  2. On the Home tab, in the Properties group, click Properties.

  3. In the Default Settings dialog box, click Software Metering.

  4. In the Device Settings list, configure the following:

    • Enable software metering on clients: Select True to enable software metering.

    • Schedule data collection: Configure how often software metering data is collected from client computers. Use the default value of every 7 days or click Schedule to specify a custom schedule.

  5. Click OK to close the Default Settings dialog box.

    Client computers are configured with these settings the next time they download client policy. To initiate policy retrieval for a single client, see Manage clients.
