SCCM 2012 r2 Delay installing windows updates for N days

Last Modified: 2015-03-24

I have created Automatic Deployment Rule, which should download ALL Windows 7 updates. In Deployment Schedule (Software available time) is set to 14 days, and Installation deadline is 1 days. This is deployed to some Collection.

What i wanted to do with this delayed time of 14 days is to delay all new updates released in last 14 days from showing up in Software Center, and after those 14 days pass, updates should show up and install in next 1 day. All updates that are released by MS before 14 days should show up right now in Software Center and be installed.

Now i was wondering if this is possible, to delay updates in this way?
After setting this up, no updates are showing up in Software Center. It seams that ALL updates are now delayed from showing up in Software Center for 14 days, even those from last year.

Is this normal?
