Create Intune groups to organize users and devices

Groups in Intune give you great flexibility for managing your devices and users. You can set up groups to suit your organizational needs (for example, by geographic location, department, or hardware characteristics). You can use groups to perform a wide variety of administrative tasks at scale, from setting policies for a set of users to deploying applications to a set of devices.

To Create Intune groups to organize users and devices, you can follow below steps:

To create a Device group

  1. In the Intune administration console, click Groups > Overview > Create Group.
  2. 38

  3. For the Group name, type “My Trial Devices” and from the parent group list, select All Devices, and then click Next.
  4. 39

  5. On the Define Membership Criteria page, select All devices to indicate that the group includes both mobile devices and computers.
  6. 40

  7. On the Define Direct Membership page, click Next. If you had created a group that did not include all devices, and you wanted to add specific devices to your new group, you could do that here.
  8. 41

  9. On the Summary page, review the actions that will be taken, and then click Finish.
  10. 42

  11. You can find the newly created group in the Groups list, in the Groups workspace, under All Devices. From here, you can also edit or delete the group.
