Move a Chrome device to an organizational unit

For administrators who manage ChromeOS devices for a business or school.

When you enroll devices in your Google Admin console, devices automatically go in the top-level organizational unit. To apply different settings to a set of Chrome devices, place them in their own organization, below your top-level organization. You can then apply settings to just that organization.
