    • Applications should evaluate Requirements before detection

      It makes no sense that application detection is evaluated when requirement are not met. Result is application that cannot comply when detection fails due to ie missing features

          • Ability to test settings for deployment notifications

            It would be very helpful to be able to test the configuration for end-user notifications when putting together a software update package or other application deployment. Since there are several configuration settings which can affect what the end-user will see, it would be great if we could visually demo/test the current configuration so we know what the end-user will actually see.

            • Please add Package ID as a default column to 'applications' node under Software Library

              Application models have package ID's just like Packages have package ID's. Package ID is a default column for packages but not for Applications. Adding this column to the defaults makes it easier to use to correctly identify Applications when multiple names are similar or mistyped etc...

              • SCCM 1702

                Let us see the discovery timeframes as an optional column under Administration - Discovery Methods. It'll save the admin time drilling into each discovery method to get the frequency etc. which can be very helpful during troubleshooting.

                  • ConfigMgr Intune administration from a mobile device designed application.

                    So some of my mobile device admins came to me today and asked if with CM integrated Intune they could have a mobile version of the CM2012 console so that they could do basic MDM administration when on call. So locking/unlocking phones, adding a user to the Intune enrolment collection, adding enrolled devices to collections for various device policies, wipe/retire, switching a device from personal to company owned etc. While generally Intune in CM2012 is a pretty good option, having to always RDP in to do something is not always practical for admins that are outside office hours or awayā€¦

                    • Deploy meltown/spectre related updates not in Monthly CU

                      When a ciritcal patch (ex: spectre/meltdown) is released do not put it in the Monthly CU. But release it as a single KB. The 2018-01 CU's for win10 and 7 are a mess.. Powershell ISE crash with dot net fix, juniper vpn client crashes on win10 with the CU. Give us admins the power to open up a CU and pull a single KB out to avoid issues but still be able to deploy the CU minus that one KB.

                      • Fix Support Center on running app deployment eval cycle remotely

                        When Support Center runs App Deployment Evaluation cycle locally, it uses Schedule 121, which is OK. However, when itā€™s connected to remote machine, it uses Schedule 123, which was deprecated at some point.

                        Future release of Support Center should always use schedule 121.

                        • Add Description to Distribution Point Configuration Status Screen

                          We use the description field to describe where the DP is located in the world, due to our naming convention not containing the location in the asset name . When performing monitoring I'd like to see the description field from the Administration\Distribution Points pane carried through to the Monitoring\Distribution Status\Distribution Point Configuration Status. This would make it easy to see which locations DP has an issue rather then switching to the Administration pane.

                                • Nested task sequence different user targets

                                  Presently nested task sequences only run under a single context. There are some workloads that it would be helpful if a child task sequence could run under a different context. For example, the system account of the computer may not have sufficient rights to add an object to an AD group, but capturing administrative credentials and passing to a child task sequence would facilitate this function.

                                  • import multiple applications at one time

                                    I always have three version of Flash to import. Flash for Active-X, Firefox, and Chrome. I'm just using Flash as an example.

                                    All of the installers are .msi I'd like to create a folder called "sources" place all of my .msi files in the "sources" folder then click import. The import wizard would import all of the .msi applications and place the source .msi in a target folder automatically for deployment. Maybe include a template in the import wizard. The template would be the same for all imported .msi applications. Example install for Device, Only Show notifications for restarts, Silent/Hiddenā€¦

                                    • Add User Categories to application list (column and search)

                                      Would really great addition, if we can have ability to sort and search application based on User Categories. In large organizations where thousands applications exists, using filters in Software Center is only way to make user life easier. However managing categories is really difficult, since we need to actually enter app properties to see what categories are assigned. making exact copy in admin categories is one way to do it, but I don't think admin categories were created to be a shadow copy of user categories.
