The Intune for Education team is excited about the recently released Remote Autopilot Reset feature. This new functionality allows your school IT admin to reset devices from the Intune for Education console, hands free.
Together, Windows Autopilot and Microsoft Intune for Education is helping schools take a modern approach to device provisioning and management in the classroom. The remote reset function is another great example of our focus on simplifying the management of devices, in a way that provides more time for teachers to teach, and a richer learning experience for students.
Traditionally, teachers or school IT admins have had to physically go to each device to initiate a PC reset. The old reset unenrolls the device from management and removes it from the network meaning the IT admin has to reconfigure the device in order to make it classroom ready. Now with Autopilot Reset, all user data including user-installed apps and personal settings are removed, while keeping the device enrolled in Intune and connected to Azure AD. This ensures the student’s device is kept up to date with all the latest apps, policies, and settings. The Autopilot Reset can be kicked off directly on the device, or remotely from the Intune for Education console.
Furthermore with the new remote option, you can Autopilot Reset a single device:
