Adding an Owner to a Laptop

You can assign users, domain users, and user groups as laptop owners. Owners can access the Web Console and the Edge Monitor tool. You can also transfer the ownership of a laptop by adding a new owner and then removing the old owner. You can add multiple owners to a laptop so that the laptop can be managed by multiple users in the Web Console.

Users who register a laptop as part of installing the Laptop package are automatically assigned as the laptop owner.
