There should be a per-application or per-deployment option like there is with software update deployments.

I’m re activating this one based on the fact that we don’t show the intrusive reboot countdown after the software was installed. We still have some work to do here to make this experience meet the requested behavior.Anonymous commented
I'm not sure how 'disruptive' Software Updates is, unless an enterprise has very picky users. In that case, it might be time for some tough love. We all make sacrifices in the interest of the enterprise. We deploy updates once am month over the weekend and give users with mobile devices an extended two-week deadline to install that month's updates...after which they are forcefully installed and the systems forcefully rebooted....with full user notifications. I agree that in Windows 10 the notifications are entirely inadequate, and we should be given more flexibility in how they appear. Using group policy registry change, you can extend the visibilty of toast notifications, but this change will affect ALL toast notifications. Default is 5 seconds, but you can extend up to 5 minutes. Users have the option to close them, of course. What also helps is that we send an email to users, telling them and showing them what to expect with screenshots. Users are much more tolerate with proactive communication. But Microsoft, you're not off the hook. Give us more notification control please.Anonymous supported this idea ·
