Skip scheduled scan if end user scan complies to scan policy
Currently there is no feature available that will allow the scheduled scan to skip if an end user has already setup a manual scan schedule within the last xx days. For example: say you create a policy in SEPM to initiate a full scan at 12:00pm every Thursday and about 20% of your employees complain that 12:00pm everything Thursday is inconvenient and should be changed. Instead of changing the scan to a different time—which might affect who knows how many more employees—we want to give the end user the ability to control their scan times but also comply with our corporate policy of ‘at least 1 full scan 7 days’. To make this happen we need a feature that checks if a user has run a full scan in the last 7 days, if they have, skip the scheduled scan at 12:00pm on Thursday. If they haven’t run a full scan in the last 7 days, force a scheduled scan at 12:00pm on Thursday. This will provide more end user control over scans and cut down on both SEPM administration and negative end user feedback.
