In lieu of RIM not offering multiple application configuration assignments until BES 5.0 (reportedly), how are you handling this sort of issue today without it becoming a management nightmare?
Luckily even though we have a lot of different apps, I can for the most part group them into executive, technical, general, accounting type groups so that is how my software configs are defined. and yes it's stupid cause most apps are overlapped between groups with sometimes only a 1 app difference. For example executive group might have 5 apps to push out and technical has 4 apps, all the same executive has but minus one.
Of course I have a couple users that need something special so they need their own app config. I really hope they just let you assign whatever multiple apps you need per user in bes 5.0. should've have been that way from the start, not sure why they designed it this way, someone wasn't thinking clearly.
