I have set an application as available for end users to install via software center. It was sent out to all systems at our company using a system collection. However, for some users, we don’t want them to wait and I’d like to send it as required to a separate user collection. Ideally, they get it installed in the background and I wouldn’t need to turn off the available deployment showing in software center on all other systems. Would this work like I want? If I target a user collection as required, does that override the optional available app in software center and install automatically? If installed as required, would the ‘available’ app disappear from software center on that person’s PC who has it installed as required? Thanks!

    Yes that will work fine. It would ultimately still be available for uninstall if you have that option enabled.
