                Would love to have the reboot notifications stay there until the user acknowledges them (if a user is logged in of course) until the final countdown hits. Then it just stays up.

                      Would love to see CVE information pulled in as metadata so we can provide reporting to our InfoSec teams based on CVE (since that seems to be all they care about lately).

                          While not exactly what you are looking for, you could use this solution I posted as a possible workaround: https://deploymentramblings.wordpress.com/2017/05/22/configmgr-user-device-affinity-uda-collection-query/

                            I would add to this that it should display (in the console) the last date/time that the data was refreshed in ConfigMgr.

                              Doing this everywhere in the console would be expensive/difficult. Rather than wait to make any improvement until the time we can fix it all… I’m curious what the top 10 most important places to fix are. I’m thinking we fix those first, and then go from there.

                              Open any wizard on a surface pro in an RDP window. Pick that one...

                                This idea has a flaw in it in that we don't really want people to initiate an Uninstall of the software. Instead, it would be better to allow a direct "Reinstall" action which could either be as simple as an Uninstall followed by an immediate re-evaluation of the software to complete the re-install, or possibly a 3rd "Reinstall" command configuration within the application.

                                This of course would require that both the Install and Uninstall command parameters be filled out (or a custom Reinstall command).

                                Since this would be user initiated, Maintenance Windows should be automatically overwritten as it could be assumed that Required software is, well, Required. Think of AV software, etc. This is required software and we really don't want to wait for a maintenance window to get that software back.

                                This could be extended as a Deployment Intent as well. Right now we have "Install" and "Uninstall". Adding a "Reinstall" would allow ConfigMgr Admins to force a reinstall to a collection of systems based upon Compliance Settings Baseline/CI Non-Compliance. This then becomes a very powerful tool combination to automatically detect software issues and issue a reinstall to repair them all without End User or Support Staff intervention.

                                      Would also be nice to expand the input box into a larger text box so you can view the entire command.

                                        I would like to see this capability for inaccessible systems as well. For example, create a Client Policy for the next time the system is online (needs to work for Workgroup Systems also) to have the ConfigMgr Agent on the client compress and copy all log files up to the Site Server (Log File Location specified in Client Settings). This allows you to collect log files from any managed systems regardless of your individual permissions to the system itself since it leverages the ccmexec process for access.
