functionality to install UPW-Apps like MSI or Microsoft-Store integration

Microsoft is changing the default-way to install Applications.
They switch from Classic-Applications to "Modern-Apps" in UWP-Containers.
Some software is still only downloadable in the MS-Store(for Business).

It would be a great Feature and sales argument to integrate native support for:

->installation of appx-Packages
For example: (Upload appx-Package, give a Name, publish, finish....)
(like MSI-implemention at this time)

->integrate Microsoft App-store for getting Apps and push to end-user devices.
Browse MS-Appstore, or catch the URL from an app to integrate this app in Zenworks for distibution to end-user.

This Feature will simplify and speedup Software-packaging and make patching less time expensive.

We need it to. We want to have the shortcuts in ZAPP instead of the Windows Startmenu.

Integration of ZENworks with Windows Store for Business is essential now. I'd be surprised if this wasn't on the ZENworks roadmap.

This is important if ZCM is to stay relevant for Windows deployment. The way that you have integrated with Apple Store and VPP for iOS apps is a good model for this.
