To start I usually create a new policy to test before pushing out to all users.

  • Open SCCM console
  • Go to Administration > Client settings

Right click and create a new policy (I called mine Custom Software Center)soft2

Click the Software Center check box in the policysoft3

Under device settings set select these new settings to specify company information to yes. soft4

Then go to customize. Edit company name, set color scheme and add a company picture. Below is the default settings. The logo image file needs to be a maximum size is 400×100 and 750kbsoft5

Here is the updated settingssoft6

To add a custom tab with URL to a support site or blog post. Go to tabs and put a check box on: Specify a custom tab for Software Center. (This is only available if SCCM is 1806 or above.)

  • Add a custom tab name

Once finished editing the policy it then needs to be deployed to the require collection. Right click on the custom policy and go to deploy.soft8

Then select the device collection to deploy tosoft10

Once the policy is deployed, go to a device in the collection to update the machine policy. Go to Control Panel > Configuration Manager > Actions > Machine policy retrieval & Evaluation cycle and click run now. soft11

Once the policy is updated the Software Center should be updated with the new color scheme, company logo and custom URLsoft12.png
