Assigning Asset Tags to Devices

Asset tags can be used to easily identify your devices or to link them to your existing inventory system. The asset tags are shown in the devices overview and on the devices details page in the "Inventory Details" section. Additionally, you can use a device's asset tag in profiles, device names, and wallpapers by using the %AssetTag% variable.
