I understand Automox is meant to be streamlined/simplistic; however, the scheduling system, in my opinion, is too simple and should offer more granularity.  An example being, if I want to exclude patching the entire week of Patch Tuesday - this is not feasible with the current calendar because it goes off the date of the week, not the day of the week.  So if I excluded week 2, that could start on a Monday, a Thursday, etc.

I understand we can use advanced patch policies to use offsets for patch age, but that makes scheduling ironically overly complicated. 

A seemingly simple fix would be to add optional CRON expressions.  I see many platforms doing this, allow basic calendaring with a checkbox to utilize CRON if you want to implement a more advanced schedule.
