SCCM 1706 – Share an application from Software Center

With version 1706 coming out for SCCM Current Branch, one of the new useful features is the ability to give a user a direct link to an application in the Software Center. This can be useful for a scenario such as deploying an application as Available, and providing the users with a direct link to the application in Software Center so the users can choose to install the application if they like.

This post will show a quick demo on how to share the link to Office 365 ProPlus which was deployed as Available.

Open Software Center and click on the application you would like to share. Click the share button.

You can now copy the link below. In my example, I am going to email staff advising them that Office 365 ProPlus is available to install from Software Center. I will email a picture of an Office 365 ProPlus logo and add a hyperlink to the link below in the picture.
