Encourage users to enrol their devices with Microsoft Intune

EMS Landing page

One of the most difficult challenges we face as Intune Administrators is how to get users to enrol their devices.
We hear all the time: What's in it for me? Why should I? It's my personal device and it's private.

We can, of course, force users to enrol by configuring conditional access and preventing access to Exchange and SharePoint services for users that do not enrol. However encouragement and gentle persuasion is often a better strategy. It will certainly make you more popular with your users.

Recently Microsoft published a helping-hand with the "Microsoft Intune End User Enrollment Guide". It's a professional-looking two page document that you can send to your users explaining the importance of protecting corporate data. It explains what may happen on their device and what will not happen on their device, thus alleviating any privacy fears that they may have. The guide also contains high level steps for enrolling the various device types.

The document is really slick and totally customisable. You can change text and add your own company branding.

The zipped package contains Release Notes and the guide in Word, PDF and Adobe InDesign formats.

This is an extract from the guide:

"You are an important part of keeping our corporate data and resources protected. Here’s how you can help: enroll your phone or tablet into Microsoft Intune. Once you enroll, you will be able to continue using your mobile phone or tablet to get your work done, and IT will be able to manage limited aspects of your mobile device to keep us protected. You will not lose access to personal apps and data or need to manually configure company network or email connections. And don’t worry! All your private stuff is still for your eyes only".

This is what it looks like:
