The 'Logged in user' column shows who is currently signed-in to the device.

  • The username is prefixed with the active directory (AD) domain, workgroup, or individual device that the user is logged-in to:
  • Active Directory - Name is shown as <AD domain name>/<user name>
  • Workgroup - Name is shown as <workgroup name>/<user name>
  • No network - Name is shown as <device name>/<user name>

Click the    icon to copy the username to the clipboard.

Note. The logged-in user is not necessarily the device 'owner' (the person to whom the device is assigned in the Endpoint Manager).
