Quick Find and Update

The quick find and update feature makes looking up and updating a single device easy. This feature can be helpful when working through a stack of devices, during device distribution to students in a 1-to-1 program, or when inventorying a Chromebook cart.

You can navigate to this feature in two ways:

From the Utilities tab



From the Extensions menu




We recommend clearing the Devices tab at the beginning of a batch of single-device updates, to keep track of all updates performed.

  1. Using the Search by drop-down, select how to search for a device; Serial Number, Annotated Asset ID, or Annotated User.
  2. Enter the search criteria.
  3. Click Search.
  4. To change status, click the Pencil icon, select from the Change device status to field, and then click Set New Status. The new status pushes to Google immediately.
  5. Updates any of the editable fields: Org Unit Path, User, Asset ID, Location, and Notes.
  6. Click PUSH UPDATE to commit changes.

Note: Device details are also visible in the quick find and update panel. Click Device Details to go to that tab.
