom scripts has a small drawback: to start it, you have to use task sequence step. Which means, if some step restarts computer(not task sequence restart steps), you have to wait until next step, until you can start your own custom UI again.

We had this scenario, a restart was made during one TS step and after that there was black screen, until the step, which restarted computer was finished. It was Install Updates builtin step, which made that restart, can't really control that restart either. Can of course make default progress UI visible, but that means, that there are times, when there are two different windows on screen, which show the same information.

Using custom UI currently using TS steps also means, that after every planned TS restart you have to manually start your UI. Which currently means our 80 step TS has 18 steps related to custom UI (variables, hide/show the native progress UI, run actual script etc), thats almost 1/4. Would be great to create your own UI for the task sequence and let task sequence manager control the UI.
