It would be great to have a third time value for the time when the content start to download in the deployment. Like "Deployment Starttime", "Deployment Deadline" and "Deployment Download Time"
It would also be great, if the Content in the Client Cache would be stored with the Content GUID.
That woul help for Troubleshooting, easy Access the Cache, and if you deploy the Software twice the Content would be downloaded twice. We saw this behavior by deploying the Software as "hidden" with a Deadline in the future, hust to prestage the Content on the Client. Than have a second deployment of the same application to install the application at a specific time.
That would also help to prevent bad user experience. E.g when you deploy a Software with several GB of Content and de deployment arrives at the Client, the user will klick install immediately and than have to wait for the Content to be doanloaded. That could take some time if the users device is conneted via VPN or a slow Network.

Could be accomplished by "Install at shutdown". Like when Software upodates got installed via WSUS.
