2.  Help guide

9.Web Applications : shortcut to web resources

10. Mac OS devices (v10.10-10.10.3) can also be managed as well

11. 'App Protection' feature is valid for Enterprise applications and Fiori Apps

12. When i clicked on 'Add more' option for Language, i dont see any other choice than English (US). Is this kind of limitation on trial version?



13. 'Deploy as Android for Work App' option was disabled by default.


You have enable 'Android For work' first. (device > SETTINGS>Android For work settings)
