    The circled field is number of computers missing any critical updates, e.g. there are six computers which haven’t been patched.
    The underlined fields are the numbers of patches missing on those computers. So computer one is missing a total of 47 critical patches, computer two is missing a total of 9 critical patches, etc.

    Leaving this as “needs feedback” until we can confirm it’s by design.

  4. Ability to schedule the exact reboot time

    In our update installation process, we need to communicate to our clients as precisely as possible the time when the servers will be offline (rebooting).

    Right now, we start installing updates 30 minutes before the agreed upon time and delay rebooting the servers until that time. We would love to be able to do this using Update Management.

  6. disable schedule updates

    There needs to be an option to temporarily disable a scheduled deployment and/or the ability to disable a computer from participating in the next scheduled update.

  9. It is nice to have option to export list of servers which are scheduled for update management

    After scheduling update management, there is no way we can export list of servers that are part of the update management. While we create groups ahead of scheduling patching but at the time of creating the schedule, there is no way to compare that with the groups created.

  10. Per User pricing

    OMS is a great solution for monitoring devices, etc. It would be great if there was a pricing model based on user count. This would allow the collection of logs/update data/changes/etc from Desktops, Laptops, phones, or other devices associated with that user. Paying per node for a user with 3 devices when combined with Microsoft 365 licensing is just too pricey. Ideally, it would be great to see Microsoft 365 pricing include the Log Analytics, Update Management, and Anti-Malware solutions from OMS for all of the users devices.

  11. driver updates incorrectly reporting

    I have several windows systems and VMs that are misreporting driver updates required. I have run Windows Update, scanned for updates from driver manufactures tool kits, and I have even gone to device manager and attempted to search for and manual install latest drivers (that I already had installed.) Some of the drivers are old as the component is a few years old (like processors from 2013 with last driver update in 2015).

    Is there a way to clear the cache, or flag it as ignore so that it does not pop until a new driver actually becomes available (which…
