These are the steps, which needs to be performed before managing a mobile device:
ManageEngine MDM is powered by Zoho. Names like "Zoho" and "ManageEngine" are used interchangeably, however both Zoho and ManageEngine are divisions of Zoho Corporation.
Creating an account with MDM (ZOHO)
The first thing you need to do, is to create an account with MDM. In fact this account is created with ZOHO, which in turn is used to access MDM. Registering your company details for account creation is only for your management purpose. Only the first user/admin is prompted to register your company details with Zoho and becomes the super admin (if MDM was the first Zoho service being used in the organization). Users added subsequently have to sign up or sign in using their email, and accept the invitation sent by the administrator.
You have to provide the following details to register your organization and sign up for the MDM account:
- Name of the User (Admin)
- Name of the company
- Corporate Email
- Phone Number (Optional)
After filling in the above mentioned details, you are redirected to the MDM product. You can view the features supported and navigate across the product, however you have to confirm the registration link, sent to your email address to enroll a mobile device.
Admin/first user has to accept the mail sent from MDM and confirm the account creation. Once you have successfully verified your MDM account, then you can start enrolling devices and adding technicians. When you start enrollment process, users is sent two emails, one would be to join the organization and the second to accept the enrollment invitation. When technicians are added, they receive an invite, to join the organization. Organization here refers to your MDM account.
