Ability to create Custom App updates and base installs

would really be awesome and useful to be able to use pmpc as a way to publish other non public stuff. For instance software behind paywalls that pmpc couldnt get hands on, in house private/custom/non public software, or just as a way to push files/scripts and so on to devices... What i mean is if pmpc could add somekind of custom package creator through maybe somekind of easy gui wizard like maybe 1 2 3 steps (example could be perhaps a basic simplified way similar to how we can create app packages in sccm) would really be useful too many people.

    Was this webinar recorded? If so, where might I find it?

    My ultimate goal is to have a unified update experience for our users, regardless of the application being updated. As is, anything not in PatchMyPC would be updated using PSADT, but it's UI to Close and update or defer is significantly different from PatchMyPC if a blocking process is currently running. Anything to unify the two would be fantastic.

    In one of the online gatherings to ask questions to the PMPC Team, I asked if there is a chance to have the ability to use their framework for custom installs, actions etc. Turned out that we can but having a more streamlined workflow from the tool itself it is much better, here's my vote!

    YES Please! This would be so helpful and already a part of pretty much every other product of this kind.

    Also PMP would be able to gather invaluable telemetry for future official package additions through this feature.

    Wow this would elevate PMP to a whole other level of coolness!

    Since my Idea has been merged into this one: I would really appreciate the ability to customize the download source of existing pmpc apps. This is because some software offers different installers for different languages.

    The example lieading to this idea was Foxit reader, which has two differnt MSI installers, one in englisch and one that accepts an .mst to set the language. The later one is unfortunately not available through pmpc. Being able to have a little more control over the installer would save the effort to open application requests for these apps.

    We will be posting a webinar/Q&A event registration link in the coming weeks to have an open discussion about this request and ensure our team understands the different scenarios here.

    MS broke all my VPN connections with a KB a few weeks back, released an out of band update to fix, but I can't deploy with Intune to my clients as it's optional...

    Would be grate to manage apps from the catalogue and own applications within just one application.

    Since PMPC wouldn't know specifics about custom applications, maybe allow uploading a JSON file or something similar with all the settings for Intune. PMPC could use that to fill out the information that PMPC employees normally do for 3rd party apps.

    Its would be added value if customers can add their own private apps into pmpc catalog. this will allow them to manage the private apps smoothly

    Would be so useful to have only one Portal for homemade application and public application

    C'est pour moi la killer feature absolue

Allow changing download URL in package details

Merged
For software that has different installers for different languages it would be helpful to be able to change the download URL. I would be fine with a predefined selection, in case you dont want to support fully custom URLs.
