Assign Devices to Device Groups
Using Device Groups is a great way to easily send updates, app installations or profiles to specific devices based on the specific criteria that you chose when creating the groups. You can check out all the criteria available for each operating system by navigating to the “Device Group” feature.
To create a device group with criteria (formerly Dynamic Group), follow the steps below.
- Navigate to the Management tab using the menu at the bottom and click on “Device Groups” using the menu to the left.
- Once there, open the dropdown menu and click “Add Device Group”.
- Create the group based on your end-users (e.g. students). Under the “Your Criteria” section is where you can choose the specific information used to add/remove devices from the Device Group.
Important Note: Device Groups are created based on the last update info received from the device. If the device has not provided the MDM with updated information, it could be incorrectly included/excluded from the Dynamic Group.
