  1. Extend MDM MSI deployment

    I would like the MDM MSI deployment (to MDM enrolled Win8.1+ clients) to be extended. Currently, only single MSI's are supported, I'd like this to include MSI's with .cab's, MSP files to patch installed MSI apps, and to be able to deploy .exe installers.

    • Support for deploying App-V packages

      Right now people have to use the MSI packages generated by the App-V sequencer, rather than having native handling for the .AppV package format as SCCM does. This means that people have to resort to powershell scripting, or squeezing scripts into MST transforms in order to use App-V features such as custom configuration files or connection groups.

      Also the MSI packages are very unreliable since they were mainly created for test scenarios rather than live deployments - for example they fail to uninstall when an application is in use, and you have to remove the previous version manually before installing…

          Hi, Michael,
          - In Standalone Intune, unfortunately, there is not yet support for deploying Mac apps. This is on the roadmap, but we don’t have dates to share at this time. Here’s a TechNet blog about our current Mac support and also how it applies to Hybrid. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/microsoftintune/2015/11/23/introducing-intune-support-for-mac-os-x-management/
          - Configuration Manager does support app deployment – instructions here. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj687950.aspx
          - Hybrid users can deploy apps in the same way as Configuration Manager if they use teh full Mac client, but it cannot be done with MDM yet.

        • Document XML configuration templates for Microsoft mobile apps for usage with Mobile App Configuration policies

          It would be extremely useful if there would be some documentation library that had information about what fields etc can be pre-configured with a Mobile App Configuration policy for the Managed Apps, or even all Microsoft mobile apps.

          For instance, a customer of mine want to populate the Dynamics CRM app with the server address so that end users don't have to know which one to use.

          • Priority based Application deployment

            Hi, It will be good if Intune provide feature of application deployment according to priority because some applications needs some prerequisite application to be deployed first.

            • Support software deployments via package installers

              Windows 10 supports package installers like apt-get in Linux. Find more aoubt thins in thins TechNet article http://blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2014/08/23/weekend-scripter-powershell-and-chocolatey.aspx
              Please support software deployments via those packages in Intune.

              Or at least support executing powershell scripts in Intune.

              With this function it would be realy easy to deploy Software like Java, Adobe Reader, Notebat++ and so on without packageing own packages for each update and also without finding out how to perform silent installs for all of them.

              • Native deployment of provisioning packages as deployment type

                The ability to deploy provisioning packages by Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune as a deployment type. This will introduces a lots of new opportunities to deploy/configure Windows (Mobile) 10 clients.

                • Ability to approve Surface Pro firmware updates

                  I was told by Microsoft Intune support team to request this feature in the Intune Feedback site because there is no way to approve New Surface Pro firmware updates. When an Intune agent is installed you cannot install the firmware updates because they do not see it. As soon as the agent in uninstalled the firmware update shows up in Windows Update

                      Today we released support for assigning Office 365 ProPlus apps to devices that run Windows 10. Does that count as “adding predefined deployment packages”? Or is there something we’re missing here? If you think we covered it, I’ll mark it complete.

                    • Software Center

                      Add a program similar to Software Center from SCCM to manage updates and software as it more simple and user-friendly, also add a notification in the taskbar when updates are available instead of a triangle over the Intune icon.

                      Many Thanks

                            • Make uploaded applications or certificates downloadable for troubleshooting or verification purposes

                              It would be very helpful to be able to download the applications, certificates etc which are uploaded to Intune. I don't think much more words are needed in this case, and all of us can think of many reasons why you would like to inspect deployed applications, certificates, XML's etc. before the actual deployment. In this case a certain MSI is giving issues suddenly, being able to download said MSI would help a lot in the troubleshooting and fixing process.

                                  • Simplified Applocker whitelisting

                                    I´d like to see a more convenient way of managing Applocker whitelisting. We´re currently deploying a restrictive applocker solution in an enterprise environment. Currently users has to send in request to helpdesk to whitelist their blocked applications. IT operations then has to edit the Applocker XML´s manually (+ maintain version control), test/validate and report back to the end users. It get´s even more time consuming when dealing with unsigned EXE´s and MSI´s. We´ve noticed that even larger software vendors are a bit sloppy with the signing part.
                                    It would be really convenient if all blocked applications and scripts would show…

                                    • Ability to search apps from the store instead of pasteing URL

                                      Like some other MDM's it would be helpful if admin could just search the app from the app store (inside intune) and select it. App metadata should be inserted automatically too.

                                      • Prevent first Sync of Mailbox without Wifi

                                        Hello,
                                        if a user set up a new device and is only connected to a metered network it is not very funny when he sync his 50 GB Mailbox to the new device. So it would be awesome if you could configure Outlook that it would only sync the last two weeks or 500 MB in a cellular and when the user is connected via wifi outlook sync the rest.

                                        Best Regards

                                        • Auto-populate app icon/logo when adding line-of-business apps

                                          When adding line-of-business (LOB) apps, the app icon/logo is not automatically populated. It would be good to be able to retrieve the app icon from the app file instead of having to manually upload the icon.
