  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.…

            • 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.

                • Have an arborescence in the Software Center

                  Ability to add some folders in the Software Center to view all available applications in a more efficient way.
                  The applications are added in those container (like the categories currently), to have a better organization of apps.

                    • Friendly/Localized names for task sequences

                      I'd like to see the ability to give Task Sequences friendly/localized named, like you can with apps/packages. In fact, replicating the entire "Application Catalog" tab of an application properties dialog in the task sequence properties dialog would be even better. This would also give the option of TS-specific descriptions/icons/keywords/categories/etc.

                      My reasoning is that our organization is effectively multi-tenant, and we're required to name our task sequences and other content with prefixes denoting department. This makes for annoying and unfriendly TS names when listed in Software Center or the task sequence list of WinPE. I see no reason why endpoints should…

                      • 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.

                        • Software Center sometimes looks for old application revisions

                          Sometimes when updating applications I notice that Software Center will still look for an old revision of the application. Application is deployed to a user collection, and even after running the user action in the client on the machine, it still looks for the old revision. If I delete that revision from the console and try to install again, it will just immediately fail because it can't find that revision. I end up having to run all the user actions and wait a few minutes in order to fix it.

                          • 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!

                            • 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.

                              • Add custom alerts to Software Center installs

                                We have some software that is rather larger, like the Adobe Suite, and it would be nice to display a message to the user depending on the program they try and install. Some users might try and install the whole suite when they are in a location with poor wireless coverage. If we could create a notification that said "Adobe Creative Suite is a large installer. Please dock your computer before performing this install."

                                That would be awesome. Another example is some programs (Adobe Acrobat DC) sometimes report as installed correctly, but really failed because PowerPoint is running. The failure…

                                    Ability to sort applications in Software Center not from the "Sort by:" pull down, but rather by clicking on the Heading of the section you want to sort. This would be more in line with how Excel tables allow you to sort by field by clicking on the column header.

                                        Would like to be able to use copy paste features in the software center.

                                        • LockScreen Integration & User Information improvement

                                          For Software Center or the agent should it be possible to bublish the most important Information like reboot times, Service Releases or big Updates Wave where are available directly to the LockScreen of Windows 10. The user Information improvement should also be better in the Software Center directly.

                                          Another cool feature should be the Integration of requestable Localadmin Priviledge out of the Software Center. Like a JIT Integration for Primary users. so that we can remove local adminrigts completly an let SCCM controll a requestable Access.
