  2. 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.

  3. Check for running exe and is in Presentation mode

    in current Technical Preview is integrated the Check for running exe.
    But as an improvement it will usefully to integrate the Check for Client is in Presenation mode.
    Like the PSapp Deployment Toolkit. with this two things, it will greatly improve the development time of Deployment of Applications.

  4. Under Software Library --> Applications, ability to jump down to an application by typing the first few letters of the application name.

    Under Software Library --> Applications, ability to jump down to an application by typing the first few letters of the application name. This can be done in other modules in the Configuration Manager. I'm not sure why it hasn't been implemented in the Applications module. This is much quicker to jump down to the right application instead of using the Search bar or scrolling down.

  5. 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

  6. Have a Deployement Type Requirement for an Application Installed\Not Installed without creating a Global Condtion

    Instead of creating a Custom Condition of an Application's Existence on specific machines before deploying an app, we could have a drop down that contains the list of already created applications in CM and select the existence or non existence of an application before deployment of said application. Constantly creating Global Conditions is a little strange to me. Thanks.

  8. Integrate App-V into the SCCM Client.

    Much like how SCEP is installed by the CM client when the option is enabled. Give an option to enable App-V in the client settings and the client installs App-V and any prerequisites.

  9. 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).

  10. Application Details

    It would be good to have the following options in Application Tab on SCCM console:

    1) The "Size" tab as we have now for PACKAGES to check the actual size of it.
    2) The “Application ID” as we have for PACKAGES (packageID). Although we do see it under deployment tab but only if we deploy application to any collection. In case we only need to check the distribution status with any deployment being done, we have to go to content status tab and search with application name. This could be made handy as is done for Packages section.

  12. Unable to target a User with an App-V 5.x App and have the middleware installed Globally so I can use plugins to IE

    I think we have a strong business case around the Application model in CM12 SP1 and using App-V 5.0 to do user-based software targeting. As Kaido and I are doing a workshop for learning more on App-V and the possibilities , we ran into some challenges I believe are critical and needs to be solved in a certain way . What the correct way is , I leave that up to the smart engineering guy’s in Redmond .

    One of the great promises of application virtualization is dynamic delivery of software to end-users; however delivering plugins or add-ons to installed…

  13. Package and application templates

    It would be nice with an option where you can define package and application templates.
    An application can require a lot of input; with a template, many of the options can be pre-filled. This will make it easier to create new applications, and they will be created the same way each time.

    It should be possible to add/edit and delete the templates.

    Coretech have a similar tool for software update.

  14. Support upgrading of Windows Store for Business offline apps without requiring to uninstall

    At the moment (1610) the detection and superseding process for WSfB offline apps does not work. The old version is installed, and the new version detects as being installed but it isn't. The only way the upgrading works is if the supersede option to uninstall the previous version is checked - unfortunately this also deletes the local app data, shortcuts and tiles.

  15. Browser plugins

    If a plug in is needed for a webpage and it is not installed on the machine redirect the user to the Application Catalog instead of the vendor site. For example, user needs Flash, the page prompts the user to install Flash and directs them to the App Catalog. Do not know if this it technically possible but would be neat. Especially if it worked with all browsers.

  17. Create “master-applications” and download user specific settings as a deployment type.

    I would like to see the option to have one deployment type as a base for all our customers and then add customer specific settings an other deployment type.

    Example 1:
    Adobe Acrobat XI Pro would be the default deployment type and the MST-transform file, containing user customizations and license information, downloaded based on OU-Membership or some other variable and applied during the installation.
    Example 2:
    Office 2013 ProPlus as the default deployment type and the “MSP”, containing user customizations and license information, downloaded based on OU-Membership or some other variable.

  18. Program

    A workflow system (tab) for handling application/package errors (i.e non-zero return codes) for example; I should be able to config a setting of if the package/program gets an exit code of 1025 then handle it particular way or reboot try again 1 more time.

    Suggested options could be
    - Reboot device, try again 1 more time (great for 1025 errors)
    - E-mail support team X on X failure
    - Execute package 'PackageID/ProgramID' then attempt 1 more time (great for clean up scripts)
    - Add to collection X on Y error.

  19. More robust control of system restart

    Now we have only two parameters for Restart behavior: time to show the first warning and time to show the 'always on top' notification. It would be better if we can configure some user-controllable options. E.g. possibility to postpone a reboot.

  20. Add predefined action (to task sequence or application/package) to copy files/folders to user workstation (as user OR as system)

    Often whole software config is a single file. It is a pain to keep creating batch files for a simple copy action
