Assign Cart Slot Number to Device

General Information

Network Managers may find it easier to physically locate devices within carts if they assign the cart’s slot number to each device within Jamf. Unfortunately, this must be done per device within Jamf, but will save a lot of headaches when you have to find a specific device within a cart.

Note: If you use Atlas’ option to delete Jamf record when re-enrolling devices, the assigned Cart Slot Number will be removed and the process will need to be completed again.
