WSUS approbation updates

How do I make critical updates go through automatically?

If I have Windows 10 version 1909 for example, and you want to install 20H2, but to install 20H2 you need to go through 2004 etc, if I approve 20H2 are the others approved automatically ?

If some users of my computer park use Office in Portuguese, if I approve the Office update in Portuguese, will it be deployed on all PCs or only on those that use Office in Portuguese?

    Hi Dany Ferreira Novo,

    Thanks for your posting on this forum.

    If I have Windows 10 version 1909 for example, and you want to install 20H2, but to install 20H2 you need to go through 2004 etc, if I approve 20H2 are the others approved automatically ?
    No. We have to approve the updates for the computer groups if we want to deploy the updates for clients. We could approve the updates manually or Automatic Approval Rule. Please refer to the below picture to create a Automatic Approval Rule:

    If some users of my computer park use Office in Portuguese, if I approve the Office update in Portuguese, will it be deployed on all PCs or only on those that use Office in Portuguese?
    In my opinion, we could put all the computers in Portuguese into the same computer group and then approve the needed updates for the specified computer group. That will be OK.
    In addition, please remember to add the Portuguese language into the WSUS server. Please refer to the below picture to configure:

    Hope the above will be helpful. Thanks for your time.

    Regards,
