  3. Provide more information on Packages on the API.

    Provide more information on Packages on the API. Applications provide way more information. It would be nice to have that for Packages

  5. Enable Forced Reboots After A Certain Period of Time Despite User Control

    I would like an option where we can set a window of availability where the end users can postpone a reboot after an update but then is forced to reboot anyway after a certain period of time.

    What I mean is that yes, the users get the Software Update Center window that allows them to customize their options but if they don't reboot within a certain period of time, it'll reboot anyway.

  6. Link texts are not showing up in Software Center.

    I read somewhere else that that feature is no longer functional due because Application Catalog was retired. Please update the documentation if this is true.

  7. Software Center dialog boxes need fit and finish improvements

    In the new Software Center 1710, The dialog boxes need some tweaking. When you have Software that requires Approval, After the software is approved. the Dialog Box still says -Software needs approved and has a dialog box - This is confusing to the user. Even though below it, it says installing.

  8. Add share functionality to Software Center to get deep link

    The Share function on Software Center provide a link which requires the user to copy and paste the copied link to IE in order to activate.

    I would expect it to be an active link where user can just click to access the software.

  11. SCCM/WSUS missing updates

    Sometimes systems will pickup updates, where SCCM/WSUS was not able to. Not a good thing when you have to double check your monthly deployments. Get it fixed. See case#118041918036415.

  12. Microsoft Systems Management Server and Clustered Server Environments

    The SMS initial design did not include support for any form of clustered server; therefore services such as the SMS_Executive service were not written to handle the failure of a clustered system. For this reason, Microsoft does not support any version of SMS in a cluster server environment.

    In SMS versions 1.x, clustered drives caused problems to several services on a site server, many of which were sub-threads of the SMS_Executive service. For this reason, SMS version 1.x was not supported on clustered servers. SMS version 1.x was designed to be able to recover on its own from certain failures.…

  13. Software Center Updates Node - (re)enable sorting

    In older versions of SCCM, you could sort on "Status", "Publisher" and "Name" in the Updates node of Software Center.

    This was very helpful when installing updates - being able to sort on status in particular ("pending verification", "restart pending", "installing", etc.)

    Please bring this functionality back.

  14. Stop a Software Updates Synchronization

    During a training session I misread a Lab on Software Updates. I ran the Synchronization and proceeded to download 10k+ software updates because I did not choose the specific updates I needed for the lab correctly. I had to continue to another lab while I waited for the Synchronization to complete. This is entirely my fault, but my instructor thought this would be a good idea to see if it would be possible to stop a running synchronization of Software Updates.

  17. Deploy OSD from Software Center as Required TS

    When pushing OSD from Software Center it works ok if made Available but always fails if pushed as Required. Would like to see Software Center wait until ALL portions of the Policy are downloaded before allowing it to proceed or show in SC

  18. I would like to see some kind of exception tab for Software installs based on user device or user device affinity.

    I would like to a have an exception tab so I can put certain users or certain devices in this tab. This tab would be available after creating an application in the console and can be accessed from properties of the application the software library. This allows for those user or devices in which we have certain rollout of software or application that could be rolled out to most devices of a company but not install for something like a manufacturing device that needs to stay on an older version of software or not have the software installed at all.

  19. Software Center - Receive notification once software is approved

    User requests software. Admin approves software. User has no way to know when the new software request has been approved.

    It would be nice if there was a Toast Window to display, "You're new software was approved and is now ready for you to install. Click here to install."

  20. Software Center - Group By Installed / Not Installed

    This would make is much easier to see what has and hasn't been installed on a device without having to open it up!
