Hello everyone! We are happy to let you know that update 1708 for the Technical Preview Branch of System Center Configuration Manager has been released. Technical Preview Branch releases give you an opportunity to try out new Configuration Manager features in a test environment before they are made generally available. This month’s new preview features include:

  • Restart computers from the admin console – You can now restart a computer with a client notification action for devices.
  • Create and run scripts with optional parameters – You can now create and run scripts with optional parameters to devices and collections.
  • Software Center Customization – You can add enterprise branding elements and specify the visibility of tabs in Software Center. You can add a Software Center specific company name, set a color theme, set a company logo, and set the visibility of tabs for client devices.
  • Management Insights – You can gain valuable insights into the current state of your environment based on analysis of data in the site database.

Update 1708 for Technical Preview Branch is available in the Configuration Manager console. For new installations please use the 1703 baseline version of Configuration Manager Technical Preview Branch available on TechNet Evaluation Center.
