InTune Location Management for Ownerless Devices

Our district has a large quantity of Windows devices in InTune, which are being synced to IIQ. Previously we had the option enabled to update asset location to the user location when syncing. This became an issue for any device that had recently been imaged but had not received a new owner yet, primarily loaner and spare devices that we keep at the district tech office. When updating the location in IIQ, the manually set location would be overwritten by the default location from the sync each morning.


Does anyone have a method that is working well to exempt or better manage the ownerless devices, while maintining the asset location sync to user location feature?

@sbloom Thank you for submitting your question to our Community.

Intune should not be setting locations for your devices. I would suggest that you adjust the data map settings in your app settings to prevent Intune from changing that location.
