Make all dialogs shown to the end-user include company logo
A truly great feature would be to be able to customize all dialogs show to the end-user, both for OSD, but also reboot prompts basically all dialogs shown to the end-user.
Adding a company logo so that the end-user actually knows it is from our company and trustworthy.
ConfigMgr 1610 is available today and branded dialogs with company log is included. Thank you everyone for your feedback on this!
You can edit pxeabort.com in a hex editor to change its message, but I imagine they don't want you doing that.

We need Beaker the Muppet in our environment. It's an absolute operating necessity. This thread would make it possible.
Agreed with that.
This is a must! Phishing is a huge issue in our environment and many of our remote users are concerned.
When using the new Operating System Upgrade Packages and launching it from Software Center it prompts with the default confirmation of system being reimaged message. Even though the Task Sequence is for the new built-in Windows 10 in-place upgrade scenario the message to the user says "all your files will be deleted". This makes doing in-place upgrades impossible as no user will click on the install. This is a huge oversight and has halted our Windows 10 deployment.

I agree with this. With all the phishing issues we have these days this is a must.
MS, please listen to us, this is a must have. We had our remote site people drive 90 minutes to HQ to complain. Had to replace the prompt restart to the AppDeployToolkit so we can put a logo. Please do not half *** job with it, allow full customization!

I agree with the previous posts and comments. The standard message "Your IT department requires changes to the software on your computer" is too Generic. In large IT shops we need to be able to customize this.
Some patches require multiple restarts, and we would like to be able to say so in the pop up.

This is huge for us - maybe a prompt task that can be inserted into a task sequence (without having to install MDT for the UI customizations). I could see this being implemented as follows.
Admin Input #1) Radio button to customize type of input: alert/progress bar (no user interaction), reboot notification (user can restart or postpone), or acknowledge (for items which you do not want delayed, such as zero-day patches).
Admin Input #2) Text field to display
Admin Input #3) Corporate logo selection
Admin Input #4) We also like to include a prompt to the severity, using error/warning icons - this might be something worth including.
I support the idea and would be better able to still send messages to customers without the need to reboot.
Not all customers have same IT department supporting ConfigMgr. We have completely separate group called IT department and don't want our end users to start calling IT department for any issues. Allow customization for below text from Software Center.
"Your IT department requires changes to the software on your computer"
So true, "Your IT Department" looks like a phishing attempt!

I have used up my votes as well, but this is greatly missed! Please add!
Also the text for task sequences - tells you we are installing a new OS even though we may be using a task sequence to do something completely different!
Customer wanted to customize the Software Center message specifically where it says ”Software change must be applied to your computer after 6/17/2015 at 8 am” which is confusing for many end user as they think they only need to apply the changes after 6/17/2015 and not prior to that. I think that message should read “”Software change must be applied to your computer by deadline 6/17/2015 at 8 am or any time prior to this date”….or something along those lines….
