User Categories is a legacy setting that defines a user or a group of users without reference to their location or role. In the current version of AirWatch, this functionality is much better served by making use of child organization groups and user groups.

For Windows Rugged devices only, User Categories are the way to establish multi-user device staging. In such a case, you would create a User Category for each user that needs to share a single Windows Rugged device. You would then associate the Windows Rugged Launcher with the established User Categories, thereby effectively implementing multi-user device staging. For more information, Configure Shared Device Launcher Profiles.
