The menu available in management console varies depending on the role you are assigned to, whether a team administrator, a group manager or just an ordinary member.

A member user is not allowed to access the management console, so Management tab does not appear in the menu.

A group manager can see 4 items in Management tab: Users, All Computers, All Device and Deployment.

The team Administrator has 6 items in Management tab: Users, All Computers, All Device, Grouping, Deployment and Settings.

We will explain the functionality of each items in Management Console from the team administrator's perspective.
