Schedule Phased Deployments

When setting up a normal (non-phased) deployment, you can schedule a date and time for the deployment to start.

Having the same ability for phased deployments would be very handy!

    I think the point is the start time of the initial deployment. I don't want the beginning of my deployment to be the second I finish the wizard. I would want it to initially start after business hours in the maintenance window.

    Ok ... but the whole point of Phased updates is to make the phases based on reaching some kind of success/fail. If you want to make it based on date ... use normal deployments? What, specifically, are you looking for here that normal date-based deployments don't do?

    Indeed and this is sometimes required in environments with strict change management where the start of each phase needs to be defined upfront.
