    • Software Center (1602) icons are blurry

      In the new Software Center the icons in the catalog are blurry. I have attempted to upload new ICO's with better quality, but the results remain the same. Please consider resolving the quality issue and/or allowing larger icon resolutions above 250x250. The new Software Center is nice, but only if we make it that way with professional icons.

        • Allow customizable Software Center notifications for upgrade task sequences

          For Windows servicing and in-place upgrade task sequences, grant the ability to customize all fields of the popup. With 1610 custom messaging was added, but it only applies to one field. Suggestions are as follows:
          For the first one:
          • Messaging is unclear as it says "Critical software maintenance must be completed on your computer after…" when in fact it needs to be done before or by the date highlighted.
          • We were originally going to recommend rephrasing that but instead would ask to make all fields customizable inside of SCCM to tailor messaging to the organization's end users. This…

            Create a Software Center Builder similar to the Admin Console Builder application. The ability to customize the Software Center is a frequent ask from customers and this would provide the ability to customize elements to improve end user usability, such as hiding elements that may confuse customers.

              This capability is available in the 1710 release of Configuration Manager. More details available here https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2017/11/20/now-available-update-1710-for-system-center-configuration-manager/. There are a lot of different suggestions on this one. This work represents just a few:

              1. Ability to hide/show tabs
              2.Company name/Logo/Color separate from Intune
              3. Framework to add additional customizations (more quickly) in future releases based on feedback.

              If your particular comment/request is not one of these please give us the feedback through a new suggestion. We’re very interested in seeing the feedback.

              Thanks!

            • Software Center: Add support for direct link to application and direct link to installation via protocol handler.

              The new Software Center supports the "Page" command line option, but I could not find a way to jump directly to an app details page (the one that shows the Install button).

              (I'd like to change my application catalog notification tool to open softwarecenter instead of iexplore with the app details page.)

              Additionally it would be nice if the tab/page changes respecting the new command line given when software center is already open.

                  • Separate defining company logo from Intune subscription

                    If displaying the company logo and color scheme is further expanded to several end-user dialogs that are not necessarily Intune related, please enable defining a company logo to display in them without having an Intune subscription. Branded dialogs with company colors and logo are less likely to be misinterpreted and help end-users identify that the dialogs are originated from our organization's ConfigMgr and can be trusted.

                    • Enable deadline randomization for Applications and Packages in addition to software updates

                      Deadline randomization is currently in place for software updates only. We were hoping that would expand to both applications and packages as well. This would reduce the demand for applications and package installations in a shared environment (virtual). We currently have this available with software updates. We'd like to see the scope expanded to include package and applications.

                      • Software Center: Provide a console setting to remove the "Application Catalog" link from Software Center

                        Admins should be able to disable or remove the link to Application Catalog, from an end user viewpoint, we are not using the App Catalog, just Software Center. Since we’re using a 3rd party Shopping instance as well, it would be good to have a configurable option to hide Application Catalogue.

                        • New Software Center for 1706 - Options Tab -> Power Management settings do not stay ticked

                          In several 1706 environments, when users are given the option to override their power management plans, the New Software Center does not reflect them "ticking" that box once the software center is closed and re-opened. All the other settings seem to "stick". My guess is that the "Apply" button was taken away on purpose (was there in 1702) and this may have been overlooked. Please take a look and provide any information on a fix for this functionality.

                          • Software Center - Software changes dialog box details link should link through to Installation Status tab

                            Scenario:
                            - Deployment with installation deadline- End user receives a "Software changes are required' notification (balloon/toast)
                            - End user clicks the notification
                            - A dialog box opens showing the number of required changes, restart requirement and some options for scheduling
                            - When clicking view details (next to required changes) Software Center opens in the application tab

                            On the applications tab there is no indication what item the change notification is referring to. The actual purpose of the change remains unclear for the end user.

                            It would be nice if the view details link opens the Software Center in the Installation…

                                • Software Catalog - New application notification

                                  It could be great to have a notification (for users I mean) when a new application or a new version of an application is published in the software Catalog.
                                  Underline new version or special icon visible in the catalog.
                                  Little notification through SCCM client.
                                  And what about RSS ?

                                  • New Software center (1511) Application doesn’t include installation status in Application tab

                                    Application doesn’t include installation status in Application tab,
                                    In the New Software Center, there's no way to tell easily if the suggested software is installed or not. It simply shows everything. You have to click each tile individually to find if it's installed.
                                    Yes, you can find installed apps in the "Installed software" tab, but from the user-experience perspective, to compare those two tabs every time (to find what is and what isn't installed), it's not very seamless.
                                    Do you know how to fix these issue or Ms has plan improve the New software center?
                                    Thank you

                                      Hi,

                                      I noticed that our company Sophos software picked up a virus that the SCCM Endpoint software did not, can you confirm if the following virus is in your threat catalogue?

                                      VBS/DwnLdr-SPY aka Trojan.GenericKD.4228438

                                      This has been in the Sophos database since 20 April 2017

                                      • Change default Client Settings for Software Center to use the new, not old

                                        Currently, the default client settings have an option called "Use the new Software Center" and it defaults to "No".

                                        Replace this option with something that says "Use the deprecated Software Center" and default it to "No".

                                        This would mean the default behavior on new sites would be to use the New software center. Additionally, I would argue that the upgrade should make this change in the Default Client Settings for existing installs (and document the change in the release notes).

                                        • Software Center stopping for user-available-package deployments 1802 - bug

                                          Noticed since 1802 - Deployed package, deployment targeted at user collection (but running as admin). Deployment purpose 'Available'. Using new-style Software Center interface with tiles. About 3-10 seconds after user clicks 'Install', Software Center crashes with msg "SCClient has stopped working".
