Hide available deployments in Software Center
Hide available deployments in Software Center. Came from SCUGno Oktober Meeting 2018.
If implemented, please add a checkbox on the deployment pages that enables/disables if the available+hidden update is run when the "Install All' button is pushed on the updates, etc.

Giving the ability to hide updates like applications would be a boon to those of us that want to keep feature updates hidden until certain requirements (Staging of OOBE files/config, registering of protocol handlers, etc) are met.
Grant Morgan commented
Without the ability to make something available and hide it, we lose out on the use case where we use custom handlers and task sequences to ensure the correct order execution. As an example, we want users to run Windows 10 Feature upgrades using our task sequence which ensures the setupconfig.ini and all corp files (e.g. LGPO, etc) are on the system prior to the user kicking off the FU.

I'll elaborate, since I was the one who brought this up at said meeting.
The issue arises when you deploy an application using powershell (or the equivalent WMI wizardry) and combine the options '-DeployPurpose Available' and '-UserNotification HideAll'. This situation is not handled correctly by the console application, where the two options are mutually exclusive.
This also means that if you deploy an application as above, using powershell, and then tweak some options using the console, the hideall-option is changed when you click OK.
