Change registereed owner for corporate owned devices
We shouldnt have to reenroll a device everytime a device changes owner. Please can you make it possible to change the device owner for corporate devices so we can propally audit without additional software? Kinda the purpose of an MDM
This feature is now in public preview, so I’m setting the status to “release in process”, which will give you your votes back to vote on the next thing you want us to prioritize.
Thanks for your feedback, and thanks for using Intune!

Just a quick comment that the ability to change the primary user for co-managed devices will be available with the June (2006) Intune service release: https://docs.microsoft.com/mem/intune/fundamentals/whats-new#change-primary-user-on-co-managed-devices.
Need this function for co-managed devices... case scenario: we dont want users in organization to enroll on their own, rather Intune admin will enroll in to device and then compliance policy will be applied
Is there a release date for the Co-managed Support?

When do we get this for iOS and iPadOS devices?
Nick Reed commented
iOS devices? MacOS Devices? Is it on the roadmap, or forgotten now you have done the Windows10 devices? Come on you only did 50% of the fetcher request!
Documentation has been updated to reflect that. Co-managed devices are not in scope yet.
Brian Grinstead commented
yes but not for co-managed devices

here is the same issue
I changed the primary user yesterday and today the primary user changed back to the previous user (the "Enrolled by user UPN" didn't change back to the previous user).
We have experienced the same.
Some process writes back the Primary user to what it was previously :(

I have been testing a few over the last couple of weeks and what I’m observing in the client environment you can make the change and save it. This changes both the enrolled by user UPN to the users email address and the Primary user(preview): to the users name. All good works successfully.
A couple days later check the users device again and the UPN is still the same but the primary user (preview): name changes back to previous user.
All done manually at the moment through the Intune console. An issue I know you guys are still working on....

Also need "primary user" added to the list of columns so it can actually be displayed on the device lists :) Yes please.

We need it also for iOS devices.
We need this for iOS devices, especially in Education. You should be able to change the primary user without wiping the device.

Okay so I can change the registereed own of a device.
But the user that enrolls the device is the owner and administrator.
The registereed is just a name, it is really not important unless he/she becomes the real owner. And administrator of the device.
When will this be available for Apple iOS devices? Excellent to see mention of it for Windows devices coming soon but the scope of the change seems to have forgotten non Windows devices.
Can we expect this to be released by the end of April?

I see primary user in preview but no option to change owner
K. Raisch commented
It seems that the Intune console is prepared for the update in March:
Unfortunately this option seems only available for Windows devices, not for Apple devices...

Not sure if this is available to everyone but we noticed this morning that if we go to the properties of a device in Intune we can now change the Primary User. There are two options, Change primary user and Delete primary user.
Now if only we can get Primary User added as a column on the devices list :)
