Preventing user from having local admin access in Intune auto-enrollment

Is there a policy available in Intune that can prevent a user from receiving local admin access on their laptop during auto-enrollment? We have a client with auto-enrollment feature enabled for their tenant, but we'd like to set up their users with standard user access instead of local admin. Any suggestions or solutions would be appreciated. Thank you!

    @Nisk, Thanks for posting in Q&A. To remove the local admin permission, you can create "Local user group membership" profile under Endpoint security > Account protection, choose Add (Replace) action to replace current membership of local administrators group or choose Remove (Update) action to remove users from local administrators group. Here is a link with more details:

    Hope the above information can help.
