Enable partial patching if maintenance window isn't big enough
SCCM seems to calaulate the total time for an update group and then look for a maintenance window big enough to apply all the updates. I'd like to see SCCM apply as many patches as it can during a maintenance window.
I forget when exactly but at some point in the Current Branch releases I believe this was implemented.
We've had machines reach the end of their maintenance window before all patches installed and as a result the machine is left in a pending reboot state. Could the maintenance window or software update deployment have the option to always force a reboot?

at least write back at state message, that explains the problem installing all patches
