Set up enrollment notifications

Applies to: Android, iOS/iPadOS, macOS, Windows 10, Windows 11

Set up enrollment notifications in Microsoft Intune to notify employees of newly enrolled devices. Enrollment notifications are sent to assigned users via your selected method: email or push notification. Within a notification, you can:

  • Add a custom message for the user, with information about how to report an unrecognized device.
  • Apply your tenant's branding and customization settings (email notifications only).

Enrollment notifications are supported on these devices:

  • Android devices in bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenarios
  • iOS/iPadOS devices in BYOD scenarios
  • Macs
  • Devices running Windows 10/11, excluding Microsoft Entra hybrid joined devices
  • Autopilot devices, excluding userless scenarios such as Windows Autopilot for pre-provisioned deployment

Example

Prerequisites

To create an enrollment notification, you must:

Enrollment notifications work with user-driven enrollment methods. They aren't supported in userless enrollment scenarios.

You should know

Email notifications appear in the user's inbox. Push notifications appear in the Intune Company Portal apps for iOS/iPadOS, macOS, and Android. Enrollment push notifications aren't supported in the Company Portal for Windows, so they'll never appear there.
