Add advanced scheduling to support patch Tuesday
We typically apply patches the weekend after Patch Tuesday but it's not always the second weekend of the month so we can't schedule it with the options available.
Still under review. This is something we’ll probably add in the next release.

We need this too.
Test /Dev = PatchTuesday + 4 days
Prod = PatchTuesday + 9 days
As Joe mentioned it never always falls on a 3rd or 4th week of the month. We need to be able to schedule 'relative to' patch tuesday.

Backup schedule that allows for timing based on patch Tuesday

I support this request.
"Clock" always starts from Patch Tue and not from calendar week.
Justen Hansen commented
I support this request as well as having an offset so that I can patch 4 days after Patch Tuesday; effective the Saturday after Patch Tuesday.
It is very important feature to have the offset value that can be set from the "patch tuesday". Now it is missing and make the scheduling not possible
or if not explicit "patch tuesday" support, a patch on release day + N or weekend +N from the release day.
We like to patch test and UAT on the day or so after release, then production a week or two later at the weekend. Impossible to achieve under the current mechanism
This allows for any post-patch tuesday fixed to be picked up and attended to in a timely and safe (i.e. non production first) manner
When is next release planned?
When you're planning the next release ?
Any update regarding this topic?

Can we please have an update from Microsoft on this?
Any update about this?
This is a core feature that we need. We solved this with an automation job that runs and check which day it is.

It would be super helpful if this can be implemented.

It would be nice if we could Schedule security updates and patches on a monthly recurring schedule based on patch Tuesday (and then +/- days). The reason is this, if we want to set recurring monthly schedules where updates are deployed to Dev on patch Tuesday, System Test on the following Wednesday, Stage on the following Thursday, and finally Production on the following Friday -- we have no way of doing this.
Sure, we can schedule "Every second Tuesday", but that doesn't necessarily mean that "Every second Wednesday" is going to be the day after that.

This is something we would like to see as well. Patch Tuesday is in our standards followed by Update Sunday. Unfortunately, this is not possible within Azure Update Management.
We are facing similar issues. It would be very helpfull if this can be implemented.
James Mealing commented
This is definitely wanted/needed as it currently requires manual intervention to adjust the deployments each month or at the very least custom automation to do this.
Suman Chatterjee commented
This is the same issue we are facing as well

Any update on this feature? It forces our organization to manually update our scheduled deployments every month rather than setting a recurring schedule.
