Automatic device naming
To make automatic enrollment suitable for many devices, we would like to be able to configure a device name "template". New devices should automatically be assigned a name according to this template when they are enrolled.
Name templates should support certain dynamic fields:
- Sequential ID: Auto-incrementing counter used for new devices
- Device-type: iPhone/iPad depending on the type of device
This functionality is already available in Apple Configurator 2, so it would be natural to have this available in SimpleMDM as well.
A device name template can now be set under Settings > General. Names will auto-increment as needed.

@Anonymous - You can set this value under Settings > General. It's labeled "New device name format", and specifies how devices will be named when they are first enrolled with SimpleMDM.
Can you elaborate on where this setting is and how the names auto-increment?
