Just curious, why do you need to distinguish how the software is targeted? We always figured end users only cared about what was required and we have that filter, but curious why they would care if it was targeted to the machine or not.

@Chad Could you elaborate on what a real workflow is? We've done a lot of work on approvals this last year so would love to hear more on what gaps you still need addressed.

To the "creation of the app manually" comment... are you saing you'd like to be able to point to an exe and have an application created using that exe and all the content in it?

Check out the new uninstall behavior in 1804 tp.
We aren't quite ready to update the status on this, but have plans in this area. Our initial approach may not *exactly* be collection membership but would enable automated uninstall without the need for multiple deployments or multiple collections. I know that's a little vague, but we'll be able to give more clarity in the coming months. Stay tuned....
Thanks and please keep the feedback coming, it heavily influences our priorities and implementations.
Why not use a package and program for this? If you need this, it's easy to write a detection rule that is never 'installed' which would accomplish this. Is that not sufficient?
Raphael - The new software center already has this; click the 'Filter' drop down and you will see all categories. What are you seeing?
Is that just for applications or for all deployments?
