Currently you can set Patch Management to prompt the user to reboot now or reboot later. A third option were they can schedule the reboot would be great!

The user could then schedule the reboot anytime before the forced reboot happens.

we should also consider the "next logoff", all the same can be tricky for "kiosk" machine... (must be optionnal, based policies)

That is a great idea for users who are on the phone all day long. Please make it a third option.

You can use "Allow User to defer" option which is available on the "Default Software Update Plug-in Policy" page under "Notification" tab (Settings->Agents/Plug-ins->Software->Patch Management->Windows->Default Software Update Plug-in Policy->Notification).
