Organize Zenworks Applications in Windows 10 Start Menu?
We assign some of our applications in Zenworks to the Start Menu. This list has grown quite large and a staff member asked if there is any way we can organize that list in folders. I can't seem to find any info on if this is possible or not. All I see when assigning a program to desktop, start menu, etc is a check box for start menu but not any further control. Is this just the way Zenworks works or is there some hidden settings to organize that list in the Zenworks Apps folder in the start menu?
Re: Organize Zenworks Applications in Windows 10 Start Menu?
the "problem" is not about ZENworks but Windows 10 itself:
The folder structure is already given by the ZENworks folder structure in Bundles, and it's still working fine with our remaining clients running W7 or W2008R2. So questions came up early about how to get a similar or better user experience in Windows 10, our results:
Assigning bundles to "Start menu" in Windows 10 allows to search for them by name directly. That's all we take care about today, as a result it's very rare that we add something new to Start Menu.
Everything else is now handled via ZAPP:
Because the old 11.x agent did not have many features (just a structure you can click for bundles), it was used by users by preference only or in case of some bundles not showing up in Start Menu.
Right now most users like the new ZAPP, I presented them a short pictured guide about how to get the best out of it. While they still have the exisiting folder structures available, they seem to like the search feature a lot:
Because the search works not only within the bundle name but also within the bundle description (!), we started to add additional keywords there to make it even better.
You might give it a try 😉
