Continue support and updates for Advanced Group Policy Management. Our company uses AGPM extensively and would like to see future enhancements and support continued. If there is a replacement Microsoft product, it doesn't seem to be found.

AGPM is a very important to have full control over Group policy when you have multiple support teams. Without this it is very hard to change management, do easy roll backs, follow up what was modified when. For an enterprise environment when GPO's are beeing updated on a daily base this is really important.
For large organizations management of Active Directory tends to get out of control. AGPM puts the control back into Active Directory. Wake up Microsoft! Continue your support and enhancements to AGPM!

I have several customers who I have helped recently implement AGPM and they wish it were a bit more automated during the install, such as the option to select if it should remove delegated permissions. Also the most recent patch removes file/folder permissions that have to be fixed for it to be used again. Since it appears that a command has to be run granting Group Policy Creator Owners rights to all existing GPOs, why wasn't that part of the install or at least an option to check for it to be done. I have had customers ask why it wasn't written as a complete replacement for GPMC so if someone decided to use it all functions can be done within a separate AGPM MMC instead of an add on to GPMC.
Vital product for us. A little buggy on the deployment side occasionally.
One support/enhancement request - to be able to copy text from the Comments field, of selected history line, in the GPO History window.
Very nice tool to rollback a GPO change and also see the difference before applying new changes
