No as the Search Folder Criteria is only based on Update Information.
What you could do is to create a ConfigMgr Report for your needs.
Maybe you'll find some Reports Samples here:

I ran this code:
select  
v_Collection.Name as CollectionName,  
v_ServiceWindow.Description,  
v_FullCollectionMembership.Name as Computername    
from v_ServiceWindow  
inner join v_FullCollectionMembership on (v_FullCollectionMembership.CollectionID = v_ServiceWindow.CollectionID)  
inner join v_Collection on (v_Collection.CollectionID = v_FullCollectionMembership.CollectionID)  
order By v_Collection.Name

but it isn't pulling all my collections.

With this query you just get collections with Service Windows

Would you like to use the built-in report named "Management 3 - Deployments that target a collection" ?
It does what you want, you select a collection and it returns any updates targeted in it.

Alternatively you may clone another report in the management or compliance category and play around with it (tweaking it) to get the result you seek.

gsimos, do you know this report # for Management 3 - Deployments that target a collection? If not I'll look through tomorrow.  I must have overlooked and will check...

Yes, the only input it needs is the collection id and it returns any updates applied/needed for it.
Isn't this the one you're asking?

when running the code, I receive an error with the @__timezoneoffset

Msg 137, Level 15, State 2, Line 7
Must declare the scalar variable "@__timezoneoffset".

How do I properly set this line?
select 
a.Assignment_UniqueID as DeploymentID,
a.AssignmentName as DeploymentName,
IncludeSubCollection = case a.IncludeSubCollections when 1 then '*' else '' end,
a.StartTime as Available,
a.EnforcementDeadline as Deadline,
DATEADD(ss,@__timezoneoffset,a.LastModificationTime) as     LastModificationTime
from v_CIAssignment a
where (@CollID is null or a.CollectionID = 'USA0001') and a.UpdateAssignment = 1
order by AssignmentName

Open in new window
