We need to store an inventory number for each device and search by it in the device list.

How can we add a custom variable to the device?

You can add up to 3 custom fields for the device.

Open Settings - Language and other settings, and define your custom fields.

After saving settings, you will get an additional field in the "Edit device", and you can display the new column in the device list (by using Settings - Device Table View).

The checkbox "Multiline" displays the edit field as a textarea (useful for bulk content).

The checkbox "Send to device" sends the value of a custom field to the device. This could be useful if your Headwind MDM launcher is customized.

Notice: custom fields can also be used to get additional information from devices. But this also requires customization of the Headwind MDM launcher.
