Guide to OSD Front ends

So, what are Front Ends and why do I need them?

Front ends are about making a task sequence dynamic and flexible without having to pre-define every permutation and also enabling the dynamic behavior to be based upon user input as defined at deployment time. They work by populating task sequence variables. These variables are used by task sequences to perform various configurations, conditionally execute a task, or otherwise provide configuration information. Because there are so many variables and different ways to use front ends, we have compiled a series of blog posts by MVP Jason Sandys to work as a guide when you wish to use them. Within this guide are a variety of other MVP and community tools to help you get the most out of using front ends.
