This is available as the application groups feature in the 1905 technical preview. We’d love it if you installed it and gave us your feedback.
Today many use Task Sequence to deploy set of applications and packages to computers in order to have control over install order, convenience of everything installing at same time and the name will show up on computer (example: HR applications).
It would be good with a new feature (I call it Application Groups) where we can add application and packages and on the console + client side (Software Center) you will see for example "HR applications" and the software that it will install with status for individual applications/packages part of the group.
Same control as TS with install order. Ability to add/remove applications and packages and the changes will automatically apply to the computers having the application group deployed.
This will be very useful in scenarios where applications need to be upgraded for a specific set of users or new applications needs to be added or removed for the specific group of users part of the deployment.
