*This post originally appeared on the AppSense blog prior to the rebrand in January 2017, when AppSense, LANDESK, Shavlik, Wavelink, and HEAT Software merged under the new name Ivanti.

AppSense Exchange has been live for several years now, giving AppSense a way to quickly share best practice templates, snippets, configurations, and tools with our customers and the broader community outside of major software releases.

The use of templates and snippets gives DesktopNow particularly powerful flexibility. The ability to import and export templates from DesktopNow allows us to share updates and best practices with you quickly and easily.

For example, if a major software vendor releases a new version of the desktop application that you use, AppSense can quickly generate a template for managing the user settings for that application and then make it available on AppSense Exchange. This means that you don't have to wait for the next release of DesktopNow before you have the correct template for your environment!

Now, for the first time, we have added the ability for you to share your template creations with the world directly through AppSense Exchange.

Have you created a personalization template for an application that you're particularly proud of? Have you written a configuration, script or tool that you think others would benefit from?

Check out the video below to see how you can share your creations with the wider AppSense Community!
