Heartbeat Schedule Trigger

Heartbeat Schedule for Offline Computers

So you want to start using schedules for deployments, but what about computers that are offline at the time the schedule runs? This is where the Heartbeat schedule trigger comes in to play.

With PDQ Deploy schedules, a heartbeat trigger will have PDQ Inventory ping computers for ones that switch from offline to online. Once the switch is recognized, PDQ Deploy will begin the scheduled deployment, it’s that easy.
