I run all the updates and restarts through scheduled task in patch manager. Most of these scheduled task actually target wsus computer groups. I would like a way to send an e-mail containing a list of the affected computers and the schedule of the task (3, 5, 7 etc..) days before the job is executed. I know the task includes a way of e-mailing results and reports include a task history option. But I have yet to find anything that would report or provide information about upcoming scheduled task. Any information would be very helpful.
There is an IDEA currently available for voting that considers being able to send a notification on Task Initiation, but there is no functionality in Patch Manager to send notifications in the manner you describe.
