Ad is not needed for  user mode.

Computer mode : policies are applied to computers

user mode: policies are applied to users

when you create the package, just set it to user mode, install it 

or u can install those as computer mode and later switch that to user mode

To switch a client between user mode and computer mode

1.    In the console, click Clients.

2.    On the Clients page, under Clients, select the group that contains the user or computer.

3.    On the Clients tab, right-click the computer or the user name in the table, and then select either Switch to Computer Mode or Switch to User Mode.
