      Thanks for your efforts. I'd appreciate that and even if it is ugly, I don't have to look at it once it is running. :-)

      I am not sure how to use that or even really how to better look into that further, but I'll search a bit. I am not familiar or even remotely good at understanding how to use .Net classes directly as I don't have that scripting/programming background. I could probably manipulate someone else's code if I find an example of how to do it.

      Nonetheless, if that is troublesome or takes you down a convoluted path to achieve the goal the long term would still probably be best they add it to PowerShell cmdlets directly for ease of use.

        This original description should also be expanded to understand additional logic and grouping. Beyond just selecting AND/OR we should be able to basically use parenthesis just like you would/could in a SQL statement. My simple example is from the Software Updates.

        If (Vendor == Microsoft and Update Classification == 'Security Updates') OR (Vendor == Oracle AND Update Classification == 'Update'). This type of granular logic is not available and sorely needed.

        Using the criteria the way it is today in SCCM I would end up with If (Vendor == Microsoft OR Vendor == Oracle) AND (Update Classification == Update OR Update Classification == 'Security Updates'). This is not what is intended as I would end up with All updates from EITHER Microsoft or Oracle that are EITHER 'Security Updates' or 'Updates'.

          This is very inconvenient and bothersome to us. I agree 100%. Was about to write my own, but saw yours. This is how I'd like it to play out:
          1) Enter string and hit enter to Search
          2) The results are highlighted/selected automatically as they are now
          3) Add, is now the active button, so hitting Enter key a second time will Add them to the selected resources
          4) Cursor returns to the search box to add more
          5) When finished, either click OK or use tab to get to the OK button.

            I like all of what has been mentioned here. Additional functionality would definitely be appreciated.

              I came across this today again today. Testing ContentLibraryCleanup.exe and it referenced a Package ID that I needed to find. Took me 20 minutes to find, searching through all of the nodes, finding it in None, then falling back to looking in Monitoring -> Deployments. If Package ID is still referenced for Applications, it should be displayed along with the Application in the list.

                We are prepping upgrade task sequences and need to uninstall software first, but there is not option to uninstall an application we have in SCCM as an Application. Yes, I can manually use command line, but that isn't ideal.

                  Been almost 2 years since this was "NOTED". Lets make this happen guys and gals! This would definitely be helpful. I learned so much with the Exchange console, ADAC, MDT, etc. when they do that. Anything to help automate more processes!

                  Definitely would be a welcome addition. Loved old Exchange Management Console for that as well as MDT. Additionally, if there could just be a history like in ADAC, that would also be helpful to see none wizard driven commands. Please do this.

                    Oh my goodness, I do this all the time as well. If you're fast enough you get in the search box before it moves, otherwise you hit to expand and show all results when you just wanted to search for one machine.

                        I believe you can do what you want on the end user side, by having the Catalog tab name say just "Flash Player", this is what will show to users in Software Center or App Catalog. It is just in the Admin console that Name is the unique identifying factor. Can't help you with in console, but to the clients I think you are already able.

                          Maybe this could be in addition to presentation mode, but those of us that do know use presentation mode beyond just when using PowerPoint. We use it when doing webex, gotomeeting, Skype meetings, etc. where you are sharing you desktop with others. These do not always have PowerPoint involved, but all the same I do not want to have software center as well as Outlook notifications and other windows notifications popping up all over. Presentation mode stops that from happening.

                          While having it automatically suspend these things during powerpoint presentation for convenience is nice, it should not take away from how it should be used by those that are informed. Hopefully they can do both.

                            This would be such a help! Straight auto apply drivers does NOT always get the driver you want or need. Specifying the driver packages via WMI is the ONLY way to go in my book, since "Model" variable in MDT integration is not wildcard or "like" capable without fancy scripts from Johan or Deploymentbunny. Now I need to work on reducing the number of non-INF driver install packages and they take 3/4 of my task sequence. Maybe time to convert them to be Applications to reduce the area taken up in TS.

                              I’m updating the status. For 1606 we’ve made some changes, listed below.
                              As more are added we’ll update what Tech Preview/Release they appear in.

                              Timeout scan is now configurable
                              We added a new task sequence variable to allow a configurable timeout for scan. Variable name is SMSTSSoftwareUpdateScanTimeout, default is 30 minutes. Value is set in seconds so an hour is 60×60=3600

                              Logging changes
                              In the SMSTS.log we list the log files to check for updates download and evaluation.
                              These are UpdateDeployment.log, UpdatesHandler.log, WUAHandler.log and WindowsUpdate.log

                              New Option for full scan
                              There’s a new checkbox added to the Install Updates step – ‘Evaluate software updates from cached scan results’
                              If the checkbox is on we use cached results, if the checkbox is off we do a full scan
                              Task Sequences that are upgraded will have this option checked on – this is parity with the existing behavior

                              Power management changes…
