Manager Tour 3.3 - Actions Bar

This tour will show what is contained in the actions bar

The actions bar is where actions are applied to devices. Manager recognizes the type of device selected, Android or iOS and reveals the available actions that can be performed on that device. We will go over each icon and option available in the actions bar.

The + icon is another option to create an enrollment template (also found in the Enroll tab, for more information see the article Manager Tour 4 - Enroll Tab). When clicked select the platform of the device you are trying to enroll in Manager. Select any apps or profiles (if using iOS) created in your account as well as any tags already created in your account and hit Save. This will give you a 7 character enrollment code to use with your enrollment or an option to download a configuration profile if using Apple Configurator to enroll iOS devices. These templates are stored in the Enroll tab.

2 - Screen_Shot_2014-07-09_at_1.52.13_PM.png Refresh Table Icon 

This button will refresh the table and clear any filters or searches that were active. This button is frequently used after sending an action to the device and you want to see if the action has taken effect yet. This will not refresh the entire web browser page, just the table. Also, devices are not effected when the Refresh Table icon is clicked as there is no command being sent to the device. 

3 - Screen_Shot_2014-07-09_at_1.53.33_PM.png Table Manager Icon

This contains the available display fields within the device list. When the icon is clicked a box will pop-up displaying  Available Fields (2) and Selected 5/5). By default the maximum number of fields, 5, are Selected, or active. To use one of the Available Fields one of the Selected must be dragged over to the Available Fields section, thus making room for a new field in the Selected. When you have finished editing click the Save button. This display is cookie based for the particular user on that particular computer and internet browser. Thus in Chrome you could have one set of displays and within Firefox you could have another set. If cookies are cleared then the table will be restored to the default settings.

4 - Screen_Shot_2014-07-09_at_1.53.45_PM.png Action History Icon

This takes you to the screen where you can access the last 100 actions performed on the devices. This view displays the Action that was attempted and the item (such as an app name), who requested the action or if it was a scheduled action, the date of the request, the number of devices the action was sent to, the number of total actions sent to that device, if it succeeded, is pending or if there was an error and how it was requested (Client). Scheduled means it was a scheduled action from the Actions tab, Web means it was requested from the computer and Server means it was requested from the Web. Occasionally you will see a refresh button next to the action. This is telling you that you can refresh the screen to see if there has been a change. This appears if an action is still pending 20 minutes after the initial attempt.

5 - Screen_Shot_2014-07-09_at_1.53.52_PM.png Trash Can Icon

This will remove any selected device(s) from Manager. It will not remove their MDM enrollment from the device so if you look at the device it will still look enrolled but it is not. The only way to get a device back in Manager that has been deleted is to reenroll in Manager again. Removing a device from this list will also delete the same device from any apps it is enrolled in. To know what apps it will be removed from click the Jump-To icon next to the device and a list will pop-up containing all the apps it is enrolled in.
