#mail profiles

Posted by Charles Edge on June 11th, 2015

When you enroll devices into Bushel, you’ll be prompted for a name and email address. We use these two fields to setup the mail profile for users and display who has that device. You can see who a device is assigned to by clicking on the device in Bushel and checking out the Assigned To card, shown here.

There will be times when you need to move the device to another user. To do so, you can either Unassign the device, which will blank out these settings or you can click on “Assign device” to configure a new Name and Email address for the user.

And be careful, because when you reassign a device, the profiles will change, which at a minimum will remove and re-add mail accounts. If you do this en masse, be prepared for re-caching all the mail.

You can also use this method to deploy a generic profile to devices using a script or a tool like Apple Configurator.
