New Chrome policies and improvements in the Google Apps Admin console

The Admin console has been updated with new Chrome policies and improvements to the device details page:

  • A new policy enables users to enter an asset identifier during the enrollment process. The asset ID field in the device details page will now automatically populate with this value if entered at the enrollment screen of the device. On version 44 or above, the asset identifier also appears within the operating system.
  • The device details page now contains a section titled 'System Activity and Troubleshooting'. It contains some of the existing fields as well as the new policies detailed below.

Note: Only devices running on version 44 or above are eligible for the new policies.
