How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Application deployment pre-approval

Currently, if I deploy an application with the "requires administrative approval" any and all requests for that deployment require an approval.

It would be great to be able to "pre-approve" users during the deployment wizard, so that a senior help desk technician or key application users (for example) can be pre-approved to install software, while other users in the same collection might be required to formally request that software.

Also, it seems strange that if I deploy software with "requires administrator approval" to a collection that I am in, I need to request, and then approve, my own application request.

    Have you tried deploying the application to:
    (1) the pre-approved collection of users without "requires administrative approval" checked, and
    (2) a separate deployment to a new collection of "all users excluding pre-approved users" with "requires administrative approval" checked?

    Just wondering if that would produce the desired outcome.
