The following conditions and restrictions apply to devices with an Apple iOS operating system:

  • The copying, (cutting/pasting) of business data between business apps is always possible;
  • The saving of business documents is only possible in Microsoft Onedrive or Sharepoint;

  • After 30 minutes (of not using a business app) the PIN will have to be entered again to be able to open business apps.

If you’ve already installed the Office 365 apps to access business data (like your UU mail), the installation of Intune will secure the data. If your UU account is already connected to the applications, this manual might differ slightly.

Application PIN

During the installation of the first business application, you will be required to create an application PIN (see step 11). This also has to be a “complex” PIN. The application PIN will be asked at startup of a business application. After filling in this PIN, the company portal will permit access to the application for a period of 4 hours. Afterwards, you will again be asked for the application PIN at app startup.

If you enter the application PIN wrong 10x, it will have to be reset by following the given instructions.

In this manual, a Samsung Android device with Dutch language settings and the most recent version of Android OS was used. The pictures in this manual might differ with different devices and versions of Android.
