How can we improve Configuration Manager?

User Device Affinity: Temporary Assignments

We manage our systems using only usage based UDA. User defined and admin defined were not being updated regularly enough and our data got stale quickly.

We have since change to usage only UDA. Our challenge here is new devices or loaner devices do not have the applications available to the users until they meet the usage threshold.

A work-around that we have done is create a PS script to force a usage based UDA releationship between the user and the device. We assigned it to only our support staff, so users can't go installing apps on neighboring devices. This will only work until the client is restarted such as in a reboot.

I am suggesting a UDA type that can be assigned for x number of days and then go away.

After the temporary UDA falls away, the usage based UDA rule will have taken over if the user still has that device, or fall away if they no longer have the loaner.
