Configure Device Enrollment Notifications in Intune

Let’s learn how to create enrollment notifications in Intune MEM Admin portal. Set up enrollment notifications in Microsoft Intune to notify users of newly enrolled devices.

Starting with Intune Service release 2209, IT admins can create a custom message and include information in the notification about how to report an unrecognized device. Intune delivers enrollment notifications via email or push notifications.

With the addition of enrollment notifications on Windows, Android or Apple devices, an administrator can send a customized email notification to an end user’s email account upon a new enrollment. They can also send a push notification that will appear in an enrolled Android or iOS/iPadOS Company Portal app.

End users will then be asked to verify the enrollment and, if suspicious, it can be reported from the notification. The Enrollment Notifications improve security by notifying users if someone enrolls a device with their credentials.

  1. hi Jitesh,

    I’m testing this since last week, and for now i’m mitiged.
    most of the time, a wronf device name is sent, i’m using it with hybrid join, my device name is APXXXXXXXX, and the name in email is DESKTOP-XXXXX.
    also, some of the time, the only information in email is device name, not the rest.

    Could i’ve done something wrong ?
