How can we improve Windows Server Essentials?

Provide Essentials Role with more advanced scheduling for Backups

Building on the suggestion for more flexibility in Windows Server Backup Scheduling (and added as separate suggestion to make it more visible), given that the Server Essentials SKU (and role) is aimed at simplifying SME deployments, using the Essentials Dashboard to provide a more comprehensive scheduling capability for Windows Backup (i.e. driving it through Task Scheduler) such as different sets of disks to be backed up on different days, backups on specific days, etc. as an Advanced option from the Dashboard would allow SMEs and home users to use WSE without having to consider 3rd party backups for more complex scenarios.
