  3. Reboot On Logoff

    Following deployment of software updates, build in the functionality to have the machine reboot when a logged in user logs out. Much needed in sensitive areas such as Emergency Departments & Operating Rooms.

  4. Include orchestration of software updates especially for tiered solutions

    Today it's only possible to orchestrate software updating based on a membership in collections.
    This is however rarely enough for more complex setups where you might have back-, middle-, and front tiers in your setup.

    Therefore I recommend adding a dependency system between computer objects, so that you can orchestrate at least the following:
    1) Which tier of servers are patched first, second and third etc.
    2) Reboot order between the different tiers which includes an accept of one tier being fully patched and rebooted before the next tier is begun updating.
    3) Ability to choose between warning or rollbackā€¦

  5. Full Implementation of OpsMgr /SCOM Maintenance Mode

    The functionality of "Disable Operations Manager alerts while software updates run" is not as nice, as it should be - because ist not a real maintenance from a OpsMgr view.

  6. Allow Automatic Deployment Rules to create a new package each time it runs

    Allow an ADR to create a new deployment package each time it runs to prevent packages from becoming too large.

  8. Enable partial patching if maintenance window isn't big enough

    SCCM seems to calaulate the total time for an update group and then look for a maintenance window big enough to apply all the updates. I'd like to see SCCM apply as many patches as it can during a maintenance window.

  9. Automatically add products to WSUS syncs based on SCCM inventory

    Currently, you need to 'know what you have' to enable update syncs for products in WSUS/SCCM. That means that components could be present and not updated, but systems appear to be '100% up-to-date'. It would be nice to have an option to allow SCCM to add software categories to look for based on inventory results (e.g. 'someone installed SQL Server 2014, so WSUS should now look for updates for it').

  10. Allow us to categorise Software Updates

    We have a few Software Updates that we just don't deploy. Every month, our list of "Needed, but not deployed" updates show these updates (for example, IE10). I want a way of filtering these out so we don't accidentally deploy them.

    I tried doing a search by adding the article IDs, but this doesn't work (as the attached screenshot shows).

    Maybe allow us to add a custom category for individual updates (such as "Do not deploy"), so we can then include these in our search.
