Allow configuration of WSUS to only sync desired channel and released updates
The SCCM console is littered with updates I don't care about for Windows 10 and Office 365. Not only that, but it adds to the scan overhead on the clients. Please allow me to configure to sync only updates based on:
* Release - Do not sync any "Preview" updates.
* Upgrades - Do not sync any upgrades. We will do this via TS
* Security & Quality Rollup ONLY - I don't need to see the Security Rollup when I'm already deploying the COMBO. For Windows SERVER, I want just the opposite, I want to see only the Security updates.
* Channel - I only want to see the Current/Monthly Channel. Please do not sync or show the deferred/semi-annual

Specifically relegate the PREVIEW contents to their own category. Do the same for TARGETED releases and other such updatea and require these to be deliberately enabled beforehand. These are not production ready and should not be offered unless my organization knowingly chooses to opt-in on behalf of the Enterprise.
Stress that these should be filtered by default to prevent sync with actual production updates, unless the selection is made in the console by AUTHORIZED personnel. Present warnings that flag these as being offered as pre-release only, along with clear disclosures that these will cause increasingly long delays in the update process.
