I think i am going to know the answer to this question but thought i would Ask away!!
We use the cloud version of Endpoint Central. Is there a way to set the patching to run at a set time?. The setting "Install After" seems to be random. if i set 2:00am it could start at 3:45am
The deployment policy is set to download the patches on the next refresh and i always set the deployment a few days in an advance so it has time to cache the patches on the PC.
