    Dedicated devices > Shared device groups
    .
  2. Click The Add icon.
  3. Type a name and a description for the shared device group.
  4. Type the username for device activation.
  5. To require users to accept terms of service when they check out a shared device, select
    Enable terms of service
    and specify the terms of the service.
  6. For each user that you want to add to the group, in the
    Granted users
    section, search for and click the user.
    Users can belong to multiple shared device groups.
  7. To assign an app or app group, in the
    Assigned apps
    section, click The Add icon and do the following:
    1. Search for and select the app that you want to assign to the group.
    2. Click
      Next
      .
    3. For
      iOS
      or
      Android
      apps, to require users to follow the actions defined for apps in the compliance profile assigned to them, in the
      Disposition
      drop-down list, select
      Required
      .
      If the app group supports
      Android Enterprise
      , the disposition can be set to
      Required
      only.
    4. To allow users to install and uninstall the app, in the
      Disposition
      drop-down list, select

      drop-down list, select the settings to associate with the app or app group.
    6. If available, for
      iOS
      and
      Android
      devices, select an app configuration to assign to the app.
    7. If you use
      Android Enterprise
      and have created tracks for apps in the
      Google Play
      console, select a track to assign to the app.
    8. Click
      Assign

      You can't add
      BlackBerry Dynamics
      apps to device groups because entitlements can only be granted to users. Any
      BlackBerry Dynamics
      apps included in app groups that you add to device groups will not be assigned to users.
      If your environment supports
      Android Enterprise
      , you can't add
      Android
      apps that have an optional disposition to device groups.
      Google Play for Work
      can assign apps only to
      Google
      User IDs, not to device IDs. If you add
      Android
      apps that have a required disposition to a device group, the apps will be installed, but the apps will not be listed in
      Google Play for Work
      .
