Device management settings now easier to find and navigate in the Admin console

Google Apps Mobility Management allows admins to enforce policies on managed devices in their organizations via the device management settings page in the Admin console. With the continued evolution of our device management (MDM) and application management (MAM) capabilities, however, an ever-growing list of policy settings on a single page has become unwieldy for admins.

With that in mind, we’ve redesigned the device management experience by logically categorizing the settings, making them easier to find and use. For example, all settings applicable to Android devices are now grouped under Android Settings. There are six additional groups of settings: Setup, Password Settings, iOS Settings, Advanced Settings, Device Approvals, and App Management (the individual settings themselves have not changed).
