Priority based Application deployment
Hi, It will be good if Intune provide feature of application deployment according to priority because some applications needs some prerequisite application to be deployed first.
Marking as noted, meaning we are aware of the request and it’s been discussed. If we take any action, we’ll update the status,

We need this to prioritize installation order, so we can first install, for ex: Mobile Threat Defence app, followed by any LOB apps. Could you please let us know if this is still under consideration?
Checkout this new Modern MDM tool we are using, they allow you to install any apps you wish, pre-packaged, custom, powershell, modern, chocolatey and etc packages in a sequence (Drag and drop Execution Flow just like old days of SCCM Task Sequence), They also have dependency for each app.

It would be useful to do this - if not priority then why can't we test for application install as part of the conditions for app install so, e.g. Microsoft Authenticator being installed on a device is a prerequisite for Microsoft Outlook to install.

I am really surprised that this isn't a feature. So Intune seems to decide at random the deployment order?
I think it should be easy to set an installation order for applications. There are other items that are ordered in the Intune console, that can also be re-ordered.
Iterating through the list in the provided order to install applications should not be that difficult.

Win32 application dependencies are in place but please extend it also to line of business apps. Or at the bare minimum MSI deployments.
a must have!
Klaus Salger commented
Adding an installation order ID as a packages and or assignment property and honoring it at install time if more than one component is to be deployed at the same time should not be too complicated.
That could be used for simple assignments as well as for same-level dependencies.

This is an essential feature!

The ability to set the cost/deployment priority would be of great benefit. Currently Intune randomly decides the application order which it deploys to end user devices. From a security perspective it would be great if we could prioritize apps such as Antivirus Agents and core line of Business Apps.
Rob de Roos commented
Or make it possible to select application dependencies please.

Needed feature for Intune. For example, we could set up a High priority to make sure base Office 365 is installed first (and a couple of other must-have apps), then set up a Medium priority so that it installs adds-on for Office 365 (and other apps and adds-on). Otherwise, these adds-on will fail their install and it'll take time before it installs properly and this will generate confused or angry users.
We need this!
Much needed feature
Erik Nilsson commented
This should not even be a discussion. Much needed.

This feature will help to install Company Portal or Mobile Threat Defence solution first to get device compliant before start installing other apps which is not required urgently ! Also, help to improve user experience when multiple apps are pushed with required deployments.
Any update on this?
We really need the task sequence to give the possibility to install prereqs before apps.
Without this its not possible to go cloud-only with Intune.

Gave this my 3 votes! It's absolutely a requirement to avoid management overhead when deploying applications
This is a must have. We typically force installation of all MS Office Apps on device enrollment which are rather large in size.
Ideally we'd want to prioritize the installation of Outlook App which is the one users need more intermediately then the rest of the Apps can keep installing in the background.
If you could let us know how the tool prioritises the applications for deployment for now it would be a great help...does it deploy them based on when they were added to Intune? their size? the file name? If I knew that I could work around for now. I am pushing some applications but I am also pushing out a Defender signature updates command which I want to happen as soon as possible after a AAD join.
