inventory of -all- installed software not just the software deployed through Intune or from the Store
Today very limited reports exists for MDM, there is no report for software inventory on Mobile devices.
How is it that a Microsoft product can provide me with a complete list of installed applications for Apple OSX and iOS devices but NOT Windows 10!!! It's extremely annoying that I can tell my Apple loving boss what applications he has installed on his MacBook but I can't tell him what's installed on my MICROSOFT Surface Pro (from intune that is). Please provide the ability to see Win32 applications!
This is a critical feature to have. Will there ever be a status update for this?
Microsoft wants to take us to an administration totally in the cloud, for that we would need the same services that we had on-premise. We need some way to have a complete inventory of our devices managed by Intune and that is like SCCM at least.

I Agree. When deploying software you need to have an idea of the state of the devices deploying to and what software is already present.
I agree. Inventory is horrible in Intune. If you don't have SCCM, the inventory is useless you need a software for this.

better inventory is important
What's the status of this capability request? Is it in progress, not being considered, or backlogged, etc.? A client has stopped it's investigation of InTune due to this gap. 280 lost EMS E3 licenses.
From a customer who went with another product: "Sadly many of the features that we needed Intune for have been removed by Microsoft. Due to these features being removed, we were forced to go with another product that had the features that we needed. One of the main features was the software inventory feature that we needed to have in place ASAP. "
There are several user voices that refer to this issue.
If company wants to move to Modern Management, definitively a full overview of the installed applications and updates is a must.
Updates are not mentioned in this post, but I think that this is definitively an information that Intune should know.
How can you otherwise know which devices are not being patched?

The Silverlight console has been almost demolished and Microsoft is pushing very hard to move us to the Intune console. But seriously, I wonder which enterprise can work with an MDM system that's not even able anymore to provide a list of Win32 applications installed on a PC??? The Silverlight console was no marvel of engineering but it somehow did it's job (albeit slowly). The Azure based console is a joke with half of it's features missing!
With regrets, we are leaving that sinking boat and going for a 3rd party solution.
We are currently migrating our Windows 10 clients from Intune PC client to Intune MDM. Unfortunately on the Azure portal there is no list of all installed software like there was in the Intune classic portal.
The only thing I can see is the installed software that was pushed/made available. But if a user installs software themselves we are unable to see that.
When is this feature coming to Intune on Azure? How is possible that this feature is available on the old portal and not on the new portal?
application inventory needs to list all applications and updates installed on all devices, specifically Windows OS/ 10 devices. Currently for WIndows 10 devices Intune inventory only shows certain apps.
I've tried to use this feature in the console and it doesn't show all apps installed on our managed phones.
On our fleet of phones we have deployed a managed app, but it seems when users download from the Apple App store or Google Play, it is not recorded in intune as being installed on the phone. Only users that download from company portal are recorded. Our users need the flexibility of downloading where they like. How can intune accurately report on managed apps downloaded from the other stores?
From yesterday, throught the "Discovered apps" menu (see Home > Microsoft Intune > Devices > All devices > select on device from list then click on "Discovered apps" ), it is possible to view all installed applications on iOS 11.3 mobile devices.
For iOS 11.2.6 and older or Android 8.1.0 and older, we can only see the software deployed through Intune or from the Store.

Something we're struggling with too. With the move towards modern management, coming from ConfigMgr, a lot of our customers are asking us for a complet Software Inventory report.
For me this is a legit question, company managed devices should be under full control. Windows 10 has already support builtin for this with Win32AppInventory...
@cathy-moya @75907170-cathy-moya @cathy moya, your comment on Sep 22 2017 does not address the issue nor do I think you're understanding what we are requesting. We want to see WIN32 programs (e.g. the list of installed programs that will show up under Program and Features in Windows 10) in addition to Modern/Windows Store apps in the Software Inventory. Your solution/response tells us how to see what apps were downloaded and installed via Intune.
Currently, we recognize that the software inventory information of the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) application can be obtained by a company and personal registration, however, the desktop application cannot be acquired by a current function.
Therefore, we hope you to provide the software inventory information for desktop applications for the customers aiming at security monitoring on the admin side.
Thank you for your consideration.
@Cathy Moya, in line with everyone else requesting reporting of _all_ programs installed that a user can see in Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, my client too is stuck with the Classic Portal simply because Windows 10 devices just aren't capable of reporting this information via MDM Enrolment. This is the sole reason why they must deploy the Intune Software Client and can't yet fully move to the Azure portal.
It is a royal pain in the backside having to manually export and collate software reports for Windows 10 devices from Intune Classic, and MacOS/iOS/Android apps from Azure/PowewrBI.
The million-dollar question: When will we see full app reporting in Azure for Windows 10 devices also?
@Cathy Moya: Thanks for the comment. The problem is that Intune only lists "managed modern apps". This does not reflect ALL applications / software installed on that device; it's actually missing most installed applications.
Can we please have an update on this. This should be standard functionality.
