As an administrator, you can get a monthly report of unused company-owned Android devices that haven’t synchronized any work data in the last 30 days. The report is automatically emailed to all super administrators, and any other recipients you specify. Recipients can download the file to review unused devices and who last signed in with them.

Note: Most devices in your company-owned inventory are evaluated for the report, but the following Android devices aren’t included:

  • Personal Android devices in device owner mode (deprecated)
  • Devices with Android 12 or later with a work profile

What’s in the report?

The report is a CSV file that lists the following device details:

  • Serial number and asset tag
  • Date it was first set up
  • Time it last synced
  • The email address of the last user that signed in
