How to invite users to the MDM environment
Users can be added to the MDM environment via TeamViewer Remote or the Web app. To begin, navigate to Users under Mobile Device Management and click the blue + Invite users button in the upper right corner.
In the drawer that appears, begin adding users by typing their email addresses in the provided field. Click Continue to proceed to the next step.
💡Hint: Users can be added individually or all at once. To add multiple users, separate each email by a comma.
How to edit MDM users
In the event user information needs to be updated, this can be done within the User drawer. To begin, navigate to Users under Mobile Device Management on the Remote Management tab. Select the user whose information needs to be updated, and click Edit at the top of the drawer.
This will bring you to the Ivanti portal, where you will be arrive on the Overview tab for the user. Here you can update the following information:
