Software Update ADR templates in ConfigMgr 2012 SP1

In Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 there are so many nice new features included that will make our lives a little easier. To make it even easier to use Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 for patch management there are now two built-in Software Update Automatic Deployment Rules(ADR) templates built-in.
One template for Endpoint Definition Updates and one for Patch Tuesday.

These templates includes the common settings for deploying these updates, which makes it even easier to get started with both Patch Tuesday patching and to deploy Endpoint protection definitions using ADR.
In Configuration Manager 2012 sp1 it is now supported to deploy the Endpoint Definitions more than once a day, so we can deploy them every 8 hours which is recommended based on the frequency of the definition updates for Endpoint Protection.

The templates can be selected directly when you select to create a new ADR. Great feature!
