Monthly Scheduling option: Day of month + x days

It would be nice to have a feature to better schedule the maintenance.

You know, for example, that Windows Patch Tuesday happens every 2nd Tuesday of the month. We do a round of patches for Dev and QA servers on the following Friday. Try to make a schedule to take that into account every month and you'll see that it's not possible without having an option for "Day of the month + x days".

 

See the explanation here, it's very clear: batchpatch.com/batchpatch-task-scheduler-recurrence-options

Re: Monthly Scheduling option: Day of month + x days

Dear Paul,

   Thank you for asking this here. I hope you are aware that we do have the option to schedule maintenance Monthly with a "by day" configuration. You can configure this with a Friday schedule which could take care of your case. 

We will add this to our backlog and bring it in when we enhance our scheduling capabilities.

How would you configure for "Friday following the second Tuesday of the month"?

Hi Paul, As mentioned above the feature you asked for is added in our roadmap plan. Our team is working on to enhance scheduling features we have added it as part of it. 

 

What I suggested was have the setting as second Friday of every month (hard code it) as shown in the image. 

Note: However, this would fail in case where the start of the month falls on a Wednesday (in this case you will have to do it manually for that month). This isn't the best solution but a workaround until we release the feature.
