Run 3rd party patch policy on demand for a specific machine
I would like to be able to run 3rd party patch policies for specific machines on demand. This can of course be wished for in workflows, but doing it from the Systems tab would be useful.

we can from the phone, but not web right?
I'm not aware of a possibility to run 3rd party patch policies from the phone app either. You can however run the Windows Updates policy from both. Being able to run the 3rd party patch policy would be useful to bring computers up to speed, for example during onboarding, instead of having to wait for the maintenance window or install everything manually.
At a single device level I believe this can be done under Patch Management, Agent Status. Select the device, Actions, Run Policy.
I think this would be good, but another thing that I think would go along with this, is having the option of going into a single machine and having a screen under each workstation that allows you to, on an individual application level, select applications to install on an individual workstation level, not necessarily part of a Policy. I find that there are individual users and workstations that need custom software installed. It would be nice to be able to deploy a lot of this software individually and on demand.
We would like to see this as well.
