Wondering how people are handling the life cycle of their win32 apps deployed through intune.

Do you create an app that's version v1 and assign all users/computers to it.

Then when v2 comes out do you create a new app create a group of testers and apply it to the v2 app. Do you somehow exclude the test group for the v1 app now?

 

Looking for life cycle practices the group has used for win32 apps deploy via intune.

 

thanks,jb

Your way is smart way to do it. I have been updating the app itself, which works fine. There is also third party tool that integrate with Intune to update the apps called patchmypc.
