Ability for end users to uninstall apps using Company Portal
We would like end users to be able to uninstall applications using the Company Portal. Right now you appear to be able to select Reinstall, but you cannot remove an app once it has been installed unless you have Admin permissions and can manually remove it using Control Panel.
How is this not available, I thought I was just missing it so I started googling! yes to this feature!!!
This is like a house with no bins. It's completely unsustainable. If I were to write requirements for a user self-service portal, it would start like this:
1. User can install an application.
2. User can uninstall an application.
3. Everything else...
All the great ideas that came from SCCM Application objects and you forgot this fundamental one? It's a requirement to add an uninstall string to Win32 apps, yet Microsoft doesn't give users the ability of Self-Service Uninstalls when required.
This was raised back in 2018 and in 2021, the feature is still not available, it defies logic.
This is basic Application functionality. If you install a Package the ability to uninstall is also required.
Yes please, LMFAO at the logical thinkers at Microsoft
We need this. Why hasn't it been implemented?

Yes please make this option available!
Please add this functionality ASAP also the ability for users to interact with Available installations that cannot be automated.
We are migrating to intune as a group of schools (+20 schools with +- 5000 students). We make software available for them, somethimes we need to make different (older) versions of software available on the company portal. But if the student installs the wrong version - we are in trouble.
So yes, we need uninstall option - so that when the wrong program is installed, they can uninstall it by them selves...
Must have feature. Please vote for it in the Feedback Hub as well:

Must have feature!
When MS promoting Company Portal as alternative for Software Center it should have better option than SC. By principle if we make something AVAILABLE to user or device. User should be able to install and Uninstall. We have no issue having Reinstall option as long as the app is not installed and need one more click . But it looks strange to have Reinstall even after successful install instead of Uninstall. our app migration from SCCM to Intune is struck because of the drawbacks on two things Uninstall and Maximum size of Win32 app :(

I cannot understand.. Why have an option to make applications available for users to install on their own terms, but not have the option to install whenever they want?
It does not make any sense.
It would be incredibly good if this basic option would be implemented soon.
Absolutely necessary. If Intune allows apps to be published as "available" to the users devices, the users should also be able to uninstall them again.
This would go a long way in allowing clients to uninstall managed apps.
This is a must, please add the feature!

Customer occasionally wants this feature, so this is great when intune add this feature!
Working in IT for 20 years it's a very important feature to have especially if you need to uninstall a software that has a conflict with another. Also, this gives the ability for the end user to help themselves first before calling IT support.
Welcomed feature for self administration
Would be very useful to Elections Canada.
