Windows updates settings

Would love control over Windows Updates settings. Already available on MacOS, was a little surprised there are no settings for this in Hexnode.

    Now that you have what you call an official Windows “UEM” client, when will patching be available? This is a pretty basic feature but incredibly important to have before rolling this out to our PCs.

  • Hello @tonyl,

    Could you please specify your requirements? Are you looking to deploy:

    1. specific updates from the available ones?
    2. or

    3. the latest available update?

    If it is the latter, we will be rolling out a beta version of the feature without much delay. We will surely keep you posted!

    Best regards,

    With Intune, for example, we can specify release rings for when updates go out to our end users. Additionally, we can see which updates might be missing on a specific PC and push them out or decline them.
    In other solutions I’ve used, at the admin level you could specify specific updates you wanted to approve, decline, or defer.

    This is similar with application updates. It would be great if those could be pushed at a similar cadence.

    Thanks for the update.
