How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Ability to deploy Software Update Groups to User Collections

It would make sense to have the ability to deploy software update groups to user collections. We have a few different user collections for "pilot" users. When we want to test new software we deploy to these "waves" of pilot users. This gives us the ability to not have to worry about maintaining the users primary device in a device based collection. We have device based affinity within client settings enabled. So if the user ever replaces their pc it gets updated within 48 hrs of system use. This will dynamically keep our pilot list updated. It's a PIA trying to maintain a device collection pilot list because people receive new laptops with new pc names all the time and when they do the pc name in the collection is no longer relevant.

    We are conducting pilots for Feature Updates (O365 & Win10) and it would make the process much easier if we could deploy the updates to user based collections. It is much more efficient to only worry about collecting users names and not an additional list of machine names.
