How can we improve Configuration Manager?

ADR for servers need some love

We are using ADR for a pilot group and then for two different automatic groups, but we cant use it for our manual group.

What i would love to see:

1: Be able to configure multiple deploys within the same ADR. today we are using three ADR just because it deploys to different collections with different maintenance windows.

2: Be able to use the ADR for our manual group, deploy the patches to our collection for manual servers as Available! When we need to go in to CM just to deploy patches already deployed just to get them as available makes us use regualar windows update for our manual servers.

    FWIW, you can achieve the same result using maintenance windows. Create a non-repeating MW that occurs in the past and apply it to the servers you wish to manually patch. Deploy updates to them and watch them never install until someone manually does so.
