Limit a Collection to Max Number of Machines for Licensing

It would be nice if you could create a feature for collections that could limit the number of machines that could appear in a certain collection. Say you have 5 licenses of a software, you wouldn't want 6 or more machines to appear in the collection as you don't have a license for the 6th machine. Just a thought.

    Also use to randomly select X number of clients (5,000?), from source. I think this would require the new feature to create a static collection from the provided source. Would be very nice to pick a few hundred clients from across the domain of workstations for test deployments.

    I was about to also ask for this feature. I want to limit the number of machines a collection can have so I don't exceed license counts. Thanks!
