Hi,

For the pre-provisioning part of Autopilot. Would you recommend that we have a sort of "baseline" apps device targeted instead of user targeted? This would be apps like VPN, Antivirus etc. The standard kit.

For other software it would be in the Company Portal as available targeted to users.

Windows Autopilot
Windows Autopilot
A collection of Microsoft technologies used to set up and pre-configure new devices and to reset, repurpose, and recover devices.

    Yes, I would recommend to collect all apps which are required for ALL computers to be in place and assign them to Autopilot ZTD - AAD group. Though, sometimes VPN and antivirus might be complex and make Autopilot ESP to fail. If so, you can then take them away from ESP listing and make them install after autopilot is completed. I had some challenge with Antivirus, because it production code changed rapidly during installation for detection method. VPN might then interrupt internet connection. It all depends on how the installers for these are made and how you package them. Just test and test :)
