Provide the ability to update a specific target on demand like you can with Filters. 

There is a connect forum post going on about this specific need.

This feature would be used to get policies to apply to PCs immediately.  If you have a policy that needs to be applied or removed from a computer the current design does not allow for this to happen immediately.  You must wait for the membership update schedule to pass which is upwards of an hour in large environments.  Then you have to wait for the PC to update its configuration which could be several hours more.  In NS6 you could just issue a command through the GUI or the ASDK to update a collection and then use the GUI or ASDK to update the configuration on the PC.

We also are feeling a lot of pain around this and absolutely need to have this work just like in NS 6.0 with the ASDK!!!!!!  Testing the workaround now but this need to be addressed by Product Management.

2 years later... any progress on adressing this?  Causing major issues for us as we move to ITMS 7.1.
