Manager Tour 3.2 - Device Information

This tour will show you what is device information Manager displays

The device details are displayed after selecting a single device. Three tabs will be displayed: Details, Advanced and Inventory. We'll go over what is available in each tab.



1 - Details

  • Device nickname - This is the name that is displayed in manager. It can be changed by placing your mouse over the name and clicking in the box, then change it and hit Enter. When an iOS device is first enrolled it will reflect the name of the device (unless you have changed the name in the iOS device settings it will be iPad). If the nickname is changed, Manager will always show the nickname, even if the name has changed within the iOS device settings.

  • Tags - Displays any tags associated with the selected device. By clicking Add a tag you can create new tags for the device or select from existing tags. If multiple devices are selected then only tags that are common to the selected devices will display, as in the following example. Brad's Moki iPad has the iOS tag while Moki Test has iOS AND Work. When both of these devices are selected only the iOS tag is displayed. Any tags I add while multiple devices are selected will be added to all selected devices. Any tags that are deleted while multiple devices are selected will be deleted from all selected devices.
