  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. Allow RBAC/Deleguation within Portal UI (for service desk teams actions)

    The current mgmt UI (website ux) allow a few admin actions to be performed, however it is inadequate to for Service Desk/Operation teams who only requires limited actions as Remote Shadowing, Viewing Session on Pools, Disconnect or Terminate Sessions or Processes. It would be usefull to implement a RBAC model for this portal/management UI.

  11. 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…

  14. Add Diagnostic and Management Apps to Windows Admin Center

    Hey there!

    Diagnostics app and management app could be included in functionality with Windows Admin Center as extension - so we don't actually have to go around deploying two complex apps that look and feel alike much loved Windows Admin Center

  15. Support hiding connection bar

    There are a number of custom rdp properties which can be set via PowerShell as directed here (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/rdp-files) but the property showconnectionbar:i:0 is not available. We can set it via PowerShell in Azure but it does not push down to the client. For thin client scenarios, we would prefer the bar to be hidden from users.

  18. Make WVD available in Canadian data centres

    Many Canadian nonprofits and government users require that their data be stored in Canadian data centres. WVD data will be hosted in the US which means those organizations cannot use WVD. When will WVD data be stored in Canada (i.e., how many months after General Availability)?
