  1. Offer option to not pre-create excluded profile folders

    Some software balks when it finds a folder it expects to create already present, sometimes not working at all and sometimes creating instead an alternate folder with a different name, which of course then winds up in the profile container rather than in local_username.

  2. Ability to create exemptions for Office Containers.

    For those of use who only use Office Containers, we'd like the ability to filter/exclude folders. An example would be to have the ability to filter out the CACHE folders in Microsoft Teams which bloats the VHDX file.

  5. Confirm multi-forest support for Fslogix app masking rules

    We've been informed by Microsoft Unified support that app masking rules only support single domain configurations. This seems like a considerable limitation given the prevalence of multi-domain configurations in large enterprises. We are using app masking rules in a multi-forest setup (resource forest and multiple users forests) with domain trusts in place. This seems to work, but we'd like it to be formally supported. We are aware of other large enterprises using a similar configuration as well.

  6. Migration tools for native roaming profiles

    Migration scipts for roaming profiles (or Citrix UPM) are discontinued. I need something to prepare migration for 600 users. Manual migration is just not possible.

  7. FRXTrayTool should show Office Container status

    The Tray Tool shows profile status and all the logs, but the status indicator at the top is ONLY for Profile status. I think there should be two status indicators, one for Profiles and one for Office Containers. Ideally the tray tool could read which component(s) are enabled and show status for only the enabled Container(s).

  8. Update frx.exe migrate-vhd command to be switch-order-agnostic, or update documentation

    When running vhd migration commands, the documentation does NOT specify that the exe is sensitive to the order of the flags!

    This works:

    frx.exe -migrate-vhd -size-mbs=somesize -src="somepath" -dest="someotherpath"

    This does not work:

    frx.exe -migrate-vhd -src="somepath" -dest="someotherpath" -size-mbs=somesize

    This would be very easy to add to the documentation on the command line arguments, or optionally if frx.exe could be updated to parse the commands in any order that would be a little bit more friendly. We ended up writing a custom VHD migrator script that creates a new vhd and THEN migrates to ensure that this always works, because we couldn't…

  10. FSLogix automation

    full automation abilities so everything in FSLogix can be scripted.
    This can provide scale around new deployments and a enable the move to a full devops deployment and management of WVD Session Hosts.

    With the new model of App Attach, User Profiles and OS Images as 3 separate parts of the whole solution we will need to build at scale and deploy with scripts and templates, which means the need for 100% automation of the solution, end to end.
    This requires that everything is scriptable.

  12. 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).

  13. Search Issues with non english office installations and fslogix

    Currently seeing issues with search, when office is non-english. In our example Office is norwegian. Issue occurs when user searches for an email addres selected from dropdown when typing. Office then adds the to: email@domain.com format. In norwegian installation this becomes til: email@domain.com resulting in something went wrong error. Changing the filter from norwegian to english search filter it works as expected. Freetext searchnis ok. Issue is only when outlook adds the to/from: filters in non-english

  15. Include everything needed for Office in O365 Containers, or add the ability to modify the template so it can be managed.

    The office 365 Container does not store "Everything" required for persisting office settings and files in a non persistent environment. For instance, the Email signatures.

  16. Allow importing of directories/files/keys/values from .csv for masking/redirection

    Sometimes you cannot scan an application when trying to create a new masking/redirection rule. It would be a huge time saver if we could import a text based file (.csv, .xml, etc) instead of having to add rules one at a time.

  18. Allow redirected folders to be stored in a separate container

    Allow redirected folders (Desktop, Downloads, Documents, etc) to be stored in a separate container that way the profile can be "reset" or deleted without loss of data. This would also hybrid on-prem/azure environments easier as you could leverage cloud cache for folder redirection as well.

  19. Teams

    Store Teams Meeting Addin for Outlook (%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\TeamsMeetingAddin) and Presence Addin (%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\TeamsPresenceAddin) in FSLogix Office Container. Those folders are not saved and they will only be created at the Teams Desktop Client installation procedure. After logoff and logon with a stored Teams folder in the Office Container the user cannot use the Teams Meeting Addin anymore.

    Make it visible to the End-Users when hovering over de systray-application in WHICH mode te Profile-container is mounted. At the moment this is not possible to see if this is in ReadWrite-mode or Read-Only mode. And this can be important to know for the end-user.
    I assume the application knows in which mode it is working, so it must be easy to make this available via a tool-tip when hovering over the systray-application.
    Thanks,
    Chris Marreel
