    Hi,

    Here's an example script you can use in this scenario:

    <#
    AUTHOR: Eswar Konetti
    DATE: 18-Nov-2016
    COMMENT : This script will read notepad file for client computers
             ,check if they exist and remove from SCCM .
    VERSION: 1.0
    #>
    # Determine script location and create log file to store the results
    $ScriptDir = Split-Path $script:MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path
    $log = "$ScriptDir\clientremoval.log"
    $date = Get-Date -Format "dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss"
    
    "--------------------- Script executed on $date (dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss) ----------- ----------" + "`r`n" | Out-File $log -append
    #try import SCCM Module ,if error catch it.
    Try
    {
    Import-Module (Join-Path $(Split-Path $env:SMS_ADMIN_UI_PATH) ConfigurationManager.psd1)
    $SiteCode = Get-PSDrive -PSProvider CMSITE
    $SMSProvider=$sitecode.SiteServer
    Set-Location "$($SiteCode.Name):\"
    }
    catch
    {
     "[ERROR]`t SCCM Module couldn't be loaded. Script will exit!" | Out-File $log -append
     exit 1
     }
     # Read the notepad file for client records
     ForEach ($client in Get-Content $ScriptDir"\clients.txt")
      {
       $CN=Get-CMDevice -Name $client
       $name=$CN.Name
       if ($name)
       {
       try {
           "$date [INFO]`t $name found in SCCM " | Out-File $log -append
    Remove-CMDevice -name $client -force
    "$date [INFO]`t $name removed from SCCM " | Out-File $log -append
    }
    catch
    {"$date [INFO]`t $name found in SCCM but unable to delete record.Check further " | Out-File $log -append
    }
    }
       else
        { "$date [INFO]`t $client not found in SCCM " | Out-File $log -append}
       }
    

    You can use this script as a task scheduled to run weekly. All you need to do is pipe your computer records into Notepad and allow the script to run for you automatically.
