Organize your devices into Groups. By organizing your devices into Groups, you can manage settings and applications for any number of devices.
In this article:
You can add device subgroups at any level based on the structure of your nested groups.
Step 1: Identify the parent group to which you wish to create a new subgroup.
Step 2: Hover over the identified group to see the + icon and click on it.
Step 3: Enter the name of the group and click on the Add Group button.
A toast message at the bottom will indicate success or failure to create a group. If the new group is created successfully, it will be displayed under the specified parent group.
Navigate to the Devices & Groups section of the Console. Click Add. Choose New Group from the following options:
On the modal, enter the group details.
From the drop-down, select the Parent Group or the Directory for this newly created group.
You can upload an image for the group or select an image from the Esper library.
Enter the group name and the description and click Create.
You will be navigated into the newly created group, where you can add subgroups or devices to the created group.
You can delete any group except the “All devices” system group. Deleting a device group will not delete the devices or subgroups inside the group, but move all the subgroups and devices under the immediate parent of the deleted group. If the deleted group does not have any parent, then the devices will move under the system parent group “All devices”.
