My startpage

You can define your personal start page for each user. If the terms and conditions are initially accepted, the dashboard is automatically set as the start page.

Custom separators for CSV upload

For CSV uploads there is a possibility to choose between comma and semicolon as separator for data sets.


Windows 11 Support

Relution’s compatibility with the new Windows 11 operating system is ensured. All previous Relution MDM features for Windows 10 Home, Professional and Education are still supported. The update of managed devices with Relution can be performed without any problems.

Secure Mail Gateway

The Secure Mail Gateway can now also be used for Windows devices. In the Relution settings, the operating system can be selected under Permissions for enrolled devices, and certain Windows versions can be excluded.

The globally configured Secure Mail Gateway can then be activated via the Exchange configuration for Windows.

Alternatively, an Exchange Host can still be defined manually.

Android Enterprise

Personal profile for Android Enterprise managed device (COPE)

For Android Enterprise devices, it is possible to set up a personal profile on a managed device. For this purpose, the type “Set up managed device with a personal profile” must be selected in the second step when creating an enrollment in order to use the enrollment type “Personal profile”.

For multi-enrollments, this option is also available when creating enrollments.

After the device has been registered in Relution, the enrollment type “Personal profile” is displayed in the device inventory and the “Personal” and “Work” sections are automatically available on the device. The device can now be used privately, but is under the full control of the MDM. Unlike a private device with a work profile, the user cannot delete the work profile here.

The device details also show whether the personal profile is allowed.

The screen on the Android device is divided into the “Personal” and “Work” sections. It can be switched at the bottom of the display.
