  1. allow custom tabs ms-windows-store://pdp additionally to http://

    can you please allow ms-windows-store://pdp as a link in the custom tabs? now it is only allowed to have http:// and https:// links as a custom tab.
    If you allow this, we can open the Store App in the Software Center, as a single point of app/application selection/install for the Endusers.

  2. Add a Date Modified for each app to be added as a column in Software Center installation status

    Users are accustomed to seeing ā€œLast Run Timeā€ in RAP and it was easy to sort by that column to see apps installed by date. The ā€œDate Modifiedā€ appears to be the ā€œlast run timeā€ in Software Center but we have to click on each app in the Installation Status tab to see the date modified info.

  3. Show download status of 'pre-download content' enbled upgrade task sequences in Software Center

    Show download status of 'pre-download content' enbled upgrade task sequences in Software Center, e.g. 'Available 0% downloaded' -> 'Available 100% downloaded'. I have quite offten users running away from office and trying to run the upgrade via VPN, but the content is not fully downloaded.

  4. Approval workflows for Software Center

    Approval portal for software and image requests. Have the user's manager, LOB tech lead, procurement, or the app owner (or combo of many) provide approvals for software or a Windows feature release. Ex. an LOB tech lead could provide approvals for all Windows Fall Creators updates to his/her LOB, thereby first ensuring all LOB apps have been certified for the build.

  6. Ability to customize Application catalog

    It would be very nice and useful for many customers to have the ability to customize the application catalog site in terms of custom backgrounds/icons or page layout.

  7. Featured apps to Software Center

    There are always some applications that you would like to highlight to your users. On the Software Center tab of the application properties, you can select: Display this as a featured app and highlight it in the company portal. The similar feature should be available also with Software Center.

    The admin should be able to define some applications as featured apps and they would then be the first apps in the Software Center. And also with some additional icon for featured apps like the new apps have.

  8. Make 'All' and 'Required' in Software Center look like buttons

    Even though this is also partially a matter of end-user training, a lot of our users don't seem to realize that the words 'All' and 'Required' are clickable to filter. When telling someone they should select 'All' instead, they select 'All' from the category filter instead of clicking on the word 'All'.

    So just a small UI change to make them more user-intuitive :)

  9. Software Center: Log-File view Button

    it would be **** to have a Button in the "new" Software center to open a log-file with a Summary of the last steps that are run on a system, like for a SW installation, in a end-User readable context.
    example:
    SW Policy received
    SW downloaded success
    SW install started
    SW install success (or return code 3016)
    SW has a reboot pending
    etc.

  10. New Software Center - Add new dropdown to filter user and device deployed application

    In new software center. we can see both user and device based available deployments inside application tab. it's more difficult to identify which one is device and which one is user based targeted.

    If we add one more column to filter the deployment like user and device.

    Could the Actions tasks be added to Software Center? It would save some steps refreshing content.

  13. SelfService Portal - application and printer driver delivery and mapping for Mac OS X from SCCM

    Add support for Self Service for Mac OS X to deploy application and printer drivers. As apple devices are not manage from GPO perspective and SCCM support for Mac OS X is not greate.

  14. Improve application and task sequence behavior with SSD Hard Drives (metadata race conditions)

    When a new system initially gets the SCCM Client installed and runs its initial scan for applications, machines with SSD Hard Drives (and even some machines without that are 'too fast') end up in a condition where the metadata failed to fully load. In this scenario, applications end up not getting listed in Software Center that the machine would otherwise be eligible (or even required) to have.
    Modifying code found online, we have a Baseline Configuration that runs on systems to detect applications with missing metadata and then re-run the scan with a delay added; this resolves the problem andā€¦

  16. Add a refresh button or icon in the Software Center to refresh ConfigMgr client policies and software center panel

    Add a refresh button or icon in the Software Center to refresh ConfigMgr client policies and software center panel.

    This icon could, be for instance, be located in the sidebar or somewhere else.

    Once the user click on the refresh button, this will:
    - Run configmgr client actions like "Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle" or some others.
    - Refresh the Software Center panel

  17. Catalog / Software Center should be usable by the blind

    Screen reading assistants can't parse the app catalog - it just says "Silverlight" over and over. This isn't acceptable - web pages need to be usable by the blind.

  18. Expand Deep Linking to other "Installable" items

    The links to applications feature in 1702/1706 is great! Could this be expanded to other items that are "installable", i.e. Packages, Software Updates, OS Task Sequences?

  20. Possibility to launch the software updates dialog directly instead of the "balloon"

    Many users tend to miss the balloon notifying them of available updates, when the deadline hits, they get surprised by the coming restart.
    We'd like the possibility to launch the updates dialog directly, without having the user to click on the balloon, forcing the users to make an active choice whether to postpone the update or install it directly.
