Add a Geofencing Area

You must define a Geofencing area before you can apply one to a device.

  1. Access the Area settings page by navigating to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profile Settings > Areas. Select Add followed by Geofencing Area.
  2. Enter an Address and the Radius of the geofence in kilometers or miles. Also, you may double-click any area on the map to set the central location.

  3. Select Click to Search to view on a map roughly where you want to apply the geofence.


    Integration with Bing maps requires that "insecure content" is loaded on this page. If a location search does not load as expected, you may need to allow "Show all Content" for your browser.

  1. Enter the Area Name (how it appears in the AirWatch Console) and select Save.

Next, you must Apply a Geofence to a Profile.
