  2. Any chance of updating this with Houchin's 'Add systems to collection' hta? That's what I'm missing most.

  3. By default, SCCM 2012 already integrated with add device to new/existing collection. You can find with right click the system/device,Select first option: Add Selected Items.

    1. The 'Add systems to collection' HTA is better though. With both the 'Add Selected Items' and the 'Add Resources' you have to find the resources you want to add. With the HTA, you can generate a list (from a report, etc) and copy and paste them into the HTA.

    2. I agree with Randall!!! This was incredibly useful in the 2007 right-click tools, but has now been removed... :-(
