Table: Windows Phone 8.1 device enrollment setup workflow
Create a device policy.
Create a device policy in which you enable MDM for Windows Phone 8.1 devices. The policy must target the group or users for whom you want it to apply. As a best practice, you may want to filter target device ownership to Any (that is, corporate or personal devices). Customize your policy by configuring and applying settings and the profiles that are applicable to Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
Customize the Windows Phone 8.1 enrollment experience.
You can specify whether you want users to be prompted for device ownership information and you can customize the end-user license agreement. You can also add your organization's name to the device enrollment screen.
Register the Windows Push Notification Service (WNS) with Mobility Suite.
Not required for SaaS customers. Optional for on-premises customers.
Mobility Suite communicates device policy changes to enrolled Windows Phone 8.1 users at set intervals. If you are an on-premises customer and want the policy updates communicated dynamically, you can register for WNS credentials.
If you are a SaaS customer, Mobility Suite has performed the necessary WNS registration. Policy updates are dynamically communicated to enrolled Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
Simplify the Windows Phone 8.1 enrollment process.
You can simply the Windows Phone 8.1 enrollment process for your users by setting up email address auto-discovery. The benefit of auto-discovery is that users need only enter their email address during the Windows Phone 8.1 enrollment process. They don't need to enter the Mobility Suite server name.
Users can still enroll their Windows Phone 8.1 devices without auto-discovery. However, an additional step in the enrollment process is required.
Unlike iOS and Android platforms, no Work Hub installs on users' Windows Phone 8.1 devices. Windows Phone 8.1 device enrollment must be performed entirely by your users. Learn what information users need to know to successfully enroll their devices.
