Out of the box, ConfigMgr 2012 uses Application Approval when users ‘pick’ software from the Catalog.
However, this is all performed ‘in console’ – i.e. the approval needs to be performed by logging into the ConfigMgr console.
Generally, companies would not want this as approval would be done by users’ managers – who would be non-IT.
I’ve come across two methods of creating an out of console experience!
The first was created by my friend Kent Agerlund of http://www.coretech.dk
The second, I found on twitter (of all places) quite recently. It’s designed by a guy called Neil Peterson
From my tired eyes, they both seem to do the same thing?! Hopefully the guys will comment on the post and give us all a bit more info!
Kent, Neil – over to you!
