How do you schedule?

We've been playing around with the different scheduling options. We've bounced between event and time orientated deployments. The time updates seem to be foolproof, but we have a need for immediate deployments in certain cases. Has anyone messed around with the "on boot" or "device connects to network"?

If I want to push a patch immediately, I just use recurring/When a
device is refreshed. Then I go to the machine in ZCM and push a refresh
to the machine.

Re: How do you schedule?

We do pretty much the same thing as Brad. If the deployment can wait for a few hours, we'll schedule it to go out when a workstation locks, and set it to silent install, no reboot. That way it gets out within a day, and pretty much guarantees that the user sees nothing.
