Add Device

Create a Windows or Mac Agent one-click installer directly from the graphical Dashboard.

  2. Select your Client and Site combination (with the option create new ones via Add Client or Add Site)
  3. Choose the target Device OS type, Windows or Mac
  4. Click Next to proceed and download the installer (use Retry download if the file does not automatically download)

Once downloaded, you can use the same installer to manually deploy the Agent on as many computers as required at the Client and Site associated with the package.

  2. Uncompress the file
  3. Run the Agent installer

After installation, the device automatically appears on the main Dashboard under the Client and Site entered in the Add Device dialog.

Only those users with Agents permissions enabled in Roles and Permissions can access the Add Device wizard.
