Controlling Software Installation Order

shockoMS 236 Reputation points

We have several pieces of software that we need to target to over 1000 Windows 10 machines. 2 pieces of software require reboots so we wish these to be installed ***after ***the other 3 (that don't require reboots). How can this be achived in MECM? I see we have application groups but these seem pretty limited and also show up as  single item in Software Centre which we don't like. What are our options?

PS: using MECM 2207

    Hi, @shockoMS

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    You can create a task sequence that installs the software in the desired order. In the task sequence, you can specify the order of installation and include steps to reboot the machine if necessary.
