add the ability to deploy individual files/folders to macOS
I would like the ability to deploy individual files or folders to our Mac devices.
Sometimes an app has an additional config file that needs deployed to make it work. We also use PDQ Connect in our environment, and that allows for us to can create packages that contain .msi, .exe, or PowerShell or CMD scripts, then also have the option to attach additional files to use in the package (see screenshot).
Also, there are times where we may just need to send a file/folder to all devices. Something else besides an app, profile, or script. A simple option to deploy files would be a huge help.
Thanks for the suggestion. At a quick glance, this seems way more involved though than it needs to be (building a package, creating a build-info file, etc). All this to push out say a single config, Word file, or folder of documents. I'll take a deeper dive when I can though.
I admit, it's been like 15 years since I was last involved in being a sysadmin, and MDM really wasn't a thing back then. Everything was on the LAN and we managed devices with Apple Remote Desktop. But even then, we had a simple button to copy an item and send it out to managed devices. I could go that route, but it doesn't help when devices are remote. I find it hard to believe this functionality isn't needed/wanted anymore that it isn't included as an option in the system.
