I have no votes left today, I'll make sure I vote for this when I have votes available again. I totally support this idea, I have made a similar suggestion for 'multi-select TS deployments to collection(s)'. It should be integrated in the console. Administrators do have the need to deploy stuff to a collection or even multiple collections at one click (selection of SCCM objects like packages and task sequences) from within the console. Currently it is a burden to deploy like 20 task sequences or packages to a collection. I have to repeat the same action 20 times, manually. Working on a PS script to do this as we speak because it's too frustrating to work like this!

Our 1905 Technical Preview is now released.
This release has the first round of changes in the App model to allow a Task sequence as a deployment type allowing task sequences to be deployed to users/user groups.

We use Task Sequences for most of our software deployments because we often need many dependencies to be installed aside the main application and this in a specific order. Unfortunately, you can't deploy them to user collections, only to device collections. It would be great if a TS could be targeted to users in stead of devices only. Now we have a workaround in place that in essence deploys the TS as an App and can be targeted to user collections. The app contains a PS script to start the device-targeted TS and can be triggered from App Catalog. It would be much easier if we could directly target the TS to the users.Chris Cools supported this idea ·
