    I agree, this should be based on a fix value, not the random time the deployment happens to be created at. It should be based on the ADR evaluation schedule.

    It would be nice to have this, I end up creating deployments "12" months in the future for mandatory time.

    I would also ask, that when checking for content availability, it only checks for content were the step is applicable, or the model is applicable. If I am imaging a Dell Latitude 5591, don't throw up an error because you cannot find the content for the Dell Latitude E6430U model. Some of our sites can take a long time to replicate packages, I would rather not have ALL OSD blocked until the driver package is 100% replicated.

    Ran into this issue today. We have a collection based on the AD Computer Description field. The field was cleared in AD, and the computer didn't drop out of the collection because the discovery field in the system class was not cleared. I had to delete the SCCM record and let the client report in again to clear this.

    This is something I do to optimize my OSD. Including setting the restart timer to 0 with the variable.

    Thanks for the feedback. Updating status to noted.

    The download behavior is from Software Center and would hold true for any deployment using Download and Execute so changing for Task Sequences may have knock on effect for SWD etc.

    One thing you may want to look at it our Task Sequence Pre-Cache available in 1611 Tech Preview https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/get-started/capabilities-in-technical-preview-1611#pre-cache-content-for-available-deployments-and-task-sequences – that allow you to pre-cache all statically referenced content ahead of availability time so no download is seen and all content is local. You can also conditionally download OS Upgrade Packages

    Bob - We may not always want to pre-cache content, and I think it would be GREAT if you also provided a download status for all in-progress downloads via Software Center, if there are 9 patches and 3 software packages in the download queue, show the download status for all of them! The task sequence should just "aggregate" these when running a Task Sequence.

    This would be huge. We use TS for our Office 365 and CRM rollouts, and don't really want users logging back on until it is finished.
