  • Not connected in over 7 days or sent data in over 5 days
  • Not connected in over 2 days or sent data in over 1 day
  • Connected in the last 2 days and sent data in the last day

Search for Devices

The Devices page can help you find the status of a device you are concerned about or to remove a broken device from Monitor.

  • Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of Windows or macOS devices
  • Serial numbers of Chromebook devices
  1. Press enter to search
  2. Click the X in the search box to clear the search.

Select Devices

If you are replacing multiple devices or a single device, you can select and remove old device records after reimaging your suite of devices. 

  1. Search in or filter your list of devices.
  2. Go down the page (20 devices displayed per page) until you see the device you want.
  3. Use the following functions:
  • Select All checkbox - check the first checkbox at the top of the list in the column labels row to select all currently displayed devices

  • Remove Devices button - removes the record of the selected device(s) from the portal. This does not uninstall Monitor, and the record will be recreated if the device comes back online.

  • Clear Selected button - deselects currently checked checkboxes

Troubleshooting Connections

Multiple devices haven’t connected for several days.

Network configuration changes are the most common cause of multiple devices failing to connect. 

  1. Verify you have these Monitor domains in your allow-list exceptions on your firewall and/or filter:

  2. Reconnect an affected device to your network. The device must have the Monitor client.
  3. Open a web page like and select a link on the page.
  4. In Monitor, open or refresh the Devices page.
  5. Search for the device’s name or serial number.

The device should appear in the list if you are connecting the device to the internet. If the device cannot connect to the internet, verify the installation. See Installing Monitor
