We try to keep a minimal Task Sequence and therefore have a lot of Applications that flow in after imaging is complete. It feels like the current order is random and I'd love to have the ability to set priority levels for Applications to have some say in what needs to be installed first.
Some of these Applications are very large and if one of the large ones is processed first the other software may not install until the large one completes.
I'd prefer to be able to set an Application priority like the OP suggested where higher priority installs are processed first. For instance, a CAD program can wait while a browser is being installed.
It seems that the current order is set and won't be deviated from. Even if several unrelated Applications have already cached they won't install before a larger still caching item if the larger item has a lower numbered cache folder. At very least it would be great if Applications finished caching could jump the line and be installed as the larger item continues to cache.
