Hi Mark & Team,
Cannot find the release notes talking about this. Just to double confirm, this is the Software Center > Installation Status > Upcoming tab? Also, cannot find any new client settings to control it.

This will be great
Add Maintenance Windows to Software Center and Client Settings (for SoftwareCenter to control it). I would like to have the option to see the Maintenace Windows in the Software Center if some are set (view only). Also optionally (controlled by Client Setting) Clients should be allowed to schedule or cancel Maintenace Windows. Aditionally it would be great to have (optional) notifications before the Maintenance Window starts (if someone is logged on) and if allowed (by Client Settings) cancel a Maintenance Window.
We use MW on Servers and production relevant special clients. Mostly the Operators of the clients want to decide when maintenance best fits. Currently this is hard (in a dynamic agile way), as we have to use direct memeberships through the console, Regkeys with HINV and Collection Queries, etc. There is no direct, easy way to see and control that from the endpoint.
Non-Business Hours are no solution for that as they cannot be set granualar enough.
It would be ferfect to have for example a policy to set a 4h MW once per month and the local admin can only decide, when to have it. So its only mandatory to have one.
