Computer Groups


Devices within Computer Management can (optionally) be arranged into Groups with custom names to keep the console organized. For a device to appear in the SmartDeploy Console, the client must be installed.

Follow these steps to create and edit Computer Groups in the Computer Management workspace of the SmartDeploy Console.
 

Create a New Group

  1. In the Computer Management workspace of the SmartDeploy Console, select one or more computers that you want to add to a group.

    To multi-select computers, click on the first computer you wish to select. Then use Ctrl-Click (for multiple, specific computers), Shift-Click (for a range of computers), or Ctrl-A (to Select All).
  2. Right-click the selected computer(s), mouse over Group, and then click Create.


    Note: You will automatically be taken to the Group view of the Computer Management workspace. Your new group will appear next to the All Computers group.
     

Rename a Group

  1. In the Groups view of the Computer Management workspace, click the group name text or right-click | Rename to enable the text editor.
  2. Highlight and delete the existing text, and then type a new name for the group, and press Enter or click outside the group box to save.
     

Join an Existing Group
