But what if you already have an environment where you use filter?
The customers that I work with use filters and widely deploy to either “all users” or “all devices” where filter make more granular decisions for us. It simply works great, and we cross our fingers for even more granular controls in the future.
But what if I wanted to know where my filter is used?

Using filters in Microsoft Intune is here and supports more and more assignments in Microsoft Intune as we move forward.
Use it where you can, and your environment speed will love you for it.
