  2. Make WVD session controller service availble in the South Africa North DC.

    Operating from South Africa I created a test VM on Windows Virtual Desktop and the response was not great considering that it was deployed it in South Africa North DC. The best RTT was measured at 226 ms whereby 150 ms or less is required for an acceptable experience. This was mainly due to the session controller service being managed from a US DC.

  3. Native Azure AD authentication without Domain

    We will take 20 steps backwards by creating an ADDS or AD server just to in the end utilize our Azure AD authentication.

    WVD should support native Azure AD join and authentication.

  4. Make it possible to deploy both desktops and RemoteApps to user at the same time.

    Right know you cant deploy both desktop and apps to an AppGroup and you cant assign two app groups in the same host pool to a user.

    Sometimes a user might need to use the web client on a public computer and login with the full desktop but on their private computer they have the remote app set up via the desktop client.

    We dont want to setup extra servers for this...

  5. Allow Azure AD-joined Host into Host Pool

    It would be beneficial to have the option to add both traditional domain-joined clients as well as Azure AD-joined devices into Windows Virtual Desktop. I think of a scenario with two separate host pools (one for each client type) where applications that may behave differently in these environments can be targeted to different groups of users.

  6. Allow Azure AD guest users to login to WVD (Azure B2B)

    Currently invited guest users from other Azure AD tenants cannot access WVD in the "inviting" AAD. We are forced to create new "twin" user accounts.

  7. Add GUI portal for managing WVD

    A lot of the Management of WVD is done in powershell and multiple different nodes in Azure portal. Add a new GUI node in azure portal for VWD management

  8. Integrate published virtual machines into myapps.microsoft.com portal

    Instead of providing another portal to end-users to connect to the published virtual clients please integrate them into the already existing myapps.microsoft.com portal.

  9. Allow to have a group for the default desktop users

    When creating a new WVD host pool, there is an option to provide the default desktop users. Can you change it so that you can enter an Azure AD or AD group as well please, as it will make it easier to add and remove users who can log onto the RDSH after the deployment rather than using PowerShell?

  10. Enforce MFA

    Hi Team,

    As per: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Windows-Virtual-Desktop/AAD-Reauthentication-MFA-enforcement/m-p/775217

    Is there a way to enforce MFA each time a user connects to WVD?

    We have 3rd party users who are to connect to our WVD environment and we need to enforce MFA.

    Optionally can we block off the client and force users to use a HTML5 compatible browser?

    We recommend Azure AD Conditional Access. Azure AD Conditional Access doesn’t have an “authenticate every single time” functionality, but they now have the sign-in frequency and browser persistence controls that should help: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/conditional-access/howto-conditional-access-session-lifetime.

    Thank you for sharing your idea we continue watching incoming votes.

  11. Make Windows 10 Multi-User available on-premises aka Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops

    Although a great part of the IT industry moves towards some kind of public/private/hybrid cloud deployment, the greater part of the industry still functions the same like 10-20 years ago, where you have a simple Database->Server->Client application which won't transform itself into a native cloud application anytime soon. These customers still have the urge for a rather simple Microsoft based OS with win32 apps deployment. RDSH was a great solution for the last years (and it still is!), but honsestly what all the RDSH/Citrix admins ever wanted, was a real Multi-User OS which wasn't Server OS based. It would solve…

  12. Add support for passwordless solutions

    With Microsoft's interest in going passwordless, and with the new public preview for FIDO2 key support, it would make sense to allow users to login to these virtual desktops and remote apps using the same passwordless solutions. Seems counterintuitive to test going passwordless, but then requiring a password using password hash sync for these vms.

  13. Build UI for on-boarding to WVD

    Currently the WVD deployment mechanism is via ARM template. This requires on big arm template to be submitted. If there are errors we need to wait 30+ to figure out and then try again

  14. Low latency solution

    WVD seems to be sending all traffic to US-East. This is plain stupid and not acceptable. The gateway and mgmt should be in the local region where my desktops are hosted.

  15. Option to change Web RDP URL

    Currently, the Web Client has an URL "https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com". Can we have an option to change this URL to our domain?

  16. Allow FSLogix profile containers to use Azure Storage file share

    Currently we have to setup an additional High-Available VM cluster if we want the profile containers to be available in a SLA approved way whenn we use file shares.

    It would be great if we could use Azure Storage to host this fileshare instead of an additional (set of ) vm(s).

  18. Wider availabilty of better NV series VMs with GPUs

    WVD is a great use case for NV series with their GPUs. However, these aren't available everywhere, and even when available some regions lag far behind others. For instance, NV is not available in UK West; NVsv3 or NVs v4 not available in UK South. Also the NVIDIA based NV series VMs are still using M60 GPUs (Maxwell based Quadro) , which are 3-4 years behind the current Turing based Quadro GPUs.

  19. Native autoshutdown and power on policies for WVD

    Using Azure DevTest labs as inspiration and the power off scheduler already available to Azure. I believe that a host pool should have a native power on and power off policy with a scheduler that can be mapped to a time zone, with the (optional) ability for desktop user to extend by 2 hours/skip the day of power management.
    My story is that I have a pool of dedicated machines that I will be providing to developers. We have an expected hours of operation of 6am to 6pm Mon-Fri but there will be sometimes when someone needs to stay back…

  20. Add the ability to disable the Device Registration/Account PRT enrollment prompt on WVD endpoints or within the client

    Allow for admins to disable the account registration prompt on WVD endpoints or client. You don't prompt on MacOS and Web Clients. Not all Windows users would like to perform account registration of their user account on their personal device. It might be confusing to them. Even if this provide them with a better experience. Please give us an option to remove the prompt.

    For education users this is very confusing and annoying. Please add an option for disabling this within Windows Virtual Desktop client or administration portal. "Don't show the 'Use this account everywhere on your device' box".

    Perhaps…
