  1. AutoVPN profile does not have an AlwaysOn option in SCCM VPN profile Wizard

    There is no option in SCCM VPN profile wizard for AlwaysON autovpn solution. Both HP companies are around 300,000 users trying to implement autoVPN solution and need to have this option added.
    There has been already discussions with the PM's around this subject.

  2. Task Sequence Property - Software Center class

    Task Sequence Property - Software Center class
    Currently, Task Sequences only show up under OS Deployments list. There are many people who utilize task sequences for application based deployments and setups on systems out there. For it to only show here on the new Software Center makes it confusing for end users.

    Solution: Dropdown menu on Task Sequence properties to tag it for either the OS Deployments or Application categories on software center. This way, it can easily be controlled where it needs to show up.

  3. More control of the Software Center

    Give us the possibility to
    a) do a fine configuration centrally of the SW Center
    e.g. sorting order, list view, filters, etc.
    b) keep users settings of the SW Center
    e.g. list view, sorting, tabs
    c) provide more detail status
    e.g. why "Waiting to install" ?

  4. Software Center 'Uninstall' option not always available

    This issues shows for me from time to time but it seems to show mostly with available deployments and on the old Software Center. If there is only one title in the 'Installed Software' tab you generally can't select the uninstall option as it is grayed out. This seems to commonly happen when i switch to that tab but if there is multiple applications I am able to click on a different one and return to the newly installed one and 'uninstall' becomes available and when there is only one on that tab you can't 'refresh' the code to validateā€¦

  5. Stronger user notification when software installs are pending

    On the lock screen - create a message that says: you have software ready to install in XX days (or by xx date, yy time) - when software is available and waiting for the install deadline. This way it is visible to users as they come back from lunch or meeting or bio.

    Even better if you can make the screen change color (GAR) as the date gets closer ...

  6. Change Custom Tab from using IE Engine

    I would like the ability to be able to change the browser engine that is used in the Custom Tab in Software Center. Currently it is using IE and I would like to be able to change it to use another browser. I prefer Chrome but would at least settle for Edge.

  7. Allow user messaging

    It would be nice to have a ability to show custom messages to inform the user that a software installation is in progress and the computer must not be restarted or disconnect from the network.
    Something similar to outlook notifications.
    This should be specific for each package/application; and it should be available at least at begin/end of installation (or even in case of error)

  8. Fix problem with Task Sequences not showing Software Center with Multiple Users logged in

    When you have multiple users logged in on a Machine. Task Sequences only show for the user that first logged in.

    When calling Task Sequences from PowerShell, the same behaviour is observable, only the first user can call the TSs.

  9. Change the way the new tag is used in software center

    There is the great functionality of tagging "new" software in the software center and showing this software right at the top of all apps. Today this tag is dependent on the date the deployment has been created and or set to be available for 7 days as a global setting. It would be great to show this tag from a users perspective. This would also align to the often used concept of having a collection with the software deployed and the members get added on demand. So if a customer is ordering a software it is shown on his clientā€¦

  10. Show update installation progress percentage

    Show the installation progress percentage for installing Microsoft Updates in Software Center, as is being shown in the native Windows Update App starting Windows 10 1709.

    Especially for bigger Cumulative Updates, it's hard to guess when it will be done without a progress indicator.
    If you install the .msu files from the Update Catalog, you'll see a progress bar in the GUI - that should be translated to installation percentage.

  11. Download size in Software Center

    As currently as version 1702, the download size for all of the applications and packages in Software Center show "less than 1 MB" and won't show the correct size until after you start the install. This has been happening for a long time.

  12. Extend 'Share' feature in Software Center to Task Sequences

    Extend the 'Share' function to Task Sequences. In other words, allow task sequences to be shared, just like Applications can be.

    Use case for this would be for a feature update task sequence.
    We'd like users to be able to double click on a desktop shortcut that takes them right to the TS within the software center. Currently, we get around this by creating an application that executes a powershell command to execute the task sequence, but this is not ideal. Native Share support for task sequences would be ideal for this. #mmsmoa

  13. Disable toast notifications per depoyment

    It would be of benefit to our organization to specify whether or not a deployment will display a toast notification stating that "New software is available". Reason is that we sometimes we are required to deploy a newer minor reversion that appears as a full application, but it may be an application the user already has installed. An example of that would be Google Chrome. The user will receive a popup notification that new software is available, but when they go into the Software Center nothing "new" to them will be displayed.

    We have consider disabling all notifications in theā€¦

  14. New Software Center: Hide already installed packages (not only applications)

    In the 1802 release, the option to hide already installed software was added but only for applications, not packages.
    It'd be a good idea to hide already installed packages, in order to keep the software center easier to the end user understand what still need to be installed.
    Thanks in advance.

  15. Allow Software Center Link to open in other browsers

    Currently the "softwarecenter:" links to apps in Software Center only open in Internet Explorer.
    Ideally this should work in all browsers, but at least Edge.

  16. Foreground color for Softwarecenter

    When choosing white colour schema you have white letters with white foreground. Would be great if we can choose the foreground colour or if the letters keep black even when you mark Items on white colour schema.

  17. Scan for new software in software center

    We pin the software center to the Start Menu in Windows 10. We would like there to be a user friendly option, say a "Check for new software!" button that they can press that triggers the appropriate policy actions to run behind the scenes. It's cumbersome to have to go into the client and trigger the policy options manually.

    I have even included a screenshot of how it should look!

  19. Suppress Operating System in-place upgrade icon in Software Centre until pre-cached content is completed:

    Currently we are doing in-place upgrades via a task-sequence delivered by SCCM which appears as an available install in Software Centre.

    We would like to either hide or grey-out the 'Available' install operating system icon within Software Centre until the pre-cached files have been delivered to the device, to prevent the user from clicking on the install button before the files have pre-cached to the machine..

    We have disabled the toast notifications warning the users that a new application is available and do not want this upgrade to be delivered as a required installation as this would then be anā€¦

  20. Application Detection - Add Return Code Option - Clear Install History

    Add a custom Return for applications. "Clears Install History"

    I'm currently deploying office 365, which when launched, prompts users to close apps and continue, however they can click cancel. If they click Cancel, it returns a code to CM which is then logged as a failure. I would like to have a Return Code option in the App DT that says, it the App returns code "123456", then exit out as if it never ran, no failure, no success. So in the software center, the icon says "Install" instead of "Retry", and not show a previous failure. It makes ourā€¦
