Possibility to priorize an (InPlace) Upgrade Task Sequence over Update Installation
Since Microsoft introduced the strategy to deliver two new OS builds per year for Windows 10 and a mandatory expiry date of SAC builds, the focus / Engineering task focuses back to perform in place Upgrades via Task Sequences.
As those Task Sequences are not deployed at a specific time during the week it might happen that some Windows OS Quality or Office Update are pending or queued for Installation. It does not make sense to deploy a Quality Update for the OS Build which is queued to be upgraded to a new OS Build (with new Quality Updates).
My Feature request is to priorize those in place upgrade Task Sequence deployments over OS / Office Updates in order to perform the in place upgrade for the Endpoint ASAP after its Deployment and prevent long reboot sessions due to earlier OS / Office Update installations.
Thanks for the feedback – updating status to Noted. See https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgreng/2016/03/11/configmrguv/
