I currently have WSUS setup to install updates (4-Auto download and schedule the install) every Friday at 11am.
I'd like to also allow for the "yellow shield" to show up for everyone (admin or non-admin) to allow for a manual kickoff of the scheduled install. I don't want them to be able to uncheck the updates...just to be able to run it before the scheduled time if they want (without having to go to Shut Down, Install Updates).
The reason for this is I have people complaining that if I approve 10 updates on a Wednesday then when they are leaving Wednesday night they will get "Shut down and install updates" and have to wait to undock their laptop... lol.
Is it possible to do what I'm asking? I don't want to get rid of the schedule because I know there will be people that will NEVER click on the shield.
I have the following settings via GPO:
