  1. Allow custom icons in software center for Task Sequences

    Split this item from a bigger umbrella item.
    This is to specify an icon per App Task Sequence in the Software Center.

  2. OSD - Deploy TS to User groups

    Would be nice to be able to advertise Task Sequences to specific users or groups. We have some operating system deployments that we would like only certain users to run, support staff for instance.

  3. Task Sequence Editor Search

    We have over 300 Groups/Steps in a couple of our task sequences. It would be really helpful to be able to search with the Task Sequence Editor. Either by step name or group name. In a perfect world it would be helpful to search descriptions or other text content within each group or step.

  4. Task Sequence Pre-Cache for all Packages inside

    It would be nice to have the ability to conditionally pre-cache all packages in Upgrade TS and not only OS Upgrade step.

    To describe it in more details, in current design we are able to pre-cache only OS Upgrade step to computers based on conditions. This is not enough for companies with 20+ languages as best approach is to create en-us core image and then apply MUI on top of that. Doing this will cause system to report as e.g. de-de so we would need to download and distribute to 150+ DPs all supported Upgrade packages instead of distributing only…

  5. Task Sequence Break Points for Debugging

    It would be beneficial if you could set breakpoints at any line item in the task sequence, just like when coding, to stop the task sequence progress. Have a dialog pop up with which you can continue to the next break point.

  6. Run Powershell Script (Task Sequence Step) passed parameters not visible in logging

    When parameters are provided on a 'Run Powershell Script' in a task sequence, the SMSTS.log only logs the name of the script. It does not log the full command (including parameters) that are invoked.

    For example: if I call Java.ps1 with parameters -level 1 -language eng the SMSTS.log only shows...

    Running powershell script: 'Java.ps1'(PkgID: SCM00000) with execution policy 'Bypass'

    This would be helpful in troubleshooting what parameters were actually passed to the script that is executing. Otherwise you have to track down the task sequence and assume everything entered is passed and run. Or you have to build your PS1…
