    Hi there, @Nevaehhh! Thanks for reaching out to us!

    You can customize the launcher to display a title with the device ID on the screen. However, you’ll have to manually set the device ID in all devices and this could be time consuming if there are many devices to be transferred.

    My suggestion would be to send a broadcast message with the wildcard %deviceid% to all the devices. To make this easier, you can add all the devices to be transferred to a
    custom device group and then broadcast the message.

    Sending device ID as a broadcast message

     

    Ensure that the View messages sent by admin feature in
    Peripheral Settings is enabled in the policy.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!

    works fine, but what if someone accidentally exits the message box?

    Thanks for reaching out, @Holly!

    The message can be viewed by simply opening the ‘Messages’ app on the device. When you enable the View messages sent by admin feature, the app will automatically appear inside the kiosk mode. No worries!

    Hope this answers your query.

    Cheers!
