What’s the difference between software publishing and assigning?


ANS An administrator can either assign or publish software applications.

 

Assign Users:
The software application is advertised when the user logs on. It is installed when the user clicks on the software application icon via the start menu, or accesses a file that has been associated with the software application.

 

Assign Computers:
The software application is advertised and installed when it is safe to do so, such as when the computer is next restarted.

Publish to users:
The software application does not appear on the start menu or desktop. This means the user may not know that the software is available. The software application is made available via the Add/Remove Programs option in control panel, or by clicking on a file that has been associated with the application. Published applications do not reinstall themselves in the event of accidental deletion, and it is not possible to publish to computers
