Fastest way to get new laptops into a collection

Does anyone have any experience getting NEW laptops (or new workstations by model) into a collection very quickly? I think the problem I am running into is that there is no SCCM resource for model or chassis type, so I have to wait for hardware inventory or data discovery?

Machines are falling into the “Clients All” collection very quickly, but I wanted to filter by model or chassis type, but it seems to take FOREVER to fall into that collection.

Hi,

To run the Hardware Inventory trigger quickly, we could use this following powershell to deploy the client:

UInt32 TriggerSchedule(
String sScheduleID
);

Hardware Inventory {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}

Here is the related article we could refer to:

How long is forever? Hw inventory will happen shortly after the computer is added to cm, so it should a few hours. Exactly what problem are you trying to solve? Aka why get into this collection?

I am trying to apply bitlocker policy as quickly as possible after a machine comes up on the network for the first time (but I want to apply it to laptops only). We are not using task sequences for imaging (and don’t want to). Once I figure out how to do this, then it will have other uses too (like quickly patching new machines for example).

I wanted to update this post now that i have had some time to do more testing.

I was able to do more testing on physical laptops today and things appear to be happening at an acceptable speed now. it does appear that a hardware scan does in fact happen pretty quickly and the policy is getting applied in a reasonable amount of time (under an hour i think).

Appreciate the advice on here. there was some good info in here that might help in the future.
