Once you have added a Geofencing area, you can apply it to a profile and combine it with other payloads to create more robust profiles.

For example, you can define geofence areas around each of your offices. Then add a Restrictions payload that disallows access to the Game Center, multiplayer gaming, YouTube content, and other settings. Once activated, employees of the organization group to whom the profile is applied no longer have access to these functions while in the office.

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles > ADD and select a platform.

  2. Select Install only on devices inside selected areas on the General tab. An Assigned Geofence Areas box displays. If no Geofence Area has been defined, the menu directs you back to the Geofence Area creation menu.
  3. Enter one or multiple Geofencing areas to this profile.
  4. Configure a payload such as Passcode, Restrictions, or Wi-Fi that you want to apply only while devices are inside the selected Geofencing areas.
  5. Select Save & Publish.

If a user manually disables location services on their iOS device, AirWatch can no longer collect location updates. AirWatch considers the device to be in the location where services were disabled.
