What is Microsoft Intune device management?

As an IT admin, you must ensure that managed devices are providing the resources that your users need to do their work, while protecting that data from risk.

The Devices workload gives you insights into the devices you manage, and lets you activate remote tasks on those devices.

Get to your devices

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.

  2. Select Devices. This view shows detailed information about the individual devices, and what you can do with them, including:

    • Overview shows a visual snapshot of the enrolled devices, how many devices are using the different platforms, and more.

    • All devices shows a list of the enrolled devices you manage.

      Use the Export feature to create a .zip list of all the devices, in increments of 10,000 (Internet Explorer) or 30,000 (Microsoft Edge, Chrome).

      Select any device to view additional details about that device, like hardware details, installed apps, policies, and more.

    • Azure AD devices shows a list of the devices registered or joined with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Learn more about Azure AD device management.

    • Device actions includes a history of the remote actions ran on different devices, including the action, its status, who started the action, and the time.
