  • Why not use task sequence variables to define what software is needed for each department and then use them in an Install Application or Install Software task thus making the process dynamic and obviating the need for multiple task sequences?

    MDT does this for you quite nicely but is not required for you to do this.

  • The TechNet documentation has the bascis: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh846237.aspx#BKMK_InstallApplication (expand Details).

    You simply need to populate the task sequence variables with the values corresponding to the applications or packages you want to install. This can be done in a variety of methods including directly assigning them to a collection or device, using a script, or the built-in set task sequence variable step.

    It all depends on how the task sequence is informed which path to take.

  • Hi Nick

    Beause i have many departement and each departement use different a software list.

    For each departement i have a Task sequence.

    I needed that after OS deployment (ex.: if computer in collection RH, start RH task sequence).

    My solution, i create one collection by departement and Deploy task sequence on each collection?

    you're agree with my solution? or it's possible to use variable?

  • Sounds like a good solution. You don't need a task sequence within a task sequence for this (which is not possible anyway).
