Pre-download content to cache for required app deployments asap and not wait for deadline
Required deployments of SWUpdates gets downloaded to clients ASAP, but required applications wait for the deadline to hit before downloading the content.
I would like the required application deployment to have the same option to pre-download ahead of the deadline. That way we can be positive the installation start at that time.

The problem with applications downloading ahead of time is that there can be multiple deployment types for an application. Each deployment type could have differing content locations specified. Depending on the Priority, and the requirements tabs within these Deployment Types, the applicable deployment type for the application could change between the available time and deadline time. I suppose this is why the decision was made to only download at the deadline time, because evaluation occurs at the scheduled time, and whatever deployment type meets the requirements at evaluation time is the one that will be downloaded.
