  2. Integrate the WVD client in Teams as a app

    For may customers Microsoft Teams is the central hub for communication, applications and collaborations.

    A in Teams integrated "WVD App" would provide a way to (1) authenticate against AAD and (2) display remote apps or desktop assigned to the user/group.
    The user can initiate a session from the app.

    This would improve user experience and simplifies the access to WVD.

  4. Log off individual users

    It would be nice to be able to log off individual users and disconnected users as opposed to only "Log off all users" which are active via the WVD host pane in the Azure portal.

  5. Description for Session Desktop

    As the number of Session Desktops a user may have access to grows it would be beneficial to have a lengthier description for each session that pops up when the connection is hovered over with a mouse.

  6. Remote Desktop Client - show the gateway location in Connection Information

    The addition of the Connection Information to the RD client has been very helpful for troubleshooting issues, including RTT. One thing that is missing is the Location of the RDGateway. Yes, I can traceroute to the hostname identified in the Connection Data, but not all ISPs provide reverse DNS that shows enough.

    The additional piece of information would give some visibility into what's going on when RTTs are higher than normal.

  7. Deploy new host quickly with the same configuration of other vm

    I think can be a good idea to have the possibility to deploy quickly a new host on the pool with the same configuration like the others vm in the pool. Is very annoying to insert every deploy info like domain... Domain admin... Ou and all that stuff. And can be a good idea when I deploy it to have the possibility to delete the existent hosts

  8. 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…

  10. Support for WVD Feature Upgrade

    We want Windows 10 Enterprise multisession to support feature upgrade scenarios. That way we don't have to redeploy to use the latest OS build.

  11. Seamless SSO for WVD+AADDS

    Currently if you have WVD+AADDS when you cant use seamless SSO and you have to login to every app individually (Outlook, OneDrive, Teams, Edge, etc). Also you cant use Windows Hello to login to WVD. All seems strange for a cloud only solution. Currently my only option is to either setup an on-prem or Azure VM AD and use AD-Connect.

  12. Uni-directional Clipboard Redirection for WVD

    Is it possible to configure Uni-directional Clipboard Redirection for WVD

    In some cases, we may need to set uni-directional clipboard redirection where we may need to restrict the client to WVD clipboard redirection or WVD to client clipboard redirection.

    Can we have the possibility to block data copy out the Windows Virtual Desktop session to the local client but allowing the user to copy from a local client to WVD Session.

    Following RDP file settings we will be able to either
    - 0: Clipboard on local computer isn't available in remote session
    - 1: Clipboard on local computer is available…

  13. Language Redirection

    Add the option to remove the redirection of the keyboard from the computer with which it connects to WVD (as is already done with the camera, microphone, etc.) in order to have a completely different environment from the computer originating the connection and the WVD

  14. Shut down idle virtual Machines

    At the moment it is only possible to scale up and down VMs in pool by a ugly workaround (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/set-up-scaling-script). This can be managed much easier and better if it would be possible to set the number of VMs that should run on the pool settings. Reason: The broker nows exactly when new user login or logout and can handel that better then script that runs ever 5 min or so. Btw. Citrix and VMWare hast this feature since years. And for small companies this number should also be possible to set to 0. Means that if the…

  15. Allow customization of the Session Host VM Names when creating hostpools

    Currently when creating session hosts, the VM name prefix there is no option to allow starting the sequence number of vm name to anything other than 0. For example if you already have MYWVDVM-0 and MYWVDVM-1 you cannot generate a new session host that would be named MYWVDVM-2. Since the VM names must be unique within the resourcegroup, you are forced to create a VM Name with different suffix. What makes it harder is that there is still no supported way to change a VM name.

  16. Nested Templates Update

    Update the nested templates to include WaitForADDomain. This will allow full deployment of AD and WVD to be deploy at one time and the WVD will wait for the Domain to be available.

  17. Windows Virtual Desktop Graphical Image Builder

    One big topic for customers is how to build the image and which best practices to include. Maybe there should be an ARM integration that enables users to include the Windows Virtual Desktop Optimization Script and give the opportunity to select the services, tasks to be enabled / disabled while deploying a new Session Host. Additionally, there should be the possibility to add applications in a kind of graphical application installer within the portal, so that applications get installed on the fly. Maybe this can be realized through Microsoft Endpoint Manager as well.

  18. USB Redirection for USB Tokens and other devices

    The ability to connect USB devices such as USB tokens and other devices to the users remote session via the new Remote Desktop Client to WVD.

    This will allow users to connect token licences etc. to software running in the WVD desktop sessions.

  19. Remove ADFS and an Enterprise CA to achieve SSO experience for your WVD setup

    Please remove the ADFS and related Enterprise CA requirement in order to have SSO in WVD. This brings a lot of extra components, cost and extra complexity at the moment.

  20. WSUS Remote Desktop Client Category

    Allow WVD Remote Desktop Client updates via WSUS to further allow integration with SCCM Software Updates. This will ease the admin overhead rather than have to create new application packages / supersedence for each release.
