The devices enrolled through Scalefusion MDM are sometimes not located in one single place. However, there are mechanisms on the Scalefusion Dashboard through which the locations of devices and other related details can be identified. Location reports give an account of all location-related information tracked under the Scalefusion Dashboard in a systematic form.

This document gives a description of all location-related reports.

We have the following location reports:

  1. Location
  2. Geo-Fence Logs

Who can access

The reports are tied up to the plan that a customer purchases and hence divided into three categories:

  1. Basic: All customers in the Pro and Business plans. New Users are allocated Basic during the trial period
  2. Legacy: All customers in a non-enterprise plan
  3. Advanced: All customers in the Enterprise plan
