    That totally depends on you environment,some or the other we all are facing the same issue.
    For best practice you should refer to below docs by Microsoft.

    If you want that you need most of the computer should be available in you sccm as you will need it once this pandemic situation is over you should consider below tasks on priority and configure the days accordingly.( Maybe 180 days?)

    1. Delete Inactive client discover data.
    2. Delete Aged client operations.
    3. Delete Aged discovery data.

    You should also consider the client activity tab inside monitoring and choose accordingly when should be client show as Inactive.

    Also look at the heartbeat and system discovery options.

    Note: Changing anything related scan settings like hardware,software scan etc. You should keep in mind bandwidth , server performance configured in your environment.
