  1. Ability to customize SoftwareCenter icon size and views

    I realize there are already some request for custom icons, but please make the icons smaller or better yet: make the default views customizable.
    The List view still wastes too much space. Also you should be able to sort by klicking on the row headers.

    I am still using the old SW center because it is much easier to view, especially for the updates.
    Speaking of the updates view, the install all button is good, but when you switch to selecting there is no select all. Which would be very helpful if you just want to skip ONE single update…

  3. Next available maintenace window - Improvements

    Great work on the improvements on the new software center – especially the next available Maintenance Window … but … why stuff it under need a tab and then a subtab ?

    A few reasons why I want it in the top right corner :


    1. I really think an end user is not going to drill down to the tab below to find the info. The user and helpdesk really want to see it when they open software center . What is going on in detail , can be found under a subtab for all I care .

    2. Server Admins…

  4. Add License Details/Cost to Software Center

    Add the ability to display License Terms and Costs for Applications published in Software Center.

    Having a separate call out for License Cost, Term (Quarterly, Bi-Annual, Yearly, etc.) can help employees make better informed decisions before downloading software. In addition, having this published in unique fields (outside the general Notes field) enables automation capabilities when connecting to SAM solutions as these values could then be auto-updated, etc. or used to trigger license assignment on the backend.

  5. Add view to Software Center to track deployments

    Add a tab that displays the history of all changes (TS, Packages, Applications, Updates, Compliance Remediation, ...) done by ConfigMgr Client. This should be possible to order by date or Name. It should also keep track of changes by packages that were deployed and run in the past, but are not deployed anymore.
    In best case provide this as an WMI class, which can be added to HINV optionally.

  7. Category icons - Turn software center into an App Store

    Software Center now already has beautiful large icons. But it's still rather primitive. If you want to browse software by category right now you have to use the filter.

    It would be great if you have the option of displaying categories and even featured apps on the main software centre page, much like what you would see in Apple's app store or Google Play store.

    It would improve the experience for users immensely.

  10. Automatic icon download in Application Catalog for known vendors

    With ConfigMgr recently changing the icon size to a high resolution spec it has created a world of hurt and a manual task to create the icons again.

    ConfigMgr should provide a feature that auto includes icons / logos for known vendors from a central repository. It would cut down a lot of time for admins around the world and keep the catalogue looking pretty and consistent.

  11. Possibility to set for how long and deploy application should be ""new"

    I would like the Possibility to set for how long and deploy application should be ""new" in Software Center
    Today it's say every time I log on that i have I new application available in software center.
    I might already have installed or don't want to install it.
    Should be good that we have a setting that control this so we could set it to show 2-3 time or for 1-2 day

  12. Allow using a custom icon for software center

    The new branding options in Software Center are fantastic. With the ability to add a logo and web content, it really does look fantastic and users seem to have been receptive.

    The final touch would be the ability to customize the icon on the start menu through client settings. We could do that in a GPO, but it's clunky.

  13. Software: Protocol Handler for Chrome Firefox etc

    Most of us have web portals where users log tickets, issues, etc. While the application catalog was available we always had a url that we could add to our portal allowing users to browse software.

    While the development team for ConfigMgr have allowed direct linking to software using a url, it seems that browsers like chrome and firefox do not know that software: should be the default protocol handler to open Software Center. So this forces them to have to select it as the default manually.

    We would like these to be registered for all users.

    This would be mean…
