Working with Collections

Collections are groups of computers organized statically or dynamically based on any combination of the following: hardware, software, Windows configuration, registry and file scan results, local user names and groups, computer status, and certain Active Directory information. Collections can be broad, allowing for a general overview of some aspect(s) of the computers in the environment; or they can be highly granular, with complex and specific criteria used to list a limited number of computers.

Collections can be used in conjunction with PDQ Deploy to deploy packages by linking to or selecting collections as targets. Collections can also be used to generate reports and to improve computer management.
