Windows 7 / Getting Started

Prioritizing Compatibility Data

You can prioritize any of your collected compatibility data, except for your setup installation packages, based on your organization's requirements. Prioritizing your data enables you to organize your data better, for both a more customized ACT compatibility report and filtering purposes. The following priority levels are available:

  • Priority 1 - Business Critical Includes any item that is so important to your organization that, unless you can certify it, you will not continue with your deployment.
  • Priority 2 - Important Includes any item that your organization regularly uses but can continue to function without. It is your choice whether to continue your deployment without certification.
  • Priority 3 - Nice To Have Includes any item that does not fall into the previous two categories, but that should appear in your A ACT compatibility reports. These items will not prevent you from continuing with your deployment.
  • Priority 4 - Unimportant Includes any item that is irrelevant to your organization's daily operations. You can use this priority level to filter the unimportant items from your reports.
  • Unspecified The default priority level, which is automatically assigned to any item. Your organization can use this priority level to denote applications that have not yet been reviewed.

To prioritize your compatibility data, perform the following steps:

  1. In the left pane of the ACM, click Analyze.
  2. In the Quick Reports pane, click Applications in the Windows 7 Reports section.
  3. Right-click an application in the Windows 7 - Application Report and then click Set Priority.
  4. In the Set Priority dialog box, click a priority and then click OK.
