    This is a great idea! We're relying on OS upgrade task sequences to deploy Win10 feature updates to users with laptops in the field, and are currently losing all feedback from the update process. "Monitoring for free" was one of the key reasons based on which I was able to "sell" the idea of using upgrade task sequences to management (as opposed to just writing a script), so I'd say this is pretty important.

    +1. It doesn't help that we can't create maintenance windows specifically for application deployment only (like we can for software deployments and task sequences).

    Oh cool, I thought I was being thick and hadn't been able to figure out how to achieve this - turns out that the functionality's just missing, which seems like an oversight to me (why not make that detailed information available? It's clearly there, because SCCM wouldn't have been able to summarize it otherwise). Would be great if this was implemented, it'd save a whole bunch of clicks. Thanks!

    Correction - it turns out that you *can* provision a gMSA directly in SCCM - but only using PowerShell (New-CMAdministrativeUser -Name domain\gmsa$), not the UI. So this is just an inconsistency.

    Did Microsoft "fix this"? I no longer notice this behavior in v1606 - there's now just one SUG, and multiple deployments of that SUG. Basically - Thank you! I just didn't notice a status update on this, so commenting to check in.

    Wow, was just about to post the same idea and stumbled upon this (BTW, it looks like others have posted this as well - e.g. https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/11121534-configure-multiple-deployments-in-one-software-upd - they should be merged and so should the vote count ;) ).

    Things did seem messy when an ADR which I multiple-deployed to 5 device collections ended up creating 5 different SUGs. It doesn't make a lot of sense because the ADR's Software Update criteria is a constant for all deployments, so the software update group which is generated as a result (based solely on that criteria and nothing else) must also be the same. It's also a little disappointing that the software update groups are differentiated by a mere integer suffix, which doesn't tell you anything until you actually examine the associated deployment to determine which collection it goes out to (<ADR Name> - <Collection Name> - <Timestamp> may have been better)?

    Would it be possible, say, to provide an option when configuring the additional deployment to use the "primary" SUG or spin off a "sibling" SUG?

    And in general for any software update: https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/12504699-software-update-filter-based-on-architecture-x64. We have to use sloppy title-based filters for now.

    Couldn't agree more. Hotfixes are a crucial update classification which Microsoft continues to use - especially for server-class products, and their very nature often necessitates that we roll them out to a majority of our infrastructure nodes as quickly as possible. It doesn't make any sense that Microsoft's flagship management solution doesn't support it - especially when WSUS does, as do various third-party vendors (LANDesk is an example).
