4.Parent group - if you do not have a specific Static group for mobile devices, we recommend you to create a New Static Group (called Mobile Devices for example ). If you already have an existing group, click the /ALL/LOST & FOUND, a pop-up window will open where you can choose the Static group.

5.List of Devices - specify mobile devices for enrollment, you can use the following options in order to add mobile devices:

Add device - single entry, you need to manually type an email address associated with the mobile device to which the enrollment email will be sent. If you also assign a user to the mobile device by clicking Pair and selecting the user, the email address will be overwritten with the one specified within User Management. If you want to add another mobile device, click Add device again and fill out mandatory fields.

Select User - you can add devices by clicking check boxes to select users listed in User Management. Click Unpair in case you want to make corrections to the list of mobile devices for enrollment. Once you've unpaired (removed assigned user), it will be marked Not paired. Click Pair and select the right user. If you want to delete an entry, click the Trash can icon.

Import CSV - a method that makes it easy to add large number of mobile devices. Upload a .csv file containing a list of devices to add, see Import CSV for more details.

We recommend you to specify Device name in each entry when using Import CSV method. This is the name shown in Computers section and Groups by which you will be able to recognize the mobile device. If you leave Device name field empty, email address will be used instead and appear as Device name within Computers and Groups. This may cause some confusion, especially in case you use the same email address to enroll multiple devices. This email address will appear multiple times and prevent you from being able to distinguish between the devices.
