I've tried the new Custom Apps portal (portal.patchmypc.com) and it looks very promising.
But for one of our apps with a trademark symbol (®) I'm unable to supply av valid string for the app name.
"Please limit your input to use only ASCII characters."

Here are the result from PatchMyPC-CustomAppsHelper.ps1:
AppName                       : BloxOne® Endpoint
Publisher                     : Infoblox
Architecture                  : 32-bit
AppsAndFeaturesName           : BloxOne® Endpoint
Version                       : 2.4.6
InstallContext                : System

Hey  PappiRauk,

Thank you for reaching out.

We are working internally, and we are aware of this. We are testing how we can add a symbol to the app name in the custom app folder.

We will update you once we have an update.

Hey Pappi

We have a work item internally to resolve this by adding a list of new allowed characters, but we are at the mercy of what characters Intune supports and we need to figure out what that list is!

In the mean time, I suggest simply removing the illegal character from the display name of the application when adding it to the custom apps portal
