Manage Devices in the MTP

Managed Service Provider (MSP) Admins can see all of the devices they manage across all tenant orgs in the Multi-Tenant Portal (MTP), and quickly take action to resolve any issues. You can filter by Organization, Status, or Device OS to quickly see which devices need help and select from options like locking, restarting or shutting down devices.
