How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Add deployment setting-Allow enforcement outside of maintenance window for deferred update (updates that have missed one maintenance window)

There are many benefits to having one deployment for all of our workstations. We have an ADR that approves our patches and deploys them to a singular collection. Our update schedule is segmented so that not all locations go at once. Since we only have one deployment, this assignment is carried through by maintenance windows. We would love a setting that allows the workstations to wait for their maintenance window after our approval, but as soon as it has missed one window "and is now a deferred update" then enforce outside of maint. windows. We know we could go back in and change the deployment setting to ignore windows after our windows have passed, but that's a user initiated action. And we would prefer the deployment kicked in immediately when they get online after they have missed their maintenance window. A setting in the deployment itself that says, "enforce deferred updates outside of maintenance windows" (deferred updates=any update that has been approved and missed one maintenance window.) This would be very useful setting.
