Export a list of your Intune Win32 apps to .csv

Clicking the Export button at the bottom will prompt you to save this list of data to a .csv.

This .csv file is used as a data source for our Power BI template to help you report on third party patch compliance in Intune.

Manage assignments

Selecting a single app in the list and clicking the Manage assignments button at the bottom will produce a dialogue where you can manage the live assignments of your existing Win32 apps currently in Intune.

The UI for managing the assignments here is a similar experience to using the right click Manage assignments option, however this differs by being a live modification of assignments for existing app. Whereas the right click option configures the Publisher what assignments to apply to newly created apps or updates.

Delete assignments

Selecting one or more apps in the list and choosing the Delete assignments button at the bottom deletes all of the assignments associated with all the select apps. This is a helpful function because doing such a task in the Intune console today involves more UI interaction, whereas here we can do that for multiple Win32 apps in fewer clicks.
