ConfigMgr – Organising your Software Update Groups

Ever since I started using ConfigMgr, organising Software Updates has been an ongoing struggle

I’d tried various methods – all were good in their own right, but now I’ve settled on a way that keeps the names short and also easy to identify them

The format is fairly straight forward – <type> – <YYMM> – <Function>

For example:

SUG – 1803 – Windows 10 identifies that this is a normal Software Update Group (SUG), published in March 2018 (1803) and contains Windows 10 updates

similarly

the ADR prefix is used to identify updates automatically deployed using an Automatic Deployment Rule.

Periodically, I then merge updates into one of the yy00 groups  (eg 1700 – Windows 10 contains all Windows 10 update released during 2017)
