Self Service Device Actions in the Intune Company Portal provide several advantages, empowering users to take control of their devices and reducing the workload on IT admins. Here are a few:

  • Self Service Device Actions empower end-users by allowing them to perform common device management tasks without the need for IT administrator involvement. This gives users greater control over their devices and reduces their reliance on IT support.


  • Self Service Device Actions help to save IT time by allowing users to independently perform common device management tasks. This reduces the workload on IT admins, freeing up time.


  • These Actions can be used to enforce security policies on devices, such as requiring a passcode or enforcing device encryption. This ensures that devices are secure and compliant with company policies.
