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.
