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.Bryce Steel commented
After installation(s) complete that require a restart, we would like to see the "Your computer is about to restart" notification window open and remain visible until a user clicks the "Hide" button (with perhaps similar increasing frequency-triggers leading up to the non-hideable portion of the countdown even).
The toast notifications from the SCCM client / Software Center have proven ineffective at capturing our user's attention. While we currently use a default 24 hour restart countdown with 4 hours non-hideable, many users simply do not notice the toast notifications during the first 20 hours. Having a toggle in Client Settings to "Show restart countdown window until user clicks 'Hide' button" would save us many user complaints / help desk tickets!
