    This would be an amazing addition for PDQ. My colleagues and I are also looking to for this feature to manage patches.

    I agree, this would be awesome. We use SCCM for WSUS updates but use Deploy for third-party application patching. We have a specific schedule for WSUS and third-party applications where it is based off a specific week of each month. So being able to start a schedule based off X-number of days from the Monday or Tuesday of a specific week would be great!

    I'm working on this same thing right now. I know I could use third Tuesday to be sure, but I've broken up the deployment into Stage 1 for non-critical servers to be sure nothing is up with the released updates, and Stage 2 for the rest. I don't want to use 4th Tuesday for that group since 2 weeks could be a long time to remain unpatched. You also can't just use 2nd Wednesday, since the month may have started on a Wednesday and the second one would be after the first Tuesday. 

    I wonder if there is a way to return a result from PowerShell into a variable that would determine if patch Tuesday has occurred or not?
