How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Option to force restart desktop endpoints if no user logged in

Hi There,

I am wondering if we can have an option in SCCM to force restart desktop endpoints after patch installation when no user logged in. This option certainly not useful for server endpoints but for desktop endpoints, it could be a blessing for work station admins those have to chase users to restart the VDI/desktop endpoints periodically to get patches installed in an environment where admins can't define any specific restart time due to nature of the job. Possible options/ features I see:
1. Define setting in machine collection/ deployment group that if no user logged in install the patches and force restart the endpoint.
2. If the user is logged in and restart is required, the SCCM client waits for the time when the machine has no user logged in to trigger force restart.
3. Option to configure this feature only for client OS to avoid human error to force the setting in server environment.

    Agree to apply this to LBUs (non VIP users) which DO NOT have scheduled Force reboot.
