  1. Fix Supercedence Uninstall bug

    There is definitely a bug with using the Supercedence Uninstall feature that causes the old application to be removed but the new application does not install.

    Scenario (confirmed this happens with a variety of applications):
    - Office 2013 is a required deployment
    - Office 2016 is ready to deploy, so we create a supercedence with Uninstall
    - Maintenance Window is Mon-Fri 5PM-5AM, all day Sat/Sun
    - Deploy Office 2016 as Required starting Friday 5PM, with a Deadline of the NEXT Friday at 5PM
    - The Monday after deployment start (deadline not reached yet) Office 2013 will have uninstalled as expected,…

    • Prestaged content locally on computer

      Hello,

      It will be great if we can prestaged content without operating system, and paste this content on computer. When we start the task sequence, sccm look if content are on the computer like : "C:\PrestagedContent".

      If content are there, he will install app with this content and not download from DP. If app have new revision, sccm will download new revision from DP. if content is not here, he will download content from is DP

      It will be a solution for task sequence which need network (device variable, etc), poor network (site on Africa for example) and task sequence…

      • Allow Slash (/) Character in Organizational Units for Group Discovery

        When Group Discovery for the whole Domain is activated and there are Organizational Units containing the Slash Character in the Name, you get "failed to bind to Container" Errors in SCCM.

        As long a Slash is an allowed character in LDAP, SCCM should be able to process these OUs correctly.

        • Pause download software center

          you just started to install an app (manual install and not required/deadline) (ie. Visual Studio that is 6GB) and you need that bandwidth for something else (copy files from client to server, etc). it would be interesting to have a pause button that you can resume when that bandwidth is not needed anymore

          • IsSupervised field needs to be set when device is enrolled after a wipe/reset

            This is a bug that needs fixing.

            Using ConfigMgr 1710 in a hybrid configuration with Intune and devices synced from Apple's DEP after the initial enrollment if you wipe the device to enroll for a new user the IsSupervised field does not get set and the Activation Bypass options get greyed out.

            Having a logged a call a workaround is possible by manually adding a record to the MDMDeviceProperty table but when you are managing 750+ devices with a high staff turnover manually adding this record every time really isn't practical.

            The support team have told me to add this…

            • Check for running exe and is in Presentation mode

              in current Technical Preview is integrated the Check for running exe.
              But as an improvement it will usefully to integrate the Check for Client is in Presenation mode.
              Like the PSapp Deployment Toolkit. with this two things, it will greatly improve the development time of Deployment of Applications.

                • Client status icon should be Green for online, yellow for offline, red for dead/inactive and grey for broken/misoconfigured/requires help

                  The current '2 color' method of identifying client status icon in the console should also include yellow and red.
                  Client status icon should be Green for online, yellow for offline (but still active), red for dead (more than 30 days) inactive and grey for broken/misconfigured/requires assistance clients.
                  Also make the icon column as a searchable criteria in the console.

                  • Install applications on startup or shutdown

                    we just search for the option to install oder uninstall applications and packages at shutdown /logoff.
                    when we upgraded from office2013 to 2016 the users got crazy because office 2013 was uninstalled and than 2016 installed. in the time between uninstall and install nobody was able to work with office.

                    this is our greateat wish for sccm

                    • WMI Query Builder for Task Sequence Options

                      In the Task Sequence/Options window, I can add a condition for a particular step by adding an "if" criterion that matches a WMI query, similar to building a device collection. This way, particular steps in a task sequence would only execute if a device happened to be in the selected AD OU or another, for example.

                      But in the WMI Query builter for device collections includes a click-here type of builder, whereas the query window in the task sequence just has a blank text box.

                      While I could either write the query by hand (and hope it's correct) to see…

                        • Office 365 Update from CDN

                          I'd like to propose something similar to the Software Updates Feature
                          (If software updates are not available on distribution point in current, neighbor or site boundary groups, download content from Microsoft Updates) but for Office 365 CDN updates.

                          That way IT can control when newer versions of Office 365 are deployed on internet managed clients without having to publish a 1gb package on a Cloud Distribution Point monthly.

                              • Task Sequence Allow Application Installs by Administrative Categories

                                We'd like to see the following functionality added to the Install Application Task Sequence step.

                                Install application according to administrative categories.

                                We as a point of practice ALWAYS include some kind of Administrative Category in the Applications we package in SCCM it would be nice to have a way to leverage that in something more than just filtering in Configuration Manager searches

                                dynamic variable list is kind of nice but we have to set a variable list in EVERY Collection we want to deploy said applications to and if we have to add or remove an application we have to…

                                • Allow multi-language packages to be chosen by the user

                                  Some packages (example, Office365) have multi language options. Deploying Office 365 is a pain, as you either make multiple applications (one for each language) using the same source folders, or run it as a task sequence to pick the language based on variables, or have separate packages, using a bucket load of disk space on the servers. Could we not have an option to set it so when a deployment reaches a PC, the user can select which one they want, and just run that? I don't know about anyone else, but we have some users in other countries that…

                                  • Be able to create a device collection from a SUP deployment in Monitoring for non-compliant machines

                                    In monitoring be able to create a device collection from the In-Progress tab for machines that are non-compliant or failed the deployment in order to run the same deployment again, but only for machines that failed or need to be run again for whatever reason (maintenance window expired).

                                    • Collection search function should have history

                                      Often when we search collections we are searching for something we've searched for before. The search box should maintain a history of previous searches.

                                      • UDA & Approval Improvements

                                        I created a UV item for one component of this and supported others that involve some of these items but I think it makes sense to have one that encapsulates all items.

                                        1. Be able to specify the number of Primary Devices that can be associated with users. Being allowed to have more than one device associated with a user makes the deployment of licensed apps more precarious.

                                        2. Allow e-mails for Approval Requests and allow the flexibility for creating a workflow for multiple approvers.

                                        3. Be allowed to do Approvals for the User and the Device. I'd love to…
