I think I understand what you are asking for, but for clarification's sake. Are you asking that clients be able to deploy their own software updates from Kiosk?

Ahh, I see how this would be helpful.
In 5.7 there is a checkbox under General that read:
"make new associations Kiosk by default" but then clarifies "(not including software update)"
:S
So it is oh so very close to what I believe you are looking for.

Would you rather see another general option that ONLY applied to the creation of software updates?
Or are you looking for something you can check in the updates window, becase maybe this one is a kiosk and the others are not?

A check box to apply to all. I use this feature for updates that require a restart and the user can then apply the update knowing the machine will restart when they want.

Excellent

I will submit this to the developers as a feature request:

Ability to toggle a preference that will add software updates to kiosk by default.

End result: from the Software Update windows in FileWave Admin. Clicking Associate will create a Kiosk Association rather then a standard association.

Users suggestion of another button at the bottom of the window that reads:
Automatic Deployment to the Kiosk of requesting Clients

As requested by Dave Zeller of Manatee.

Could you make it so that the current check box stays and there's a second check box with the option of "Automatic Deployment to the Kiosk of requesting Clients" which is only enabled if the current one is checked and will be pre-checked depending on the preferences setting you mentioned?
