  1. Application Catalog Customization

    What I would like to see it the ability to customize the Application Catalog a bit more. Currently you can only put your company name and change the color. What I would like to be able to do is add our company logo to the catalog to match the way you can now do it with Software Center in Configuration Manager 1710.

  2. Do something with Operating System tab

    When deploying a custom task sequence that only contains applications and no operating system it confuses our users.

    Suggest to rename Operating System tab with something else like Package Bundles. Or (after you add icon support for task sequences) have custom task sequences in the Applications tab instead of Operating Systems.

  3. error code

    When an application deployment fails from Software Center, it allows you to click "More Information". The information that is provided is just an error code, which is fine, but at least a generic description would be appreciated. I have to go and search for that code on a Microsoft page anyways, why not add it in for both myself and the end users from the start. Save some time for simple issues like, content is not available at your distribution point and such.

  5. Make uninstall and repair work better

    Make the uninstall and repair application in software center work with more than 1 deployment type. Because now the uninstall only works if 1 deploymenttype is present in the application.

    The repair option only repairs the first deployment type and then stops, would be beteer that it repairs all deployment types that are in an application or the option to do so.

  6. Company Portal Customization

    I have a customer that, besides the new features in the Software Center, needs to use the Company Portal to all the +6000 users. The question here is the lack of customization. They want to be able to customize:

    1. The two pictures that appear in the Company Portal
    2. The color Schema for the tiles in the main page of company portal
    3. The Language of the App (that can be done changing the OS language).

    They are making a great an d big investment in the new images to their users and are using a clean desktop with…

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Software Center

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
