Hey, guys!

Mobile Device Manager Plus has recently endorsed Google's mobility management function -  Android for Work
For those of you who manage Android devices, this exceptional feature gives you enhanced device management controls like: 

1. Separate work files from personal files on the same device. 
2. Apply policies only to the work-container in managed devices. 
3. Push work apps silently and prevent untrustworthy ones from being installed.
4. Manage volume purchase of apps easily. 

This feature is especially relevant in organizations that permit BYOD programs.


Android for Work can be explored in the recent builds of Mobile Device Manager Plus. Click here to know more about Android for Work. 


Thank you!

Hi there

I have some questions regarding this ?
1) Does AFW/ManageEngine MDM support push installing of apps on to end devices without user prompting?

2) Can I purchase multiple licences of a paid app and then distribute those to selected devices using ManageEngine ?

thanks

Hi Simon,

Thanks for getting in touch! Here's our response to your questions.

1. Yes, we do support silent installation (installing/pushing apps onto devices without users' intervention)  through the ManageEngine Mobile Device Manager Plus console. 

2. Yes, you can purchase multiple licenses for Google Play Store paid apps. Post purchase, you can distribute them to your end-users' devices through ManageEngine Mobile Device Manager Plus. 

Please go through the "App Management" section of this document to know how you can go about it. 

Hope this helps! Do let me know if you need anything else. 

Best,
Vijayalakshmi

Hi there,

How to make AFW and MDM work together? 
I have configured AFW in MDM but only see google play app can sync to MDM. And the approved app just in the MDM app list, not silent installed in user's device.

And the google user still google user can not sync to MDM, so when I try to enroll the new device I still need to create a new user in the MDM.

If I using google company domain user login as the google account, it will force me install MDM, but after that, the google account can not login again, once click the account, the MDM will pop-up and show the message as attached.  Is there some configuration not correct?  Please correct me is I am wrong.

Hello HNF,

Greetings.

The MDM Cloud requires a account with zoho to enroll the devices. If you are using the NFC or DPC then you can assign the device to users after the enrollment.

Could you contact the support via e-mail (mdm-support@manageengine.com) to check the Device Activation issue via online troubleshooting session ?. 


Regards,

AFW is forcing encryption on our handsets in our shop, even though we have not set up AFW. How do we stop this??
Hello Sean Fiero,

Greetings.

By default, MDM will create a work profile up on enrolling the Android version 5.0 and above. The work profile creation will encrypt the device.

     Note: This is the default implementation by Google.
