How can we improve?

Better scheduling based on Patch Tuesday

It would be great if there were better options for scheduling scans/remediation, specifically based around Patch Tuesday. For example, we have a test group of workstations and servers. They get the first wave of patches and test them for a few days. Then we roll out patches to the rest of our enterprise. Unfortunately we can't schedule this to happen on the X day of every month because it varies slightly in certain months. This creates a lot of work and rescheduling. Possibly a solution would be the ability to use Patch Tuesday as an anchor point, then schedule subsequent scans based on a delta from the anchor point...?

    We do this using Attributes - We manually designate certain machines at each site in each group with the Department attribute's value set to TEST.

    Then we can deploy patches to TEST and wait for everything else.
