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.

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.
Adding flexibility to meet your customers needs would seem to be a positive step forward. Please enable.
A must have feature.
I actually was searching all over for this, as it seems like an obvious feature to have.
Maybe include an "available for uninstall" category. Seems nuts there is no uninstall option!
But, I'm glad it's not a configuration error on my part.
Definitely this should be implemented!
Really? Any UI that allows you to install something, must allow you to uninstall it as well. Even "Required" applications must sometimes be uninstalled and reinstalled.
Yes, you can uninstall it from Windows Settings, but then Company Portal is out of sync and will forever display error messages.

Must have feature, and it should be necessary for users to tell you this :)

It's things like this that make me grumble out a word or two every time I log into Endpoint Manager. While other companies are improving their products and services on a monthly basis, this one just lumbers along making the admins jump through hoops to perform the simplest of management tasks.
I can't understand why such "normal" things are still not possible. Microsoft pushes everything and everyone into the cloud and wants everything to be managed there, but the simplest things are not possible there. A user can install the software, but not uninstall it, in most cases not even about programs and features, depending on the context in which it was installed. If I now remove this software with admin rights, the user gets a permanent message that the software was not installed correctly, because of course the files are no longer found when Intune checks. And in Intune I also have no possibility to remove the software for a client or to mark it as not installed. This MUST be implemented, otherwise the store in the company portal makes no sense!
Agreed, just went to try it....where is it?! Software Center allows it.
I was testing an available software deployment last night, installed successfully, Company Portal shows status Installed. Today I had to uninstall via Programs and Features. Now Company Portal says "Installed Failed" - how long do I wait until the status returns to something sensible?
