SMS Distribution help - newbie


I've upgraded from 1.2 to 2.0 and am having a problem getting my head around something simple.

* In SMS 1.2 you could drop a package onto a machine and after prompting you for a few dates etc) it would be sent. This is great for our helpdesk as its a no-brainer.

* In SMS 2.0 the only way I can see to send to one user is to create a collection with just that user in. This means I'd end up with hundreds of collections.

Do you guys use this method or do you have a way that you can drag/drop or easily restrict it to one machine/user in a collection (say all users).

Please help....

RE: SMS Distribution help - newbie

I am very new to SMS but I believe you can find the computer in any collection, right click, goto all tasks, then distribute software.  Let me know how this works for you.
