Add multiple iOS mobile devices

You can add multiple devices to N-central at the same time by: 

  • Sending multiple invites to a single email address to allow one individual to add more than one device.
  • Using a CSV file that you create and upload directly to the N-central dashboard for bulk invites, rather than enter the details individually or by sending multiple invite registrations to one individual.

  1. In the left-hand navigation menu, click ViewsAll Devices.

Each CSV file can contain information for five hundred devices and must be in the following format:

client_name,site_name,device_name,first_name,last_name,email_address,phone_number, send_sms(0/1),byod(0/1)

  • client_name and site_name must match the corresponding entries in the Dashboard
  • only one occurrence of a device_name is permitted per site
  • send_sms and byod fields can be either (0) for no or (1) for yes
  • phone_number is optional so you can leave it blank. For example, johndoe@mail.it,,0,1

You must save the CSV file as UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1 (ISO Latin-1).
