Collection to scan for laptops that have not had a wifi card replaced
So we have had to replace some wifi cards in some laptops. I created a collection that pulls the specific model of laptop, but the issue that I want to do now, is once the card is replaced, I want it removed from the inventory.
I created something that I thought would work, but nothing changes in my collecttion. I've attached what I have so far.
Filtering can be a bit tricky, especially when you wish to exclude results. Change the hardware device filter to Not Any or Not All with the comparison equaling/containing the value.
You can use the Does Not Contain or Does Not Equal comparisons for items that have a one-to-one relationship with the computer. For example, each computer will only have ONE OS. Each computer will have only ONE total value for memory. Items that have a one-to-many relationship will require the use of a group filter (Not All, Not Any) to filter them out. e.g. one computer will have MANY applications/hotfixes/etc.
Hope that helps to explain how filtering works, and the following article goes over this as well.
