Available Windows task types

The following task types are available for Windows task bundles:

Enroll

When the task is transferred to devices, an enrollment email is sent to the email address that is configured for each device. Users must perform the steps that are described in the email to enroll their device.

When the task is transferred to a device that is already enrolled, the task is skipped.

Assign policy

Select a policy from the list of available device policies. For information on how to add policies to this list, see Policies.

When the task is transferred to devices, the policy is silently assigned to the device. If a device policy is already assigned, it is replaced.

Install app

Select an app from the list of available apps. For information on how to add apps to this list, see Add app.

When the task is transferred to devices, the app is installed silently.

If the app is already installed on a device that receives the task, it is updated.

Uninstall app

Select an app from the list of available apps.

The list includes apps you have configured on the Sophos Mobile server and apps installed on any of the managed Windows computers - with the exception of Windows system apps.

When the task is transferred to devices, the selected app is uninstalled silently.

Note You can only uninstall apps that have been installed by Sophos Mobile. If you try to uninstall an app installed by the user, the task fails.

Unenroll

When the task is transferred to devices, they are unenrolled from Sophos Mobile. See Unenroll devices. Device users do not need to confirm the operation.

You can’t add an Unenroll task and a Wipe task to the same task bundle.

Wipe

When the task is transferred to devices, they are reset to their factory settings. Device users do not need to confirm the operation.
CAUTION Use this task type with care. All data on the devices that receive the task is deleted without user confirmation.

You can’t add an Unenroll task and a Wipe task to the same task bundle.
