Enable Automatic Inventory Scans

PDQ Inventory provides a number of ways to automate scanning the computers on your network. This allows you to have an up-to-date view of what is on the computers at all times. Even when you are not in the office, you can rest assured that the computers will reflect the most recent data upon your return.

Some possible scheduling scenarios include:

  • The set timeframe since the last scan.
  • Recurring daily at the same time or even monthly on a set day.
  • When a computer goes from offline to online using heartbeat.
