Change Device name for bulk number of devices enrolled in Hexnode using wildcard

How do I change the default device name? After enrolling with Apple DEP, all devices are listed as iPhone. I want to put a wildcard in so it auto updates when we change users.

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Hexnode has a feature to assign friendly names.  The following wildcards can be used to set friendly name for the devices: %deviceid%, %mail%, %imei%, %osname%, %serialnumber%, %osversion%, %username%
    To set friendly name for large number of devices:

    • Navigate to Manage-> Devices and select the desired devices.
    • Click on the Actions button and choose the option ‘Set Friendly name’.
    • Enter the desired name (can include wildcards). Click Rename.

    Need more info? Check out the help doc on setting friendly name using Hexnode MDM.

    Cheers!
