  2. Allow Application Detection to use SHA-1 HASH of a file.

    Allow Application Detection to use SHA-1 HASH of a file to determine if its installed.

    Baseline Configs can test if a file has a particular HASH, but won't let you remediate it (That would be the IDEAL scenario)

    So, we deploy an app that puts the CORRECT file into the location. Using Application Detection, there is no way (other than a VBSCRIPT) to detect if the CORRECT file was moved into place so that the deployment doesn't occur over and over.

    We can natively get the SHA-1 HASH (see baselines) so it shouldn't be THAT hard to integrate into applicationā€¦

  3. Make Dynamically Installed Application CIs Show Up in Compliance Reports

    Applications installed via task sequence using dynamic variables are never compliant because there is no associated Policy (unless you also deploy the application seperately).

    This means that compliance reports are useless if you install applications dynamically as part of your task sequence.

    This is a great shame because it means we have to go back to using hardware or software inventory to reliably detect installed software. In some cases, inventory has to be extended to find certain applications. And since there is no native way to associate an inventory item with an application, that data has to be stored elsewhere,ā€¦

  4. Revoke approvals in Application Catalog. Disable "optional software" for new software notifications

    Allow us to revoke an approval request. If an uninstall command is provided in the deployment type, it should optionally run the uninstall command. Also possibly integrate this with software metering.

    Give us the ability to disable "optional software" for new software notifications. If a user requests some software, then uninstalls it, it will show up as available optional software. The problem is that it will pop up a notification every time the user logs in. This is annoying our users especially since they uninstalled it for a reason. So either make it intelligent enough to remove the notification afterā€¦

  5. Give the users control to schedule application installation on "Application Catalog"

    When a user select an application to install, there are no way to permit them to control the best schedule to an application be installed (like their lunch time).

    Some users tell me that could to be much better for the productivity and practicity.

  6. Application Catalog should have the ability to detect the OS platforms.

    This is to avoid user install the wrong OS platforms applications and unnecessary error pop up which give wrong impression to end user and increase support costs. It should only shown up whatever is applicable similar like software center / Run Advertised Program (RAP).

  7. Cannot setup Application Model withouth detection logic

    We cannot setup a application without detection logic. We have some script/package which has to be deployed on daily basis irrelevant whether application is installed or not and it doesn't require any detection logic. Can we request Microsoft to update Application model i.e we can setup application without detection logic

  9. Allow application install only on logon/logoff screen

    Hi

    A great thing would be install an application on logon screen or after a User logged off.
    So every application is closed.

  10. SMART download on Software Uninstallation

    Application Chains currently download EVERY application before evaluating if "uninstallation" of older version in the chain are necessary.

    Instead.. only download the Final Installation source. then evaluate if older versions "need" to be uninstalled.. (by looking at the detection methods.. and the "uninstall" preferences..

    If needed.. download the entire chain of software uninstallation sources.. (...the current behavior)... else.. you just install it and skip this whole download chain

  11. Combine all portals into one universal portal

    There is so many different portals.

    1- Company portal app for Config manager.
    2- Software Center
    3- New software center
    4- Apple catalog

    Reason: it is way to complicated for users to decide which one to use

    Ask: create one universal portal that does all 4 is capable of doing

  12. Add options to define "on fail" actions for package and application install

    Similar to what is introduced in SP1 for patches, allow us to for example define "reboot and retry upon fail" for package and application installation.

    This catches a lot of issues with installations already, as often a reboot is enough to then let the installation succeed.

  13. Application catalog - select multiple applications to be installed as a queue

    It would be extremly usefull if an user can select multiple applications in the application catalog that he/she wants and then hit the Install button once.

    Hereby the applications are installed in one batch (queue). This wil save the user lots of time and clicking in the application catalog when the user wants to install a couple of applications.

  15. Right click Applications and Packages for open datasource

    If I want to edit the source files for a package I open the properties goto Data Source Tab, copy the sourcefolder and paste it in the explorer to go the source.

    If I want to edit the source files for an application I open the properties of a deployment type, goto Content location, copy and past the content for edit the source.

    It would be nice to right click a package or application to open the source folder directly

  16. Application catalogue improvement

    It would be very useful that we could limit in application catalog what user can view by adding collection see example in attached document below..

    This could be available to all but still require administrative approval.
    Or could be limited let say to a country but still require administrative approval.

  17. Move all (or selected) deployments from one application to another

    It would be nice to have the ability to move all deployments (or selectively chosen ones [CTRL + Click]) from one application to another using a menu accessible by right clicking any of the selected deployments and choosing the new application to move the deployments to and automatically removing the deployments from the original application.

  18. Real time Graphical Icon Machine Status & Application Installation

    It would be good if we have Graphical Icon status indication of Machines present on SCCM console i.e user login icon on machine which will turns green if a user is login & will display the login user name also , turns grey if machine is shutdown .
    Also we should be able to deploy application on single machine also by drag & drop rather to do this by adding machine in collection & it should show the live status i.e In progress , Failed , Completed on that screen only rather to go to Monitoring tab & check statusā€¦

  19. Installation Progress Bar

    Application Model doesn't provide native Installation progress bar similar to Task Sequence progress bar so that we don't need to create custom progress bar interface this is will help user have better end user experience

  20. Better application control (like in Novell ZENworks)

    Are there plans to add better application control, like in Novell ZENworks? At education customers it's sometimes hard to advise ConfigMgr above off ZENworks because of this. They want to control applications for exams and related stuff. For example: Make available on <date/time> and withdraw on <date/time>. In that scenario they want to publish shortcuts on devices only.

    Also an integrated User Environment Management solution would be great! (like Group Policy Preferences)
