Industry templates deliver apps and policies for key mobility initiatives. Industry templates expedite deployments and eliminate complexity for IT by guiding administrators through industry-specific mobility initiatives and recommending applications and policies. Admins choose the right applications, assign the template to users, and then deploy the configuration to devices.

Best Practices for Using Industry Templates
Review the following best practices before setting up templates. Detailed specifications and instructions can be found in the iOS Platform Guide.
- Set Customer as the group Type in Organization Group Details. (AirWatch Admin Console v8.2 FP 02 only)
- All user groups must be pre-configured.
- Directory Services must be set up to add directory users.
- Assign one template to one group of devices, so that one business initiative is assigned to one device. If more than one template is assigned to the same group, then all of the apps from both templates will install and the most restrictive policies will be pushed to the device.
