Customizing registration messages

The registration process is a critical part of deployment. You can customize the registration messages involved in this process by editing the registration templates. Registration templates enable you to specify content and basic formatting using HTML markup.

Ivanti EPMM sends multiple messages related to registration:

  • Registration SMS
  • Registration email and reminder email
  • Post registration email

These messages may vary by:

  • Platform
  • Language

In addition, messages may vary by device type:

  • Phones
  • PDAs

To accommodate this range of messages:

  • Separate registration templates are provided for each language/platform combination.
  • Each registration template contains separate text for each registration message type.
  • Each registration template contains separate text for phones and PDAs.
  • For when Ivanti EPMM discovers device users that have not downloaded the MDM profile, reminder email scheduling capabilities are provided

Scheduling reminder notifications for completing registration

This feature works on iOS devices only.

Ivanti EPMM detects whether device users have completed registration or not. To ensure that device users complete their registration, set up notifications to remind device users to complete the registration process. It is recommended that a notification is sent to the device user every hour.

Notifications are only possible if the registration is done within the [email protected] registration. No reminders are needed for Apple Device Enrollment registrations because the MDM profile is always installed as part of the Apple Device Enrollments.

Procedure 

  1. In the Admin Portal, select Settings > System Settings.
  2. Select iOS > MDM. The MDM page displays.
  3. Select the Send email to user and notification to client if MDM profile is not installed check box.

    The field expands, displaying additional fields.

  4. Select how often to send a reminder email in the every hour field. If the device user registers within 8 minutes of the hour, the device user will not get a reminder until the next hour.
  5. Select the Maximum Number of Emails / Notifications to be sent. A maximum of 24 emails/notifications can be sent within a 24-hour period.
  6. Select Save.
