Location Reports

The devices enrolled through Scalefusion MDM are sometimes not located at one single place. However, there are mechanisms on 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 Scalefusion Dashboard, in a systematic form.

This document gives description of all location related reports.

We have the following location reports:

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

Basic: All customers in Pro and Business plan. New Users are allocated Basic during the trial period
