    Have you tried adding a Heartbeat Trigger to your Scan Profiles? That will cause the target to be scanned when it goes from Offline to Online.

    Thanks Colby but in this case it doesn't work.  The remote computers are connecting via VPN so when they connect they have a different IP from the normal internal subnet, this is given out by the firewall.

    If there was a way to add the IP range to the scan profile that would be ideal.

    I have this exact question. I feel like it's not a feature that's built-in to PDQ but might be possible with a script of some sort.

    If I could schedule a network discovery on the VPN subnet for our international users that would be fantastic

    Has anyone found a way to accomplish getting computers scanned when working from home that connect via VPN?  With COVID and being in healthcare we deployed an extra 500+ computers that didn't go through our regular asset management identification process.  So now I have a bunch of computers that got added into PDQ Inventory from AD Synch but aren't getting scanned.  An automated network discovery would also help as we put our hardware through a QC process and before being put into service.  At times we get a lot of computers imaged and then get shut off for some time (not joined to the domain so not added to AD).  The goal is to be able to have ALL computers/laptops into PDQ so at any given time we know the total count of devices regardless if they are in-service or not.

    Hello I work at a large school district that would also like to see this feature automated currently we turn on 50 to 150 devices that we would like to be scanned periodically over the network and we do our work in a location where the devices get a particular IP address allowing us to automate the updates and packages . currently after turning everything on we have to run a network discovery scan before the machines go to sleep
