Frequently Asked Questions

Question: I have just purchased the license and now cannot see my enrolled devices. Will the devices unlock and lose all their configurations?

Answer: Devices will neither be unlocked nor lose configurations. You need to apply the license to your device to be able to see it.

Question: Why is the Apply License button not active?

Answer: It will be active once you have a device added under your license.

Question: I need to purchase additional device licenses - when it asks for the number - is it the additional number or the total number of devices, including the ones in the original licenses?

Answer: It is the additional number of devices you need to enter

Question: I just made a payment to renew the license. Do I need to "apply" for the license, or are we good to go?

Answer: No, you do not need to apply for the license again.

Question: Are the licenses available for every device group or only for groups on which it is applied?

Answer: Licenses are not associated with a device group. They are only associated with individual devices or devices.

Question: I am getting an error when trying to enroll a new tablet via a QR code saying, "maximum number of devices/users reached contact your Admin".
