Businesses can take advantage of the power of Microsoft Intune to manage the Field Service Mobile app.
Security and data protection are important for businesses, especially when working with technical employees deployed in the field. Intune brings this layer of centrally managed control to devices, including corporate-managed devices and bring-your-own-device scenarios. With Intune, administrators can roll out the Field Service Mobile application to their iOS and Android field technicians via standard Intune infrastructure and controls.
This feature enables the Field Service Mobile app as a first-party application within the Intune administration experience. By enabling Intune support, businesses can take advantage of all Intune features including deployment, configuration, security, and updates.
With an Intune-enabled Field Service Mobile app, IT administrators can:
- Add and assign your Field Service Mobile app to user groups and devices, including users in specific groups, devices in specific groups, and more.
- Configure the Field Service Mobile app to start or run with specific settings enabled and update your existing app when already on the device.
- See reports and track app usage.
This feature is available in the Unified Interface only.
