WSUS 3.0: How to push the update

Hi Experts,

I recently installed the WSUS 3.0 in our test environment and am playing with it for the past few days.
Is there a function on the server console to push the selected updates to an individual client or a client group shown on the Computer trees?

Thanks in advance.

Approve the update and it will be pushed out to all those within the tree that you selected on the next scheduled update.

You can also use the Deadline option to force clients to install as soon as possible.
