Applying group PTFs

This tip shows you a time-saving way to apply mutiple group PTFs.

When applying multiple group PTFs do not IPL until installing the last group PTF. This reduces downtime as you only have to IPL once. This is especially true after applying a cumulative package. Totally apply the cumulative package with IPL and bundle the group PTFs.
