Create Certificate Request using SHA256 in IIS

I have a Windows 2012 R2 Server, with IIS8, and I updated my website to use HTTPS.
I used the tools in IIS manager to generate the certificate ("Server certificates" -> "Create Certificate Request..."), and it was signed using SHA1 - and I had no option during the process to change this. It may be a problem in the future as SHA1 is about
to be deprecated.
Is there any plan to support SHA256 in IIS in a near future ?

The generator included in IIS Manager is not the only way to create CSR.
Windows/IIS itself already supports SHA-2 certificates if you install them properly. Not sure when Microsoft will update IIS Manager.

There is 2 ways to create SHA256 (SHA-2) in windows
2- windows Snap-in console
The second method is very easy and works on all windows serevrs 2003, 2008 , 2012 and XP, 7 to 10
RUN > MMC > FIle> Add Remove Snap -In... > Certificates > Add
Personal> Certificates(right click)> All Tasks> Advanced Operations> Create custom request

using option 2 - how would you then import / complete the request in windows... say to use the certificate for a web application in IIS ?

You can complete the request using IIS Manager at that point as I have successfully just done that. You can then edit the bindings to use the new certificate.
