SoftwareCentral Roadmap 2023-2024
This is an overview of the planned major updates of SoftwareCentral in 2023 and 2024. The overview contains only the most important updates and we continuously develop minor functions and bug fixes, just as we continuously add functions based on our customers’ wishes and requirements.
|Can now create Win32 apps in Intune. Added support for new Windows versions under requirements. Added a new Install Status window to display the installation status for each application.
Add, copy, edit and group membership administration. On-prem groups will now show as “view only”.
|Extend our current Windows Autopilot interface to import multiple devices. Add support for importing multiple devices using a CSV file. Hide the “load from MECM” option for Intune only versions of SoftwareCentral. Option to delete Windows Autopilot devices.
Develop standard Reporting module version 1 for information, status and troubleshooting with the following: Configuration Profiles, Deployment Status, Windows Update patch level, Script status, Autopilot Status and Compliance Policies.
A version of SoftwareCentral that can run without a MECM server. It will still be hosted on a Windows Server running IIS. This will be a Beta version for our “first mover” Clients.
