Using the Getting Started Wizard

The Getting Started Wizard serves as a checklist that walks you through the settings step by step for Workspace ONE UEM. It presents only those modules within your specific deployment, producing a configuration experience tailored to your environment.

Navigate the Getting Started Wizard

The Getting Started Wizard main menu operates in a way that is most convenient to you. It not only tracks how far along you are in the configuration process, you can start, pause, restart later, rewind, review, and even change prior responses.

  • Initiate the first step in a submodule by selecting Start Wizard. Here, you configure settings for each feature by answering questions and accessing the exact pages within the UEM console. As you complete each submodule, the percentage counter in the upper-right corner progresses and displays how far along you are in completing the submodule.
  • If you stop a submodule before completing it, you can return to where you left off by selecting Continue.
  • You can opt out of any submodule by selecting Skip Section, which temporarily deactivates the Continue button and inserts a Resume Section link. Enable the Continue button once more by selecting the Resume Section link.

The Getting Started page is split into four submodules: Workspace ONE, Device, Content, and Application. Each submodule has its own set of steps. The Getting Started Wizard tracks shared steps among all submodules so you never have to complete the same step twice.

  • Workspace ONE – Representing unimpeded access from any employee or corporate owned device. Secure connectivity to enterprise productivity applications such as email, calendar, contacts, documents, and more. Instant, Single Sign-On (SSO) access to mobile, cloud, and Windows applications. Powerful data security that protects the enterprise and employees against compromised devices.

    For more information about Workspace ONE, see VMware Workspace ONE Documentation.

  • Device – Perform actions on MDM enrolled devices such as lock, notify, or enterprise wipe. You can configure email, restrictions, settings, and more by deploying device profiles. You can ensure that you meet security policies for your device fleet by configuring compliance policies. Manage your devices using the best information learned from the Dashboard and Monitor.

  • Content – Deploy content & access it within the Content Locker application. View & Manage your content with Content Dashboards, Reports, and Logs. Share and collaborate with others using personal content. Integrate with existing repositories and deploy your content to mobile devices.
  • Application – Deploy internally developed or publicly available free or purchased applications. Users can search, download, and install applications when you deploy a custom App Catalog. Integrate with compliance policies and application control profiles by making allowlist and denylist of applications. Configure advanced application management options like application scanning.

Navigate the Workspace ONE, Device, Content, and Application Wizards

Each of the four submodules displays a list of sections representing features that you can configure or ignore, according to the needs of your organization. Features not configured display an empty Incomplete check box while configured features display a green Complete check mark.

  • You can define settings for the feature you are interested in by selecting the Configure button.
  • Review or change settings of a complete feature by selecting the Edit button.
  • The percentage completed progress bar progresses as you complete each feature.
  • Most features have a Video button next to the Configure or Edit button. This video lets you see the feature in action and aid your understanding of how it might be useful to your organization.
  • You can skip some features in the submodule without penalty toward the percentage completed progress bar. Remove the feature from your list by selecting the Skip This Step button where available. To display the feature once again, select the Reactivate button.

Some features and functions have prerequisites. For example, Mobile Single Sign-On requires that you have already configured Enterprise Connector, Active Directory, and Workspace ONE Access. Where possible, you can initiate the configuration of these required features by selecting the provided button.

Enable the Getting Started Wizard Manually

For a new Workspace ONE UEM implementation, access the Getting Started page from the main menu. However, you can manually enable the Getting Started Wizard at any time. Manually enabling the Getting Started Wizard restarts the walk-through.

  1. Select any organization group other than the top level group.
  2. Navigate to Groups & Settings > Groups > Organization Groups > Organization Group Details. Ensure that you are currently at a customer-level organization group. If the OG you selected is not a Customer type and the drop-down menu selector is deactivated (greyed out), then you must select another OG.

    This screenshot shows the Organization Group Details view, which can tell you what the OG's type is.

  3. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > System > Getting Started.

  4. You can activate each of the Getting Started sections that you want by selecting Enable.
