Assigning tags to devices adds another layer of organization to your device fleet. As your device count grows, rather than searching for devices based on their individual name, you can instead filter devices based on tags you've assigned to them.
Imagine you're a school district and need to associate devices with a given school. With tags, you cannot only tag a device to a specific school, but you can also add a classroom or teacher!
This makes device tags a great solution if you want to quickly search for a specific device or batch of devices to monitor health, troubleshoot, change configurations, launch device commands, etc.
💡See our Navigating Your Devices guide for more information on searching, filtering, and sorting devices.
