I wiped all my devices so that they would be "new" for the next school year. I didn't realize that the static groups would also be wiped and now I get to reenter serial numbers for groups. Is there a better way to set up groups where I can select specific groups for specific app distribution without reentering the serial numbers every year? I would love if the static groups were saved. It doesn't seem like a very efficient way to do it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I am getting round this by creating prestage enrolments for each group of Macs or iOS devices (in our case they are grouped by room or sometimes department) then scoping a smart group to "prestage enrolment completed - <prestage name>" for each prestage, and using those smart groups for deployment of software and settings. We aren't using static groups at all.
