Updated my HTA for creating AD groups and collections with a few tweaks and wanted to post the new version. I originally blogged an older version here. I had taken an HTA from SMSUtils and heavily modified it to do what I needed. I have since updated it with some additional appearance changes, and the big change is that I added support for R3’s “Dynamically Add New Resources” to the collection. You can now select that as an option to set when creating collections.

Updated to V1.6: Added sorting function to drop downs

Updated to V1.5: Added option to pick collection update times

Updated to V1.4: Some other formatting changes were made as well.

New support for ConfigMgr R3:

I also tweaked the logging window so that it’ll automatically scroll as you create multiple entries.

I hope you find this tool as useful as I have over the years.
