Tag mobile devices in SureMDM for efficient management

When you have hundreds of devices enrolled in your MDM, merely grouping them under a category is not enough. There are times when you want to give multiple identities to devices for identification and categorisation.

Let’s assume that you want to add a device under a group – Region, however, you also want to add the same device under three other categories; device makeowner and OS platform. In such situation, an option to merely grouping the device would not work. This is where SureMDM‘s new feature to tag devices helps you.

Tagging in SureMDM works very similar to Labels in Gmail. This means you can create tags and assign these tags to devices. Admins can easily view list of all devices with a particular tag, and push jobs and commands to this list. SureMDM also allows assigning multiple tags to a single device.
