    • Allow sync engine allow to use HTTPS to a web site instead of SMB

      Using a web site and HTTPS for the sync engine would provide a lower overhead for data transfer for remote users. The security can also then be improved by only allowing a single port opening to the server containing the data.

      Consideration also needs to be given to DR so need to allow sync between multiple servers.

                • Ability to configure the template update and settings sync schedules using GPO

                  Currently we have to either use schtasks or GP Preferences (how we do it) to manage how often and when the syncs take place. It would be great if this was more integrated into the company settings center (shown to the user) and configurable using GPO.

                  • bi-directional sync at same time

                    currently if you sync an application (e.g. Outlook - Signatures) and you have the application open on two devices. change something on both devices. close both applications. the problem we have now is that one application is not up to date. the sync doesn't sync in both direction when closing the app (or opening) i still thinks it's up to date. But if you change something again it catches up. I guess this could be more or less easily fixed by syncing back to the device even if there are changes which need to be synched back to the store.

                    • Improve the generator

                      Currently the generator only supports a single application, I would like to suggest a similar approach as how the APP-V Sequencer works is implemented for UE-V. This so you can grab settings for a package of products (example putty with all tools, Adobe Suite). Including the option to store these settings on a per application basis, this would lessen the amount of XML files. The restoration of the settings should also recognize this.

                      • In the company settings center, allow users to reset the state of any application. E.g. sync uncustomized/empty settings.

                        So when an application isn't working well, the user is enabled to reset settings for a specific application. So settings are synced which contain no customization or those which are approved by IT.

                        • Support the lockdown of all settings in Company Settings Center

                          Currently users can disable some of the application settings configured via the template path. I would like the option to lockdown all the settings so these cannot be disabled seeing the GPO list is not really extensive.

                          • Ability to specify to sync or not to sync depending on user's roaming profile settings

                            We have a thousands of users with roaming profiles.
                            We want to replace the roaming profiles by UE-V but we would like to do it gradually.
                            We need an ability to indicate to UE-V agent installed on the computer to sync user's settings which logging to computer, only if he don't have roaming profile defined in Active Directory in order to prevent a mess with user's settings.

                              • Support settings storage paths that are "near" offline folders

                                Currently UE-V doesn't support paths that partly share the same path as offline files.

                                Example:
                                \\server\share\directory\uevsettings
                                \\server\share\directory\someofflinefolder

                                As companies often work with both folder redirection and UE-V at the same time and like to have all user data at the same spot, this needs to be supported.

                                • Have the ability to support the application (.exe) follow the user including the application settings.

                                  UE-V is great at defining the application's settings follow the user, it would also be great for the application (.exe) and supporting binary files to follow the user as well.

                                    UE-V was introduced to be a replacement for roaming Profile, but still misses a lot of things like modern Desktop and other stuff used in Enterprise Environments.
