Making sure you see deployment notifications - ConfigMgr Technical Preview 1902

Update 1902 for Technical Preview Branch of System Center Configuration Manager has been released.


If your end users sometimes miss the Windows toast notification about a restart or required deployment, they may not be able to snooze the action if they need to.

This can allow a reboot or deployment to occur at an inopportune time for the users leaving them less than pleased. You now have the option of using a more intrusive dialog window to help users take the appropriate action.
