Add more users

After your cloud infrastructure is set up and you have a device management strategy in place, you may need to add more users and you want the same policies to apply to these users. You can add new users to your tenant simply by adding them to the Office 365 groups. Adding new users to Office 365 groups automatically adds them to the corresponding groups in Intune for Education.

See Add users to Office 365 to learn more. Once you're done adding new users, go to the Intune for Education console and verify that the same users were added to the Intune for Education groups as well.

Connect other devices to your cloud infrastructure

Adding a new device to your cloud-based tenant is easy. For new devices, you can follow the steps in Set up Windows 10 education devices. For other devices, such as those personally-owned by teachers who need to connect to the school network to access work or school resources (BYOD), you can follow the steps in this section to get these devices connected.

Note

These steps enable users to get access to the organization's resources, but it also gives the organization some control over the device.

To connect a personal device to your work or school

  1. On your Windows device, go to Settings > Accounts.
  2. Select Access work or school and then click Connect in the Connect to work or school page.
  3. In the Set up a work or school account window, enter the user's account info.

  4. Enter the account password and then click Sign in to authenticate the user.

    Depending on the organization's policy, the user may be asked to update the password.

  5. After the user's credentails are validated, the window will refresh and will now include an entry that shows the device is now connected to the organization's MDM. This means the device is now enrolled in Intune for Education MDM and the account should have access to the organization's resources.
