The Android for Work settings page lets you configure the various options for integrating with Android for Work prior to enrolling Android for Work devices. Android for Work configuration uses a wizard to help you set up the integration for devices.


The Configuration tab walks you through the Android for Work setup. You will first be redirected to Google Play for Work to begin configuration, and upon completion you will be redirected back here. For steps to walk through setup, see Android for Work Setup Overview. .
