Scheduling Actions to Multiple Devices

When managing devices all over the world it is likely you will need to install an app, profile, app settings or other action to a device or group of devices after business hours. Moki allows you to schedule these kinds of actions ahead of time. There are device actions and app actions and each one happens in a different place inside Moki. Below we'll explain how to create each of these scheduled actions.

Section 2: Scheduling app actions

Scheduling app actions requires that you are running an app that meets the following requirements

  1. Be using MokiTouch 2 or another app that has the MokiManageSDK embedded
  2. There must already have been a settings template created in order to send settings. For help in creating a settings template see the article Creating and Using Templates.
  3. To change settings on specific devices instead of all devices you must have a tag on them which is associated with an Action Group. (See these articles on How to Tag Devices and How to Create an Action Group)
