The Software Workspace
In the Windows Intune™ administrator console, the Software workspace lists the detected and managed software that is installed on all computers that you are managing by using Windows Intune. Software inventory is only available for computers, not mobile devices. You can sort the detected or the managed software inventory by clicking the column headings in either list. Each unique software title has its own entry in the list, and you can also search for a specific software title in both lists, and filter the managed software list.
From the Software workspace, you can deploy a managed software package, or a link to a web-based application or an application in the Windows Store for the Windows, Windows RT, Windows Phone 8, iOS, and Android platforms. For Windows-based software, you can configure a Required Install deployment to be automatically installed on targeted managed computers without the need for end-user intervention. You can also make a licensed software application available from the Windows Intune company portal for approved end users to link to, or download, and install on their linked computers or applicable mobile devices.
